Michigan production cohorts Black Noi$e and SKYWLKR are behind some of your favorite trippy Midwest rap beats for Danny Brown, Zelooperz, Cashout Ant, Lucki, Kash Tha Kushman and more. They’re inspired by videogames, hood tapes, emo bands and hot sauce corn chips (among other things). Besides playing bass in a hardcore band and throwing late-night get-downs in his hometown, Black Noi$e crafts jazz-laden beats and some of the most sublime house and techno tracks around – the most recent of which can be found on his self-titled debut EP. A core member of Brown’s Bruiser Brigade crew as well as the Detroit rapper’s tour DJ, SKYWLKR is best-known for sinister cyberpunk instrumentals and fire mixtapes.
