Towkio is a beloved Chicagoan and fellow member of the original Savemoney crew. His edgy vocals sprinkled with a mix of live instruments and bubbly production have made him an enticing target for features, continuously appearing on songs with the likes of Joey Purp, Kami, theMIND, Vic Mensa, and Chance the Rapper. His lyrics often articulate strong references to his Chicago heritage, club scenes, and introspective philosophical wonderings. His debut mixtape .WAV Theory is a prime example of how he skillfully interweaves these elements all while continuing to critically push the musical envelope. Just this past weekend, he released “Swim,” a celebratory musical experience. His next project, WWW, is reportedly “on the horizon.”
Breakout star and Portland rapper Aminé will headline. Note: He has been wearing and will be wearing the same pants for every night of his 25 city tour. Why? He explained on Twitter, “I’m wearing one pair of pants for the whole tour adding a unique patch for every city… I’m bring 1 fan on stage every show to write on their city’s patch.” Pretty cool reason, I’d say. His debut album, Good For You, dropped this past summer after his “Caroline” video captured the humor and attention of millions of viewers. He snagged features from memorable artists such as Kehlani, Nelly, and Charlie Wilson among others. Aminé’s authenticity to himself is adored by many and proven successful when integrated into his music.
