knifesex is an NYC-based female solo artist, producer, and DJ. Prior to launching her solo project, she served as a producer and lead vocalist for NYC band The Harrow, and as one half of the electronic duo Synesect.
She has also performed as a live member of Public Memory and produced the track called Cinder for the album What I Speak I Create by a place both wonderful and strange.
She is the founder of Hathor, a collective of female solo electronic producers, and the co-founder of New Jack Witch, a collective of urban witchcraft practitioners.
Musically, her work experimentally draws from elements of post-industrial, noise, and trip hop. Thematically her music is heavily influenced by feminism and spirituality, specifically witchcraft and the occult.
Her work is primarily devotional and serves as both a form of ritual purification and a vehicle for ecstatic dance.
She released her first EP, Deipna, on the OWLs label in January of 2017 and will release her first full-length album, dedicated to the goddess Babalon, in Fall 2017 on 3t3rnal Records.
