the question of everyone's lips is; where has uffie been? when the diminutive rapper with a filthy flow burst onto the scene in 2006 with her first single 'pop the glock', there was nothing like it. the track was unexpected, fierce, brilliantly ridiculous and ahead of the curve. but three years later, and the 22-year-old floridian now releases her stunning debut 'sex, dreams and denim jeans'. 'sex, dreams and denim jeans' was put together over three years, recorded in various apartments around paris whenever uffie was able to take short-lived breaks from touring. the album has all the hallmarks of the hedonistic club kid who introduced herself with the fearless 'pop the glock' back in 2006, while the influence of feadz and the production hand of beat-and-synths wizard mr ozio are strongly felt over many of the tracks. but there is also a melodic, pop sensibility being explored for the first time. the result can be heard in the likes of title track, 'sex, dreams and denim jeans', which samples lou reed but sees uffie toying with john hughes-esque high school heartbreak, and 'illusion of love', which features the dulcet tones of matte safer (the rapture). another important influence over 'sex, dreams and denim jeans' happened when uffie was introduced to mirwais while recording the album. having worked on madonna albums such as music and confessions on a dance floor, mirwais was perfectly poised to helped nurture uffie's inner pop star. tracks like 'a.d.d suv' (featuring pharrell williams) poke fun at the rap fraternity's obsession with possessions, but at the core of this idiosyncratic album, in which uffie flits from rude girl to sweetheart, is fun.
description from www.roughtrade.com
Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans really should have been released a couple of years ago when Uffie was at the height of her fame. She should have struck while the iron was hot. She’s missed the boat completely now. Ke$ha seems to have replaced her as posh drunk girl that can’t rap.»
