The Trap laced cut produced by frequent collaborator Stewart Villain continues to discover the sounds of the future they were pursuing in 2013, this time with a fresh outlook and a few more years of work under their belts.
Dave B – ‘The Way’
Seattle’s Dave B drops a stellar new track, “The Way,” produced by Jake one, who once again laces him with a heavily-filtered vocal sample that twinkles below the rapper’s half-sung delivery. His personality-driven style, and subtle melodic strengths are reminiscent of Devin The Dude, but with a younger, more energetic swagger. Dave has more music on the way, so stay tuned if you like what you’re hearing.

Soon after, Biddines hopped on a plane to London to complete their debut full-length, Golden Ticket.
