Austin Fair – “Slide” (Prod. Hetriks)

By: Shamus Hill

The powerful duo of Austin Fair and Hetriks combines once again for a summer anthem titled “Slide”.

The Chicopee native has spent the vast majority of 2019 building up his arsenal of music, with “Slide” being only his second track to be released this year. Despite this, Austin Fair has steadily proven to be one of the most hardworking artists that the state of Massachusetts has to offer. No matter the time or day, you’ll more than likely find Austin at the studio working on his craft. The combination of his artistic talents and his willingness to put the work in have ultimately led to the development of a formidable artist that consistently delivers great music.

“Slide” is the perfect example of this, with the song being full of boisterous, mesmerizing energy that contains a high level of replay value. Hetriks does a truly incredible job at crafting an exhilarating instrumental over which Austin Fair floats with true grace. This pair has proven in the past that they possess a vast amount of chemistry between each other, and “Slide” only helps to reinforce this statement. Be on the lookout for what the Western MA representative has coming next as the year continues.

Austin Fair & Hetriks – ‘413’ [Mixtape]

By: Seamus Fay

Austin Fair is a workhorse. His undying supply of passion and wholeheartedly inspiring hunger towards making it in rap never goes unnoticed on our pages, and today, he’s back yet again with a brand new mixtape alongside producer Hetriks entitled 413. But it doesn’t feel like enough to simply say that this is Austin Fair’s return to Graduation Music – he’s back, but he isn’t the same as he used to be. This time around, Fair is brought forth with a vengeance, even coming with an improved artistry and clear ambition that he communicates throughout the tape. If there’s any collection of music that shows just how dedicated Austin Fair is to his art, it has to be 413.

That being said, the collaborative effort between the young talent and producer Hetriks on this one contributes greatly to the identity of the tape. The two find an emphatic degree of chemistry in which they operate and grow within, and by taking a few risks while maintaining the reputation and threshold of quality that Fair has become known and loved for, they join forces in the most impressive, productive ways possible. Each new song fits perfectly within the sonic sweet spots that the Chicopee representative has discovered, marking 413 as an undeniably consistent mixtape to kick the summer off with.

Austin Fair – “WALK” (Prod. Hetriks)

By: Shamus Hill 

Austin Fair is in full effect!! Dropping the first single since his acclaimed STARPOWER album release, this Hetriks-produced track is a banger that deserves your immediate attention.

For starters, the work ethic currently being displayed by Austin Fair and the rest of The HomeTeam is nothing less than admirable. Fresh off of a show in Amherst this past weekend, Austin just released “WALK” to remind everyone that he’s really in his bag right now. This man really said, “I do donuts in that hooptie, cuz I can’t afford the ghost”, as if he somehow telepathically knows my current vehicular situation.

On a more serious note though, “WALK” speaks to Austin’s current feelings about all of the work he’s been putting in, and how his dreams are beginning to manifest in front of him. He knows that the finish line is still on the horizon,  but the path towards that finish line is growing clearer and clearer with each move he makes. Aside from this, the beat provided by Hetriks really allows for Austin to bring all of these ideas together in a manner that ultimately results in a really well-executed song, so big props to the duo for playing to each others’ strengths here.

Show Austin Fair and Hetriks some love, and listen to “WALK” below.

Austin Fair – “LEBRON” [Prod. HETRIKS]

By: Seamus Fay

Austin Fair may be one of the hardest workers in the region with an overwhelming amount of hits in the vault and a consistent output of strong releases. With that being said, he has undoubtedly earned the right to flex many times over, and today he’s back on our pages to take full advantage of the opportunity. Here enters the rising talent’s latest single “LEBRON” produced by HETRIKS.

Aggressive in its production, ignorant yet intoxicating in its delivery, and memorable in its looming, confrontational melodies. All of these elements come to mind first when describing Fair’s latest release, and although it may not be what fans are used to, it’s certainly not something to pass off as just another song. Fair has the skills and charismatic ability to truly entertain listeners effortlessly, and I don’t see any ceilings in sight if he can continue to prove his wide array of stylistic abilities within rap by means of tracks like this. One thing is for sure: you can’t sleep on what has become an unstoppable wave, so give “LEBRON” a listen below.
