MZA beatmaker in his studio

31-year-old beatmaker and DJ, MZA has managed something amazing with his aurally intoxicating third ep Impermanence.

Hailing from Singapore, he delves with gusto into a plethora of genres from the UK electronic scene.

His ep transports us into an 80’s, 90’s rave scene, in this ten-track ep. Tracks like the thunderous Scatman Corruptor and Takeover conjuring vibes reminiscent of LTJ Bukem.

In this latest project the Singaporean/Japanese MZA has encapsulated that UK underground energy with startling impact.

We had to interview him in our never-ending aim to push amazing sounds#itchysilk
