Electronic | Disclosure – Latch (Lido Remix)

Posted by on April 16, 2014

Less than a week ago I posted a Disclosure remix by up and comer cln. and in doing so, highlighted the importance of originality in these ubiquitous Disclosure remixes in order for them to break the surface, hit the big time, soar to the top of the Hype Machine charts, whatever. After hearing just a mere preview of Lido’s remix, it all became clear to me why this was one of the most anticipated Disclosure remixes in a minute. The Norwegian producer (not pointing any fingers this time) has made a name for himself after planting a seed in the scene long ago with his Cashmere Cat, “Kiss Kiss” remix (for you OG fans out there) and most recently, his rework of Yung Lean’s “Gatorade.”  This “Latch” remix is one of the more light-hearted, warm and fuzzy ones out there, perfect for any setting or time of day. Because, you know, for a second there I almost thought I never wanted to hear “Latch” again for the rest of the forseeable future but Lido really brought back the magic from the first time I heard this track back to life. Keep your eyes peeled for Lido’s EP release via Pelican Fly and your fingers crossed for it to be sooner rather than later.


UPDATE: Apparently Soundcloud was just not having it with this remix, so instead you’ll have to listen to it hear via this slightly sketchy Rinse FM rip, but hey at least it’s something.


FYI | Justin Bieber Filmed By Brazilian Prostitute

Posted by on November 6, 2013

It just keeps getting weirder. Just hours ago, PerezHilton.com released exclusive video of Justin Bieber purportedly asleep after doing the no pants dance. I’d have a lot of respect for the biebs if he manned up and owned it. Instead, he denies he was even there when pictures tell another story. Isn’t all that surprising. Here’s the sordid plot twist though…

Apparently, the woman in the video is Tati Neves, one of Brazil’s most famous transexual? prostitutes that just so happens to work at the brothel in question. Bieber was said to have picked her because “she looked like she could suck a golf ball through a garden hose.” I’m usually of the opinion that the biebs is bullet-proof. I’m not sure how he’s going to get out of this pickle.

UPDATE: Another woman from Paraguay has tweeted a pile of money thanking Justin. The plot thickens!

We are teaming up with Stereoshock to give you his latest edit as part of the second installment of his EDM cares campaign to help raise awareness and funds for important causes. In tune with the holiday spirit, he has partnered with Toys for Tots to raise awareness and funds for this great endeavor. This edit flawlessly meshes Hardwell’s edit of Michael Brun’s “Dawn” and Mr Fluff’s “Fearless Hearts”, picking a piece of a bass line here, a melody here and composing what sounds like one whole song and done with such ease that you hardly notice and any transitions.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Riz – Waiting Up ft. Drake [Behind The Leaked Record]

Posted by on April 20, 2012


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

UPDATE:  Before I even had a chance to post the track, SoundCloud informed me the new record was copyrighted.  With some further investigation, I discovered the track leaked and there is some controversy behind how and why the track hit the blogs.  If you watch the video above, Riz explains how the record came about and how his relationship with Drizzy’s team has since gone sour.  If the claims in this video are truthful and the facts are how they appear, I have a new found respect for Riz as an artist.  Emerging into the game is not easy. Whether you’re digging through couches for nickels and dimes or have trust fund labels at your disposal, you still have to put in the work.  From what I have gathered, Drake’s label took advantage of a young artist and failed to hold up their end of the agreement.

Whether or not this track was purposely released (Riz say’s it wasn’t), and whether Drake’s manager is riding around hanging a $30,000 wrist gem out the window, people have now heard the track and know the name Riz.  Publicity stunt?  Some may see it that way.  It’s all gravy until we heard more from Riz and can evaluate him more as an artist.  Be on the lookout for new (legitimate) music coming soon!

**NY hip-hop artist, Riz, is breaking new grounds with his most recent single featuring Drake, which will be featured on his debut album, The Blindside.  Until now, I’ve never heard of this cat, but with nearly 60,000 Twitter followers , it’s evident he’s been doing several things right for a fair amount of time now.  Although some of that fan base could be due to the fact he’s worked with industry bosses such as Whoo Kid, Mr. Thanksgiving aka DJ Drama, Lloyd Banks, Yo Gotti, Trey Songz & more, he holds his own on this new track.  Produced by 40, Drake kicks off the song with some relationship rhymes and Riz follows with some emotional lyrics we can all relate to. **

Electro | DJs From Mars Ft. Fragma – Insane In Da Brain

Posted by on October 13, 2011

DJs From Mars have seriously stepped up their game over the past 6 months. This official video has a lot of production work in it, it is directed by Francesco Fracchioni, 2D character design by Andrea Boscolo, and the video edit was done by Alex Bufalo. The video itself is a little funny the way they knock off some of the more famous videos we know, but the track is something else. This is some sick dance music, Fragma has quite an incredible voice to add.

UPDATE: Last night DJs From Mars were kind enough to shoot over a collection of their favorite Insane In Da Brain Remixes along with a dope self-bootleg that they did. Check out the tracks below:
