Meet SYSYI and montell2099, two small town boys hailing, respectively, from little old Thames, and even littler old Katikati. Both have made the move to big little AK this year to study DJ & Electronic music production at MAINZ Music and Audio Institute, and they’re certainly making names for themselves around town.
Both newcomers have chosen to stay anonymous, producing tracks under their artist names. By letting their music speak for itself, that’s exactly what it’s proving to do.
After having Migos “Jumping Like Jordan” stuck in his head, SYSYI hit montell2099 with the thought of linking up to create a remix. Accordingly, being a big fan of Migos, montel2099 vibed the idea instantly. Like all of SYSYI's tracks, this one started on the bus, with his humble apple earphones. montell2099 described the collab as SYSYI being the brain and himself being the heart. Speaking of heart, fans certainly have love for the magic that’s been made from the process.
Check out the Soundcloud link above, and get familiar. The track's a Hip-Hop meets Future Bass tinder match made in heaven. With a combination of SYSYI’s signature futuristic synths, and Montell’s “RnB’sh with a hint of Jazz” percussion and chord progression combos, it’s looking to make them the ultimate NZ electronic power couple on Soundcloud right now.
Two very small town boys, doing very big things.
