Umphrey's McGee Live at Lockn' - Set of the Day - 1/31/14

Photo Credit: Abby Fox

Tonight, the 31st of January 2015, Umphrey's McGee is taking over The Fillmore Detroit, and our we will be present documenting the event. This night marks a historic 10th show for me, and I really cannot fucking wait. There really aren't any other bands that get down and do what UM does for me. Here is just a small taste of what they can do, a live show from Lockn' Festival in Arrington Virginia from this past fall. This 28 minute clip opens up with "Puppet String" and proceeds to sandwich "Higgins" between the track. Twenty-eight minutes of pure ridiculousness. Turn those speakers up and get ready for some rawk! \mm/

Dej Loaf - "We Be On It" - Song of the Day - 1/30/2015

       Detroit native Dej Loaf (Deja Trimble) is a new and fresh face to the rap and hip-hop nation, but she is quickly rising and proving her talent. Her recent single "Try Me" gained the #46 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. "We Be On It" is a track from her mixtape "$ell Sole" that was released in October, and is my personal favorite. Her flow is fresh and natural; it's not too forced, unlike some female rappers', who have been entering the scene recently. She expresses her boss status, creating a name and stature for herself that makes it pretty clear that she doesn't take anyone's shit. 
Fun fact: her stage name Dej Loaf was formed from her first name, Deja, mixed with her longtime love of shoes (Loaf). At the ripe age of 23, I sense her growing popularity and fame will not diminish anytime soon. It is hard to find substantial rappers these days, and I'm quite positive she will continue to prove this as time goes on and her career explodes. If you've heard "Try Me" on the radio, which you probably have,  take a listen to "We Be On It" and her other tracks on Soundcloud and see for yourself that Dej Loaf is no joke.

KillaGraham - "Lifted" - Song of the Day - 1/29/15

Although today we don't hear much from the name, His music lives on. Currently partaking in the duo Milo & Otis, the talented dance artist flourishes more than ever. Being apart of the Skrillex Recess Remix EP as well as joining Sonny on tour marked a huge milestone for the two striving musicians.

Made of the Moon - "This Love is How You Think"

When I first saw this track, the genre listed by the artist was "Electro Acoustic," and I was beyond intrigued. Had to throw it on.... and it was awesome. According to their soundcloud profile "They used to play music, but after a portal opened on Earth Prime they stepped through to create something else and became Made of the Moon. Together they have taken a step into this dimension to create a fusion of the knowns of what they knew of natural instruments and music with the new world and timbres of synthetic technology." Well, this Berkeley based duo is doing something right.

Skrillex feat: Chance the Rapper - "Coast is Clear" - Song of the Day - 1/28/15

Skrillex teamed up with Chance the Rapper for this track from his release, Recess. Honestly the only good song off the effort, it's a shining star in a pule of nonsense. Enjoy this banger for what it is my friends.

Feed Me - "Wuzzle"

Feed Me is set to release a new EP through his label Sotto Voce and here is a little taste. This song is called "Wuzzle" and it mixes a lot of different elements. It has somewhat of a moombahcore flow, and also tribal sounding drums that pound. Feed Me has a way of always coming out with a new blend, but you can hear his brilliant style bleed through it all. The EP will be called A Giant Warrior Descends On Tokyo, and it's sure to be an epic release. You can get it on February 2nd, so don't worry, that's just next week!

Clade Released "Solace" On Indigenous Records!

It seems that Tuesday is becoming a popular release day for most electronic artists these days. Today we were given the uplifting track "Solace from Clade of Indigenous Records. The up and coming artist displays a unique touch on the electronic scene. Pushing out music unthought of by most, the hypnotizing combination subtly grabs ahold of you. This marks his fourth release on Indigenous Records and I already can't wait to hear the fifth. The young musician is currently located in South Carolina, but came from Michigan. Previously being in the band "Tyrants of Deception", The electronic artist and drummer has experience behind him when it comes to writing bad ass music.

The Suicide Machines - "No Face" - Song of the Day - [1-27-15] This is one of the most catchy punk/ska bands ever and a favorite song of mine growing up. The Suicide Machines were a sneaky underground punk rock band, also involving a few horns for a ska feel on some of their tracks. The debut album Destruction By Definition provided the perfect musical soundtrack for skateboarders and snowboarders like myself during the 90's. The band formed in Detroit, Michigan back in 1991 and they would remain for the most part underground with a unique sound. They were a regular at the Vans Warped Tour early on along with bands like NOFX, No Use For A Name, and Bad Religion. Today there is no such thing as a true underground punk-rock band anymore, it has all gone pop, and that is sad. I will never forget how awesome The Suicide Machines were, their music was so fresh and alive, it still holds up strong today. You can stream the full Suicide Machines library on spotify here.

Porter Robinson - 'Say My Name' - Song Of The Day - 1/26/2015

Today's Song Of The Day comes to us from none other then the ever so talented Porter Robinson. I don't know about you but this was the first track I had ever heard from the young producer and it immediately turned me into a fan. While he may not be producing this type of music anymore, hearing this now shows the amazing transformation Porter has taken into his latest album Worlds. Not to mention that this track is already four years old. It shows the pure talent of his production skills and quality at such a young age. 'Say My Name' is a staple Electro House track and in my opinion still one of the best. Sometimes it's good to go back and re-discover our favorite artists. Enjoy!

Eric Clapton - "Cocaine" - Song of the Day - 1/24/15

Originally by JJ Cale, Cocaine was written and recorded in 1976, but didn't really gain popularity until the following year when Eric Clapton released a cover version on his album, Slowhand. A classic as we know it, Clapton did this one justice. Hope y'all are having a good weekend.

A.G. Cook - "Beautiful" - Rustie Edit - Song of the Day - 1/23/2015 [FREE DOWNLOAD]

My man Rustie outdoes himself again with this rework of A.G. Cook's electro beat "Beautiful." Cook's original track is a much more pop and techno-influenced sound, but Rustie never fails to swoop in and create a sound that, in my opinion, is much deeper and more (as the title states) beautiful. He speeds and pitch shifts the vocals and builds up toward a brilliant drop at 1:07, after which he slows down the tempo, creating a trap-like, cloud rap feel that is just too delicious - there is no way you won't find yourself bouncing to this song. 
Rustie released his latest album "Green Language" this past August, and has received wonderful feedback on it as well as other projects he has delved into, especially his awesome collaborations with Danny Brown and AlunaGeorge. Rustie no doubt runs with the big boys, belonging to the UK-based record label Lucky Me, alongside the likes of Hudson Mohawke, Baauer, Cashmere Cat, and S-Type.
He's currently on tour traveling around the UK and near his home parts of Scotland. You can take a listen and download his track for free below. Enjoy!

The music duo known as Gnarls Barkley (CeeLo Green and Danger Mouse) left their imprint in the music industry and continue to today. Although the pair is no longer together, the classical Rnb continues to travel though radio stations worldwide. Being the only single released off of the debut album St. Elsewhere, "Crazy" topped the charts in multiple countries and reached #2 on Billboards hot 100. The talented duo went on to win a Grammy in 2007 for urban performance. The album is still a great jam and will bring you back! Get your copy on iTunes if you haven't already.

Circa Survive - "Holding Someone's Hair Back" - Song of the Day - 1/21/15

Today's song of the day takes us back to our high school days with Circa Survive's "Holding Someone's Hair Back" off their 2005 album, Juturna. interesting enough, Juturna, is the Roman goddess of fountains, wells, and springs. It was taken as a symbol by the band members for a new beginning, and a new beginnig it was.

Virt - "Flowerguy's pool party" - Song of the Day [1/20/15]

Virt is one of the sickest chiptuners ever to manipulate the midi. I pop this music on when I want to jump in a time machine and go back to my Nintendo youth. Tons of Mega Man sounds make this track so enjoyable, plus a perfect mix of melodies. Virt is always good for a full 8-bit symphony, with multiple sections each leading to the next wave of new combinations. This track "Flowerguy's pool party" is just brilliant, you can't help but smile and bob your head to the beat.

Ross Pennock - "A Different Place in Time" - New Album Review [FREE DOWNLOAD]

Artwork By: Rachel Deichert
The Sioux Falls, South Dakota native transplanted in Denver, Colorado, Ross Miller, aka Ross Pennock, just dropped his newest album today, A Different Place in Time. This follow up to his 2014 album, Don't Stand Still, starts off strong with "Falling." Definitely not out of sight, and certainly not out of mind, he sets the stage for killer things to come through the rest of the album. Produced, mixed, and mastered by Dylan West, aka Dylan Jaymes, this album represents a progression of skills and a relentless desire to achieve great things by these two. This skill is ever-present in "Hardly Finished" where production and articulation of a vision come to the forefront. Catchy and powerful with a unique touch of glitchy bass-driven beats, the vocals by Ross are carried along while flawlessly keeping the listener entranced throughout its entirety. "Get Your Own" has an R. Kelly type of vibe to it, without the golden showers. I don't want to ruin the rest of the album for you, so I'm going to let you listen to the remaining songs and draw your own conclusions. Overall, this is great release by a good friend of mine that I only see achieving more and more because of his relentless drive to carve a name for himself in the music world. Cannot wait to see what the future holds for Ross Pennock and Dylan Jaymes. Available for free download through the Mile High Sound Movement bandcamp: HERE.

Meghan Trainor - "All About That Bass" (Charlie Darker Remix) - Song Of The Day - 1/19/2015

Happy Monday to all and thank god for this three day weekend right? Today's song of the day comes to us from one of the most underrated producers in my opinion, Charlie Darker. The Canadian producer has quite a wide range of diversity but this was the first I've heard him dive into future/deep house. And this track is a perfect starter song to get you and all of your friends to ride this new wave of house music coming out. Low vocals and the lingering synth(reminds me of MUST DIE! - 'Hellcat') in the background give this song the perfect vibe when it starts. As the track rises before the drop you can begin to hear the "hollow pipe" sound build which indicates where this track is heading. When the drop hits, the first thing I noticed was how well the drums worked together with that "hollow pipe" sound. The only thing you have to do now is boogie down to the groovy music blasting from your speakers. Enjoy!

Grateful Dead to Reunite in Chicago for 50th Anniversary Shows Independence Day Weekend!


"To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, and Bob Weir will reunite at Chicago’s Soldier Field, nearly 20 years to the day of the last-ever Grateful Dead concert, which took place at the same venue. “Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead” will take place over three nights – July 3rd, 4th, and 5th, 2015 – and mark the original members’ last-ever performance together. The band will be joined by Trey Anastasio (Guitar), Jeff Chimenti (Keyboards) and Bruce Hornsby (Piano), and will perform two sets of music each night.

In the tradition of the original Grateful Dead Ticketing Service, tickets will be available via a first come first serve mail order system starting on January 20th, followed by an online pre-sale through Dead Online Ticketing February 12th and will be available online to the general public on February 14th via Ticketmaster."

Oisima - Everything About Her (Ta-ku Remix) - Song of the Day - 1/16/2014

This song doe! Ta-ku flips the switch on the original "Everything About Her" produced by Oisima, with lyrics by Anabel Weston, and creates a whole new beat entirely which plays off the song's initial beauty and proceeds to skyrocket into a seriously huge and original tune. Ta-ku achieves this with not only chopping and screwing the vocals and adding a fluid mixture of bells and drums to enhance the sound throughout, but he also surprises us completely at 1:30 with a brilliant drop that includes insane high-pitched violin samples that drive the song into a reggae inspired feel on top of its beautiful and melodic foundation. It seems as though Australia really knows what's up these days, especially since the Future Classic Label originated there - a label managed by Ta-ku and many other swiftly rising producers such as Flume and Touch Sensitive. Even Oisima, the producer of the original track, conceives his lovely songs whilst residing Down Undah. Regardless, this song is the soundtrack to the pregame, the party, the afterparty, the drunken sex and/or drunken munchies that transpire on these beautiful Friday nights. Enjoy!

Jon Bellion - "Luxury" - Song of the Day - 1/15/15

Today we relax and vibe out in the dreams of "Luxury". This animated video brings us on almost a short story journey through the ideas of Jon Bellion. Touching on a unique base, the mellow track draws attention with its uplifting chords. Singing as well as rapping over the beat, Jon gives it a dynamic difference that makes everything pop that much more. The anticipated trumpet lies perfectly over the ambient synths, digging a smile out of you every time. Check out more from Jon Bellion on his website!

Slipknot - "Vermillion Pt. 2" - Song of the Day - 1/14/15

"Vermillion Pt. 2" is a continuation of Vermillion from their album Vol. 3 (The Subliminal Verses). One of my favorite albums of theirs. The differences between the two tracks are subtle. "Vermillion" is about the enrapturing, the buildup, the anticipation, and the neurosis, according to Corey Taylor, lead singer of Slipknot. While part 2 is about the aftermath, the pieces that have to be picked up later, and maybe the guilt of having lived through it. Over all, an intensely powerful track and music video.

3LAU - "Bang" (Tiesto Bootleg) - Song Of The Day (1-12-15)

This song of the day comes almost as two songs! What we have is a bootleg created by Tiesto for 3lau's hit track "We Came To Bang". The only difference is that the vocals aren't from the original. They're instead from a song that some might know by the Bloodhound Gang, "The Bad Touch". Overall the track is has an electro, pounding you in your face feel. It's cool to see big names like Tiesto still doing some fun stuff that people can get a kick out of. The first time I heard this I couldn't believe Tiesto was apart of it. None the less it's a great fun track to get the party started, even on a Monday. Enjoy!

Huglife - Unthugged Mixtape - Released January 3, 2015

Huglife, formerly known as DJ Slink, has not had an easy month by any means. All I want to do, of course, is hug him. For reasons not fully stated, Huglife's soundcloud was shut down without notice, and he lost over 34K followers! Which producers know is pivotal for popularity growth, booking shows, and connecting and sharing music with fans. However, he still made a point to release his much anticipated "Unthugged" mixtape to his anxiously awaiting fans. Despite having his former soundcloud page shut down, he has now created a new Huglife Soundcloud in order to release this mixtape. Over a week after the initial release date due to the deletion of his account. 

"Unthugged," of course, is nothing less than spectacular and well worth waiting for. His introduction, as always, is epic, and the rest follows suit, exhibiting all forms and genres of music with fluid transitions and hard-hitting emotional selections. He continues to perfectly mix the hood side of trap with the sexual and passionate side of cloud rap. And, as always, is the foolproof face of Jersey club music, even though this particular mixtape depicts his more aesthetic, sensitive side. It is quite perfect for an hour of intense love-making, but in all honestly, all I want to do is make love to my speakers. 

Huglife has been such an influential artist and never fails to create dazzling sounds. He was the last person to have to deal with this unfortunate setback. However, he still remains positive and grateful for his fans, because his fans sure are grateful for him. To help support Huglife, you can follow his other accounts while he continues to build his new soundcloud: 

Here is a "tour guide" to the "Unthugged" mixtape Huglife posted on his new Soundcloud account: (A more detailed track list should be coming soon.)

Entroducing // Slow Ride Fineshrine // Midnight Trippin // Paradise Circus Hoodfigga // Throw Some D’s Faded // Love U So Rebound // Weigh me down Pretty With her eyes low Precinct // Truth Two weeks // Habits Stay Fly Les artist // Wicked flowers Are you that somebody Rain Jacket // Reconsider Ridin Solo // Tessellate Fall in love // Still Here Often // Nolita Angels // So fresh so clean Drop the game // Retrograde Fragile

100s - "Ten Freaky Hoes" - Song Of The Day - 1/9/2015

Who doesn't enjoy the company of ten freaky hoes? 100s is definitely no exception, releasing this ballad about the likes of Michelle, Portia, Donna, and Mia (that bitch tried to steal his conditioner.) His beautiful ice cold perm is only one of the many wonderful things about this California-born rapper who signed with Fools Gold Records in June 2013. Since then, his music has advanced into a much groovier, g-funk based production, this particular single a perfect depiction of such, making you feel like you're bouncing down the streets of Brooklyn in the 80s. This rapper is only going to continue to grow, along with his stick straight luscious locks; his single "Life of a Mack" was featured in the soundtrack of Grand Theft Auto V. He went on tour with Kreayshawn and performed five shows at SXSW in 2013. A free EP titled Ivry is said to be released this upcoming year. Take a listen below and immerse yourself in the life of this self-proclaimed third-world mack.

PYLOT - "After Dark"

This is a red hot funk jam from PYLOT a completely new artist on Monstercat. His story isn't a rehashing of some played out cliche, but in fact a mental scavenger hunt to regain his identity. The artist known as PYLOT is a mystery, and an intriguing narrative is about to unfold through musical productions and journal entries. PYLOT is only how he recognizes himself now after having entirely lost all of his memories as a result of an incident. It is going to be fascinating to follow this unknown man as he attempts to put his puzzle back together. Read journal entries on the Official PYLOT Facebook for more clues about who he might be. And peep the Official PYLOT Soundcloud for more music that may lead to more information about who PYLOT really is.

Mr. CAR/\\ACK - "I'm in Love With, Coco"

We've all heard the O.T. Genasis original playing over and over at pregames, the club, and the radio for the past few months. Mr. Carmack recently teamed up with Teeko and J.P.S. to produce their rendition of the popular tune. Can't say this was expected, but out of all the remixes out there, this is certainly one of the most unique versions. Mr. Carmack posted on his Twitter account about the remix saying, "Man... I just made a coco remix because i couldn't get it out of my head. Please enjoy it even more". Give it a listen below.

Last Wednesday night Trill Clinton and Cameron Oakley rang in the New Year with a bang! Their dynamic back to back techniques set the bar high for any supporting act. Blasting some of the best music in the genre, they continuously keep you going.

  "NYE at The Bluestone was massive for us, we definitely couldn't have asked for a better way to end the year.

Be on the lookout for some new music that we'll be releasing very soon. 2014 was amazing for our music careers & I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store!" - Cameron Oakley

1. With 2014 behind us, Would you say 2015 is going to be "your year"?

Kaster - "Rage Quit" - Song of the Day - [1/6/15]

Kaster goes hard with this electro track "Rage Quit" from his album Extended Play. He's had this song in his pocket for a little while now, it was originally posted to soundcloud a couple years ago and it became a part of his debut album. "Rage Quit" and a bunch of other songs also available for free download just by liking the Official Kaster Facebook page. This was the opening song to a his set at The Works in Detroit back in April of 2013, the one time I got to see him live. Kaster is really talented at a number of different electronic sub-genres, and he is one of the elite electronic music producers signed with the label Section Z. Definitely keep an eye on this guy, he is getting better with every new release.

Sum 41 - 'In Too Deep' (Kasum Remix) - Song Of The Day (1/5/15)

Today's song of the day comes with a side order of Nostalgia for all my 90's kids, well probably for most people reading this. One of the most well known Sum 41 songs got a great face lift from New York producer, Kasum. This remix brings all the feels of an awesome progressive house track, especially the infectious piano playing over the vocals. This song has a very natural flowing feel to it almost as if this was an original. Minimal editing to the vocals add to that feeling as well. Another great thing about this remix is likability. Playing this at any party(whether DJing or using your aux chord magic) will surely bring together a singalong that everyone can be apart of. Best part, its FREE! Make sure you follow Kasum for more great remixes and some new originals in the near future.

GRiZ - "My Vision of Happiness" - Song of the Day (1/4/14)

One listen of this throwback GRiZ song will only make you appreciate the artist he has become today even more. This song goes into the category of Grants old tunes that came out around the time that his first studio album titled "End of the World Party" did in June of 2011. This song has a whole lot of funk with that electro-soul feel on it as one might expect from GRiZ. He's definitely come a long way since this track but it certainly has his recognizable and trademark sound as you might expect. With a new album coming in the spring of this year, we're patiently waiting new content from GRiZ and can't wait till it drops.
