*Event Review* Symbiosis Gathering | September 19 – 23 | 2013

Symbiosis was one of Northern California’s last festivals of the summer, and it did nothing less than blow my mind and leave me with goosebumps. I had spent months keeping up with event updates: what workshops were being offered, which artists were scheduled, and what kind of delicious food I...

*Event Review* Keys N Krates | Every Nite Tour | gLAdiator | Thugli | House of Blues | San Diego

It’s been a while since I’ve been to all trap show, but this one I had to attend to see the live act Keys N Krates. I’ve seen another group, STS9, do live trap before, but just for a track, so I was stoked to see what an entire set would sound like. Plus, I...

*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.

Perfect use of the vocal clips...
