“Clouds of black smoke and a fascination for the macabre, weird and wonderful construct the skin for this thrillingly dark debut. Kay’s inherent electronic technique and nostalgia collectively write one of the most of cohesive and engaging debut albums of this decade.” – Maxie Molotov-Smith (FORTITUDE Magazine)
With a love for creating and looping electronic beats, bass, synths and vocal chops, Georgi Kay is a 25 year old British-Australian artist based in LA who has received multiple awards for her original work, songwriting and collaborations over the years.
She has won both an ARIA Award, multiple APRA Awards and received a Grammy nomination for her song ‘In My Mind’, the 2012 dance anthem collaboration with Aussie DJs Feenixpawl and Ivan Gough, and Axwell from Swedish House Mafia. The latest 2018 remix by Lithuanian DJ Dynoro skyrocketed the classic dance hit to over half a billion streams and downloads, reaching #1 on Spotify, Apple Music and Shazam in over 12 markets, along with sitting in the Spotify Top 50 in over 40 countries.
Georgi’s voice has featured in numerous DJ sets worldwide by some of music’s biggest names and she has collaborated with international EDM/dance artists including Tiesto, Kaskade, Lipless, Matt Nash, Faruk Sabanci and many more. Along with EDM collaborations, Georgi has also acted in and written for several films and TV series (Jane Campion’s Golden Globe & Emmy Award winning Top Of The Lake, Alex Garcia’s Residue, JD Dillard’s Sleight & upcoming feature film Sweetheart), often offering her voice and original songs as main titles or featured throughout.
After releasing multiple singles, EPs and dance collaborations, Georgi released her debut album Where I Go To Disappear on November 2nd, 2018 on her self-made independent label, Monoki Records. Gathering inspiration from old sci-fi and horror films, elements of deep house, 80’s inspired synths and a love for the weird and the macabre – audiences around the world have been seduced by Georgi’s hypnotic and energetic live shows, her brooding, husky vocal tones and her honest, symbolic and often ambiguous songwriting – always leaving them wanting more.
