HMZA.’s latest full length record is ‘23′, produced largely by RIDL, with a few compositional assists from Durazzo, Gelapi, Stari and a few others. The 9-tracks on ’23’ span sounds ranging from contemporary rap, to traditional boom bap style hip hop, with splashes of alternative rock and soul, and even some experimental styles; at times exploring electronic, downtempo, synth-heavy sounds, which stray a bit from the expected sounds of contemporary rap. The 23 album features collaborations with Edgewize, Atosa, Gee. and HMZA.’s GoD crew affiliate Gyro.
