British production duo WiDE AWAKE have grown an audience over the years with collaborations with Jacob Banks and Wiley under their belt. Now they have tapped New York trappers MEMBA and up-and-coming rapper XO Man for what is sure to become the latest festival trap favourite, “Vexed”.
The track delivers in every way. XO Man’s reggae-tinged rap vocal brings a modern swag and hype leading into an explosive, bass-heavy drop, with a bouncing rhythm that’s impossible not to move to.
WiDE AWAKE has become one of the most sought-after production duos out of the UK today, and they have credits on releases from Pitbull and Will Smith, and MEMBA has quickly gained attention for their exciting contributions to the trap and hip hop world. This track solidifies the producer pairs as mainstays in the game already being slammed by a long list of tastemakers. Keep an ear out for this single at festivals for the next year, and just try not to rage along when the drop pops off. “Vexed” is available now on Tiesto’s Musical Freedom label.
