With a tone set for subliminal sadness, LeeLee Haxi goes against the grain with her new trap tinged R&B hip-hop enthused project Until Then. With a unique style, LeeLee creates a sound perfect for kicking back and getting lost in some therapeutic thought. It’s clear she has been keeping an ear to the streets as she has been crafting her sound. Be sure to keep your eyes and ears on her.

LeeLee is not new to Fresh New Tracks, but this is the premiere of the first full mixtape project from the NYC singer/songwriter, featuring a song produced by non other than Monsta Beatz Music. Check out her latest single Pull Up which released this past Thanksgiving on iHipHop’s A3C Vol. 6 Mixtape. She has some more heat dropping soon and is heavily featured on Young Roddy and Trademark da Skydiver’s album, Family Business dropping this friday, and also featured on veteran producers Shelco Garcia and Teenwolf’s upcoming record Sky High on Mixmash Records coming December 12th.

 

House | MalLabel and Eko Zu Team Up For Powerful House Original “Let Me Fall”

Posted by on November 17, 2016

MalLabel is a San Fransico based level showcasing several new releases per week, the latest being an Eko Zu release, entitled “Let Me Fall” paired with a music video, which you can find above. The music video is more of a visual accompaniment than a full-on story, but the vibe fit. The feel is trippy and enjoyable regardless, fitting the vibe of the original.

Eko Zu impresses me with their style and branding, they are a trio, with a dark theme and some members wearing mysterious masks. Not your typical solo DJ here.

“Let Me Fall” is hard not to enjoy, the beat sets a nice tone that’s easy to get into, while the vocal takes the experience to the next level.

DO SOMETHING

Future Trap | “Felicity” produced by Leat’Eq, Wanna Wake, and featuring Haley Gorman Puts The “Bass” In Future Bass

Posted by on September 21, 2016

Daily Earfood has been on role when it comes to finding small artist with big sounds, they’ve done it again with the release of “Felicity”, a song `that proves this trio can stand on their own feet – a breaking point for artists who seem somewhat new to the dance music game as a living.

I hope Leat’Eq and Wanna Wake work together again, future bass is a very saturated market/sound right now, but they’ve found a way to approach the genre freshly and deliver something that goes above and beyond the call of duty. Haley Gorman is the strings that pull the package together though – very soothing style here.

Fresh off his new EP Palante, Rell The Soundbender has been on fire as of late. As one of the most active producers you’ll come across, Rell is churning out consistently high energy tracks. This time around, DJ and producer out of Panama, Navaz, attacked Rell’s already spectacular track “Criminal,” with his own unique style of tribal heavy tones and tech house grooves. Allowing an alluring rhythm to sway the track in his way, Navaz brings forth a pallet of compelling sounds. Lay back and enjoy the vibes!

Interviews | Meet One Of LA’s Hottest Progressive House DJs: Varun

Posted by on July 22, 2016

Varun is one of LA’s quickest rising progressive house artists. If you are thinking this is Above and Beyond, think again. This dude goes hard and his releases speak for themselves, delivering heavy-hitting tracks with strong melodies. We go to dive into Varun’s life as a DJ/producer in our up-close and exclusive interview with Varun.

Where do you think the direction of progressive house is heading?

Varun: It’s tough to say. I love Progressive House but the scene is definitely changing. There are a lot of new styles of music that are coming out and people are loving it. The biggest shift I’ve seen are these more percussive and noise driven drops (almost seeming a bit random at times). Some of it is a bit much for me but some of it is executed pretty damn well.

Interviews | Bricks Break’s Down His House Roots, Timing, Future Plans & More In Exclusive Interview

Posted by on July 19, 2016

Bricks has a classic LA story but with some genuine depth to it that’s just likeable, frankly. In this FNT interview, Bricks breaks down where his house roots came from, why he makes what he does (which is fluid dark hip-hop-influenced house that totally suites 2016, check out previous posts on our site), and so much more. Read all the details here.

How would you describe your style?

Brian: I’d describe it as a collection of all the styles that have influenced me through out my life. It’s combination of House, Miami Bass and Hip Hop. I add the groove of house to the raw 808 miami bass sound, then work in some vocal chopping and analog 80’s synths, and out comes up the Bricks sound.
