International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

" Throughout Obuxum’s catalogue of tightly coiled percussive beats, nestled in between experimental electronic and hip hop spheres, her catalogue amplifies and resonates the voices of the Black, Brown and Indigenous women—who she says have inspired her to “endlessly remain courageous, daring and bold.”

As a youth worker at a community centre, Mohamed describes learning her craft as a happy accident, after signing up for a sampling course that taught her to pull from her own expansive musical knowledge to form something unique. Inspired by Flying Lotus, she began mixing field recordings and drum patterns into Reason and Ableton, creating huge, spacious sounds spanning otherworldly synth squiggles to trap-influenced opera, many of which come in at under an urgent and immediate two-minute timespan. In addition to serving as co-founder of Toronto’s Off The Scene Collective, Obuxum’s rising star has taken her to Wavelength Festival, Electric Eclectics, and Scarborough’s Luminous Fest, which showcases Black Muslim artists. Recent collaboration tape Love Conversation Vol.1 partnered her alongside real-life partner Furozh with a series of back and forth musical love letters created with an almost rapper-battle edge.

Obuxum takes the stage at MUTEK for a densely packed set of original productions, weaving narratives from chopped and re-contextualized vocal samples floating over her uncompromisingly singular sound. "

A trip to Haiti was the impulse for Mohamed to incorporate Haitian drumming techniques into her work, which you can hear on tracks like “Lakou Bajo.”
