I’m happy to see that even in Orlando, HIP HOP LIVES.
Meet Stellar Dexterz.
Residing right here in Orlando, JERZY-ROCZ and HBK are changing the face of fly. I’ll let their tracks speak for themselves. Check out what rhymes they have to offer on their myspace page. If you like what you hear you can check them out on July 17 at Will’s Pub or on July 25th at AKA Lounge. Make sure you thank them for keeping Hip Hop ALIVE here in Orlando.
Don’t think that because you’re not french you can’t make great electro/house music. Thanks to some really cool foreign web designer named Matias Najle, you’re now able to do all the crazy shit those robots do from the comfort of your own home! Check this shit out:
It’s been too long. Far, far far too long since MSTRKRFT has released their electro MSTRPC (masterpiece), The Looks. Now, about 3 years later, Canada’s synth-shredding superheroes are finally ready to release their long awaited sophomore effort, Fist of God.
After 2008, an entire year deprived of quality electro, will MSTRKRFT be able to revive the young and dying genre? Will Fist of God jumpstart the electro renaissance of ’06/’07. Unfortunately, I think not.
For this second LP, those crazy Canadians have enlisted the vocal help of a slew of artists, including Ghostface Killa and E-40, but I assure you, this wont help resusitate a quickly dying breed. The only thing that this new album guarantees is the complete transformation of electro, from underground club gold to mainstream radio crud. MSTRKRFT’s tracks WILL receive radio play. I’m predicting that now. That’s not even a bold prediction, see as how Crookers have managed to seep into the airwaves through their remix of Kid Cudi’s “Day and Night.” MSTRKRFT will manage to have the first (and last) decent electro track climb up the charts, and once that happens we all know what comes next:
I’m not going to post any of their new tracks, since they aren’t that great and we’d probably be asked to take them down anyway. Instead I’m going to take you back in time, so that you can reminisce about the era in which MSTRKRFT was DFA 1979…with drum sequencers.
I say, EH, could be better. A-Trak dropped his “Say Whoa” LP recently. I generally love whatever A-Trak gets his hands on, but this time around the whole effort is just kind of iffy. The record has the original plus remixes from masters Boys Noize and Sinden, which I also found sub-par. NONE of the songs really get good until about 3 minutes in.
A-Trak Loves The Simpsons, fah real
The A-Trak original is the best. The Boys Noize version, while is quintessential “Boys Noize”, just doesn’t really get great, and seems rushed. The Sinden tune has up’s and downs, but never really reaches it’s potential.
I might be over-analyzing these 3 songs, but i expect more from these 3 badasses. BUT the songs are still better then most crap I keep running across, so grab them plus this bonus A-Trak joint which I like a bit better, but again, not great.
