Suwannee Hulaween 2019 Artist to Watch: Vampa
With the release of her newest EP titled Haunting, Emily Mucha aka Vampa is the perfect fit for this year’s Suwannee Hulaween artist to watch. The 22-year-old singer, songwriter, and producer has made quite the rise to fame in the electronic music scene over the past year. The Chicago native fell in love with dubstep in high school when she saw Zeds Dead at her first electronic music show. Little did she know, years later, that she would not only be given the opportunity to play at one of their most iconic shows but would also be releasing her own music on their Deadbeats record label.
In the past year, she has released several singles on multiple different record labels. This past winter she released her single “Chillin, Killlin” on Black Tiger Sex Machine’s Kannibalen Records. This track, like many of her other releases, features her own songwriting and vocals before leading into a jaw dropping dubstep drop. At the beginning of this year, she was announced as a support artist for Boogie T’s first live band tour, The Boogie T.our with 50+ stops around the country in less than 3 months. In March she released her single “Venom” on Boogie T’s Drama Club Records and a few weeks later she released “The Cave” through Big Beat Records. By the springtime, she was already playing and being booked on some of the biggest festival lineups of the year. She made appearances at Miami Music Week, played an Electric Forest Renegade set, and landed on the lineup for a number of festivals including Lost Lands, Big Dub, High Caliber, Moonrise, Wakaan Festival, and of course the 2019 Hulaween lineup. One of her biggest and most recent accomplishments has been playing as a support artist at Zeds Dead’s annual two-night Red Rocks take over, Deadrocks. After this appearance, she was signed to Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats label where she released her EP Haunting. The tracks on this Haunting EP also feature original vocals and singing from Vampa herself.
Vampa’s bio reads: “You should not turn in fear from darkness hidden within the mind. Life is a battle of polarities; it takes facing the darkness to truly know the light.” Keeping with her dark and ominous theme is her merch which is covered in designs of bats and her fan base which she correctly refers to as her #FangGang. Her love of spiders, bats, pentagrams, and wiccan practices make Vampa just the right match for Hulaween and the Spirit of Suwannee’s spooky Halloween vibe.
Be sure to catch Vampa’s set and all the other incredible acts on this year’s Suwannee Hulaween lineup.
