I have been killing my speakers with Trap EDM. For those of you who don’t like EDM that’s too “soft”, you should definitely check out Trap. Think hood joints mixed with the elements of EDM that we love and add some serious bass to ride out to. ”Trap For Me” is one of my favorite examples lately but I have REALLY been banging Flosstradamus A LOT as well. And I just downloaded a bunch of their stuff and will (if I remember) post my favorite.
where’s the fun in forever?
so while doing some research for an internship interview, I came across this video by Bare called ‘Altitude’. The song + visuals gave me chills. It reminds me of a cross between Jay-Z ‘On To the Next One’ and Autoerotique ‘Turn Up the Volume’.
The progression of the track is crazy and makes me feel like I took the out-of-order elevator at the back of a skeezy hotel. Its so awesome! Enjoy.
the only things im going to say about this are:
Grammys 2013 Predictions:
Best Urban Contemporary Album
Best R&B Vocal Performance
Best R&B Album
If he doesn’t win at least one, I quit.
Swedish House Mafia.
One Last Tour.
What does this mean? Well, today I bought 2 tickets for the last ever Swedish House Mafia tour and concert date for March 9th, 2013. The tickets sold out in under ten minutes. The end of SHM means a slew of new EDM DJs can come into the industry as EDM junkies will be looking for a replacement to fill the void. Not to mention that as established DJs move up in billing, newer acts will EVENTUALLY be able to take the place of some of the great new people we like that are becoming really big today. I think this is musically historic as international music has been trending toward the dance sound for years but there haven’t been any major EDM retirements. So now, I believe, we will have one of the first new-wave vintage EDM situations. And to be a part of the last show is monumental for me. I have already been thinking of resolutions as if its my version of New Years.
In any blog I do, I will have a JoJo post. To me, she is one of the most underrated, underserved artists ever to show up, then disappear…only to show up, and disappear again. And when I say disappear, I’m talking about those semi-in-the-know. I always know what she’s up to. ’In the Dark’ is a sensual and grown-up introduction to the new Jojo (or as she would probably say “first time you are seeing the real Jojo”). Anyway, its sick. Shes sick. She has a new lead buzz single out right called ‘Demonstrate’ and its freaky. Here are some of the most notable songs from her discography:
