Toronto’s DATA-X recently released his new single “Trigger”, a wound-up festival banger meant for jumpy college freshmen.
In the midst of joining Roy Woods SayLess tour, TRIPSIXX hits the net with some new music titled ‘Mind Right’.
OVO’s nascent superstar Roy Woods took the stage at Hollywood’s Dirty Laundry to perform songs from his stellar new album, Say Less. When I say he delivered, know that I mean it.
Roy Woods‘ brand UTU (which stands for ‘Unlock the Underground’) asserts its relevance in the streetwear world today for the first time with two limited edition t-shirts influenced by the city’s youth culture which originally manifested in the heart of downtown Toronto. The brand’s first offering of contemporary apparel was showcased in a new Roy Woods-focused editorial starring the UTU young boss himself.
Photographer Dragan Andic and stylist illy headed to Diptych Studio in Toronto where Woods was snapped sporting vintage streetwear-focused pieces from brands like OFF-WHITE, Bape, Gucci, Supreme, Stone Island and Roy’s own UTU label. As the OVO crooner preps to drop his debut Album Say Less, Woods is getting the fashion aspect of his movement rolling by tapping into young upcoming underground talent in the city. Peep the full editorial below.
Brampton, Ontario crooner Roy Woods returns to the blogs with a brand new video for “Instinct” featuring MadeinTYO. The song is off his Nocturnal EP which dropped last year. This is a follow-up to his video “Love You” which took over the internet in April.
OVOSound’s Roy Wood$ with the dance moves is one of the most exciting artists coming out of Canada right now, leading the young generation of musicians.
FRESHMILK LAB is a movement that highlights rare, new and unconventional trends in Fashion, Art & Music. The creative studio provides exposure and a platform for underground artists. “FRESHMILKLAB 001” is the latest offering from the brand. With the multi-talented Odalys at the Creative Director helm (VOGUE, Yeezy Season, i-D, VFILES, The Weeknd, Boiler Room) the studio chose Toronto’s DATA-X to curate their second mix, one that’s sonically in the “Future R&B” genre. No stranger to the sound, he’s played alongside Chase B, Soulection’s Da-P and CYBER69 along with being featured on Hypebeast for his remix work.
To be sure, the mix is filled with rare gems from an underground culture that continues to heavily influence mainstream Hip-Hop, Pop and R&B. Boston’s Che Ecru is first on the mix with “Satisfied,” a fireball of a track with Cardo crushing the instrumental, inevitably setting the mood for a stress-free listening session: Drew Howard & Birthday Boy’s “Benny & Lil’ Ze”and Aidan O’Brien’s unreleased “New Fuzz” form a lush mini-bridge, a nihilistic rev up for a seductive vibe dictated by the rest of the artists that follow: Roy Woods, Derek Wise, Sha Hustle, Majid Jordan, Plaza, TRIPSIXX, Black Atlass and a host of Canadian youth you’ve probably never heard of. Don’t end the mix without a significant other though as seduction takes a sonically deeper turn. Listen above or on Soundcloud.
