WholeTeam – WholeTeam 3

WholeTeam is a production collective native to Chicago which consists of young producers Mojek, Billa, A Billion Young, Timmy V, Zookeepa, Morimoto, and about 7 other up and coming artists who have all been woking overtime on new music! This year already we’ve gotten a release from Mojek with his “World of Mojek” EP and are looking forward to a Zookeepa release in mid May! Late last year, Morimoto and Billa both dropped projects that are growing in listens daily on soundcloud and today, the Team is giving us their freshest project which is a compilation of tracks featuring a little more than half of the collective. Though WholeTeam stays diverse in their exploration of responsive sounds, one thing that continually stays consistent is their love for dance. On their newest compilation “WholeTeam 3” the boys give us a little juke, a little house and move through more elusive rhythms that fluctuate through each artist’s interpretation of groove. It’s really amazing watching so much talent grow right before our eyes and as these Chicago artists continue to grow and hone their craft, we’re going to see yet another explosion and hopefully expansion into the beauty which is collaboration.

Lil Bibby – If He Find Out (Yo No Sé Edit)

If you didn’t hear Lil Bibby’s newest mixtape when it came out, you don’t even have to worry now, because I have a remix to share with you that’s even better than listening to the whole tape. Chicago electronic producer Yo No Sé remixed one of the most important songs off the project,  If He Find Out, and it’s the perfect tribute to Lil Bibby’s Free Crack 3.

Yo No Sé turns up Lil Bibby’s *emo*-rap track and gives it all kinds of new intricacies. He hones in on the emotional elements of Lil Bibby, and makes If He Find Out a song you want to dance to at the same time. While the finished product has more of a juke vibe, Yo No Sé maintains the sentimental side of the song in his remix.

Yo No Sé is a guy who constantly has several projects in the works. We’re always on the lookout to see if he’ll release one of those to the rest of the world, so stay tuned into his music and see what he comes up with next.

Heavee – The Message

Chicago’s Heavee (formerly Heavee Dee), best known for his joint track with the late great DJ Rashad on FLYLO FM (GTA V), has recently released this stellar juke and footwork tape featuring heavy collaboration from fellow Tek Lifer, Deejay Earl.
