Dubstep | Chime Releases Bass-Filled Remix Of IMLAY’s Hazy Original “Empress”

Posted by on November 5, 2016

Chime does some serious impressing with this one. With his three-stripes-and-a-circle symbol flying high, Chime add’s something to IMLAY’s “Empress” release that his fans love and know all too well. Vivid, melodic bass that’s a blast to rock out to “Empress (Chime Remix) give plenty of opportunity to do just that with this one.

Chime’s resume of sounds speaks for itself at this point. NCS, Firepower, MA Music, and Daily Earfood are just a handful of the labels Chime has been above to win over. All of his releases has a common core that runs through it, video game music seeming to be where he evolved from to get to this point. Word on the street is Chime will be dropping a full EP on Firepower Records as well. The man keeps pumping out tracks, interested to see how Chime will evolve in 2017.

If you enjoy melodic bass, Chime is your man.

One of my homies put me on to the band MisterWives, and I can’t deny their track “Reflections” is super catchy! Late to the party as for a change, as word on the street they’re already selling out shows cross country, but it’s never too late to discover a band that will for sure have their radio hit in no time, if it’s not this one! This is a must listen and check out their EP Reflections on iTunes. The band will be performing at Webster Hall September 4th, so make sure you get your tickets and go check them out if you’re in the area! This is a must listen!

Two Fridays ago in New York it monsooned. Not your average everyday, downpour with the occasional flash of lightning, but a serious cloth soaking, 100% humidity state of affairs that created deceptive “puddles” that would envelop your entire lower leg up to your knee. Despite this and a 4 hour flight delay because of it, The Bixel Boys got to Webster Hall to play alongside the big man himself (he is actually a rather tall and imposing figure), Tchami.

So me hoarse from yelling over the music and a busted voice from a week of tough allergies and a cold, managed to get out some ridiculous questions to the guys and they gave me some great answers with Tchami “Untrue” blaring in the background.

DO SOMETHING

Hip-Hop, Rap | Saba – 401k

Posted by on April 29, 2014

Perhaps not known by name to many, Saba has surely made a statement for himself amongst the Chicago rap scene. In “401k” he tells a sad story shared by many kids coming up in Chi-town. Despite good grades, his environment held him back from excelling in a job setting, and led right back to the street life.

Traded a 401k for an AK

Saba spits with conviction, and although there is some fine-tuning that needs to be done, it’s clear that this young man will be riding the Chicago rap wave for the foreseeable future.

The DMV has made quite a statement recently with new talent springing up right and left. The influx of new musicians to watch certainly doesn’t stop with Young Money Yawn. The 20 year old emcee takes on a more “street” side of Virginia, and speaks about his come up over a variety of different production styles.

Those who follow the DMV hip-hop scene closely might recognize the Board of Administration’s, Black Cobaine feature, amongst others. The tape is packed with eighteen original songs as well as a few bonus tracks, and aside from the speaking interludes getting a bit repetitive, the project is a very strong body of work. Stream and download in its entirety below!

Hip-Hop, Rap | GoldLink – The Heart

Goldlink-TheHeart

GoldLink is really pressing his luck with his most recent release entitled, “The Heart”. Anyone with a halfway decent taste in music knows that Kendrick Lamar absolutely annihilated this beat on his mixtape Overly Dedicated a few years back. That being said, GoldLink absolutely held his own, and spit some introspective bars that give us a much better idea of the street life and family struggles that he was going through.

Although “The Heart” will not be featured on GoldLink’s upcoming project The God Complex it will surely keep us on our knees begging for more. Enjoy.

Chill, Dubstep | James Egbert – Exit Wounds (Murtagh Remix)

First off, I would just like to apologize for the scarcity of my posts. A few weeks ago I gained access to a Brazzers account and my life has been in shambles ever since. Not only that, but a few days ago I accidentally checked out the new guy at my work. He had long hair and was wearing a lululemon sweater so there was really nothing I could do there. It was crazy. Also, as if that wasn’t enough, my mom bought me candy cane scented hand soap but it doesn’t really smell like candy canes. It smells like how I imagine a candy cane would smell like after it had been sitting on the street for a few weeks and then thrown at my face by a smelly person.

 

In addition to wondering why Taylor Swift is always kissing a different guy in her music videos and how I wish I was one of them, there has been one other thing on my mind for the past few days and that has been this song. It is not often a song opens with 2 minutes of atmospheric piano and slowly building strings before switching gears entirely and becoming a chillstep track but that is what Murtagh did with his remix of James Egbert’s “Exit Wounds”. While I do think the intro could have used maybe an extra synth or two to liven it up a bit, it is still incredibly cinematic and well done. The uniqueness of it and the fact that it’s free makes this a track worth checking out.
