Before the Bigs Podcast Ep 1

So I’m definitely a little late on a top 14 tracks of 2014 list but better late than never right? Also this is my first episode of a new format we will be reporting awesome music, through podcasting! After four and a half years, writing about music has lost its luster and I’m excited to transition in talking about music and broadcasting it on soundcloud and in partnership with Radio KSCR. So below is the Soundcloud link of episode 1 of the podcast which is 1 hour and 10 minutes long, mostly music and me talking about why I love each of these songs as well as the 14 track playlist on Soundcloud as well if you don’t feel like listening to me.

Soundcloud’s Best: May ’12 *Jakato, Elevation, Legal Divide, Miele Isa

May 31st, 2012 by | Ambient, Dance, Disco, Drum & Bass, Electro, Pop, Rock, Soundcloud's Best |

Our soundcloud submissions this month consisted of mostly EDM, some really bad rap and some miscellaneous crap I’d rather not attempt to categorize. Below are the four best soundcloud submissions we got this month. (more…)

Soundcloud’s Best: April *Adam Abbot & 12 Planet, Pevin Kinel, Tunji and Adrian Lau

May 1st, 2012 by | Before Bigs Exclusive, Dubstep, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop, Soundcloud's Best |

Real busy week so I didn’t have a ton of time to explore all our soundcloud submissions of April but from what I did hear, these were my four favorites: (more…)

Soundcloud’s Best: March *Heights NS, Johnny Astro, Twin Falcons, Tyson Willert

April 1st, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Dance, Electropop, Hip-Hop/Rap, House, Pop, Soundcloud's Best |

Here’s 4 of the best song submissions from relatively unknown acts that more people need to know about including Heights NS, Johnny Astro, Twin Falcons and Tyson Willert. (more…)

Soundcloud’s Best: February *Sound Avatar, Mac Sharks, Kat Krazy, Jef-n-Tim

February 29th, 2012 by | Dance, Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Electro, House, Remix, Soundcloud's Best |

So we got four banging electronic songs that we believe were our best soundcloud song submissions of February. If you think you got tracks better than this, please share to our soundcloud dropbox. Check out all our best soundcloud submissions here.

First we got a three song set from Sound Avatar, whose cutting edge music production, creativity and innovation is ready to be showcased in his first full length EP. This EP ranges from Dubstep to Moombahcore, mixing dj experience, diverse drum patterns and heavy bass drops into one monstrous package.

Next comes Mac Sharks whose progressive house sound keeps us paying attention to his improvements as a DJ. This time he does a banging remix to Beyonce‘s “End of Time” so at least there’s excellent vocals to go along with the house style of Sharks.

Here’s another remix, this time from Kat Krazy to a Foster the People song. No it’s not a remix to “Pumped Up Kicks” but it’s to FTP’s next single “Don’t Stop”. This has Columbia and Sony Records behind it so you know Kat Krazy‘s has the support to become a huge DJ act. Keep an eye on this artist as they really change up the original FTP song adding some nice complexions in the electronic synths.

Lastly we got Jef-n-Tim with a track called “Woopie”. This has an electro-house sound, nice progressions to it and overall tells me the Jef-n-Tim duo have some potential.

Vote on your favorite track below!

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

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

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.

Cypher Clique – “The Message” *Old School Rap Feel

December 6th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

Are you like me and been craving hip-hop with an old school feel? If so, then this track is for you.  Cypher Clique uploaded “The Message” on Soundcloud a week ago and when I came across it, I was very impressed. It’s a slow hip-hop song but a good one. Reminds me of the old mixing with the new. kick back, relax and enjoy the track!

Watch the music video to “The Message” below. (more…)

Soundcloud’s best: August *Zach Majors, Zoo Legacy, DJ Invisiboy, Stigmah, DJ i6

August 31st, 2011 by | Alternative/Indie, Before Bigs Exclusive, Chill/Jam/Reggae, Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, Mashup, Pop, R&B, Remix, Rock, Soundcloud's Best |

Welcome to the August 2011 edition of Soundcloud’s Best, a monthly feature spotlighting the top 5 song submissions we received on our soundcloud.

First is a track that came out only an hour ago from Quincy Kwalae, Billy Van and Zach Majors. This track is remix/mashup collab with producer’s Billy Van and Quincy Kwalae and vocalist Zach Majors. They took the lyrics from Chris Brown’s “She Aint You” and Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature” and put them over an original electro-pop-dub beat. Watch the video shows in studio action.

Zoo Legacy is an up and coming indie rock and chill-hop band based out of Ottawa, Canada. Their fans have described Zoo Legacy’s sound as sort of like Kid Kudi meets N.E.R.D meets The xx.
Zoo Legacy – How Much Love 
Next comes mashup artist DJ Invisiboy with “Drop with the DJ” a mashup tribute to these artists: The Knocks, one of my favorite 90’s 1-hit wonder, Tag Team, and Jesse Marco. Invisiboy continues to impress with his upbeat fun party mashups.

Stigmah is a rapper/producer from Atlanta. The song is called “King Of Arcades” and it samples a punk rock song by Lupe Fiasco‘s neo-punk side project, Japanese Cartoon. This probably won’t be the last you hear from Stigmah on BtB as he uses interesting non-hip hop samples in his material from what I have heard so far.

Saving the best for last comes DJ i6, who created a banging party mashup with “Tonight”. This is the first single for DJ i6 off his upcoming mashup album, “Structure and Flow”, his third mashup project, which will be released September 6. One of the best party mashups I have heard in recent memory.

Soundcloud’s best: July *Bassanova & Moradzo, Chaz Kangas, Easy Does It and more!

August 1st, 2011 by | Before Bigs Exclusive, Chill/Jam/Reggae, Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, House, Mashup, Soundcloud's Best |

Here’s our best submissions from the month of July. Once again we are so happy to get even more diversity in sound and we wanted to give you some of that diverse sound from dance/electronic to hip-hop/rap, here’s our five best soundcloud submissions from the month of July.

Chill-hop/hip-pop music group Easy Does It has a relaxing sound. These guys got serious talent and don’t be surprised to hear more of their music on here. Follow Easy Does It: facebook
Feelin’ Like Ooh by Easy Does It

I generally hate posting music that you guys can’t download for free but this song is a hit! Might not be a smash hit in USA but it should be a hit in Holland, where the producers of the song are from and in Jamaica, where the lead vocalist is from. Get down to some electro-reggae with “Like A Star“! Follow Bassanova & Moradzo: facebook
Like A Star – Bassanova & Moradzo ft Calibe (BM XMix)

Here’s three more submissions we think are the best we got in July. (more…)
