With tens of millions of streams on everything from originals to remixes and a unique background which includes stints as a West Point cadet and a wide receiver for the Army football team, NYC-based solo artist THIEVES, previously known as Party Thieves, has swiftly made his presence known in the music world.
His ability to be able to take any track or idea and make it his own has been recognised by renowned names like RL Grime, Skrillex, and Diplo. Producing for years now, THIEVES is known for his bass bin-rattling hits, ‘Origin’ and ‘Poppy Seeds’, both tracks expressing his unique style from the moment the vocals hit in a rush of adrenaline and endorphins, combining hard-hitting trap elements and with a deep musicality.
THIEVES has also inspired a movement called the Theft Army; an army hungry for the incredible music he consistently puts out. Going beyond just the music though, THIEVES uses his platform and following to make a bigger difference within communities. Being able to unite his passion for music with his philanthropic values, the Theft Army movement goes beyond celebrating a killer track or party. THIEVES has created a movement to help change the world for the better, one song at a time
You weren’t born to conform with society’s norm.
In the last twelve months, WA-FU has established himself as a force to be reckoned with.
It makes perfect sense to define him as Australia’s response to the rising powerhouse that is UK Bass. WA-FU’s unique sound can be defined as a fusion heavily influenced by Bassline and Garage, tearing through speakers with its raw energy and power, guaranteed to get any crowd moving to its heaving basslines.
This year WA-FU has really made his presence known in the world. His edit of Fisher’s modern classic ‘Losing It’ has exploded world-wide gaining support from artists such as Laidback Luke, Holy Goof, Skepsis, Flava D, TS7, Darkzy and Dr. Fresch. WA-FU’s first label release, ‘No Time’ peaked at #14 in the ARIA Charts. His remixes of Ignay’s ‘If You Love Me’ and Skrillex & Habstrakt’s ‘Chicken Soup’ are certified heaters, leaving listeners stunned with the same question in their minds: “Wa-Who?”
The energy heard in his tracks is mirrored in his performance behind the decks, not satisfied until every minute of his set has his crowd breathless, dripping in sweat yet begging for more.
Don’t sleep on WA-FU – you can be certain that his name will be known across the world in no time at all.
