Minnesota Shares Hard-Hitting New Single “HiLow”


Minnesota is back with one of his heaviest releases to date! Just last month we had the opportunity to premiere the Berkeley-based producer’s impressive 53-track set from the Oregon Eclipse Gathering, and today he’s proving that he has no intentions of slowing down with his latest single, “HiLow.” We’ve been waiting on this one for a while, as Minnesota’s been teasing it for weeks during live performances. Needless to say, we’re very impressed with how it turned out.

“HiLow” is no doubt one of Minnesota’s hardest creations ever. The track guides you in with atmospheric synth melodies, sharp percussion and ominous vocal samples shortly before exploding into a filthy drop. The breakdown alternates between those same otherworldly synths and some downright grimy bass that only deepens with each passing second, all with old school vocal samples mixed in perfectly. Check out the single, which is available for free download, below and enjoy!

Dillon Francis Links With Rising Rapper Yung Pinch For Chill Single “Hello There”

dillon francis hello there

Just when we think Dillon Francis has done it all (including hosting a video series ‘One Deeper Talks,’ serving up all around hilarity with his “Hot Ones” challenge, teaming up with G-Eazy for epic collab “Say Less,” making hysterical cameos in Viceland’s “What Would Diplo Do?”, the list goes on), the 30-year-old producer surprises us once again with his range of production. This time around he recruited rising rapper Yung Pinch for a surprisingly laidback single titled “Hello There.”

Francis has been teasing this one on Snapchat throughout the past few days, and we’re impressed to finally hear how it turned out. Yung Pinch and Francis definitely make a great pair; the bright, buoyant synth melody that dominates the track comes together well with Yung Pinch’s easygoing vocals. Check out the summery single + lyric video below and enjoy!
