“more than open to pour as much as honesty as he can into his work”


“channelling a casual cadence that suggests the confidence of a hip-hop veteran… brooding and melancholic in delivery, but still maintaining a bounce carried by Aundrey’s repeated ad-libs and percussive thrum”


“an artist who deserves all the notoriety he has been receiving recently because his music is emotional, passionate, unique, and concentrated, all in the best possible ways”

Inland Empire rapper-producer AUNDREY GUILLAUME. today shares his latest EP COLD SUMMER. A playlist by AUNDREY GUILLAUME. via drink sum wtr. LISTEN TO THE EP HERE.

Bringing inspiring lessons of growth, vulnerability, and wisdom to his 2022 follow-up, ENERGY, now we see the young rapper ripping off the bandages from old wounds and laying it all out there with the upcoming COLD SUMMER. EP, a colorful, experimental, and impressive experience that cements AUNDREY GUILLAUME. as the real deal.

Illustrating his ability to weave across multiple sonic spaces, AUNDREY traverses between passionate melodies and gliding production to channel a love story, sharing that “cold summer is a love story that takes the listener through an adventure between each track as if you were playing an actual video game. The artwork created by the amazing Brandon Black symbolizes many of things such as a Sword, a Heart the number One, and also a snowy Mountain which then all ties in together throw out the EP.”

Highlighted today is the EP’s focus track “oowaa.,” of which he continues the love story charm, “’oowaa.,’ produced by J Myth, Bregma, and myself is a very uplifting track that takes you on a love story adventure. With jaw-dropping visuals, this record is definitely one if not my favorite track to date”. “oowaa.” joins the previously released jungle bass-led ‘dungeon.‘ and the vibrant ‘zip’, alongside three brand new tracks “chaos in the office.” “needy.” and “tell me when.,” all of which lean into stories and cautionary tales that come straight from the heart.

Part of GUILLAUME.‘s own “healing process”, his debut documented the journey that brought him to today, grateful to his late older brothers and his formative years spent in the group Knowname, formed with friends after graduating high school. Both experiences taught AUNDREY essential skills in life and music.
