Be undeniable. Thats the message TJ Hickey delivered with his latest piece of work bearing the same name. The album is an eclectic compilation of phenomenal collaborations with talented artists and producers across the board. The self titled track featuring Devvon Terrell can make the hair stand up on your neck as the message is one most of us can relate to. Skip a few tracks deeper into the album and you will find ‘Like The Weekend’, a soothing collaboration with soulful singer Jared Evan and renowned hippy Mod Sun. And if you’re looking for the party anthem that you are accustomed to getting from TJ, check out track three, ‘Do It For The Story’, which was produced by the very talented Kavalier. The 13 track album also features Cam Meekins, Futuristic, and Jitta On The Track as well as some amazing producers.

Posted by BIGLIFE 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.

We rarely get to hear new work from Swedish producer Otto Knows, but every time we do, it’s worth the wait. His newest track “Next To Me” proves that point perfectly. An awesome vocal track by Simon Strömstedt can be heard throughout the song which has a nice feel good melody that slowly builds up with strings until it drops into a dance track that is impossible to ignore. This is going to be one of the songs that is remixed and sampled a lot by various artists this festival season. Give this track a listen and if you like it follow the buy link below to pick it up.

Just Juice, a young up and coming face in Boston’s hip-hop scene dispels his “Lavish” rhymes on us with his newest release. Gaining support from VMG’s own, Logic, as well as Mojo, Juice and co. spit semi-auto bars over this C-Sick certified banger. Juice has been on his grind for several years now and I have a feeling this track will land him the platform he deserves. If you’re feeling this one, feed your ears his free album, For The People.

Posted by jewcebox on January 13, 2015
After dominating the dance music scene for the past couple years, fans have been eagerly awaiting Hardwell to release a debut album and last month the Dutch pioneer announced the full tracklist for his debut LP, “United We Are.” To begin the monsoon of anticipation, Robbert van de Corput has released the first single titled, “Eclipse,” of which he played for Miami at Ultra Music Festival 2014.
Although deep house is having its time in the spotlight currently, Hardwell sticks to his guns and maintains his signature big room sound that fans have grown to love. The main stage veteran sends shivers down listeners spines from start to finish with classical strings, ear-numbing basslines, and expertly aligned synth harmonies to exhibit his musical mastery. This is the first taste that will have fans fiending more as we inch closer to the album’s release.
