Last Friday night, we were blessed to see Electro-Pop group Mansions On The Moon (MOTM) absolutely dominate the stage at Dim Mak Records in Hollywood. It was an album release party for their Light Years EP which is amazing. Take a listen below:
Make sure to check them out every Monday this month at their residency at The Central SAPC. They put on a great act!
Gotta tell ya, Rockstar Jones track “BOMBS”, dropped a BOMB on my playlist. It has a sweet bass, that’ll have your woofers going for hours! I can’t believe this video has less than 5,000 views, it deserves many more, just got to give this guy sometime.
Rockstar Jones is currently working on his project entitled Better Than Good scheduled to release May 22nd.
Watch the official music video, “BOMBS”, below. (more…)
Finally a new track from The Dean’s List. We have been promoting their music for quite a while and though “Hollywood” is not their best track they have ever produced, it is still awesome! It’s off their upcoming project Generation X which is sure to be quite impressive. They have been widely successful off of only two mixtapes. Now this is their chance to take their talents to the next level and I know they will succeed. Generation X is due to drop on April 3rd. In the meantime, enjoy!
Radio Black is a Hollywood based Electro Hip-Hop duo working on their debut mixtape. They sound like Beastie Boys meets Boys Noize and LMFAO. Consisting of Los Angeles based Rich Black and Dez, the group combines Hip-Hop, Dubstep, House, Rock and Punk inspirations to create a hybrid sound that will make the dance floor shake.
Below is a multi-track set from Radio Black which includes their latest song a remix to Lana Del Rey‘s “Video Games” in which they turn the singer’s voice into a chipmunk, add some funky beats and rap over the song.
So I saw The Dance Party twice last week, once in East Los Angeles and the 2nd most recent time last Friday night in the heart of Hollywood at Room 86. I really liked this show because both artists have been featured on our Best You’ve Never Heard mixes. Click more to read my review of The Dance Party and Das Tapes performance at Room 86.
Last Thursday night was a party in Hollywood when the Pledge to Rage Tour stopped at Key Club to put on a great show. iLLie, OnCue and The Dean’s List rocked the place with style making an overall enjoyable show. I have been following these three acts for a long time and to see them all on stage for one event was truly a great experience.
Our night started off we with iLLiE, an alternative hip-hop/rock group from right in Los Angeles. They are small and not very well known. However, after their performance, I believe they gained a handful of new fans. Their unique style and energy really got the crowd interested. My favorite track by them that they performed is “D.G.A.F.” (Don’t Give A Fuck). Enjoy it below:
While Gilbere Forte was performing, we had the honor of interviewing OnCue back stage before his set. They interview will be up on the site later this month but he is a really cool guy and it was a total success. When it was time for him to go on stage, he absolutely lit it up. I always knew he was a very talented rapper but I had way more respect for him and his skills after seeing him live. He reminds me of a young Atmosphere. My all time favorite track by him is “Feel Tall” and that was in my opinion his best song he performed during his set. Enjoy!
Finally, to end the night was the main act, The Dean’s List. As you all know we have been following and promoting this group since pretty much the beginning back in April 2010. As a matter of fact, they are one of the main reasons why we decided to start up this website, to market young up-and-comers such as this hip-hop group. This was only the second time I saw them perform. The first time was back in September 2010, way before their hit mixtape The Drive-In dropped. Now, that I got to hear many of The Drive-In tracks live, I’ve come to even further acknowledge this groups true potential. They got that crowd jumping up and down with lots of energy. Not a dull moment occurred during their set with every song being a huge success. My favorite of theirs was “Dear Professor”. Enjoy!
