Rather than falling in step with trends or passing fads, Oakland-bred, Los Angeles-based artist Christian Blue moves at his own infectious pace. Whether it be on the woozy, slurred "Frontside" or on his latest single, "Pink Soda," Blue sets himself apart as an artist keen on making waves rather than getting caught up in the shifting current.

"Pink Soda," in particular, is a track that wastes no time in distinguishing itself from anything out there, existing as a nebulous fusion of unorthodox hip-hop, skittering production, and alternative flourishes. Carried largely by Blue's distinctive delivery, which sees the rising Los Angeles artist shifting gears from hypnotic, slack jaw repetition to a hard-hitting, acrobatic flow, every moment of the standout track exudes an impossible to ignore bravado.

"I made 'pink soda' because I really wanted to capture the feeling of being inside the summer pool party into a whole song, turning up during the summer and kicking it with the people you love. Is definitely my most electric and playful song yet," shares Blue on the atypical summer anthem.

And while it's easy to lose the messaging behind a track that leaves such a strong impact from the outset, at its core "Pink Soda" is a response to massive upheaval in Blue's life. Taken from his yet-to-be-named forthcoming project, "Pink Soda" and what's to come is a praiseworthy chronicle of Blue uprooting his life, making his own way in a new city, and dealing with all the hate that came along with it.
