Haywyre gave us a taste of his upcoming LP Two Fold Pt. 2-–which follows up 2014s Two Fold Pt. 1—with a live performance video of "Endlessly" only to continue the hype with the crazy good "Do You Don't You" shortly after that. Both releases had us eager to hear the project in full. Now finally, that day has come. The producer and multi-instrumentalist brings us Two Fold Pt. 2 today via BitTorrent.
In this new age of rabid consumption and shortened attention spans, Haywyre offers a refreshingly cohesive, conceptual album. The project has Haywyre exhibiting his ability to convey a vast array of emotion and styles as he rocks his signature synthesizer almost like a guitar. Though the project delves from deep house tracks like "Impulse" to new age funk jams like "Memory," an overarching spaced-out theme continues throughout. With this incredible 9 track LP, it's safe to say Haywyre is here to stay. Head over to BitTorrent to download the project along with a ton of free goodies. We recommend taking a seat and enjoying this one start to finish.

Wiz khalifa has had a wild start to 2016 so far to say the least, but now that the twitter beefs and drama are over the taylor gang front man is back doing what he does best.

Drake is currently hosting his own OVOSOUND Radio station as he and Oilver El-Khatib takeover Episode 14 alongside fellow OVO rising artist Majid Jordan.
On this episode he’s just unleashed “Summer Sixteen” as the first single off his much anticipated forthcoming album Views From Six, and has just announced we can expect the album this April! The new track is an eerie, trappy hip hop beat that switches up halfway through with a new menacing melody with harder kicking drums while Drake goes hard in some ferocious verses boasting his success and sings he’s “looking for revenge all summer 16.” Stream below and stay tuned for more info on his album.

It’s been a longtime coming for influential beat maker Baauer to deliver a complete body of work after rising to international stardom via the commercial, yet controversial success stemming from “Harlem Shake.”
As one of the leading pioneers to grow from the trap genre, the NYC-native has been meticulously crafting and expanding his production prowess while continuing to set the bar for a new generation of producers and fellow colleagues.
With the release of Baaeur’s debut studio album Aa, the producer plans on taking listeners through a worldwide adventure using each track as a single destination along the way. Keeping that mentality in mind, he has put together a lush flow of instrumental heaters and has laid groundwork for the jaw-dropping vocal features from Pusha T, Future, M.I.A, G-Dragon and others.
The album's release has officially crossed over into the mainstream as of last night when Baauer was the featured music guest on Late Night with Stephan Colbert to debut the new single “Day One” with underground hip-hop act Leikeli47. This fully charged banger showcases the proper amount of kicks and bass slaps for Leikeli47 to pounce her vocals all over the foundation. You can view the live performance below.
For a work of this magnitude, Baauer will follow in the footsteps of Hudson Mohawke and Rustie by presenting this project via LuckyMe Records. The release is scheduled for March 16th and we are looking forward to more news to come over the next few months. Enjoy
