Bonnie Li is the latest signing on Swedish label Icons Creating Evil Art! Berlin-based Parisiennes Bonnie Li and Elia M. (founder of the techno label Sycomor) just unveiled their latest cut called ‘Mallory’ – an intense and dark electronic trip-hop piece. The single includes a remix on the b-side made by label colleagues Emmecosta.
Having lived in Hong Kong, San Francisco, Montreal, Paris and now Berlin, Bonnie Li has experienced different cultures, beliefs and philosophies. Especially growing up in China has left a strong imprint on her regarding the status of women in our contemporary societies – that’s an important topic you can find in all of her compositions. Check out ‘Mallory’ below with the Emmecosta remix on the b-side:
“It is about a ‘then forsaken by existence’ girl I’d met in a creepy bar in Paris. She came in, sat down next to me and we had a drink together. We then walked all night long across the city as she was telling me about her life. Once an accomplished ice-skater then turned stripper she was alone, fragile and continuously taken advantage of for being gullible, trusting the wrong ‘friends’ and consequently making one wrong choice after another. I knew instantly we’d met for a reason. We became very close friends through thick and thin, and I’m happy to say she’s managed to turn her life around.” – Bonnie Li about Mallory
