“Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director,” Lamar said via a press release.

“The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture. I’m truly honored to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside [director Ryan Coogler] and Marvel’s vision.”  Along with the announcement, the first single from the album has also debuted.

Sony’s New ‘Magnificent Seven’ Trailer.


The Magnificent Seven is a remake that some people don’t want, however, getting a better look at this second trailer makes all of our writers think folks should wait before making judgment.

Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ and Columbia Pictures’ The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.

Batman v Superman May Not Have Been The Movie We Needed, But It Had The Soundtrack We Deserved.


Composer Tom Holkenborg (better known as Junkie XL) teamed up with the legendary Hans Zimmer to create the score on the extremely controversial ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’, and it was a work of art.  Regardless of what the (very divided) public thinks of the film, its soundtrack is something to be held in high regard.  From the guitar shredding theme of Wonder Woman, to deep piano and horns of Lex Luthor’s theme, this film shines from a sonic standpoint.  Superman’s theme from the ‘Man Of Steel’ film makes a resurgence, and Ben Afflecks’ Batman receives a new and ominous sound.  Check out the entire, official soundtrack below.


First Look At Will Smith In The Independence Day Sequel.


Well, there it is.  Your first look.  For those who don’t know, Will Smith’s Col. Hiller won’t be returning for the sequel to 1996’s ‘Independence Day’.  Rumor has it that two different scripts were penned, one if Smith returned, and one if he chose not to, so we can obviously see which one they chose.  The official “report” from the viral site The War Of 1996 – United We Stand, reads as below.

While test piloting the ESD’s first alien hybrid fighter, an unknown malfunction causes the untimely death of Col. Hiller. Hiller’s valor in the War of 96 made him a beloved global icon whose selfless assault against the alien mothership lead directly to the enemy’s defeat. He is survived by his wife Jasmine and son Dylan.


Aside from seeing Will Smith explode, we also got an amazing first look at the rest of the film.  Check out the first official trailer for “Independence Day: Resurgence”

The Most Tagged Song Of The 2012 Olympics.

When current events, movies, tv shows breathe new life into an old song it re-introduce it to the masses and allows us as DJs to work a forgotten song back into our sets.

Check out the list below of the top 20 songs from the broadcast.  In the U.S., “Bonkers” shot up from almost nothing to nearly 2,000 units last week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Sales of Oldfield’s “Tubular Bells” rose 890%.

The Olympics has been good for other songs, too.  Jones says Phillip Phillips’ “Home” has shot up Shazam’s charts because of use in daytime and primetime broadcasts. The song has also risen to No. 1 on the iTunes list of top tracks in the United States. Check the rest of the list after the jump.

The Project X PartyCast 2.

The most epic party movie in recent memory has cashed in over $26,971,731 at the theaters as of this morning.  For those of you who have seen the movie, are probably aware of the impressive soundtrack that plays throughout the film, and it was that same soundtrack that inspired the Project X PartyCasts.  DJ Jeff Phantom and I have been getting together since before the films release to put together and hour or so of some of the newest potential party songs on the market.  The second release dropped 2 days ago on SoundCloud, but incase it was too hard to find, we figured we would put up on this blog for the world to see.  Both the first and the second pod casts feature Hip Hop, Electro, Moombahthon, House, and a slew of different artists putting out music for the masses.  Take a listen to either the first (below) or the second (above) by just clicking play.

New Music: Busta Rhymes, Tyga, 50 Cent, Drake & The Cataracs.

Busta Rhymes – N*ggas In Paris (Unofficial Remix)

Click the pic to listen.

I’m a firm believer in the truth that some beats are just made for certain rappers.  Jay-Z and Kanye West destroyed the beat for their newest single “N*ggas In Paris”, and no one can say their approach to the song was anything less than stellar.  However, it never occurred to me what a monster like Busta Rhymes could sound like over a beat that seems to have been designed for his flow.  Click the pic above to take a listen.


Tyga ft. Drake – Still Got It

Click the pic to listen.

Being label-mates, it only makes sense that Tyga and Drizzy-Drake would come together for a single eventually.  But I was thoroughly surprised by the quality of the record they were able to produce.  I can’t wait to hear ‘Still Got It’ playing over the airwaves soon. Click the pic above to take a gander.


50 Cent ft. The Cataracs – The Enforcer

Click the pic to listen.

Unexpected collaborations are nothing new to Fif, especially after tracks with Justin Timberlake, and Michael Jackson.  But his newest step outside of the box is with The Cataracs for the “Real Steel” movie soundtrack.  A nicely paced, memorable electro beat wouldn’t be the first thing you’d expect to hear 50 Cent on, but it works quite well.  Click the pic above to listen.

The Anotomy Of A Mashup.

Mashups are all over the place, they come and go, and are part of the music entertainment world. But few people outside of the select few know what it takes to compile a solid mashup. Fortunately I was told that one of the incredible Daft Punk mashups I’ve acquired recently from Cameron Adams, came with a chart of all the songs it was blended with, and a real time map of the mixing. Click the pic below (or above) to see this intricate and interesting look about the making of a mashup.

Furiously Dangerous.

Click the pic to listen.

The ‘movie soundtrack’ single is something that producers inject into the public to boost awareness of an upcoming film.  Most of the time it doesn’t really work, or falls short of a track the general public respects as anything more than a publicity stunt.  The song “Furiously Dangerous” however is a totally different ball game.  Mr. Porter laced an energy packed beat that Ludacris, the entire Slaughterhouse team and Claret Jai totally demolish.  Click the pic to listen to the first single off the “Fast Five” soundtrack.

Daft Tron

Just as any self-respecting nerd has been doing over the last few days, I too have been trying to dig up as much info as possible about the new ‘Tron Legacy’. Disney’s sequel is set to release Dec. 17th 2010, but even in all its young-Jeff Bridges, and ‘Kid-that-got-shot-up-in-4-Brothers‘ (Garrett Hedlund), disk dodging, light-cycling glory, what I’m the most anxious for is the soundtrack. Produced entirely of brand spanking new Daft Punk tracks, (one of which can be heard in the second half of the new trailer available on The soundtrack will bring an audience of music lovers in for the film that may not have been enticed otherwise. Not to mention the duo will actually be appearing IN the movie. (Kudos)
