WaitWhat ft Akacia – Drives Me Wild
Troy Skinner and Damon Dokhani, known as waitwhat, are a DJ/producer duo based in the Bay Area. Troy and Damon first met during their time at UC Berkeley, where Troy began producing and Damon made strides towards becoming a solo performing act under the moniker NomaD. After seeing the potential in one another, Damon joined Troy’s solo project, waitwhat, in June 2017. Since then, waitwhat has accumulated millions of streams across all platforms, led by their first original “Alive” – released through Future Bass XO of the Chill Trap Network – and their remix of Tep No’s “Sippin’ On Feelings” with SEPPIE – released on Ultra Records. During this same time, waitwhat has shared stages with notable acts including Audien, Ekali, Zeds Dead, Joyryde, Jauz, Vincent, Nitti Gritti and more.
“We started this beat in 2017 but were never able to finish it, though it had always been a favorite of ours with the off-kilter piano and vibey synths. The delay in releasing was worth it though, as it led us to the perfect vocalist, Akacia, to finish up the song. The result is a fun song about finding someone who makes your world go from ‘black and white’ to ‘colored in every moment,’ we hope you enjoy!” – WaitWhat
