LA DJ/producer KITTENS has just leveled up with her debut solo release, Zanon & On.
The two-track EP boasts production mastery, and an equally powerful message as well:
“Zanan” means woman in Farsi and was also the name of the only womens’ magazine in Iran, which the government sadly shut down. So Zanan & On to me is kind of like a more inclusive version of ‘The Future Is Female,’ meant to empower women and other people who feel they don’t belong.”
The empowering musician utilizes rising New York star Flipp Dinero and Kollision of ATL’s Quality Control for “To Light,” which taps into Middle Eastern influences, punching drums and heavy duty percussion for a pop-friendly hip-hop production. She rounds out the EP with another first-ever” solo production, “Zanon & On.” This trap-heavy tune encompasses the fierceness that is KITTENS. After joining RL Grime on his Nova tour last year, we can’t help but think she picked up some pointers from the trap lord himself.
KITTENS proves herself with the Zanon & EP, showing the world she has a lot more to show, and we can’t wait to see it. Stream/purchase her brand new release here.
