With their first single, Social House threw their hat in the ring for a song to define the summer of 2018. The project of Pittsburgh natives Michael “Mikey” Foster and Charles “Scootie” Anderson, Social House released their debut single “Magic In The Hamptons” much to our and their now millions of monthly listeners’ delight. An undeniably effervescent jam that features the likes of Lil Yachty, it’s the sort of debut that an act could only dream of, so how did it become a reality?
While this is the duo’s first release together, Mikey and Scootie are no strangers to working together. Together the duo has produced and written songs for such A-list artists as Ariana Grange and Jennifer Lopez. That is not to say the story of Social House is another easy-coasting shift from songwriting to the spotlight. Upon first moving to LA, Mikey and Scootie found themselves couch surfing as they attempted to make a name and living for themselves as young creatives–a vision which would soon come to fruition a short time later.
During a chance session, the duo for the first time decided to create something, not for a prolific artist, but for themselves. In doing so, they unknowingly gave birth to the growing phenomenon that would become Social House. Taking their name from the WiFi at the production house they were living in, Social House hit the studio and brought to life “Magic In The Hamptons,” a lavish ode to true love. Enlisting the one and only lil boat, the track quickly became a sensation, to this date, having racked up over 20-million plays on Spotify alone.
“Magic In The Hamptons” is a chart-climbing number for reasons beyond Scooter Braun signing the rising hip-hop duo or a feature from Lil Yachty. It is a piece of unbridled joy that feels as much a classic hit as it does an inventive outing by the music world’s two newest and brightest creatives. Simply put, it’s magic. With Social House currently busy in the studio working on a wealth of new music that is sure to make the world a whole lot brighter, 2019 is poised to be their year.
To say 2019 is shaping up to be a massive year for Social House would be an understatement. With “Magic In The Hamptons” still racking up plays in the millions and the release of the equally impressive “Higher,” the duo is making their name own. From opening up on Ariana Grande’s ‘Sweetner World Tour’ to making their Coachella debut, Social House is a hip-hop dream come true.
