HMZA.’s first full length record is ‘23′ with production from RIDL, Durazzo, Gelapi, Stari, Sanko and 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 Gee. (on 3 tracks), Atosa (on 2 tracks), Edgewize & Gyro.
