Azizzi Romeo Taps Into Romance & Emotions On The “Catharsis EP”


Love is something special, isn’t it? History has shown us many episodes where love has affected humans in ways. For upcoming Recording Artist/Producer Azizzi Romeo, the idea of romance has prompted him to make music about it. From making one song soon turned into multiple tracks, and today we get to see it in a project form called the “Catharsis EP“.

Consisting of 7 tracks, Azizzi Romeo’s “Catharsis EP” was released through Charmax Music (owned by his father, the legendary Max Romeo). “Catharsis” refers to the process of releasing strong or repressed emotions, and Azizzi utilizes the action to its fullest throughout the EP. He shares a story of romance, with each chapter being an emotional episode. “I wanted to create something romantic. And I also wanted it to be honest.” Azizzi shares. “I ended up pouring out my emotions on some of the tracks. Midway through the creative process, I realized I was purging myself of the past, my mind had become as light as a feather. I had confronted my inner demons and subjugated them. So I decided to name the project ‘Catharsis’.” The production featured on the “Catharsis EP” taps into AfroPop, Dancehall, Reggae, Hip Hop, and R&B sounds, and provides great backdrops to Azizzi’s smooth vocals, and unique lyrics. The “Catharsis EP” is the follow up to his “Reggae Royalty EP“, which was released in 2020.
