Willy Joy – 281


Willy Joy is the fuckin’ truth. At this point, every time I hear a new song released by Joy, I anticipate the best and am never disappointed. I was lucky enough to hear two of my favorite songs of his at EDC NY two weeks back – his collaboration with Brillz “WTF” and his remix of “Where’s My Head At” during Crizzly‘s insane set. That weekend, he also dropped a new original which I’ve been meaning to post, themed around Houston’s famed 281 area code and prominently weaving the Mike Jones sample into the energetic trap banger. The twangy bells make up the theme to the song but like most of his productions, the tune takes on many different styles and flavors throughout (especially the synth bridge around the 2-minute mark). I also included a mix by frequent collaborators Team Bayside High – also out of Chicago – recorded for MTV Hive as a mix to “enjoy this on your route to whichever festival/party/show you are attending this summer.” Perfect for anyone like me who’s planning on having a very trapped out summer this year.
