New Release: Free – Torii Wolf (ft. Macklemore & DJ Premier )


TORII WOLF has emerged onto the music scene as if she was shot out of a cannon. The singer/songwriter from Wantagh, New York who traded coasts-bouncing around West Coast cities and in doing so enhanced herself artistically; shunning categories, genres, confinement and convention.

Thanks to her sultry voice, range and musicality, Torii has enjoyed a precipitous rise. With an iconic producer who has a habit of producing and contributing to classic projects manning the boards, TORII WOLF & DJ Premier’s forthcoming collaborative union bum-rushes the walls of genres, age and expectations to let the world know a Flow Riiot is upon us.

Flow Riiot’s anthemic lead-single ‘Free’ tackles the battle we face every day to be our authentic selves and a reminder that our freedom comes from within and how we hold the key to how “Free” we really are. “Free” features Macklemore, who makes the lone guest appearance on Flow Riiot and the single was exclusively premiered by Complex.

The tracks topic matter holds very special meaning to Torii, as she expressed to Complex. ‘Free’ is a special tune. It’s very relatable. True freedom comes from within; it’s the battle we face each day with our own identity. Having the confidence to be comfortable in our skin and with who we are; and being our true authentic selves.”

TORII WOLF’s debut solo-album, ‘Flow Riiot’, will be released on 29th September via DJ Premier’s TTT (To The Top) imprint. For now, listen to the first installment of the upcoming album, ‘Free’.

Shedding some light on to the situation, DJ Premier declared: “Miguel and I were vibing at a session and just really seeing what we could come up with. What we came up with was a dope, but a rough version of what you hear today. Miguel and I had deadlines and we never got around to finishing it. We both really believed in this version of the track and we both felt very strongly that it needed to come out and be released as a single. Miguel and I approached the label about releasing it and everyone was on-board”

As MIGUEL has previously stated, he and Premier were always going to find a special way to release this track, now entitled “2 LOVIN U”; and true to their words, they have. “The track having a different title gives it a new light” DJ Premier states. “Wait until you see the video!”
