Solstis is back with new music for Chicago and fans abroad. This time they pull out an original from their playlist. Up until now this past year the duo have been releasing remixes for artists like Luna Shadows and Autolaser w/ PLS&TY and a throwback with Nelly Furtado. This release also makes their first original track with an independent singer/ songwriter. Ally Ahern and Solstis compliment eachothers flow and style with Take Me they just created an instant with ease. With this release a new release maybe a full project can be on its way we will have to see!
Win & Woo from Chicago is known widely for their ambient future bass and house remixes. It is their original collab vocal track Chicago with Bryce Fox that has been buzzing around, donning a remix compilation tape of its own with those daring enough to challenge perfection! Constellation would follow after and most recently Gold, a moombah influenced future bass track with Shaylen on vocals. The artists told Earmilk that they all got along and worked together so compatibly in the studio that the hit came almost overnight.
Then we got their remixes. You cannot go wrong with them even the artists the duo chooses to work on are super talented. Looking at the likes of Big Gigantic, Big Wild, Kaskade, SNBRN to step up to within this past year and they respond! Adding to that list Mokita, Maty Noyes and JP Saxe. Win & Woo have a very good ear when it comes to choosing the right sound that work with theirs. Changing the pace on Goodbye but keeping it melodic dance beat with some vocal chops. Best for last Anybody Else will have you coming back for more. We couldn’t stop ourselves either on the repeat button for this glitch-pop remix we can only let the remix speak for itself.
Doin it again, this New Thing will be echoing in your head until you hit replay. First original following a list of remixes after his EP Visions. His most recent remix he has done was apart of a compilation for DNMO & Sub Urban track Broken. Cofresi paired that one with a video showcasing his live abilities. New Thing similarly is apart of a greater project.
Introducing Cofresi‘s forthcoming EP Faces, New Thing foreshadows the quality of the project. Not only does it announce a new body of work but it is marks a first collaboration with a skilled vocalist; Ehiorobo breaks the cherry. Faces itself will be constisting of 6 total tracks with 6 unique vocalists for each track respectively. Cannot wait to see this creative transformation of style.
Working with frequent collaborator Oliver Tree, Whethan from Chicago created another anthem and a dope beat. Working with many popular artists like Flux Pavilion, Elohim, Max, Ashe and Louis the Child Whethan got ahead in the game quick. With sounds that he is producing its was only inevitable. Enemy itself here sounds like it can go up against a Justice beat with its similar style.
Knox Fortune is ridin high in Paradise with his latest album release. Following up with a short tour around the states that sold out in Chicago in no time at all. Written and produced entirely by Knox with the help of a well known locals Joey Purp, Cam O’bi, Carter Lang, Nico Segal, theMind, and many other notable artists. KAMI and Joey Purp grab the mic for on Strange Days and Stun. Finally finishing off the 11 track epic with some quality production. Most producers dont get enough attention however this is a rare case and Knox has some real support behind him.
You can add Philanthropist to Monte Bookers’ list of accomplishments with his most recent release Silver. Alongside Soulection they are donating proceeds to hurricane and earthquake relief in Central America through Global Giving. It is a very smooth track as most of his are but his style is dynamic and continues to evolve. Cannot go wrong with Monte music. Alway making good beats and now when you bump his tracks you can trust that you support a good artist.
Making the world a better place one beat at a time, Monte has been consistently releasing quality sound nonstop. Working with Smino, Jay2AintShit, Ravyn Lenae and Phoelix has been getting him huge support from artists like T-Pain who joined the Smino-Booker beat Anita. Recent collaborations like Chinchilla and Lui Kang with Jay2 and single releases like Drunk and Yellow + sprinkled all over his soundcloud has gained nearly 75k followers on soundcloud. While most producers go fly under the radar people continue to recognize Monte Bookers sound more and more and with good reason, he gives back real sound and action.
Following his last couple of releases Towkio stays on a hot streak of creativity. Drift and Hot Shit get music videos so he keeps the trend goin with his latest, Swim. Alot of stuff is goin on in this video with the simplist ingredients. As the prelude melodically glides over these visuals Towkio plays with reflections and colors in water as dancers pop in and out of frame. Not only experimenting with visuals but genres as well as the last few releases completely differ from one another. You are hit with a refreshing sound everytime.
Metropolis Blac (middle) and Rhymster (right) are pictured leaving Fort Knox Studio, onto the next location to film. The two Chi town artists begin their collaboration on an EP project forthcoming. Expect a series of releases leading up to Summer Sessionz. Starting with Dum Drunk (I’m Influenced), a laxed hip-hop beat paired with visuals filmed and edited by Brandon Holmes (left). Ginger-Ale and Jameson sets the mood for this party.
The video in itself was a big project and team effort with Monaco Cocktail contributing some of the festivities with their exclusive Vodka bottle just released to the public. Dancers take up the floor as Rhymster and Metro mingle amongst party goers and beautiful woman as the Chicago skyline gleams in the background. Following the shoot on the 55th floor of the Trump Hotel, Artist and Performer Natalia puts on a fire show in a spot off Museum Campus. An epic display to kick off the countdown to the full Summer Sessions project on 2/28/18. Get ready!
Thelonious Martin always keepin it real when it comes to his production. Deep bass and hypnotizing beat work built under a flow of piano keys and synth. Sounds like spirit of these city streets. Recently adding a couple more to his playlist these pay homage to some legends. Most Def with Beef and Sean Price Snow remix get a makeover and does them some real justice.
Aside from his raw and authentic remixes the King has been workin on some collabs with some locals and out of state artists respectively. Swade from the city of Chi threw down some cold verses on a Thelonious beat, one of my favorites, and called that Woman and Liquor. From the Bronx Kemba spits a smooth flow over a beat matches that urban vibe from his home city and crowned that Delivert. Thelonious King stays providing artists and the rest with quality beats so stay with it on his links below.
DNMO and Sub Urban came out with Broken in April, right in the middle of spring. The substance of the song runs quite deep making for a powerful yet woeful tune. Catching the ear of many artists it came to be apart of a remix compilation series. Chicago local Cofresi stands out amongst artists Stratus, Sunday Service and Mintorment in the remixes. Not only representing his brand of future bass constantly evolving but he takes it a step further showcasing his skills with a magnificent video. A live midi drum kit setup published on Run the Trap Youtube channel. Cofresi has many videos like this on his personal channel and incorporates this setup for live audiences. More than an artist he is an entertainer too!
