Biography

At the intersection of glitch, electro, and rap, live CCK (Candy Coated Killahz). The group is the brainchild of Producer/Frontgirl Tasha Schumann, Frontman Icon the Anomali, and DJ Danthrax. Having been compared to acts such as MIA, Robyn, and Outkast, the CCK sound exists at the frontier of urban-electronic.

CCK's live shows are notoriously sweaty, late-night riots. (At one of the group's 3am warehouse shows, a crowd of 400 dancing fans were ushered out by a parade of police who seized the group's gear on noise complaints.) Since the inception of Candy Coated Killahz in 2007, the group has shared the stage with heavy hitters like The Roots, The Gza, The Cool Kids, T-Pain, and Hip hop legend Fab 5 Freddy among others, while their most recent single, Neon Black, has been remixed by DJ Green Lantern, Che Vicious (Dr. Dre, The Game, Wiz Khalifa), Bonjay and more.

Instrumentally, Tasha is the whiz-kid behind the Candy Coated Killahz sound. The Jamaican-German producer is also a classically trained pianist. Nigerian-born Icon the Anomali, lends his genre-bending vocals and eclectic dance style to the duo. Also a talented visual artist Icon is currently writing and illustrating the band's comic book, a dark sci-fi called "Human Connection". Toronto hip hop and electro veteran, Danthrax, DJs live and collaborates in writing/producing.

Fresh off the release of Neon Black (their sophmore album) CCK is currently touring and writing/producing the upcoming mixtape, for fall 2011.
