Hinx Jones Has “Nothing” & Everything in New Single

Hinx Jones will be dropping their long-awaited Soul Hop album this Friday, and today you can listen to their latest single, titled “Nothing”. The song discusses being happy while focusing on who we are at our core, and realizing what it really means to have great things in life. The song was produced by Lonegevity and features him on the first verse, with Gritts singing the chorus and second verse. Be on the lookout for a video for this single dropping later this week!

Purchase the single from Bandcamp.

Listen to Lonegevity’s New “Pleasure Yours” Instrumental

Even though he’s gearing up to drop a new project with Hinx Jones next Friday on October 2nd, it hasn’t stopped our own LONEgevity from releasing a freebie instrumental. The Indianapolis artist has a revolving series where he randomly releases instrumentals with a title that somehow has a worldly educational aspect to it. It’s titled LEARNINGS, and you can read a little bit more about it below, as well as listen to his new sample chopped goodness.

If you like what you hear, download it for a $1 over at his Bandcamp page.

LEARNINGS: Lonegevity’s Educational And Real Neat INstrumental Groove Series. This is an evolving series of loosie instrumentals that I’ll be sharing from time to time. Each song will have some sort of life-influenced educational aspect to it.

Listen to Hinx Jones’ new “PAINTED” track featuring Skittz

Hinx Jones is back with the second single from their upcoming Soul Hop album, in a single that features oft-collaborator Skittz. Many of you know Skittz from Cut Camp, The Proforms, and Beats & Breakfast. “PAINTED” takes a vocal sample from Skittz’ “EXISTENCE” track, and the beat was crafted with a boom-bap slap, soul sample, and synth bass.

The song kind of talks about deconstructing oneself to realizing the greatness in being who you are, and to continue fighting to be great. The essence can be best described by the chorus: “Life Love Letter you can write it exact – it takes a special kind of brush to paint your heart on the track.” The first verse is Gritts and the second is Lonegevity, who also produced the song. The third verse and chorus feature Skittz. Be on the lookout for the video to come in mid October.

Purchase the single from Bandcamp (pre-order and get this and “Let It Go” via download now) and listen below.

Listen to “Let It Go” From Hinx Jones’ Upcoming Soul Hop

Hinx Jones’ upcoming Soul Hop album will be released on 10/2/15, and today you can listen to the first single from the album. The song features a verse from rising Indianapolis star Sirius Blvck, and production from our own ILL Brown. Listen below, and you can purchase the single from Bandcamp (and pre-order Soul Hop as well).

Hinx Jones, the duo of Lonegevity and Gritts of Indiana, have been working on “Soul Hop” for the last two years – on and off between other solo endeavors. This being their third album, and sixth project as Hinx Jones since 2010, they wanted to do something a little different than their previous projects.

“Soul Hop” was made with a different approach than their previous projects, as their new themed album incorporates a lot more direct focus of intent, singing, and more so than ever promotes vibes and thoughts around bettering oneself. The production is generally a bit more heartfelt than aggressive.

The project has production from Lonegevity, ILL Brown, Maja 7th, Slot-A, and Mandog. Extra instrumentation added by Gritts on “Do Better”. There are features from Neak, Skittz, Pope Adrian Bless, and Sirius Blvck. The project was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Lonegevity.
