[TICKET GIVEAWAY] The Oxford Group & Project Drop Proudly Present: RL GRIME @ Rumor Boston 10/17

Suit up Boston, RL Grime is coming to town. Otherwise known as his alter-ego, Clockwork, the young DJ from Los Angeles is currently on the move from city to city as a part of his 13-stop North American “2013 Fall Tour“. He’s got an extremely unique, cool, mysterious, progressive sound that’ll leave you in astonishment. After debuting his first EP “Grapes” featuring Shlohmo, Salva, and LOL Boys in 2012, he has gained a lot of respect and support from some of the hottest producers in the game a few being Diplo, Flosstradamus, A-Trak, and 12th Planet. Over the course of a year or so, he has written some dope remixes that absolutely blew up. Listen to some of his most popular music below: Benny Benassi-Satisfaction (RL Grime remix), Rihanna-Pour It Up (RL Grime remix), his original international club anthem “Trap On Acid”, Kanye West-Mercy (RL Grime & Salva Remix), and his Mix for Diplo and Friends.

As the impressive winning streak continues by the collaborative between The Oxford Group and Project Drop, they are proudly presenting the event and we were able to lock down a ticket giveaway contest for all you avid MMIBTY readers. Lucky for some of us, the based ‘Stine will be hitting Massachusetts hard with two of our own stops on his tour. He must really like us for the trap-tappin’, love for the streets, hoodrats that we are or think we are. Either way, we love his grimey beats and are always ready to throw down with a musical prodigy like RL. On Thursday October 17th, he’ll be tearing up Rumor Boston Nightclub, and on Friday October 18th he’ll be at Diva’s Nightclub in Northhampton.

It’s Finally Friday and I’m Listening to Felguk

As if the near-100-degree heat here in Boston today isn’t enough, I’m turning up the temperature with Felguk‘s new Slice & Dice EP released on their own Dongle Records. This six-track big boy was released last Tuesday, so I apologize for the delayed post, but I think it was worth the wait. The Brazilian duo, Felipe Lozinsky and Gustavo Rozenthal, have been releasing music since 2007 and are just one example of successful Electro-House producers and DJs coming from South America – other notable artists include Dirtyloud, Darth & Vader, and FTampa (all from Brazil). I’ll admit I haven’t dived as deep into Felguk’s catalog as I would have liked, but I can tell you that the tracks I HAVE heard are pure Electro-House gold. And I’m talking REAL Electro-House, none of that Big Room nonsense. And sometimes, by the way, they produce Dubstep.  So it’s all good, aggressive dance music.

I’m really impressed by what Felguk did with the Slice & Dice EP. Not only is the collection six tracks, when some EPs are just two, but each song has its own identity. The title track “Slice & Dice” is a standout and my early favorite from the EP. So much so that when I first heard it I sent it out to a bunch of friends I knew would appreciate it. I have a weakness for high-pitched chopped-up vocals and “Slice & Dice” delivers that on top of screaming synths and a simply dirty Electro wobbly drop. It’s pure heaven for the Electro-House fan. Rounding out my top-three are “Get Down” and “Shine On”. “Get Down” is a fun Electro-House track that will cause you to nod your head and stomp your feet, featuring some off-beat patterns and a repeating “down down down” vocal hook. “Shine Down” is a Reggae-infused Dubstep jam that was produced in collaboration with Israeli duo Infected Mushroom, a definite surprise to me considering they come from opposite sides of the track.

Other notes:
-”Loudblue” reminds me a bit of Avicii & Nicky Romero’s “I Could Be the One”
-12th Planet‘s remix of “Slice & Dice” is pretty epic and gets nice and Trappy

If you want to grab the entire EP head over to Beatport to purchase it. You can also stream Slice & Dice on Felguk’s SoundCloud page.

Meltdown Music Festival 2013 In Review

So I would just like to start out by saying – Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas knows how to turn the fuck up. No questions asked. And I’m not just saying that because I’m from here but well… having gone to many of these Full Access, Prototype Industries, and Disco Donnie Presents, etc. shows – I feel like I’m deserving enough to be considered a bit of a connoisseur of the Texas EDM scene and can deem DFW as a huge factor of it. I had attended Meltdown last year and although they changed the venue this time around (which was extremely last-minute – two days before the show…YIKES!) there was no stopping to the crazy momentum they have kept up these past few years, especially with the big names they bring out.

Continue reading to hear about how a press pass turned into being escorted around the festival grounds by duo, Gent & Jawns + more crazy stories and a review of the set’s I caught which include Kill Paris, Candyland, Carnage, Deniz Koyu, Adventure Club, Zomboy, 12th Planet, Morgan Page, Flux Pavilion, Bro Safari, and Justice.

Meltdown Music Festival brings ‘We Are All Together’

Spring has sprung, summer is on its way, and with this, comes the unification of beautiful people all emerging together for the sole purpose of amazing music a.k.a. festival season. The EDM industry is broadening as a whole and because of this many different festivals have come about all across the US including one that is coming forth for its consecutive year, Meltdown. Meltdown music festival is happening on Saturday, the 27th of April at Quiktrip Park in Grand Prairie bringing Justice (DJ set), Flux Pavilion, Bro Safari, Gents and Jawns, + many more, and yes that’s Grand Prairie, TEXAS I’m talking about. MMIBTY has been representing a different side of the states for a while now; being a new writer, I would like to introduce a more southern aspect to things around here. Bringing together the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas EDM community – Prototype Industries, Full Access Events, and Disco Donnie Presents are presenting some big acts to Texas just like they have in the past with EDM related events such as, U.M.E (Ultimate Music Experience in South Padre Island, TX), Sun City Music Festival (El Paso, TX), and plenty of other headliners in Concert Halls/Nightclubs around this wonderful state. They don’t say everything’s bigger in Texas for nothing, that’s for sure.

MMIBTY’s Electric Zoo Afterparty Picks

We’re just days away from the NYC’s largest EDM festival and I couldn’t be more excited. Despite my (personal) issues at last year’s festival with the NYPD, I had to go back again to experience the incredible lineup that Made Event has put together for this year’s Electric Zoo. What’s more, the festival has followed in the footsteps of many others by putting together official afterparties for the first time. Spanning some of the best venues in NYC including the prominent Best Buy Theater in Times Square (formerly Nokia Theater) and the famous Roseland Ballroom, these afterparties are a surefire way to keep the party going long into the early morning, taking full advantage of NYC’s epic 4AM last call. Let’s take a look at MMIBTY’s picks for the afterhours festivities this year:

Friday 8/31 – 12th Planet, Araab Muzik, Mt. Eden, Netsky & Zeds Dead @ Best Buy Theater

What better way to kick off the first night of the festival with blaring dub in the wee hours of the morning? While Electric Zoo has had a relatively weak dubstep presence the past few years, they’ve stepped it up this year by inviting some of the biggest names in the genre to come perform. And grouping them all together for an afterparty may be a polarizing move for those who would be split between this afterparty and the Ferry Corsten and Michael Woods show at Roseland, but this is our pick for sure. Not only is Best Buy a much more intimate venue than Roseland but after finishing off the day with house, trance and Pretty Lights, chances are you’ll be interested in something a little heavier. Tickets are $45 for a limited time.

Saturday 9/1 – Benny Benassi, Bingo Players, Adrien Lux & Peacetreaty @ Roseland Ballroom

This pick is a hard one for me as Marcus Shultz, who will be performing over at Best Buy Saturday night, absolutely kills it live. But I like variety (and the Bingo Players) a lot so I have to pick the one with the most acts. Benassi is obviously a juggernaut but I think the real highlights of this evening will be the Bingo Players and Adrien Lux. While I’ve never had a chance to see either one of the latter, I can only imagine they’ll put on a hell of performance from what I’ve heard. It’s really a pick your poison kind of night. Tickets to either show will run you $55 for Saturday.

Sunday 9/2 – Hardwell, Zedd, Bart B More, Treasure Fingers @ Roseland Ballroom

This show is a no brainer for me. An odd collection of house, electro, techno and disco (respectively) should provide for a very diverse and exciting way to finish off the last hours of the weekend. I’ve had the opportunity to see all of these acts and each one will definitely put forth a hell of a set. Tickets are $55 while supplies last and I don’t doubt this one will sell out with Labor Day the next day buying everyone another late night out. Make it down there early to catch Treasure Fingers!

Note to non-New Yorkers: Any and all drinks will run your wallet dry at these venues, so come fully lubricated. Also, not to sound like a bitch, but Roseland’s sound will make your ears bleed so you might want to consider earplugs.

All the info on every official afterparty and tickets can be found here. See you all this weekend you crazy kids.

P.S. Our friends at Magnum PR are looking to get the word out about their unofficial afterparty at downtown’s Webster Hall. On Friday night, they will be hosting one of our personal favorites Gramatik alongside Kid Koala and Paul Basic for the very low price of $5 for under 21 and $10 for 19-20 year olds with an Electric Zoo wristband, provided you make it there by midnight (so FYI you’ll have to leave Randall’s early to make it down there by 12). All the info can be found here.
