MOOCHY releases the 2nd EP to build momentum to the August release of his new album, Movement, the final chapter his Re-Moments series. This 2nd EP features special guests such as Shing02, Yoshihide Otome. Another killer single has arrived from Juzu a.k.a. Moochy!
01. Grace Feat. Shing02
Starting off with a sublime guitar intro, a hypnotic tabla and bottom heavy live drums, these elements pleasantly and deeply encolors this track. And with JUZUs characteristic electronics commanding an alternative element, unifies all into a spellbinding track. Also, with a psychedelic spacey guitar, an uplifting sax, an aesthetic harmoniums (reed organ) sound color, a liquid acoustic guitar, all sounds intersects with Shing02s trailblazing rap and mystic female chorus intertwining to make this track quite subtle and profound but is also with strong message.
02. Koza Feat. Ras Tweed
Starting with an amazing intro provided by a very relaxed Okinawan shamisen and waves SE, bassline that runs deep and goes back into time. Also, lyrics rapped by Ras Tweed of Rockers Hi-Fi & Overproof Sound System fame, provides a bridge between roots reggae and the future and blends into the world of JUZU. In a tense, dubby mood the story unfolds, in a detached tone, and in the overlapping sounds, there is hidden power which reliefs us from this unjust society.
This four to the floor track, with its bottom heavy effects and grooves encrusted, the overall instrumentation is very much pleasant, a soulful blues harp bi-polarly intersecting, guitar and percussion projecting a moody atmosphere, nostalgia and modernity opens a door to a new dimension
