Incgnto, a management company focused on developing and promoting left-field acts with global creative ambitions, has launched this week. The company promises to be a ‘cocoon for intriguing artists’, focusing on more challenging sounds.
Incgnto is the brainchild of Eva Trifonas, who has spent the last three years as Digital Media Manager at Inertia, working on ground-breaking artists such as Aphex Twin, Baauer, Caribou, Japanese Wallpaper, Kelela and many more. In this capacity, she managed the company’s radio relationships (including key stakeholder triple j) and was responsible for their digital marketing & social media strategies for all artists and the Inertia brand. Prior to this role, Eva spent three years at Ministry of Sound Australia as part of the marketing team.
The company launches its roster with KUCKA, arguably one of the most talked-about unsigned voices in Australian electronic music. A triple-threat vocalist, producer and instrumentalist, KUČKA’s first single, ‘Divinity’, reached #2 on the US Billboard Twitter Emerging Artist charts and she’s since collaborated with everyone from A$AP Rocky, Cosmo’s Midnight, Dro Carey to Flume - with whom she performed at Coachella and penned two songs for his latest record, Skin.
KUCKA has racked up plenty of plaudits of her own, from Stoney Roads Breakthrough Producer of the Year in 2015 to four WAMI awards including the coveted Song of the Year. KUCKA was recently invited to speak at a Women In Electronic Music panel as part of Vivid and ontop of that, debuted her #Portals show also at Vivid, a audiovisual collaboration with 3D electronic artist Rachael Archibald.
Says KUCKA: “'I'm very excited to be working with Eva, she is super switched on and creative. incgnto's vision is perfectly in tune with my music so I feel it will be the right match to take me to the next level in my career.”
Eva adds “I'm extremely excited to launching my own company with such an incredibly hard working and talented artist. I truly believe in KUCKA as an artist and a human, she has a very bright career ahead and perfectly fits in with the ethos of what I'm creating at incgnto ”
Over the next few weeks there will be more exciting KUCKA announcements being made.
