FIONA SOE PAING
Hot Gem Music’s latest output comes from the multi talented producer/vocalist Fiona Soe Paing. She signed to the label at the turn of the year, but had been on the radar for a good while. Her hybrid live music/cinema project which includes stunning projected animation from collaborator Zennor Alexander has recently caught the attention of critics. So much so that she’s been asked to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, as part of Creative Scotland’s Made in Scotland showcase. Musically she has been producing since 2004, and with her sounds taking influences from her Burmese/Scottish roots, her magic crosses over on all sorts of genres.
Fiona’s upcoming release Heartbeat is an experimental journey, with some slowed down Santi Gold style vocals cleverly match with some XXesque drum patterns and a twisting hypnotic edge. The sexed up, spooked out vocal selection grabs you into a creepy fixation moment, where you find yourself searching for a lifeline in anticipation of the break. This is a dreamlike musical arrangement, which is equally as unsettling and incredibly seductive throughout.
