The Godmother of Minimal Wave

New York native Veronica Vasicka has unearthed countless analog synth wave gems and single-handedly revived a forgotten musical subgenre with Minimal Wave Records, the label she founded in 2005. And, with Minimal Wave subsidiary Cititrax, a new generation of like-minded composers have found a home for their DIY releases. Vasicka's influential sound was partly cultivated via online station East Village Radio. (She was the station's first program director.) And her reputation cemented with the release of the compilation The Minimal Wave Tapes Volume One on Stones Throw in 2010. Ever since, she's spread the word of this incredible sound to audiences worldwide via releases on her vaunted labels and through her DJ sets.
