Quay Dash
FADER article:
Quay Dash is a rapper and a solo artist from the Bronx, New York City. Her work looks into her experiences as a black transgender woman living in modern day America. Quay has performed and DJ’ed at nightclubs, concert venues, and art galleries across the United States and Canada and her first project, her EP “Transphobic” was released in September 2016. Quay promptly joined Peaches for her North American tour after the release of her EP and she currently lives on the Lower East Side, in Manhattan.

Princess Nokia
Destiny Frasqueri, better known as Princess Nokia, née Wavy Spice, aka Destiny, is as metamorphic as her stage names. In 2010, she made her debut in New York’s underground grime scene, releasing anthems like the sing-song ’90s-nostalgic “Bitch I’m Posh.” A free-flowing entity, Spice became Princess Nokia in 2014, dropping Metallic Butterfly, the anime-inspired, futuristic mixtape where Destiny takes on the roles of sexy Internet hacker, Boricua cyborg, and Taíno goddess. Ever-changing, she moved from the early 2000s Myspace layout-vibes found in “Cybiko” for a more soulful, ‘70s inspired sound heard in “Soul Train,” as she dances down the streets of the L.E.S.
Back to Princess Nokia, her newest EP, 1992, explores identity, race, dismantles the male gaze, all the while staying true to her inner Boricua banshee. “Who Dat,” the latest single off of 1992, makes men uncomfortable, challenges Western notions of beauty, and brings the power back to the pussy!
