Download: Billy the Gent (& Friends) – Through the Wire
After enduring months of vague “#throughthewire” hashtags on Twitter, IT’S FINALLY HERE. Billy the Gent‘s Through the Wire moombahton compilation has finally reached the airwaves! Two-man teams of everybody’s favorite moombahtonistas came together to create one of the most anticipated releases of the year. All these tracks are fire and I didn’t expect anything less upon seeing each production match-up. I’m particularly obsessed with Paul Devro and Cassius Slay’s “Zimbabwav”. Can’t. Stop. Listening. But anyway, while I’m doing that, read what Billy has to say about the creation of Through the Wire:
This compilation all began when I started working on a song with DJ Klever (bonus track). We made an entire track over the internet and It got me thinking about how the web brings so many people together with tons of collaborations that would otherwise never be possible. So I ran with that idea and put together an entire compilation of songs made exclusively over the internet. I contacted some of my favorite moombahton producers/bros and literally drew names out of a hat to match up collaborators. The only rules were everyone had one month to complete their song (we all kinda broke this rule) and that you could not meet in person to work on it. When I got all the tracks back, I contacted my friend and fellow Audio Ammo crew member Brian Woodland to design the artwork. Im super happy with the outcome of this, and hopefully you all enjoy!!
Billy rules. There’s literally nothing more inspiring than a group of producers coming together to make the world of music a happier place for us all. MOOMBAHTON FOR PRESIDENT!
