Video: BenniB – Forever (ft. Britni Elise)

March 28th, 2012 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video |

 Video: BenniB   Forever (ft. Britni Elise)Here’s a heart-felt video from BenniB called “Forever”. It’s in memory of Carly Henley, a 20-year old University of Washington student and singer/songwriter who died about a year and a half ago.

The song is pretty powerful lyrically as most of BenniB‘s tunes are. Not my favorite song but hard not to feel something when hearing the song and watching the video.

Watch the official video to “Forever” below.

Soundcloud’s Best: November *Silver Medallion, Mike Irish, Tune In Crew, BenniB, U Nu

December 1st, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Dance, Electro, Hip-Hop/Rap, House, Soundcloud's Best |

soundcloud logo black 600x293 Soundclouds Best: November *Silver Medallion, Mike Irish, Tune In Crew, BenniB, U NuIt’s that time of the month again for the best soundcloud submissions from the month of November. We got a new Soundcloud so feel free to send us new music there or just email us at beforethebigs@gmail.com if you got some new tunes you think we will dig.

The most recent submission we got was from a guy named U Nu (pronounced: oo – noo). U Nu combines electronic and organic sounds out there, drawing elements from the indie rock and electronic world, while not shying away from hip hop beats, latin rhythms, instrumental freakouts, beatboxing, and sampling a guy scratching his beard (among other things). As of two weeks ago, U Nu released his first album “Summer of Rain”. The album is entirely composed, performed, recorded, edited, mixed, and mastered by him; he even did all of the artwork! So? Enticed? I recommend going to his bandcamp if you want the full album experience. Stream “Mind The Gap” below.

Next we got a killer remix from the Tune In Crew. They remixed the Kelly Rowland/Big Sean song, “Lay It On Me”, giving it an electro banger feel. Here’s what they said about their remix:

This time we’ve chosen to make it progressive, melting electro, pop and urban trends, for a track most of all designed to set the Dancefloor on fire!

Listen and download “Lay It On Me”, remixed by Tune In Crew.

We are proud to introduce you to Boston electronic house DJ Mike Irish. His latest banger, “Technicolor”, is a must-listen and Mike Irish is a DJ you need to keep an eye on as he has loads of potential just from what you hear off “Technicolor”.

We are also proud to introduce you to Seattle MC BenniB. He sent us three songs off his latest mixtape, Journal of a Journey. Out of the three songs, I enjoyed “I Won’t Crash” the most. Being from Seattle, he reminds me of Macklemore and some other white alternative hip-hop acts out there today. I think he’s got potential as he further defines his sound and hopefully makes it sound more different than the other rising Seattle MCs out there.

I saved the best for last with Silver Medallion‘s new single, “Stars”. This actually came out in October and was Silver Medallion‘s second release on DJ Benzi‘s Get Right Records.This uptempo house track proves Silver Medallion has a bright future in the music industry.
