What does it mean to identify as a challenge, as trouble? A self-described experimentalist, born in Nigeria, raised in Montreal, and now working in Vancouver. DEBBY FRIDAY is an anomaly. Her work spans the spectrum of the audio-visual, resisting categorizations of genre and artistic discipline. She is at once a sound theorist and musician, composer and performer, video artist, poet and PUNK GOD. Debby got her start as an international touring DJ known for her daring, idiosyncratic sets opening for the likes of Mykki Blanco and Princess Nokia.  In March 2018, she released her first self-produced EP, titled BITCHPUNK, to reverberating underground acclaim. She’s been featured in several publications including Thump, Loud & Quiet, Bandcamp and Le Canal Auditif and Mask Magazine, the latter of which describes the artist as, “intricately dexterous and dangerous… whose spiraling interconnections span oceanic speakers, and pan in and out of Yoruba poetries, contemporary queer woman and non-binary-identified underground music communities, and various generations challenging the order of things, [her] against-ness as a propulsion for creation.” Friday’s multi-disciplinary practice explores themes of ritual and feminine aggression as well as discourses of power, forces of diaspora and the aesthetics of eroticism. Her second release, also self-engineered and produced, is due in 2019 and features NON’s own Chino Amobi and Deathbomb Arc’s Lana Del Rabies. Debby describes it as, “hot noise: full of grief and full of relief. It is the painful and pleasurable next step, the sacrificial offering of my old life to the new.”
