She holds the keys to the universe Somewhere in her purse Probably next to the make-up She holds the world in balance All while maintaining the balancing act Of running in those heels (Tryin’ to catch a cab While I'm catching feels) And She ain't too soft to make a grown man cry You lookin’ for trouble with that disrespect She could break you down wit one look See through your lies (Have you shook) Making you second guess coming incorrect She holds the key to the universe Somewhere in her purse Probably next to the makeup Or somewhere under the hot sauce She's something like a boss [Chorus] Divine feminine Nothing less than sublime feminine So aligned genuine feminine Type to stay on my mind feminine The type to stay on my mind Stay on my mind [Chant] Yemoja Yeye omo eja Olokun Oshun (Iyami Aje) [Verse 2] She holds the keys to the universe Somewhere in her purse Probably next to the make up Or somewhere under the lip gloss (You know she like to floss) She’s a complicated melody Not no one’s apostrophe Can’t be claimed She ain’t yours And I can feel a healing waterfall Of energy Flooding over me When I’m around you There’s something so vibrant About you Syncopation in my chest gettin’ violent When I’m around you I’m in tune with the [Chorus] [Chant] [Chorus + Chant] I’d like

about

MMYYKK’s Science EP arrives at a time when the world needs it. The
eponymous title track is about recognising the power and connection
that we all have to the cosmos - and it feels like no coincidence that this body of work arrives in 2021.

The EP balances universal themes with playfulness; asks hard questions relating to accountability and materiality whilst remaining musically cohesive and funky throughout. An exceedingly difficult artist to pigeonhole, MMYYKK (pronounced Mike) works concurrently within the realms of soul, jazz, hip hop, R&B and ambient; his sound equally indebted to his fellow west-coast natives Thundercat and Flying Lotus as it is to synth experimentalists Herbie Hancock and Stevie Wonder.

Whilst MMYYKK operates as the multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, producer & engineer across all 5 tracks, we can still hear the richness of improvisation musical collaboration involved in the making of this record, with numerous cameos from artists in MMYYKK’s adopted hometown of Minneapolis as well as a feature from London’s very own Demae.

The city of Minneapolis, whilst not addressed directly in the lyrics, provided a backdrop like no other whilst this EP was coming together. Being at the epicentre of such a tragedy had a profound effect on the formation of the record... “The City was literally burning...” MMYYKK recalls as he goes on to explain that tackling themes such as police reform, reparations and accountability in his work is his way of taking a stand in the fight for justice.

Despite the grief prevalent in the city, the EP exudes a complex “dopeness”, executed so effortlessly it belies the skill involved in the process - it’s precisely this nonchalant cool that defines what SCIENCE means to the artist. Whilst we can dissect the inspirations and trace the
lineage of this body of work- the result is singular. It’s clear that Mychal Fisher, aka MMYYKK is operating on his own terms, in a lane of his own - and making it look easy.
