“Comedown, Comedown.”

If you don’t recognize this as the opening adlib from “We Are Not” by Ca$tro Guapo, you’re late. The rising Toronto rapper’s breakout single is the first major offering from the rising collective CMDWN, a group of rappers and producers advancing Toronto’s new wave of industrial beats and aggressive flows. After CMDWN’s a couple of unexpected high profile NXNE appearances with both Sean Leon and Jazz Cartier, “We Are Not” is the precursor to a movement that’s about to explode.

At the centre of CMDWN’s wave is Creative Director and Co-Founder Teo Nio. The Toronto-via-Ottawa DJ/producer has a distinct ear for song selection, creative flips, and subtle transitions, all of which come shining through on his inaugural mix for Toronto-based sonic collective BEVSTMODE. Introducing Teo Nio features bangers from Goldlink, Post Malone, and Jimmy Johnson, but obviously, the 33-minute mix’s shining moment is reserved for “We Are Not.”

Listen to Introducing Teo Nio below, and if you like what you hear, show face at Toronto’s most hilariously-named party The Museum Of Contemporary Thots on Friday, June 26th at the Edward Day Gallery in Toronto.
