I love the great big world that is the internet. Thanks to it, I’ve discovered so many incredible artists, musicians, books, etc. It’s also exactly how I stumbled across Stonehardt.
Residing in North Hollywood, California, Stondehardt is a LoFi hip hop musician whose music transports you to another dimension. With his wide range of sounds mixed with beautifully flowing beats, it’s easy to see why I was hooked from the start.
His newest single New Sadness, came out in June, and I really love the overall flow and punchy bassline you hear throughout. It’s smooth; it’s chill with the perfect amount of head bopping when I listen to it. Another thing I love about this song and Stonehardt’s music in general; is that you feel good listening to it, but you can listen to it at any time of the day, and it will be enjoyable. In the morning, with coffee or cruising down an open road, it really is a vibe.
I had a chance to chat with the mind behind the new single which dropped this past June. Check it out below and be sure to give it a listen here.
