The Roots of the Rave

I had to blog this video. I really enjoy Chase & Status music videos. UK based, their shit's not bad. Falls under my stilo.

We all know that the U.S. was last to catch on to the rave scene. As much as we don't like to admit, our ideas are just borrowed, our trends are not unique. We follow a much more diverse, bangin culture. This ofcourse, is my opinion, but I give big ups to the UK and Europe for creating such an amazing underground culture. Ofcourse, leave it to us, the US to blow it up and overdo it. Chase & Status have a new album coming out in January, and their single 'Blind Faith' is already making boomtastic waves.

The music video to this is great. It's oldschool stilo-and brings back the idea of underground warehouse raves. Enjoy it. And a few more from Chase & Status. Big on drumnbass, expect big from them in 2011.

Rag Doll

Happy Friday everyone! I'm at it again with the relaxed dub. It's been one of those weeks with the cold and snow and holiday season, I enjoy finner tunes such as this one.

Artist Enigma is celebrating 4 years of Bigger than Barry and have released a number of EP tracks including remixes you'll want :) If you want the free goodies, check em out here. Gotta say outta of all of them, this tune is just my stilo. Vocals are great and beat if very relaxed.

Drift Deeper into the Sound

I finally have found a remix of this song-I'll admit I have been known to love good trance, and when it's remixed well with dubstep, damn makes your heart go twice as fast. Motorcycle on the original, the words repeated, 'embrace me, surround me, as the rush comes,' never fail to bring goosebumps.

The last two songs have been more mellowed out, but I post what I enjoy, and that isn't always hard, or grime, or up-beat. The beat has beauty in it, and I find it relaxing. High-Rankin on the remix, check out his soundcloud for more beats.

Motorcycle - As The Rush Comes (High Rankin Remix) by High Rankin

For those of you who are in DC today, you should check out UStreet Music Hall tonight. Not the biggest fan of Steeze Promo, whose hosting, but HUGE fan of Emalkay. First heard live at Fall Massive last year, I was all about, 'When I Look At You,' ofcourse this is before he got blown up. Still, when you like an artist for their music, you will continue to no matter what. Take a look at his MySpace and Facebook as well as the Event Page for details about tonight. And for more tunez, check out his YouTube. The show is $10.

When I Look At You is PURE Emalkay CLASSIC. Take a listen.

A Taste of Beauty

No matter where you are right now, it's probably at least below freezing. Not to add to your goose bumps but this song really gets em going. I was introduced to the song by the guy that got me into this whole scene. Heard it a while back, and fell in love. Never got a chance to blog so here I am, blogging one beautiful song and its' remix on a FREEZING, somewhat snowy December day.

Here is the original, featuring Soundmouse, actually I quite like the music video, very Eruotastic.


The Remix of Afterglow is done by Japanese artist Akira Kiteshi. More upbeat but still able to maintain the beauty.

0bscure Yourself

As I posted two banging songs that were recommended to me by DJ 0bscure, I forgot to add some of his own mixes.

Just downloaded his May mix, Here We Go-shit is fire! Upbeat, I listened to it on the way into my office, it definitely gets you moving. And there are a few favorites in there, some wicked drops, and my personal favorite, Dada Lifes' 'Kites.' Let the mix blow you away and show a good DJ some lovin <3

I Don't Smoke Da Reefer

Thirsty Thursday, YES. Got two bangin songs sent to me yesterday, curtisoy of DJ 0bsure. If you havn't heard any of Marcus' stuff, you really should. He plays some mean progressive trance, house and electro.

For anyone that's heard and like Shiny Toy Guns, you'll enjoy this. Classixx on the remix, it has this poppy, sexy, electro feel to it. Easy to get hooked on this song, your head starts bouncing at the 2:05 mark.
I know many of you HAVE to know this song-especially if you smoke da reefer. It's Deeklines' I don't smoke the reefer, the Twockers Re-Rub remix. Starts off in this almost 'sunshine happy' feel then drops a bassline that makes you want to get lower. And if you have reefer, you're gonna want it for this song.
