Welcome back to Streetwise Radio! Holiday season is here again. Time to get together with friends and fam and turn up a lil bit.For those of you who listen to the station you may have heard of the trio of dj/producers called YELLOW CLAW.The group consitsts of Bizzey,Jim Aasgier,and Nizzle.The amsterdam based group is blazing a trail on the trap music scene with hit singles like “love me till it hurts” and “shotgun” using high paced beats and melodic vocals. Yellow claw burst onto the scene in 2010 after hosting and founding The Yellow Claw Thursday nite party at a popular club in Amsterdam. By 2012 they had a few hit singles and became regulars at many dutch festivals ( dirty dutch festival, solarfest). The group successfully blend a multitude of genres onto one track like the track “thunder” which is a masterful blend. After bouncing around a few labels Yellow Claw has chosen the independentroute and is on tour now in Europe. What's amazing to me about the trap music movement is the collaborative nature of it which reminds me of the beginning of hip hop. The beauty of collectivism at its best. Yellow Claw has that upbeat can't stop partying feel that will be sure to keep you up and going all nite. I couldn't imagine being at one of their shows because i would need a change of clothes from the danceathon that would ensue. So if your curious to check out the sound stop by Streetwise Radio to hear Yellow Claw and other trap artists on our playlist.

 I know the title must have you a lil baffled but no i'm not talking about fast women. lol What i am mentioning or should I say who i'm referring to is an English born trap producer named HUCCI. Just like a contract killer his wrath is felt by those he encounters but you cannot find much info about the dj. One thing is for sure his Internet following is immense and he seems to like being the unknown. Hucci uses tons of hip hop samples and vocals to create his airy trap sound. HUCCI varies his tempos so you don't get exhausted from fast paced sounds of a lot of trap producers. the track i'm lovin right now is called “Hitta” which uses r&b and hip hop vocals to lace an 808 heavy track. HUCCI is not afraid to mix up samples mid-song and gracefully navigates from sample to sample. HUCCI’S following patiently wait for internet  drops because there’s not much else to go on. It's easy to see that he has an immense, hip hop love. It flows over most of his tracks.The track entitled ‘PERFECT STORM” is a dope cut that uses a Micheal Jackson vocal to lead the song and I honestly had never before paid that much attention to Mj’s lyrics but the track forced them onto me which was cool to say the least. Stay tuned for more info about HUCCI and drop into our mix at steetwise radio to hear HUCCI and other great trap artists. see ya later.
