(Late pass on this, I know) Thunderhiest, the Toronto/Montreal duo of rapper Isis and producer Grahm Zilla, have been making waves in the hipster scene lately, with their wired up electro/rap combination. The duo got their start when Isis went to to Montreal to make a hip-hop album, but what resulted is a mish-mash of electro, hip-hop and whatever they throw into the pot. If you’ve been knee deep in the blogosphere you might have already heard their song Jerk It, which has been making the rounds. However, my favorite song that I’ve heard so far is this DFA Demo Mix, which demonstrates that Isis definitely has some lyrical swagger. I’ve heard that their parties are off the chain, and I can’t wait to check them out at SXSW.

    No doubt, Isis got lyrics. I’m not a big fan of the Thunderheist shit but props to her. She actually got her start as a spoken word artists then moved on to rap before doing this style of music
