Though he has a handful of EPs out, Halifax producer Ryan Hemsworth has made his name in a more fractal manner than most. There are glinting remixes of Future's "Turn on the Lights," Frank Ocean's "Thinkin Bout You," and Grimes' "Genesis."

There are the low-risk, high-reward productions he's done for rappers like North Carolina's Deniro Farrar, whose pendulous Hemsworth collab "Big Tookie" might be the gangsta-rap song of the year. At any rate, Hemsworth appears to be without genre boundaries, and that should yield great diversity on his forthcoming debut LP, Guilt Trips. With Cyril Hahn. 18+.
