ASHNIKKO Covers: Rollacoaster Magazine Autumn/ Winter 2020
The provocateur on new track “Daisy”, and teaming up with Beats and TikTok on the “dominatrix boss bitch” visuals.
Ashnikko is a humanoid robot drenched in salmon ruffles, crowned with a torturous hardware monocle. Then a rave-dominatrix bumblebee in a striped bodysuit and threatening spikes. Better the devil you know in a searing red latex bull suit, perched gingerly on a mountain of chilis. And then a futuristic blue extraterrestrial in a mesh unitard with metallic harnessing – ice cube stacks balancing on every limb. Mystical and depraved all at once, it is the hyper-coloured universe dreamt up by the genre-bending American provocateur for the teaser of her new music video for “Daisy”.
But there’s a catch: it’s not quite finished yet. Ashnikko has teamed up with Beats by Dr. Dre and TikTok to launch bombastic new campaign #BeatsDaisyChallenge, which will call upon the TikTok community to create a series of clips to be then used in the visuals for the raucous and empowering new track.
