Well it’s been over a month since Crizzly and Figure first crawled into a bus together to begin their co-headlining “All Black Everywhere” that has taken them from coast to coast playing at some of the most famous nightclubs in the country. With all of the downtime between shows and miles logged on the road it was only a matter of time that an official collaboration would surface. Crizzly, a huge fan of hip hop, has incorporated countless samples into this single while Figure has brought his signature mix of blasting bass. The teamwork goes way beyond sharing deck duties for these two as you all can now download this original track for free. And be sure to check them out as they end their tour in New York City this Friday at Webster Hall before reuniting in Seattle for Resolution NYE!
God damn Crizzly cannot be touched! He is on a war path to define himself as king of crunkstep, blasting the beats that we all want.. whether we know it or not. His recent mixtape found its’ way to a constant repeat on my laptop and in my car. Crizzly’s unique vision of hip hop, trap, and bass has set himself apart from the crowd and become a destination at any festival that we are both attending. Jay Z‘s Holy Grail album has seen remixes from all types of musical backgrounds, however I firmly believe that no one could even image what Crizzly was going to do with the hit single, Tom Ford. Once again, I cannot get enough of this track, I’m sure the neighbors have learned to hate the day that Crizzly releases a track.
Crizzly just announced a co-headlining tour with Figure, The “All Black Everywhere Tour.” The two will alternate headline sets as they travel up and down and all the way across the states this fall. This tour is not to be missed so be sure to check the complete schedule of stops below!
As we get closer and closer to the end of 2012, many of dance music’s biggest names are pushing to get out quality tracks to close out the year with. They’ve spent weeks upon weeks touring all around the world, but in the mean time have been working in between shows to create the awesome tracks that fans recognize them by. We’ve got plenty of EDM big shots looking to push some big productions out this month, and here’s what is in store for just this week!
Figure — Monsters, Volume 3
Bassnectar — Freestyle EP
Seven Lions — Days To Come
Dada Life — The Rules of Dada
Some big names on that list! Figure is coming back with some hardcore bass music as he returns just in time for Halloween with his Monsters series! Bassnectar drops his Freestyle EP to compliment his tour and his mixtape from last week, which in case you missed it, we posted it here for you guys so you can gear up for the EP. Here’s a track from the mixtape also as a little bonus!
We also had one of our other writers do a look into what to expect from the Seven Lions EP here, which looks to highlight their signature dubstep style. Finally, we have some house music in the form of our friends Dada Life. This is a full album, containing much of their previous hit singles, along with plenty of new material for fans to enjoy!
The local Colorado group that has seen exponential growth over the past few years is back with their first release from their upcoming album, Heat.wav, dropping August 13th. Having some fun with words the single mashes the group’s name and the title of a popular Flux song for an absolute banging sound. Banana Cannon maintains the glitched synth that RPM is known for, while introducing some serious wobbles throughout the track. This track was first played on HOT 107.1 on Friday, and I have been patiently waiting for its’ release since then. With RPM’s growing success, the Colorado community will get two changes in the near future to catch the trio live. First, at legendary Red Rocks opening for another Colorado group, SAVOY, then in September they will be playing along side Figure and Lazerdisk Party Sex at Cervantes Masterpiece. Please support the local talent!
September 7th: Red Rocks w/ SAVOY, Krewella, Sofi, and Modestep
September 21st: Cervantes w/ Figure, Lazerdisk Party Sex, and more
Thanks for tuning into another weekly weather report, coming up we have some really dense formations coming in with scattered bass showers lasting long into the evening.
This week I have been reaching back into the depths of my harddrive to find some tunes that have really hit home with me over the years, as well as some fresh new music that I think you all will enjoy.
So with artists such as Crizzly, Sub Focus, Mt Eden, Bassnectar, Figure and new found wall rattler GTRONIC, its safe to say that this week will drop like a lead filled keg from a 3rd story window, as always enjoy, cheers!
Here is some Big Booty Bass from the one and only Crizzly
Crizzly – Big Booty Bitchezz (This goes out to a certain group of Tupper ground girls)
This is some really good bass music from up and comer GTRONIC
I have always been a huge fan of Figure so here is a new track and a favorite.
And below is a small after-shower of tunes by a few artists that really brought me into this entire area of music.

For those of you who have attended Baltimore, MD electronic music festival Starscape before, this scene should look familiar. Most likely, it is the same scene with which you both started and ended your festival experience (minus the fat chick). Starscape takes place right on the harbor of the Chesapeake Bay. And that itself is truly awesome. But the thing that makes Starscape so special is this: remember that notion of pacing yourself for music festivals? Starscape’s never heard of it.
While that mentality has resulted in a fair share of mishaps (one of which, in 2010, I was unfortunate enough to witness), it certainly breeds an energy and ferocity unlike any other festival I’ve ever been to. The gates open at 2 PM on Saturday and do not close well into the morning on Sunday. Once you enter, you are inside the gauntlet for the better part of 16 hours. And boy is there a lot of good music to enjoy during that time.
