Soundcloud’s Best: January 2012 *Damien J. Carter, Gabe and Benny, Matt Balfe, Cypher Clique

January 31st, 2012 by | Soundcloud's Best |

Here’s our best soundcloud submissions from January. Make sure to share tracks with us to our soundcloud!

The first track is from Damien J. Carter and Claudio Lari, two up-and-coming DJs from Europe. They just released a free banging track called “Pyro” that is a must-listen if you like electro-house music.

If Rebecca Black was couple of males instead of a young girl and liked to do some rapping with her subpar vocals, this is what she would sound like. Check out Gabe and Benny‘s “Party”, it’s got a fun pop vibe with brief moments of rap and dubstep and the singers saying the word “Party” a lot. Download the song on their website.

Next is Matt Balfe with “Give Myself to You”. I think the track needs some vocals and maybe a remix/refix from Balfe or some other DJ. The Australian DJ who does mostly house, electro and dance club type music is an up-and-comer to be on the lookout for!

Lastly we end with some chill sampled hip-hop from Cypher Clique. They sample Pete Rock, and have some dope rhymes over the old school hip-hop jam. I look forward to more original material from Cypher Clique but for now I can dig this old school vibe.

Vote on your favorite track below!

Video: Brian Lopez covers “The Killing Moon”

January 31st, 2012 by | Music Video, Rock |

Brian Lopez may be an unfamiliar name but he hits familiar points that will draw you close – looks like Albert Hammond Jr. (The Strokes), has the same delicate voice as Damien Rice and strums like the great Jeff Buckley. Based in Tuscon, Arizona, Brian presents a desert-noir, psych rock vibe and shakes things up with a couple Spanish-language tracks.

His full-length, Ultra, is set for release on March 6.  Until then, go to his website for a free download of “Leda Atomica.” Stream samples of his upcoming album, Ultra, below.

Check out his cover of “The Killing Moon,” not a crazy divergence from Echo & The Bunnymen‘s original in 1984 but nothing to be disappointed about either! (more…)

Pretty Lights – “We Must Go On” x “I Know The Truth” x Led Zepplin

January 31st, 2012 by | Electronic Dance Music |

pretty lights

Derek Vincent Smith, aka Pretty Lights, has seen his popularity rise exponentially since he began dropping awesomely soulful hip-hop beats on the people of Colorado. The man with the awesome electric shows, and the bangin samples sprinkled throughout his music, truly represents everything that is right in the world of Electronic music. To say that Pretty Lights is a DJ would be an insult to this man; constantly mixing live and sampling all kinds of different genres, his concerts are more of an experience than anything else.

One of his newest tracks, I Know The Truth, was created with technology that dates back to the 1960’s; he even pressed his own vinyl in order to get the grungy feeling that he achieved on the track. His light shows bedazzle his fans and leave them asking for more once he plays his last track. Pretty Lights even created his own label signing artists of similar nature, and offering all the music to be downloaded for free, that is the spirit of EDM and Derek embraces it wholeheartedly.

Hidden Gem: Kosha Dillz *indie rap

January 30th, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap |

Kosha Dillz will probably go down as one of the most famous jewish rappers of the 21st century. After seeing him live for the 2nd time in late 2011, I became a big fan as he’s a crowd pleaser and really a talented MC.

Recently he’s been doing lots of shows, putting out new tracks over once a month and killing the hip-hop game with press all over. Here’s my three recent favorites from the Jewish rapper from New Jersey.

PAZ – “Look at My Ghosts” x “Drake vs Big Sean” *2 banging new mashup/covers

January 30th, 2012 by | Mashup, Mashup Monday |

Here’s two mashup/cover’s that are new and fresh from PAZ. He recently dropped a mashup, singing “Look At Me Now” over some Deadmau5. The song is called “Look At My Ghosts”, is remixed by Drunk Panda. This is the 2nd single from Young Broke & Fameless II, set for release early 2012.

Next is another mashup that PAZ did, mashing Drake‘s “I’m On One” vs Big Sean‘s “My Last”. This is an acoustic mashup with a real chill vibe anybody could like.

Video: SomeWhere Else – Bunkers *alternative hip-hop

January 29th, 2012 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video |

I think SomeWhere Else is onto a new music movement or just trying to offer something safer and more alternative hip-hop vibe than what’s coming from Odd Future. Either way, I think I dig this song but it definitely is not in my favorites from the hip-hop band with 3 MCs and a guitarist.

However for a debut video from the LA hip-hop band, I think they really jumped onto the scene with quality production. According to P&P, the group is getting ready to release the upcoming project The SWEM (The SomeWhere Else Manifesto).

Watch the official video to “Bunkers” below.
