40 Watt Hype / Press

“When you hear 40 Watt Hype’s Strong Feet on the Concrete, you might wonder, “Is there anything this band can’t do?” You wouldn’t be the only one…..Like The Roots , 40 Watt Hype’s musical ingenuity is backed by content and message.””

Muses Muse

“…..it’s not surprising the vocals here are on point with the music, riding catchy hooks and then splitting verses that are inherently synchronized with the feel of the rhythm. The recording and production here are dead on as well, creating the vibe of a live show where every hand in the place is in the air.””

CD Baby

“40 Watt Hype returns to deliver instrument-laden sounds on its third studio album, Strong Feet on the Concrete. Tracks like the rap-critical “Controversy” prove that the group’s MC’s can rhyme.””

The Source

“Hip-hop neophytes have the underground buzzing. The band’s sound combines elements of Latin, soul and R & B, creating a fresh and commanding sound with tremendous crossover appeal.”

Complex Magazine

“What happens when some cats from Fresno, California combine Latin rhythms with R&B, hip hop, soul, y un vocalista bilingüe? You get the electrifying and unique sounds of 40 Watt Hype. From humble beginnings at a backyard party, to playing venues across the U.S., these guys have been creating a buzz all along the way. They’ve been conquering critics and audiences with a universal appeal, y música que refleja la diversidad de una sociedad multicultural. A full instrumental band backs lead man Aaron Wall, la voz de esta banda, both in English and Spanish. But this composer, instrumentalist, and vocalist producer is not a bicultural Latino. Wall is second generation Dutch, with a family hailing from Holland, quien desarolló un aprecio y afinidad for the Latino community and music he was surrounded by as he was growing up. As gringo as he may seem on the outside, when it comes to music, there’s no denying que tiene alma de Latino.”
