Originally from Korea, 20-year-old Sarah Lee, who goes by the stage name Ishii, developed a love for performance art and anime, and quickly gained underground attention to her DJ shows throughout the Midwest. Her family descends from a line of Korean traditional costume designers that heavily influenced her signature doll-like hybrid of electro-crush dance music and melodies from the Far East. Armed with a sound and aesthetic that is equal parts ethereal, as it is ready for the catwalk, the world is Ishii stage. Last year began a fruitful collaboration with English DJ/Producer team Shok-n-Awe with heavily dance-laden grooves and melodic hooks, and an abandonment of conventional pop. Ishii will bring her mesmerizing mix of heart-pounding beats and esoteric vocals with a fresh new sound. Debut record, to be released summer of 2010.
