Dateline: Toronto, Ontario, Canada, May 13, 2013 - Abstract Random is not about ambiguity or uncertainty, as their name might imply. In fact, they're quite focused in their delivery of funky, hypnotic beats and lyrics that cut to the heart of issues that are important to them. Whether they're rapping or singing about gender identity, homophobia or politics on a local or global scale, the group does not shy away from their principles. They are as upfront and as driven as Sun Sun's beats.

Formed in 2009 by Jamilah Malika, (vocals, Korg) and Sun Sun, aka F. Nocera (producer, vocals, visuals), Ayo Leilani (vocals, loop pedal) joined as a permanent member in 2011. Abstract Random is a part of the 88 Days of Fortune collective in Toronto. This grass roots organization provides platforms and resources for a variety of groups who create art and music around the Toronto area. Working within a supportive community like 88 Days of Fortune, provides Abstract Random the opportunity to develop their unique blend of rap, electro, dub and hip hop, as well as the stage show that supports it. These three Canadian women combine their talents to create a musical collage of beats, samples and lyrics. They mix that with poetry, costumes, face paint, lights and visual effects, thereby creating the Abstract Random experience. They want to free your mind and your feet. The group is influenced musically by Frank Ocean, MIA, Burning Spear, as well as Shabazz Palaces and THEESatisfaction, who they've shared the stage with. Personal politics, relationships, homophobia, justice and feminism also influence and inform their lyrics. They take the in-your-face politics of Rage Against the Machine, remove the abrasive guitar, but keep the rhythm intact. Like MIA, they use understated but catchy-as-hell hooks to give listeners a dose they might not realize they're getting until it hits them.

The group's last North American show will be Friday, May 24 at Le Cagibi in Montreal, before the European tour with Ayo Leilani's new experiential Hip-Hop Soul project, Witch Prophet begins. Dates include: Friday, May 31, at the Schokaladen in Mitte, Berlin Germany in association with Riot Grrrl Berlin; Saturday, June 1st at the Alhambra in Oldenburg, Germany. Tuesday, June 4th, London, UK, TBA; Wednesday, June 5th, at the The White Lion in London, UK; Thursday, June 6th at the ZeroZero Bar in Paris, France. Saturday, June 8th with local musicians Bonnie Banane and Walter Mecca at the Le Petit Bain also in Paris.

Once they get back to the Western Hemisphere, they'll continue to expand their reach and play in front of new and diverse audiences, which will include a performance at NXNE on June 13th at May in Toronto, Canada. They take the stage at 1:00am. They plan to incorporate even more theatrics into their already theatrical events and put on shows that tell stories through visuals and music. They hope to continue building bridges to connect with people through their art.
