The DJ and producer of hip hop and electronic dance music known as M!Z has released his latest extended-play record, “The Rezurrection EP.” The album contains six original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 20 minutes. It is proudly copyrighted 2015 FlashtheDJ Music, an independent venture for the modern music era. High-energy, packed with thumping beats, and seamlessly blending hip hop and EDM for a new sound to which few music fans will have been exposed, “The Rezurrection EP” from M!Z is a fresh take that will get dance floors jumping.
Asked to cite some artistic influences, the Montreal-based M!Z has no trouble coming up with sources.
“Alot of my influences are hip-hop related as that was mostly my background,” he writes. “I really love how Just Blaze and DJ Premier flip their samples. Timbaland is one of the best at the way he arranges his songs; I like how you don’t know what to expect from him. He’ll always come with some crazy sounds. The whole trap movement is exciting to me as well, because it mixes hip hop and EDM together in a way that I’m really feeling. I really like what Flosstradamus and Keys N Krates are doing.”
The trap sound is one which is easily discerned in M!Z’s “Rezurrection” record, but to call the EP a trap album is missing the point. “The Rez’ EP” uses equal portions of hip hop and EDM which play off one another in a way most trap artists aren’t interested in, artists who prefer favoring one genre over the other. At the same time, M!Z’s signature sound seems to come natural to him. No part of the EP strikes the listener as contrived to affect a certain feel.
Asked to describe the message and motivation behind his new album, M!Z writes, “Basically the music is to get people pumped up, whether in the club, in their cars or just in the gym. The goal was to create some heavy bass-pounding music that would make people feel hype.”
While M!Z started out as a DJ, he’s moved on to producing at full speed. All his songs were written and produced by himself.
“Except,” he notes, “for ‘Watch Out For the Gunz’ which features Young Money artist Cory Gunz, who wrote on that track as well.”
M!Z is one of the co-founders of FlashtheDJ Music and is proud to have his own outlet to release music the way he wants without compromise. With experience as a DJ and producer for over 15 years, M!Z has worked with many big studios, artists and DJ’s. He has performed in clubs and festivals all over North America.
A high-gloss (and highly entertaining) official music video for “Watch Out for the Gunz” has also been made available for public viewing at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61yKnPMx71s.
“The Rezurrection EP” by M!Z is available online worldwide. Trap, hip-hop and EDM fans should get in early.
