A couple months back, we headed out to Black Market Soho, a lovely independent record store smack bang in the centre of Soho (Sort of a give away in the name there). With vinyl making such a strong comeback within the market & Record Store Day just gone, there was no better place to catch a glimpse of the technicolor Israeli that’s making her mark overseas. Combining a varied mixture of so many genres that it would be near impossible to list them all, we sat back to see Adi Ulmansky unleash a brilliant live DJ set as well as tracks ‘My Heart‘ and previously unheard track ‘Hurricane Girl‘, taken from her upcoming release ‘Hurricane Girl EP‘. Her latest installment is a 6-track powerhouse that traverses Ulmansky‘s wildly eclectic style. From it’s Arabic-infused beats and trap-strong synth to vicious verses and pop hooks, this is a release that proves the Israeli to be a force of nature.
We had a little sit down with the singer/rapper/producer/human to have a chat about exactly what it is that makes her so different to the competition, her musical inspirations and the Israeli music scene. In short: the video below is essentially an amalgamation of our day with the lady. What’s not to love?
‘Hurricane Girl EP‘ will be released 29th July
