LAZ: Let’s Rock 7″

The fourth release on Detroit’s Animal Rights Records is a low-key party on wax from rapper LAZ and producer Moppy, limited to 200 copies with hand-markered white labels. “Let’s Rock” is no-nonsense boogie funk with guest chorus vocals by Laila Reich and a few partygoers getting down in the background. Nothing too sophisticated here, just joy and good spirits. The B-side, “What!!!”, is sort of a spacey G-funk joint, with more aggressive rapping but still a heavy party vibe, and plenty of warped, bouncy effects. Without a date listed on the sleeve, you could easily uncover this at a record shop somewhere and assume it was an obscure private press from the early ’90s, instead of nearly three decades later, and it sounds just as fresh either way.
