French DJ iZem’s second EP, like his 2011 debut, is mix of dub vibrations, lazy rhymes, tranquil beats and Brazilian breezes and Afropean crosswinds that reverberate through a multicultural and luxurious ultra lounge. We’re listening now, and we can tell you the acoustics are fabulous. This outing from the Lisbon-based, world travelling producer and Groovalizacion Radio DJ is sparer than the first, but somehow deeper.
The EP is out January 24, but we’ve got spongy synth and soulful groove of “Belén,” caressed by the fleecy voice of Yolanda Reyes, right here. Pick EP2 up when it’s out, because “Belén” is nice, but you are going to want to hear “Rocksteady” too.
