A film about Northwest hip-hop from 2014
The BLK EP
Taylar Elizza Beth is one of the most exciting new artists in Seattle right now. I’ve been spinning Taylar’s first release, the seven-track THE BLK EP from 2014. I love the way she plays with time throughout her flow, speeding up and slowing way down and how this parallels verses that nostalgically speak about times gone by and yet to come. She also demonstrates an impressively diverse vocal range, a rap chameleon that morphs from smoky growl to soft whisper, or the arresting moment at the start of “Queenz of Da Beach” when she speaks plainly and vulnerably.
