Eva Shaw Collabs with Thouxanbanfauni for “Home Invasion”
Eva Shaw has been around the dance music scene for a while as a producer, songwriter, and DJ. She has performed at Ultra, had a residency at Hakkasan Las Vegas, and run the whole festival circuit. She has had releases on Spinnin, Sink, Wall, and she has worked with Poo Bear, Showtek, and many others. She has even collaborated with G-Star for her own clothing line.
Recently, Eva has been working with an amazing group of hip-hop artists like Thouxanbanfauni, and the first single they are releasing together “Home Invasion” drops today.
Fauni is coming off of a year of great releases including FCS2 with UnoTheActivist and his Seein Colors EP. His work with Eva is unexpected, very exciting, and sure to yield some amazing music.
Toronto native Eva Shaw is not only a music producer, songwriter, and DJ, but she is also directing and producing music videos and even designed her own clothing line with G Star Raw. Eva began writing and making beats as a teenager in Toronto, Canada. She started to teach herself how to DJ, but her career didn't get started until she made the move to New York City for school. Eva DJed as a hobby, but this quickly turned into a full-time job. Eva performed on the mainstage at music festivals such as Ultra, as well as landing residencies in premier nightclubs such as Hakkasan Las Vegas. Eva's first single release "Charizma" was signed by Calvin Harris to his own label Fly Eye.
Growing up in Toronto around a father who was a jazz musician, Eva was always surrounded by a wide range of cultural influences. She experimented with different styles and genres and ended up producing her first major-label release feat Poo Bear. The song 'Rise N Shine' has gained streaming success along with airplay on major radio stations in NYC and Canada.
With Eva focusing her original music toward vocal-based songs, the mainstream market took note. Eva was asked by label Def Jam to remix their top artists. With remixes for Rihanna, Ludacris & Fifth Harmony going strong, Eva continues to get the nod from successful artists looking for her spin on their original tunes. Eva loves to experiment with sounds and genres and sees herself as continuing to grow and create her story through music.
Thouxanbanfauni was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee but moved to Atlanta for high school where he became involved in the same hip-hop scene that birthed many of today's stars. His single "Who You Testin?" became a hit on Soundcloud helping bring him to the current spotlight. After that, he dropped his first solo mixtape Heavy Weight Champ that established him as a creative force to be reckoned with. Fauni is a pioneer in breaking the barrier between underground hip-hop and the mainstream. He was a top contender for the 2017 XXL Freshman list and has been the talk of many blogs and forums for the last few years. He has been impressively growing his fan base without the support of a major label.
Thouxanbanfauni is the ideal mix of veteran Soundcloud rapper and new wave Atlanta rap star. Fauni is absolutely a Soundcloud OG with songs like "Rihanna's Wrist" that have over a million views, but he also came to be in the same Atlanta scene as Migos and UnoTheActivist. Thouxan's music bridges the underground with the mainstream, and as a result and the sound he creates is always ahead of the curve.
