There are no events to show at this time.
The KickDrums is comprised of producer/singer/songwriter Alex Fitts (Fitts) and DJ/producer Matt Penttila (Tilla). The two met while working as engineers at a studio in Cleveland. They shared many common interests and had reputations as skilled producers. They decided to unite, The KickDrums were born and they’ve perfected their craft behind the scenes producing records for the likes of 50 Cent, John Legend and Kid Cudi and remixing for Adele, Ben Harper, Peter, Bjorn & John, Richard Ashcroft & Kanye West.
In 2007 The KickDrums shifted focus to their own music, distancing themselves from working with outside artists. Fitts dived deep into his alt-rock roots and Penttila began experimenting with his love for electronic music. Fitts spent his days penning songs and unraveling chord progressions, while Penttila broke down records and flipped obscure samples on his drum machine. All rules were thrown out the window and the ultimate outcome is a mesh of alternative rock, soul, and hip-hop laid over heavy drum breaks and fuzzy guitars – Meet Your Ghost.
The KickDrums will be touring endlessly in support of the album. Stay tuned for dates.
