Alternative | Burial & Four Tet – Nova

Posted by on March 6, 2012

I’m all ears when it comes to music. Sonically, there is nothing I wouldn’t consider worth my ears. I developed a passion for experimental music long ago, and watched it grow into the sensation it is today. When I caught the amount of attention this track was getting I had to take the opportunity to prove just that. Soundcloud wise, this record in one days time has more plays than Avicii’s hit Levels had managed to get in 4 months. If that doesn’t prove the rocketing of experimental music, what could.

Alternative, post-dubstep, experimental, however many labels you wish to name. There will always be artists that act as stubborn children in that their driven to produce what not only blurs the lines of genre but makes it absurd for you to even try and categorize in one. From the likes of Mount Kimbie, Jamie XX, Lapalux, Arthur Russell, Shlohmo and of course Burial and Four Tet, these are just a few of the many talents still left waiting for the masses to catch up with their past.

My public service announcement is as follows: Thanks goes out to the late great Steve Jobs for the creation of the iPod, making music no longer sonically racist in a time when you felt you had to fit into a particular genre like a pair of clothes and not dare dabble in any others. And thanks to the makers of Soundcloud for broadening our view of music into the sonic playground it is today. Records like Nova say more than words ever will, take a listen.

Videos | Timeflies Tuesday: iTribute

Posted by on October 11, 2011

I think its safe to say that Timeflies are officially on one. This weeks Timeflies Tuesday is an ode to the late great Steve Jobs and its beyond epic. Here is what they had to say about it:

This week, rather than our usual freestyle, we wanted to take the time to put something together that was more serious to show respect for an innovator who has been such a big part of our lives.

All of this was shot on an iPad 2 and edited using iMovie, recorded, mixed, and mastered on an iMac. The beat was made using samples from OSX and iOS – everything on a Tuesday.

Hip-Hop | Lil Wayne – Public Service Announcement (30 min. Documentary?)

Posted by on October 8, 2011


Weezy just put out this documentary, if you will, of him venting out about a variety of things. Wanye discusses the recent passing of Steve Jobs and from that goes on to wonder if people will remember him for his greatness when he dies. He than goes on to say how syrup is part of southern culture and goes on to explain his point of view on the drink in a very creative way to say the least. Regardless of your thoughts on Lil Wayne the video above is a good watch if you’re trying to kill some time on this Saturday afternoon.
