Miso Extra dances between Japanese and English on ‘1013’

Words: Dylan Murphy

Get familiar with the London-based singer and rapper ahead of her debut EP Great Taste.

Despite only having two releases under her belt, Miso Extra is making a splash with her original and multilingual take on rap. Having released the bubbling ‘Adventures of Tricky N Duke’ earlier this year, the rising upstart has come through with ‘1013′, a winding track that’s accordion sounds shares creative DNA with the late MF DOOM’s eponymous track.

Slaloming between both Japanese and English, her second release has an increased dose of mysticism and showcases the versatility of an artist that’s just getting started.

Having been brought up on a diet of anime, Bend It Like Beckham and old-skool hip-hop, it’s no suprise that with such an eclectic mix of interests that the word that springs to mind is unpredictable.

Speaking on the track Miso Extra says, “it centres around feeling frustrated and disillusioned in regards to the injustices we face in society, and trying to capture the frustration in finding a voice in a world that is obsessed with their digital self”.

The new tracks lands ahead of her forthcoming debut EP Great Taste and news she’ll be shelling the stage at The Great Escape 2022 and Pitchfork Festival Paris in November this year.
