Soulection and HGMNY team up for an evening of forward thinking music.
LAKIM (SF DEBUT)
"Multi-genre producer born and radummyised in Lynchburg, Virginia whose personal motto reads: “keep it simple”, is a part of the storied Soulection crew. Well known for his EP Esoteric, which dropped in summer 2012, the twentysomething year old has collaborations with other stellar artists like Sango and Mr. Carmack as well as various remixes of premium artists such as Erykah Badu, Kanye West, and Frank Ocean range from electronic chillwaved dance to spacey yet refined hip-hop. "
WALDO (SF DEBUT)
"This man hails from Grand Rapids, MI and was undeniably put to our attention by our very own Sango. We remember when Sango first mentioned Waldo to us and told us that this dude was the truth. Of course we took his word, but how many great upcoming MC's do you really know? It wasn't until Sango sent us [Soulection] 'Poison' and 'Scars' that we realized there was someone and something much more than just another MC, another artist, and another release. We knew Waldo was special and that we had to connect our platform to his mind and Sango's production. Here we are today a few months down the line and happier than ever to be able to provide you one of the illest releases this year. Keep in mind that Waldo is only 20 years old. He has so much potential to evolve into that Man that we hear in him at this very moment. The future is infinite for him."
