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
