New Music Nezzy x TT The Artist "All Night" Produced By So Drove

On Spiraling–the debut EP from Inez Genereux's project Nezzy, out September 1st–contemporary electronic pop goes headfirst with 2000s emo aesthetics, rap production signifiers and raw, honest lyrics. The end result is a rare melding of styles (pop punk, club, rap) and emotions (fear, regret, confidence) that pushes and pulls into an angsty, uplifting whole.

"All Night," which features Baltimore club mainstay TT The Artist, sounds like the collaboration Avril and Peaches should've done in 2003, updated for 2017. "Nobody At All" coats mall punk in a hyper electronic slime–a lovelorn anthem for American rejects of all ages. The title track is a call to arms with a huge power pop chorus that recalls another era of guitar music without sounding in any way retro.

Aided by production and co-writing from LA producer So Drove, Spiraling is a strong debut from an artist whose venerability and strength shines through just as strong as the hooks that drive the songs.

THUMP X SO DROVE X TT THE ARTIST X CUPCAKKE X KREAYSHAWN "GO GET YA GRIND"

Listen to the genre-hopping Los Angeles producer's gleeful posse cut "Get Ya Shine On."

After making genre-hopping club music for several years as Schwarz, the Los Angeles producer has shared his debut single under the alias So Drove, which features Chicago's CuppcakKe (who released her excellent sophomore LP Queen Elizabitch this spring), Bay Area's Kreayshawn, and Baltimore's TT The Artist.

"Get Ya Shine On" sees him complementing the three MCs' resilient verses with a glistening, opulent beat, resulting in a West Coast-style posse cut that never flags in energy or vigour. Over email, the producer told THUMP how the song came together.

"This track is like the culmination of so many things I've been wanting to do for a long time. I'm a huge CupcakKe stan, and I was able to get her verse on the track first, before there was a concept or anything. Once I got her verse, I worked on it just a bit more and was able to finish it all together with Kreayshawn and TT in LA. It's nice the internet lets you collaborate long distance with people really easily, but it was special being there in person working on the track with them."

THUMP x MOLLY HOUSE RECORDS X TT THE ARTIST x SIR JOQ x DAVOMAKESBEATS x KITTY KLAP PREMIERE

Through their Swagger Like Us parties, Bay Area duo davOmakesbeats and Kelly Lovemonster have been helping maintain San Francisco's queer nightlife scene. Looking to give more exposure to their LGBTQ talent beyond the club, davOmakesbeats and Lovemonster have teamed up once more for a new venture, Molly House Records.

On Friday, May 5, Molly House is releasing a new EP, Molly House Volume 1, which features artists including AH-MER-AH-SU, Saturn Rising, Bbymutha, DDM, and Futurehood's Mister Wallace and Kaycee Ortiz. Today, they're sharing a new single off the record, "Kitty Klap" featuring Baltimore scene stalwart TT The Artist and San Francisco choreographer Sir Joq of Vogue & Tone. Over a whiplash-inducing beat (courtesy of davOmakesbeats), TT the Artist delivers sharp but sassy raps followed by a vogue-inspired verse from JoQ.

Sir JoQ tells THUMP over email, "I was excited and nervous when I was asked to be apart of 'Kitty Klap.' I knew that my verse had to be sickening, especially when I found out that TT The Artist was going to be on the track as well. I wanted to bring vogue elements into my lyrics and was pumped that davOmakesbeats was all about it! I'm pretty slick with my words and for some reason I like talking about trade. I think 'Kitty Klap' is going to be a summer banger, and I can't wait to see everyone slay the dancefloor to it."
