This should be one hell of a tour across North America and you would be a fool to miss it. Dates are listed after the jump and more to be announced. Tickets go on sale Friday. More info on their website.


Drum & Bass, Preview | Rusko – Lift Me Up (Preview)

Posted by on June 25, 2013

Rusko - Lift Me UpSince Rusko released “Thunder” I have been wondering what his next out of this world single would be. This track is going to be huge. OWSLA is pulling in the best of the best, and Rusko clearly had to get his hands on a few of Kill The Noise’s signature synths. Rusko was one of the first bass artist I got into, and he has done nothing but maintain his status as one of the best since I first heard him. “Lift Me Up” releases July 2nd. He will be doing an extensive US tour this fall with Roni Size and Dynamite MC from Florida to California. Dates after the jump.



Compilation | Goldroom – Solé Fixtape Vol. 7

Posted by on February 3, 2013


The boys over at Solé Bicycles are back at it again with another installment of their monthly Fixtape series. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Solé, they’re a visionary lifestyle brand based in Venice, CA that specializes in fixed gear bicycles. These bikes are definitely worth checking out so don’t sleep on them and keep your eyes peeled for a custom FNT Solé bike which will be released shortly (right Brian Ruben?) This month’s mixtape was crafted by LA’s own Goldroom who provides a sound like nothing we’ve posted before. It’s different, but it’s fantastic…do yourself a favor and just sit back and start a relationship with this sensual mix for the next hour (tracklist after the jump).



Hip-Hop, Review | Grubeats’ Top 12 of ’12

Posted by on January 14, 2013

Grubeats; fashionably tardy as always.  I can’t promise I’ve saved the best for last, but hopefully this eclectic mix of tracks tickle’s at least party of your fancy.  I’d enjoy hearing from you in the comments section if you have opinions on any of these songs!

12.) Skizzy Mars – Sirens

This young star didn’t sound my radar until late spring of ’12.  I had heard the name and few scattered verses, but overlooked the true talent Skizzy Mars was bringing to the table until I first heard “Sirens”.  With sounds similar to a young Cudi, Skizzy himself only recently graduated high school and has only begun to lie the brick and mortar for long, prosperous career.

11.) Skrillex & Damian Marley – Make It Bun Dem

As you probably know, I’m not a die heard EDM head like many writers and followers of this site.  No kandi for this kid.  I do however, enjoy just about anything Skrillex lays his hands on.  Couple the addictive production with Damian Marley’s rasta raps and you have pure gold.  If and when hip-hop and EDM cross paths, this is the type of execution I expect.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Videos | Flying Lotus – Until The Quiet Comes (Short Film)

Posted by on September 9, 2012

Flying Lotus, like MF Doom, is one the worlds top Abstract Hip-Hop artists. On October 1st Flying Lotus’ next album, “Until The Quiet Comes” is releasing. Being familiar with his entire discovery, Flying Lotus is undoubtedly going to blow our minds. The short film above is NSFW, but not because of nudity but the violence depicted within. Filmed at Nickerson Gardens in Los Angeles, CA, director Kahil Joseph does not hold back in showing the life of those who live there. I understand what Kahil did with this video, death represents the quiet, and Flying Lotus’ music revitalizes the spirit within the man who was killed.

Dubstep | R Rated #40

Posted by on August 1, 2012

I am completely speechless right now after hearing this remix. Vexare has outdone himself, this remix is amazing. The saddest thing about this track is there is no official date for its release. Vexare said that he would be playing the full track at Next Level 2012 in Los Angeles, CA on August 11th. I wish I could go just to hear this played.

The original of this next track was actually really good. Flinch has been doing a lot of good work lately, but so has SPL. This is the third bomb remix from SPL I have heard in the past couple months. I didn’t think he could do another filthy remix like this after his “Gansters” VIP.

Exilica has been releasing one track after another for weeks now. Each one being just as good as the last, these two track have been released in just the past day. The first one, “Into Darkness,” is heavy enough to make my ears hurt in delight. The vocals are smooth and sweet, but that drop will kill you in your sleep. The second track is another original of Exilica’s called “The War.” I can’t for the life of me put my finger on the name of the movie sampled in this track, but it is just as filthy as the first.



Events, Preview, Progressive House | Laidback Luke – Speak Up (Preview) + US Tour

Posted by on March 1, 2012

Laidback Luke is a man who never rests with his Mixmash forum where he responds to all music submissions and tirelessly responds to his fans tweets and Facebook messages like few other artists. All the while he is able to crank out bangers like this one, “Speak Up” with Wynter Gordon. He has been playing it out for the better part of a year now and has really left it a mystery of when he would release this monster until very recently when he released the preview and the release date on March 12th. He is coming over the US for a massive US tour with many more dates to be announced, so do not miss him when he hits your city / area because it will be a party you would be remiss to skip. For those of you heading down to WMC & Ultra check out his Mixmash Pool Party, among the many ridiculous shows that week, because the lineup is great and it is an all day/night pool party. Listen to the preview for “Speak Up” and mark your calender for March 12th as this is going to big. April will remixes of “Speak Up” from the likes of Chris Lake and Mark Knight among others.
