LIZ Y2K, a champion of ‘underground Pop’ has returned to the limelight today with the release of her new single “Super Duper Nova”, the single is a classic example of unique and remarkable talent from the unapologetically Pop princess. The single was written with Jesse Saint John and Sarah Hudson, as well as Liz herself, and owes production credits to Big Taste.
The single comes in the wake of double a-side “Could U Love Me” prod. by ARNOLD and Hoodboi, and the addictive “Queen of Me”, prod. by Wave Racer – an ode to loving yourself first and foremost.
Previously named as The First Lady of Mad Decent, Diplo’s sprawling EDM empire, smart, stylish LIZ—like her seminal influence Madonna before her—offers just as much pulse as pomp in her riveting brand of joyful dance-music. There’s something ‘real’ about all her stylistic incarnations—mixing future-kitsch + R&B and ’90s/00s influences with an inspiring sense of can-do artistry that fuses this funky girl next door into pop’s newest come-as-you-are culture icon.
LIZ Y2K continues to blossom as one of pop music’s incandescent lights, possessing the ability to turn the page and embrace pop’s guilty excesses without ever seeming contrived. Her single “When I Rule the World” is a hyper-pop primer of sorts, produced by PC Music affiliate/movement phenom SOPHIE. Samsung even embraced the song in their ad for the Samsung Galaxy, flacking an eye-and-ear-popping mobile future that fits right in with LIZ’s tongue-in-cheek take on autocratic self-empowerment.
Known as a first-rate songwriting collaborator, her Mad Decent roots have enabled her to connect with some of dance music’s most forward thinking producers and writers. Touring stints with Charli XCX and Mad Decent Block Party also exercised her live chops.
Fresh off her self-released, critically acclaimed “Cross Your Heart” mixtape, (the audio component to an editorial project with Nicola Formichetti’s NICOPANDA), LIZ is currently working with top pop songwriters such as Sarah Hudson and Jesse Saint John on an exciting new pop sound for 2018.
