Tei Shi (aka Valerie Teicher) is a Brooklyn-based musician making self-professed mermaid music. deepspace‘s remix of Sickasfuck is way too racy to play on CFMU, but I like its dense beat and layered, looped vocals and the fact that the unsteady beat turns it into glitchy Dirty Projectors kin. Her stage name comes from a riff off Jay-Z’s alterego, but suits her quite well – mysterious and chopped. Sickasfuck comes off her 2013 EP Saudade (stream & download on Soundcloud here). I love Nevermind The End and Nature vs Nurture.
