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.

  • We've been bumping this one on repeat for quite a few days now. Los Angeles-based trio Magic Giant just released their new single "Set on Fire" and we just can't get enough.

The catchy tune will stick with you for days as it progresses to a never-ending anthem that you can easily sing along to.  California folk rock that's fun to dance to:...

The Grind

  • Hiding an HIV diagnosis from a sexual partner is an awful thing to do, and can be considered illegal. Hiding an HIV diagnosis from a coworker, on the other hand, is totally fine.  Unless you work in porn or in some needle-sharing emporium, you’re coworker can be left in the dark without consequence. Jenny McCarthy disagrees. McCarthy criticized Sheen on her show Dirty, Sexy Funny on SiriusXM for not disclosing his HIV when she played his love interest on Two And  A Half Men.  I’ve never...
  • West Coast rapper The Game has recently taken to Instagram to identify himself as #MEATPRINTPAPI. This rather disturbing moniker is not nearly as charming as Drake’s #ChampagnePapi that it parodies, but it is accurate. Sometime after Justin Bieber’s nude shot was leaked to the public, The Game decided he needed to step up his own game. As a result, we have #MEATPRINTPAPI. This stunning hashtag adequately describes exactly what these pictures show: imprints of The Game’s huge penis. While the...
  • Moschino and Barbie teamed up to put together highly anticipated collector Moschino Barbie doll which is accompanied by an exclusive eight-piece ready to wear Moschino collection. The best part of this whole shpeel is the ad they put together, which promoted gender-neutrality in toys and an extremely cute boy who pronounces the word "Moschino" just like we would, and throws in a wink that'll make you regret not getting your hands on this collector's piece.    The collection is now sold-out, but...
