EP: The Kickdrums & Dee Goodz – The Higher EP

December 19, 2012 |  by  |  MIXTAPES

Brooklyn-based producer/songwriter/musical jack-of-all-trades Alex Fitts,
a.k.a The KickDrums, has released his latest
project The Higher EP. The Higher EP is a creative collaboration between
The KickDrums and Dee Goodz, a Tennessee spawned rapper/producer
that is sure to join the long-list of artists The KickDrums have collaborated
with just before they break into the mainstream.

The Higher EP shows the continued maturity for Fitts both as a producer
and as a vocalist. With each successive release, The KickDrums have
been able to grow leaps and bounds as a production force. The Higher
EP, thanks to inspiration from Dee Goodz with whom Alex had tremendous
chemistry with in the studio, drives more than earlier production efforts
from Fits. This EP puts Alex’s ability to balance hip hop beats and the sort
of ethereal synths and guitars usually reserved for the most revered indie
rock artists. When the production is combined with Dee Goodz next-level
delivery, the result is a release that feels as though it foreshadows the next
step in the progression of Hip Hop.
