Created mostly in his London studio, the EP features seven tracks highlighting six brand new productions including: “Eyez On Me,” which has TroyBoi reuniting with Nina Sky who appeared on his 2015 breakout single with Diplo “Afterhours”; “Corneta,” a blazing Latin trap jam with Brazil’s Tropkillaz; “Bellz,” which drips with references to Anita Ward’s 70’s classic “Ring My Bell”; And instrumentals “Baby,” “Unstoppable” and “Clear Waters” all which showcase his unique trap production interwoven with unique and unexpected elements from warped vocal samples to string instrumentation. V!BEZ Vol. 4 also marks the official release of his underground single “On My Own” featuring NEFERA which in 2015 landed on YouTube playlist Mr Suicide Sheep garnering to date almost 72 million views.
T-R-O-Y-B-O-I. These letters are chanted by the masses at his shows, but the question is who is the artist incorporating stunning visuals, live instruments, talented dancers and those jaw dropping aerialists? Troy Henry, the elusive producer who has classified himself as a music manipulation specialist got his start making his beats standing up in his London studio apartment kitchen with his Mac Book and a midi keyboard. Today, the TroyBoi Experience is indeed a musical journey of hard-hitting beats, lights, visuals, and the unexpected. While his musical style can be broadly classified as trap, it’s extraordinarily unique, versatile, and fuses various textures from multiple genres. He is of Nigerian, Indian, Chinese, and Portuguese descent, and credits this (along with growing up in London, with its own blend of cultures and genres) for the diversity that is reflected in his music. Beyond his career releases which include his debut album Left Is Right (2017) and series of V!BEZ EPs in 2018 and 19, his productions have caught the ear of major music stars. His 2018 remix of Billie Eilish’s “MyBoi-TroyBoi Remix” has garnered almost 79 million Spotify streams and in 2019, Rihanna featured two of his songs “Do You?” and “Malokara” at her SavagexFenty show, seen globally via Amazon Prime during New York Fashion Week. TroyBoi’s sound has evolved from when he began his musical journey to now headlining at some of the world’s largest festival stages such as Coachella, Lollapalooza (Chicago & Paris), Life Is Beautiful, HARD, EDC China and Electric Zoo just to name a few as well as holding down residencies at Drai’s Beachclub in Las Vegas and Ushuaia in Ibiza, Spain. Look for TroyBoi to release V!BEZ Vol 4 in early 2021 with a new artist project to follow later in the year.
