Bomba Estéreo & Will Smith – Fiesta (Official Remix Video).

Will Smith recently dropped his first verse in a decade on a remix of Bomba Estereo’s “Fiesta,” and now the actor-returned-rapper is ending his similarly lengthy video drought by appearing in the group’s clip. The new “Fiesta” video takes place at the tail end of a neon-coated warehouse party, with the arrival of a cloaked figure – Smith dressed like it’s an I Am Legend sequel – reigniting the festivities.  In a making-of video for the “Fiesta” remix, Smith again breaks down why he decided to end his hip-hop hiatus by jumping on the Bomba Estereo track. “I was in Colombia with Marc Anthony. He was listening to music and I heard the ‘Fuego, fuego’ and I was like, ‘Yo, that joint is crazy,'” Smith said of hearing the Colombian band for the first time. Smith’s manager happened to be friends with people at Bomba Estereo’s record label, who then provided the actor with the “Fiesta” single. “I said, ‘That is crazy, I need to be on that.'”

Word is also that it’s about to be a legit “Fiesta” at this year’s Latin Grammys. People en Español reports that Will Smith will be joining his new Latin BFFs Bomba Estéreo for a performance of their recent collaboration, which can only be described as an epic carnival with a few bilingual, Big Willie-style verses sprinkled on top as confetti.  “It’s truly an honor for me to perform at the Latin Grammys,” Smith told the magazine. “To be surrounded with so many artists who have made such an impact globally is really exciting to me.”

‘When Will The Bass Drop?’ Live.

E.A.S.Y. is the new collaboration between DC Area’s Enferno and NYC’s Shiftee. Both former DMC Champions and artists in their own right, Enferno and Shiftee have come together as E.A.S.Y. to start a paradigm shift in the way we think about DJs and live performance.  In their #LiveRemix parody of Andy Samberg’s SNL skit “WHEN WILL THE BASS DROP,” E.A.S.Y. pokes fun at the current “press play” DJ culture before busting out a new original track “Fly Away.” The video showcases their next level turntablism skills and musicianship, but also highlights their stylistic direction and future bass wig wearing ability.

Deutschland has become the country of the World Cup Winners, but soccer wasn’t the only excitement in Rio during the tournament.  Diplo and Major Lazer had quite an electric performance on the rooftop of the Budweiser Hotel in Rio de Janeiro.  Check out the video below.

Steve Aoki, Chris Lake & Tujamo – Boneless (ENFERNO Live Remix).


0903_arts_enfernoThe art of DJ’ing has been undoubtedly convoluted with actors, and pretenders who just pre-mix sets, and dance around on stage.  It’s a trend I feel like will only get worse before it gets better.  There are of course turntable warriors like DJ Enferno who not only do everything live, but are more than happy to demonstrate their skills.  Check out Enferno’s amazing live remix of ‘Boneless’ from Steve Aoki, Chris Lake, & Tujamo.

CNN covers a mini documentary on Clipse, the renowned Virginia Beach hip-hop duo comprising real-life brothers Pusha T and No Malice. Despite a small glimmer of hope earlier this year, the future of Clipse has become increasingly uncertain, as No Malice has repeatedly expressed a disinterest in any further collaborations with his brother. CNN reporter Bill Weir offers a in-depth look into the brother’s current relationship and differing ideologies (No Malice recently became a born-again Christian). In fact, not once during the entire segment do the two brothers appear on camera together.
