Y’all, I am a sucker for hazy instrumental hip-hop, the kind that blends ambient weirdness with the conventional trappings of the genre. That’s what Tony Wise does here on “demo. ø_ø,” a creamy bopper that twinkles and shimmers on the edge of your consciousness like the best lucid dream. Clocking in at two songs, the biggest negative here is that I want more of this in my life, like DROPXLIFE or Clams Casino on the mildest trip of their lives. This is pure AM Gold, with “chill” as the central thesis, a manifesto against stress and disfunction, a fantasy street where everything is just nice, no fuzz and no worries.
Listen below and taste the rainbow.
