Since Sky Ferreira, Jessie Malakouti, and Lolene didn’t exactly become the next Britney Spears last year, it’s time to start finding our fave new pop divas of 2012, and there’s no one better to start with than MoXiiE. (Lana Del Rey don’t count — bitch is too famous now).
The unsigned NYC-based singer-songwriter unleashed her exhilarating Jungle Pop EP late last month, and it’s already snatching wigs across the blogosphere with coverage from the likes of MTV and B. Scott.
It’s no surprise that people are creaming their panties over MoXiiE’s wild rhythms, because Jungle Pop is one seriously hawt EP.
For an unsigned artist, MoXiiE landed some pretty big producers for Jungle Pop: There’s Fredro, who worked with Sugababes 2.0, Christina Milian, and the flawless Wonder Girls; urban maestro Reo, who’s helmed hits for Beyonce, Chris Brown, and Lil’ Wayne; and the multi-talented Jay Deasel, whose diverse catalog includes everybody from country superstar Miranda Lambert to K-Poppers like U-Kiss and Lee Hyori.
Like a more top-forty-friendly Santigold, MoXiiE’s mixed twisted tribal beats, big fat bass, Ciroc, and gory synths to create the Jungle Pop sound. To put it simply: Jungle Pop is about as fresh as pop music gets in 2012.
There’s a few places that you pick up MoXiiE’s Jungle Pop EP, but since I’m a Last.fm addict, I’m going to recommend that you either pick it up over at the music-based social network for free. or fork out a few bucks and support unsigned talent by copping it on iTunes. You can also grab it over at MoXiiE’s official website, which has links to a bunch of other essential MoXiiE-related ish.
2012 = Year of Jungle Pop and year of me finally getting laid after a bizarrely long drought of sexual inactivity!
