Crosstown Rebels is proud to present the smash single 'Radar' from Riz MC.
Riz MC is an amazing UK talent, hotly tipped actor and amazing MC this is his new single that defies categorization. 'Radar' is a monster of a tune, built from an infectious riff that immediately gets under your skin. Simultaneously
ballsy and classy, it's a bold musical creation with an intense sound; biting lyrics cut through banging hypnotic beats to devastating effect, pitching somewhere between Mos Def and the Prodigy. Recorded in a tiny, non-professional
studio, the claustrophobic feel of Radar compliments the lyrics. “It's about drowning in information, advertising, and labeling - and how that makes you pigeonhole everything you see… You should listen to it LOUD to get the full
impact - I'm not great at making background music. “
'People like People', reissued here as a B-side, was previously released independently and hammered by Huw Stephens, Zane Lowe, and Jo Whiley. It's another flurry of jabs at modern life over more minimal, edgey, and
addictive beats. With its restless forward momentum, it speaks of the pressure to conform to the cult of cool. “People like rock stars who do smack, singers that get trashed, and models that might snap...” . Says Riz, "It's not a
matter of wagging my finger - if my lyrics are cutting, I don't stop short of pointing the finger at myself in them."
The package comes complete with a remix from leader of the electronic underground, LOCODICE with his 'Loco In A Box' mix of Radar. Stripping back the original into a twisted, sexy groove of a techno monster, this track has
been exciting the talents of leading DJs from Sasha and Tiefschwarz through to Radio Slave and Luciano.
