Lolivez - Eyeneweyenew

from Lost @ C by Infinite Livez

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Infinite Livez returns to the mic with a vengeance on LOLIVEZ "LOST @ C", a collaboration with instrumentalist Alberto Malo — it’s a funk mustering killer trip were Lolivez take every opportunity to jam in on the ONE. We open up with "Eyeneweyenew" — relentlessly marching through a quicksand slime of sludgy basslines humming on an ocean of sizzling jellyfish omitting clouds of intoxication. The voyage continues in "Dog & Pony", that see us out of the thickest soupy gloop only to be met with whirling synth winds, odious sirens wailing from jagged rocks, and glimmering beams of sunlight through the moody stormy skies above. By the time we hit "Steaks N Garlic" the ominous seascape is behind us, we're riding frothing waves victoriously wobbling over whatever this oozing fungal ocean can muster. Finally we're met with "2 Dix", still marching forth over rabid waves, but looking back now, reflecting, spinning slowly as we go, embracing the everything within and without us all. Through all of this, Infinite brings a piercing mix of playful hooks and punchlines delivered with jagged cockney verbosity shifting into ethereal otherworldly soul, island paradise patois and revolutionary political critique interwoven with potent esoteric pop culture references; Jackson Pollack, Zardoz, the Wizard of OZ, even MJ's illusive Man in the Mirror makes an appearance — all standing in as symbolic icons for the malign forces shaping and controlling our world today. Classic cartoon and pulp sci-fi fairytale artworld allusions to pressing realtime world issues are summed up neatly on "Steaks N Garlic": “It would be funny if it wasn’t a tragedy”and with this, Infinite continues his lyrical assault against ‘the powers that be'. This has come to define Infinite's work over the last decade or so. Listening to Mr Livez you may ask yourself “why ain’t this guy getting more recognition or airtime?” — Maybe it's because the devil gets scared whenever Infinite Livez picks up a mic? LOST @ C is no exception to the rule. The proof is in the pudding on "Eyeneweyenew", with Inf stating “It’s not unusual to confuse you all with a style that’s like very unusual// Inexcusable not to be number one, thanks for nothing 'cos I’m so fearsome//”. Infinite’s flowing verbal mastery is matched only by his own harrowingly soulful voice — you get the heaviest dose of this on the vinyl-bound bonus track Rays, with Inf channeling the spirits of Rick James, Little Richard and Prince. Infinite remains consistently true as an artist and commentator of the external world — he defies boundaries, simple definitions and whatever your expectations you might have. Infinite acknowledges this on "Steaks N Garlic", chanting “Blammo blammo, this shit is so new and fandangled, they can’t handle the way that I cover all angles”. Alberto’s production is a slick, bouncy, layered myriad of synth heavy funk bringing to mind a toxic mash up of Yello meets Tackhead meets the Gap Band. A refreshing blend of carefully crafted maximalism, executed with enough pop sensibility to sound radio friendly without giving up on integrity. All the more surprising considering Alberto’s regular stint as a drummer working with more mainstream acts. In all his production makes for a perfect compliment to Infinite’s unmatched lyrical savvy. Though this is an ep full of acme elasticity and vivid surrealism, we've come a long way since the sexy little ponies and double D chimpanzees of Bush Meat (2004). These guys don’t simply think outside the box, they pick it up, rearrange the components and unfold what was once contained space into an oscillating mutant landscape under a vast sea of drooling crystalline stars — so if you're ready to set sail, hop aboard with LOLIVEZ and go get "LOST @ C".
