Big Wild Kodak To Graph

Venice Beach producer Big Wild who we just heard on his amazing original "Aftergold" released via ODESZA's new artist collective, has taken on "IAMANTHEM" from rising fellow west coast producer Kodak to Graph's new album Isa. Big Wild has already built his own signature sound fusing hip-hop, jazz and future bass all into one for a perfect combination and that's exactly what he's done today. He has completely stripped the elements from the original and has turned this remix into a beast of its own with a new melody, piano lines, heavy hitting drums and two different drops that have very different feelings. Stream the song below and grab a free download when it drops in May. Enjoy

Towkio Kaytranada Reflection

The Chicago rap scene has recently produced some of the biggest young rappers with Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa, and this Iconic hip-hop city shows no signs of slowing down. Towkio is a part of Vic Mensa's Savemoney crew and recently impressed us with his tracks “Heaven Only Knows" alongside Chance & Lido and "Involved" with Kaytranada & Vic Mensa.

The eclectic Montreal producer Kaytranada continues his streak of flawless hip hop collaborations as he seems incapable of creating a bad beat. This pleasant new track further proves these two artists create magic when they team up as the beat builds with a steady kick drum and kicks into full gear with a fresh bouncing baseline and refreshing synth progression to make a perfect foundation for the strained crooning vocals. This fresh tune will surely get you in a dancing mood so stay tuned for the mixtape due on the 28th as we are excited to hear it. Enjoy!
