‘Looking for the Perfect Beat’ is a cinéma vérité immersion inside the unique Los Angeles “beat scene” music community, centered around the world famous Low End Theory club night. Filmed over the Summer of 2013, we are given the opportunity to elegantly lift the veil on the personal creative processes of the internationally-acclaimed pillars of the scene. Indie music luminaries such as Thundercat, the Gaslamp Killer, TOKiMONSTA, Jonwayne, Baths, Daedelus, Ras G, Teebs, D-Styles, edIT of the Glitch Mob, Astronautica, Free the Robots, and Matthewdavid are all featured in vivid detail. The soundtrack for the film creates itself live on camera as the film elapses. This avant-garde visual angle on each subject in their respective creative spaces provides for an introspective glimpse into what would otherwise be unseen.

Told as a 24-hour tour throughout the city, the fly-on-the-wall perspective of ‘Looking for the Perfect Beat’ archives each artist’s studio at this moment in history, revealing something not only universally humanizing about the scene’s stars, but also telling of the diverse community in which this group of inter-related artists interact. Directed by seasoned music documentarian Matthew F. Smith, and produced by Low End Theory club founder Daddy Kev, ‘Looking for the Perfect Beat’ provides a holistic view of L.A.’s key players in this generation’s electronic music landscape while instilling hope for the future of cross-cultural creative unions.

Jason Derulo has been along waves in music much longer than people give him credit for. It’s only with the undoubtable success of his last 3 singles that he’s started to become a household name. Check out the official video for his next chart topper “Wiggle” featuring Snoop Dogg.

Audio Push – Shine

Audio Push has a forthcoming project on the way, which is entitled ‘Come as You Are’. If all of its tracks come as correct as Shine, then listeners are in for a treat. The HS87 duo, made up of Pricetag and Oktane, displays a style that is more fluid than shiny, but works all the same. Hazebanga and Eric Choicehandle production duties, accenting their glossy, melodic arrangement with a few stretched Janet Jackson vocal samples. Atop the beat, Audio Push showcase laid-back, yet quirky flows with just a touch of twang. Be sure to keep Shine on your playlist as a reminder that ‘Come As You Are’ is due out this fall.

The Araab Muzik Show.


Weather it’s live, on video, or in any other medium, someone playing the MPC live is always amazing to me, the same way it is for anyone to watch any artist produce live music.  The M.V.P. of the MPC, Mr. Araab Muzik, is a world class musician that has transcended the label of a simple “beat maker”.  Luckily for his fans, he’s on tour, all over the U.S. and has recently put out a docu-video proving his dopeness to those who remain unfamiliar.  But if you’re already up on your Araab music, keep looking at the top of the screen for the tour dates streaming by.
