[THROWBACK] Amazon Rain – B-Complex (DRUM ‘N BASS)


http://youtu.be/lxkZjs8aVuo Throwback to a great Drum ‘N Bass track I discovered about a year ago to beat this icy weather. “Amazon Rain” is a beautiful track that builds a melodic overtone throughout the song getting stronger and climaxing midway through. If you don’t have time for the lengthy though ear-pleasing building that lasts around 4 minutes skip to about the 4:30 mark. The vibe of the song will get you moving, or make you feel like you should be moving (great for racing…games, don’t race to this track, especially not in this weather!) If you’d like to hear another jam from B-Complex that is just as atmospheric in its melody and complex in its beat (and even features female vocals!) check out “Broken Windows (feat. ill-esha)” – http://youtu.be/NGQYq0E3Xzs

Adventure Club LIVE! Review 3.5/5


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.

Some stylish music for rap/choreo. Parov Stelar’s “Booty Swing”


Parov Stelar – Booty Swing [Classical EDM Music]

I like me some Parov Stelar. He produces some great stuff with a jazz, classical vibe mixed with electronic influence. Many of his songs feature saxophones used in ways even my dad might appreciate (and he hates my music, or at least he used to).

Funny my grandfather was a saxophonist…..
This song & Chambermaid Swing (from the alcohol commercial) are two personal favorites. You can find Youtube Videos for each and Youtube Remix Music Videos (where people synced old-timey dance video’s with Stelar’s neo-classical elecrtro-dance songs).

Again not local ATL sorry, but good music nonetheless. Local acts coming soon!!
