Videos | Kinetics & One Love — Time Machine (Feat. Neon Hitch) [Music Video]

Posted by on May 2, 2014

It’s been a year-and-a-half since we last heard from Kinetics & One Love, who have been steadily building a reputation as one of the most talented and promising duos in the genre on any scale. Always conceptual in their artistry, 2012’s terrific album You Are Not Alone solidified elements of their philosophical identity and developed an iconic sense of self, one that many artists are unable to conjure throughout the span of a career. Now, after a brief hiatus writing and producing for other artists (Neon Hitch, Melanie Martinez), they’ve returned with an even deeper and more fully-developed vision and aesthetic, continuing their streak of new music releases where a sense of progression is invoked. It’s expected at this point, and in a genre where progression isn’t commonplace and often first albums are a rapper’s most heralded, it bears a lot of weight that this group simply can’t make new music without “development” being a part of the dialogue.

“Time Machine” features the powerful vocals of Neon Hitch, and ups-the-ante for up-and-comers with its video by Hourglass Films, setting the bar for depth and quality at a level that may have never been surpassed before by independent artists. The track features Kinetics as innovative and visionary as he’s ever been on the mic, invoking the sentiments of Nikola Tesla, using the second verse to detail elements of his poignant death, from the hotel room to the “do not disturb” sign on the door that he left prior to his passing. One Love, too, shows his maturity as a producer here, not just inviting the listener to enter this world, but keeping them there. While his production here isn’t as much in the forefront as it has been on songs like “Vecina Del Mar” and “You Could Save Us All”, he’s become so adept at using the intricacies of his production to complement his vocalists, and its often the subtleties of his work that are the most resonant.

After a few number one dance hits and a notable feature on Gym Class Heroes’ “Ass Back Home”, British singer/songwriter Neon Hitch’s stock is at an all-time high. After spending some time in Kinetics & One Love’s NYC studio, they created this smooth reinterpretation of Miley’s hit “We Can’t Stop” (in addition to some other material to be released soon), complete with improved lyrics and a downtempo, horn-driven beat from One Love that shows off the budding beatmaker’s tremendous versatility. Check it out, and be sure to connect with all three artists below.

Mashups | Gym Class Heroes – Ass Back Home ft. Neon Hitch (Brenton Duvall Remix)

Posted by on January 24, 2012

Brenton has been slowly getting back on his grind lately, sampling, reworking, and remixing hits.  Explaining that sometimes he just wakes up and the music comes naturally, banging out tracks like this in one day, if he’s motivated, he’s on point.  Here he samples “Get the Money,” by PANTyRAiD, keeping the vocals from Gym Class Heroes’s lead, Travie McCoy.  No word whether Brenton is working on an official project yet, but he’s definitely still making music as it comes to him.

Hip-Hop | Gym Class Heroes-The Fighter

Posted by on November 8, 2011

Their third single to drop from their new album, the Papercut Chronicles II (being dropped in 1 week). It’s an infusion of One Republic’s Ryan Tedder and Travie McCoy going at it on one single. The catchy hook is poppy as always and I’m not as impressed with it as I am with the Neon Hitch collaboration. With their collaborations with Adam on Stereo Hearts, Neon Hitch with Ass Back Home and Ryan on this, I’m intrigued to see if GCH did any solo work on their album. C’mon Travie, sometimes less is more!

Hip-Hop | Gym Class Heroes ft. Neon Hitch- Ass Back Home

Posted by on November 3, 2011

Although you have to buy it on iTunes, (or find it on mediafire) this song is your classic Gym Class Heroes. Neon Hitch throws down for the chorus giving us a melodic rock-infused tune. This second single is probably is trying to live up to Stereo Hearts and is featured on their 5th LP. I’m excited to see what else comes up from the LP.
