Lord Felix is a name that’s been featured on the Graduation Music site a countless amount of times, and each of these instances he’s only delivered new musical highs. The Brockton-native released “Nothing” a few months back, with it being one of our favorite releases of 2018. We’re overjoyed that Lord Felix tapped in Daymian Mejia to assist in forging the visuals for “Nothing”, with all parties bringing their talents together to knock this one out of the park.
The music video for “Nothing” features some of Lord Felix’s closest friends and collaborators all enjoying the delightful track in a car. Perhaps one of the best ways to enjoy music, the video does a phenomenal job at encapsulating the exact feeling that can be derived from this song. Lord Felix’s versatility is put on a pedestal here, and both the song and music video are something that the city of Brockton, and the state of Massachusetts as a whole, should be extremely proud of.
We’re only 10 days into 2019, and people like Lord Felix are already beginning to raise the bar for artists all-over. The visuals for “Nothing” are proof of just how talented the members of Van Buren Records truly are.
Watch the official music video for “Nothing” below:
In all my time writing for Graduation Music, one series of music that has constantly pushed the ball forward and impressed is Lord Felix’s Voice Memo series. It is with this series that Felix explores his creative ambition and keeps it as real as possible, letting fans know when he’s trying out new styles and subsequently so, adapting his artistry in ways that always seem to keep the Brockton native just one step ahead. Today, we hear the newest voice memo #310, “Wings”.
Produced by fellow Brockton native Ricky Felix, this track uses the imagery of leather jackets, as seen on the artwork, to communicate an inimitably smooth bout of charisma. The flows throw jabs back and forth with such catchy instrumentation, and as a result, Felix’s latest shows us that he has continued to develop his sound, even since we last heard him on the well-received single, “Nothing”. As always, Brockton is making its case as to why they have one of the best scenes in Massachusetts, so be sure not to sleep.
Ever since my very beginning days writing for Graduation Music, Lord Felix has been one of my favorite artists out of Massachusetts. His remarkable level of talent and clear creative vision prove to be amidst the most refined that I’ve seen during the two years that I’ve been running the site, and with each and every single release, Felix never ceases to impress. He’s only getting better as the clock ticks, so much so that stardom feels like nothing more than a matter of time for the Brockton native. Today, we welcome Lord Felix back to our pages with a brand new single entitled “Nothing.”
Produced by Donato, this track finds its identity by way of a dance-worthy, groovy instrumental and a generous helping of addictive melodies. “Nothing.” comes across as a song possessing immense replay from the very opening notes, and once paired with Felix’s love-led lyricism, it only gets better from there. The young artist pursues a deep level of affection with dreamy visions of running away alongside the one you love, voluntarily leaving it all behind regardless of the cost or consequences that may arise. The lyrics get hopelessly and impulsively lost in the heavenly instrumental, and by the end of the track, the only appropriate response is to smile, click repeat, and start dancing again.

Brockton has been and continues to be one of the main hotbeds of upcoming talent in Massachusetts right now, and amidst the finest of the native artists is standout act Lord Felix. His eclectic style fights inner demons with a brutally honest pen and rebellious sound, doing so in such a way that there truly doesn’t exist a boring song in Felix’s catalog. The truth is, his music signifies incredibly special meaning and it’s only a matter of time until the world catches up. That said, the rising talent hits our pages today with two new songs: “I Don’t Like You” featuring James Guild and “Right Now” featuring Jerm Sherman.
At face value, these two new offerings best showcase the way that Lord Felix’s artistic and emotional growth go hand in hand with one another. He directs the energy of struggling toward the mic without losing any passion in translation, and the way that he balances anger with vulnerability is nothing short of artful. “I Don’t Like You” and “Right Now” may be completely opposite in terms of pace and mood, but packaging them together is an ingenious move by Felix as they perfectly show the duality of character that he embodies in a way. Whether it be external or internal pain, the Brockton native knows how to soundtrack both quite accurately, and for that, we need to be thankful. These songs can help people through some tough times.
Listen to the two latest from Lord Felix at the link below:
“I Don’t Like You” Produced by: Tedd Boyd “Right Now” Produced by: Basekeli
Brockton artists Lord Felix and Stefan are marked most notably by their unparalleled skills in evoking raw emotion through music. It seems as if every beat, every flow, every lyric, and every cadence is hand-selected in order to make the themes of a given song come across in the most impactful way possible, and quite honestly, this is achieved with pretty much every new song. Today, we see this talent come to fruition on the emotional single, “Messy Wrists”.
Produced by PSOUL, this track explores the depth of emotion that one might feel at a low point in life. The imagery of messy wrists haunts the listener in a way that highlights the internal struggle behind such feelings, and Felix and Stefan detail their demons with skillful lyricism and captivating vocal posture. That being said, I don’t know many other artists in Massachusetts creating such genuine manifestos of emotion as these two Brockton natives are right now. Their collective prowess is certainly nothing to look right over, so be sure to pay attention to “Messy Wrists” in all of its brutally honest glory.
It’s always going to be a great day when we receive new music from Lord Felix, and today, he’s here to hit our pages with an incredibly unique and hard-hitting new offering entitled “You Should’ve Killed Me When You Had The Chance” alongside Clyde Black. Here at Graduation Music, Felix is a frequent flyer and a regular name, so we have had the privilege of seeing him achieve immense growth throughout the past year and a half or so as an artist. That being said, in all honesty, I believe that this song is only further proof that Brockton has a star on its hands. Make sure you pay attention as we delve further into it.
Produced by Wonderlust, this song takes to an eclectic, electronic instrumental to provide its own energy, thriving within a sonic environment that doesn’t cease to entertain from the first second to the last. Only adding fuel to the fire, we hear both Felix and Black join forces on this one in an incredibly complementary manner. Their individual styles bounce off of one another with ease, and all in all, this is a remarkable release that proves why Lord Felix is on a rapid path to the top.
Don’t sleep, listen to “You Should’ve Killed Me When You Had The Chance” at the link below:
I’ve heard the name Leo The Kind before, but not until now can I say that I truly understood the range of his talent that he possesses so effortlessly. Surrounded by a beautiful, mountainous atmosphere and nothing but the calmed sounds of his own music, Leo is here to show us all just how special of an artist he is with a live performance of his song “Pieces of a Puzzle”. And in all of its synth-led glory, this is certainly not something to sleep on.
Shot by Lord Felix, Shelby Smilezs, and Moses Besong, the environment in which the video is shot plays to its sound with perfect chemistry. “Pieces of a Puzzle” has a naturally infectious sound, capturing a similar feeling to that of the fresh air and naturally illustrative scenes that we see in this performance. From the visuals to the music itself, Leo The Kind crafted together an absolute masterpiece, and for that, he deserves nothing but praise. Boston has yet another source of bountiful talent, and he goes by the name Leo.
