Unheard until now, I remixed one of SZA`s first songs. I have to thank Remy Banks (New York Rapper) who I had met up with at the Electracraft studios in Manhattan. It was a leisurely day & Remy hipped me to her. Funnily enough that same session my girlfriend took her pregnancy test in the studio bathroom & found out she was pregnant with my child. I will not forget it. Anyway, I fell in love with the song Aftermath for its lyrics instantly…
I apologise for waiting to tell you for so long that I am not human.
I am made of Bacon, fairy tales, pixie dust – I don’t feel.
I hung myself, I didnt die, Im omnipotent, Im alive
Not real but Im alive
I remember her following me back on twitter, and I would send beats. One valentines day I was in New York and I messaged her to see if she wants to get in the studio… It never happened. Maybe the DM seemed thirsty on V Day hahaha! “lets make music on valentines day” can sound a bit no chill… But SZA continued to like all my baby photos on Insta when paz was born! So there is that haha.
Anyway I got the stems for aftermath from producer WNDRBRD and made this mix. I never released it because at the time I felt it was too Minimal for my tastes… But listening back I think it is a nice blissful take on one of my fav songs ever. IMO the original was an anthem released too early in SZAs career to be lapped up in mass adoption!
Hope u can dig it & that you had a smashing new year!

This is a Sampler for Volume 2, the continuation of Volume 1. Hence different to all my other recent music. This is me being a completeist and me dancing like no 1 is watching. Cept you can watch, cos ur a lovely bunch and I havent asked the press in on this at all. So whatever, if they fuck with it or not its not my wish. I have a record coming out soon that will be proper and rn I am just having a bit of fun before that all kicks off.
UPDATE: The full project is now available to stream/purchase.

Long-time ITZSOWEEZEE favourite, Star Slinger, releases a surprise EP called Sketchy, containing four brand new tracks for everyone to enjoy. On top of that, the entire project is free to download via Bandcamp. The Manchester producer is getting prepared to drop two new EPs later this year, so make sure you keep your eyes and ears peeled for those drops.
Me feat. Me. Dropping some new music before my 2 x EPs come out later this year. Also I realise its the day David Bowie died at 69 🙁 RIP DB. Well to be honest this just confirms life is too short & artistry can stop at any minute. So I tip my hat to the fearless man that was David Bowie, and here is a new piece of work I was a little bit nervous about releasing. Life is too short.
