Godzilla and Mothra may have given Tokyo a few bumps and bruises over the years, but they ain’t got nothing on Kat Dahlia. On this freshly-minted loosie, the Cuban-American pop buzzmaker threatens major metropolitan areas with imminent annihilation: “We comin’ [to] your city and we Mash It Up.” The Wizard crafts an appropriately hard-hitting beat to back her aggressive bars, layering street-ready piano loops over a relentless drum pattern. Nyanda, an alumnus of reggae fusion crew Brick & Lace, lends her rapid-fire flow to the second verse, and Booth newcomer Black Lion contributes a similarly fast-paced closing 16. As mentioned above, Mash It Up is not part of a larger project, but those feeling it will undoubtedly find more to like on forthcoming EP Seeds, scheduled for independent release next Tuesday, October 8.
