Mona Lazette is one of the most interesting new vocalists in the electronic music scene. Raised in London Brixton, living in Berlin.
This is her first solo appearance as Mona Lazette, after she has appeared on records by Kele (Bloc Party), Catz ‘n Dogz, Munk and Argy. It’s house, yes. But not the usual deep house Ableton kind of mainstream sound you get to hear everywhere these days, but a more black music influenced, soulful type of 4 to the floor music.
It’s has a certain Jay Dilla feel to it, but could also have been made in Paris end of the nineties. Produced by Mathias Modica/Munk – based on a sample from the 1970 jazz funk scene, that some might remember because a certain hip hop group used it 20 years ago, too.
Remixes come from Jad & The Ladyboy, The Rhythm Odyssey from Golf Channel/New York (The boy used to be Chicken Lips before!) and Art Of Tones.
