Fresh out on SKOOP Records, Edinburgh-based MC and producer Tzusan’s latest project blurs the boundaries between genres and moods to create a distinctly Scottish style of alternative rap, balancing the bleak and the haunting with the beautiful.
Fizzy Milk is a fragmented vision of Tzusan’s internal and external state. Across 7 tracks, he pieces together a conceptual guide to lockdown living in an unforgiving Scottish winter, surrounded by both post-industrial brutalism and old gothic grandeur. You can feel the care that went into crafting this self-produced album, with Tzusan meandering between gruff humour, fatalistic dread and deep meditative reflection over his perfectly fitting transcendental instrumentals. Fizzy Milk is a project to experience from front to back in a dark room, alone and sealed off from the rest of the world, allowing Tzusan to take you on this journey through his mind.
As well as a digital version, Fizzy Milk is also available as a limited-edition cassette which comes with an A3 poster and a book of lyrics, art and photography.
