Moor Mother





Weekend Warrior, October 27 - 29

We know. What to do? What to do…this Halloween weekend? We love the all hallow-est of eves! And Philly does not have a shortage of diverse things to do. If you find the idea of swanky surroundings with the echo of groove-oriented experimental beats flowing through your ears and tarot card readings blowing your mind, Final Friday’s AfroFuturist Affair Costume Ball at the Philadelphia Art Museum this evening with locals Moor Mother, Sammus, and Fholston Paradigm is a no-brainer. And since things will be wrapping up relatively early, you still have plenty of time to catch Dark Thoughts at the LAVA Space benefit. On Saturday, the 8th annual TJ Kong Halloween Murdershow will be doing debaucherous things in the below ground lair of Underground Arts. The familiar faces of Levee Drivers and Tutlie will be joined by sexified newcomers OOLALA and Shy Boyz. And if you don’t really feel like leaving the Fishtown/Kensington/NoLibs area, tomorrow will be a nice evening to take a buzzed walk to your favorite neighborhood DIY space Everybody Hits for Hurry’s 2nd Annual Halloween Spooktacular, with pals Shannen Moser, Cave People, and Anomie. All proceeds will go to The Humane League of Philadelphia. For those who really haven’t had enough this Halloween weekend, you might need to chill out at Union Transfer, where Petal will be performing a solo set, opening for the always captivating Julien Baker and Half Waif. Wherever you find yourself, enjoy that you are there - cheers! – Alexis V.

Weekend Warrior, June 16 - 18

Corresponding with today’s release of their new EP Crime Waves (Don Giovanni), creative collaborators Moor Mother and Mental Jewelry are tabbed to perform at their release show this evening at Trash House. Slowed-down, trance-inducing, grim and grimy beats cultivate a sonic canvas on which Camae Ayewa lyrically paints. An unwavering, impassioned perseverance permeates as the music continues a timeline of commentary, extending in both directions. Smacking with sincerity, this collection of songs retains a raw refinement that’s penetratingly powerful. Tonight’s show, presented by All Mutable, also features the minimalist noise/hip hop of Manikineter, a.k.a. Carl Kavorkian, the discovery-oriented, space-age, electro beats of Madam Data and the continuously-morphing, bass-forward beats of Kilamanzego. - Michael Colavita

New Track: "Hardware" - Moor Mother x Mental Jewelry

In collaboration alongside local producer Mental Jewelry, Moor Mother will release a new EP Crime Waves via Don Giovanni Records on June 16. Utilizing an entrenching, bass-blasting beat, “Hardware” is a grimy tale of perseverance in spite of saddening violence. It’s a heavy sobering commentary. Moor Mother will also be appearing this evening at The Rotunda. 





New Music Video: "Parallel Nightmares" - Moor Mother

Camae Ayewa, a.k.a. Moor Mother, takes to the woods in her latest lyric video for "Parallel Nightmares," with co-director Bob Sweeney. Found on 2016's Fetish Bones (Don Giovanni Records), the track comingles with the shaky, blurry, black & white footage in ominous fashion that feels more frightening than a hike with the folks of Blair Witch Project or doctored video sightings of Slender Man. It's a match made in your deepest, darkest fears. Moor Mother is set to kickoff her European tour tomorrow at the World Minimal Music Festival in Amsterdam. (Photo by Bob Sweeney)





The Deli's Best Emerging Philly Hip Hop/Funk/Electronica Artist: Moor Mother!

We just completed our final poll for the categories of Hip Hop/Funk/Electronica. After compiling the jurors', readers'/fans' and writers' votes, congrats go out to Moor Mother, a.k.a. Camae Ayewa! We first encountered the experimental musician/poet/curator/activist as Camae Defstar, co-fronting politically charged punk/hip-hop outfit The Mighty Paradocs. She later began producing and releasing her own solo material as Moor Mother Goddess, before dropping last year's critically acclaimed Fetish Bones (Don Giovanni) under her revised, current moniker. The hometown renaissance woman has been grinding away for years in the Philadelphia music scene, refining her artistic vision, while being a supportive force in the local music community, so we are very happy to see her gaining recognition and continuing to do so on her own terms - bravo!

We'd also like to send out some love to our most recent Readers'/Fans' Poll Winners, Wax Future, who also finished second overall in the Hip Hop/Funk/Electronica category. And coming in third, Hardwork Movement have proven in 2016 that their band name is more than just a name; it's their ethos. We'll be sharing our final results for this year's Best Emerging Philly Artists Poll with our list of Top Performers, so remember to check back tomorrow!
