RIZ MC – ‘All Of You’ feat. Aruba Red and Plan B
aaamusic | On 25, Feb 2012
The ‘All Of You’ EP is the first official single release by Riz MC on Tru Thoughts, since the acutely talented and unique artist signed to the label in late 2011. Out on 12th March, this digital release shines the spotlight on a collection of stunning new reworks of the dark, twisted love song ‘All Of You’ including a highly anticipated new version featuring Plan B on rapping duties, as well as remixes by dBridge (Instra:Mental) and RackNRuin (Black Butter).
The new video for ‘All Of You’ feat. Aruba Red and Plan B stars Riz himself alongside Plan B and celebrated rising actress Jodie Whittaker (Attack The Block, Venus).
The brooding, brutal lyrical honesty of this dark song is complimented by sparse, distorting bass care of tech-breaks rising star Lazersonic on production. The original version (self-released in 2011) gained BBC Radio 1 tastemaker support from DJs including Huw Stephens, and these immense new versions are set to launch this track into a whole new sphere.
Riz MC makes sonically innovative and lyrically sharp music, which has won him a loyal online following and sparked huge press, TV and radio interest. Championed by BBC Radio 1 (through the ‘Introducing’ stage at Glastonbury, the Electric Proms and a Maida Vale session, as well as heavy radio play), he has toured his groundbreaking interactive live-show around the UK and internationally, to rave reviews; and played gigs from Fabric to the Royal Festival Hall with the likes of Massive Attack, Nitin Sawhney, Dizzee Rascal and Mos Def. His critically acclaimed digital album, ‘MICroscope’ – and the immersive multimedia world he has created around it – add up to a fresh, powerful, entertaining and thought-provoking experience, and set Riz apart as a singular voice with an innovative and bold musical vision.
The ‘All Of You’ EP is a taster of the first ever CD release of ‘MICroscope’ which is due out on Tru Thoughts in Summer 2012, boasting a stash of new content which sees Riz MC developing his ideas further and raising the bar again. The original digital album was heaped with praise on its initial release in 2011, garnering a swathe of column inches, and this deluxe physical outing on the established indie label brings all-new skits created and recorded in collaboration with the mighty Zed Bias, plus a host of hot remixes.
