Singer/Rapper/Producer Drawing on an eclectic mix of influences—from ’80s techno pop, punk rock, reggae, ska, and hip hop—Santigold’s music cannot be pigeonholed. Her critically acclaimed 2008 debut album Santogold made a huge stir in indie music and rap circles alike, and while they did not receive much radio play, the tracks “Lights Out,” “Creater” and “L.E.S. Artists” were placed in video games and beer commercials. A former A&R rep at Epic Records, Santi White quit her day job to executive produce and co-wrote the 2001 Res album How I Do. She also fronted the Philadelphia punk band Stiffed, whose records were produced by Bad Brains bassist Darryl Jennifer. Jay-Z tapped Santi to rap a verse on his song “Brooklyn We Go Hard” from the soundtrack to the 2009 film Notorious. She describes her specialty as “putting things together in a way that's unexpected and genreless.”
