"The next, next level emcee to hit to mic for Chicagos finest hip hop label Galapagos 4. This four track 10 " sampler (500 copies only) is taken from the forthcoming CD only album LifeLikeMovie due mid May. Starting with Baby Steps produced by Jackson Jones, a cinematic gangster cliché intro drops into a dirty groove with Mestizos hype rap style - killer steez. An exclusive instrumental version of American Hoffman follows next which being a Meaty Ogre means it works fine with or without vocals. On the flip When The Cameras Off (Reprint) with dusted snap and crackle bone funk production the upcoming man like Maker. To finish is Brainphone a White Lightning joint thats dope - heavy eyed and slightly world weary. Cant wait for the album Jeff."
"Mestizo delivers his message as if the camera is off, as though its just the listener seeing through his eyes. He sees the world with patience and urgency both, with the knowledge that progress takes time in love and in war, but also that you must know just when your time is right and act upon it. The music serves as the means to steady the volatile thought patterns & wicked rhyme schemes, as the mood rolls back and forth from cerebral introversion to breakneck pressure. The wide array of producers was chosen carefully for their ability to spin their own tales with beats. Jackson Jones, Meaty Ogre, DJ White Lightning, Maker, Om, Kip Killagain, Dreas & Mike Gao all put in time behind the scenes as Mestizo proclaims his views on past mistakes, present crises and the end of the world."
