STREAM: “The Power of Ideas” (Spotify)

Over the course of his career, Alex Fitts (AKA The Kickdrums), has been celebrated for his incredible dynamism as a songwriter/producer. He’s produced for such legendary artists as Kid Cudi, 50 Cent, K Flay, Lana Del Rey, Freddie Gibbs, and Slaughterhouse while maintaining a sizable cult following on the artist side over the course of his two full-lengths and two EPs. With the single release of “The Power of Ideas” today, Fitts puts both his classic hip hop production and ethereal indie rock sensibilities on full display. The track has a vintage summer shine that will magically transport you to a Brooklyn block party from the 70’s while maintaining a west coast vibe in large part to a guest verse from LA-based emcee, Blu. You can stream “The Power of  Ideas” now on YouTube, Spotify and most of your other favorite streaming services.

Since relocating from New York City to Spain in 2018, Fitts has experienced a creative renaissance that is resulting in some of the strongest material of his career. While his location doesn’t necessarily resonate in any overt ways on the new music, being freed from the pressures of New York City has opened up new channels of creativity for Fitts that have manifested in a blending of the best aspects of The Kickdrums catalog with new twists that are sure to keep his fanbase happy while exciting new listeners that are discovering the band. “The Power of Ideas” serves as the first sampling of this new sound, and a new EP is on its way this summer.

Quote from Alex Fitts (The Kickdrums):

“This track is about the perception of reality verse true reality. How easy it is to fall in love with the idea of something.”
