Video-Release: Jessiquoi – “The Addict”

Jessiquoi would be the first to tell you: all music is world music. All styles come from somewhere, and modern pop songs are juxtapositions of sounds that have developed in disparate cultures across the globe. But we’re pretty confident that there are few artists anywhere who are making cultural connections with the audacity and alacrity that Jessiquoi does. North American pop, East Asian folk, Teutonic electro, bhangra: it’s all there in her songs, and it all fits together seamlessly. A Jessiquoi track is a breakneck trip around the planet – and you’ll never know where she’s taking you next.
