Sam Smith cleaned up this year at the Grammys…and it was well deserved. We were expecting at least a small shoutout to Disclosure after Sam Smith won his FOURTH Grammy of the night, but Sam Smith unfortunately didn’t show the electronic world any love. Regardless, LA producer Justin Caruso just delivered a tropical house remix that is so good, you would have thought it was Kygo. Let Justin Caruso take you back to summer with Sam Smith’s beautiful vocals and tropical infused beat.

FYI | Al Walser: The Definitive Guide

Posted by on December 6, 2012

If you’re among the dwindling percentage of the population that considers the Grammys to be a relevant barometer of today’s music scene, this was probably an exciting morning for you. Nominations for the 2013 awards (where we honor songs from 2012; yes, it’s all terribly confusing) have arrived — and in true Grammys fashion, there are some absolute curveballs thrown into an otherwise dull and predictable mix. Chief among them:

1. No nominations for Bieber. Cue mass Belieber outrage. God willing, however, the Biebs will still get tapped to perform, and in doing so will treat us to yet another glorious display of those drop crotch Hammer-pant legging things he so favors.

2. “Levels” was apparently released after October 2, 2011 and thus qualifies for a nomination.

3. Al Walser.

Since we’re assuming that this is the first you’re hearing of Al, we’ve prepared this handy guide to get you up to speed with the man of the hour. Check out the high budget marvel that is the above video, and then join us after the jump.


Pop, Videos | Chris Brown x Rihanna, Eric Turner

If you’ve been reading the tabloids the past few days you may have seen the rumors floating around that Chris Brown and Rihanna have/will reunite.  RiRi celebrated her 24th birthday with a celeb packed private party at her Hollywood mansion over the weekend and after some complications getting legal permission to enter, Breezy made his way in to share a slice of Rihanna’s cake.  In addition, Missing Info has confirmed Chris Brown has recorded both a rap verse and a singing verse for the official remix to Rihanna’s single “Birthday Cake” off Talk That Talk.  The song is only 1:18 minutes long right now and almost seems like Rihanna has had this planned for longer than we think.  Monday, Rihanna’s birthday, has potential to ignite a storm of criticism towards Rihanna from the same people who despise CB after he beat Rihanna back in ’09.  At the end of the day, all personal BS aside, if this remix really does happen, it’s going to be a crazy song.

Had to share that, now for the video.  I knew this track was going to be a major hit right when it dropped.  I can’t say Breezy’s Grammy performance gave this track justice (vocally), but his acrobatic footwork was in full effect.  This video has a similar plot to “Yeah x3” where CB blocked off the street and ensued an electric dance festival.

Below is another track I’ve had in my library for several weeks now.  I overlooked it because I only had a radio rip, but I grabbed the CDQ yesterday, found the video, and had to share it.  Eric Turner, a pop singer/songwriter native to Boston linked up with Lupe and UK spitter Tinie Tempah for a catchy new radio jam.
