*Event Review* Santa Cruz Music Festival Pre-Party | Santa Cruz | Oct. 10 – 11

The Santa Cruz Music Festival Pre-Party was the biggest electronic music party that the area had seen in a while; Raindance, Northern Nights Music Festival, Euphoric.Net, Santa Cruz Waves, and Good Times Santa Cruz were partners in the event and the amazing collaboration definitely showed. Friday night was the first night which I personally referred...

*Event Review* Foreverland | Sept. 19 – 21 | 2014

*Event Review* Foreverland | Sept. 19 – 21 | 2014

(Photo from Foreverland Facebook page) Days in Foreverland were filled with champagne and cold beers, wading in the lake, daytime naps in 90 degree weather, and an array of playful pirates and fancy fairies. Prehistoric-looking dragonflies zipped through the air all day, and fireflies danced with the lights and lasers at night. Foreverland may have...
*New Remix* Fergie - London Bridge (DSIGNR Bootleg)

*New Remix* Fergie – London Bridge (DSIGNR Bootleg)

Aww yeahhh. We’ve already reposted on our Soundcloud page, but this one was worth an extra mention. Frankly quite overlooked lately, some of Fergie’s tunes were killers back in the day, and this one is just proof of that. DSIGNR takes London Bridge and turns it into a massive trap banger. Perfect use of the vocal clips...
*New Remix* Pablo Nouvelle - Poison (Grensta Remix)

*New Remix* Pablo Nouvelle – Poison (Grensta Remix)

Starting out with just some thumping kicks, then bringing in some smooth vocals and a groovy deep house synth, Grensta instantly revitalizes this track from Pablo Nouvelle in his remix of Poison. Perfect use of the vocal tracks, followed by fantastic insertion of that heavy bass we’re used to with Grensta, and a deep vibe we...
*New Remix* Ginuwine - Pony (Porno Allen Remix)

*New Remix* Ginuwine – Pony (Porno Allen Remix)

Leaving the lyrics intact, Porno Allen takes the R&B sexy classic tune Pony by Ginuwine and turns it into a filthy dubstep remix. Bringing in sick and grimy wobble synths, a cool vocal melody used as the build, and even a piano riff during the bridge, Porno Allen totally revitalizes this track and makes it dance floor...

*Event Review* Northern Nights Music Festival | July 18 – 20 | 2014

As I headed up North for my first year at Northern Nights Music Festival, I saw a beautiful rainbow that swept across the sky. It was then I should have known that the weekend was going to be an amazing one. Nothing is better for the soul than camping with a bunch of your friends...
*New Remix* Quadron - Favorite Star (Two Fresh Remix)

*New Remix* Quadron – Favorite Star (Two Fresh Remix)

Starting out with a jazzy little piano riff, very sexy vocals, a funky hip hop break beat, and that future purp theme to tie it all together, this remix of Quadron’s Favorite Star by Two Fresh gives you the perfect blend of 90’s throwback feels and hip shaking grooviness. This is a new style for Two Fresh,...

*Event Review* Lil Jon |Maya| Scottsdale, Arizona

*Event Review* Lil Jon |Maya| Scottsdale, Arizona

The King of Crunk is dead. Long live the prince of Turn Up. He didn’t say “get crunk”  at all. NOT EVEN ONCE. Part of the reason I went was to hear the collection of catch phrases that made him the voice of the party for the better part of a decade now. Alas, he has...
*New Remix* Destroid - Raise Your Fist (ill.GATES 110 Remix)

*New Remix* Destroid – Raise Your Fist (ill.GATES 110 Remix)

Woooo. What a doozie we have here. ill.Gates has just remixed the live bass production trio, Destroid, on their latest track Raise Your Fist. With a little moombah vibe, ill.Gates slows down the original to play with the synths, make the bass a little bouncier, accentuate the guitar solo, and overall give this the ill.Gates treatment....
