Chance has a home studio now and a production crew called Social Experiment. So obviously his latest song is called “Home Studio (Back Up in this Bitch)”. Nate Fox and Nico Segal produced, the track features Chano reflecting on some of his successes over the past year, how he’s got the labels telling him he’s not playing fair. The beat is funky, so get your dancing shoes out. Enjoy! Solo Chano is back up in this bitch, AND he’s got that Young Thug flow on too!
This should probably be called the year that was, but to help with tagging, we’re sticking with “Week.” Away for some time, but getting back on track, expect more and more ACITM music coverage as I finish my studies and head back to what has become the mecca of music, Chicago. We’ve got an old favorite in The Ataris coming to town Friday night, with an Orwells homecoming in April.
Without further ado, let’s get to the music. Starting us off are Sunny Gicz and Gabe Niles, aka Sunny & Gabe, a Virginia duo that varies from a hazy overcast to a strong trip hop pounding bass. They’ve got a mixtape called “Free Candy” that’s available for download now. Expect new music soon from these two.
Joined by Chicago friend Chance the Rapper, The O’My’s put on a soulful show at the Metro Friday night. If you haven’t listened to these guys yet, get to it– The O’My’s embody Chicago talent. Check out our photos from the show below!
The Weeknd’s remix of Beyonce’s hit Drunk in Love is hot. Released yesterday, the track shows off Abel’s mesmirizingly smooth vocals – perfect for Valentine’s Day weekend. Check it out below and let us know if you like the remix as much as we do.
The long awaited track is here. Chance x Biebz. AND it’s actually pretty smooth. Make that real smooth. Chance jumps on the verse towards the end of the song and destroys the track… guess we finally know where that “ooo-woooo” mating like call came from during Chance’s Chicago show last week. Stream it below! Let us know what you think!
It’s been three years since the release of the huge hit Barbra Streisand (woah, three years…), but Duck Sauce is back with a new song- Radio Stereo. A-Trak and Armand Van Helden, the guys behind Duck Sauce, have a new record dropping on 10/29, and we can only hope that this album will also make us want to frolic through New York City. Check out Radio Stereo and early previews of the new album in the BBC Essential Mix link below!
R&B crooner The Weeknd returns to Chicago for two shows at the historic Chicago Theater on October 13th & 14th. Fresh off the release of his album Kiss Land, The Weeknd’s smooth, sultry jams are addicting.

We’re digging “Too Close,” the latest track from Brooklyn-based synth-pop group St. Lucia. The experimental electronics make it the perfect song to close out summer and wind into fall. The band’s new album When The Night drops October 8.
