Post Cherry Popped

Posted in Uncategorized on October 30, 2008 by lhoughton

So here is my first post! Ghostland Observatory has been a favorite band for a while, saw them at Langerado this past March and the show was absolutely incredible.  Ghostland is a funky duo from Austin, TX, decked in straight up disco gear and backed by a ridiculous light show…

They´re touring now, and will be in Atlanta and Nashville the 20th and 21st of November

Good Ol’ Hip Hop, From A Young Fresh Dude

Posted in Uncategorized on October 30, 2008 by dgaines42

Charles Hamilton is a breath of fresh air to all those who love good hip hop. This dude reminds me of Lupe Fiasco, Q-Tip, Kanye, and Lil Wayne all mixed in one. His sampling and musical background reminds me of Kanye and Lupe. His flow and his voice remind me of Q-Tip and Weezy. This dude was born in my hometown of Cleveland, OH so of course I am going to rep him. He is constantly in the studio at Frederick Douglas Academy (FDA as he refers to it) where he has produced some of his hot tracks that are on the mixtape scene right now.

I first heard this dude from his exposure on Entourage. His song Brooklyn Girls was on like the 3rd episdoe of the new season. He was signed by Dr. Dre and Interscope records so I’m sure his first studio album will be a classic. Check out these songs and try to catch his mixtapes because he is releasing like 5 or so in the past couple of months.

Oh yeah, and this kid is obsessed with Sonic the Hedgehog. I grew up playing that game on Sega Genesis. Real chill rapper, plus his favor color is pink. He associates pink with the inside of a woman, that is the most sacred and beautiful creation of God. Ha this dude is sick.

so, here is something that i actually made. i mashed up parts from “Im Illi” (Lil Wayne), “Let ‘Em Have It Remix” (2Pac & 50 Cent), and “Juicy” (B.I.G.) with pieces of a song called “Straight Heat” from a really tight DJ/electronic/rap artist, edIT – and this is what i got

first thing ive ever made. not straight professional or anything, not perfect but hopefully decent; let me know what yall think, here it is:

All I Do Is Party

Bounce High

Alain Macklovitch(A-Trak) is one of the best young DJ’s out right now. This dude won the 1997 DMC World Championship at age 15. He is the youngest to ever win this award and he was also the first Canadian to win the award. Last year I was able to see this dude live as he toured with Kanye West as his DJ. A-Trak’s smooth blend of funk, hip-hop, rock, and electronic is keeping kids dancing and wanting more. If you have heard any of Kanye’s new shit, you can tell A-Trak has had an influence on Yeezy’s musical direction. Here are a few of his hottest tracks. He does a remix of MSTRKRFT’s – Bounce, a mash up with Kanye’s old joint Get Em High, and a phat beat with Lupe’s sick lyrical flow. Enjoy

Digital Pussy…

super raw rap remix of Daft Punk’s “Digital Love” by this guy (above) Kyle “Kid Color” Woods from L.A., now lives in Chicago. he says he calls himself Color because “the kind of parties I wanted to DJ – colorful lights, good energy, definitely disco influenced”….

Daft Punk vs. Bangers & Cash – Digital Pussy (Kid Color remix)

hopefully more to come from this guy, im lookin for more awesome shit of his to post.

also hopefully something to come from me. yes, something original (and hopefully awesome) that i am contributing to the music world…so look out, due to my ability to put off everything that i really should be doing, it is likely coming very soon

Athens DJ Immuzikation

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on October 20, 2008 by lewisgbrown

mashup sensation DJ Alfred Lapuz (calls himself Immuzikation) lives and operates in Athens, GA.

 

i dont know many DJs claiming to be from athens (yet); it is my guess that he is one of the few, and probably the best. he has been getting really big, primarily in the blog world, but is now growing bigger than that. hes putting out some pretty tight mashups…kinda like girl talk style and he samples a lot of cool shit. he has several live performances coming up in the fall/winter in Athens (283 Bar, 40 Watt, Mercury Lounge, GA Theater, etc.) as well as a spot in Athfest this summer

heres a couple of awesome mashups/remixes to intro this guy, i will be posting more of him for sure. by the way, the first is one of SPIN magazines top 25 MGMT remixes (there are literally thousands…im thinking about doing a post dedicated to MGMT remixes/mashups)

MGMT vs. Daft Punk – One More Time to Pretend (Immuzikation blend)

Justice vs. Kanye, Daft Punk, Diplo – Fortisphere (Immuzikation blend)

 

Its the Boss

if you like T.I.’s “Live Your Life” (you do) and you like Rick Ross (you probably do) then you will like this tight remix, plus Rhianna has a longer verse…and, even though girl pop/rap artists are gay and usually make shit music everyone knows they secretly (or openly) cant get enough of Rhianna
