Hamid J has today released his new single titled ‘Do You Get This Feeling?’. Old school dance meets nu-school groove with a colliding energy meant for the club. Hamid is clearly an artist not afraid to express himself and show others how it’s done. Structured chaos for the choreography and that sound from the golden age of pop is what we need at this moment for this summer of (hopefully) coming out of a pandemic and getting things back to normal. At least there are songs like this to give us the freedom of normalcy. Yes, we do get this feeling.
Hamid J is a Los Angeles-based synth-pop artist and songwriter, who is seeking to reclaim control over the narrative surrounding artists hailing from disenfranchised strata of society, like the LGBTQ community, with his music. With his approaching debut full-length album, cycle of a relationship, Hamid J presents poetic lyricism, covering topics such as heartache, frustration, and pain, found within romantic relationships. The record is co-produced by Matt Cady, who was choreographer for pop legends, such as Madonna, Britney Spears, Ed Sheehan. With stunning vocal production by Charlotte Martin, Hamid J excels as he brings to life pop-electronica in a way that no other artist has in recent memory.
Hamid J’s discography is unique and unapologetically himself; as a proud Iranian-American, LGBTQ artist, Hamid J seeks to break the shackles of oppression and is continuously striving for other avenues to present his authenticity and personality. Inspired by Michael Jackson, Prince, George Michael, and Robyn, Hamid J brings a new twist to the pop classics. As an Iranian-American artist who grew up in Germany, Hamid J has numerous cultural and political perspectives that continue to shape his music into something that is palatable and relatable to all. Seeing himself as a story-teller first, Hamid J aspires to use music to tell his stories.
