THe LYONZ have been causing a stir as of late with a series of thought-provoking cosmic hip hop EP releases. Now, they present possibly their best EP release to date by way of the joint pairing of Ecstasy and Mystery of Mr. E.
First EP track Ecstasy is a shimmering intoxicating piece of electronic music leaning on a backbone of powerful raps. The blur of experimental sounds and lyrics depicts being introduced to nightlife at a young age and falling in love with a woman from the scene. Then comes Mystery of Mr. E, which is a look inside the secret life of a mystery man. The track’s elusive free-flowing moods are underpinned by unpredictable snappy beats and heavy bass. Who is Mr. E? perhaps he is you, perhaps he is me? perhaps he is all of us leading double lives?
