Forms: Hwls & Lakim says

Formed in Perth, Australia, HWLS is the style-melding electronic project of Kit Pop. Having a love of bass music, the already established solo producer signed with the Future Classic label in 2014 and quietly released the HWLS EP later that year with then partner Ta-Ku. A diverse, industrial-leaning club set, it appeared with plain gray-and-text artwork and tracks titled "001" through "004." As they continued to experiment with influences, the pair followed it with a number of remixes, including tunes by Hermitude, Tokimonsta, and Death Grips. With a somewhat more colorful cover and sound, EP02 arrived in the spring of 2017.


Hailing from Lynchburg, Virginia, LAKIM has steadily made a name for himself in the electronic scene. Bridging the gap between dance and hip-hop with style and finesse, his sound is an ever-shifting blend of crisp drum patterns, dreamy synths, and lush vocal chops. LAKIM really started to make waves in 2012, when his stellar remixing skills caught the attention of renowned forward-thinking beat collective, Soulection. He is well known for his EP, Esoteric, which he released in 2012 as Soulection’s 15th project. Since then, he has continued to expand and evolve his style over multiple featured releases with the label and successful collaborations with fellow Soulection artists like Mr. Carmack and Esta. He’s turned a song into a movement, been the focus of the first Soulection White Label, and stayed on the tips of tongues with his remixes of popular artists and upcoming producers. LAKIM brings a truly unique sound to the table and his energetic live performance is not one to be missed.
