Ambient Trap: Introducing Wayvee

Ambient Trap: Introducing Wayvee

We can never get enough of 'trap bangers' nowadays, but we believe the future of the molly-infused genre lies in its more delicate and intimate younger sister. She doesn't really have a name (yet), but we've all come across her smoothe and sexy RnB feel mixed onto bass and trap elements. Like many, I like to call her Ambient Trap. Aka The type of shit you'd play trying to get laid after a busy night out (lol).

Taking the genre to the next level of subtle excellence, 20 year-old ambient trap/grime producer Wayvee from Auckland (NZ), currently signed on the Eighth Supply label, delivers that immersing smooth trap flow with consistent caliber; his Soundcloud filled with an underappreciated collection of instrumentals and remixes that'll carry you like a beautiful wave crashing onto an empty shore in slow motion. Pleasing to the ears, soft on the mind.

I apologize for the autoplay, but you've got to give his Candy Swallows EP a listen, released about a month ago. Check out this recent release with similar-sounding Finnish future bass producer Elaksi, Elaksi x Wayvee - 'Does'. Give both the homies a scroll on Soundcloud, you're bound to find your next favorite song. 

Keep up with Wayvee

    You guys have heard of Converse. Of course you have. When I was a kid, I wanted Chuck Taylors so bad that I begged my parents to buy me some. I got fifteen dollar knock-offs at Zellers. It just wasn’t the same. Converse sneakers have this timeless style. They’re a little grungy, but that’s because you’re meant to wear these things into the ground. These aren’t the shoes that sit in your closet and wait for a special occasion. You skate in these shoes. You crowd surf at a rock concert in these...

    Ok so you remember Eminem's iconic hit "Lose Yourself" right? That same hard hitting record that was so influential that it almost was as if we all were that kid sitting on a bus going to a dead end job in a dirty hoodie for the late night shift? Well what if I told you this same record had a rough draft which was just as hard hitting?  A new, well in this case old, demo version of the song that never made it to the final cut back then surfaced recently with the same beat but completely...

    Untiled&Co is makin' waves in the Toronto fashion scene - and if you don't know, now you know. Having said a found farewell to their Queen West flagship, the duo behind Untitled&Co (Chloe Sam McGrath and Cameron Wilson) have opened a new store in Toronto's high-end Yorkville neighbourhood. We decided to pay them a little visit, and get the inside scoop.  What made you want to open your own store and start your own clothing line? I always knew this was what I wanted to do...

    Ok so I’m just going to go ahead and say it. This video is EVERYTHING. The internet has been in a recent state of uproarious laughter over the video that surfaced on Cut Video’s Youtube account the other day. Three innocent and completely willing grandmothers decided to be the guinea pigs of a small social experiment and got high for the first time (was I the only one who suspected Deirdre has totally been down with the ganja before?) in their many decades lived on god’s green Earth....

    Following on from their placing in the DJ Mag Top 100 poll this year, Brazilian dance producer duo Felguk continue riding their wave of success with their latest single "Showtime." To be released through Australian label Vicious Recordings on Monday, this single has all the trademark elements of party-ready production that we have come to expect from the pair.   Opening in fist pumping style, explosive kick drums and thunders of bass move beneath an increasingly catchy melody. Throw...
