The group’s most recent EPs feature the acronym DTG, which stands for Death To Genres. The group believes in blending hip hop, different forms of EDM and pop influences into its sound. Based on what it has released thus far, you can still pretty accurately just call the music a mix of EDM and Trap music, and these tunes are most definitely made for dancing.

The upcoming album, which is set to drop Oct. 7, includes collaborations with TinasheVince StaplesWax Motif and Iamsu. The band released the first single, “Get It All,” from the new LP last month.
