Premiere: Rossemberg Maza – Eat It Too (Cake)
Rossemberg Maza is multi-instrumentalist, six-language-speaking musician.
He lives, works, and makes music out of London, with regular visits to his native Mexico where he had two Billboard hits before he even turned 18. Inspired by a variety of genres and cultures, Maza is weaving himself a long-lasting career in music. Though he refrains from putting himself in any one genre – saying “I just simply love music” – his upcoming album ‘A Bad Guy’ includes bossa nova, funk-pop, disco, and R&B, to name a few. Maza lives outside of his comfort zone and pushes himself to constantly learn and grow. Its been three years since his last album, and he describes his progress in this time as exponential. Keep your ears out; Maza is one to listen for.
‘Eat It Too (Cake)’ is taken from the forthcoming album ‘A Bad Guy’. This is a concept album derived from Rossemberg Maza’s experiences so far – that span multiple continents, six languages, and two previous Billboard hits. Maza explores the possibility of himself being, as he describes it, ‘the bad guy’ (and I’m sure we’ve all considered that in ourselves from time to time). A mixture of Mexican bravado and English elegance, ‘A Bad Guy’ spans genres from disco to R&B, with tastes of bossa nova and funk-pop along the way; rather than neatly fitting into one genre, Maza has created his own multi-genre collection.
The global influence in ‘A Bad Guy’ comes from more than just Maza’s experiences: over ten different nationalities were involved in the making of the album and it was written all over the world. ‘A Bad Guy’ is of exceptional sonic quality too. Most of it was recorded live and worked on by the music industry’s elite – like Grammy-nominated engineer Johannes Raassina (Justin Bieber, Fergie) and Grammy-winning mix engineer Dave Pensado (Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson).
Maza’s goal with this album is to take listeners away from their real lives; to make them forget about their problems and just get lost in the music like he does. There are so many layers to ‘A Bad Guy’ for anyone willing to read between the lines and connect the dots. Maza has sought inspiration from, quite literally, all over the world to bring it to you.
