Seemingly everywhere in Chicago’s contemporary hip/hop, rap and R&B scenes, PHOELIX has solidified his role as one of the most impressive and promising new producers coming out of this city today. His most notable works include producing the majority of both NONAME’s debut album, Telephone, and SMINO’s debut, blkswn. Frequently joining national and international tours for Chicago’s burgeoning hip/hop world, PHOELIX has taken a quick step back to focus on his own work with the release of his new album, Tempo. Crafting a truly iconic and powerful sound in an already highly saturated circle, PHOELIX is primed for blazing greatness here and beyond.
Originally a member of local production collective ThemPeople, THEMIND, got his start to his eccentric vocal career during a recording session with MICK JENKINS in 2014. Humming along to a track they were working on, listeners in the room urged him to try his take on singing. Nearly five years later and THEMIND has contributed to Chicago powerhouses CHANCE THE RAPPER and JOEY PURP on some of their most notable releases. Like his contemporaries, his ambition rings strong and his since independently released his own full-length mixtape, Summer Camp. We can’t wait to hear the intimate and romantic raw energy that everyone’s been talking about.
