Sound Fx - Touch the Sky

Maddy McFly
Still Dreaming EP

An older man may have done more living than a teenager, but life’s joys and pains, triumphs and struggles are the same no matter how long you’ve been on this Earth. Today, DJBooth newcomers Sound FX are here to show (and prove) that age isn’t a factor when it comes to putting your struggles to music. Produced by group member Maddy McFly, and the first drop from their recently released Still Dreaming project, Touch The Sky is an uplifting and inspirational track that bears the imprint of an old-school feeling, along with rhymes from the other half of FX, DuPree. Honestly, had I not been told they were both nineteen I would have never been able to guess the Riverside, CA, duo’s age; their music doesn’t reflect the stereotypes about younger folks in hip-hop.  We can only wait and see how their songs will sound in the future, but with a sample like this, I would put money down that the group will be able to shine for time to come.
