EP: C.Z. – bathtub

Over the past year C.Z. (of M|O|D)’s sound has gone in a number of different directions.  He started buzzing with a sound that could be pretty easily classified as trap with songs like “Doin’ What I Do” and over the past few months has moved towards a heavy UK Garage influence with songs like “wana do”.  Now, with bathtub, C.Z, is releasing his …
