New artist 1942 Leel drops fun party vibe EP ‘Anejo Talk’
ATLANTA, GA – There’s a new artist out of Atlanta whose fanbase is rapidly growing thanks to his smooth, unique flow. He goes by the stage name 1942 Leel and his latest EP “Anejo Talk” is the kind of project that launches careers into the stratosphere.
Featuring eight songs that include the hit party track “Rerock,” “Anejo Talk” is a blend of upbeat songs and down-to-earth chill vibes that not only show off Leel’s versatility but also offer listeners something new and intriguing in the music industry.
“A lot of people in Hip Hop today might talk in their music about doing different drugs or money or girls or whatever,” Leel said. “But that’s not what I’m about. Me and my crew, we drink 1942 (a type of tequila created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the opening of Don Julio’s first distillery), and this album is all about drinking and partying and turning up. My sound and my style revolve around my mood, so some songs lean more one way than the other – sometimes upbeat and sometimes slow. I don’t have one set of sound or style. What I do have is music that when you listen to it, you’ll be surprised. You’ll never know what type of sound you’ll get until you hear it.”
The standout single, “Rerock” is a club song with an Atlanta vibe that also has notes of Leel’s Detroit roots. It’s up-tempo and definitely will get listeners moving to the groove, and the lyrics are simple in their exploration of all things that are flamboyant – from partying to drinking to having a good time and just living the good life.
Leel moved to Atlanta a little over two years ago but grew up in a city outside of Detroit called Mt. Clemens. Though he was always into music as a child, it wasn’t until his teenage years that he truly started exploring his own signature style. Over the years, he’s become known for a smooth, unique flow – a sound that can be heard on hits such as “Cr33d” and “Move,” which have garnered him quite a bit of attention throughout the Midwest. He’s had the opportunity to work with some of the hottest producers in the industry, including Jose The Plug, Damjonboi, and Marc Boomin.
“I really study everyone when it comes to music and how they operate,” Leel said. “On the Atlanta side, I like to listen to Future and Young Thug. I mostly listen to a lot of Detroit underground music like Payroll Giovanni, Babyface Ray and Peezy. And from those influences, I’ve created a sound that I think when people hear it they’re gonna vibe too it. It’s music you can play in the club or when you’re turning up with the gang. That’s the type of music I make and what I want to be known for – music that you can party too.”
Leel said he’s in the process of shooting a music video for “Rerock” which should release before the end of the year and at the same time also plans to release another single from the EP, with more releases in early 2021.
