about

Over the last three years, Tammy Lakkis spent her nights between the dance floor and the studio, developing her own unique sound – in celebration of, and in reaction to Detroit's underground.

The daughter of Lebanese immigrants, Lakkis grew up in Windsor, Ontario and Dearborn Heights, Michigan and is now based in Hamtramck. She is a versatile singer, songwriter, producer, and DJ; in live performance she is known for her all-hardware sets, singing bi-lingually in English and Arabic with a hauntingly beautiful, one-of-a-kind voice.

"Notice" is the first vinyl release from Tammy, a document of years writing, developing, and honing her craft, a time capsule to life before COVID. The "Notice" EP is four tracks across the spectrum of dance music, each track a unique color.

🦩🦈🏝

"Hello??"
An introductory wave. A percussion heavy slapper riding the fine line between dark and playful, like a dinosaur dancing with a sledge hammer breaking everything in sight. A menacing bass line makes your stomach drop while processed vocals prance on top of it asking the question "Hello??". Shimmering in stereo, filling your ears with color while creeping in to make you ask yourself "is anyone out there?"

"Wen Rayeh"
Upbeat, playful. Vengeful, sneaky. A snake. Contemporary diasporic Arabic electronic avant-pop. Fuses lyric structure of simple but metaphor-driven traditional Arabic songs with experimental electronic sounds with piercing, relentless percussion.

"Shark Island"
Hardware live take, big and bad bass. Playful, Cute, and evil. Sharks circling an island of flamingos. Cyclical.

"Notice"
A love song. Ballad. A series of moments, building; The song at the pinnacle moment in an unreleased John Hughes movie.  Inspired by Detroit's dance floors, a crossover hit you wish you heard when you were in your teens at a rave/high school dance. Seeing the sun for the first time in a while. Driving with the windows down. Love letter to shifting perspectives. Celebrating beauty in realization and change.

The song of the summer.
