Mestozi, a rapper/singer-songwriter/guitarist from the midwest, makes music influenced in anti-imperialist traditions of folk and hip hop, and humbly raps while picking jazz and bluesy folk guitar breaks.

In 2018 he released a series of 3 EPs titled “science fiction, like a book of matches, or a soup spoon”. Stylistically the music was lo-fi and sparse on drums, while pointed lyrics touching on mixed-racial identity, class exploitation and passive American brutality delicately filled the space.

Mestozi is currently working on “PEAK COMMUNICATION”, an LP to be released in summer 2019.
