Sometimes seeing your favorite rapper live just doesn’t live up to expectations. There’s always the risk that the quality of an overproduced album cannot be replicated in a live performance. Not only was listening to Juicy J live close to CD quality, he kept the crowd amped and dancing the entire show. The energy of the crowd never fizzled out. Juicy J showcased his turntable skills, invited fans on stage to dance, and even had a random person from the audience get on stage and freestyle.
He had the perfect amount of crowd interaction without having it mess up the flow and transitions into songs. The best part about the show was that he played all of his new tracks and classic Three Six Mafia throwbacks that had everyone in the Wilbur Theater singing along.
We captured some footage from his show here in Boston that you can check out below. If you haven’t seen Juicy J live yet, we strongly recommend it. You can catch him on his Stay Trippy Tour when it stops in a city near you! Big thanks to everyone at The Wilbur Theatre for letting us cover such an awesome event.
Panic City and Mistermike team up to make a huge remix of Summit from Skrillex and Ellie Goulding. I’m tellin’ yah, this remix is big — REAL BIG. I’ve been a huge fan of Mistermike for some time now so I’m stoked he linked up with my boy Panic City. I knew the track was gonna be killer before I even listened to it. The drops are BANANAS!
I’m so excited that SoMo is making a stop in Boston for his “Show Off Tour”. I think he is one of the best rising talents in the game right now — his vocals are unreal. He’s one of those natural born singers that when you hear him sing, it looks completely effortless.
I’ve been following SoMo on YouTube for a little over a year now and have been watching his fan base skyrocket. On his YouTube channel you’ll find a lot of popular covers that he’s performed. Most of his videos have hundreds of thousands of views, some even millions.
The thing that really caught my attention about SoMo wasn’t just his voice but his ability to make the covers he performs his own. Watch any reality singing show on TV and the judges will always criticize the talent for not sounding unique or bringing their own flavor to the song. This is actually a really hard thing for artists to breakthrough but SoMo has nailed it. Not to mention, he creates amazing original works as well.
If you haven’t heard of SoMo yet, check out some of his original work and covers I’ve posted below. Get prepared to be blown away!
DiBella sent me his latest mashup last night and I was really impressed. I haven’t heard any material from him in awhile,so this was a nice little surprise finding this in my inbox. The first half of the song is great but the second half is just massive.

Progressive lovers rejoice! Jeremy Olander is now producing a quarterly segment for friskyRadio entitled Vivrant Radio. The first hour-long segment aired April 22 and quickly found its way to #1 on friskyRadio’s Top 10 of the Week. The show itself features an eclectic mix of progressive house and techno woven together seamlessly in Jeremy’s trademark style, which has won over the hearts of big names such as Eric Prydz, Adam Beyer, John Digweed, and Pete Tong. You can hear the first installment of Vivrant Radio on Soundcloud, and tune-in to friskyRadio for the second installment in (hopefully) a few short months!
French Techno specialist Electric Rescue is no stranger to being separated from his contemporaries when it comes to producing music. To place Electric Rescue’s productions into one category would be a crying shame, because his catalog blurs the lines between techno’s sub genres and continues to have a progressive edge that reaches far out into the future. ER’s music is so forward thinking and unique that other producers may need to put abelton down and build a time machine to catch up with him!
His repertoire is featured on legendary labels such as SCI+TECH, Soma Records, Cocoon Recordings, Bedrock Records, Boys Noize Records, and Ideal Audio. Notable tracks from ER are Lili, Dope, Tilou, Erma, and most recently from his debut on Soma, No Garanty. On Thursday May 16th step further into the future and get a taste of Electric Rescue’s full length album with his Rave Child E.P, which will both be released via Bedrock Records.
By listening to the short samples via Electric Rescue’s soundcloud, The Rave Child E.P will be setting the stage properly for his monumental full album, Sonic Architecture, which is set for a June 10th release date. The title track, Rave Child, is one that takes the listener on a roller coaster of sound that is propelled by climatic strings, chanting vocals, and rhythms to replenish the soul of the dance floor. Germany’s Ryan Davis does an unbelievable job remixing this track, which certainly speaks to the title as being cinematic.
Davis’s version is a shimmering piece of Techno that sounds like the moment when the moon is just about to eclipse the sun and the whole dance floor is watching. Gosa Flight is a club ready track that contains warm crisp analog synths, and a beat that will give global sound systems a proper workout. Jardin D’Enfants is a techno beast that packs punching metallic keys and future sound effects straight from Electric Rescue’s laboratory. Be on the lookout for this E.P on May the 16th and his full album June the 10th via Bedrock Records.
