The Kickdrums are like utility men for a sports team, they play multiple roles and their efforts, while not too well-known, are pivotal in a team’s success. The Kickdrums is a team assembled of two versatile musicians in Alex Fittz and Matt Penttila, who have worked with artists like 50 Cent and Kid Cudi but have recently shifted focus on hip-hop production but with heavy drum breaks and fuzzy guitars.
Recently they released a mixtape for this April’s Coachella Festival. In their roles as utility men, they remixed 40 songs and put in a little of The Kickdrums flair, improving most of the songs through the varied talents they bring to these songs.
If you want a great 50+ minute mix I highly recommend to download and view the tracklist. Below are 3 more songs from The Kickdrums that I thoroughly enjoy as well.
The Kickdrums – Perfect World (remix) ft. RZA
The Kickdrums – Animal
Kanye West – Good Morning (The Kickdrums Remix) (Ft. Big Sean)
The Kickdrums debut album, Meet Your Ghost, comes out June 28th through Last Gang Records. For more on The Kickdrums, follow on: facebook / twitter
