Whethan Livin The Life Of A Wallflower

Many if not all artists have two sides to them and Whethan bounces between the two effortlessly. You can get either the romantic, or the savage. Through some of his recent releases you can hear amorous music expressed through euphoric synths and harmonious melodies and vocals. Then like Sicko Mode he can flip it on a beat. Coming from Chicago though it is not surprise, we are sweet or sour depending on our surroundings.

To start off the cold seasons Whethan warms you up with some sensual electronic audio. By next summer you will be blasting each song to match those sunny vibes. His EP Life of a Wallflower Vol. 1 is flawless piece by piece from the production to the featured talent to the atmosphere. With acts like HONNE, Bipolar Sunshine, Mascolo, Oh Wonder and Broods you are getting Top Shelf music that will make some Good Nights. Then suddenly out of nowhere Whethan goes Sicko Mode and takes Skrillex‘s remix, that helped put Travis Scott‘s track on the map of Billboards top 100, and gives it a bit more attitude. But its no surprise what he can handle working with artists like Opia, Oliver Tree, Flux Pavilion and Louis the Child.

Elevatd Treats

What an Elevatd year thus far for the Chicago duo. After rebranding and releasing a Curse there has been more blessings than anything.  From picking up shows in and out of state to playing festivals like Lost Lands, 515 Alive Fest, and Spring Awakening and even going viral getting style points from Bassnectar, the momentum continues to build for this heavy bass duo. Not only has their fan-base, connections and rapport been growing, so has their playlist with new originals and remixes.

Elevatd seems to have an exclusive track on deck for any event whether it is playing with their favorite artists or just special occasions. Playing with Boombox Cartel recently they remixed their ID track that features Flosstradamus, another idol for the duo as well. Alongside RL Grime at a North Coast After Party they got a beat for that. Flashback to a Zeds Dead and Jauz remix ealier in the year you see them now playing with the Canadian dubstep icons at theMID as well for a Dead Beats after party. And if you did not get candy this Halloween you get treated with Trick or Yeet, a dark n heavy tune for your goodie bag.

Whether it be a case of manifestation or just straight up power moves like joining MnifestMGMT, Elevatd keeps raising the bar! You just know they have some unreleased beats hiding away waiting for the perfect moment to be heard. But for now you have to check them out at their events to hear that exclusive. Follow them on their social medias linked below to find out where you can see them next.

A CODA of Cofresi

Cofresi is back in the headlines and making some noise with a big release! Though he has not been all too quiet either! Following his Daft Punk remix and Led Zeppelin teaser Cofresh popped out a couple more tracks before hyping up an EP! Still coming off the vocal vibes from his Faces EP Jofred was invited onto Caution to make a jazzy future bass original. Unable to hold himself from adding another remix to his collection he follows up with a rework of Sable by Edamame as part of a remix album of BASK.

Bringing it back to the moment, we have five more new tracks to listen to collectively known as CODA. His last EP Faces focused around different styles of vocals in each track. CODA comes back to focus on ethereal synths, energetic drum patterns and dark basslines. But you will hear some vocal samples throughout the EP and a feature by Calid B on the outro track Crown; so some Faces influence remains! Altogether this project is the complete set of Cofresi’s production and experience and experiments up to this point; A concluding section, a coda, to foreshadow a new? Catch him on his release tour dropping these new tunes in random cities and festivals!

Solstis Beyond Creative in Youth

Milestones are something to look forward to for anyone out there setting goals as an artist or individual. Musically Solstis has been surpassing many feats within the last year alone! Every release they published not only sounds amazing but has some connotation to them. Following this duo for a couple years now it has been inspiring to seeing how they have been evolving through sound and technique.

Recently taking Luna Shadows music another go, already giving her track Cry Wolf a remix with SANDS, the two found a greater idea to incorporate into a remix. The plan is use more live music instrumentation into their sets and they nailed it. Exploring different styles they landed on indie rock marking their first time to include a guitar solo. This track in particular is meant to be played in a live format. Making their music exclusive to their live sets now this sets them apart from many EDM artists, thinking outside the box in terms of technique and range of sounds for their performances.

This remix follows yet another milestone in their career with the release of their debut album Nowhere. This project is a collection of the finest sounds and a wide range of emotion. Over a years worth of work and imagination put into this LP the opening track, inspired by Smashing Pumpings and 90’s Rock, sets the mood for the LP with a epic buildup. Acquiring the melody from ODDEEO before the inception of the idea of an LP, who also collabed on Robot Daydream years back, Dreaming in Reverse is a climactic build leading to a Euphoric melody that gives a breath of fresh air before the next beat Open Your Eyes blows you away. This kind of production has been pivitol in their position with music and something to be excited about as far as newer music if you have not followed them it is about time!

Krewella Stuck In Your Head Like Bad Liars

Some can use it to their advantage, some people give it away, lying is not for everyone. Krewella plays on that idea with a vocal performance in Bad Liar, a smooth synth and bass beat that flows flawlessly between the lyrics. This follows Gold Wings a collaborative production with Shaun Frank, another future bass beat topped with a beautiful vocalization by Krewella. Steady releasing tunes this year we expect to hear some more from this Chicago Krew.

Cofresi is Better, Faster, Stronger!

Is it possible to go Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger than Daft Punk? Few dare try and succeed but Cofresi decides to takes up the challenge for himself. With a live midi drum-set setup, he certainly has the resources to match the virtuosity of the legends! Armed with a camera he proves with a live performance that he can indeed pull off a Daft Punk remix with ease and style. Not only unique with his production and execution the man thinks outside the box when it comes to his originals and remixes.

Maybe its to keep challenging himself to other genres or it could be boredom but Cofresi has become a master at these revisions. Not only perfecting a Daft Punk remix, he takes it one step further and challenges some of the gods of Rock N’ Roll, Led Zeppelin, to remix Black Dog. Then upon listening to the beat it was deemed holy for it sounds sanctimonious! After remixing James Black & Bon Iver, Alina Barz & Galimatias,DNMO & Sub Urban, Imogen Heap, Dillon Francis & NGHTMRE and way more, Cofresi has shown time and time again that his passion is unparalleled.

An impressive progression following the release of his EP Faces. Knowing just how to keep his playlist fresh with new music. His EP consisting of 5 tracks is in diligence with vocalists. Each track works with vocalists of different styles from ProbcauseMarcus AllenJofred, Cathy P & Riles and Ehiorobo. Cofresi works around hip hop, experimental, soul and pop vocal styles and lays down a foundation of live future bass production that hits the speakers hard and gracefully. A true mastery in both originals and remixes, this is one act you have to follow.

New Deem Music To Quench Your Thirst

Since his Third Eye opened Deem has been staying busy with a few projects. Having followed up with a music video for I’m Lownt from the Third Eye EP, he has topped that with another new beat and music video. Aside from working on new music Deem has also been working hard on 106&Clark with Roy French. Together they have been doing a great job spotlighting talented local artists making waves in Chicago. Well into their 2nd season they have interviewed artists like Rich Jones, DJ Skoli, Mani Jurdan, Gxxdstress, Ace Da Vinci and even us here at Ever Evolved.

If you seen Deem live you would know he is quite the interesting dude, not a dull figure at all! Thirsty would be familiar with those loyal fans who have seen the live performance which is equally as entertaining as the recently released video one would say. Music produced by Skeezus the video shot and edited by Gian Frias also featuring artist manager and model at Ever Evolved Ashley George. These cats can probably pull off acting on the big screen, but for now this is what you got and more if you follow the man and catch him live!

Machobeatz – They Love Me (Not)

A single artist can have multiple beats ready at one time, but sometimes the public is not ready! So they release them periodically, when the moment is right. Producer from Chicago Machobeatz releases some music that has us on the edge for more.  Rockin with a streak last summer with a Pillow Talk remix, tracks AYYE & BOI following his DOVGHNVTS LP release we know he is sitting on some fire. His latest on soundcloud They Love Me (Not) reminds you of that. With work released on Chicago artist Adot‘s project Midnightt recently among other producers from the GOAT Haus studio at Fortknox, it only means more music to uncover! You can can find some of his more exclusive work on Traktrain here.

Ever Evolved Synergy

Reminiscing back to Show N Love at Sub T in Wicker Park you have to be reminded of the talent brewing in Ever Evolved Studio. Plenty of recent releases and events coming and going. A couple of independent singles and a wild collab track. We also had our buddy and talented videographer Brandon Holmes put together a highlight video of some successful events and celebrations, holding only a little bit of an idea of whats to come!

The video would be covering bits of footage from up to three events, recorded by Brandon and Canon Montana, showing the vibrant crowds that come to support. Background music is produced and recorded in house as well with the producers and hip hop artists and Ever Evolved members on stage and on screen, Rhymster and Radcliff. Engineers Gridlock Andy and Frekwenzy showing love at the studio with amazing produciton.

Most recently a project packed with Ever Evolved artists and affiliates release a single Check A Bagg produced by DJ Marskiss. Rhymster, Radcliff, Terry Tertiary, Candy Irene, Mike Booth, Safe G and Essse with the huge collaboration and a mouthful ofwords onto a 3 minute beat. A unique blend of styles between all these creatives. Interesting enough all these artists are scheduled to release more independent singles and collaboration projects and singles heading into the warmer seasons so follow for updates!
