DJ_Wr3TCh3D Probably one of my favorite recent discoveries. Female fronted electro-trip hop. I fucking love it. Listen to this track Drop and try to tell me you don't love it.. Favorite track: Drop.

Track Name: Dance & Ruse
the time has come
and before long
the waves will flow
with voice and song

and with the rising of the moon
man wakes machine, conjures a muse
woman emerges from her tomb
and so begins this dance and ruse

the time has come
we've waited long
for waves to flow
with voice and song

and with the rising of the moon
man wakes machine, conjures a muse
woman emerges from her tomb
and so begins this dance and ruse

move your feet (repeated)

and with the rising of the moon
man wakes machine, conjures a muse
woman emerges from her tomb
and so begins this dance and ruse
Track Name: Invader
pouring these hateful words onto innocent paper
is making me empty, but it makes me feel better
breathing the same air you breathe fills my lungs full of anger
and gathers all of the negative thoughts together

i hate that i'm aware of your existence
i wish that you could feel this everyday
the never-ending torment of a presence
only then might you finally go away

invader of my sanitary happiness
you are a stain, a green reminder of all ugliness
getting off on getting in and getting noticed
i'll suffocate your welcome until it is motionless
motionless

i hate that i'm aware of your existence
i wish that you could feel this everyday
the never-ending torment of a presence
only then might you finally go away
go away, go

i will not sleep until you leave

i hate that i'm aware of your existence
i wish that you could feel this everyday

i will not sleep until you leave
Track Name: King Noise
what gives you the right to claim a person
pluck them from their home and wash their brain?
you can't expect to take what's never offered
run your mouth and hide from rightful blame

i wanna stain
i wanna stain your face with it

i could sink down to your bullshit level
pound my chest, declare myself a king
but i don't drown out whispers of a weakness
your noise will be the downfall of your reign

and it's gonna stain
i wanna stain
i wanna stain your face with it
yes i'm gonna stain
i'm gonna stain your face with it

feel your failure creep
underneath all your lies
a truth is rising

to stain
i wanna stain
i wanna stain your face with it
fuck yes, i'm gonna stain
i'm gonna stain your face with it
so get running
Track Name: Branches
grind my teeth in sleep
my resting bones
all victims of the genes
handed down
a pattern that i keep
a sickness rooted deep
within my family tree

my branches sway in the wind of a safe mistake
it won't be long before they break
my branches sway, and i'm awake
it won't be long

signs are pointing me
to what i've always known
this cycle will repeat
forever on
until i plant a seed
and uproot the disease
within my family tree

my branches sway in the wind of a safe mistake
it won't be long before they break
my branches sway, and i'm awake
it won't be long

i owned it all through the rise and fall

my branches sway in the wind of a safe mistake
it won't be long before they break
my branches sway, and i'm awake
it won't be long
Track Name: Drop
enough
this is where it stops
i will do what i have to
you can rot
in your own delusions
i will no longer ask of you

the fate that sits before your eyes
should come as no surprise

drop from the face of the earth
i don't want to know you
drop from the face of the earth
there is nothing here for you

shut up
i don't give a fuck
about your new revelation
you are not
going to tear me up
for your own entertainment

i've washed myself of all your lies
this is your demise

drop from the face of the earth
i don't want to know you
drop from the face of the earth
there is nothing here for you

i know exactly who you are
i know exactly who you were
i know exactly who you're trying to be
and i don't fucking want it anymore

drop from the face of the earth
i don't want to know you
want you to drop from the face of the earth
there is nothing here for you
Track Name: Forlorn Fortress
you want to see behind the veil
discarded parts and all, revealed

no one gets in
they don't come out
breach my fortress
tear this veil down

will you discover what i hold?
release my prisoners and watch me fold?
[is this loss of control?]

no one gets in
they don't come out
breach my fortress
tear this veil down

[come on and coax the inside
come on and coax the inside out]

an empire before you
divided, dusk and dawn
one side would fight it
another wants the white flag flown

no one gets in
they don't come out
breach my fortress
tear this veil down
Track Name: Warm Cocoon
you will sink in silence
replay and analyze
you will search expressions
read between the lines

pick apart the innocent
find the hidden message

doomed

wage a war of passiveness
sever all connections

doomed is what you are
(what will it take)
doomed to a life apart
(to escape this fate)

you will feel the absence
swollen black insides
you will drop your weapons
surrender your disguise

hold fast to the only piece that fits
overstay your welcome

doomed is what you are
(what will it take)
doomed to a life apart
(to escape this fate)

back and forth you sway
between desire and reaction
allowing every subtle movement
to cast haunting shadows
with drawl, a warm cocoon of fire
will burn this all to ashes
until the craving for acceptance
sparks an interaction

doomed is what you are
(what will it take)
doomed to a life apart
(to escape this fate)
Track Name: Monochrome
when unforgiving light appears
wrap me in your atmosphere
ignite a dream engulfed in nightmare

home, monochrome
home, i wanna go home

follow me into the shadows
shed your innocence and fall
we will come together, dance amidst the thrill
candlelight across the walls
we'll be

home, monochrome
home, monochrome
home, i wanna go home
home, monochrome
Track Name: Rise Of The Queen
i'll creep in slow
slipping through the darkness
you won't know
just how close i've gotten
i'll play my game
you won't know what's coming
you'll trust my face
then i'll push your button

now listen close
meet my gaze
that's my weight upon your chest
that's my name under your breath

i'll clench your bones
fierce between my teeth
i'll feel my blood flow
like a volcano underneath
my guile, unearthed
a dream-like transformation
i'll watch you squirm
the payoff for my patience

listen close
meet my gaze
that's my weight upon your chest
that's my name under your breath

i've come to take what's mine
submit to my desire
i've wet my appetite
nothing can change my mind

listen close
meet my gaze
that's my weight upon your chest
that's my name under your breath
Track Name: Lustersuck
(you want this?)

pull your trigger
i'll play target
you can use me up
when you're starving
claim my table
eat and fill your cup

you wear my light like i am shining for you
consume my time like mine's expendable

lies, denial
your vices
your non-stop crisis
while the threads that bind
slowly come undone

push my limits
i'll go further
you can run me down
when you're lost
follow my path
exploit what I have found

you wear my light like i am shining for you
consume my time like mine's expendable

lies, denial
your vices
your non-stop crisis
while the threads that bind
slowly come undone

take, take, take, take, take, take
what more can you take?

you want this?
well, you can't have this.
it's mine.
