Love and Grow are the "Things We Do"

The “Things We Do”, single is an introduction to a collaborative EP, “i am u”, between Akinyemi and ATELLER. The Tel Aviv native ATELLER produces a beat so fitting for the Akinyemi and Leuca collaboration in “The Things We Do”. The wavey introduction is kindly accompanied by the soft harmonies of New York-based, singer and rapper, Leuca that is later met with Akinyemi’s verse so eloquently in flow.

The song depicts romance and growth between lovers. Leuca seduces us with his soft singing, while Akinyemi makes us fall in love with his poetry and ensures “resurrecting healing” through the journey of love. The duo so perfectly captures the maturity of love over lust, while crafting a song that should be added to every date night playlist.

Here’s what they had to say about their latest release:

Leuca states:
“I think what I was trying to articulate was the importance of authentic growth with another person. Growing together but growing the correct way & being intentional in love. Being focused can do a lot between two people. Time can’t heal and we won’t be here forever so let’s effectively use the time we have.”


Akinyemi states:
"In my verse, I touched on how we grow with other people through memories. 'I send them back a credential that Men in Black couldn't get to', essentially means that our memories are our main essence and being. As we grow, no one can take that from us. Memories can be put in the background of our consciousness, but they won't ever be forgotten."

ATELLER states:
"yo it's a vibe, a feel-good song, you know? I feel like I'm driving down the PCH. Woooooooo"

*goes back into room and makes beats*

Heard of elsewhere yet? Well, you should it's the hottest warehouse dance club in Brooklyn. On Friday, PopGun Presents curated a perfect feel-good line up to kick off the weekend. The Golden Pony took the stage to start the night and was followed by the infamous Dances With White Girls to bring you an eclectic dance party in preparation for "Self Help"

Upon entering the room was filled with Dirtybird fans eagerly awaiting the Walker & Royce experience. Lazers illuminated the room while the partygoers shuffled throughout the dance floor and swayed to the rhythm of the mix master's beat.

Soyyo Magazine had an exclusive look at the Walker & Royce pre-performance, green room ritual.  Gavin Royce and Sam Walker both humbly hosted over a dozen of their closest friends as they threw back some beers and mezcal in preparation for their on-stage appearance. The gents calmly indulged in conversation with fellow producers, label managers, and fans like myself. 

Upon their stage appearance, fans happily danced to the recognized tunes from the latest album, and of course the crowd favorite "Take Me to Your Leader" featuring fellow producer - Dances With White Girls.
