There’s something to be said about growing up the ‘90s, an era where punk and pop reigned supreme, while bands like Nirvana, Blink 182, and Sum 41 providing the soundtracks to our childhoods. Fast forward over twenty years, and punk-pop has been pushed from the spotlight by electronic dance music, but Kasum is managing to blend the two to great success. He’s already taken on nearly every punk classic from the 90s, including Third Eye Blind’s “Semi-Charmed Life” and Green Day’s “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” and today, we’ve got a re-imagination of Avril Lavigine’s “Complicated” featuring vocals from Megan Hamilton and Kasum himself. Kasum infuses “Complicated” with a melodic dubstep makeover, as he combines thrilling guitar riffs with Hamilton’s vocals to send waves of nostalgia coursing through your body.

Dave Edwards drops his electro-pop touch on Kentö’s “Complicated” and packaged it all up in the form of a video for your listening and viewing pleasure. The more I listen to this remix I can only imagine the fun Dave must’ve had making this track in the studio, it’s so funky, and glitchy, it’s impossible not to feel! Mr. Edwards doesn’t release many remixes but when he does, you know you’re in for treat. I’ll let you tell it. This is a must listen!

Hip-Hop | Chris Brown ft. Asher Roth + T-Pain ft. Chris Brown

 Chris Brown and Asher Roth…wait, what?  As unexpected as this track may appear to be, we’ve learned that cross genre collaborations are nothing new in the music industry.  We’ve seen Asher team up with Akon and several other high profile artists, so the fact that Breezy reached out to Ash doesn’t surprise me the least bit.  As far as the result of the collaboration, ehhhh.  Weezy’s “rockstar mentality” may have rubbed off a bit on Breezy on this track.  Is it just me or does it sound like he’s trying to sound a bit punk in some parts, like Blink 182 style?  I’d give it a 6 out of 10, but I don’t doubt its capability to catch on somewhere.
