We Are Ugly But We Have The Music – Azizi Gibson

BBCOVER

Azizi Gibson doesn’t have a home. Raised in Thailand, he spent ten years in Maryland before relocating to his current base, Los Angeles. Azizi’s life has been one of melding cultures and experiences into something new and distinct. His music brings together unique experiences, a love for boundary pushing hip-hop, and a swagger with universal appeal.

Azizi has always been a rapper, and he’s always been different. During his childhood in Thailand, he was banging Dre and Snoop, putting words together over any beat he could find. In high school in Maryland, he started establishing himself as a hip-hop presence, battling and recording. He saw opportunity in LA and took the plunge. Fate (and a chance encounter in the gym) brought him together with Flying Lotus. Now, using the Brainfeeder platform, Z has plans to launch himself and his preHISTORIC crew into the popular consciousness and bring them a taste of next level hip-hop.

The title track from his latest album ‘Backward Books’ was produced by Christchurch local Kamandi and was recorded at Red Bull Studios in Auckland during Azizi’s time in New Zealand for the Red Bull Sound Select Block Party. ‘This isn’t even the beginning, the beginning hasn’t even started. I wanna tour with Kamandi, I like it, and the worlds gonna like it.’

We Are Ugly But We Have The Music – Lowell

image - lowell

After teasing fans with the first taste of her debut full length in the form of street track ‘I Love You Money’, Canadian chanteuse Lowell returns with the first official single from the album – ‘The Bells’.

Opening with the delicate and whimsical noise of bells ringing in harmony, Lowell’s sass is instantly present within the first line – “Would you give me a beat?” ‘The Bells’ percussive rhythms and 80’s infused synths once again highlight Lowell’s unique vocal delivery and knack for left-of-centre production that was previously introduced with her first single ‘Cloud 69’ from her debut EP “I Killed Sara V.” which was released earlier this year.

We Are Ugly But We Have The Music – Joywave

artworks-000070020467-hcvq0x-original

JOYWAVE is an eclectic group specializing in alternative pop hailing from Rochester, NY. After the success of 2013’s 88888 mixtape, they established their Hollywood Records imprint Cultco Music, through which they released their debut EP ‘How Do You Feel?’ on March 1, 2014 in the US.

With a catalog that deftly jumps between genres, the EP demonstrates the bands pointed talent for blending influences. The JOYWAVE sound is grounded in classic songwriting, often injected with house music’s energy, disco’s playfulness and an overarching hip-hop spirit. Where any other band might lose its identity in the quest to experiment with so many different sounds, JOYWAVE’S all-embracing approach and ineffable knack for making music that feels good puts their distinct personality front and center.

We Are Ugly But We Have The Music – Anna Lunoe

ARTWORK - Anna Lunoe

Lunoe’s life-long curiosity about music started to take shape at the age of five, when she began making mixtapes for her friends by putting her tape-deck up against the radio to record her favorite songs. While she grew up in a home where impromptu jam-sessions were a regular occurrence. After leaving school she hosted a radio show on Australia’s guerilla FBI Radio, and eventually decided to start producing dance music herself.

Lunoe is most captivating with her production, vocal, and mixing skills put to work. “Real Talk,” a production alongside Touch Sensitive was a Chicago House influenced rhythm track that quickly bounced to # 1 on Beatport’s Indie Club Chart where it stayed – for four months. All Out, the first single has just been released from her forthcoming EP. She will be touring and playing the track at a bunch of festivals this year including Lollapalooza, Squamish, Splash House.
