New Fresh City: Summer 2024

Diego Artea

Four Fresh Tracks For Your Summer

For the past couple of years, KUTX host Aaron “Fresh” Knight has kept a running playlist of some of the best new releases from Central Texas hip hop and R&B artists called “New Fresh City.” There is so much good stuff on there we can’t share it all, so here are four of his favorites from the past few months. We’ll be back throughout the year to share more from the playlist but you can always follow along with the info below.

Find the New Fresh City playlist at the bottom of this post and be sure to catch Fresh on-air every Saturday morning 10a-2p and Saturday night 10p-1a on The Breaks


Wes Denzel: “Never Left”

Former KUTX Artist of the Month, Wes Denzel is back with a new single that has his unique brand of poshness and bragadocious raps, but smooths things out  to let you know that he’s officially back.

Lara’: “Like Dat (ft. Ambre)”

Lara’ formally known as Eimaral Sol, returns after signing a new record deal with a sultry, seductive single that gives what I would say is a peak inside of her love life, at least it lends to one’s imagination. Lara’ brings New Orleans singer Ambre along on this audio fantasy.

Troy NoKA: “Favored”

The Austin native and Grammy award winning producer/artist, Troy NoKA keeps his Troy Tuesday series going with a vibrant conscious tune in the same vain as Kendrick Lamar’s hit single “Alright.”

Zay Wilson: “Slow Game”

After being on a few reality television shows such as, Netflix’s The Ultimatum and Perfect Match, among others, Zay Wilson an Austin native decided to try his hand at music, and surprisingly he came with a nice country style tune.
