ARTIST OF THE DAY
New York University
Besides having the coolest name we’ve ever heard, New York bassist/songwriter/DJ Blu DeTiger weaves disco house music, alt, and slap bass, not to mention Blondie and Stones influences, into a groovy tapestry that makes you want to dance like it’s 1979. “Mad Love,” her latest single, is a funky homage to the New York underground and warehouse parties that raised her. Take one listen and you’ll hear the commitment. Bohemian experimentation, no-fucks-given, DIY fun, and affection for all things glitter. She’s got a cool handle, yeah, but Blu DeTiger has so much more.
