West was in London to headline the Wireless Festival. During his time in the city he jumped behind the booth at a late night venue and reportedly played 20 new tracks for the private party. A few local residents were able to hear the music and mentioned the experience on Twitter and Instagram.

The tracks were referred to as  “dark,” “hellish,” and “ground-shaking” by local DJ Jason Powell. There is no confirmation that the music Kanye supposedly presented is from an upcoming project, but those descriptions are similar to the ones other sources have used to describe Kanye’s next album. One told Billboard Ye’s latest album tracks are “a mixture of soul samples and tamed ‘Yeezus’-esque darkness.”

Producer and Kanye collaborator Evian Christ stated Ye was asking for tracks with a sound “a bit like Otis Redding, a bit like Mobb Deep” for his Yeezus follow-up. Rsonist of The Heatmakerz told AllHipHop.com the production team sold a track to Kanye last year that was “like an ‘Otis’ [off of Watch The Throne] type of feel –  ‘Otis’ on steroids.”
