41783 135179529834422 5830 n Hidden Gem: Mike Irish *New York Producer/DJMike Irish is a producer/DJ from New York. After extensive production work for numerous hip-hop, RnB, pop, folk and electronic artists over the past year, his production style has grown to be diverse, multi-faceted, and unique, and his conceptual and musical capabilities continue to grow with every new track. Irish takes pride in his ability to fluidly move between different musical genres and production styles while continuing to put unique touches on his music.

He’s released tons of music for free on soundcloud, but here’s his latest two tracks, the first, “Summer Breeze Chillin”, an original production and the second track is a mashup between Skrillex and Watch The Throne.

Soundcloud’s Best: December *VVS1, BAKER, Damien J. Carter, Brother K, DJ Onlii1

January 5th, 2012 by | Soundcloud's Best |

soundcloud logo Soundclouds Best: December *VVS1, BAKER, Damien J. Carter, Brother K, DJ Onlii1A 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.

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!

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.
