Dubber Side of the Moon (Preview)

by Easy Star All-Stars - releases October 26

Dub Side of the Moon is a reggae tribute to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Since it’s release in early 2003, the album has gotten marketable success and the group’s been touring in support of it since. They also went on to cover other famous albums by Radiohead and The Beatles, but none grew to the success of Dub Side.

Recently, the group enlisted some of the best dubstep DJ’s to remix Dub Side of the Moon to an even dubbier() dub (dubstep), rightfully titled Dubber Side of the Moon.

I’ve listened to a couple tracks so far and it seems like it’s another unique take off Pink Floyd’s original. I’ve only gotten to check out three songs and, although not all topped their predecessors, there’s one that may have pulled it off. […]

Smell It (Starfucker Remix) by Copy

One chill-ass tune.

While on my daily Facebook stocking rounds, I came across a Starfucker’s post on Josh Hodges’s remix of “I Can Smell It”, originally by Copy.

Let’s just say there’s a big damn difference between the two. I was originally going to post Copy’s version along with the remix, but it really wasn’t worth it. Props to Copy for the original, but it’s got nothing on Josh’s remix.

I find with a lot of electronic beats, there are usually some sick samples used, but when they put it all together it falls short of a stand out track. It’s not just about taking/creating good beats, but how you […]

The Good Life by Chiddy Bang

"Swelly, swelly, Swelly, swelly, Swelly, swelly, Swelly"

With The Preview right around the corner, I decided to post a preview of The Preview.

Chiddy Bang’s first single off their upcoming EP dropped just over two weeks ago. I’ve had some time with the “The Good Life” and it’s definitely a good show at what’s to come.

I really think Chiddy Bang has serious potential at making it big. First off, they are signed under Parlophone Records, which houses some great acts, including Gorillaz, Radiohead and The Chemical Brothers, just to name a few. Second, the duo has the character and personality to hook a wide audience. So much hip-hop today lacks character/personality, and with Chiddy Bang’s cunning play on words and finely laid out beats, I expect these two to […]

Work it Out by Grap Luva

Produced by Joc Max & Recorded by Damu the Fudgemunk

Caught this thanks to K-Murdock who’s worked with Damu on Panacea in the past and I’m sure the future (big fan).

I’ve followed Damu the Fudgemunk’s works for a few years now, but as for the other two, Grap Luva & Joc Max, I’ve only heard ‘em through word of mouth, although I’m sure I’ve run into their work before. But strictly speaking, “Work it Out” is one hell of a smooth & soulful hip-hop track. Lately, I’ve been seeing a lack of soul in a lot of hip-hop (not all), and it’s good to see something soulfully fresh.

Grap Luva is reportedly releasing a 7-track EP later this year and “Work it Out” is a good glimpse in what’s to come. I’m lovin’ Grap’s tone against the instrumentals the other two whipped up. He’s best advised to keep Damu & Joc Max on the beats for his upcoming EP. Shit will kill.

The Recluse (Nero Remix) by Plan B

My new theme song!

I was surfing SoundCloud a few days back, at work, when I ran into this beaut’. It took me sometime to catch the lyrics, but when I did, I realized they spoke the words that I’ve felt for so long.

I do love to rage on the occasion, but sometimes I like going a couple days without seeing anyone – I just get so much more done! And a lot of my friends/family can’t quite understand that. I guess now I can just point ‘em to this song :)

The only thing I don’t like about “The Recluse” is Plan B’s rap towards the end. I’ve dealt with a lot of hip-hop artists from […]

Stuck on an Island by ¡MAYDAY! (Preview)

Mayday's payday comin' October 12.

I got a press advance of Stuck on an Island a few months back (so sweet), but held on to it for a while until closer to the release date.

I’ve been a big fan of ¡MAYDAY! since their self-titled release back in ’06. In fact, it was one of the reasons I created the site in the first place – they were my second post, right after DJ Frane. Since then I’ve been waiting for the next LP and it’s finally here – well, soon for y’all :p

So what do I think of the album I’m not going to get into it too much until it’s released on Oct. 12, but there are definitely a few stand out tracks. It may not be up to the standard of their first album – I’m always bias to […]

Wolfgang’s 5th Symphony by Wolfgang Gartner

Mozart raving on MDMA.

This dude totally stole my idea!… and just about a few million others. I’ve always wanted to remix classic works. But it’s all about pulling it off, something I haven’t done… yet, and Wolfgang Gartner has done just that. Throughout the piece I get a little lost at times, but I quickly catch up – he seems to stray from the original a little too much for my liking.

Bassnectar introduced me to this dubstep, electro, house-type music. I’m really starting to dig the glitchy reverberations that I’ve never really heard before. I’m still fairly new to the genre/various sub-genres, but it sure makes for good workout music.

Anyone got some suggestions on good workout music

North Coast Music Festival 2010

Checked out the Friday set, wish I saw it all!

It may’ve taken me two weeks to get this out (lazy lazy), but here’s a look at Friday’s set at North Coast Music Fest ’10.

Our site just turned one years old on September 3rd, so I thought I’d take a little vaca to Chicago and check out the North Coast Music Fest. I decided to only go Friday because a friend of mine couldn’t make it and all I really wanted to see was Pretty Lights.

We got there a little late – I’m not too good with directions – when we ran into will call, which was a fucking long wait. Well, we snuck up to the front and finally got in after […]

Lord Lord Lord by KanYe West

He's one arrogant son of a bitch and rightfully so.

As foolish as KanYe can be, the man is right in many respects. A couple months back I was listening to KanYe’s rant on a UK radio station (featured below), and I’ll admit I was skeptical of him every word he said.

Now that I look back on it, I’ll admit he was right for the most part. Yea the guy is arrogant, but at the level he’s at, who wouldn’t be It would take a very humble man to control an ego like that.

The only thing I disagree with KanYe in the video is when he talks about the Bible. I’m no “Bible enthusiast” – in fact, I’m not even Christian – but no KanYe, you would not be […]

False Hopes by Doomtree

"I'm trying to free up them wings, trying to bare some teeth."

In an interview with Ryan Olson on The Local Show, Ryan talks about some of his favorite music from the Midwest, one being from Doomtree’s very own Cecil Otter.

The song he talks about, Traveling Dunk Tank, is off of Doomtree’s first album, False Hopes. I talked about one of False Hopes‘s singles, Flex, a year back, but I had to showoff the rest of the album, thanks to Ryan.

Unlike Doomtree’s latest self-titled album, False Hopes is set up with one hit after another. It’s just one of those […]
