MHYSA is a Queer Black Diva and underground popstar for the cyber resistance from Prince George’s County, Maryland. Her debut album, fantasii, was released through Halcyon Veil on July 21, 2017 to glowing reception, and a live audio-visual experience touring North America will soon follow. Of fantasii, MHYSA says: “This debut album is an epic poem, like a reverse Dante’s Inferno, where I take the listener higher, upward through my hopes, dreams, inspirations, and desires. It represents my love for Black women and femmes, as the stories are all told from our perspectives.” Her debut EP, Hivemind, was released in February of 2016. In addition to her own productions, MHYSA’s experimental approach to dance music and RnB shines through in her highly sought-after THOT FANTASY mix series. THOT FANTASY mixes have been commissioned for luminary platforms like DIS Magazine and GHE20G0TH1K, highlighting MHYSA’s deep connections to the queer art, music and fashion scene of NY. In winter of 2016, she was listed in Artforum’s “Best of 2016: Music” and in February of 2017, she shared the stage with Yves Tumor, GAIKA, James Ferraro and Bill Kouligas in New York.

PRESS:

“This album is completely nuts and brilliant – Mhysa is in possession of a totally compelling voice and production style, feeding into a sound that’s prone to intuitively explore and reassert the limits of what we know as R&B, electronica or modern soul in 2017.” • Boomkat reviews “fantasii”
