Today, Suzi Analogue, the multi-genre artist best known for her ingenious vocal and production contributions to genre-bending urban music, shares the news about her new EP CHILLS + THRILLS and a remix for Death Grips’ “Stockton” available as a free download. Just last week, Death Grips, the rebellious Hip-Hop group from Sacramento, California tweeted a link inviting everyone to download their stems for free. We’re not exactly sure why Death Grips released their stems for free but they did and it inspired Suzi to create the uzi flip you’ll hear below.
CHILLS + THRILLS is counted as her first self-produced EP set to be released on her own label Never Normal Records on February 11th. It’s called CHILLS + THRILLS,, because the body of music travels on a sonic pathway of the chillwave to hyper ballads. It’s meant to highlight Analogue’s skill as a songwriter and a producer, as she’s written, recorded and automated the entire project.
If you’re wondering what’s up with the plus sign over her eye, “it signifies a punch in the eye,” Analogue explains.
But my vision remains positive. It’s about me bringing human feeling back into music and production cause with all the digital recordings; it’s lost.
*Suzi Analogue plays live at The Barbary with Cities Aviv on February 6th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
