Following local viral hit "Yank Riddim" in an era where young listeners prefer to consume music numb, 23-year-old Connecticut performance artist and music producer Snow
LaFlurr aims to revive the feeling with her new release, “Freak Like Me.”
"Freak Like Me" follows her biggest viral success to date, “Yank Riddim,” a triple tribute to her deceased friend Zoe, the dance he popularized (The Yank), and Busta Rhymes’s classic, “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See.”
ABOUT SNOW LAFLURR: Snow LaFlurr grew up in a Jamaican household in New Haven, Connecticut boasting a fruit punch of a childhood soundtrack –– credited to a father who was one of state's biggest DJs and the son of a former Bob Marley session musician. Big tunes, whether by a new Soca band or vintage Minnie Riperton, had an omnipresence in her home. Although raised by rhythm, lyricism was her initial calling. An eccentric child that often felt misunderstood, young LaFlurr would articulate her emotions to adults via poetry. Her inner record producer was awakened by her eldest brother (also a DJ), who introduced his little sister to pop acts like Spice Girls and NSYNC to 50 Cent and Dip Set.
Snow’s initial music discovery would stretch even farther, eventually falling her in love with the UK’s Drum & Bass and Garage genres. A true Aquarian, she was simultaneously an eclectic introvert and social magnet who out-danced all comers. Realizing her free spirit wasn’t suited for the confines of a DJ booth, the entrepreneur took an adjacent approach to the family biz. She grew a local name by throwing house parties that are currently considered throughout Connecticut both legendary and still in-demand.
With her flag planted in the uncharted soil of Connecticut, the drippy 23-year-old disrupted the Internet throughout summer ’18 with breakout hit "Yank Riddim". Followups include “Soft Drink” and “Flex Lon Don” paying homage to Missy Elliott, Timbaland and The Isley Brothers. And yet, these odes in succession are the rise of a new wave.
