HW&W Recordings (which stands for Huh What & Where) started in founder Keith Fujimoto‘s dorm room.  Today, the little LA-based label that could shines bright with an artist roster of rising production prodigies:   Bahwee, Co. fee, Elaquent, Evil Needle, Juj, Kaytranada, Mike Gao, Sweater Beats and Ta-ku, to name only a few.  Arguably, these guys are one in a handful of camps accountable for shaping the underground beatscene  – not just in the City of Angels, but everywhere.  A year ago, the fledgling label dropped the first volume of their artist compilation – something for the fans, a beat tape of alleged studio scraps maybe.  Cut to the present, with an abundance of buzz and glory, Vol. 2 is set to drop any minute now.  Listen to the first leak “PressPlay” by Esta off the forthcoming compilation.

Recently, the HW&W gang took over Boiler Room LA and could have dropped a mic on their way out.  Check out their sets below.
