The EP:

With a special talent for lilting, aching melody, Houston’s Trevor Daniel explores the intricacies of young romance in his genre-bending songs. Returning to the scene with a richly textured 6-track effort, Trevor Daniel shares the Restless EP. Produced by Taz Taylor and his Internet Money crew, including producer Nick Mira (Juice WRLD’s top ten hit “Lucid Dreams”), Restless builds a unique sonic world around Trevor’s voice, layering snaking guitars and resonant trap drums to soundtrack his dramatic narratives. The songs on Restless find the Houston singer-songwriter exploring every facet of his relationships, from the inseparable start, as detailed in the synth-heavy slow jam “Come Over,” to the heart-wrenching finish, demonstrated in songs like the mournful trap ballad “Closure” or the FLAUNT-premiered lead single  “Paranoid. Throughout the EP, premiered by Complex, Taz Taylor and the rest of the Internet Money producers raise their game, detailing each speaker-knocking instrumental with pristine clarity and switching up the sound with whimsical musical flourishes. The follow-up to Trevor’s 2018 EP Homesick, which boasted the mournful breakout hit Falling” (over 10 million total streams), Restless EP arrives via Internet Money Records/Alamo.

Reaching an impressive level of viral popularity on streaming services, “Falling” earned over 5 million streams on Spotify and inspired millions of views on user-generated content on Instagram, as detailed in a recent Complex feature. Premiered by Complex and featured in HYPEBEAST, “Falling” recently caught the ear of blackbear, who collaborated with Trevor on a remix that reached the top 20 of Spotify’s United States Viral 50 chart.

Trevor Daniel is the first signee to Internet Money Records, the new partnership between rising producer Taz Taylor and Alamo Records. A game-changing company in digital music, Taz Taylor started Internet Money as a beat-making company and collective through which producers could make beats and sell them a-la-carte to artists. As Internet Money grew, Taz Taylor became a well-respected songwriter and producer, signing a publishing deal with APG, shaping the sound of countless rising stars, producing four tracks on Lil Skies’ chart-topping Life of a Dark Rose, crafting the instrumental for the late XXXTentacion’s platinum-selling “Fuck Love” featuring  Trippie Redd, and reaching #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 with Rich The Kid’s “Plug Walk.” Taz Taylor recently earned a GRAMMY®-nomination for his work on Drake’s top-selling Scorpion album.

Trevor Daniel Background:

Trevor Daniel began as a bedroom musician that now has since reached more than 20 million people. Based in Houston, the singer’s music is a gestalt of his influences. He is a fan of that 808’s Kanye-Drake-Cudi wave, Y2K Techno, and his city’s Chopped & Screwed trademark. With the voice, the melodic production, and heartfelt songwriting, Trevor thrives. The first act signed to Taz Taylor’s Internet Money Records broadcasts his life in sound and verse.

Taz Taylor/Internet Money Records:

A real boss moves in silence. For as loud as his influence resounds throughout hip-hop at large, multiplatinum producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Taz Taylor operates from behind-the-scenes. In that respect, he harks back to the genre’s game-changing production mavericks of the nineties and early 21st century. At the same time, he brings a fresh sense of melody to each tune often punctuated by live instrumentation. In 2018, his record label Internet Money signed a joint venture agreement with Alamo and Interscope. You may not recognize his face, but you’ll know his style…
