8.18.2017

Critical Praise

“The long-haired spitta is a promising young rapper who‚Äôs been growing steadily over the past couple of years.”¬†–¬†XXL

“The Connecticut-bred artist consistently delivers music perfectly suited for warm weather, with this new cut¬†arriving at an ideal time.”¬†–¬†Elevator Mag

“Stylish, with his flowing long hair, Felly is a unique part of the up-and-coming generation of young rappers.”¬†–HotNewHipHop

The Project:

A gifted young emcee with a predilection towards textured and lush instrumentation,¬†Felly¬†is a charismatic purveyor of melodic vibes. Navigating a wide range of styles and moods, Felly is an excellent tour guide into his sonic world on¬†Wild Strawberries, his latest project. A soulful and warm collection of tracks, Felly fluidly experiments with genres and mood on the project, providing a smooth baller’s anthem with¬†Bag Season,” charmingly reflects on his come-up on the laid-back¬†“Oceans,” and even tries his hand at dancehall with the bouncy and rich¬†Wide Angle,”¬†featuring an appearance from dancehall artist¬†Konshens.¬†Premiered by¬†L.A. Leakers,¬†Wild Strawberries¬†is a fun-loving and self-assured project from a rising young artist.¬†Featuring additional appearances from¬†Gyyps, Flex¬†and¬†Trip Carter,¬†Wild Strawberries¬†is a major statement from Felly, anchored by his¬†deep musicality and carefree persona.

A musical prodigy with a devoted fanbase and an ear for diverse beats,¬†Trumbull, Connecticut native Felly has already earned¬†over 52 million SoundCloud plays and attracted more than 63k YouTube subscribers. Last year, at only 20 years-old,¬†Felly headlined a 31-date tour that found him performing at colleges and venues nationwide. In the run-up to¬†Wild Strawberries, Felly shared two music videos: the¬†Highsnobiety-premiered¬†Bag Season,” which depicted a ramshackle poolside bash, and the psychedelic¬†“Wide Angle,” which found the young rapper traipsing through a dreamlike field of flowers and strawberries as the atmosphere morphed and changed color around him. The proper follow-up to last year’s hit¬†Young Fel¬†EP,¬†Wild Strawberries¬†is the¬†ideal record for the dog days of Summer ’17, perfectly suited for poolside BBQs or rooftop, nighttime smoke sessions.

The Background:

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 prepared for the release of¬†Wild Strawberries¬†which came out in August 2017.
