Candy Coated Killahz


At the intersection of glitch, electro-rap, and pop, live the Candy Coated Killahz. The Toronto duo is the brainchild of Producer/Frontgirl Tasha Schumann and Frontman Icon the Anomali, who bang out heavy-hitters, combining gritty rhymes and forceful hooks. Having been compared to acts such as MIA, Robyn, Gwen Stefani, and Outkast, the CCK sound exists at the frontier of urban electro-pop.

At the intersection of glitch, electro-rap, and pop, live the Candy Coated Killahz. The Toronto duo is the brainchild of Producer/Frontgirl Tasha Schumann and Frontman Icon the Anomali, who bang out heavy-hitters, combining gritty rhymes and forceful hooks. Having been compared to acts such as MIA, Robyn, Gwen Stefani, and Outkast, the CCK sound exists at the frontier of urban electro-pop. Now, just a few months away from the release of “Neon Black”, their newest and most adventurous work to date, Candy Coated Killahz have an exciting year ahead. The lead single and title track (also called "Neon Black") is set for release in February 2011.

Paired with a breakthrough video by director Alon Isocianu, the track explores the darker, glitchier, and most epic regions of pop music. The duo teamed up with their DJ and frequent collaborator, Danthrax to produce the track. The album also features collaborations with Sean Desman, Marc Costanzo of Len, Tino Zolfo, and Swedish producer Marten Tromm. CCK’s live shows are notoriously sweaty, late-night riots. (At one of the group's 3am warehouse shows, a crowd of 400 dancing fans were ushered out by a parade of police who seized the group's gear on noise complaints.) Since the inception of Candy Coated Killahz in 2007, the group has shared the stage with heavy hitters like The Roots, The Gza (of WuTang Clan), Pitbull, The Cool Kids, and performed at major events such as VirginFest, Canadian Music Week, Toronto International Film Festival, North by Northeast, Under Pressure World Graffiti Festival, and more. Instrumentally, Tasha is the whiz-kid behind the Candy Coated Killahz sound.

Also a classically trained pianist, Tasha is one of the industry’s few female producers, while Icon the Anomali, brings his genre-bending vocals and eclectic dance style to the duo. Also a talented visual artist, animator and game designer, Icon will be overseeing the design of the band’s iPhone game to be released in 2011. CCK first came into national visibility with their debut single, Playboy, which initially appeared on their "It Factor" album (released on the band's own label, HotSteam Record). A nation-wide hit, Playboy has appeared in Tyler Perry's blockbuster film, "I Can Do Bad All By Myself" and in several North American television series.
