Australian house project known as LJ Hawk just dropped a new track called “High”, an infectious new housey tune that features the voice of a Sydney-based soul/R&B/jazz singer known as Ash. Ash’s spirited vocals, combined with the beautiful synth work and a catchy melody creates an uplifting, euphoric track that is a must listen. Here’s what LJ Hawk had to say about it: “I had been tinkering with a lot of sounds and song’s in the studio, doing my best to explore each of the elements in the hopes of learning more about what I love listening to in other people’s music, and then working it into my own. When I first heard Ash’s voice on some demo’s, I knew her style & sound would align really well with some of the deeper house track’s I had been working on.” They got together in the studio and created this masterpiece, set to be released on Sunstroke Records on September 2nd. Check out “High” now!

LeeLee Haxi (formerly ‘Leah Haxhi’) has been dropping loose singles for the past couple of months and is finally blessing us with a full project next month. ‘Pull Up’ is the first release off of the debut, entitled ‘Until Then’, and its chill, late night riding vibes makes it a perfect summer track. Infusing hip-hop, trap and even elements of grunge, ‘Pull Up’ is a great illustration of how amorphous, unpredictable but at the same time comforting LeeLee’s sound can be. If this melodious trap experimentation is indicative of the sound on ‘Until Then’, the project is going to be a must listen. Be sure to listen/share ‘Pull Up’ and to follow LeeLee on her socials @LeeLeeHaxi to stay up to date with more singles and videos off the debut.
