Introducing London’s newest kid on the block LZee, a 16 year old Londoner born and raised. With a now rich and bountiful archive of UK music to pull from, the culture has prepared a strong foundation for this talented artist to emerge from. LZee’s mixtape titled ‘L4zy Town’ is a Kaleidoscope of eclectic sounds flowing from, laid back chill vibes to lightly jazz-influenced tracks. The ‘Colourful Stoner’ produced an exciting and radio ready mixtape that invites its listeners into LZee’s playground, where his lyrical playfulness and boisterous delivery is impressive.
