Settle Down, Derek Wise Is Back With Trap-Infused Candy

XO/Get Home Safe rising artist, Derek Wise has returned to the headlines he’s always set out to maintain, with two new records that bring it all back to that thing he does best – delineate the dark, twisted and glamorous.


After a brief hiatus, Toronto’s recent signee says his current situation has triggered a transformative focus that allows the new music to maintain its authenticity. And two new cuts – Settle Down and Purple Candy – are a testament to that. “I’d say I’m where I want to be creatively, for the moment. I’m in the position where I can turn my day-to-day scenario’s – no matter how fucked up, how dark or how sketchy they may be – into something gorgeous and memorable,” Derek says.


In preparation for his debut project Mom’s Basement, the eerie artist’s latest releases speak volumes regarding what we can anticipate from his forthcoming project, expected later this year. “I’ll be releasing Mom’s Basement very soon. I’m definitely trying to have that glamorous bitch in everyone’s ears while the weather’s right in my city, juuheard,” he says.


In the meantime, experience Wise’s two latest cuts:


Settle Down, a single off of Derek’s long-awaited Mom’s Basement, is a contagious trap banger pulling Wise out from behind the shadows he’s so comfortable in, illuminated by production by Geoff Wood.

Purple Candy is a loose release, with no ties to the forthcoming project, but rather acts as “an eerie ode to vices delivered unlike any of Derek’s contemporaries” and the unique sonic style that dictates his success.

Look out for Mom’s Basement coming soon.
