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.

You saw her Hozier “Take Me to Church” cover drop here a month ago. Now Leah Haxhi takes you to her LahLahLand of Music once again with her cover and video of this up-tempo ballad- the perfect marriage of vibrant vocals and prominent violin counterpoint. The track features a totally fresh, trance-like beat created by producer Mike Irish and original violin melodies written and played by Leah which further bring out the beauty of the way the violin fits into the original Clean Bandit version. You will be movin and grooving—seduced by the beat, vocals, and strings—along with the added visual element added by videographer Jermaine Isaac of Emerge Visuals.

Dubstep, Hip-Hop | VVS1 – Pearl Harbor

Posted by on March 8, 2012

VVS1’s “Pearl Harbor” was released a few months ago but I only recently stumbled upon it. The only reason I feel the need to post it now is because the track is really THAT GOOD. VVS1 consists of emcees Soupa and Dean Swift, singer Renzo, and producer/DJ Mike Irish. Their sound is a perfect combination of dubstep and hip hop. They are currently prepping their debut project together and if it sounds anything like “Pearl Harbor” then it will surely be a must download. Check out their first single “Pearl Harbor” below and become a fan of theirs on Facebook.

House | Drake – Take Care ft. Rihanna (Mike Irish Remix)

Posted by on December 3, 2011

Okay, I’ll admit that I have had Drake & Rihanna’s “Take Care” on repeat for days now. I love that song. So when I got sent this house remix of the track, I wasn’t sure what to expect. On reflection, I do realize now that the track was just waiting for a producer to make a House remix of it and Mike Irish did just that. He keeps all the great elements of the original and added a little something extra to make the song fit for any dance festival. This is a must download.
