88GLAM returned earlier this year with a single titled “Swim,” further announcing their second studio album CLOSE TO HEAVEN FAR FROM GOD. A month later, rumors began flying that the Toronto hip-hop duo — made up of Derek Wise and 88 Camino — had departed ways with XO Records and Republic Records, soon revealing that the project had been delayed. While many fans were disappointed by the news, 88GLAM reinvigorated hopes of a return last week with the announcement of New Mania. After delivering lead single “Dance for Me” earlier this week, the duo has now shared New Mania in full.

The mixtape features 18 new tracks from the duo, with the only feature coming from Yxng Bane on “Brand New.” Across the project, they continue to hone in on their psychedelic take on R&B and trap, with 88 Camino supplying sultry sung lyrics and Derek Wise contrasting with his signature flows.
