Toronto's own rising rapper and producer Devontée is back again with another solid track "Keeping 6". Proudly representing his crew WOE (Working On Excellence), Devontée has been living up to his motto and has been relentlessly working on his upcoming mixtape District Vibe, which is set to be released later the year. Self produced, the beat starts with an underlying affected vocal that builds up to a rhythmic drop. As the drum fills end, the leader of the WOEs enters with his first verse. Bass heavy with glossy tubular bell loop, and spurts of high hats, the instrumentals is as catchy as the chorus. Lyrically, Devontée is simply documenting his life and experiences. Creating his entire music catalogue, network, company, and team all by himself, he is truly genuine when rapping about his ambitions and goals. A hundred percent real with it and gaining more and more momentum everyday, Devontée is the total package and is becoming serious competition for other Toronto artists.

Reinterpreting the Chillwave genre with a R&B approach, WOE (Working on Excellence) member Jay Glavany releases his second single off his upcoming debut project It's A Beautiful Thing. Produced by his close collaborator Jaiden, the instrumental creates a compelling contrast between the dramatic bass and the atmospheric pads. The combination of the two elements in the instrumentation also reflect what Glavany is trying to express. Portraying the seriousness of his potential commitment and easing the thoughts of any doubt. With a tranquil and easy going beach sunset, the artwork chosen captures Glavany's vision of "Inside" being a track to vibe out too with your significant other and to appreciate the time being spent together.
