PhilieAno & Toko Tasi- “Wetsuit”
Background on new song “Wetsuit”:
As is the case with most MP3 Leaks, we love to hear the artists perspective on the song, along with the background on the track to fully understand and grasp the meaning of the song. As described by PhilieAno, he explained that “This song is about getting right with your life. Coming to terms with what you have to do to succeed in life and get rid of your demons” –Philieano
Produced by Philieano, “Wetsuit” also features Mike Long (of Capitol Eye & Perro Bravo) on Guitar & Bass. This new song “Wetsuit” is just a taste of whats to come as PhilieAno & Toko Tasi are working on a full length album.
Look out for Philieano vs LD coming really soon, produced by LDontheCut. Also look out for Unscene Crew debut album, produced by Philieano as well. Toko Tasi is part of Unscene Crew. The Pier will have more info on Unscene Crew as soon as its made available to us.
