Rising trio Planet Giza take us into adventure with their brand new EP “Don’t Throw Rocks At The Moon“
The new EP from the hip-hop trio was co-produced by frequent collaborator GMF. Opening with the slick, funk-drenched ‘Icarus’, the track is an ode to the pitfalls of a fast-paced lifestyle. Next up is the group’s recent bass-heavy single ‘When The Moving Stops’. Underpinned by the soaring vocals of Planet Giza’s own Tony Stone, the track has enjoyed support from Jack Saunders, DJ Target and Jamz Supernova of BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra respectively, as well as support from Apple Music and Kiss Fresh.
‘Start Over’ and ‘Limb’ then see the trio demonstrate their soulful side before lead track ‘Rocky Road’, featuring Boston-born rapper Cousin Stizz, channels a deep, emotive trap vibe which was co-produced by FREAKEY. Closing things out, ‘Why Do You Run’ combines the smoothest of production with poignant lyricism.
Planet Giza shares about the new EP, “DTRATM is a small trip into the nightlife. This body of work takes us through the emotions one may experience when dealing with a lifestyle most consider fast paced. Several realizations are made and lessons are learned after colliding with the moon,” Planet Giza explain. “Ultimately we realize that the cycle never changes. The moon remains even after you’re gone. Trying to control it only ends up consuming you. So you shouldn’t throw rocks at it.”
Since the release of Added Sugar, Planet Giza have performed at Montreal Jazz Festival, collaborated with Mick Jenkins while also producing GoldLink’s ‘Ridd‘, which he performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
A bold, coming-of-age EP, Don’t Throw Rocks At The Moon captures the essence of the Planet Giza sound.
