@LilTrixSA Battles His Frustrations With "ZULO" EP


If you pay attention to South African hip hop then I'm sure you must know Lil Trix is one of the new cats to keep an eye on.

The creative efforts and time he put into crafting this new project makes it easy to understand why he's regarded as one to watch out for in SA. Despite little or no financial backing, Trix still made sure he gives his listeners a full body experience with his new project. The EP comes with a fucking digital booklet and sketchbook cuhz. How many times do you see artists on the continent put all that effort into an EP? You barely see that anywhere even. It's easy to tell who's really passionate about this music thing.

The SA artist/producer uses the buzz surrounding his feature as one of HYPE Magazine's 2017 Freshman to release his new EP, ZULO - a name coined from the first two letters of his full name and surname. The 10-track project is somewhat personal as it touches on his frustrations with his day job, college, career and the improvements he has made since parting ways with Blayze Entertainment in 2013.

The project is sololey produced by Trix and features guest appearances from ByLwansta, J.S.K XXVI, Solo, Mikhale Jones and Ckenz Voucal.

Lil Trix says via email: "ZULO is a love story between my dreams and I, and what initially started out as beautiful, always turns sour once you start to realize and experience new things."

What I've heard so far from the EP has been amazing. Stream it in full below.



"The EP's artwork depicts Trix's recurring bunny mascot figuratively struggling with the realistic pet bunny serving as a representation of Trix's real-life conditions due to his desire to fill his career's plate with the little that he can, that to many may seem like nothing. Trix's emptiness in his retail day job is symbolized as the cardboard box as the job's required stocktaking."
