A little late on this but I couldn’t forget to provide a shout out to our best soundcloud submissions of December 2011. Once again, I’m digging that we are getting submissions from all sorts of musicians and encourage all musicians out there to send us your music.
VVS1 is an all original dubstep-hip/hop collaborative consisting of emcees Soupa and Dean Swift, singer Renzo, and producer/DJ Mike Irish. The group immediately sets an impressive tone with their first official release, “Pearl Harbor”, as they aim to pioneer a sound for the imminent fusion of the two genres of dubstep and hip-hop. The balance of crisp orchestration, fast-paced lyrical delivery and filthy drops provide a first look into the upcoming sounds of this genre-fusing group as they get ready for the release of their first EP in early February. Skys the limit with this group in terms of potential.

BAKER is an upcoming, unsigned pop/electronica musician in NYC. Already creating a heavy buzz with his high energy live shows, BAKER is coming up quick in the NYC pop scene. With collaborations with music industry heavy weights such as Kylie Minogue and J.Lo producers Cutfather and Damon Shape, BAKER is sure to garner attention from a large audience. Here’s my favorite BAKER track, “Convince Me” (DOWNLOAD).

Next comes another bootleg/mashup kind of song from DJ OnLii1. It mixes Daft Punk with Felguk and is called “Bassive Technologic”. Look out for some exclusive stuff between OnLii1 and BtB!

Brother K is an NYC-based garage/punk/blues outfit. Their songs draw on their experiences over the past five years: friends departing to the hereafter, others arriving out of the blue, out-of-control interior monologues. They also write songs about tiger moms – hence, the title track of their new EP, Claws and Stripes Forever.
