Hann - New Locks

“New Locks” is a high-energy excursion into the evolving sound of Litefeet — an underground dance

“New Locks” is a high-energy excursion into the evolving sound of Litefeet — an underground dance culture birthed in the streets of New York City. The phrase “Lock To The Top” which is chanted throughout the track is a reference to ‘Locking in’, a move native to the music’s accompanying dance style where performers administer an emphatic movement at the end of a series of steps to complete the combination. To employ metaphor, if a series of steps was a sentence, ‘Lockin’ in’ is the exclamation point at its closure that enlivens the tone of the statement. “New Locks” is the first release off of Hann‘s upcoming EP Unknown Genre, a project which aims to showcase a nuanced sound of Litefeet music.

“For our upcoming project, we wanted to create a new interpretation of Litefeet music by exploring how we could use melodies and vocals in new ways to deepen the sound while still keeping the same energy that the dancers love and hopefully attract new listeners to the culture.” – Chris Designs & Lil Live of HANN
