Alex Van Allen, Albany, NY-based producer and rapper, appears with his first official release, ‘Fading Out’, now available through all major online music stores.
The new single, meshes a finger-picking guitar part – played by Van Allen – with classical strings, and a thumping lofi hip-hop drum kit. A feature verse from longtime friend and collaborator, Kip Kid, appears on the track, as both rappers speak metaphorically through the changing of seasons. The two MC’s rhyme of past failures, and personal growth, with a deconstructed Henry Burr vocal sample, from 1909’s ‘I Wonder Who’s Kissing Her Now’, bridging the gap between their verses.
Van Allen is currently working on his debut album ’Alexithymia’, slated for a mid-2018 release.
