Upcoming Manchester artist GZ Tian is only 19, but has shown extreme musical maturity on his debut EP Another Artist.

The 14 track mixtape at base level fuses enticing Chinese sonics with moody trap, but when we venture deeper into the tape, we find jazz, UK rap and rock mixed into the gumbo of sounds that GZ Tian stirs up. Speaking on the project, he tells us, “‘Another Artist’, for me, is about standing out for what you are. It serves as an introduction to me musically. There are no features and most of the songs are produced or co-produced by me. As artists, everyone thinks they are unique and the one thing that connects us, is the one thing which makes us all feel separate. This interested me and led me to make an EP which I created without much thought of commercial hits or chart songs. Instead, they’re just songs that I would want to listen to if I heard about a kid coming up who makes music”.
