EP: Hanz – A Brief Guide

While most posts I make are written after listening through a track only a few times, I wanted to give my self more time for Hanz’s newest release A Brief Guide.  I’ve been following the music of Hanz for a while now as he’s grown from a sample-based and hip-hop inspired beat maker into a force all his own and …

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 …
