NEWS, STUFF I LIKE

En Français: Du hip-hop à la soul, en passant par le jazz et le ragga, son premier album An Exercice on Scalls and balances est d’une essence trip-hop à la Bristolienne. Zion Flex cultive l’éclectisme, au point qu’on pourrait la placer au carrefour des styles d’une Coco Rosie et d’une Keny Arkana croisée à Beth Gibbon.

Poli-artiste… de Bristol, la chanteuse Zion Flex envoute par son charisme de danseuse hip-hop et son flow extraordinaire, mélodieux et très personnel qui alterne un phrasé rythmé et rempli d’émotions avec des phases slow et tranquilles, plus progressives, tirant presque vers le slam.

Encore peu connue sur la scène internationale, elle effectue une véritable percée dans le milieu depuis l’an dernier, avec une participation au Winter Music Conference (Miami, U.S.A), collaboré avec Roots Manuva, une prestation scénique pour le festival Marsatac, tourné clips et interviews.

Venez l’écouter le mardi 22 septembre au polikarpov à 21 heure!

LYRICISM, STUFF I LIKE

Midnight tastes the vibes are eclectic midnight raves the vibes are electric
Standing in the sand pit I just got up I look to my left I look to my right click x2 

And if it’s not banging like a sick track. Smack that back to where it came from
You spit the same tracks and we write songs.

And it’s Hip-Hop so the music violent 
because the streets are violent.
If you don’t like why you buying it into it?
I see you there with your high top chain and your creps.
Wrapped in a noose you can’t accept reject it.
It’s survival of the fittest 
It’s humanation 
And I move on impulse, that’s just instinct 
Strong like ginseng x2
Standing in the ring when the bell rings
He’s my equal x2

(CHORUS) You’re the station and I’m the train 
Green light the signal I must obey
It easy to turn the lights off 
But not easy to put your gloves on x2

Inspired by the high that giving me
And I’m his ultimate x2

Inspired by the high that you’re giving me
Thinking about what we could do in that way you see
My ciphers, my metaphors I break them down 
Bill a zout I settle down second round.
You got my body shaking as were breaking it down.
Into the silent language that’s only for me you to see.
Just want to find a way to get closer to my destination.
Emancipation. 
It’s getting hot and heavy as you slip your hands to my waist. 
Feel my hips as the sway.
And my mind has got to race 
I know I gotta to be in control of this
Got my drink so top it up, now were drinking more booze
I drop a line and then you smile so you think your the dude but

Midnight tastes the vibes are eclectic midnight raves the vibes are electric
Standing in the sand pit I just got up I look to my left I look to my right click x2 

Strong like ginseng 

(CHORUS) You’re the station and I’m the train 
Green light the signal I must obey
It easy to turn the lights off 
But not easy to put your gloves on x2

I see you there with your high top chain and your creps

Wrapped in a noose you can’t accept reject
It’s survival of the fittest 
It’s humanation 
And I move on impulse that’s just instinct 
Strong like ginseng x2
Standing in the ring when the bell rings
He my equal x2

(CHORUS) to fade
