Gayance Shares Stunning Album ‘Mascarade’

It's a vivid, arresting listen from the Montreal creator...

Montreal based figure Gayance has shared new album ‘Mascarade’ in full.

A writer, broadcaster, film maker, and DJ, Aïsha Vertus is a key component of Montreal’s music scene, blessed with drive and impeccable taste. Having assisted on crating POP Montreal and produced a documentary on the city’s beat-making community, she’s someone steeped in club culture and the creative process.

New album ‘Mascarade’ is pieced together under her artist name, with Gayance becoming a focal point for her disparate influences. Moving from soulful introspection to jazz grooves, she flips between house and hip-hop, from the playful to the pointed.

Out now on Rhythm Section, it’s a vivid, arresting listen, wit Gayance commenting:

“It’s the story of my 20’s. I pay homage to this kid everybody knew, but not deeply. It’s about retrieving a power that has always been mine, making peace with the past and moving forward.”

Tune in now.
