[Rap/Future Wave] Rich Boy – Paradise (feat. Lil Hick & Dev)


Rich Boy sellin’ crackF*ck niggas wanna jack / Sh*t tight no slackJust bought a Cadillac (Throw some D’s on that b*tch!)
Just bought a Cadillac (Throw some D’s on that bitch!)
Just bought a Cadillac!”

Rich Boy, of “Throw Some D’s” fame (see below) has released a new track with Lil’ Hick and Dev (the singer associated with The Cataracs and Far East Movement, sang the chorus on “Like a G6”). The track is a mélange of hip-hop, electro sounds, smooth wavey piano chords and calming vocals in the chorus and background. Give it a listen and decide what you think of it!


The song that put Rich Boy on the map (released back when I was in high school, but a classic nonetheless!)

[Trance/House Anthem] Arty, BT & Nadia Ali – Must Be the Love (Dannic Remix)


EDM artist, Dannic, delivers an uplifting trance-house anthem in his remix of Arty, BT & Nadia Ali’s smash hit “Must Be the Love”. Ali is a prominent songstress on her own with sultry vocals that fit perfectly onto EDM tracks. BT is a world-renowned, music “designer” whose music has not only birthed genres but been featured in numerous films and scores. Arty is a rising Russian EDM producer and DJ who was worked with artists such as Markus Schulz, Above & Beyond, Gareth Emery, and Armin Van Buuren.

Nadia Ali is quite the popular songstress in the EDM world. Featured on many artists tracks and producing music of her own she is a sought after female vocalist. Ali first gained popularity in the dance group “iiO” which debuted their 2001 single “Rapture” which became an instant dance hit and 2002’s “At the End”. Ali eventually left the group to pursue a solo career in electronic music and has worked with a wide range of artists.

BT’s accomplishments are too many to count but one of his greater feats is holding the Guiness World Record for song with the most number of edits (vocally in this case) with over 6,000 audio edits in the track Somnambulist “Simply Being Loved”. The song was also featured in the popular Dance Dance Revolution music video game series.

Adventure Club LIVE! Review 3.5/5

Adventure Club hypes up Atlanta, but sells out to mainstream


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.
