Formed by their musical alter egos MHYSA and lawd knows, SCRAAATCH is the sound and performance art duo of Philadelphia-based artists E. Jane and chukwumaa. Originally from Maryland, the pair have since performed and exhibited their sound and media experiments at the likes of MoMA’s PS1, the New Museum in New York and Philadelphia’s ICA, and contributed their sounds and socially critical voices to African diaspora collective NON Worldwide and Rabit’s Halcyon Veil. Drawing from an uninhibited range of styles and sounds, SCRAAATCH’s performances merge influences from African diasporic art and contemporary US culture with vocal pop, rap, R&B and experimental electronics to create a sonic dramaturgy of IRL and URL resistance. E. Jane will also be performing as self-described “underground popstar for the cyber resistance” MHYSA, whose recent, much lauded debut album fantasii explores the titular notion of fantasy via themes of vulnerability, sensuality, Afro-Pessimism, and Black femme agency.


LSDXOXO is a Philadelphia native who has started to make his mark in the New York clubbing underground. He is a core member of Mike Q’s Qween Beat collective and is aligned with Venus X’s incendiary Ghetto Gothik crew, whose parties have ignited a new style, mindset, politics and sonic radicalism within contemporary experimental club culture. LSDXOXO’s sound both fits into and stands out in the Qween Beat and Ghetto Gothik worlds. It’s evil, sexy, in-your-face, powerful club music, taking from rap, pop, baile funk, ballroom, industrial, goth and more hardcore techno styles, and boiling them all down into horror movie-esque crashes, soaring pop melodies and irreverent, Internet-centric vocals.
