A connoisseur of summer jams of all shapes and sizes, Felly is the ideal soundtrack to your barbecue and pool party. Taking a stylistic leap into the world of dancehall, the Connecticut native crafts “Wide Angle,” a Caribbean-flavored come-on. Recruiting Jamaican emcee Konshens for a scene-stealing guest appearance, Felly takes a trip into a psychedelic paradise in the Mass Appeal-premiered video, with green rolling hills, wild strawberries, cellophane flowers, and a number of beautiful women. The background of the video swells and changes color in time to the woozy instrumental as Felly and Konshens enjoy themselves in the phantasmagorical surroundings. “Wide Angle” is the latest video from the upcoming Wild Strawberries, Felly’s upcoming project.

Born and raised in Trumbull, Connecticut, Christian Felner aka Felly grew up immersed in hip-hop music. Using passion as his guide, Felly taught himself how to make beats on a laptop in his parent’s basement. The aspiring rapper began to make a name for himself as a producer by selling said beats on YouTube. After relocating to Los Angeles, the rapper released two solo projects Waking Up to Sirens and Milk and Sugar. The projects featured Dreamville signee Ari Lennox and frequent collaborator, GYYPS. As his music caught more attention, Felly began working with more talented producers resulting in the release of his mixtape This Shit Comes in Waves. The mixtape’s success resulted in a 31+ city headlining tour and a SXSW appearance. Recently, Felly has relocated to New York City, where he has been gearing up for the release of his next album Wild Strawberries due out later summer 2017.
