Uncompromising and diverse, thrilling and ambitious” – The Independent

“Hip-hop doing what it does best – using language to interrogate and investigate subjects the rest of pop chooses to ignore… Rapacious, right-on shit” – DJ Mag
“A dark menacing hybrid of dubstep beats, barking synths and his surprisingly mellifluous singing voice” – Big Issue
Riz MC will release ‘All of You’ on June 13th through Confirm/Ignore. ‘All of You’ is to be the final single from his critically acclaimed debut album ‘MICroscope’.
‘MICroscope’ set Riz MC apart as a singular voice with a bold and innovative musical vision. It bristles with risks, intensity, and intelligence. It is an uncompromising album and doesn’t fit easily into neat categories. Incisive rhymes are delivered with humour, venom, and vulnerability – whether cutting across dense layers of bass or interlacing with acoustic strings.
‘All of You’ is a brooding love song about the darker side to relationships – power, pride, and wanting ownership of someone. The official video features Riz and rising starlet, actress Jodie Whittaker (Venus, Attack the Block). The soft singing packs an intensely intimate punch, with brutal lyrical honesty complimented by sparse, distorting bass. RacknRuin offers a deep, dark, rave remix of the original, which has already been destroying dancefloors on its early outings.
‘MICroscope’ isn’t just a sonically innovative album – it also has a high concept live show, video game, and a short film, all set within a bold, sci-fi story-world. The groundbreaking live show, both fully immersive and interactive, has already won over discerning crowds and hardened critics at Fabric, Glastonbury and Latitude festival, “Riz seems to have done it all. The show served as a platform to incorporate his varying methods and mastery of expressing himself via different media, an impressive feat” (Clash). He will be touring the unique experience again this autumn.
