When not producing tracks and playing lead guitar for rising dance-friendly indie rock band Misun, Washington, DC area-born but currently Los Angeles-based producer Nacey has a pretty serious track record when it comes to being well-respected in his craft. However, with Angel Haze rapping over his latest production “I Own It,” it might be time to take “rising” away from his name, and officially consider Nacey arrived as an artist and producer of note.
This is a thumping yet radio-friendly party starter, just as suitable for the dance floor as it is for Clear Channel airplay. Haze has worked with an incredible array of indie and underground names in her career-to-date, but there’s something in the nature of the hook of this song sampling “the Alphabet Song” that lends it to being ear-worming for potential fans of all ages and levels of musical awareness. Haze’s outspoken nature being tempered by a production that pulls in a broad array of listeners certainly could make this her breakthrough moment.
