Wingtip @ Drake Underground
Two-stepping between pop, indie, electro, and even a little disco, San Francisco-born and Los Angeles-based artist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Wingtip keeps it classy and catchy at every turn. That’s why his breakout single “Rewind" quickly became a global smash in late 2016. In under three months, the track went from being featured on Spotify’s “Young & Free” playlist to amassing over 12.2 million streams and counting. In addition, it received praise from Billboard, Dancing Astronaut, Indie Shuffle, My Old Kentucky Blog, and Neon Gold who dubbed him, “The logical heir apparent to The Knocks’ New York disco throne.” It all stems from his hypnotic hybridization of natural instrumentation and expansive production.
“At its height, electronic music can be really forceful, emotive, and kinetic, and it really expresses something directly,” he explains. “Rock, indie, and folk are a little more nuanced and subtle. Blending both is something I dig.”
That blend also came naturally to Perloff. Influenced by Arctic Monkeys and The Strokes, he went from playing guitar in rock bands during high school to composing electronic music on his laptop with inspirations ranging from Skrillex and Diplo to Baths and Gold Panda. The solo creative space proved liberating for the budding artist. Signing to Republic Records at the top of 2017, Perloff continues to chart new territory and consistently engage audiences with his signature blend.
