SummaryRiz MC makes sonically innovative and lyrically sharp music, which has won him a loyal online following and sparked huge press, TV and radio interest. Championed by BBC Radio 1 (through the 'Introducing' stage at Glastonbury, the Electric Proms and a Maida Vale session, as well as heavy radio play), he has toured his groundbreaking interactive live-show around the UK and internationally, to rave reviews; and played gigs from Fabric to the Royal Festival Hall with the likes of Massive Attack, Nitin Sawhney, Dizzee Rascal, and Mos Def. 'MICroscope' - and the immersive multimedia world he has created around it - add up to a fresh, powerful, entertaining and thought-provoking experience, and set Riz apart as a singular voice with an innovative and bold musical vision.
'MICroscope' bristles with risks, intensity, and intelligence. The depth and ambition of the lyrics cut across the honed contours of impossible-to-categorize futuristic bass, as easily as they gel with acoustic strings, or pierce dense layers of jazz-electronica. Working on the original album with tech-breaks rising star Lazersonic (Zak Frost, Turbo, Eye Industries), and Glasgow label NMBRS' hot shot signing Redhino, Riz is mixing big ideas with big bass.
'MICroscope' isn't just an album - it also has a high concept live show, website, and short film, each giving us a glimpses into an elaborate sci-fi story-world. Both at the live show and online, 'MICroscope' invites you into a world of sonic warfare - where the secret government agency the Department of Culture and Communication seeks to control the population with powerful sonic viruses - and only the underground resistance code maned 'MICroscope', stands in their way. The results will literally move your mind.
