“I know it’s not all in my head.”

“Silence” by Kuizz featuring Haneri | We’ve written about Kuizz before; we’ve written about Haneri before. I should have figured out the two would collaborate soon. Well, here we are. They have collaborated. And as I catch up with my inbox due to really high piles of work over the past week, here’s a relatively jumpy song called “Silence”, whose last bits of “eh-eh-eh” provide a climax you didn’t expect. This bop from just three hours away by plane (for me) is a decent bounce, and if this leads to more collaborations between the two – I imagine it would be better – then, well, let’s have it! But this one, it’s good. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)


“It’s okay that I’m not like you.”

“Uncool” by Kuizz | This guy’s name gave me a thought. “Maybe his music is that cool, slightly hipster-y pop,” I thought. Well, no. This track from Kuizz is a pretty chill thing – a just-right soulful bouncer that doesn’t drill down too hard. He’s been writing and producing songs for others after studying in Melbourne, and only recently has he done stuff for himself: this is off his debut EP Till The End, which was released last year. But the most interesting part came early into the press release, when it revealed he’s from Kuala Lumpur. Oooh. Another Malaysian on my pages – and another Malaysian who found his way through these pages via a PR agency from Europe. How do these things happen? And when will we ever? [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
