Coachella 2011: Since then, protected Mia Rose in 2008, a high school student by day, night club raver - femcee that, like his mentor, who works in the club frenetic electronic beats again, the Jamaican dancehall choreography and bright, eccentric forms so as his clothing and artwork, fans were anxiously awaiting his debut, "! Pop Go Bang!" - Loosen the way post-Interscope Mia, AS
But the waiting continues.
MIA teased e-mail, mass-produced Times staff writer delayed Todd Martens back in 2008 when she noticed that she is responsible for all production Rye Rye, "and I know all his style. I dyed his armor. "
"Rye Rye's record was really clubby, and that’s where I started, and she fits that so well," M.I.A. said in the interview. "Her music has so much energy. I kind of exhaust [her] with that."
Bad news of course is it's three years later and still no “Go! Pop! Bang!” (last release date we heard was spring with new tracks from producers such as Bangladesh, Christian Rich and Pharrell Williams). Good news is Rye, now 20, rewarded her patient fans with her first mixtape, “RYEot powRR,” and got major props for her set at this year's South By Southwest Music festival in Austin, Texas.
The mixtape is a mashup of original tracks like the booming “Witchdoctor” and the hyperactive “Hardcore Art School Girl.” She also puts her Baltimore club spin on Ke$ha’s “We R Who We R,” Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” and Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.” (language alert) – the mixtape’s standout.
