House | Kanye West – Deep/Slaves/Mercy (SomeOneHad2DoIt Edition)

Well, here we go. Another anonymous producer on our hands. At least that’s the way it’s been billed and pitched to the masses. I can’t blame these producers for posting anonymously. Fans are close minded and will turn on you fast if you release something they’re not accustomed to. SomeOneHad2DoIt steps up to the plate to put his “future house” spin on Kanye West’s signature tracks with impressive results.

Do we have another ZHU on our hands? I’d argue it’s too early to tell. The track is good but not great. What I don’t like is their aesthetic. Using Kate Upton (who’s built like a rectangle) isn’t my cup of tea and cheapens the song in my opinion. Further, it’s less impressive from a creative standpoint now that many are attempting to follow the model that Jake Udell largely pioneered. Just my two cents.

Criticism aside, I’m sure this will show up on Oliver’s “Heldeep Radio” soon enough.

Deep House | Julio Bashmore f. J’Danna – Rhythm Of Auld

Posted by on November 11, 2014

This is a very under-appreciated track. Featured on The Magician’s “Magic Tape 46” Julio Bashmore’s latest offering titled “Rythm of Auld” makes use J’Danna’s exceptional vocals to create a time capsule of a track that transports you to the feeling of being in an underground 70’s disco at 3:00 in the morning. Put on your bell bottoms and platform shoes, Julio Bashmore’s new single will take you there. Be on the look out for Julio’s album coming next February. Shout out to Broadwalk Records. Big Life out.

Hip-Hop | Twas The Night Before Blogmas (FNT Poem Edit)

Posted by on December 24, 2011

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a blog post was stirring, not even a Deadmau5.
The stockings were hung by Big Life with care,
In hopes that the blogfather soon would be there.

The bloggers were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of must-downloads danced in their heads.
And ATexas in her ‘kerchief, and Mach in his cap,
Had just settled their brains for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
GruBeats sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw a rave bash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to Avicii below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and W8 with tiny reindeer.

With a throwback old track, so lively and quick,
I knew in a flash that it must be DJ St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles his bloggers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

“Now Mach! now, W8! now, BigLife and Scoop!
On, Middy! On, ATexas! On, Sev and Jewcebox!
To the top of the blogs! It must be Ludacrismas!

GMoney spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the inboxes, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the blog world he rose!

He sprang to his sleigh, to the FNT team he gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a fresh new tracks good-night!

Mashups | 5 And A Dime- Can I Have Some Bass With That

Posted by on October 1, 2010

Let me tell you something. It’s pretty hard to consistently put out quality music. Even I give Rick Ross a break here and there. I can’t expect greatness ALL the time. Perhaps I can start expecting it from 5 And A Dime though. He certainly hasn’t let me down yet. By the way, Happy Birthday my dude. Oh yeah, and Alex… try to behave yourself with Big Life this weekend. Also, shout out to Lamda Chi at USC for sending in this sick picture.
