PREMIERE: Rizzla + False Witness – Isla Toxico EP

rizzlafalsewitness

Isla Toxico is not a vacation spot, but it is a destination—one steeped in the afterbirth of colonialism. It’s a banana republic whose only export is a maniacal dusk-to-dawn livestream of misfit urbano, jumpstyle, and circuit house. Its benevolent oligarchs are KUNQ kingpins Rizzla and False Witness.

If that sounds scary and exotic, you’re probably just Othering again. This three-track EP is a love-letter to the apocalypse ahora mismo, when native and stranger co-mingle, when we can ha! and tra! dance without skipping a beat. Isla Toxico features vocal samples from Pepper MaShay, Joswa in Da House, and La Delfi, with artwork by Itzel Xoco.

Stream or download for free—before it, like all good things, gets embargoed.
