WHHW: SoundSIStem is the second volume in a series that began with the January 2013 release of World Hip Hop Women: From The Sound Up.
WHHW: From The Sound Up garnered significant critical acclaim and press coverage, including a review from the UK’s The Guardian. The World Hip Hop Women Mixtape Series is a celebration of the feminine contribution to hip hop culture.
The vibe of WHHW: SoundSIStem is especially elevated, and will get you up out of your seat! It opens with reggae/ dancehall inspired tracks out of Canada, Mexico, South America, notably “Phenomenal” by Maya Jupiter (Australian native currently living in the USA), produced by herself and Aloe Blacc. We give you heavy hitting bars from Detroit next to a high energy anthem track from Tanzania to lyrical heat from Lely of Cuba produced by Nomadic Wax’ own DJ Nio. Sexy sounds from Chile’s Moyenei grace the same space as StaHHr’s classic hip hop swagger, and Devour Ke Lenora raps on how she is elevating the game in South Africa.
This volume of the WHHW series is hosted by internationally celebrated poet and owner of Moore Black Press, Jessica Care Moore. Jessica is an internationally renowned poet, publisher, activist, rock star, playwright and actor. She is a fivetime Showtime at the Apollo winner, has featured on hiphop megastar, Nas’ Nastradamus album, was a recurring star of Russell Simmons’ HBO Series Def Poetry Jam and is the founder of Black Women Rock, an organization that supports the music and artistry of Black women. World Hip Hop Women not only embody Hip Hop culture as emcees they are also integral and evolutionary members of their communities who continue to fulfill many essential societal roles, many times carving a path where there was none. They are sociopolitical activists, journalists, fashion designers, cultural ambassadors, educators, bgirls, wives and mothers.
World Hip Hop Women Mixtape Series is mixed and directed by Dj LaJedi of Detroit, MI, USA. Her vision for the project is that it not only engage music lovers across the planet in an elevated awareness of global music, but also establish beneficial relationships and cultural exchange between hip hop women worldwide. She recorded the mix as a live set in her home studio in Detroit, MI, using two Technic 1200s and a Rane 57sl mixer.
