Having only released a handful of EPs, and more recently, their debut album Fantast, Toronto duo TUSH (Kamilah Apong, Jamie Kidd) has gained attention around the world. With nods and collaborations with electronic dance music mavens like Jazzanova, Matthew Herbert, Osunlade, TUSH is building a name due to their authentic approach to dance music.  More grit than glam, their sound embodies the rawness, vulnerability, and intimacy of the dancefloor.

The two musicians met through playing live rare groove disco covers in Toronto nightclubs, and quickly turned to producing their own music. Pulling from genres of 90s house, disco, psychedelic, post-punk and soul, Tush creates a sound all their own. Their debut EP charted at #3 in electronic music across national campus radio, with press credits including The FADER, Stereofox, and DJ Mag.

Tush strives to honour the various icons and women-led, queer, and Black communities that planted the communal seeds of dance music. This ethos extends to their external roles in their local Toronto scenes as music educators and community organizers for youth and music lovers alike for over a decade, founding grassroots youth arts platform LIL SIS (Apong) and international music event crew Box of Kittens (Kidd) respectively.

Their visceral live set has captured hearts and minds on some of the best festival stages such as Pride Toronto, Toronto International Film Festival, and Toronto Jazz Festival. 2020 would see them booked alongside Little Dragon, Derrick Carter - until the pandemic de-railed their plans. Instead, Tush took this time to redirect their focus to finishing their debut album, FANTAST, out on Toronto label DO RIGHT! Music on July 30th, 2021.

Described as “setting the tone” for “artists to watch” (NOW Toronto), and as “creating some of the most inventive dance music coming out of Canada” (Biff Bam Pop), TUSH continues to push the boundaries on how dance music is created, heard, and experienced.
