Kittens just came through with her debut solo project, a two-track EP entitled Zanan & On. The Fools Gold Records release showcases the LA producer’s impressive production chops, whether it be on the smooth rap single “To Light” featuring Flipp Dinero & Kollision or the more hectic trap-flavored “Zanan & On” title track. If that wasn’t enough, the EP also boasts a powerful message about female empowerment and Kittens’ own personal journey behind writing the music. Stream & download Zanan & On below and read what Kittens herself says about the project as well.
Kittens – Zanan & On | Download
This project feels like I’m finally walking through a door I opened many years ago. I was so scared and full of self doubt to let myself just make something and share it and own it. Which is partially my own neurosis but was also reinforced by societal obstacles I let be projected on me. I feel like now I’m really able to show my love for electronic sounds, ethnic vibes, and hip-hop influences all in these couple tracks so I’m just super excited to share.Zanan means “women/womankind” in Farsi and was also the ONLY women’s magazine in Iran (which the government sadly shut down). So Zanan & On to me is kind of like…a more inclusive version of “The Future Is Female” meant to empower women and other people who feel they don’t belong. To see doors and windows and walk through them with confidence instead of letting doubt hold them back. -Kittens
