Tammy Lakkis is the daughter of Lebanese immigrants. She grew up in Windsor, Ontario and Dearborn Heights, Michigan and is now based in Hamtramck. She is a singer, songwriter, producer, and DJ. Lakkis is also known for her all-hardware sets and singing bilingually in both English and Arabic.
I first heard of her last summer when she did a live show on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM with Shigeto. The show was very eclectic and filled with great gems. Ever since that show, I follow Tammy Lakkis on Instagram.
The other day, I saw one of her posts on IG that caught my attention. It was a cool looking video teasing her new release Notice. As I am getting more involved in making videos at work, I try to stay in the loop of what is being made.
Released on Portage Garage Sounds, Notice is her first vinyl release and consists of 4 tracks exploring dance music. As it is a pre-order, we can only preview 2 out of the 4 tracks. The opening track Hello?? is a percussive banger. The closing track Notice is a less aggressive track and more of a house ballad with beautiful vocals by Lakkis.
Have a sound day.
