Tasha Blank is a kinetic force of glee and fury. An international dj + dance floor instigator since 2010, she’s the founder of NYC’s longest running and wildest dance party The Get Down and creator of the viral video manifesto We Came To Dance. Known for ferocious live performances that sweep crowds into their rawest, sweatiest expression with banging beats + playful permission, Tasha's first release The Light invites listeners on a hypnotizing ride into even deeper, juicier territory.

After 20 years actively avoiding the creation of original music, this record is the thing that woulda killed Tasha if she'd kept it inside. The Light is the gates unlocked. It hits with layers of vocals and soaring bass, drones that draw you into the silence behind your eyes and beats that sync with the pulse of blood runnin your lungs. It's afterhours + early triphop with the live echoes of a concert hall. It’s the sun setting on a banging dance floor. It’s a bouncy menagerie of percussion and distortion, interplays of silky guitars, rough edges and bent harmonies. It is also danceable, chillable, and extremely f*ckable.
