Hey Ladies!!! FISHEYE

I have mad respect for artists who are willing to step outside of the box of predescribed genres and ride the waves of experimentation toward unfamiliar shores. The ladies of FISHEYE immediately won me over with their poetic musical experiments and their heart-hitting philosophical stance. Their debut album THE DEATH OF THE FRESH is a breath of fresh air coming from the heart of the creative underground. Check it on their myspace page.

In their own words, FISHEYE is:
ASIA: A ghetto emcee, scholar, and revolutionary grappling with the question of whether revolution can occur without violence. A fringe anarchist who is studying the nature of capitalism, communism, socialism and anarchy in an attempt to discover the blueprint for a more harmonious, equitable and "free" society. An adept emcee who weaves politics into her lyrics, she wants more than anything to put her rhymes out and have them transform enough minds to create a "critical mass" of humanity who will create the new society. POWERS: Freestyling, streetfighting, charisma, de-ciphering codes and systems of information MISS DISSYA: A ghetto deejay, musical scholar and electronic musician. Her mission is to collect all music of all marginalized peoples, specifically music descended from the African Diaspora, and the disappearing Indigenous World. It is her mission to somehow liberate the airwaves from the steady stream of sex, utlraviolence, and wack music which corrupts the masses. POWERS: Charm, hypnosis, musical alchemy, psychic warfare, computer hacking Asia and Miss Dissya live in dangerous times…

zaraphyn follicle is my favorite sound. i her music resonates deep within me...her sound carries something sacred within it. 'money tree' feels like the music heard a ritual ceremony!

though the sound is the same, her myspace has been renamed to XAPRHYN PHOLLICLE DISMPHONIEZ....
