This Hamilton, Ontario native caught my attention last September with the release of her slick, electrifying electro-R&B debut album Pull My Hair Back. Now Lanza has dropped a modcast mixtape for Modular, securing her creative intelligence and credibility as an artist.
The new mixtape, which features cuts from Tink, Shlohmo and Ty Dolla $ign, has the perfect blend of ‘90s dance elements, classic R&B hooks, hip-hop and electronic highs. The transitions from one section of the mixtape to the next are seamless and catchy.
If you are longing for an intriguing blend of classic hip-hop, electronic beats and R&B rhythms with a modern twist to jam along to, Lanza’s 34-minute mixtape should feed your appetite.
