ICYMI Press Release


MissDefiant release their ICYMI Single featuring DOPEBOYLDN plus remixes through AWAL on January 27th 2017.

Rising electro pop duo MissDefiant have taken inspiration from their own personal relationship experiences with their new single “ICYMI” (In case you missed it). “We are the new business and you’re gonna wish you hadn’t missed it”, the girls deliver a narrative about lust, love and betrayal. DOPEBOYLDN adds a sharp urban edge to the song along with empowering lyrics.

ICYMI is the last release before their debut album in an ongoing collaboration between singer/songwriters Emily and Jordan and producer Mike Tournier, combining a perfect blend of electro and pop. DJ Escence and producer Humbringer have complimented the release with contrasting remixes which amplifies the release to the club-goer audience.

MissDefiant will be performing the single live on 1st February at The Hoxton Square Bar And Kitchen for their ICYMI Single Launch Party. This industry night will showcase a new live set including material from their upcoming album performed live by Emily and Jordan, along with a band. Expect vibrant performances, infectious melodies, sky high energy and eclectic collaborations.

Since launching in April of 2015 MissDefiant have created an online storm around their catchy music, fun content and engaging social media posts. MissDefiant have performed at prestigious music venues such as KOKO supporting LMFAO's Redfoo, The 02 Academy and The Brixton Jamm. They've also received a social media sponsorship from MAC Cosmetics due to their growing popularity on Twitter and Instagram along with social media collaborations with many other brands.

DOPEBOYLDN is a subversive gay rapper and has been described by Hunger Magazine as "challenging the hyper-masculine and hetero-normative discourse of hip-hop with his flamboyant style and empowering lyrics." He's releasing his EP "Sweet Poison" soon which includes "a bouncy adventure with fun drops".

Producer and DJ Escence is regularly DJ'ing in the London dance scene. She's recently remixed a track for "Rising Star" Femme and her edgy beats are made apparent in her ICYMI remix.

Born in Battle, East Sussex, Emily Rose Adams has had a passion for music from an early age. Trained as a classical soprano, she moved to London at the age of 16 where she met Jordan Cather. Emily has toured the UK and Europe in musical theatre and opera shows such as Carmen, Sopranos vs tenors and Aladdin. She has also had acting roles in popular TV programmes like Broadchurch, Holby City and Grantchester.

Jordan, originally from Plymouth, has danced with artists including Charli XCX and Years & Years, inspiring her to pursue a career in singing and songwriting. Jordan is currently studying music production at BIMM London, and together with Emily started to write music to release as MissDefiant. Jordan has also modelled for London Fashion Week, danced with comedians such as John Bishop and Paddy McGuinness and taught commercial dance classes at Pineapple Studios.

Mike Tournier, brings musical experience to the girls raw and electric sound, having previously helmed bands Fluke and Syntax. Fluke's first release was in 1989, with their music being featured on soundtracks to Tomb Raider and Sin City 1 and 2. When signed to Virgin, Fluke released 6 albums, performed at Glastonbury and toured with David Bowie and Prodigy. He then went on to start Syntax in 2000, signing to Sony in 2002 which made music that featured on soundtracks to The OC, Nip Tuck, Bones, Conviction, Driver 3 and the In Time trailer. His highlights of Syntax were appearing on Top of the Pops and touring with the Scissor Sisters. Mike enjoys working with Emily and Jordan who hope to emulate the success of bands that Mike has remixed in the past like the Rolling Stones, Bjork, Smashing pumpkins, New Order, Talk Talk, Frankie goes to Hollywood, Yellow and Simple Minds.

ICYMI represents a strong, powerful message for people that have experienced a troubled relationship, delivered with catchy pop rifts and passionate electro beats.
