KAMI Releases “Scene Girl”

posted by Oscar January 26, 2017

KAMI, previously known as Kami de Chukwu and one half of the Leather Corduroys, has dropped a new track today. The synth-Pop joint is titled “Scene Girl,” and it’s a continuation of KAMI diving into New Wave for his solo project.

The track was produced (and features some additional vocals) by Knox Fortune, and it has a dark vibe to it that would fit in perfectly in a club lit with neon lights.

Details for the upcoming album are coming soon, so stay tuned for that! Hear “Scene Girl” below. Continue Reading

posted by Oscar October 18, 2016

KAMI has released his visuals for “Home Movies”, the first track off his upcoming, debut LP coming early 2017. One half of Leather Corduroys KAMI, bka Kami de Chukwu, recruited Knox Fortune for the lead single on which we see him take a stark change in direction towards New Wave.

The video was directed by Andre Muir and it follows Kelly Bode as a daydreaming waitress who closes shop early to live out a dancing fantasy to the tune of a band called KAMI and the Whatevers that also features Vic Mensa, Joey Purp, and Knox. Peep Vic as a dishwater towards the end of the dance sequence.

The WAV hit the Metro showing us that the Tsunami Mob x Savemoney Militia is in fact the suppliers of the wave. I am big fan of both Towkio and Kehlani, so I was already really excited to go. I’ve been following both acts for about a year and a half now. Kehlani just dropped her mixtape “You Should be Here” and Towkio just dropped his mixtape “Wav Theory.” I had been patiently waiting for both tapes. Kehlani fed me that soul I needed and Towkio topped it off with some beautiful funk. The fact that the two acts were performing together was really dope. Unfortunately I had missed DJ Spin’s set. I got a nice spot in the middle right side of the crowd and was ready to jam out.

Noodles, Kehlani’s DJ, came out and was the perfect hype woman. BaeLani’s set was – of course- so beautiful. I found myself singing each and every word. After every song I would say “SOOOO BEAUTIFUL.” She sang one of my favorite songs by her, “Til The Morning” and I didn’t do anything but WATCH & LISTEN. She played mostly Cloud 19 bangers & hit us with some You Should Be Here tracks. The dancing and vocals were perfectly on point. I remember thinking to myself “She isn’t playing much off You Should Be Here… so that must mean she’ll have another Chicago show soon!!!” It was such a wonderful performance, I do look forward to seeing her whenever she is back.

Towkio came out giving off his amazing energy and introducing us to his .WAV THEORY. The other day I asked someone if they were going to the show and said “you really should his stage presence is amazing.” Towkio takes over the stage and captivates his audience, making you feel his music and presence. Leather Corduroys joined Towki on stage a performed some songs. Towkio also brought out Kehlani, Eryn Allen Kane and of course his Save Money brother, Chance The Rapper. Chance drove the crowd crazy when he performed “Sunday Candy.”

One thing I really liked about the show was how well the visuals were done. I left completely satisfied and so happy I came out to the show. Every performer there delivered amazingly and did not disappoint. This was not my first time seeing either acts, so I’m happy they kept me interested and musically energized. After the show, photos of Kehlani, Chance and Towkio surfaced of them working on set with Austin Vesely.… future music video coming out?? Let’s hope so!  Do not sleep on either act. Get in tune with the Tsunami Mob x Save Money brand.

Towkio WAV Theory

The day is finally here for Towkio’s release of his hotly-anticipated mixtape .WAV Theory. The new mixtape is set to propel Towkio to new heights and it’s fair to say that this has the quality to make him the next big star out of SaveMoney.

.WAV Theory boasts production from Kaytranada, Lido, Carter Lang, and another POD favorite Stefan Ponce, as well as from Towkio himself. Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, Donnie Trumpet, Leather Corduroys and Eryn Allen Kane are among the features.

SaveMoney’s Leather Corduroys held their first headlining show at Reggie’s Rock Club to celebrate the release of their most recent project, Season. The SaveMoney tag team ran through many of the projects tracks like “Mexican Coke”, “Badmon,” “Adios” and others. D.R.A.M. helped open up the show and Leather Chords brought out their fellow SaveMoney reps Towkio and Chance The Rapper as specials guests. It wouldn’t be a SaveMoney show if there weren’t any special guests. Am I right? Check out more footage of last nights festivities below.  Continue Reading
