Two insane things just happened last Friday. One, UZ dropped an album. Two, UZ revealed his identity. No it’s not Skrillex or Diplo, or anyone else you might have thought, unless you thought it was the 2x world champion DJ TROUBL.

Now that you know the trap lord UZ is the French DJ champion, we can move on to his LP Layers that dropped on his label Quality Goods Records. This project is major, running twelve songs deep with collaborators including Two Fresh, Elliphant, Axel Boy, Oski, Craze, QUIX and so many more. This collection is some of the best work by UZ, a guy who has been putting out music for years now. Some trap guys can’t seem to keep things fresh as time passes, but UZ really took it to the next level. Before you check out the LP, read through why UZ decided to reveal himself below.

“The anonymity was fun when I started it 5 years ago, but now I feel like there’s too many masked artists and it really has become more of a gimmick than a message. Our motto at the time was to let the music speak by itself and not focus on the artist. It’s still true, but now that I’m a curator and I’m working full-time on my label Quality Goods Records, I need to make myself heard, talk to people face to face, etc.… Also people need to know where I’ve come from and where I’m going – right here, right now. It’s just the beginning of a whole new journey for me and I’m really excited about it.”
