Lil Mz 313
Data Bass Records
TBR: 16th July
Ghettotech royalty and creator of music used in Starz on Power TV, Lil Mz 313 releases fresh remixes and originals on this new record. This EP marks the beginning of the next chapter for this artist. We know she's going the whole journey and it's a great send off if we've ever heard one. Based in Detroit and fortified with the sounds of Miami Bass, it was when she met DJ Godfather that connections were made. A record soon emerged that was made in collaboration with Will Simpson aka DJ Omega. She's also produced music with DJ Rashad, who sadly succumbed to drugs in 2014. Part of Lil Mz will surely be flying a flag for this great name in the years to come.
The first track is called Porno Sex. It begins with a quick short arpeggio loop that takes us up and down. A snapping rhythm with claps and snare works with a throbbing bass. The synth fades and Lil Mz begins her vocals. Rhymes almost rapped verses cast conjure over the flow. Melody rises in fast and choppy bursts as breaking drum riffs rise with the tide. Retro sounds and modern rhythm choices work with cut and dubbed loops and layers that surf the deep and multi-textured ocean. The second number is the instrumental version. The rhythms and selections are laid bare for us to explore. We love the sound of her vocals, but I guess there are times when Porno Sex isn't something you want on loudspeaker. This track gives us something clean to enjoy when the family is round.
A scattering of various beats unfurls for Fuck Me With His Eyes. A bass begins to throb as quick lyrics merge with snare and hat. Be warned, this track has some explicit lyrics. Lots of groove layers in as repeating beats and drum fills ramp up the energy with continual variation. The lyrics repeat as a poem with emotional and dramatic content. The continual use of inventive drums with evocative rhythms brings out a true sense of spontaneity.
This fiery and audacious EP ends on the remix of Super Swag. The famous tune from the silver screen is reinvented as a choppy and disco fused entry. Upbeat and catchy beats smash out the groove as lyrics continue the ghetto diva frontage. We need to pay attention to this one, she's got nerve, talent, and class. This makes a lethal combination.
