EP Review Miso Extra - Great Taste4 Stars
An appetising hors d’oeuvre for a main course which, we can only hope, is soon to follow.
Dubbed “umami for for the ears”, ‘Great Taste’ fuses sensuous sexuality with salivating food-lust across a sizzling array of gelatinous bedroom-hip-hop. Glitchy and urbane like a metropolitan streetside studded with neon lights, the electronic beats underlying the collection are just as bright and ebullient as Miso Extra’s rhymes. For every delicious sample (the fruity ‘1013’ bobs and swings to an oh-so-tasteful accordion line), there’s a colourful lyric to match: “Can’t believe it’s not butter / This love’s spread like no other”, from zingy opener ‘Adventures of Tricky and Duke’, ranks among the most memorable. Indeed, it’s in the vocals where the EP shines: Miso concocts a tasty brew that intersperses verses of sticky, sultry rap with sugary anime-inspired melodies. This all-too- brief introduction to the gastronomic wonderland of Miso Extra (no track exceeds the three minute mark), however, offers only an appetising hors d’oeuvre for a main course which, we can only hope, is soon to follow.
Fusing her Japanese and English heritage into her own unique "Misoverse', with only a handful of singles out in the world, Miso Extra is already stepping up as an inspiring new voice.
