WALLYPDF, otherwise known as Wally Sajimi, forms a completely idysocranic musical project. Originally from New Jersey, he now resides across New York, Los Angeles, and Portugal, bringing a complexion of lavish lofi tunes to life in an extraordinarily unique way.
Sporting lavishing lofi tones sweep across his unique soundscape, paired up with blissful beats with the tantalizing tones of calmness and electronica, his latest effort, “babyx3” grows into a mellow soundtrack that would find a home in a sunstoked coffee house, or the earbuds of a budding scholar. With musical influences varying from Jay Z to Brandy, WallyPDF proves there are truly no limits to his creativity.
Having recently signed with Downtown Music, he continues to develop exponentially as an artist. With over 300,000 monthly listeners and streaming numbers hitting the millions, he’s becoming a frontier for technology-immersed music. In 2021, he made the Forbes 30 Under 30 Class of 2021, and has also founded several companies, including Nietzsche Labs and an NFT company, Minti. Alongside his work in music, he also helps with Creative Direction for Azuki and co-founder of Jewellery company Her Children, hitting worldwide stores with Euphoria’s finest Angus Cloud as the face of the brand.
Following on from his last single, ‘All Of That’, which gained great traction at the beginning of 2020, AD‘s single ‘Rico’, showcases the Portuguese spitter’s versatility on the track which no doubt leaves the listener hyped and wanting more. ‘Rico’ is an up-tempo, gritty, hip hop track where AD slams down a bold storyline, comparing it to the synopses of the hit film “Paid In Full”, where ‘Rico’ isn’t someone to be trusted.

‘Luz’ is the second release from AFONSO which represents a self-analysis, where the singer focuses on his necessity of development and discovery within himself, although the song was written for the minds that don’t recognise this quality.
‘Luz’ – meaning light in Portuguese – the singer’s mother tongue, acts as a teaching piece, almost like an enlightenment for the listener. To Afonso, this phenomenon has been very important throughout his life and it’s what makes him feel whole, so he sings to underline the fact that it’s only possible to reach this thought through the level of sincerity you have with yourself, your emotions and your journey. It’s by facing his demons that the singer frees himself of negative thoughts and welcomes happiness. Through the heartfelt chords, groovy percussion and the wave-like harps and strings, Afonso sets himself by the seashore – the place where he feels most at ease and connected with himself.
