Exclusive, Featured, Interviews | Stereoshock Helps Me Get A Date, Explains The Tissues On His Desk & More

Posted by on September 29, 2013


April 19th, 2012, the day started just like any other. I had woken up a few minutes later than usual and after doing the math, figured that I would miss about five minutes of my first class. I then decided to skip the whole day and stay home. As per usual when I don’t go to class, I bump it up to twice a day. Two girls were texting me at the time so I was just super busy, the time that had been allocated for me to study and do the work that I was missing was pushed aside in order to make room to mow the lawn, like my dad had asked me to days prior. I didn’t mow the lawn and instead went to Best Buy to get some Beats by Dre Studio’s. I got them, in black for some reason, came home and bumped it up once again to three times a day. After my third Klondike bar of the day, making my bi-hourly visit to Soundcloud seemed like the next obvious choice.

It was then that I became acquainted with 20 year old, New York based producer Stereoshock, or as his mother calls him Josh Cohen. I was eating some leftover chilli at the time and accidentally spilled some on my shirt but it didn’t matter, because the song I was listening to was just so good. It wasn’t an original, but it sure sounded like it. At that point forward I was aware that an edit or mashup could be more than vocals thrown over an instrumental or simply interchanging two songs drops. Stereoshock has a level of sophistication in both his edits and originals that is not seen very often. Over time we’ve become friends, and he expressed interest in an interview, so I obliged. Be warned that this interview is extremely serious. We talk about only the most important topics that other artists refuse to.


Electronic | Banks – Warm Water (Snakehips Remix)

Posted by on July 10, 2013


It’s safe to say enough time has passed since the last remix of a Banks song occurred that we can pass on the torch to another. Honestly, Djemba Djemba made it virtually impossible for anyone to even try and level up in the wake of his “Fall Over” remix. But there seems the musical gods has chosen Snakehips as the fateful predecessor.

Snakehips did what needed to be done and took this remix in a completely different direction than the above. It’s also more turned down than their latest release, “Make It.” But this remix stays true to the beauty and intimacy of the original, yet sprinkles some of that vinyl scratch and groovy beats that are so quintessentially Snakehips right on top. Have I tempted you enough yet to give it a try? Don’t be shy, the water’s warm.




Mashups, Progressive House | DOSVEC – Bad Things

Posted by on June 25, 2013


So the story goes that DOSVEC heard the original song “Bad Things” by Meiko on a Real House Wives of New Jersey commercial and had his people call her people. Her people sent over the A Capella, he mashed it up with Deadmau5 and Meiko personally enjoyed it. Now it is time for all of us to enjoy it.

This track sounds like Deadmau5 sat in the studio with Meiko and created progressive house. The A Capella and Beats intertwine seamlessly and compliment each other very well. Press play and check it yourself, warning very addictive.
