Preview: Brokechella 2014 *best LA value festival of 2014

April 4th, 2014 by | Concert/Festival Review, Guest Mix |

brokechella poster final 2 1 485x600 Preview: Brokechella 2014 *best LA value festival of 2014A festival I had an unforgettable experience at because of the art, the underrated music, the hospitality of event staffers and overall fun in such a local scene was Brokechella 2012. Last year I couldn’t attend because of Coachella and this year personally won’t be able to attend but that doesn’t mean I won’t have awesome friends covering the festival for me while I enjoy Coachella weekend 2.

For those in Southern California that can’t afford Coachella and are into more intimate festival scenes, then Brokechella is for you! With over 50 musicians performing and even comedians this year, it’s sure to be a festival worth going to. For $10, that’s less than 50 cents an artist and you know the people of cARTel know how to throw a super fly dope fun event for all. Now it’s in 4th year, Brokechella is sure to be one of the most talked about and underrated events of the season in Los Angeles and I highly recommend any music and/or comedy fan to check it out as you will have as great a time I did two years ago attending this Downtown LA event.

For more info on Brokechella, visit Brokechella.com and purchase tickets here. Because I’m pretty pumped the event has continued for the 4th year in a row, I’ve created a playlist of 15 artists from Brokechella to look forward to including BtB favorites Azad RightWarm BrewVerbs and many more!

Pacific Festival: The Dunes 2012 preview + official festival mix

August 21st, 2012 by | Before Bigs Exclusive, Daily Mix, Guest Mix |

Pacific Festival The Dunes Sept 2 2012 385x600 Pacific Festival: The Dunes 2012 preview + official festival mixSouthern California’s Pacific Festival: The Dunes 2012 is quickly approaching and I thought I would provide some details into one of the most underrated festivals in California. Not only is there a great variety of music from retro soul crooner Mayer Hawthorne to daytime disco duo Poolside to probably the best electro-dance pop/rock band ever, Capital Cities, this is a festival you don’t want to miss on Sunday September 2! This festival will be set against the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean at The Dunes in Newport Beach with DJ sets from plenty of up-and-comers you need to see live including Bag Raiders, Goldroom andMiami Horror to name a few.

The best way for me to express my excitement for Pacific Festival (which we reviewed last year), is to once again provide the “unofficial” Pacific Festival 2012 mixtape, which features 15 of my favorite songs from the acts performing at this year’s festival. Stream the 15-track mix below as well as the official “Pacific Festival: The Dunes 2012″ mix. Purchase tickets here and visit PacificFestival.com for more info on this must-see event that added the people behind Identity Festival to make this year’s festival even more of a rager! (more…)

 Exclusive Guest Mix: CONT^CT   MastaBlastaHere’s an exclusive guest mix from Syracuse University DJ CONT^CT. Read about his “MastaBlasta” Spring Break 2012 mix below:

With this mix I wanted to highlight some new songs of 2012 alongside classic sounds. I also tried to make the mix hit harder than some of my previous mixes, utilizing heavy anthems. Included are songs from up and coming producers such as Nicky Romero, Quintino, and Mat Zo along with my remix of Ann Lee’s “Voices”. I hope you enjoy it and blast it while on spring break. Enjoy!

BeforeBigs exclusive: DLake – The Baby Maker [Valentine's Day DJ Mix]

February 14th, 2012 by | Before Bigs Exclusive, Daily Mix, Guest Mix, R&B |

DLake The Baby Maker ARTWORK 600x468 BeforeBigs exclusive: DLake   The Baby Maker [Valentines Day DJ Mix]As promised here is my latest DJ Mix “The Baby Maker” just in time for Valentine’s Day. It’s a tongue in cheek alternative R&B (think the dream, drake, andre 3k, the weeknd, frank ocean, etc.) slower type of mix made for… well BABY MAKING! haha. It’s a no brainer and was a really nice change of pace to mix up some slower jams that I actually listen to and vibe to on my own time when i’m not trying to make the next club banger.

Since featuring Charlie on Best You’ve Never Heard 5, Darker’s following has only increased.

Music. Fashion. Collaboration. The Future of NOW.

407859 10151134256445121 234485505120 22531387 1672145235 n 600x400 Music. Fashion. Collaboration. The Future of NOW.

 

So I decided to create a rather unconventional music post today. Get ready to be INSPIRED.

I’ve recently helped some friends of mine launch a clothing line called the  ADAMO Collection. The whole idea behind this company is to provide a platform for rebelliously creative young people to pursue their passions, collaborate with each other, and express themselves freely. As a forward thinking company centered on passion and creativity, we look forward to working with bands, DJs, music blogs, etc!

Needless to say, launching a clothing line sure isn’t easy and 18 hour workdays are not unheard of. In order to stay sane and keep inspiration flowing, we blast music on our sick sound system 24/7. I thought it’d be neat to share some of these tunes with you guys and so I’ve compiled a playlist of some of our most listened to tracks on spotify. I’ve included everything from electronica/dubstep artists like Pendulum, Doctor P, Flux Pavilion, Emancipator, The Glitch Mob, Benny Benassi, and Steve Aoki, to more indie/alternative tracks from bands like The Naked and Famous, The Civil Wars, and M83. I also threw in some Tinie Tempah, Coldplay, and Claude Debussy. I think my favorite track has gotta be Pendulum’s The Island ( Dusk til Dawn remix). SOOO GOOD.
