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.

Alternative, Indie | Generationals – Put a Light On It

Posted by on October 9, 2013

I’m not one to jump to Alternative / Indie right off the bat but after my boyfriend turned me onto the Generationals, I simply could notttt get enough. Definitely a band for the masses with feel good sounds and exceptional lyrics; wouldn’t be surprised if I start hearing them on the radio soon. Enjoy one of my favorites from their most recent endeavor ‘Heza’.

There is no doubt that Mike Stud has been on the rise since he released his freshmen mixtape A Toast to Tommy, in the beginning of last October. It achieved great success debuting at #3 on the iTunes hip-hop charts and #66 on the Billboards, sheesh. Afterwards, Mike embarked on his first Nationwide tour that rocked 25 cities in 2 months, selling out the final 6 shows. Along the road he dropped numerous singles and a handful of videos to accompany them. With each song he progressed and tried new things, even taking an attempt at singing on “Is It Worth It” and “Boyfriend”, and it wasn’t too shabby. Overall, the growth and progression of Stud’s movement is something many new artists dream of and hope to achieve.

When I spoke with Mike Stud in the beginning of March he gave me the heads up that he would be dropping a new single every couple of weeks, and he wasn’t lying. Not only is he dropping singles, he’s continually raising the bar with each release. If you didn’t notice, on Mike’s last release “Is It Worth It” he tried his hand at singing and I’ve got to admit it was pretty good. Then I heard this song and he totally blew me away with it. He remixed Justin Bieber’s hit song “Boyfriend” and I’d say this is some of his best work and definitely a stepping stone in his career. Be on the lookout for this guy because a little bird told me he’s got some crazy industry moves on deck!
