If there’s one thing for sure, it’s that WEDIDIT Collective consisting of big name producers in Shlohmo, Baauer, RL Grime, and more know how to create music that breaks boundaries and absolutely bangs.
The latest offering from the LA team is the new Cruel Intentions EP with Tory Lanez, who is currently one of the hottest names in rap and R&B.
One of the most exciting things about electronic music at the moment is that it’s not confined to a single sound and producers are able to work with so many different and talented artists from different corners of music. Platforms like SoundCloud have enabled artists who have unique sounds to stand out and get the exposure they so rightly deserve.
The project offers listeners the chance to fully indulge in a new wave of R&B that artists like Lanez, Partynextdoor, and a few others have made so infectious to listen to.
This short EP is all about light airy falsetto vocals that ride smoothly over dark heavy hitting trap beats.
Tory did his thing on all five tracks, providing killer hooks and going in hard on some rap verses. You can’t even confine the sound to a specific genre, it’s just good music that crosses over and takes inspiration from a plethora of genres. Although it’s only five songs deep, the Cruel Intentions EP gives something sweet to hold us over for another WEDIDIT and Tory project.
The producers in WEDIDIT Collective are some of the most diverse electronic artists in the game. Shlohmo for one has been all over the place going from remixing The Weeknd, How to Dress Well, and Young Scooter to doing a whole EP with another R&B singer, Jeremih, while also producing for Banks, and working on solo productions.
RL Grime is one of the most talented trap producers in the game, having racked up millions of plays on Soundcloud from hit remixes like “Skyfall”, “Love Sosa”, “Mercy”, and more. Baauer has been a main stay in the game for a few years now after blowing up from the world wide phenomenon that was “Harlem Shake”. Most recently he has explored more in crossing genres as well having worked with artists like Rae Sremmurd, Fetty Wap, and AlunaGeorge.
Over the past several years there have been more and more electronic producers working with R&B and hip hop artists.
Now more than ever, listeners are more open minded to off-the-wall collaborations.
It’s great to see these young artists like Cashmere Cat, Baauer, RL Grime, Shlohmo, and more branch out into these other sounds – it’s opening up doors and bringing about the potential for more incredible music.
