Blackhaine is a Preston born, Salford based artist. First established through his choreography work, collaborating with a number of artists – probably most notably on Kanye West's stadium-sized listening parties before the release of Donda. His work draws as much on the Japanese avant-garde, with butoh a prominent influence, donk, drill rap, experimental music and contemporary dance. Blackhaine released his debut EP Armour in 2021 to critical acclaim, in addition to his experimental noise project Did U Cum. The follow up to Armour was released in June of 2022.
