Ty Dolla $ign and HWLS (Ta-ku x Kit Pop) Create a ‘Song From Scratch’

Ty Dolla $ign and HWLS have unveiled their new collaboration 'Plays' as part of the "Songs From Scratch" series. The series pairs somewhat unlikely collaborations and follows them from start to finish as they create a song that is then given out through Adidas and Yours Truly.

We’re big fans of the “Songs From Scratch” series from adidas originals and Yours Truly!

It’s such an interesting and inspiring insight how two artists (or an artist and a producer) whom most likely know of other but have rarely/never worked together can come together, spend a day in the studio and create a song together.

More often than not, the song always comes out sounding so damn good. Remember the collaborations between Chet Faker x GoldLink? Or how about the one between Mr Carmack x Kehlani? Still love both of those tracks.

The most recent pairing is Perth’s own HWLS (aka Ta-ku and Kit Pop) and Ty Dolla $ign, and together, the two cook up an all-new, original effort entitled ‘Plays.’

The single features soulful vocals from Ty Dolla $ign over hazy production that will have you feeling dreamy in no time. Ty’s vocals ride over the crisp production before HWLS takes over doing what they do best; distorting, chopping, pitching Ty’s vocals and letting loose on the beat.

Listen to the complete collaboration below:

For those keen on seeing HWLS live, they’ll be playing a couple of Laneway Festival after-parties in Sydney and Melbourne (this weekend and next respectively), supporting the one and only Hudson Mohawke.
If we could, we would definitely be there. Check out the Facebook event page for all the event details on that.
