Suzi Analogue is a rarity within modern-day electronic music: a prolific black woman singer, songwriter, beatmaker and creator of Never Normal Records who draws from house, footwork, rap, reggae & film to make conceptual music that amplifies her special personal stories.
True to her name, Suzi releases much of her music on formats like tape & vinyl on Never Normal Records, which have found success from the Billboard charts to BBC Radio playlists & places like Boiler Room to New York Fashion Week shows, like the widely-celebrated designer CHROMAT S/S18 ‘Serenity’ collection for which Suzi composed the live score.
Originally, born in Baltimore, MD, she has resided in numerous cities including Philadelphia, Tokyo, New York, & Miami . She’s traveled to Uganda, the Netherlands & more cities to perform & lead music production courses. Cities influence Suzi’s global & inclusive style – fusing soul, hip-hop and vocals with synthesizers and electronic bass instruments into new worlds.
Born Maya Shipman, she dubbed herself Suzi Analogue in tribute to RZA’s moniker Bobby Digital. Analogue debuted publicly in 2009 as part of the Klipmode collective along fellow experimental hip-hop producers Knxwledge, Devonwho, and Mndsgn. Suzi’s global music collaborations continued as the world tuned into her tracks like Onra -“Vibe With U” down to her 7″ debut “NNXT” ft “The Program” with Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins. She has innovative recordings with DJ Earl, TOKiMONSTA, King Britt & more.
