Cover | LahLahLandMusic – “Real Love” by Clean Bandit [Cover]

Posted by on November 18, 2014

You saw her Hozier “Take Me to Church” cover drop here a month ago. Now Leah Haxhi takes you to her LahLahLand of Music once again with her cover and video of this up-tempo ballad- the perfect marriage of vibrant vocals and prominent violin counterpoint. The track features a totally fresh, trance-like beat created by producer Mike Irish and original violin melodies written and played by Leah which further bring out the beauty of the way the violin fits into the original Clean Bandit version. You will be movin and grooving—seduced by the beat, vocals, and strings—along with the added visual element added by videographer Jermaine Isaac of Emerge Visuals.

Cover, Videos | Timeflies Tuesday – Burnin’ It Down

Posted by on November 12, 2014

Imagine Jason Aldean had the ability to insert a Sean Kingston hook and then drop a verse mid song – essentially, that’s what Cal and Rez just did with his latest hit, “Burnin’ It Down”.  For those of you still resistant to country music, ride this segway and give it a shot.

Holy shit, I can’t believe I just endorsed country music.  Past Grubeats would kick me ass right now.

Tickets are still available for Timeflies second show in Boston next week on Thursday, 11/18: GRAB TIX HERE

Cover | A$AP Rocky – F*ckin’ Problem (Xavier Dunn Cover)

Xavier 620x564 A$AP Rocky   F*ckin Problem (Xavier Dunn Cover)
We’re betting you’ve never heard of Xavier Dunn, because before this, neither had we. I’d call this a cover, but it’s more of a reimagining than a standard cover. Australian based artist Xavier Dunn takes A$AP’s huge 2013 hit and turns it into an elegant rendition that even A$AP would respect.

Cover | North Coast Music Festival Lineup + Tickets

Take a good hard look at that lineup and try to find a reason why you should not attend the North Coast Music Festival in Chicago this upcoming Labor Day weekend. It may seem a long ways away and something you could put off on getting tickets for, but with a lineup like this, you’re going to want to buy tickets ASAP Rocky. Celebrating its 5th year anniversary, the lineup features the legendary Snoop Doggy Dog, Kid Cudi, Cashmere Cat, What So Not, and even the man himself JODY HIGHROLLER, to name a few. After witnessing it for myself last year, it only has me craving more and more. Think about it, but not for too long because this this thing will sell out, I promise. Holler at the ticket link below and prepare yourselves for a wild weekend with amazing music.

Cover, Videos | Mikey Bolts does “The Monster” in Family Guy Voices

Listen, I’m no Family Guy groupie, nor have I ever heard of this dude Mikey Bolts until my buddy introduced him to me over the weekend, but he has some serious talent.  If you breathe Oxygen, you should be able to recognize at least two of these voices.  Do I think it’s kind of strange how his facial expressions look eerily like the cartoons themselves?  Yes, without a doubt.  Do I wish I could pull off those impersonations?  Yes, without a doubt.  Any way you cut it, this Bolts kid has skills.  Check out his YouTube channel for more Family Guy covers.

Cover, Mashups, Videos | Timeflies Tuesday – Red Hot Bruno Peppers

Timeflies throw it back, but also keep it current with a mashup cover of Scar Tissue x Grenade.  After a recent announcement that the RHCP would be added to the likes of Bruno Mars and whatever other Super Bowl surprises, this could be a realistic preview of what’s to come Sunday night. Taking one of the best songs of the best decade, the 90’s, and lacing it with Bruno Mars’ 2010 hit, this is certainly a unique release for Cal and Rez.  On top of indulging in this Tuesday release, grab an earful of Laidback Luke’s remix of Timeflies recent single, “All The Way”, below.
