Josh Cocktail – Fire *future pop sensation?

January 31st, 2011 by | Music Video, Pop |

A few of my favorite blogs already posted this song and I finally realized it was time to post Josh Cocktail. For some reason, it reminds me of Mike Posner in terms of instrumentals, but Josh Cocktail has much better vocals and is more pop. Posner isn’t the best comparison but if Josh Cocktail had Posner’s resources, I can definately see him reaching similar heights and more.

Download “Fire”

Anybody else think Josh Cocktail will be on the radio within a few years, I sure hope so. Follow him on facebook and twitter.

January 31st, 2011 by | Mashup, Mashup Monday |

A month late but worth your wait! A collective of mashup artists called the Global Mashup Crew dropped a 10-track mixtape near the end of 2010 called Global Mashup Crew Biggest Hits 2010 (Download).The mixtape is worth downloading; honestly I kept around 7 of the mashups. Below are a few of my favorites that should convince you on downloading it plus the tracklisting.
Ha! Yes – I Know (Two Door Cinema Club VS Drake)
Big Z Remixes – Animal (Drake VS Neon Trees VS T.I.)
Doubleyou – Luda’s Magnetic Mafia (Ludacris VS Magnetic Man VS Swedish House Mafia)

(video) ¡MAYDAY! ft. Cee Lo Green, Mack Maine & Ghostwridah – Groundhog Day (Remix)

January 31st, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video |

I love this song, from the beginning with the unique vocals and great chorus from Cee Lo Green, to the rapping from Mack Maine, Ghostwridah and the members of ¡MAYDAY!, this song is a MUST DOWNLOAD.

I put their last mixtape, Lords of the Fly (Download), in our top 10 mixtapes of 2010 list and I really believe the Florida-based alternative hip-hop band is a group to watch in 2011.

If there is an artist to get on board with that more people should know about, it’s Kokayi. Above is the music video for “Roxtar” which is one of my favorite songs from him and the dope single from his Robots & Dinosaurs album (Buy).

If you’re wondering who those animals in the background of the music video are, that’s The Rock-afire Explosion, an animatronic robot band that was widely popular in the 1980’s. You can find more about them here.

Don’t sleep on Kokayi, he’s got loads of potential. Currently he’s working with a jazz band and in plans on a national tour. Follow Kokayi on facebook and twitter.

The Five One – Closing Time (remix)

January 31st, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap, Rock |

“Closing Time” originally came out in March 1998 by a rock band called Semisonic. It was a Grammy Award nominee for Best Rock Song in 1999. This song is still popular to this day and up-and-coming alternative hip-hop group, The Five One just dropped a cool remix of it. They changed up the beat a little bit, adding in a couple rap verses while keeping the same feeling of the original track in it. This is definitely a track worth checking out. Enjoy!

January 30th, 2011 by | Dubstep, Electro, Hidden Gem, Remix |

Whole-Z hails from Burlington, Vermont and makes absolutely dope BANGER remixes. Spotted his “Phantom of the Opera” remix on TSIS a couple days ago and that became a MUST POST song and is a MUST DOWNLOAD.

Love that Whole-Z decided to sample a showtunes and a dark show-tune with Phantom of the Opera, throwing in dubstep as well. Plus Whole-Z put in Lil’ Jon saying what he’s famous for to make for a dope remix.

Hidden Gem: Graffiti6

January 30th, 2011 by | Hidden Gem, Music Video, Pop, Rock |

Graffiti6 hasn’t released anything in 2011 yet, but that doesn’t mean they are not going to break out and become huge stars in the US. The London-based rock/pop duo, Graffiti6, formed in 2008 and has garnered national attention lately with MTV listing the band on their artists to watch in 2011 list so credit them on finding this dope artist.

Above is the music video for “Stare Into The Sun” (Download), a catchy neo-soul jam filled with catchy pop instrumentals and lyricism. Below are a couple of my other favorites from Graffiti6.

Graffiti6 – Stone In My Heart

Graffiti6 – Annie You Save Me

In the fall 2010 Graffiti6 released their full-length debut album, Colors, which got great reviews and some of the songs were featured in American TV shows, Greys Anatomy and CSI: NY. Purchase Colors if you like the three songs I posted above and follow Graffiti6 on facebook and twitter.
