Premiere: Duo Xuitcasecity Brings Summer Loving Vibes On 'Lead Me On'

"Lead Me On" is all about courting that special girl. 

Through electro-pop pulsating beats, the Florida-bred duo of Xuitcasecity are serenading a special young lady in efforts to court her on their latest single, “Lead Me On.” The song sounds like the perfect summer anthem, which at first listen, reminds you of tanned skin, sunny beaches and bright orange drinks.

The boys of Xuitcasecity, Mike Gomes and Cam Young, first came up with the concept of the song a few summers ago in relation to their experiences. “We actually recorded this song a few summers ago. It was a reflection of the current vibe we were feeling. Being out in the Hamptons for the first time.. away from home and feeling that first glimpse of what it’s like to be caught up in the life," they told VIBE via email. "Girls were leading us on and showing us more attention than we were used to.”

Xuitcasecity nurtured their talents while living in Tampa, Florida. The group formed after Cam reached out to Mike on Facebook in efforts to collaborate on a song together. After weeks passed, mike eventually responded, and as they say, the rest has been history. You can listen to their new EP, CXTY NIGHTS EP on here.

Premiere: Choosey And Exile ft. Aloe Blacc Yearn For A California Style Ride On "Low Low"

With mesmerizing west coast style beats, Choosey aspires for a low rider to speed past a gazillion California palm trees in as he raps about his wishes on “Low Low.” The song uses hopeful rhymes, an Aloe Blacc chorus, and a mariachi-infused instrumental by Exile finds him pondering how fly life would be if he had a low rider in his possession. It’s almost as if he’s trying to say “Life is but a dream," with a couple of verses.

The Southern California native is signed to Dirty Science Records, and focuses on making music that plays homage to his Afro-Chicano heritage. Additionally, he raps about the politics that come with his ethnic identity paired with the societal ills that make his existence harder, like gentrification.

“My biggest influences have been people who spoke from the heart, and what’s most honest about me is my heritage,” Choosey stated on a press release. “There’s a stigma that Black and Mexican cultures don’t get along, but I wanted to show the beauty in being a product of both.”

His forthcoming album Black Beans is slated to drop in March and will have production from west coast heavyweight Exile. “Oldies are a big part of Chicano culture on the west coast from the ‘50s to now. Choosey is born out of that. So with this album, we wanted to unify that sound with Hip-Hop,” Exile said.

It's been a long time coming, building the foundation to tell @kingChoosey Story. I am the soundtrack, he is the author of this aoutobiography called #BlackBeansLP https://t.co/ySg4ckxuc9

— EXILE (@ExileRadio) February 6, 2019

Ultimately, Choosey wants his sonic authenticity to catapult him into success with the admission of still staying true to his message. “I want to be amongst the greats and connect directly with people as a voice who spoke from the heart,” he said.
