December 11, 2020 Admin 0

“Massively interesting character and a lot to come from him I suspect” – BBC Introducing

“SFZ is one of those artists whose music puts society under the magnifying glass, and delivers, in every track, a cold shower of reality.” – Planet Singer

Following closely in the footsteps of other British breakthrough rappers such as Dave, Classically trained pianist and rapper, SFZ (also known as Joe Ordish) is bursting onto the UK Hip Hop scene and making waves with his unique, interesting raps and classical piano fusion.

With the surge of lo-fi hip hop and rap into the popular music scene, this style slots perfectly into the gap of what we were missing, bringing us real hard-hitting lyrics with a melodic juxtaposition to the piano.

Joe flexes all of his skills on this track, not just composing and writing the song, but self-recording and producing as well. It’s no surprise that BBC Introducing has already caught wind of the rapper.

Elevate is the debut single for SFZ; it’s a super-chill..

Glitter: 6 Trans and Non-Binary Artists to Support During Transgender Awareness Week

November 17, 2020 Admin 0

With Transgender Day Of Remembrance around the corner, its important to remember that trans musicians are everywhere, and have always been everywhere, as forerunners in the musical industry. From standing in the spotlight back in the 60s with gospel notes to leading punk rocks bands in the 2010s, trans musicians are here to make their voices heard.

Ryan Cassata

Ryan was one of the first transgender singers I had come across that I was aware of being trans. His music often sings of the reality of being a trans man in the world of rigid gender binaries, and speaks openly about not wanting to take the Hormone drug, Testosterone – otherwise known as just “T” – because of its unpredictable affects on his vocals. T lowers the voice of the person in question, sometimes meaning they cant control their voice the way they used to.

My favourite song by Ryan has to be “Gender Binary (Fuck You)”, which came out during the first Lockdown, and the video project saw many other trans and queer peopl..
