Dizzy Fae - NO GMO Mixtape
Hailing from the mean streets of Minneapolis, Dizzy Fae has released her second project titled, NO GMO Mixtape. Fae brands herself as a âpopâ artist, but this album combines elements of R&B and electronic music to form tracks that could populate a genre of their own. Wonky, dark, heavily-processed production on songs like Company, Huu R Uu, Solo, and Now Nâ Later is contrasted by light and airy tracks with dreamy vocal chops and synths, like in Lifestyle and Gut Talk. At points, the album has a nostalgic and retro feel, with 80âs-style synthesizers populating much of the instrumentation. The album doesnât shy away from an analog sound, however, with beautiful acoustic sounds making up the roster on tracks like Pink. Every track is a surprise, and no two songs sound similar. If broken down, this albumâs contents would be just as comfortable in a DJâs set at an underground club as they would in a coffe-house R&B performance. This might be my only âcomplaintâ with this album - the fact that there isnât much cohesiveness with the project & it seems disjointed at times. Still a good album nonetheless, and I look forward to more from Dizzy Fae.

"Outside of the working world, music is something I invest a lot of time in, in more ways than one. I could spend hours on my SoundCloud timeline, Apple Music, or YouTube discovering new artists to listen to and enjoy. I have channeled this love into brief music reviews that can be found in the appropriate part of this website, and more recently, the First State Studios website. I have also begun to produce music myself, learning the ins and outs of Ableton, Serum, Audacity, and other necessary software, and it still remains one of my favorite ways to spend my free time. It has sparked a love for learning new technologies and software and is something I hope to continue to grow with. I feel that my lifelong interest in the technical side of creative arts combined with my newfound analytical knowledge combine perfectly to serve me well in the marketing and advertising realm."
