Tonight, at midnight, The Kickdrums
will be performing a preview of The Higher EP
with Dee Goodz. The Brooklyn-by-way-of-Cleveland producer/singer/songwriter Alex Fitts pushes out tracks that infringe on the boundaries of multiple musical genres - secured in hip-hop and electro, but with a tenacious infusion of heavy alt rock.
To celebrate tonight's occasion, The Kickdrums threw together a Friday mixtape for our readers - one that's as genre-bending as the curator himself.
1. "Higher" - The Kickdrums X Dee Goodz
Latest single off my new project with my friend Dee Goodz. Looking forward to playing this live tonight!
2. "As The World Falls Down" - Popeska & Anna Yvette
Good combo of EDM and pop music. Love her voice.
3. "Nobody" - Rockie Fresh
My homie from the Chi' did his thing on this one!
4. "Flight Facilities" - Clair De Lune
Just some fly me to the moon music.
5. "Just What I Am ft. King Chip" - Kid Cudi
Rad song from some fellow Clevelanders.
6. "Motor" - Sebastian
French mosh pit music. Whats not to like?
7. "Get Off" - METZ
I love how heavy these guys get. Glad to hear a not so "soft" indie band.

This song def speaks to me. I know wheres he coming from - lol.
