Audio: J.Twiz "Chains"
Back from hiatus, Nigerian-born, Toronto-based MC/producer, Jonathon Twiz releases his DIY mixtape, After The Jump, featuring samples from Dam Funk, Washed Out, Royksopp, Air, Hot Chip and more. Maintaining a stream of global consciousness, this mix is laced with African references such as those found in "Chains," ft. Zellust. A call for African unity in the face of neocolonial opposition, "Chains" begins with a rebellious Fela Kuti sample, and continues with Twiz professing, "Reform is so necessary, change is needed now, we can be our own kings, yes, I see it now, history was bad to us, cant repeat it now, the people got the power but you gotta believe it now." We don't know a whole lot about Twiz yet, except that we like his mix, and following him on Twitter is a reassuring experience via proverbial wisdom...Enjoy.
