Burning Original Moody and minimalist track with left of center female vocals and ad libs make this underground smash that could start to cause major ripples across European coastlines as the temperatures soar in the summer.
The Martin Patino remix beefs up the groove, adding an ‘80’s style electronic bass line underneath more sultry Spanish mutterings from Laura Dayan and busy snyth lines.

8.0 REVIEW ON PITCHFORK
ANGEL HAZE “RESERVATION”
Hip-hop is often suffocated by conversation amongst its fans and personalities that focuses on what popular rap music means for the genre, its culture and its future. Arguably no other genre is as beset by rampant copycatting, trend-hopping, and incestuous collaborations that seem to treat the idea of artistic vision as a luxury instead of a right. On Reservation, Angel Haze shows herself to be the rare rapper who has copped a great deal of contemporary popular hip-hop and R&B and come out the other side as purely herself. The rap world is constantly in a state of flux and worry, but more artists like Angel Haze, and things should turn out alright.
