Mashup Monday + Ticket giveaway: Kids & Explosions

September 17th, 2012 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Before Bigs Exclusive, Mashup, Mashup Monday |

 Mashup Monday + Ticket giveaway: Kids & ExplosionsWho is Kids & Explosions? K & E is Josh Raskin, an Oscar-nominated filmmaker (I Met the Walrus) turned mash-up artist. His LP Shit Computer offers a collection of some of Raskin’s own favorite tracks, which are reinterpreted and rearranged into glitchy and nostalgia-filled songs (this is his signature strategy). Genres are mixed and numerous samples of various songs turn hybrid in Shit Computer, revealing Raskin’s dexterity in transforming looped layers into tracks that sound fresh and new. Just listen to “Everything”, where he whisks a little of Eminem‘s “Lose It” with Slash’s guitar salute in the GNR classic “Sweet Child O’ Mine.” Stream & download Shit Computer below.

If you dig this music and are in the LA area on Wednesday night, see how you can win two tickets to Kids & Explosions at The Central SAPC on 9/19.

Review: The Hood Internet at @TheCentralSAPC

August 6th, 2012 by | Concert/Festival Review, Mashup, Mashup Monday |

250784538673343240 24829665 600x600 Review: The Hood Internet at @TheCentralSAPCLast Friday, I attended my favorite music venue in Santa Monica, The Central SAPC, for a dj set from mashup duo, The Hood Internet. However, only 1 member of The Hood Internet spun,  STV SLV as I experience when I saw them last time as well.

Even with 1 dude spinning, Hood Internet took over the event, with people cramming in the main room of the venue to dance to their indie-electronic/hip-hop mashups. Hood Internet spun for over an hour and he didn’t just press play like I saw White Panda, Steve Aoki and many other DJs do.

Hood Internet also had rapper Kenan Bell come on stage for an original track they worked on together so it was nice to see that Hood Internet has diversified their music with remixes and originals added to the live set with the mashups.

My 3 favorites from the night although I love all their mashups live, truly a fun dance party!


Ryan Hemsworth – Slowed Summer X Hyperbolic Chamber Music

August 1st, 2012 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Mashup |

hemsworth art 600x600 Ryan Hemsworth   Slowed Summer X Hyperbolic Chamber Music

Ryan Hemsworth gets my vote for producer/artist of the summer of 2012. Or at the very least he gets tied with Danny Brown and Party Supplies. Either way, it’s pretty good company to be in.

The Nova Scotia producer had his breakout moment a few months ago, producing the 22-minute opus to pimping, Hyperbolic Chamber Music, curated by Brooklyn clothing designer, Mishka. The beat is reminiscent of cheesy-1980′s smooth R&B, but there is nothing actually cheesy about the track. The Hemsworth beat with 20+ underground rappers on it makes for the perfect extended mix to drive to the beach with the windows down. My friends and I and have been doing it at least once a week.

With the theme of summer in mind, Hemsworth just dropped his latest mixtape, the aptly-titled, Slowed Summer. While being more of  just a mash-up mix than HCM, Slowed Summer brings the chill vibes (and some Ludacris samples!!!).

You can follow Hemsworth on Twitter and check out some of his older material on BandCamp.
