Having previously lent her voice to the London based cosmic jazz collective Nostalgia 77 and renowned German beatmaker Dexter, Yosa Peit settled into the lab and developed an intriguing musical sphere of her own. On her debut EP ›Constellation‹, Yosa Peit has crafted her own brand of soul miniatures, emerging under influences of house, disco, krautrock, psych, and hip hop. The singer and producers’ EP is out since September 2015 on the Berlin label The Gym, run by Brandt Brauer Frick and body building associates. Yosa Peit mostly defies conventional song expectations yet leaves the listener rewarded all the same. An alchemist in search of the unlikely balance of elements, she embraces analog and digital sound. It’s indeed a strange balance created here – elegant minimalistic funk and soul played by Yosa on synthesizers, wurlitzer, bass guitar, percussion and more, mixed with dusty samples that she puts together with a certain idiosyncratic badass attitude.
For 2016, Yosa Peit is receiving a grant in the amount of 3,500 euros to further develop her musical endeavor.
