RUINING AN ART LIKE MUSIC

December 3, 2012

The last few years, the music industry has been sending horrible song after horrible song into the radio world. Let’s refer to it as ‘The Calamity’ from now on. The Calamity is being broadcasted through the ether by almost every mainstream radio channel of this planet. They open our mouths and spill a huge stream of toxic and putrid waste down our throats.

From overly auto tuned RnB to overly auto tuned pop songs or artists who try to be edgy, that is what mainstream means today. “Oh, look at me, I’m special and edgy”, all the pop stars seem to cry out. No, you should be ashamed of yourself for ruining a beautiful art like music. Yes Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Usher, I’m pointing at you. You have beautiful voices, yet you feel inclined to throw your bung onto the huge pile attributing to The Calamity.

Let’s switch over to the miserable piece of garbage that goes by the name of Chris Brown. Besides the fact that he beat the hell out of the pretty girl Rihanna (a beacon of hope in the Calamity community), he is the ultimate leader of The Calamity with songs that are auto tuned beyond recognition. Those songs treat lovely subjects as partying until you die, the wonderful joy of unprotected sex and smacking your girlfriend. That not only makes him a terrific ‘singer’ or ‘musician’, it makes him a disaster of a human being. Yet, his brainless fans, called Breezy’s adore him as if he is The Lord reborn.

The latest abortion coming out of the musical world however is a co-operation between Will.i.am and Britney Spears. I won’t even try to describe the emotional scarring that song left on me. I’m only going to say that if I ever wake up again with that song blasting out of my clock radio in the morning, I don’t want to be responsible for my actions anymore.

So please, producers and so-called artists, stop this Calamity. Leave it to the talented.

Wow, it seems to have been a LONG while since I’ve posted here.. This place needs a little paint and some new banging tunes or it just won’t do! Luckily for everyone who might still stumble on this little blog o’ mine, I’ve got the exact amount of tunes to make you forget that I’m not going to paint the place.

I have to admit that I’ve become a bit of a dubstep junk the last half year. Not to the extent of listening to nothing BUT dubstep, but I do need my fix every once in a while. And that’s where Eptic comes in, fresh off the new “Obey” EP!

Eptic – Obey

Some other fresh stuff, including some electro for those still stuck in 2005.. Nah kidding, it’s fresh alright. Very.

Chase & Status – Blind Faith (Trolley Snatcha remix)

Hey Today! – Strange (Polymorphic remix)

Asser – Unstoppable

Ntrld – Let ya Glock burst

And to finish this madness off, a nice “new” Clockwork remix I’ve been hunting ever since I heard it on his Soundcloud somewhere in October. Still no luck, I’ll post it when I find it. Just listen to that kitty purrrrrr!

 

1997 (Clockwork Remix)- Mercurius FM by ClockworkMusic

 

Cy’all whenever I feel like posting again 😉

Woot dubstep

Have I ever posted dubstep here? I don’t remember doing so… So here’s some downtempo madness for y’all! Hosted on Zippyshare because Mediafire was being a total bitch.

A beautiful dubstep mix of a song from Twilight (if you can turn Twilight into dubstep, you’re the man!). Haven’t heard of Blue Foundation before but that’s probably because I don’t listen to the Twilight soundtrack. Name to remember here is Zed’s Dead, clicking will take you to this Canadian badboy’s Myspace!

Blue Foundation – Eyes on Fire (Zed’s Dead remix)

Then there’s this gem of a Flux Pavillion remix, off Dj Fresh’s newly released “Gold Dust EP”. Dancefloor material fo sho.

Dj Fresh – Gold Dust (Flux Pavillion remix)

And something very smooth and calm from Modestep, using a vocal that sounds familiar to me but that I can’t really give a place in space or time. Timeless class and a big fat bass.

Modestep – Exile

Enjoy!

There’s always one idiot who’ll ask: “What does EEAA even stand for?”

I’d say

WHO FUCKING CARES WHEN IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS!?

Words can’t describe that drop

Shinichi Osawa – EEAA (Mustard Pimp remix)

NOTHING’S Lazerproof

May 26, 2010

Wo. Epic idea from whoever it was that came up with this awesome collab! Major Lazer teamed up with La Roux and together they’ve made some sort of crossover CD.. Not sure what to call it: some call it a mixtape, others call it a full record, I’ll just call it a beautiful and, often enough, danceable package.

Go get it while it’s hot at http://sub.maddecent.com/lazerproof/!

EXTRA (can’t leave you all without a personal slice of paradise)

Both Belgian products: one from The Subs, established partyraisers, and the other from depuis91, an up-and-coming electro-master!

The Subs – Vomit in style

depuis91 – Athlantiq

and a little something something from Soundcloud, Legobricks‘ KAMAGRA, be sure to check it out because

it! Kicks! Ass!

Enjoy!

A really chilled-out post today to reflect my posting of the last few weeks: I’ve been busy and even when I wasn’t there was always an excuse not to make another post… But I’ve been impressed by a certain Belgian DJ duo lately and I wanted to share it with someone, so here we are!

The duo that’s been on my mind is Aeroplane, and these guys are one of Belgium’s major musical export products. You could compare their international appeal with that of 2 Many DJ’s and to a lesser extent The Subs. Their essential mix on BBC Radio 1 last week (they were the 500th DJ/producer who were given the opportunity to make such a mix) really opened my eyes, and watching some clips on Youtube I soon discovered that I really hope this sort of music becomes a part of the mainstream culture. It’s just all so… easy to listen to!

Here you go people, Aeroplane! First their “Chart mix” for March:

And then there’s the Essential mix they made for BBC Radio 1

Aeroplane – Essential mix BBC Radio 1

.. and because I know this is way too soft, some hot shit you’ve been missing out on:

The Subs – Pope of Dope

Dada Life – Cookies with a smile

Sub Beat Project – Beaut (David Vade remix)

Enjoy!

Absolutely HUGE shit today! Belgium-based Modek is soon releasing his new EP, and it sounds as if the birds will fall from the sky when you play it… Shit just melts around my speakers, if you know what I’m saying?

Without further ado:

I’ve also got an EP teaser vid, check that one out too!

EXTRA:

You might expect me to post something a bit… rougher, but sometimes you just need to chill! Enjoy…

Yolanda Be Cool & DCup – We no speak Americano (Original mix)

Aloe Blacc – I need a dollar (Cities of Gold remix)
