Femme Deadly Venoms

Greetings from Planet Femme.

Received messages that this planet is in a soul slumber/Awakening is happening but at too slow a number, rhymes Aima the Dreamer in the eponymous title track of Planet Femme, Femme Deadly Venoms’ latest EP. On Planet Femme, she and producer/singer Lady Fingaz adopt a sci-fi aesthetic to tell stories from the point of view of feminine aliens invading Earth in order to restore a balance of masculine and feminine energies. The project isn’t heavy-handed with this theme, however, and avoids the preachy qualities that some people find off-putting about conscious rap. Instead, it’s rife with cheeky rhymes about partying and seduction — with an emphasis on self-confidence and sexual consent. San Francisco rapper MicahTron, who has long been a fixture of The City’s queer scene, delivers an especially memorable, fired-up verse on the track “Hella Saucy.” While Lady Fingaz’ beats are rooted in old-school hip-hop song structures, she uses glitchy, electronic textures that reference house and drum and bass. Femme Deadly Venoms performs on Saturday, November 7 at VRC3, a showcase of female musical talent that Venus Rising Collective puts on at Legionnaire Saloon.
