I attended the last night of 8th Grader’s residency at The Satellite through Joel’s Dance Yrself Clean party in Silverlake and had a fantastic time singing and dancing a bit along to 8th Grader‘s Neo R&B/indie electro pop vibes. We also talk his new showcase, KILLER DISKO, more info here.

image002 385x600 Preview: The six must see musicians performing at Pacific Festival 2014!This Saturday August 16 marks the 3rd annual Pacific Festival which will be held at The Dunes in Newport Beach, California. It’s a great location with DJs and bands performing on or near the beach, there should be beautiful weather present and hopefully a laid back fun ambiance in what should be a very fun one-day music festival. This will be my third time attending the Southern California festival in which I’ve discovered some real talented artists. Here’s the set times:

c3e4d78e9c6511e39d7812ff38e342a5 8 600x600 Review: Penguin Prison live at EchoplexSaturday night I saw one of the best performances of a DJ singing ever in Brooklyn’s Chris Glover aka Penguin Prison performing live at Echoplex. The only other DJ who also sang that possibly rivals how awesome of a performance I saw Saturday night might be that of Mystery Skulls back in October at Culture Collide Festival. (more…)

Thank You Thursday #2 – Thanksgiving Edition

November 28th, 2013 by | Alternative/Indie, Electronic Dance Music, House, Music Video, New Wave, Pop, Rock |

thanksgiving Thank You Thursday #2   Thanksgiving Edition

It’s Thanksgiving (or close to it… hey we all got things to do!) and it wouldn’t be right to not give a quick THANK YOU to some dope ass artists that have done some dope ass shit this year.  To keep it nice and concise I’m just gonna touch on one dope thing they did that was original and/or creative and/or unique and/or interesting.  If you don’t know what this is or why I do it please go here for a quick explanation.

Noir x Lomez x Atnarko – Lost Again (Feat. Symbol)

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Is pretty much all I can say. This shit is so damn sexy and cool and right it kinda hurts.  Production, Melody, Composition, bass chord progression, lyrics, etc. Not to mention it has that new wave vibe to it that I have always absolutely love.  One of the best parts of the song is the very tasteful bridge that comes in and introduces a whole new section of the song and it kinda almost takes off (if that makes any sense) at 2:55. Pretty cool that Pete Tong made this an Essential New Tune also. Thankful to have worked with Symbol in the past. Great shit has been made here.

Walking Shapes – Keep

The whole video is ridiculously well shot and the song is amazingly well written.  The first thing (along with many) that struck me as impressive was the whole Indie aesthetic of the video to go with the indie-rock song. Nate HoHo (lead singer/front man in the video) had a stellar performance coupled in with the tasteful nudity that was 100% well placed all made sense.  Great pay off at the end too. Dude is a visionary. Much respect, THANK YOU! slightly NSFW

Pre10d *Full Album*

16 minutes for a whole album? Yes, I could take a few lessons in this. Thank you for showing me that a short and concise album can be done and effective. Interesting beats, direct (and indirect) lyrics at times that actually are saying a lot (and nothing) all at the same time. Got a dope track with him and LAZERlibby coming out in 2014. THANK YOU!

Carolyn Malachi – Finally
Love this lyrics video & song. Love the over the top dramatic facial features of every word. Love her whole brand packaging.  THANK YOU!

Lazerbitch – Bass Goes Boom [Feat. Symbol]
Music don’t always gotta be so cereal, right?! Great Beat, Great Rhymes, Great Hook. But the video… very very well done with very minimal resources. The strip club shots were all pro looking. NSFW?! maybe. 100% dope though. THANK YOU!

“Two of the most powerful words in the English language for bringing about change, Daren, are “thank you.” Especially when offered before the change even occurs and everything still looks pretty much like it did yesterday. ”
