Towkio shares official music video for Lido-assisted ‘Drift’ [Watch]

Chicago is currently experiencing a golden moment in the city’s already legendary hip-hop history, largely behind the work of young up-and-coming figures like Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, and Towkio, among others. Preston Oshita, better known as Towkio, is staking his claim in the current hip-hop space with his dexterous lyrical hopscotching and adventurous flow, and he’s no stranger to working with some of electronic music’s brightest forward-thinkers. Past collaborators include Kaytranada, Mr. Carmack, as well as Lido, who produced the rapper’s latest single “Drift.”

On the production end, “Drift” finds Lido on a screeching joy ride, putting together a hypnotic rap beat broken up by infectious half time breaks and off-kilter clinks and kicks. The track marks Towkio’s major label debut, recorded at Rick Rubin’s legendary Shangri La studio in Malibu. Towkio’s latest also comes complete with a high-octane new music video that fits the track’s name perfectly. “Drift”takes on a DIY-inspired filming style, catching the rhymer everywhere from pyramids in Mexico, to the middle of a drifting car’s tightly wound figure eight. Pulling out all the stops with fast cars, bikes, and even hot air balloons, Towkio who also assisted Todd Burr in directing the new video, delivers a one-two punch on “Drift.”
