Meet the Kickdrums – comprised of producer/singer/songwriter Alex Fitts (Fitts) and dj/producer Matt Penttila (Tilla). Originally formed as a production/engineering team in Cleveland, Ohio – they’ve spent the last five years perfecting their craft behind the scenes, with production credits for Kid Cudi, Scarface & MGK – and producing remixes for Adele, Peter Bjorn & John, Wale & Kanye West.
With their focus shifting after growing tired of the redundant songs in rotation on television and the radio – the duo have come out from behind the mixing desk to bring us the fantastic new album “Meet your ghost” . During record of the album – Fitts dived deep into his alt rock roots and Penttila began experimenting with his love for electronic music. Fitts would spend his days penning songs and unraveling chord progressions, while Penttila would break down records and flip obscure samples on his drum machine. All the rules were thrown out the window. The end product would be mesh of alternative rock, soul music, and hip hop laid over heavy drum breaks and fuzzy guitars.
