Stwo is a French producer who developed a huge online following due to his lush electronic remixes of hip-hop and R&B tracks as well as his own bedroom-meets-club instrumentals. Last year, he moved from his native Paris to Toronto to work under OVO 40. He's since remixed Roy Woods, been remixed by Majid Jordan, and assisted in the production of Drake's "Weston Road Flows," a standout off VIEWS.
A week ago, Stwo put out his debut EP, D.T.S.N.T., which features an eclectic range of collaborators, including Amir Obe and Daniel Caesar. Both OVO affiliates, Obe from Detroit and Caesar from Toronto, guest on the track "Fill the Void." The song is an experimental take on the standard OVO template of the past year or so -- woozy, ambient melodies and a drunken mix of remorseful singing and rapping. All three of these guys would fit well into the roster of the premier Canadian label.

I'm in the moment, don't tell me I'm blowin' it
Relation with you got me growin' up
Word after word, it's some poetry
In person it's hard just to open up
