Review: Com Truise at Echoplex

March 10th, 2014 by | Ambient, Concert/Festival Review, Dance, Electro |

74c58908a3f611e39afc122e3f5a0d70 8 600x600 Review: Com Truise at EchoplexA couple Friday’s ago I saw Com Truise at Echoplex. This show felt like being in the game Tron but with drugs like speed and cocaine to enhance your skills in the game. It was almost surreal, especially since Com Truise had the lights going in accordance to the beats he was making; truly a sweet show to be at although some vocals would be nice. I really enjoyed all of it as the music puts you in a trance to dance and feels great but I would love some damn vocalist on stage with Com Truise, that would make things really interesting.

Anyways it’s tough to pick a favorite but the most memorable was probably “Brokendate”. Watch the interesting video for that song below.

Anyways, I don’t remember a ton of what he spun, but when he performed 2009 Duck Sauce hit “Anyway” and the latest Duck Sauce single, 2013′s “It’s You”. Oh and also his 1996 classic, “The Funk Phenomena”; watch music video’s for those three songs below.

January 3rd, 2013 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Electro, Electropop, Hidden Gem, synthpop |

WOLF TRIAGLE 586x600 Hidden Gem: Story of the Running Wolf *LA Electro duoStory of the Running Wolf is an electro duo based out of Los Angeles, CA. A little bit retro, a little bit future, they blend 80′s influences like Depeche Mode and Duran Duran with modern electro-dance elements, creating an infectious sound that’s all their own. After playing their first show at a rooftop party in early 2012, the band began developing a live show experience which has been described as a “John Hughes party on Neptune”, replete with neon lasers, make-up, fog and feathers. Their new self-titled EP is available for free download at www.sotrw.com.

They just dropped their first song/video from their debut EP, “Stratospheric”. Stream and download their EP below.

3922491835cf11e2974722000a1fb774 7 600x600 Review: Go Go Bizkitt! and The Phantoms Revenge at @TheCentralSAPCLast Wednesday, I experienced the funky sounds of Go Go Bizkitt! and The Phantom’s Revenge at The Central SAPC in Santa Monica, CA. Both DJs were awesome with Go Go Bizkitt spinning that funky disco house vibes all night while The Phantom’s Revenge played mostly disco house with some trap music and some electro vibes. One of my favorite parts of this dance party show was hearing both of the acts remix Daft Punk.

Stream some of my favorite songs from the two rising DJs below.

Hidden Gem: Kids At The Bar *rising electro duo

November 12th, 2012 by | Electro, Hidden Gem, House, Remix |

KidsAtTheBar e1290928996278 copy Hidden Gem: Kids At The Bar *rising electro duoI’ve been following Kids at The Bar since seeing them live in late 2011 in which they opened for disco house DJ Treasure Fingers at Avalon Hollywood. Since then, they released some massive remixes and in the last month released tow electro bangesr you need to hear!

The latest is an original they released with Whiiite that you can get on beatport. It’s called Tormet and has an electro-house vibe that builds real smoothly into a high energy EDM banger.

Then a few weeks back, Kids at the Bar released a remix to one of their all-time favorite tracks, Justice‘s “DVNO”. It’s a massive banger and been getting positive feedback everywhere they’ve played it.

Download: MiMoSA – SWRV *electro trap shit

October 17th, 2012 by | Electro |

artworks 000032313341 3cnv0q crop Download: MiMoSA   SWRV *electro trap shitSo MiMoSA has released a new free song that has trap written all over it. At first I really hated trap music but after listening to it enough, I guess you just realize that it’s just DJs making fun of the horrible, dull lyrics and simple beats that mainstream hip-hop/rap radio stations are playing today. It seems all the music that becomes popular today has an electronic base which I enjoy but the lyrics have definitely become more dull for today’s technology-driven and socially-numb generation. Anyways I’m probably not hitting it exactly on the head so I will stick to providing you fun free music.

Get crunk, scream “YEA” more than Lil Jon and Stream and download “SWRV” below.

Hidden Gem: Adventure Galley + upcoming show at @TheCentralSAPC

September 27th, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Before Bigs Exclusive, Dance, Electro, Electronic Rock, Electropop, Hidden Gem, Music Video, Rock |

oct 1 revised 463x600 Hidden Gem: Adventure Galley + upcoming show at @TheCentralSAPCThe next upcoming indie dance band you need to follow is Oregon indie dance rock band Adventure Galley. I first heard “Weekend Lovers” sometime over the summer but somehow got lost in the shuffle of dance music that I love moving to.

However @BenOprstu contacted me about Adventure Galley doing a show at my favorite Santa Monica music venue next Monday. I watched the “Weekend Lovers” video and realized why I dig their upbeat electro-synth indie rock vibes so he asked me if @BeforeBigs wanted to co-produce the show with From The Hip LA. After watching “Weekend Lovers” and listening to “Marooned” and “Addict”, I knew this was a special band making music they like to call Glow Wave.

To attend this 21+ event at The Central SAPC this upcoming Monday, purchase $8 advance tickets or pay $10 at the door. Now onto some fun music! (more…)
