Since popping onto the scene back in 2012, French DJ/producer UZ has become a worldwide driving force in a variety of electronic genres and under a variety of monikers. Marking a return to his original, groundbreaking trap roots the newest UZ project, “Trinity” features fifteen tracks of fresh material along with a long list of sought after collaborators that also represents a new path that sees UZ soaring to new heights musically and creatively.
Alongside his big hits from the last 12 months including “Fire,” “Bang Bang,” and “Awakening,” there are numerous unheard songs on the release. The talent on the EP is impressive, including UK grime artist Snowy, producers HOLLY, HUCCI, Brothel, Chicago emcee Solo Sam, platinum artist, DECAP as well as exciting up and coming artists TWNTY8, Vinny Virgo and Somber all packed into the album.
Discussing the “Trinity” LP, UZ told us that “I started working on Trinity about one and a half years ago. I have always been a prolific artist but I really wanted to take my time on this last album. I have been writing music under the influence for the past 15 years or so but fortunately I became totally sober almost 2 years ago, so this was going to be a different approach to the writing process. My vision became clearer than ever and I decided to focus on what I really wanted. As you may already know I have been producing music under 3 different aliases during the past 20 years but those 3 different personas never really crossed paths. Plezier is my strictly melody driven UK house project, DJ Troubl is a technical Turntablist and UZ is the masked underground Trap producer. Why not mix them all? Well that’s what’s happened on Trinity. Trinity is the perfect concept for this record because of all its different meanings: 3rd album, 3 aliases influenced by 3 cities where I’ve lived which is associated with each alias (Paris / London / Los Angeles). It represents the Past / Present / Future of my career not only as UZ but as a whole artist.”
