NINA LAS VEGAS | 'EZY OR NEVER' | Album Review

NINA LAS VEGAS | 'EZY OR NEVER' | Album Review | Music | Scoop.it
EZY or Never opens with the partial title track, "EZY." A deep house track with lots of pop danceability, "EZY" states in no uncertain terms why Nina is so popular currently. The next track, "Contagious (feat. Snappy Jit)" is probably the most interesting track of the three on EZY or Never, with party hype syncopation and MIA-style lyrics.

#EPTICKETGIVEAWAY | SOPHIE with special performance by Charli XCX | El Rey Theatre 3/25

#EPTICKETGIVEAWAY | SOPHIE with special performance by Charli XCX | El Rey Theatre 3/25 | Music | Scoop.it
The proper thing on the mind of 20-year-old shooting star Charli XCX is an album long in the making, one which finally sees the light of day in 2013. The wait has been as agonizing for Charli as it has been for her fan base -- rapidly swelling on both sides of the Atlantic, but patience has paid handsome dividends. The debut album she releases in 2013 -- perhaps unlike the album she could have released in 2012, or even 2011 -- finds XCX's vision fully realized. Sweeping synths, crunchy beats, emotive vocals, coy raps, spiky and persuasive lyricism and big ideas about life, love and everything else: The album tracks (and soundtracks) Charli's journey from teenager to young woman, but deftly swerves coming-of-age clichés.

Kendrick Lamar "untitled unmastered” | Album Review

Kendrick Lamar "untitled unmastered” | Album Review | Music | Scoop.it
The beauty of the music world/industry today, is that there seems to be a general lack of rules. With so many outlets to distribute music, some being for profit, some for not, most not constrained to those strict timelines of record labels anymore, it allows artists to release what they want, when they want. So when the king of rap (currently) wants to release some demos off of his latest album, the unparalleled, To Pimp a Butterfly, everyone gasps, accepts, raves, and then embraces the unmastered gems that this man can create.

Eliot Sumner w/ Cellie Barnes | the Echo 3/8/16 | Live Review & Photos | Music | Scoop.it
Eliot Sumner performed at the Echo Tuesday night in support of her debut solo album ‘Information.’ Armed with a massive bass, a jump suit and high-pitched vocals, the Italian musician began the night with ‘Dead Arms and Legs.’ The slow approach introduction provided an adequate portrayal of the undertone elements highlighted by Sumner’s vocal range. Choruses echoed across the venue as they welcomed the aggressive anticipation of electric melodies colliding with thunderous cymbals. Sumner provided the audience with a certain level of serenity with her voice, giving soothing beats of optimism wrapped with heavy bass lines.

Prince | His Legacy to the Music World

Prince | His Legacy to the Music World | Music | Scoop.it
Prince recorded a number of songs that topped the charts and worked their way into the hearts of his fans. “When Doves Cry” and “I Wanna Be Your Lover” are instantly recognizable when they come on the radio, and albums like “1999” and “Purple Rain” sold millions of copies since their release. But it’s more than just his album sales or how popular his music is—it’s the fact that he connected with people through his music on a personal level. Everyone has that one Prince song that seemed to be talking directly to them.

Wolkoff | Without Shame | Album Review | Music | Scoop.it
Without Shame opens with "While You Still Can," a pop-infused dance track with an Asian motif, courtesy of a unique stringed oversample. Wolkoff's vocals are a little more wispy than usual, but the match the bubblegum pop melody and beat.

Sieren | 'Transients of Light' | Album Review | Music | Scoop.it
Matt Sieren, known in the electronic music world as simply Sieren, has been gaining steam since 2013 with his trippy, house-based remixes of popular dance and even sometimes rock tunes. This year, he has challenged himself by releasing a full-length album called Transients of Light. Due out on April 15 on Ki Records. This album is a study in different types of ambient, experimental and chill house formats. The album has been hotly anticipated as Sieren hasn't released much original material since his 2015 EP, Inside Out. The release has thus been a closely guarded secret, with not even a streaming link online as of yet.

CRSSD Festival Spring 2016 | Live Review & Photos

Last weekend saw the newly minted waterfront park in downtown  San Diego host the CRSSD (Crossed San Diego) Festival for its third installment. It's safe to say that the park, usually a municipal monument to San Diego's Administration building, has not seen this much action since the the last time CRSSD brought their anarchic, slightly ravey festival to these shores in October. The idyllic San Diego skyline and Maritime Museum watched over 30 djs, bands and rave-analog hybrids and a crowd of at least 25,000 as the coast's answer to Coachella's electronic stages brought mellow party vibes with a San Diego twist.
