This Is… (Insert Your Country Here).


Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) flabbergasted the country when he randomly released his incredible video for “This Is America”.  The symbolism, reflections of the current state of the U.S., and the over all tone of the music video is undeniably well thought out, original, and has resonated to not just Americans.  Several artists from all around the world have stepped up to represent the problems in the places that they live.  NOW, not to downplay the plights of other nations, but the similar styles, which are directly bitten from Gambino seem a bit unoriginal, and although the messages are clear, insightful, and informative, after a bit, one would hope that these artists would have found their own way to convey their thoughts. That being said, these “remixes” of ‘This Is America’ are extremely worth taking a listen to.  Between I-NZ bringing light to the state of Iraq post Americas 2003 invasion, or Falz discussing the conditions of current day Nigera, you can search for almost any country you want, you’ll find one of these videos.  Check the method below, listen to the messages.

The Return Of Missy Elliot… WTF.


1141309-Missy-Elliott-617x409

Missy Elliott is the comeback queen. Her last album, The Cookbook, came out way back in 2005, but since that time she’s popped up here and there, and in each instance she’s been met with the same level of exuberant enthusiasm. Most recently, she made an appearance at Katy Perry’s Super Bowl halftime show , which stirred up the Missy Elliott fever and got everyone extra hungry for new stuff from her. Elliott has dropped hints that she’s been working with Timbaland on her seventh studio album, but no word has been given as to when it’ll be out. Thankfully, we’ve got this brand new video for “WTF (Where They From)” to hold us over. The video features Pharrell Williams and will get your weird shoulders popping for sure.

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


proyectop_file_0830440d97e5942517f5f9be3db08d91_9894_

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.”

Drake- ‘Charged Up’


drake-cover-990

Earlier this week, the rapper Meek Mill unleashed a series of tweets that sought to expose the much more famous rapper Drake as a fraud. The two had recently collaborated on the Meek Mill single “R.I.C.O.,” and Meek seemed a bit salty that Drake hadn’t promoted the tune on his social media or whatever his reason was, so he accused him of using a ghostwriter on the tune and faking his raps. Drake stayed relatively quiet about it until he released his response ‘Charged Up’ today. Check it out below!

The New Mission Impossible Brings New Meaning To The Term ‘On A Plane’.


Mission-Impossible-Rogue-Nation-poster

In a world where movies consistently go over the top with stunts, and CG flipping cars, and visual effects gorillas, its nice to see film makers returning to practical action shots (Meaning everything on film was actually filmed, and not just faked by amazing visual effects artists).  The next installment of the Mission Impossible franchise, looks to deliver a stunt more mind blowing than Tom Cruise hanging outside of the the largest building in the world (which was also real), being Top Cruise hanging off of a military aircraft as it takes flight.  Not kidding, there are multiple photos of it being shot.  mission-image-1-11-3

Aside from this pretty awesome cherry on top of a great trailer, is the Lauren Hill, ‘Ready or Not’ remix that plays in the background.  The song meshes perfectly with the dark and ominous tone of the 5th franchise film that depicts the IMF team against their more dangerous advisories yet.  Check the method below, and I’m curious to see what people think of that plane scene.

San Francisco is home to many unique dining experiences and cafes that can be found nowhere else.  Sugar Cafe, in SF’s bustling downtown is a favorite among students, tourists, and city dwellers alike.  The unique ambiance provides a great working environment, and the menu can keep a person there all day for breakfast, lunch, and evening drinks.  The music at Sugar is also something that struck us, memorable, but relaxing, the impeccable selection is great listening, even if it serves as background music.  DJ Storm felt the need create a mix that payed homage to the cafe that has hosted some of his interviews, small events, friendly gatherings, and leisurely work space for the last 10 years.  Although the mix itself hasn’t been heard through the speakers in Sugar as of yet, it’s being played by DJ’s as far away as the North Pacific.  (The photo below is from DJ Jeff Phantom of Hawaii).  Click either of the pics to download the first half of this hour long relaxation mix.

User Review: Neon Dreams – By Victoria Fisher.


NeonDreamsFINAL

As we are reaching the mid way point of 2014, electronic dance music (better known as EDM) has progressively taken over the music industry. With concerts and festivals that fill the summer, no matter what coast you live on you are more than likely pumping your fist or nodding your head to some awesome beat drop.

edc2

More well known DJs are now more often making longer songs that can last as long as over an hour straight; these are known as sets. The ability to keep somebody’s attention for more than the duration of a regular song (3-5 minutes) can be pretty difficult; especially if your music is not carrying a focus on the lyrical context. EDM is all about how the music makes you feel; the journey that it takes you and your mind on when listen to it. The Neon Dreams Compilation track by DJ Storm & Jeff Phantom (with a total duration of 1 hour 13 minutes and 30 seconds) does just that- takes you on an amazing musical journey.

When I was first shown the track, I thought “Omg an hour?  Okay  well I’m already in for the night, I’ll just put it in on and let it rock.” And I did just that… best decision ever! The music is both soothing and energizing; the lyrics are not heavy in context but they provide just the right amount of coupling next to the beats that change consistently and smoothly. The next thing I thought about was how much I wanted to download it and go in at the gym to it! EDM music always helps me run like Forrest when I get on the treadmill and I knew that Neon Dreams was a perfect fit.

As the song progresses, I became more entranced and excited to see what was coming next. Every song perfectly transitioned into the next, which is something that not every DJ is able to do. Transitions can really make or break a compilation and DJ Storm & Jeff Phantom straight up nailed it. Perhaps one of my favorite qualities of this song is that I want to listen to it at all hours of the day or night. Whether I am heading out to the club with my friends or just starting my work day at 8am, I cannot stop listening to this track. The music of it has become infectious in all the best ways possible. With dope beats and lyrics that partner it perfectly; Neon Dreams has easily become one of my favorite EDM compilations that I have ever heard. If it is any hint of how much I enjoy it; in the past week I have listened to the song in its entirety probably close to 6 or 7 times. That is not including the times that I started the song but was not able to finish it because I had to do other things (like work-LAME).

StormandPhantom copy

 

DJ Storm & Jeff Phantom have made a pretty dope premiere of their musical abilities meeting. Neon Dreams is universally musically intriguing. As I write this at 9am I am definitely listening to it, beats bumping and fist pumping. Give the track a listen and be sure to let us know what you think!

 

Steve Aoki’s Newest Batch Of Hot.


steve-aoki-x-neff-2013-capsule-collection-0

The crown prince of Dim Mak, Steve Aoki is back at it again.  With releases left, right and center from the DJ master, we had to focus on two of our favorite.  Free The Madness features Machine Gun Kelly, and takes place both in the future, and in the past.  This video is quite cleverly based off AMC’s monster hit show ‘Breaking Bad’.  Check the method below.

The second of our two newest Aoki video release is ‘Freaks’ featuring Diplo and Deorro.  If you saw ’22 Jump Street’ since its release, you may recognize this one from the Spring Break scene (where Diplo himself made a cameo appearance)  Videos now a days are chocked full of wild concepts, and crazy gags, but the simplistic style of ‘Freaks’ is quite refreshing.   Some seemingly explicit insinuations are made in the video, but wait till the end.  Check the method below.
