Kanye West · Mama’s Boyfriend

A throwback to that pre-Dark Fantasy vibe

After Kanye hit up Facebook headquarters in July of last year with an a capella of “Mama’s Boyfriend”, we finally get to hear the track with full productions from, who’s rumored to be, Madlib or Q-tip (but who knows).

This is definitely a throwback to Kanye’s older sound and is probably the reason why it wasn’t on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Whatever whoever is sayin, it’s good to hear this style of Kanye pop up over his progression in music.

DJ BAHLER · Love Me

Mashin' up GAYNGS & about a dozen more tracks

Can’t believe how many tracks are weaved into this, but even so, it comes out sounding like one solid mashup. With a heavier bass, ominous tunes and even more experimental sounds than GAYNGS’ original, “Faded High”, BAHLER’s “Love Me” is one heavy mashup that doesn’t rely on pop vocals to make it a success – a success that it is.

Elzhi · Lifes a Bitch

Elzhi's tribute to the legendary Illmatic

In 1994, one of the best debut albums of all time, Illmatic, was dropped by Nasir Jones, aka Nas. World renowned producers DJ Premier, Q-Tip and Pete Rock all took turns in the studio making beats that have become anthems for most hip-hop lovers across the world.

Jason Powers, better known as Elzhi from hip-hop group Slum Village, decided to pay tribute to the legendary rapper’s first studio recorded album by referencing all the same beats and even some of the same lines, but over the stories and struggles of an emerging 21st-century artist […]

Uzi Octopus · Let It Fall Aside (feat. Raw Poetic)

Another side project from Restoring Poetry in Music

Uzi Octopus is a side project from a long admired hip-hop band of mine, Restoring Poetry in Music (RPM). Not quite sure when the project’s gonna drop or really any more information about it – they really need to get their ass goin’ on the whole online marketing thang – but I know it just finished up, so expect a release date soon.

“Let It Fall Aside”, the first single to hit the ‘net, features RPM’s very own MC, Raw Poetic. I gotta imagine he’ll be on the entire album and, hopefully, P-Fritz will lend some backup vocals, as well (amazing voice).

Until the release, check out a few of RPM’s stuff and another side project gone legit duo, Panacea.

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 […]
