Warrior Music (feat. Ekko) · Chasing Sky

Kinda like that Ellie Goulding dubstep-esque sound

Always impressed by a talented beatboxer . . . but over a drum & bass beat Wow, what a combo. Stumbled across Warrior Music’s Soundcloud a few months back and was blown away by every track, “Chasing Sky” in particular (along with “Middle of the Night”, so be sure to check that one out too!)

I love dubstep, but (personally) always to a certain point – here, Warrior Music has a really nice balance of integrating dubstep/drum & bass/vocals within one another, which kind of lightens the heavy load. However, I do wish he used Ekko’s beatboxing a bit more here, but hey, at least he got the ball rolling on a new trend […]

Pretty Lights 2011 Remix

Mashes up Radiohead x Nirvana x NIN with a whole lotta PL flavor

We’re finally into PL 2011 with a downtempo remix/mashup that takes on Pretty Lights’ signature sounds and remixes three classic alternative rock tracks in – Radiohead’s “Everything in its Right Place”, Nirvana’s “All Apologies” & NIN’s “Closer”. It may not be as bang worthy as some of his others, but it’s nice to see a more relaxed, chilled out vibe coming in. As much as he can pop it off, PL has some real mind numbing downtempo work, including probably my most favorite of his, “Solamente“.

Hit us up with some artists you’d like to see Pretty Lights remix for 2011.
I really wanna see a good Hendrix remix.

Dubstep Remixes of Rock Classics

Taking your pop's favorite classic rock and dubsteppin' all over it.

Planned on doing this for some time, but never thought I had enough. Well, when I first started compiling I definitely didn’t – but after a lot of research on YouTube, SoundCloud & beyond, I’ve come up with nine solid dubstep remixes of that classic rock we’ve grown up on.

Two rock legends I wanted to find were Jimi Hendrix & ZZ Top, but unfortunately there weren’t any quality ones out there. If you know of any, or any other dubstep remixes I haven’t included here, hit it up in the comments below!

Kid Cudi & Dot Da Genius · Perfect is the Word

Premiere track from Kid Cud & Dot Da Genius's new band

That WizardCud created a little hype tonight, premiering his first song from his highly anticipated rock-band with Dot Da Genius, 2 Be Continuum.

“Perfect is the Word” sets their first single off with an interesting twist. When I thought of Kid Cudi going rock, it put an image of Hendrix in my head (blame Erase Me) with a melodramatic rapper vibe at heart. But after listening to the track, it’s more like Hendrix’s LSD daze tripped into a shroomed out wallow.

Whatever kind of fucked up it is, Cudi’s new shit will grow on me soon enough – it always does.

The Fourth Annual Soundset (2011)

My love for the crowd and my criticism towards emcees

Like all festivals, events and any large gathering, the most interesting thing to watch at Soundset 2011 were the people. Ranging from the majority, punk-ass teenagers, to the older crowd with kids, Soundset grew to over 20,000 people this year.

I don’t know how many of you like to crowd watch as much as I do, but as someone trying to cover the event, most of my time was spent gazing at the mess of fans feelin the vibes off the performers: a majority of acts that many had not heard before and the headliners that brought us all together. As impressive as the headliners were this year, especially De La Soul, I wanna point something out about a few of the other acts […]

Frank Ocean · Swim Good

Bringin back that catchy 90's R&B beats

We’ve all seen, heard and felt the raw vibrations of ODD FUTURE and of course their main play, Tyler the Creator. Based out of LA, they have completely exploded via blogs & Twitter … beauty of it all now, eh Anyway, fellow LA friend, Frank Ocean, is bringing that old school Soul for Real kind of sound back that seems to have been drowned out ever since the dance scene blew up (not hating, just saying).

His beats are seductive – take a listen to another one of his, “Lovecrimes”, which totally vibe hand in hand with his lyrics. This track, “Swim Good”, had me by the balls since the first time I heard it […]

Mixes & Mashups of Soundset 2011 Headliners

Whole 'lotta Big Boi, the best De La Soul and some interesting Atmo

Soundset 2011 is right around the corner, so I thought I’d gather the best remixes & mashups of the lineup. Well, I quickly found out that people don’t really mashup underground hip-hop, so I turned to the top three headliners – Atmosphere, Big Boi & De La Soul.

De La Soul had a decent amount, but the good ones weren’t easy to find (e.g. Emancipator’s mash). Big Boi, as expected, had well over any of the others and wasn’t easy to narrow down to seven (yes, it was hard to narrow it to 7!). Lastly, Atmosphere was by far the most difficult to find. I don’t know how in hell […]

The Weeknd · Rolling Stone

dude can really hit the high notes

Ooooo! – just in time for the long weekend we get another Weeknd treat. It’s pretty damn safe to assume this is the first single off The Weeknd’s next mixtape, Thursday, which is suppose to be dropping sometime soon… Either way, it’s a fresh tune from the ever sexier Abel.

Also, wanted to point how much the beats make his music. Abel has one smooth voice with just the right grime, but I see too many talented vocalists paired up with the wrong beats. The Weeknd, however, gets it right over & over again. rare. Keep it up.

Chiddy Bang · Guinness Flow

Holding the world record for longest flow

Of course we had to hear some cuts from Chiddy’s Guinness World Record for the longest freestyle rap, coming in at 9 hours, 18 minutes & 22 seconds. I kept up with it for the last half and there were definitely many of those Chiddy witty one liners. Someone should make a damn story out of all those rhymes! ;)

It’s good to see that Chiddy Bang is swellin’ to Status. Can’t wait to hear what’ll be on Peanut Butter & Swelly, which releases this Friday (the 27th) – especially what Xaphoon has in store for us!
