The vibes are at an all time high this Spring! Recently the Chicago music scene has been warming up for a long awaited summer, with its outstanding shows, jaw-dropping line ups, and the overwhelming consistency of new releases from the Windy City’s finest every week.
Today Chicago celebrates as SAVEMONEY ‘s Towkio drops his extremely anticipated debut mixtape/album .Wav Theory.
Incase you forgot the valuable lesson, “you can’t rush perfection” – this 12-track masterpiece will remind you. .Wav Theory is a melting pot consisting of some of the most creative styles and sounds to have come out of Chicago thus far. What’re you looking for today? Something to dance and get down to? Or perhaps a tune to just soak up some Chicago sun and vibe out to? Maybe a track to cruise down city streets and sing along with your friends? Whatever it is you’re feeling today, this mixtape has it all! Usually focused around the melodies and experimenting with sounds, Towkio also reminds us he has no issue laying down some bars. .Wav Theory projects nothing but the happiest and positive of feels, making it clear that this is music for the people. If you’re from the Chicago, this tape should make you feel extremely proud to be a Chicagoan.
As expected in a SAVEMONEY collaborative work of art, the project received grand contributions with features from Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, and Leather Corduroys; musical virtuosos, The Social Experiment, also got in on the fun in “Free Your Mind” featuring Donnie Trumpet.
The city’s need/crave for Wav.Theory dates back to February, when Towkio first gave us a glimpse of what he was cooking up with “Involved” – the Vic Mensa featured track. The hype was then reborn in April leading up to the project’s release, with his two latest drops, “Heaven Only Knows” the Chano featured track, and “Reflection.”
Towkio made a strong, final push for Wav.Theory’s release online when he began to follow fans back on Twitter in exchange for his followers changing their profile pictures to the album/mixtape’s cover art; as if we weren’t anxious enough already!
In response the fans took to Twitter to reiterate their desperation for this long awaited drop! the wait? More than worth it. Let these well crafted tunes speak for themselves.
We kicked off the year with the Leather Corduroys very successful debut project, Season, SAVEMONEY fans are still at the edge of their seats for Chance The Rapper & The Social Experiment’s Surf project, and Vic Mensa is basking in blessings with his recent, sudden signing to Jay Z‘s Roc Nation.
With the whole team carrying this nonstop momentum, is Towkio next up to strike gold and claim yet another victory for the Chi? You tell us. nonetheless, SAVEMONEY is looking like the new face of Chicago.
It’s SAVEMONEY season.
You can catch Towkio at the Metro in Chicago on Saturday May 16th, and at Mad Decent Block Party as the festival makes a stop in Chicago this summer!
