New music from rising talent is always a breath of fresh air in today’s oversaturated music market. Today, that breath of fresh air is coming courtesy of Vulture Theory, Meylan & HAWD HITTA. I say this as the Los Angeles-based Vulture Theory, St. Charles multi-instrumentalist Meylan, and DJ/Producer HAWD HITTA have united for their first collaboration. Together, the trio have set the scene ablaze with their latest release, ‘HOLD UP‘. This electrifying hit was born from a recent studio session during Meylan’s visit to Los Angeles. It goes without saying that this is a breathtaking composition of synergy and talent.
‘HOLD UP’ doesn’t just fill the room; it commands attention. Showcasing Meylan’s captivating midi-patterned synth work fused with Vulture Theory’s meticulous enhancements, the track radiates with irresistible energy. HAWD HITTA’s masterful arrangement seals the deal. Furthermore, his production prowess infuses the song with catchy vocals and solid percussion, delivering an auditory experience that’s a feast for the senses.
When asked about ‘HOLD UP’, Vulture Theory commented: “The process was amazing from start to finish, the time we spent on this track really helped nail the arrangement and overall flow of the elements“. Then adds, “It’s been a joy to play shows with Club Level Records and it has also been a blast to get music to this level with the help of Meylan“.
“Overall, we are excited for this track to really reach an audience that can appreciate vocals just as much as the thoughtful production that went into the making of this masterpiece.”-Vulture Theory.
Additionally, Meylan shared the following: “I’ve been raising two kids back in Illinois with my wife while pursuing a lot of independent passion projects along with my job teaching music and shooting video. So it was a breath of new air to travel out to LA and produce music of a different genre. Yet at the same time, I felt at home, in large part because I was with one of my cousins, but also because these two artists share the seriousness and determination that I have for the craft. The way our ideas and strengths pooled together in the studio was quite seamless. It was productive; we made a lot in a single day. I’m thankful that I had this opportunity with them, and hope to work with them again“.
Lastly, HAWD HITTA shared: “The glory goes to God with this release, as it was a blessing to have a cousin so talented like [Robert Didier] “Meylan” join in on some studio sessions back in April. Dustin DePalma-Shields (Vulture Theory) is always a pleasure to work with, he’s got serious talent and will be on the mainstage in no time, and it was great working alongside him in the process of arranging this tune“.
He continues: “It’s been amazing to work with Markus Braun and the wizard Ian Edson on Club Level Records but also our media guy in Shane Jacobs, an absolute legend with the camera“.
“The future is looking amazing for Meylan and Vulture Theory, they really are something else when it comes to making hits, and I know we will have Meylan back from St. Charles, Illinois in no time. I’m grateful to have worked with them both.”-HAWD HITTA.
