Not Mass: gFx with Calin & Hibiskiss
August 13, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Calin is a Pittsburgh based non binary and queer artist. Their sound is heavily influenced by the midwest and their peers in Pittsburgh. Coming up in the Pittsburgh scene has taught them diversity in sound and rhythm which they showcase through their playing. They have been heavily involved with MESH since it’s beginning but now recently has been taken on as a resident. Their deep roots of identity and community translates into their sound and expression!
Hibiskiss as in Hi•bis•kiss is from Pittsburgh pa. They also have grown roots in Woodbridge Va from the late 90s and early 2000s. Their love of music started with family first. Gospel, funk and hip hop is what they‘ve grown up to know. Living in the dmv area they encountered gogo and that changed everything because from there they were exposed to house and techno. Faith would say that their style has change some but their attitude towards music has ever so stayed unchanged. Rather if you catch them dancing at Hot Mass or hanging out with friends/family you’ll soon find that Faith centers community at the heart and with music along she becomes a vibratious exuberance.
