Chicago is a city rich in culture and creativity. The artistry, musicianship and entrepreneurship that arises from the city’s vast abundance of creatives continues to blow me away the more and more I search for them. One of my favorite gems I recently came across comes from Made Up Records, with their newest single “Dont Rush”.

On the third single off of their forthcoming EP, Hoofy Baby (aka Dan Hofman) collaborates with artists Senite and TheMIND to create this enchanting track. Featuring smooth and soulful production from producer Ethan Deetz, the song’s serene melodic aspects in pair with swinging live drums gives the space for two artists to shine with their angelic vocals. Senite begins the song by exhibiting her elegant singing voice and impassioned storytelling on the chorus. Later on, TheMIND comes in demonstrating his own equally enchanting vocals and poetic lyricism. The alchemy of the soothing instrumental and the pair’s intimate vocals make for a peaceful and softhearted track.

You can listen to “Dont Rush” out now on streaming services and stay tuned for Made Up Records debut EP “Before I Do This” coming in August!
