Agent O has been on replay in our playlist with his latest remix! Coming across this Chicago electronic music artist through local channels, and his sound is instantly intoxicating. Taking aim at a Chomppa tune called DEVIL DANCE, a tune reminiscent to RENEGADE by Mustard Pimp. Agent O perfectly balances the manic high end sounds with a dirty bassline that you cant help but move your body to. A perfect tune for an end of the year playlist to get a party jumpin’.
Ayoo is back with another great remix to follow up from their Wolfbiter and Saladin remix releases! Picking one of their favorite DJ and producer Virtual Riot. The artist from Germany is a well established name in the electronic music community and more specifically in regards to bass music! He has performed festivals around the world and collaborated with popular names like Modestep, 12th Planet, DirtyPhonics, FuntCase and way more.

Chicago duo Birthdayy Partyy is hitting the hot button with number of releases. Coming in with a couple of collaborations and a VIP track for your bedroom playlist, because we are going no where in this lockdown! Does not mean you cannot WIGGLE, like you can for their collaboration with Wenzday, published on Gold Digger, a perfect song for a night bass style collection. Or you can pick a FIGHT, published on Bite This! with Dirty Chime on that track, you can get your adrenaline pumping as the bass vibrates throughout the track. Birthdayy Partyy’s latest comes as a remake of one of their anthemic bass tracks HOUSE PARTYY, which gets a totally new boiler room energy about it, it is even more addictive with its sound than before.
Ayoo continues with their growth and experimentation with their sound and we are all here for it. We even got a closer idea of who their influences are for their music and sound in an interview with By The Wavs. Both Brothers naming mutiple artists, specific to no genre. From Dr. Fresch, Dom Dolla, AC Slater, Kid Cudi, Bone Thugs, Syn, Habstrakt, Excision and more, you can see why AYOO’s sound seems to be ever changing.
Recently releasing a huge collaboration piece dubbed FREAK OUT, and with a name quite commonly known in the Dubstep community. Rico Act performed and collaborated with acts such as Snails, DirtySnatcha, Sullivan King, Spag Heddy to name a few, and now Chicago’s very own AYOO works with the titan, as Benasis did a couple years earlier. Now this tracks name is to be taken seriously, because the three of them blended hip hop, and mid tempo bass to perfection. AYOO is no stranger to adding hip hop influence or vocals to their records, in fact you can hear the influence in all of their original tracks. This follows their remix of THE WAVE by WOLFBITER, and as you can see, another switch up in style as AYOO get bolder with their sound, what and who they work with.
Chicago is full of talented artist in every direction in every genre. One of Chicago’s most celebrated genres of course is house music; this city is its birthplace after all. It has come a long way since its start and today’s artist of the week Ayoo is a testament to that! Working heavily with bass house production, it is a more intense evolution from Chicago house and Detroit techno music, but the roots are all there and grounded. The two brothers popped into the scene a few years back and it has been non stop hard work, good music and memorable events; the Chicago electronic music duo plans to be on the radar for a while.
Not only some artists on the rise Ayoo also represent a whole bigger collective as well. Founded by Niick Niice the Be Nice Collective is a commnity of electronic house music DJ’s that has a good hold on the Chicago nightlife. Holding residencies at night clubs and bars like El Hefe, Soundbar, Tobacco Road Tap Room, Bottled Blonde and more, they present opportunities for locals to work, collaborate or just enjoy a night out. Ayoo’s ambitions alone backed with Be Nice network holds unlimited potential!
Aside from rockin’ Chicago’s night life dancer floors with their weekly residencies they duo have build a resume up on festivals and special guest events with popular artists. Notable shows include opening for artists like Taiki Nulight, Dogma, Dr. Fresch and Malaa; Tonight Ayoo adds Delta Heavy to the list opening at Chop Shop in Wicker Park. The duo also hit Spring Awakening Music Festival back to back the last couple years and for good reason! They guys not only have the network but they have the sound.
Coming up on more an more recognition as time goes on Ayoo hit yet another milestone this week after officially releasing their hit summer single TIMELINE, featuring RhymSter, under Artist Intelligence Agency. This again presents more opportunities for the duo as their music has the potential to reach more audiences and even more interested labels. Packing with a growing list of bass house originals the duo also make some bold remixes, improving on some timeless tracks like DOO WOP by Lauryn Hill, and LOW LIFE by Future and the Weeknd.
Debuting with their single ORIJINAL last summer they have come along way in their production, their latest release shows the most improvement in quality in their music thus far. This time picking out G4NJ4 by Groove Delight it sounds like Ayoo is really getting comfortable with where they are headed with their music. Time can only tell where these two are headed with their sound and collective. They has brought upon themselves really significant opportunities and They and hit a lot of milestones in a short period of time. I would recommend keeping an eye on this local titans!
This Birthdayy Partyy was one of a surprise! Popping into the Chicago electronic music scene seemingly out of no where, the duo always seem to be where the party is at. They do however have a good history in the local music industry for those that know. You would have luck catching them on the big stage at events like Spring Awakening, headlining popular Chicago venues or opening for big acts like Malaa with a heavy bass house sound growling between every beat. Needless to say they got a good support network and even better ear for music that controls a crowd.
With the music the two would be releasing to their fans it is no wonder they get the recognition they do. Reviving classics like Let Me Love You by Mario, Paramore‘s Misery Business, Gwen Stefani‘s Hollaback Girl and most recently, Jeremih‘s Birthday Sex on a remix collaboration with Goodsex because, well, how can they not? To add to their huge remix discography Birthdayy Partyy’s originals even top those releases if you can believe that.
