When you hear about the A$AP Mob, the Save Money crew, Odd Future, or TDE, familiar names like A$AP Rocky, Chance the Rapper, Earl Sweatshirt, and ScHoolboy Q probably come to mind. Time to shed some light on the more lowkey members of the crews that might as well be running things at the moment.
So, I don’t know about you, but my goodness I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me. In some attempt to try to make this week a little easier on all of us, I’ve compiled a few tracks you can play one after the other on some incredible journey against the oppressive forces of knowledge. Shall we begin?
“this video was borne from a dream i had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was queen. i dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. and of this world, i dreamt about tests that didn’t need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger. enjoy xx” – Lorde

Yo, my name’s Austin and this is my first of many playlists for WLE. Each of these songs have been part of the soundtrack to my Thanksgiving break, and they’ve been in heavy rotation as I’ve cruised around Los Angeles. You’ll find everything from Chicago hip-hop to drugged-out R&B to indie pop. Keep it locked and listen straight through, or check the song descriptions and find what you like. Enjoy.
Gearing up for Because the Internet’s release, Bino’s slowly starting to roll out new material. “Telegraph Ave.” is relaxed as ever without completely falling into a Drake-y sob session. Too mellow for you? Ta-ku’s got you with the remix.
I gotta admit, I’m pretty excited to post the incredibly dreamy creations of Joe and Roi from Garden City Movement (BLDG5 Records). GCM has staked off their own corner in electronic music that alludes to the more dreamy and trance-inducing qualities that the genre has to offer – you don’t want to miss this.
Now don’t call me crazy, but I’m going to infuse your life with a little ‘Maths Time Joy’. No.
This is not some optimistic mathematical state of mind. It’s 22 year-old London based ‘Tim Worthington’ producing some incredible ambient tracks that flow in mish and mash of directions. I would advise you to pay special attention to Drowning Butterflies. At the beginning, it has this amazingly soft chime-like accompaniment paired with a strong male vocal to create an ethereal dream-like scape. Best part though? Definitely at 3:00, you’ll hear it.
Rejjie spins dark tales over an eerily bright music box of a beat. Kid is rapping in forests and grocery stores, strictly rocking Huaraches and a North Face in a video so low res it belongs on VHS. Download the Rejovich EP here.
As a little introduction, the name’s Jared and I’m making it my duty to show you some of the most soothing and enlightening chillwave, electronic, and experimental music permeating the world of cyberspace.
Everyone just take a breath, sit back, and enjoy these incredibly smooth male vocals. Brisbane Producer ‘Jordan Burns’ definitely did ‘Sons et al.’ a favor with this production, both names to remember.
