And a little bonus track since we do whatever we want around here.
Update: Stumbled upon this juicy visual too. Is Consequence getting ready to expose Mr. West? Check out Madbury Music’s write-up on the developing story.Read More
To be honest, I was completely hesitant about this track when I came across it. I had no faith that someone could turn this anthem off MBDTF into a decent dubstep track. Adam Jilek, or known as Ahab, has stepped up to the plate and smacked this one right out of the park. The addition of some big dubstep beats and complementary synth work just seem to gel all to well with an already great track. And so the dubstep train rolls on.
So the epic three day Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival ends tonight with a huge lineup of diversely talented musicians.

Wiz Khalifa – 6:45 – 7:35 on Coachella Stage (keep an eye on this stage for the night)

NaS & Damian Marley - 8:00 – 8:50 on Coachella
Death From Above 1979 - 9:10 – 10:00 on Coachella ***MUST SEE*** Here’s a recent clip of them rehearsing.

Holy shit. Donald Glover goes in over a pretty slick-sounding acoustic cover of Kanye West’s ‘All Of The Lights’. No one’s safe when this man picks up a mic. Definitely will be in the audience when he touches down in Toronto for his I Am Donald tour.
Thoughts on if Childish Gambino can make the jump to the mainstream? Notice any strengths, weaknesses in his game?Read More
For University students, it is common knowledge that the weekend starts on Thursday. What? Today is Thursday? That must mean a heavy dosing of dubstep!
This Kanye West remix is amazing and so is the the title. The remix keeps some of the essentials from the original track, such as the piano and rap breaks. But Calvertron (aka Booty Master) lays a heavy bass that sounds like someone’s voice distorted a thousand times over. Guaranteed banger.
I would vote this next track The Deadliest Drop of 2010 for obvious reasons. It gets deadlier with 2pac and friends in the mix. See for yourself.
The last one is from 18 year old Porter Robinson who shows some nice wobble and shake with this track. He will be playing Tabu in Guelph on April 7th, mark it down in your calendar. I wonder if they will serve him drinks?
Thrash on.Read More
I’ve been away from the internet way too long to even fathom catching up on everything that happened. The weekend was eventful for myself but I still got around to posting #FreshFridays and a review on Jay Electronica’s concert in Toronto. The week ahead is full of so much promise I can hardly breath just thinking about. Lots of original content on the horizon along with March Madness, St. Patrick’s Day and possibly attending a Laidback Luke concert. Shit’s looking trill. And make sure to join the Tournament Challenge group I made over at ESPN so I can run show. Okay below is a bunch of things that materialized over the last few days, the weekend was good for music.
- Sir Michael Rocks (of The Cool Kids) drops The Rocks Report mixtape
- A rough draft of the remix for ‘All Of The Lights’ surfaced with Lil Wayne, Drake, and Big Sean adding verses. I’m going to wait for the final version, which has a bigger lineup, before posting.
- Star Slinger‘s debut Volume 1 album is now available through Bandcamp for $5.
- Cee-Lo’s track ‘Bright Lights Bigger City’ gets a visual and remix treatment with Wiz Khalifa jumping on board.

Third part in the series and we’re not slowing down. Last week’s post blew the roof, so expectations are high going in. I’m super confident that what I cooked up will suffice though. This week’s post features a Bassnectar remix that’s been blowing up the internet this week along with tracks and remixes from Weezy, Kids At The Bar, Nicki Minaj, and more. Songs below plus more on the other side. Happy Friday.
The Limousines – Internet Killed The Video Star (Kids At The Bar Remix)
Mark Knight & Wolfgang Gartner – Conscindo (The Kids Are Radioactive Remix)
I’m mad tired so not really interested in typing on for too long (and no one likes reading lots of pointless info anyways). Here’s 6 projects being released between right now and about early March that have me most excited for 2011 in music. Follow me on Twitter.
The Truth’s fifth solo album features production from the likes of 88-Keys, KHRYSIS!, and Ski Beatz. I showcased one of the singles off the album last month on the blog, so the hype has obviously been building for me. For those looking to listen to someone rap about something other than hoes, clothes and shiny cars, I point you in this direction.
BONUS: Full album stream here.
The Bloody Beetroots, Jay-Z, Kanye, Diplo, The Cold War Kids, and Lupe on the other side.Read More
I stumbled upon a pretty cool website a few weeks ago showcasing Pharrell’s digs in Miami. Got me thinking, what the hell is this dude up to? The producer/rapper has been keeping busy, mostly with his rock hop group N*E*R*D. The band’s fourth studio album Nothing was released in November lead by the singles “Hypnotize U” and “Hot N’ Fun”. Pharrell also had the hit track “One” with Swedish House Mafia during the summer and last Fall’s “Bang Bang” with Pusha T and Swizz. With his smooth vocals over typically rhythmical beats, here’s to what is hopefully another solid year from the Virginia native. Downloads after the click.Read More
