Electro, Pop | Silver Medallion & Dave Edwards – American Girl 2.0

Posted by on September 4, 2013


Silver Medallion and Dave Edwards decided to revisit an older original track of theirs, and revamped it with new production and new lyrics to bring us “American Girl 2.0.” Silver Medallion is that dude that will undoubtedly have a hit record at least once through out his music career. It’s only a matter of time for him and his team to branch out to radio, and the mainstream. I’ve always been a fan of his edgy production choices, his vocal melodies, and lyrical word play, and “American Girl 2.0” lives up to that. Get that free download, and enjoy! Must listen and must download!

Events | Size In The Park Expands to 2 Days, Tickets Now On Sale

Posted by on August 6, 2013

After a successful, but rainy and quiet debut to Size in the Park last year, Steve Angello’s Size Matters returns to Central Park in New York City for a second year. This time they have expanded from just one day, to almost a two day festival format. No word on the lineup yet, but I would be willing to bet that it would be some people from Size. Just a shot in the dark, not totally sure though.

Going for the outdoor gig in late September is a bold maneuver because it could get pretty cold at night, especially if it is rainy, but bold choices can pay off. More info at the Size In The Park website here. Tickets are on sale now a few days early, though pre-sale tickets sold out in the blink of an eye.


Dubstep, Review | Reso – Tangram Remixed (Ft. Koan Sound, Billain, Om Unit, & Doshy)

Posted by on March 12, 2013

Reso - Tangram Remixed (Ft. KOAN Sound, Billain, Om Unit, & Doshy)One of the best remix compilations these artists will ever be a part of. Reso really knew who he wanted to do remixes, and his choices are a great success. Each remix is great on their own. KOAN Sound came in a little differently than they have been, but provided enough glitchy bass to feed a starving country… if people were to be able to ingest bass. Billain dropped a filthy Neuro-hop remix followed by an incredible melodic remix from Om Unit. Though I had made my comments on my favorites previously, the full remix of Doshy’s turned out to be more interesting than imagined. 4 great remixes, it doesn’t get better than that.

Dubstep, Electro | Wideboys – Addicted to the Bass (Svyable & PRFFTT Remix)

Posted by on September 26, 2012

This remix is hot! Everyone seems to be blending Electro with Dubstep now, but in my honest opinion everyone is doing a terrible job at it. In addition, the Wideboys have some of the best tracks to remix, “Addicted to the Bass” being one of the best choices to test out this blend of genres. Svyable & PRFFTT shows us that there are still up and coming producers who know how to blend genres and come out with a quality track. This remix of theirs is full of energy, energy powered by bass in true style.

Dubstep | Marina & The Diamonds – Primadonna (RoughMath Remix)

Posted by on May 25, 2012

RoughMath who use to call himself Noir has never disappointed me. When he makes a track or remixes one, he knows exactly how to make it one of the best. The vocals on this track sounds cool and very different from a lot of other vocalists out there. RoughMath used the vocals in an A+ flawlessly beautiful fashion. His synth and bass choices are perfect for the feel, simply a sick remix.


Albums | Dshaq’s Top 10 of 2011

Posted by on January 11, 2012

2011 was a big year. I started blogging, I got accepted into college, all that good stuff. It was pretty tough going through the iTunes library and narrowing down the choices to just these 10 but I’m pretty happy with it and hopefully it’s a crowd pleaser. Without further ado here is my top 10 of 2011.

10. Lets just say had this song not come out I probably would not like Skizzy Mars as much as I do. This was the first song I heard by Skizzy and his wordplay and unique sound got me hooked.
Skizzy Mars – Douchebag

9.Out of Mac’s 2 mixtapes, album, and EP he released this year, I’m going away from those and with the under the radar track that he did with DJ Premier. This beat alone probably could’ve made the list but Mac spits some quality bars over it.
Mac Miller – Face The Facts

8. This song was literally on repeat all summer…and still is today.
Aer – Feel I Bring

7. I had no idea that my favorite character on Community was able to spit fire like this. I mean the beat is insane but his wordplay is even crazier. Excited to see more from Mr. Glover in 2012
Childish Gambino – Freaks and Geeks

6. This song is pure happiness. I don’t know how else to explain it except that this beat is mesmerizing.
Neon Indian – Polish Girl

5. I don’t know what I enjoy more in this song either the beat or his voice. It’s such a powerful and dark song.
The Weeknd – Wicked Games

4. Macklemore’s ability to tell a story through his lyrics is mind-boggling good. The emotion in this song pours out line by line.
Macklemore – Wings

3. This song alone made me really appreciate Frank Ocean as an artist and also dabble into his other music, which thank god i did.
Frank Ocean – Novacane

2. Ever since A$AP released that mixtape, I honestly can’t go a day without listening to it. This song in particularly, especially with his flow and lyrics in it.
A$AP Rocky – Peso (Prod. By ASAP Ty Beats)

1. Well where do I begin on this one. 2011 was a big year for Tyler and the GOLF WANG. He supplied us with hands down the best Nardwuar Interview, a phenomenal album and countless other funny outbursts that kept us entertained. Although I love this beat and Tyler’s lyrics, I think the video might be even better and it definitely helped create the buzz that really got them on the main stage. I’m really excited to see what’s in store from the Golf Wang hooligans in 2012, especially if Earl comes back.
Tyler, The Creator – Yonkers
