Electronic | NYC-Based Gromo Combines Hip-Hop And Dance With “Reaction”

Posted by on July 26, 2017

New York City-based high school student Gromo starts every day with a single goal: make music. His consistent effort and drive are already paying dividends. After earning a coveted spot as one of the youngest DJ/producers to play the Ultra Music Festival, the emerging DJ, guitarist, producer, and songwriter is back with his latest single “Reaction”, the follow-up to “Selfish”. Featuring a strong urban electronic vibe, “Reaction” combines hip-hop infused production with soulful r&b vocals. Showcasing a musical savvy beyond his years, Gromo seamlessly blends hard-hitting percussion with dynamic synths, creating a seductive, head-nodding listening experience.

Chill, Hip-Hop, Rap, RnB | Scolla – Peace

scolla - peace

Clocking in at two minutes, thirty-two seconds, my initial reaction to Scolla’s “Peace” was: “I want more!” The soulful hip-hop track pulls you in with soothing vocals that you hope never leave your ears, and keeps you interested when Scolla’s deep and choppy verse appears.

Like many of us, Scolla asks for peace and love. A message clearly reflected in his music within the subtle tones and gentle lyrics. I highly recommend giving “Peace” a listen, as well as perusing the rest of Scolla’s RLES crew. The album OG Cool is on the way, so be sure to check back in for that.


Hip-Hop | Jay-Z – Dead Presidents 3

Posted by on July 8, 2013


Jay-Z’s twitter spree came bearing fruit today courtesy of a one @JordanJClemons. The tweet read ”is there a finished version of Dead Presidents 3?”, and among the plethora of gifted replies, Hov said to this one: ”Just or Guru has it I give them Twitter permission to GO”. Hours later Guru resurrects the nearly 5 year old DP3 in full. A gorgeous chain reaction that seeded from the mind of @JordanJClemons. Cool things.


House | Kaskade – Raining (Late Alumni Redux Mix)

Kaskade at U Street Music Hall

Did you catch Kaskade’s Redux tour? I did (the above pic is actually from the stop I hit, so I’m somewhere in that rowdy, sweaty crew) and it was an absolutely amazing night. This remix of his beloved classic “Raining” was one of the mainstays on Redux and unsurprisingly drew quite the reaction when it dropped here in DC. Of course, deep house isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but Sunsun’s vocals work perfectly with the track’s chilled out vibes.

Electro-House | Laidback Luke – 1234 feat. Chuckie and Martin Solveig

Posted by on May 7, 2012

This track from quite the power trio in Chuckie, Laidback Luke & Martin Solveig is pure dance floor madness. The grinding synths, progressive chord progression, pounding bass line, air horns and vocal bit done by the three Djs create the madness contained in this track. This song has been a necessity for a large number of big name Djs like Tiesto, David Guetta, Dada Life etc and with the crowd reaction it is easy to see why this should be a go to energy track this summer. After the jump check out an interview with Laidback Luke about how he made the track and the response to it.
