COOLSAY
February 3, 2015
Coolzey and Soce the Elemental Wizard connect cross-continent LA to NY to create this 5 song EP of all new hip-hop and indie pop records just for you. 'When I first started touring as Coolzey with Schaffer the Darklord around 2005, Mark would show me rad contemporary music (I was still stuck in the 90s) that I didn't know about. He showed me the video for Soce's 'Sad and Lonely'and I was just taken by the fierce and dark comedic juxtaposition of Soce's happy beats and voice with the tragic subject matter. We became friends shortly thereafter. Our collaboration 'Graduation Day' from 'Coolzey and the Search for the Hip Hop Hearts' is the most popular jam from that album. I get more requests to perform it at shows than any other song in my catalogue. I wanted to try and capture the same juxtaposition of slapstick comedy and serious tragedy in my lyrics that moved me in Soce's work while still retaining my voice. I also am a strong supporter of Andrew being an unapologetically openly gay rapper in the homophobic hip hop world. I support gay rights and feel that the gay community is still not anywhere near as accepted as they should be in the present day. I was even kicking around the idea of titling the album 'Support Gay Rights or Die' just to get it into people's faces but I felt that it would have been misleading to the content, and we settled for the more inviting 'Coolsay'. These 5 songs were whittled down from at least twice as many that I was working on. There was a bonus 6th track available only with the pre-sale, and then it was purposefully vaulted.' -Z

about

Coolzey Fairfield, Iowa

Golden era hip-hop roots planted in black Iowa dirt are the foundation. Growth tempered by alternative era rock influence. This along with a love for the juxtaposition of the dark, horrific nature of life paired with a slapstick and comedic view of the world allow for a wide, unpredictable arsenal ranging from soul-spilling indie bedroom rock to wise-cracking battle rap and on to radio pop. ... more
