We are all Beastie Boys fans whether we know it are not. They are truly legendary and had a significant impact on the music world. Today we unfortunately lost a great MC. Adam Yauch, known as MCA from the Beastie Boys passed away at age 47 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
I will definitely be blasting some Beastie Boys today. Take a Beastie Boys cd to your parties tonight and at least make sure to kick back and jam one track with your homies today. I’m about to light one up and pay tribute myself.
Rest In Peace MCA!
You know the feeling when one of your favorite artists remixes one of your favorite songs? That’s what I was blessed with today. MiMoSA’s trap style take on Above & Beyond’s trancey “Sun & Moon” is a certified banger. I just hope genre sticklers don’t ever try to coin and use the term “trap trance” because (a) you heard it hear first and (b) that’s just stupid. Enjoy and download this track though, it is awesome!
Our boy Gramatik is back with a brand new video. This one for his dubstep banger “Solidified” off the new #digitalfreedom free EP. For this video, the director Brad Hasse created a story around “bokeh” images, which are the circles of light in which the monsters appear throughout the video. “Solidified” was perfect for this concept, as it plays off the tracks darker, heavier sound while still maintaining a certain playfulness. If you haven’t downloaded the new EP, you can do so here. You can check out the new video right below!
