Chill, Electronic | Schoolboy Q – Studio (PromNite Edition)

Posted by on May 14, 2014

“Studio” was hands down my favorite track off Oxymoron, but then again I’m a real sucker for those R&B//rap ballads. I’m also a sucker for just about anything mystery producer PromNite puts out. But hear me out on this remix here – PromNite keeps the deep, smokey vibes first brought to us by Schoolboy and BJ The Chicago Kid and mixes it up with some electronic beats, drums, and a touch of piano to make an even more sultry track that you won’t be able to wait to get down to. Dope.

Electro-House | Maddix – Send Us Some Bottles

Posted by on February 17, 2014

Maddix - Send Us Some BottlesOne of the byproducts of his studio sessions during the past few months in South Africa, Pablo Rindt, or Maddix, has released another barnstormer of a tune, “Send Us Some Bottles”. He hits us again with riveting builds and powerful, grinding saws grounded by a thumping bass line. Another freebee from the young Dutchman, he continues to impress with his high-octane electro house tunes.

NYC via FLA emcee Vulkan The Krusader has been locked away in his studio hard at work for the past year. The spoils are set to drop on Feb 14th, Valentines day in the form of VX13, featuring a 13 original joints that range from future boom bap to dream-wave chill, with collabs from Sean Price, Kyle Rapps and Spaceman and more.

Vulkan tells me that “Echo Chamber” was written from the perspective of a love struck homicidal maniac whom he read about in a newspaper article. Ranging from purposefully slightly off key vocals to his on-point, punchy delivery, this track serves as nice cross-section of his talents, but there is so much more, stay tuned.

Pop, Videos | Jon Bellion – The Making Of ‘One More Time’

Posted by on November 5, 2013

[do action=”youtube” videoid=”eQvz4Sjm9xs”/]

Jon Bellion’s creative process begins hours, day, weeks, maybe even months before he opens the doors and enters the studio.  It begins as a concept and once Jon enters his element, the creative thoughts and sounds stack like Lego’s.  Drums, one of a kind sounds Jon lets loose on the spot, & whatever other tricks he has up his sleeve on that given day – they all fill into each record.  For those of you that saw & heard “One More Time” when Jon released it a few weeks back know the seductive story that inspired it all.  What daddy don’t know, doesn’t hurt daddy, right?  If you missed it or you want to watch it one more time, you can do so here.

Album due out before we hit 2014! Hit the break and see if you can find Bellion’s name in the MMLP2 album insert!

ColePlante

I had the pleasure of being introduced these past 2 days to 16 year old DJ/Producer Cole Plant. Just looked up his music, and I had to share. I give this kid a lot of props and I have tremendous respect for him. He was shown the ropes by his father, working on records at his home studio, and has now finished up a tour opening for legend Paul Oakenfold, and headlined Lollapalooza in Chicago. Here’s a dope progressive house record called “Lie To Me” which was co-produced with Myon and Shane 54 and features the vocalist Koko LaRoo. Cole says that one of his favorite records is Motorcycle’s “As The Rush Comes,” and you hear these influences in this record. You can also anticipate a remix by R3HAB soon! Must listen, and support!
