Check out BoatHouse with 'Crowd Go Loose'

BoatHouse brings you nothing but good vibrations on this one.  'Crowd Go Loose' is as smooth as can be thanks to the warm bassline and synth sound.  The vocal keeps it energetic, and together with the hand claps make for an unpredictable dynamic shift.  This one sounds like late nights, or early mornings, and those last few days where summer keeps hanging on...

Towkio comes from Chicago's SaveMoney crew and he's just dropped his latest single and video.  'Hot Shit' is directed by Andre Muir, and it captures Towkio's energy on stage in a way we've never pictured before, but shows how enigmatic an mc he is.  Few can top Towkio live, and with new music on the way there will be no stopping him.  Get 'Hot Shit' here
