ABOUT ASHNIKKO:

London-based, American-born rapper and singer Ashnikko makes genre-bending hip-hop and electronic pop, marked by her hyper-stylized, anime- and video game-influenced persona. Following two initial EPs, she gained widespread viral buzz with her song “Stupid,” featuring Yung Baby Tate, off 2019’s Hi It’s Me. Born Ashton Nicole Casey in 1996 in Oak Ridge, North Carolina, Ashnikko grew up in Greensboro. She discovered rap around age 11, listening to M.I.A. In her teens she lived in both Estonia and Latvia, where her father was working. It was during this period that she began making her own music, influenced by artists like Nicki Minaj, Björk, and other artists. In 2017, she released a digital EP, the Raf Riley-produced Sass Pancakes, which included the track “Krokodil.” A second EP, Unlikeable, followed in 2018 and included the song “No Brainer.” In 2019, Ashnikko returned with the five-track EP Hi It’s Me, which featured the song “Stupid” with Yung Baby Tate. The track and video went viral on several platforms, helping it reach number one on both the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart and Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop chart. That same year, she toured with Danny Brown. “Cry,” a collaboration with Grimes, arrived in June 2020.

In 2021, DEMIDEVIL, was the biggest and boldest Ashnikko release yet, defying any attempts to pigeonhole the blue-haired maverick. The demidevil, she says, is “two people  and I can be five different people. I can be very multifaceted.” Throughout the mixtape, she’s bratty, sexy, angry, and heartbroken, over everything from trap beats to rock choruses. Most importantly, she’s a songwriter with talents that will carry her far beyond a viral moment of fame. Her personal idea of success isn’t about online likes and comments it’s about the people who will fill the room once music venues are up and running again. “As long as they know all the lyrics by heart,” she says, “then I’ll know I’ve succeeded.”
