We The Plug Presents: VAMPA & ZIA at Simons 08.10.19
Info + Tickets:
Emily by day, VAMPA by night.
After discovering her passion for electronic music in college, VAMPA began to energize Chicago’s bass music scene, releasing tunes that showcase both her songwriting ability and sultry vocals. She signed with The GRAVEDANCER Agency in 2018, and has been consistently mesmerizing crowds since.
VAMPA is a bona fide genre-bender. Her ability to layer her signature delicate melodies over pounding synths evokes the sensation of swirling darkness and light together. Her energy is unmistakable — VAMPA has come to suck our blood and break our necks.
She has released on BLACK TIGER SEX MACHINE’s Kannibaleen Records, Boogie T’s Drama Club Recordings and Big Beat Records. VAMPA recently toured North America on a 50+ stop bus tour with Boogie T and is preparing to grab festival season by the fangs.
ZÍA – LEX KATS
Hailing from The City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia’s expansive music scene brought ZíA to where she is now.
Born into a Russian family with a passion for classic rock, blues, and jazz albums, ZíA was often found singing along and digging for her own sounds. Punk, Alternative and Indie put ZíA’s ear to the ground and sparked her passion for music. A few years later she came across the likes of Bassnectar, Excision, and Skrillex, which inspired her to dig deeper into the “bass” community. Skream, Benga, Caspa, Rusko, Joker, Liquid Stranger, Zeds Dead and Ganja White Night soon became household names and, what she did not realize at the time, inspirations.
Known as “tour mom”, working the other side of the industry left her standing in the wings. Craving the rush of being behind the decks herself, she knew the time is now. With female DJ’s breaking boundaries everyday she jumped in feet first and hasn’t looked back.
Playing small and large venues in Philly opened the door to Camp Bisco and an exciting Fall 2018 touring schedule. ZíA’s ultimate goal is to resonate with her fans and move them on the same level music has shaped her.
