I love finding new music, especially stuff that defies expectations. It’s hard these days to actually find music that surprises you and shows you something different, but MGNS just did that and more.

Pronounced “Magnus,” this young producer from Norway is the first release onĀ Sounds From The Basement, the new imprint from Basement Music. MGNS only has 110 followers on Soundcloud (111, now that I’m listening), but his style represents someone who has a much larger following.

“Wanna Be With U” blends old school hip hop instrumentation with some airy and light lead synth work for an incredible effect. Once the trumpet enters the mix, the track really starts to hit the soul. Combined with the lyrics and vocals, this is a true hip hop/electronic chimera for the modern day.
