Not long ago, the mysterious bass producer UZ dropped his debut album Layers. Tomorrow, May 11th, we will receive UZ’s anticipated follow-up LP titled The Rebirth. However, here at TSIS we are lucky enough to premiere one of the cuts to be featured on the album a day early. The track is titled “Castle” and features a vocal accompaniment from rising artist Nevve, who has recently been featured for her many collaborations. UZ established himself as a TSIS favorite early on, with his first feature dating back to mid 2012 and shows no signs of slowing down.
When one thinks of UZ, intense, experimental trap music comes to mind. “Castle”, however, is quite the opposite. It is an easy-listening electronic song that exhibits UZ’s versatility highlighting Nevve's vocals. And while it is far different from his typical releases, UZ still manages to leave his identifiable imprint on the track with powerful percussion and resonating synths. Keep an eye out for UZ’s album drop tomorrow that will come paired with a US tour announcement, but in the meantime, “Castle” should keep you occupied. Enjoy!
