Live from Common Ave

This is the newest release from the Cleveland-based collective Common ave – outside of their debut “Aurora Borealis EP”.  As we get into 2015 there’s a distinct feeling that these guys are sitting on a good amount of quality music that’s being quietly refined into something major. Luckily for you, you can see this refinement […]

Shanti Breaks

DJ Shanti is truly doing gods work. In Latvia. The dude is pushing 1700 uploads right now, as you listen to any one of them you cant help but wonder why breakbeats aren’t more popular in 2015. I mean it’s more enjoyable than beatport top 10..but that’s just us..   Another impressive thing about Shanti is the […]

Unorthodox Remixd

The tinker-toy remixes of Smelku are truly something to behold. It’s like someone stealing an audio feed to a nursery, or a WiiU, and then playing back acapellas on a turntable through a mixer. A large collection of music on his page is pulled from various Nintendo/Mario Levels, and a lot of it works out […]

Either Now Or Never

ENON is one of the hardest working producers I know. I first met the guy at a bar among some mutual friends in Cleveland about 6 years ago. We talked quite a bit about production and since then I’ve kept an eye on what he’s been doing musically. Since Instagram showed up, ENON posts what seems like […]

Best Music Videos Ever. Period.

So, this isn’t exactly a post about music. I know, I know; “you’re a music blog, why would you write about anything else?” Instead of answering that question, I’ll just ignore it, and jump right in. I almost always HATE music videos. They tend to either be way too literal and remove any chance of […]

Black Midi

I’m loving this concept of Black Midi right now. Why? More than anything else, the entire genre/movement/competition/sub-culture is built around excess. It’s a bunch of people remixing and remaking the same songs and just ADDING notes while trying to still keep things listenable.  When you have no limit to the number of “fingers” playing a […]

raido January 22

Celebrate Raido’s birthday with us. It’s worth celebrating, we promise.

Costa Rican Producer Raido has that ethereal sound that is only found in the rare individuals that “get it”. There’s no flash, no naked chicks, no twerking, no high production studios, just the stripped down, butt-ass-naked music. Really, its the beauty of home production perfectly encapsulated and represented by triangle waves, bloopy synths, sidechains, pitch […]
