Alternative, Hip-Hop, Videos | Aer – Won’t Laugh

It’s been a few since Northeast duo, Aer, hit us with a new track.  While their good vibes, string riffs, & carpe diem lyrics are often associated with “summer music”, “Won’t Laugh” carries their sound through all four seasons.  The almost tribal toned intro rings us in, as David picks up the guitar and carries the hook while Carter lays down a few noteworthy verses; “Now you wonder why I wouldn’t trade my life with you, Why?! Cuz you hang the same keys from the same hook every afternoon, My angels lookin down upon me from a great view, they got my back but they hate you”.  ‘Do what you love, love what you do’ mentality.

Soaring high, it’s safe to say these guys will be raising the bar on their self entitled album due out January 21st!

Bass | Chase & Status – International (Skrillex Remix)

Posted by on October 17, 2013

This is why we wait patiently when artists don’t release songs as often as we would like, or as often as they used to. Everyone wants a piece of the Skrillmeister (be it for positive or negative reasons) and he has his hands on a million different projects at once. In interviews, Moore has stated that he does not release material unless he is completely satisfied with the result, often citing difficulties deciding how to put together albums or EPs. I respect that mentality. Obviously he decided that this remix was ready to rock, and I would have to fully agree. I like a lot of the projects that Skrillex has contributed toward, and this remix is no exception. It is included on the new Chase & Status album, and feels right at home in that collection.This tune is well-crafted and really is an excellent remix of the original.  It shakes the walls, and I love it.

Electro-House | Mord Fustang – Something Right Meow

I’ve been needing some new Mord Fustang in my life for a while now, and happily enough the music gods decided to deliver today. “Something Right Meow” is textbook Mord — I think we can all agree that no one does kaleidoscopic soundscapes and driving basslines quite like the young Estonian producer. For your own sake, download this one right meow.

Drum & Bass | KillSonik – Leviathan

Posted by on June 8, 2013

KillSonik - LeviathanKillSonik killing it again. This epic Drum & Bass “Leviathan” is one of the best tunes I have heard from the duo, even during their days as Chasing Shadows. The electric guitar on this track has the rocker in me air strumming like my life depends on it. It is one of the coolest instruments, in my opinion, that anyone could include in a song. Classic Drum & Bass lovers may not be as into this, but if you love terrifying bass, this original is for you.

Hip-Hop, Rap, Videos | Raz Simone – These Kids Throw Rocks

Posted by on June 3, 2013

“She got a big booty, so I call her big booty.”
“Popped a molly, I’m sweatin’, woo!”
“You say no to rachet pussy, Juicy J can’t.”

What do these three lines have in common? They are all some of the most widely recited and remembered lines in hip-hop these past few months. What else do they have in common? They have absolutely zero substance, thought, or profundity to them.

Raz Simone on the other hand takes a different approach to his music. With careful thought and emotion poured in to each line, listeners are drawn in and kept hooked throughout every song, mixtape and album. After the success of his most recent EP, Solomon Samuel Simone, Raz decided to take to the camera and capture more in depth one of the offerings from the tape.

The video for “These Kids Throw Rocks” has hit the internet and is quite impressive.

Here’s what Raz had to say: “This video is self directed and edited for a more personal approach to visualize the song. After recent events in my life the lyrics hit even harder than when I initially wrote them.”

I hope you enjoy and be sure to grab the full Solomon Samuel Simone EP here, if you haven’t already!

Indie, Progressive House | Phoenix – Trying To Be Cool (The Chainsmokers Remix)

Much like the overweight girl with a great personality, The Chainsmokers have, for the most part, been ignored. Ignored by unattractive girls and the aforementioned overweight girl that is, because they know they have no chance with these guys. Damn they’re attractive. I haven’t actually seen them, except in my dreams, but I imagine with their multiple 100k plus played tracks on Soundcloud that it would be so. Continuing their trend of remixing indie bands, the duo have decided to take a spin at remixing Phoenix’s “Trying To Be Cool”. If you know of The Chainsmokers then you know what to expect from this. A fun, upbeat song with a hint of both house and indie. They have definitely done this track justice, with this possibly being better than the original.
