JMZ debuts on SpitFireHipHop with ‘Let Me Be Great’ mixtape.
JMZ releases his eleven-track debut mixtape titledâ€˜Let Me Be Greatâ€™.
JMZâ€™s mix of styles is dizzying; in part echoing the kind of sample technique youâ€™d find on Kanye Westâ€™s â€˜The College Dropoutâ€™, but with a beat thatâ€™ll chew your food up, put the shit back in your mouth and help you swallow. The mixtape comes to you via new music blog and label Province, JMZ said:
â€œIâ€™m super happy with how it came out. It took longer to finalise than I thought, and it went through so many changes in every aspect but now I think its where I want it to be. I’m trying to represent for the producers that don’t get enough credit.â€
JMZ, a former Music Technology student, cites the likes of Sango, Boi 1da, andÂ Just Blaze as key inspirations when making music. Add that to the influence of Kaytranada & Mike WiLL Made-It and JMZâ€™s lurching, other-worldly take on Trap and Hip Hop begins to make sense. From humble beginnings [a Macbook, set of Yamaha HS5s, a midi keyboard and a whole load of YouTube tutorials], the British producer is now ready to enjoy â€œdoing what I love, which is making music and being creative.â€
