Haunted Vocals. Gritty dissonance. Uplifting downtempo. These are the worlds that aiwake has begun to blend together.
The project first experienced some commercial success in mid 2017 when the first two singles 'Birds’ and 'Childish' were taken seriously across streaming platforms. Playlisted across the board, the second single even cracked the US Viral 50 chart on Spotify. 'Crescent Lane' followed early 2018 and a signing with Majestic Casual happened not long after. The singles that resulted from that collaboration, 'Palm City’ and 'Tonight (Sundown)’, were both positively received and appeared on major playlists such as Today’s chill on Apple music, or Spotify Fresh Finds. The second track being accompanied by a gorgeous one-take live session, recorded in Toronto. The year 2019 was concluded by the release of two remixes: Hazey Eyes & Panama - Emotion (aiwake remix), followed by Instupendo - Pinch (aiwake remix).
