“Influenced by Biggie Smalls, Deee-Lite, The Beastie Boys and Cyndi Lauper, blue-eyed white boy rapper Cazwell is revamping the infamously homophobic hip-hop genre…”
– i-D

”Just imagine if Biggie Smalls ate Donna Summer for breakfast.” – Cazwell

Few new artists embody the spirit of downtown NYC more completely than Cazwell. A leading figure in the renaissance of New York City nightlife that has taken place over the last five years, Cazwell’s music—a ridiculously fun mix of electrified dance music and old school hip hop—is the perfect example of the new spirit of pop music. At a time when artists like Lady Gaga (for whom Cazwell has performed as an opening act and was featured on her no. 1 hit "Just Dance") are redefining the art and artifice of dance music, Cazwell is finally primed to take center stage.

Having collaborated over the years with a who’s who of downtown New York and abroad— including Amanda Lepore, Larry Tee, Boy George, David Lachapelle, The Ones, Chris Joss, Peppermint, GoodandEvil, Karl Giant and Lost Daze — "Watch My Mouth" is the natural next step for a performer schooled in clubland, pulling together some of Cazwell’s most effortlessly catchy singles and pushing things forward with new tracks perfectly-suited to bring the party. Club bangers like “All Over Your Face” (a raunchy remake of the disco classic by Loose Joints) and the recent viral video sensation “I Seen Beyonce At Burger King” sit nicely next to new party jams like “Tonight” (featuring a sample from the Shannon classic “Give Me Tonight”) and “Get Into It,” a funky fashion-hop duet starring Amanda Lepore. The music embodies the same spirit of fun and goofball experimentation that was the hallmark of artists like M.I.A., Neneh Cherry, Eminem and Deee-lite.

Pop “I Seen Beyonce at Burger King” (free MP3 here and video here) into your boombox and find out why Cazwell’s party is the place to be. You can also check out the video for “All Over Your Facehere.

While recording "Watch My Mouth," Cazwell also has spent the last couple of years traveling the world gigging and making special appearances, soaking up the best beats and making an international slew of new fans. He's performed at Radio City Music Hall as an opening act for Cyndi Lauper True Colors Tour (with 22 drag queen “Rockettes"), at the Dior Homme’s 2008 after-party in Paris with electro upstarts Justice, and has been notoriously hosting outlaw Burger King parties in your city with troublemaker Daniel Nardicio. He also appears on the season finale of the new Logo/VH1 show “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” where he teaches the queens how to rap!
