First of all, The Ranch Party was awesome even though most of what I remember was being stuck in over an hour of traffic to check-in, the school bus ride that took us to and from the festival and how many people were camping out was ridiculous! Overall I had a great time and below I will recap most of what I remember at The Ranch Party which includes reviews of The Record Company, Neo Fresco, Terraplane Sun, Mansions on the Moon, and Kisses.

The Ranch is an epic live music benefit party, nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains of Los Angeles. In the spirit of the music scenes that came together in LA’s canyons, The Ranch Party allows you to come camp out at the top of Mulholland Drive for a full day & night of LA bands, Artists, DJs, food and drinks. The one-day festival takes place Saturday, music starting at 2pm and goes through the whole night with many emerging acts we are big fans. I’m most looking forward to seeing The Internet (of OFWGKTA), Mansions On The Moon, the drummer from Miami Horror(Good Night Keaton), Tropicool and Zak Waters.
For more details on the event, RSVP on facebook and visit TheRanchParty.com. It’s the best value concert coming up in LA as you can enjoy over 20 musicians in an all-day and night event for as little as $40 ($50 if you decide you want to camp out).
Here’s a 10-track playlist of the songs I can’t wait to hear live at The Ranch.
The playlist above doesn’t even include the chill summer vibes I expect Tropicool to spin, the electro house from Bones, and the trap from Neo Fresco.

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!
Once again the five best songs we received through soundcloud are a wide variety but sure to please the ears. Here’s Soundcloud’s Best for September. If you got music we need to hear, submit it to our Soundcloud.
Now for a group that if you are not familiar with them yet, you should be as they have a superfuture sound that is slowly catching on. Here’s Smokey Robotic‘s latest, “No Reality”, which features Redman! Haven’t heard from Redman in a while so that’s a great addition to quite an interesting song. No Reality (feat. Redman) by Smokey Robotic
Lastly comes another artist who has a fairly prominent feature on the blog, Aziz. The instrumental produced by No Studio is what caught my ear and the rapping from Aziz goes so well with this banging hip-hop anthem. My only question is, who the fuck is Clay Davis? Well I googled it and found out Clay Davis is a character from HBO’s The Wire and he was known for saying ”sheeeeee-it,” which the song ends with. I enjoy the song a bit more now knowing that. Aziz – Clay Davis

Mansions on the Moon has only been around a little over a year, yet they are already getting major attention. Their debut mixtape Paradise Falls was co-signed by Pharrell and Diplo, and featured collaborations with huge names like Xaphoon Jones, Deadmau5, and Big Gigantic. I got a chance to see them open for Mac Miller and Wiz on the Green Carpet tour, and these dudes definitely held it down in front of a huge crowd that seemed not ready for their style of indie/hip-hop/electro. If you haven’t download Paradise Falls yet, get it below:
The genre bending trio just dropped “Darkness,” the first single off their upcoming album Lightyears due out later this year. With the momentum they’ve built over their first year of existence as a band, I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.
