Kid Ink has released his first studio album on a major label “My Own Lane” with the stlye and polish you’d expect from his mixtapes (high quality and EP-seeming on their own). The smash single “Show Me (feat. Chris Brown)” is tearing up the airwaves and the album is full of bangers as well. Ink has several big name features on the album including, Machine Gun Kelly, Tyga, Pusha T and Elle Varner among others.
Some quick ‘skim-through’ highlights:
Track 2 – The Movement
Track 8 – Murda (Feat. Pusha T)
Track 10 – Tattoo of My Name
Track 11 – No Miracles (feat. Machine Gun Kelly and Elle Varner
Track 12 – I Don’t Care (feat. Maejor Ali)
Ke$ha and Pitbull have taken their hit single, “Timber” to the top of the Hot 100 charts, according to Billboard. This marks the second single for Pitbull to top No. 1 charts and the third for Ke$ha. Pitbull previously held the top spot with “Give Me Everything” feat. Ne-Yo Afrojack and Nayer in early July 2011, while Kesha’s “Tik Tok” and “We R Who We R” topped the chart for several consecutive weeks in 2010. The song is currently at No. 2 on the iTunes Top 100 just behind Katy Perry and Juicy J.’s “Dark Horse.”
“Timber” combines Ke$ha’s catchy hooks and Pitbull’s usual ahem…”style” of rapping over blues harmonica melodies to a dance beat. The result is far more pleasing to the ear and while I have never been a fan of Pitbull lyrically his effort on this song seems much more, organic. Ke$ha only further saves this song with a hook only she could pull off. All this song needs now is a couple of good EDM remixes!
DJ Hoodboi and FLCNS deliver a massive remix of Ty Dolla $ign‘s summer smash hit “Paranoid” classifying their remix as, New Jersey House, I can’t stop playing this remix. The deconstruction of the beat and repetitive hooks from the original song create a very dance-floor ready tune that any DJ, or casual music listener can appreciate.
Ty Dolla $ign has been blowing up on the West Coastand in Atlanta since his release ofBeach House 2. Follow him on Twitter at @tydollasign also be sure to follow and support DJ Hoodboi and the Falcons at @djhoodboi and @FLCNS respectively!
The Adventure Club show held on December 28, 2013 was quite a rousing concert. It was almost hard to believe though that this was the same duo that got me into dubstep a year ago. Performing at Opera, the Illuminate event brought high energy and exquisite show techniques buried in the bro environment. The atmospheric vibe marred by a crowded room. The performance was also marred by several repeats of too well-known songs in playlist consisting of little variety.
Adventure Club came with all the same hype, lights and high energy one would expect from one of the most recognized groups in the EDM/Dubstep genre. Sadly, some of the opening acts actually put on a better show than Adventure Club. MK ULTRA and SnellVillain opened with some of the more eclectic sounds of the genre. The opening acts pumped up the crowd and going well with the audience’s glow sticks and light generating mittens consisting of all the colors of the rainbow.
On my YouTube page I captured a few of the moments when Adventure Club strayed from some of their most popular songs such as “Collect Call” & “Crave You,” which they played each at least 2 or 3 times. Unfortunately, I didn’t even hear some of their newer tracks or if I did they played them so seldomky, I hardly noticed. It would have been nice to hear some of the songs off of their Superheroes Vol. 3 mix, but they tended to play it a little too safe. MK ULTRA was the surprise highlight of the night for me, spinning several new songs and remixes, or if they were old, complimented the rave environment and hyped the crowd up much more than AC.

Adventure Club dropping it like it’s hot at Opera. Aside from several old songs they played multiple times, the concert while chock with “bros” was still a high-energy EDM fest, or in other words, a rave.
