While you may not be on an iTunes first name basis with Alex Fitts AKA The KickDrums yet, you should that he's been involved with making a bunch of tunes that you probably are familiar with. The Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter/producer has lent his talents in some form or another to artists like Lana Del Ray, MGK, Rockie Fresh, Scarface, Slaughterhouse, Casey Veggies...the list goes on. Known for crossing genres in a single track and filling mixtapes with edits that reflect his ambidextrious style, Fitts is shaping a music legacy akin to that of Moby or Butch Walker.

His newest release Thinking Out Loud (due out tomorrow) further pushes the limit of The Kick Drums sound with all the elements of ambient, electro, rock, and hip-hop genres, but this time around the record has a laid-back vibe. We think the 10 song body of his new work is the perfect soundtrack for painting, walking through the city, or just sitting back with some candles lit and an iTunes visualizer (yes we get wavy). Our favorite jam is "Brave Radar" which has a late-'90s vibe, really every song on this record draws from a different place. Check out the whole collection of new tunes below and get them HERE tomorrow. Follow The Kick Drums on Facebook HERE and listen to all of the remixes HERE.
