If you’re not familiar with Bunlo, I encourage you to cease your somnambulance. The Miami-born, Toronto-bred artist is one of the most distinctive voices of Canada’s Latin trap wave, displaying a weighty-yet-nimble flow and mastery for penning hooks en español on last year’s smashes “Volar” and “Pilas.” He has every intention of expanding his musical arsenal this year—he’ll drop a sun-kissed kush cloud of a reggaeton duet with Toronto singer Esco this February, and a filthy, bilingual drill bop with OVO affiliate TV Gucci in April. All this leading up to a new EP, titled Los Files 2, this summer. Big things on the way for Big Bun. —Alex Nino Gheciu
