It's exciting seeing an artist take complete control over the way they're presented. You're basically watching them curate their own career. Rising UK producer MRWIZE, for example, produces not just his own music but he's also directed the video for "Die", the lead track from his forthcoming debut EP. Citing artists like Portishead, Trent Reznor and Kid Cudi may seem surprising, jarring even, but these disparate sounds merely inform what he does. In the end, MRWIZE's music is much more unique and after listening you quickly realise that it's the spirit of these artists, the individuality, that he's channeled—not just the music. What we're left with is music that, while impressively intricate, is packed full of soul and shows not just his technical prowess, but also his skills as a songwriter.
