Title: Roaches EP
Artist: Celestial Trax and Rozay Labeija
Label: Loveless Records/Materia
Release: 25th November 2016
Roaches, the second release on Loveless Records new club imprint Materia, is a collaborative EP between Rozay LaBeija and Celestral Trax, and is a call to arms for femininity and sisterhood; the battle for powerful expression amidst social constructs. With special guest verses from the likes of Dai Burger and Keijaun Thomas, the new EP represents the future of hip-hop. The aggressive anthems pair Rozay's ferocious ballroom-inflected vocals with the complex beats of Brooklyn-based Celestrial Trax. "It's a prison pipeline, gotta beat the odds / I made it past twenty one, n*gga I'm a God," Rozay chants in solidarity, empowering his sisters who are fighting to stay alive.
