Former Northern State MC Hesta Prynn will release her second EP, We Could Fall In Love. The title track and video is a mash-up of NYC hip hop and LA dance musictwo genres you could say Hesta's a product of.
Hesta Prynn is a maverick in the classic New York sense of the word. Walking the line between delicately feminine and totally hardcore, the former Northern State MC and new Paper Magazine columnist remains an artist with a chic sense of style and a visionary take on all things outside the norm.
This is the girl who Questlove called his melody, who hit Scores late night with Cypress Hill, made a record with a Beastie Boy and learned to order fast food on the road from Pete Rock. You have a favorite song on the radio right now? Odds are shes the ghostwriter.
A longtime lover of vinyl, the list of DJs and producers who have remixed Hesta Prynns successful string of releases is lengthy and awesome. Her song Turn It Gold, was featured in a Samsung commercial in Super Bowl XLVII. Of her sonic mixology she says Im a child of the 90s. I love hip-hop. I love pop music. Its the DJs responsibility to bring the party and Im always the one to turn it out.
The press hasnt slept on her either, shes been covered by NY Times, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Vanity Fair and Page Six to name a few. Her envelope pushing music videos are everywhere from MTV to tech-art blog Boing Boing to Teen Vogue.
As a performer, Hesta Prynn has played internationally with artists spanning from Jay-Z to Vampire Weekend to DJ SBTRKT. As a television personality she can be seen hosting music shows for the Logo Channel and Google, and DJing in national television commercials for Coke and Metro PCS as well as walking in NY Fashion Week.
