    Free music is good. Free, good music is better. That's the ARTISTdirect.com mantra.

    Brooklyn-based producer/songwriter/musical jack-of-all-trades Alex Fitts, aka The Kickdrums, has released "Higher," the first track from his latest project The Higher EP.

    The 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 EP demonstrates 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 EP, thanks to inspiration from Dee Goodz with whom Alex had tremendous chemistry with in the studio, drives more than earlier production efforts from Fitts. This EP shows 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.

    The KickDrums and Dee Goodz will be doing a special performance at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn at midnight on December 14 celebrate the EP release.
