As inspired by house and techno as she is by the likes of classic Missy and Timbaland, Heroicgenius (real name Tranée Pope) is making really compelling music. She recently sent me her debut song, “Humans”, and I’m hooked. Near-operatic vocals over tight M1 organs and modern house shuffle, the song is catchy as fuck without ever veering into the saccharine. Though it’s her first proper release, Pope clearly has the chops of a seasoned producer. Without doubt one to watch.
Out now for streaming, or on bandcamp.
