Tomás Matos is stepping into their "Rapstress" era with their debut mixtape The WYD Mixtape, which is now available for listening on select platforms.
The New York multi-hyphenate performer (Diana, Hadestown) and recent Fire Island star has made an eight-track album produced in collaboration with Bill Coleman for Peace Bisquit. The WYD Mixtape is packed with Matos' fresh takes on the R&B and hip-hop genres the artist was raised on.
Matos, who says music has always served as a form of therapy, hopes their new music can empower listeners in a similar way, explaining, "Stepping into what I am penning my 'Rapstress'-era has shown me that my gifts and abundance have no bounds...I want my fans to use these tracks as mantras, affirmations, or simply to pump down the street [to]!"
Matos will celebrate the new recording March 2, performing at Frankie Sharp's new party DEMONS at Paragon in Brooklyn.
