Michael Uzowuru 'Pink Orchids' (EP stream)
Published Aug 18, 2014Michael Uzowuru's career has been blossoming of late. After producing tracks for the likes of Vic Mensa, Mobb Deep and more, the SoCal producer has given up a quick suite of songs on his own as Pink Orchids.
The five-song effort presents a wide range of sounds. "Of the Moons" homes in on textured guitar plucks, electric piano runs and lunar textures while Chance the Rapper cohort Peter Cottontale helps fit the jovial "Sunday" with blaring horns. Steady shaker rhythms, swelling strings and low-key funk bass back Vic Mensa's melodic, shooting star vocals on "Wave." "Mint Green" plays extra fresh with a series of jangling guitar sonics, electro throwback beats and moody keyboard drones.
