About this item
Amsterdam based, Brazilian-born producer and vocalist LYZZA is Big Dada’s latest signing since re-launching as a label run by Black, POC & Minority Ethnic people for Black, POC & Minority Ethnic artists. Making waves in the contemporary electronic scene since the age of 17, Lyzza is a force to be reckoned with and has been described by Beatport as 'one of electronic music’s most promising young avant-pop producers.'
With three EPs under her belt, her fourth project “Mosquito” strives to show her range of abilities within sound and interdisciplinary art. The 10 track mixtape draws inspiration from mosquitoes and the psychological associations we have with them. Characteristically, mosquitoes are invasive and take up space, and this is something that Lyzza strives to be as an artist of colour.
The mixtape boasts a catalogue of alt-pop tracks that mingle English, Spanish and Portuguese lyrics, and are set to be accompanied by several music videos, a series of vlogs and a short film.
Lyzza's mixtape features trap artist La Zowi from Madrid and Zambian-Canadian rapper Backxwash who were handpicked due to their physical locations and pre-established listeners in order to imitate how mosquitoes spread themselves over territories.
Lyzza has played across Europe, where she has played high-profile festivals such as Sonar, Melt!, Pukkelpop, Montreux Jazz Festival and Primavera Sound, the last performance resulting in Pitchfork recognising her as one of the Best of Primavera Sound 2018.
Most recent live performances include a set at Komedia Studio, The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, UK, Zoom Festival in Frankfurt, Germany. Recommended if you like… Shygirl, LSDXOXO, Rosalia, Arca, Sophie, Mykki Blanco, Grimes, Kali Uchis, Kelela, Tomasa Del Real, Tinashe
