KAS – Arizona

The kid KAS has been low key as of late, but that all changed today with the release of a new track titled “Arizona.” The budding southside artist is known for his smooth, tropical sound and “Arizona” fits that mold to a T. Produced by the man himself, this record once again shows off KAS’ duel threat ability, which might be turning into a triple threat if he continues to produce like this. Right on time for the sunny days ahead, “Arizona” should get plenty of air-time in the coming months, check out the song above and keep an eye out for more from KAS.

Allan Kingdom “Lines”

Allan Kingdom is indeed on top of his game. The Twin Cities artist recently released his latest album, Lines, and it doesn’t disappoint. The Northern Gentleman has built up an impressive catalog so far, Lines feels like the embodiment of everything he has given us thus far. Experimental yet calculated, the album is injected with a variety of sounds, at times it feels a little disjointed, but each song shows just how versatile Allan has grown to be. Some of our personal favorites include Leaders, Know About It, Feeling Magnetic, and Fuck My Enemies (ft. Kevin Abstract), all of which carry different sounds. Another solid project from Allan Kingdom, check out Lines below and stay tuned for more.

SPVCE is really coming into themselves as a collective, hopefully this is just the tip of the iceberg. Peep the video for “Made For This” above and keep an eye out for more from SPVCE.
