Mizgin Demircan, better known as Mizgin, is a Swedish singer and songwriter. Her promotional single “Get You Off”, mixed by Phil Tan, released in 2014, climbed to #4 on the MTV Top 100 chart, where it stayed for 12 straight weeks. Mizgin, who started singing from the age of 8, comes from a Kurdish family, but was born and raised in Sweden. Her latest single “LA Birthday” was produced by Jankovskiproductions, and feature on Mizgin’s EP “Green treez and other thingz”. The new single captures much of what makes Mizgin so great. She is at her best when she lets her playful sensuality and impassioned vocal meditations slip free, and here her powerful vocal cords holds court in a cool understated measure. It fits this dynamic R&B and dance-pop record that feels neither tenuous nor overwrought, striking about as clever a balance as one can strike in today’s ever-changing music economy.
Mizgin’s quaint accent, supported by the reggae inflected rhythm, is a rare instance of enunciation elevated to art. She manages to sound both classy and sassy, as the overall honesty and earnestness expressed through her voice adds a sense of genuineness to “LA Birthday”.
