Hey what’s up guys
We’re going to have monthly newsletters going out to keep people updated with wavvvy.
We’ll let you know about the new content and collaborations we have coming up, plus tell you about any music we’ve been listening to recently!
We’ve got some super exciting collabs coming up - we’re going to be talking with producer, composer and artist Johan Lenox in the next few weeks to hear about his journey in the music industry and how he went from composing avant-garde classical music to producing and composing for some of the biggest names in hip hop and pop music, including - Kanye West, Big Sean, Ty Dolla$ign, Teyana Taylor, 070 Shake and Travis Scott.

We’re also going to be chatting with our friend Oscar Sheller and see him break down some of his work with singer, songwriter and rapper Ashnikko, including her viral Tik Tok hit, ‘Stupid’. Oscar works across lots of different projects and it will be great to show you guys some of his process!
