Abstract Hip-Hop | Take a trip to “Israel” with Chance the Rapper and NoName Gypsy

Posted by on August 12, 2015

Simplicity at its finest. The throwback melody, the talking instead of rapping, and back and forth all make for one of his best releases this year. Word is that Chano has his solo project in the works, sans Social Experiment. Give this one a couple listens and reflect, this is real thinking music. Enjoy.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Chill, Electro, Electronic, Hip-Hop | HiFadility Calls An Iso With Lauryn Hill On His Edit Of “Ready or Not”

Posted by on June 26, 2015

HiFadility dropped another exciting edit, an isolation of Lauryn Hill’s vocals from The Fugee’s “Ready or Not” track with a very luxurious hip-hop/world instrument electronic sound.  What really makes this track worth supporting is the thoughtfulness involved in the arrangement of quality sounds, and the attention used in choosing the vocal arrangement.  HiFadility is part of a movement that is bringing consciousness back into popular culture.

HiFadility, whose tagline is “peace, love and prosperity”, seems to ask for intention and awareness out of life that he also likes to deliver within his music, allowing him to create really intricate and interesting pieces. Before releasing this track, he asked himself the question of why he decides to make, release and engage in the music industry.  He replied with the idea of: “What does make creating music worth the while is the mystery.” Later that night, at the release of the Lauryn Hill track, he simply posted an infinity sign, “?”, indicating the infinite nature of our being and sound, the thrilling mystery of music, and how it magically touches our soul.

The ability to make chill bangers, songs that are laid back but still get you pumped up, is pretty unique, so make sure to check out this track, it’s just in time for the summer feels.  HiFadility will be releasing more videos and tracks in relation to this concept project, The Queens EP, over the duration of the summer, so be sure to follow HiFadility on his social media, soundcloud, tumblr, twitter, for more gems.


Abstract Hip-Hop, Albums, Artists, Chill, Freestyle, Pop | Leah Haxhi Hits Hard with Summer Single- “Fade”

Posted by on June 21, 2015

You’ve seen Leah’s unique covers here on Fresh New Tracks before, but this time NYC singer/songwriter Leah Haxhi drops her first single “Fade,” with music produced in Brooklyn by Mike Irish. The track mixes minimalistic piano with jam-sesh vibes to create a natural, catchy feel that blends pop, R&B, hip-hop, and even subtle jazz elements into a chilled groove, ready for the hot city summer. With a June 21st release date, “Fade” is the perfect summer anthem, setting the tone for “driving down the highway” and blasting music while “everybody sings along.” The single is paired with high quality visuals from the hands of Matt Phipps, filmmaker and creator of SkatersAtlas.com.

Leah says “I wrote this song last year on my birthday. I was in the studio free-styling and picturing myself flying down the highway with my boyfriend at the time just listening to music on the way to the beach, fading away into that moment of complete contentment and happiness. This song is an expression of that feeling, no matter what you’re doing in life.” Be on the lookout for more tunes from Leah, as she continues the countdown to her debut album release later this year. Be sure to follow her on Soundcloud as well as @LeahHaxhi on social media for info on her latest shows, music, and releases.

Abstract Hip-Hop | Chance the Rapper, Lido, and Towkio Join Forces to Drop One of the Best Songs of 2015

Posted by on April 8, 2015

The combination of the people on this track was a precursor to just how good this track was going to be. As much as I expected out of this song, it surpassed any and all expectations. The beginning with Lido’s chorus then slows down into a beautiful synthy piano to compliment Towkio’s flow then switching to the juke style beat to let you reminisce just how good Chance’s flow is over that type of beat. Bliss. A group of young individuals who are ahead of the artist curve, and all are paving the way for themselves to solidify their stay in the music industry. Look out for Towkio’s mixtape coming out soon, Lido’s LP, and Chance’s SURF project with the SOX. Good music is on the way so rejoice! In the mean time, let this hold you over.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop, Videos | Christian Deshun Capitalizes On Kendrick Lamar Taking Instrumental

When Los Angeles Based Christian Deshun first heard To Pimp A Butterfly by Kendrick Lamar a weird sense drifted over him. Upon reaching “Momma”, Christian realized that K. Dot had used an instrumental that he released last year on his EP SMPLCTY. It was on a record titled “Thank You”, which was produced by buzzing producer KNXWLEDGE. But instead of it bringing him down and feeling haste, Christian had felt honored that him and K. Dot have the same ear sort of feeling as a pioneer. “If K. Dot liked this now, and I recorded this last year this sort of makes me ahead of my time as an innovator”, stated Christian.

Well two weeks after this debacle, Christian released a video titled “Undisclosed”. This was recorded at a time when Christian and his Friends where financially broke and hanging out in a decrepit building off the beaten path. But even though they were financially unstable, they were intellectually rich. The meaning “Undisclosed” came from the fact that you couldn’t find this house even if you tried, it would not register in a GPS device.

For now the future looks bright for the budding star out of LA. Hoping to put Louisiana on the map via Los Angeles he definitely carries the character, drive, and personality to attain these goals.

Abstract Hip-Hop | Appleby – Drinkin’

Posted by on January 22, 2015


Listen up and listen good. Appleby has been grabbing my attention with each of his few but powerful releases. Today we welcome Him and his brand new single Drinkin’ to FNT. He brings a new and different sound with each new song, and Drinkin’ is no different. Bee actually had a quick something to say about the song:

“The concept and act of drinking is a newly formed habit of mine. Introduced to me last year through an adventurous relationship that ended in mutual silence. Drinkin’ gives insight but reserves the details for a future release.”

What impresses me so much with Appleby and his sound is the artistry behind it. Whether it is the hooks, verses, or production, everything builds together in fantastic harmony. Coupled with Appleby’s fantastic lyricism, his sound is something that will be around to stay. Get to know Appleby and his sound. Also Bee decided to give out another track “Scars in Waiting” which also will help you get to know Appleby. Enjoy and look out for more to come.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Chill, Electro, Videos | Hozyboy – Woods

Posted by on October 20, 2014

Too be honest, this dude came out of nowhere. One minute I was aimlessly looking at nothing on the internet and the next I was the most stoked I’ve been in a while to say the least. At first it was just the music video, displayed above, that turnt me up. On my Reddit feed it read “VISUAL MINDBLOWING VIDEO & MUSIC”, “Wait for the watermelon to explode after the asian man plays the flute”, and “Cartoons, nature, and asian man, and a watermelon. Honey for your eyes” so I was intrigued – which he definitely wasn’t lying once I got to actually watching the music video. F****** brilliant. I was then so stoked off the music video that I found a SoundCloud link and clicked it instantly. Not only is “Woods” a vibing, feel good beat, his other compositions are crazy impressive as well. Hozy is 100% worth the look with other dope songs like “You Just Got Abducted by Some Turnt Up Aliens” and “Retro Heartbreak“; It’ll be exciting to see what this aspiring artist will come up with next.
