The news broke last week about how US based trap artist UZ is actually a variety of other artists, including house producer Plezier and twice World Champion DJ TROUBL. He let fans know his true identity after taking off his mask, and said of the reveal:
“The anonymity was fun when I started it 5 years ago, but now I feel like there’s too many masked artists and it really has become more of a gimmick than a message. Our motto at the time was to let the music speak by itself and not focus on the artist. It’s still true, but now that I’m a curator and I’m working full-time on my label Quality Goods Records, I need to make myself heard, talk to people face to face, etc.… Also people need to know where I’ve come from and where I’m going – right here, right now. It’s just the beginning of a whole new journey for me and I’m really excited about it.”
Now the word is out, fans are also treated to his full album release of Layers, a truly ground-breaking series of twelve tracks – many of which are artist collaborations. From the blistering ‘Bad Gurlz’ ft. OG Maco to the more chilled out instrumental ‘Without You,’ UZ covers huge amount of musical ground with this collection.
We highly recommend you check out this LP, and you can get a copy from here.
