Yesterday, I attended the Mad Decent Block Party in Los Angeles. I saw performances from Zeds Dead, Theophilus London, Munchi, Paul Devro, 3Ball MTY, Bonde Do Role, Clockwork, Casey Veggies and Paper Diamond. I pretty much saw every act I wanted to and saw at least one that reaffirmed my belief he will not be a breakout star. Read my review below. (more…)
Not sure how I would describe this song. Kanga creates a mix of drum & bass with some weird dubstep that isn’t annoying. Shout out to @IamJove for sending this our way. Stream below and keep an eye out on Kanga!
I couldn’t find a cover art so I decided to post a conversation between two musicians who sometimes can be quite delusional about the world around them.
The SOLAR MAXIMUS EP features Indian Tabla drum rhythms on top of African and North American drum rhythms and treatments from Konrad OldMoney, one to watch this summer! Expect his name along side some of the most influential, progressive, Electronica, Dance, and World Music producers in the industry.
Konrad OldMoney is defining Global Bass on a large scale and the SOLAR MAXIMUS EP is just the first of many Global Bass projects to come. Stream and DOWNLOAD.
The day the earth finally blows up , at least we will be dancing like fools on drugs. Here’s an EXCLUSIVE global bass remix sound produced by Konrad OldMoney (of Smokey Robotic). This remix is off the new project called SOLAR MAXIMUS EP, which Konrad is releasing to the public on Thursday.
I think the “What You Mean” remix is a good dance song and shows how talented Konrad OldMoney is with remixing. Stream and download below.
If you like what you heard above, visit Konrad OldMoney‘s soundcloud for more global bass remixes and look out for Solar Maximus EP dropping this Thursday!
Mathieu Santos, founding member of Ra Ra Riot, went solo last year with his art-rock album Massachusetts 2010. Nearly a year later, Santos finally enriches us with the official video for “Northern Mentality.” Directed and composed by Cole Hannon, the video is just as abstract as the drum & bass driven track. With mind-altering (and Santos altering, actually) visuals, the Santos mutations combo’d with the percussion are 21st century hypnotherapy at its best.
Watch the official video to “Northern Mentality” below. (more…)

One of our awesome writers, DJ Burnout, dropped #hashtag yesterday, a 19-track mashup album. Here’s what he had to say about it:
I am extremely proud to bring to you #hashtag. The theme of the album is obscurity. These tracks, despite having ridiculous track titles, contain incredible vibes that will instantaneously strike a nerve in your brain that makes you want to RAGE! With obscurity comes insanity, and that’s exactly what these tracks bring. Mostly with heavy bass and old school lyrics, #hashtag combines the best music from the past and present to produce the future of music.
