From: Lexington, Ky.
Listen to: “Dynasty,” “Mickie”
Lexington, which is known for bluegrass, has to be one of the last places in the U.S. you’d expect to hear the future of electronic music, but Herring bucks the norm. She’s been bubbling on the underground, crafting electronic music that walks the line between deep grooves and left-field sensibilities, sometimes folding her vocals into the mix. In 2014, she came into her own, remixing denitia and sene’s “Side FX,” and her song “Mickie” made the first compilation from Ryan Hemsworth’s tastemaking Secret Songs imprint, helping put her music on a higher platform than ever before.
