I think I’ve Lost my MIND

STS9 New Years Eve

STS9 New Years Eve

This is why I love soundtribe…..

“Music, US” just sounds pretty and sts9 builds it up so well live.  They played this the first night at the Tabernacle over their four night run in Atlanta and I can truly say I was in awe.  The samples of the girl singing just sound sooooo good.  About six minutes into the song you’re going to forget what song your  listening to!  The samples get just plain out-of-control.  The way it was described to me was that “the girl” is hiccuping.  Don’t believe me… listen. The madness begins at around 6:30 into the song.

And of course…Instantly

Here is the soundboard of Somesing from the second night in Atlanta.  This song is really bad ass because it is super bass heavy and I swear if you listen to it on a good sound system you feel like its a new-age electronic orchestra.  It’s soooo sick.  I don’t even know how to describe this song in words!!!

The best word I’ve heard used to describe the bands style is FRICTION and I think it sums them up really well and  I’m really stoked the shows in March.

Later,

Michael

o and don’t forget, pretty lights on friday night

Coachella & Bonnaroo…

Posted in Uncategorized on February 4, 2009 by lewisgbrown

I noticed this when I was reading Kanye’s blog the other day…the lineup for Coachella. Coachella is a super dank music festival in California, taking place in Indo (right outside Palm Springs). For everyone from the south east of the country…its like Bonnaroo in California, except it hasnt really been as badly commercialized and raped by MTV yet (in my opinion – although this year the Bonnaroo lineup is pretty dank, see it HERE – and um Al Green and Merle Haggard anyone…plus Santogold, which hopefully could mean Diplo). Check out the Coachella lineup though, its interesting:

Crookers

     I would donate my left nut to science to go to this festival, because SO many awesome people are playing. Drive-by and Franz Ferdinand, Lupe, the Black Keys, People Under the Stairs (crazy), and Thievery Corporation are all nuts. Keep reading the fine print and it gets better: Ghostland, Clipse, Girl Talk, & Rhazel (the nuts-ass beat box guy). However, I think the craziest shit at this festival is gonna be all the turn-tablists, electronic artists, remixers and DJ collaborations. mstrkrft-neon1Crookers is a crazy good duo as is Crystal Method, they will have shit hittin hard for sure. Also N.A.S.A. (who we did a post about earlier) and one of my personal favorites MSTRKRFT will definitely be bumping and have people raging super hard. The last thing I wanted to mention was TRAV$DJ-AM. Everyone knows Travis Barker of Blink-182 fame, and hopefully has heard of popular DJ-AM (if your not really into this type of music he’s the one in the silver lambo that steals Turtle’s shoes on that episode of Entourage). These two have been doing a drum and DJ collaboration in various clubs and selling out shows all over L.A. Also, they made a bad ass mixtape called Fix Your Face, which you can download from them HERE

P.S. here is a dank new jam from N.A.S.A.

N.A.S.A. – Samba Soul (feat. Del Tha Funkee Homosapien & DJ Qbert)
