Atlanta's heRobust has been has been on a roll as of late, showing us his ability to transcend genres while remaining true to his own style and lane. In October he brought us the premiere of “Smother Shit”, a boundary pushing trap tune featuring wild sound design and impressive production through out. He then kept the stream of new tracks coming, following up with another equally massive trap/dubstep hybrid “Dirty Work” released earlier this month. Both tracks coming as free downloads!
Now we receive another new one from heRobust as he shifts gears and takes things mid tempo for a twerked out new tune via Mad Decent, appropriately titled “Booty Be Like.” The song features the impressive sound design and creative arrangement we’ve come to expect from heRobust as he combines wonky top end synths with aggressive trap elements and booming bass, switching things up consistently throughout, keeping the song interesting from beginning to end. Listen to it below and enjoy a free download!

Production duo and twin brothers Sherwyn and Kendrick Nichols, aka Two Fresh, have been long time supported on TSIS with their signature blend of hip-hop and electronic styles. A sound they have continued to refine building up to their latest 6-track EP, Torch.
When asked if there was a different approach to this new project, “of course!” the twins replied “the difference between Torch is we came into the project with an understanding of our direction. Our roots has and always will be hip hop, and through experimenting we came to find our sound.“
While the project offers a some more bass centric cuts with “Logos” and “Bandz,” Two Fresh truly embrace their hip-hop sound like never before on Torch with tracks featuring the likes of Joey Purp, Vic Mensa, Curtis Williams, Mac-Miller signed Njomza and more, mentioning that this shift is inspired from the two “just being themselves.”
Perhaps the most stand out track from the EP is the Joey Purp X Vic Mensa collaboration "Still Got It" which seems to be the perfect fit for the sound Two Fesh have gone for on this project as they mention "anytime we visit Chicago we always stop through to work with Joey and the rest of Savemoney.”
Stream the single "Still Got It" below along with "Torch" in full. enjoy!

This release is very unique because is is a collaborative EP with the very unknown singer Santell. It's a step away from the more dance forward productions we've seen from him in the past. Seductive from start to finish, this project is a flirtatious bedroom jam to say the least. Santell drops his sensual R&B lines while Lido makes sure to keep the sultry vibes classy with his clean-cut R&B infused Future styled production. Stream the EP below in full, released through the Mad Decent and Pelican Fly imprints. Enjoy this one with someone else!

The England native's Stooki Sound and TroyBoi offer their first ever collaboration today called "W2L (Welcome To London)." We can't help but notice how perfectly the ode to their hometown encapsulates London's unique feel. And honestly given how well their creation came out, we can't believe this is the first time they've ever gotten together.
Accompanied by sparing and resounding vocals proclaiming, "Welcome to London" duo Stooki Sound and solo act TroyBoi make sure to state their allegience to their country's capital. The release which is available for free, comes brought to you by the Mad Decent label. Hopefully they find a way to get these guys together again soon, because we can't stop bumping this one!
