‘Alla Prima’ is Angel-Ho’s second release on Hyperdub, following 2019’s ‘Death Becomes Her’ LP.

“Alla Prima” is an Italian term for wet-on-wet oil painting, not leaving layers to dry, embracing the unpredictability of the mix. It can also mean “on first attempt”, which neatly describes the feel of the EP, Angel-Ho’s vocals recorded in one-take freestyles, warped and edited against production duo Bon's wild, atmospheric, 3D arrangements.

The music across these five tracks is a highly experimental and unique take on hip hop which Angel describes as ‘Hip Hop Haute Couture’. The playful cadences and bars are freestyles with frequently changing flows that flip from sex positivity, shaking your ass to queer references, the get down, to the politics of Black Trans Lives Matter and fantasies of luxury and love as well as explorations of trans-mythology.

‘Alla Prima’ is an hallucinatory flow of electronic noise, made to transport you to a higher frequency.
