Sarah Tudzin aka illuminati hotties has had a tough couple of years as she wrestled free of the contract with her corrupt former label, releasing the visceral Free I.H mixtape in the process. Now standing proudly on her own, she’s moving forward with her own label Snack Shack Tracks, through Hopeless Records, saying:
“With everything that has brought me to where I am, I knew that the next time around I needed to seek support from folks who trusted me – who believed not only in illuminati hotties, but also in myself, and my curative vision as a creator at large. Hopeless is the perfect collaborator for IH and beyond. I am thrilled, grateful, and looking forward to an expansive future for the music that we’re all total nerds about!”
The first track shared through Snack Shack Tracks is “MMMOOOAAAAAYAYA” – which could just be an expression of her cathartic excitement at getting her artistic freedom back. That effusiveness comes spewing out in the song itself, which is a thumping and erratic rocker where Tudzin is her signature in-your-face self: “you think I’m interesting don’t you? / think I’m fascinating won’t you?” she begins. She goes on to rasp about stealing drugs from a shaman and other capitalistic ventures, but just when her fury seems to be at boiling point, she pulls a back like Joe Pesci in Goodfellas, as if she’s been yanking our chains the entire time – or has she? Either way, she keeps us on this knife edge as she guides the song into a fun-filled finale.
