Newly released on Quality Goods Records, the label headed up by trap don UZ, is his eagerly awaited "Layers" LP. Alongside the glorious twelve tracks that make up the album, UZ has also chosen today to reveal his true identity and has removed his trademark mask.
He says of the unveiling:“The anonymity was fun when I started it 5 years ago, but now I feel like there are 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 for 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.”
We're proud to premiere "Lobby" ft. Quix and Chaz French today, and with its mesmerizing melodies and almost trance-like synth patterns, this epic collaboration works incredibly well with its varied blend of elements.
