So I decided to create a rather unconventional music post today. Get ready to be INSPIRED.

I’ve recently helped some friends of mine launch a clothing line called the  ADAMO Collection. The whole idea behind this company is to provide a platform for rebelliously creative young people to pursue their passions, collaborate with each other, and express themselves freely. As a forward thinking company centered on passion and creativity, we look forward to working with bands, DJs, music blogs, etc!

Needless to say, launching a clothing line sure isn’t easy and 18 hour workdays are not unheard of. In order to stay sane and keep inspiration flowing, we blast music on our sick sound system 24/7. I thought it’d be neat to share some of these tunes with you guys and so I’ve compiled a playlist of some of our most listened to tracks on spotify. I’ve included everything from electronica/dubstep artists like Pendulum, Doctor P, Flux Pavilion, Emancipator, The Glitch Mob, Benny Benassi, and Steve Aoki, to more indie/alternative tracks from bands like The Naked and Famous, The Civil Wars, and M83. I also threw in some Tinie Tempah, Coldplay, and Claude Debussy. I think my favorite track has gotta be Pendulum’s The Island ( Dusk til Dawn remix). SOOO GOOD.

Tinie Tempah – “Til’ I’m Gone” (featuring Wiz Khalifa) [Music Video + MP3]

July 6th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video, Pop |

This came out last week but above is the official music video to an awesome collaboration that Tinie Tempah and Wiz Khalifa did. It’s called “Til’ I’m Gone” and it is only a matter of time before this is played on repeat on various radio stations. It has a catchy beat with great rapping by the pair; not to mention the visuals are awesome. Enjoy!

Chase & Status – Hitz ft. Tinie Tempah (video + mp3)

June 15th, 2011 by | Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video |

Earlier this week Chase & Status and Tinie Tempah released the official music video to “Hitz”. Today was the first time I heard of this dope collaboration and after hearing the song a couple times, I think it’s a solid collaboration but just shows that more people need to work with the talented duo Chase & Status. Here’s “Hitz”.

Review: Tinie Tempah, iSquare & Azad Right at The Key Club

June 4th, 2011 by | Concert/Festival Review, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop, Reviews |

Last night I saw a fun sample/remix filled show with four varied acts which consisted of Azad Right, Rob Roy (ugh), iSquare and the UK hip-hop superstar, Tinie Tempah. This show took place at The Key Club in Los Angeles. Here’s my review:

After getting to know Azad Right much better during our pre-performance interview before his 1st hip-hop show, I was really looking forward to hearing the new songs he mentioned he was going to try out on the crowd. Azad Right is a poet but you wouldn’t even know it… sorry I had to rhyme while I got your time.

Anyway, Azad Right was an excellent opener as he got the crowd fairly pumped with his variety of hip-hop from electronic and pop based beats to the Coldplay-sampled “Spiderwebs”. He got a few other artists in his team to get on stage which actually hurt his performance when two other artists/friends of his lip-synced and overall didn’t do anything on stage. However when he busted out an acapella freestyle for about 30 seconds with the DJ eventually dropping a dope beat without interrupting his freestyle, that’s when the crowd got pumped up again. Finishing with his hit song, “Spiderwebs” was a perfect choice as it got the crowd real pumped for the next act. This was my 2nd favorite song he performed (the freestyle was the best!).

Next came Rob Roy. As someone once told me, if you have nothing good to say, don’t say anything at all. I have absolutely nothing good to say about Rob Roy so let’s just move on.

iSquare hopped on stage next. This pop/hip-hop/R&B group is the 2nd coming of Black Eyed Peas. Seriously they know how to pump up a crowd! Even though all but 1 or 2 songs was a remix/sample to some popular artist like Journey, they still killed it by being fun, engaging and performing catchy tunes. The choreographed dance was a bit much as the stage didn’t seem to quite fit how good their dancing could have been. Overall iSquare is one talented group and it’s only a matter of time until Interscope Records invests some more money in marketing them to stardom. Below is “Hey Sexy Lady”, unfortunately their only memorable song but easily a mainstream radio hit.

Lastly came Tinie Tempah. This show went quicker than I though so when he came on stage fairly early, I figured his set would be at least 30 minutes. However Tinie Tempah only gave us about 20 minutes of great music. I have too many favorites from Tinie and don’t remember a song I didn’t like as he got the crowd pumped with his electronic, pop and rock based hip-hop. Mostly I remember jumping up and down, bobbing my head and throwing my hands in the air to just about every song. Below is two of my favorites he performed, “Pass Out” and “Miami 2 Ibiza” which samples Swedish House Mafia. Plus I added a recent Tinie Tempah song that we haven’t blogged about yet and features Wiz Khalifa.
Tinie Tempah – Miami 2 Ibiza (feat. Swedish House Mafia)
Tinie Tempah – Til Im Gone feat Wiz Khalifa
Tinie Tempah – Pass Out
Overall I would give this show a 4 out of 5 as three out of four artists did a great job and the music kept getting better and better, minus act #2, Rob Roy. Azad Right showed he can rock a big stage and get the crowd pumped, iSquare showed that once they have more original music, they can easily headline venues like these, and Tinie Tempah brought the house down with his fun party hip-hop.

Tinie Tempah – “So Addicted” (featuring Bei Maejor)

May 17th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

There is no question that Tinie Tempah has blown up in the United States in recent months even though he has been quite popular in the UK for a very long time now. He bring in Bei Maejor to help create his newest track “So Addicted” and I gotta say, this will soon be a radio hit. Enjoy!

Tinie Tempah – Wonderman ft. Ellie Goulding

September 29th, 2010 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop |
Here’s a really good electro/hip-hop song by UK’s Tinie Tempah featuring fellow UK musician Ellie Goulding. The track is set to appear on Tinie’s upcoming debut album Disc-Overy which drops in the UK on October 4th. This song is also rumored to be his next single which makes sense since this track is awesome.

So Evan forgot to play this new Tinie Tempah on Before the Bigs Radio today. No worries, listen and download below.

Prospect of the Week: Tinie Tempah

September 10th, 2010 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Prospect of the Week |

Tinie Tempah is an English rapper born in London. He plans to release his debut album, Disc-Overy on October 4 through Parlophone records. His music is considered grime hip-hop and he has collaborated recently with Kelly Rowland, Snoop Dogg, and Mr. Hudson to name a few, and even toured with Rihanna for part of her 10-date UK tour in May 2010.

Once Tinie Tempah’s album drops, I believe he is going to make a bigger impact in the US like he has already done in the UK, with “Pass Out” and “Frisky” reaching UK Gold and UK Silver, respectively.

Listen and download his latest song featuring Kelly Rowland, “Invincible”, and two of my other favorites, “Written in the Stars” and “Pass Out (Remix)” featuring Chiddy Bang.  Tinie Tempah feat.
