Albums, Videos | The Making Of Pretty Lights Color Map Of The Sun

Posted by on June 19, 2013

pretty-lights-a-color-map-of-the-sunThump followed around Pretty Lights over the past 2 years during the process in which he has been crafted and developed his upcoming artist album “Color Map Of The Sun”. It goes through his progression of working in two studios in Brooklyn and New Orleans, working with countless musicians and singers trying to capture the most organic, raw, soulful sound he could for his album. This time he did not want to go out and sample records, but rather he wanted to create the samples himself and it took over a year to do so, working with all analog machinery to distort and cut, giving it that sound of a past generation. As I finish this video, I have not been this excited for an album since RAM, and though that was only a month ago, this has the possibility to to inspire dance music in a similar way, going back to the roots of blues, hip hop, folk and rock, imbuing them with an electronic sound. Just take it from the man himself as he talked about his own album,

“I think something beautiful and timeless was created”

Does it seem like he is either always high, or just goofy like that? Those dance moves are a bit much at times, but you can see his passion. Also that kitty may just be cutest DJ cat around, sorry Mr Meowingtons and Mittens Francis.

Hip-Hop | Featured Artist: None Like Joshua

Posted by on October 20, 2011

21 years old from Atlanta Georgia and currently resides in New Orleans, Joshua isn’t your average rapper. None Like Joshua comes in with a style like MIke Shinoda’s, but dreams further than the stars rapping over some of the hottest dubstep beats. After asking him to tell me a little about himself, I came to the conclusion his story is better told by his own words.

“I had been drumming since I was 9, got into songwriting when I was 17. Made horrible beats in Garageband and horrible raps since I wanted to be like Buck 65. Copped Logic Pro 8, started making much better beats and raps once I heard the Bike for Three album, and then started remixing trip-hop and putting it out on YouTube by 2009. Then I was getting more and more requests and eventually someone requested dubstep. Everything took off from there. There are big plans underway that I can’t say, but it will all occur in time.”

Above is one of his newest tracks builing up to his upcoming album with PITCHEDsenses. Below are a few of his great works, Graduation being one of my favorites of his. Check Out None Like Joshua on his WEBSITEFACEBOOKYOUTUBE, and SOUNDCLOUD.

Hip-Hop | Jay Electronica – Call of Duty (Modern Warfare 3)

Posted by on October 13, 2011

Jay Electronica took the hip-hop world by storm a couple years ago when he dropped “Exhibit C”.  You would have thought Biggie resurrected from his grave (which in a way he later did when Jay dropped “The Ghost Of Christopher Wallace”).  Since then, Jay has hit us with a couple more powerful tracks, “Shiny Suit Theory ft. Jay Z & The-Dream” & “The Announcement”, along with some nice features.  Other than those, Elec has been rather quiet which has had fans wondering what the New Orleans native has been up to.

After speculations were flying that Jay would sign to Diddy’s label, Bad Boy Records, after they released “The Ghost Of Christopher Wallace”, Elec turned and signed with the competition, Jay-Z, at Roc Nation.  As Jay-Z said about J. Cole, he is in no position to rush artists, but rather give them time to build.  Apparently he has the same game plan for Jay Elec as this single, “Call of Duty (Modern Warfare 3)” will be the first off his debut LP album,  Act II: Patents of Nobility, which may or may not drop this year.  The song features production from Young Guru and a spot from Havoc & Prodigy aka Mobb Deep.

As you can see above, there apparently is some unsettled beef between Jay and Diddy, as he took to his Twitter to send warning shots to the Bad Boy squad.  I’d presume this is the first major threat MGK has received since signing to Bad Boy earlier this year.  Personally, I don’t think MGK will do anything and Diddy isn’t the “bad boy” he once was, so I don’t really see this going anywhere.

Diplo is a bit late with his remix of Sleigh Bells’, “Tell Em.” He seems passionate about the duo, though. In a statement made to fans, Diplo said, “…Their [Sleigh Bells] last album was one of the sickest of ’10…It’s soo sick, it gave me a stomach ache.” He then explained why the remix was delayed: “I started this mix for them like a year ago but it took Derek about 6 months to send stems so it was kinda in remix limbo but I really wanted to get it out to u guys cause I think the bass and the drums sounds nice and you can play it at your next party.”
