If you're walking around the hip Kensington Market neighborhood of Toronto and see a Mercedes-Benz roll by with smoke pouring out the windows, odds are you just caught a glimpse of Derek Wise. On a new single, his first feature since May 2013's Clayco, the unsigned buzzmaker invites us to jump in his ride for a tour of his local stamping grounds. Thats generous invitation is rendered rather eerie by Geoff Wood's ominous, sampled beat, as well as Derek's own world-weary, borderline-croaked vocals. The artist himself directs the official visuals, turning in an atmospheric clip that perfectly matches the song's nocturnal vibe. The Moms Basement LP as yet lacks a drop date, but we'll keep you supplied with singles and release details as they emerge.
