Earlier today, Harlem producer and DJ Austin Millz shared his high-energy new single "Cyclone." The track is set to appear on his upcoming EP of the same name along with "Limelite," his first release from the project. The thumping party cut features an appearance from Nigerian rapper Tunji Ige, who caught our attention earlier this year with his sunshine-inflected track "Bring Yo Friends." He contributes sharp, braggadocio-filled verses to the track, complimenting the room-rattling instrumental flawlessly.
The release of Millz's new track comes with exciting news for the young artist, who recently became the newest signee of A-Trak's independent label, Fools Gold Records. He caught the label's attention with his unprecedented blend of electronic dance music and hip-hop.
"A-Trak and I first got into Austin's music from hearing him at parties and seeing him on flyers right in our backyard," label co-founder Nick Catchdubs says of his latest signee. "He keeps evolving as a producer, and the time was right to do a proper release. These songs would be cool on their own, but their roots in a real musical community and club culture are what make them special."
Cyclone is set to drop in February. Listen to the title track below.
