Eclectic Method has been mixing and splicing videos for years now to a point where he’s a master at his craft. Mixing together different vids and getting respect from the likes of Stephen Colbert, DJ Magazine, and Newsweek. "A Brief History of Sampling" is a short 3 minute video of some of the most well-known samples in hip hop and how it has been used throughout it’s time and in multiple ways. Drum breaks from the 70s and guitar riffs from the 80s are strung together with their hip hop counterpart. It’s very enjoyable and very well crafted. Enjoy.
★NEW 40 BPM TRACK★ ★EYES AND TEETH★ ★NEURONIC DISKELETOSIS (QUARTERSTEP)★ ★FOR ADVENTUROUS MC’S + EARS★
I have heard very little in the ‘SlowCore’ range.
I just made my first track at 40 bpm.
This was NOT a track made at higher bpm’s and then slowed down.
This was devised and programmed at 40 bpm.
Y’all like labels, so I’ma call this 40 bpm Electronic Music of mine #QuarterStep.
"Fuck You Mean" might be something I’m about to bite. Like the way it’s said is probably something I’m going to say just to annoy the fuck out of people because Lana Sez can attest on how much of a troll I am.
QuESt hops on this beat proclaiming his talents and ambitions while dealing with the obstacles and fake friends trying to bring him down. Produced 6ix, this track goes. A track dedicated to the haters who don’t get where he’s at as an artist. Look for him in the future.
Also, that jab at 2Chainz is just fuckin’ funny
The indie rock group, Gentleman Brawlers, objective is to make danceable rock music. The type of music that makes you wanna move on the dance floor and maintaining the core instruments. Their song “My Theory” does just that. The enchanting vocals capitavate the slick guitar riff that leads the track. It’s a memorable cross between latin funk, rock, and classical vibes. It’s something that NY indie scene is known for. If “My Theory” is simply a preview of what’s in store when the album comes out, then we’ll be expecting it graciously.
In this world of musical variety, it’s hard to put stuff in a box. Which isn’t a bad thing otherwise we would never be able to evolve as a species, You can call what Seattle beat producer, $SOUNDS$, is doing Chilltrap or Chillstep or Trapchill or whatever the hell you wanna call it. Just make sure you call it good. Compiling his best work, Various Vol. 2 can be used as another way to stimulate the mind or for any other based rapper to get on. Give it a listen.
I first heard the single "Hey Jane" from Mike Golden & Friends which cranks hard and I was expecting somewhat of a hardcore rap-rock album. Or at least something that you could jam the fuck out to with your peeps. In fact you can, but it isn’t the hardcore album I was expected but it’s still really good. Instead it’s a fluid rock album from a couple of guys from Chicago from top to bottom.
Kicking off with the energetic "Best Part", the lead singer belts out lyrics while right after "Every Morning Love" calms things down about a woman he has a crush on. "Utopia" as a whole though sounds like the many things that us men have to deal with as far as finding that one girl. Whether aggressively with the strong cologne and swagger in "Hey Jane" or "Pax et Bonum" which seems like a song dealing with a tough breakup. And we’ve all been there and we can all understand and frankly it fucking sucks. Regardless, this is a relateable album for the average guy.
"Utopia" is still a solid album even if you don’t feel like reminiscing about that one cheerleader that was digging you and you lost at a poetry session because her man said about 1000 sweet nothings to get her back. I’m not saying I know….I’m just saying. Overall though, Mike Golden & Friends give you a ranged album from blues crooning to energetic rock. Check their website for this and other work they’ve done.
