Playlist of the Week: Wes Period

This twenty-something SoCal native wants to tell you his story.

Meet Wes Period, a young buck from LA who is hitting the music scene hard. After releasing his breakout EP Friendly Fire in 2011, Wes has continued to churn out refreshing and unique sounds. When he’s not collaborating with the likes of Fat Tony, Jez Dior, Lovelife, Mystery Skulls and The Heavytrackerz, you can find him throwing shade for Marc Jacobs’ Marc the Sun campaign.

His latest song, “Highs and Lows”, rocks a hazy synth beat that depicts the roller coaster he calls his hustle. Check out the “Highs and Lows” video below.
