TYGAPAW is a multi-disciplined musician, producer and dj, born and raised in Mandeville, Jamaica, based in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Tygapaw infuses her Jamaican ancestry into a lush and aggressive musical styling perfect for the inclusive spaces she so often curates. Her versatile production is a clear representation of her individuality: queer, black, and fearless. She’s the founder of Fake Accent, which started in 2014 as a monthly queer club night based in Brooklyn and has been developed into a record label in 2019 centering black electronic music artists. Paper Magazine listed her as one of the “50 LGBTQ Artists you should prioritize” in 2018 and she is one of shesaid.so Alternative Power 100 Music List 2019 honorees. Tygapaw sets the bar high for the first release on her Fake Accent imprint with her latest EP “Handle With Care”. Visceral noise, relentless club rhythms, and intimate vocal samples collide across five tracks of uncompromising body music. A searingly bold statement from one of NYC’s and Jamaica’s finest.
