RL Grime @ Mixmag Live

Los Angeles producer RL Grime is at the forefront of the scene right now, thanks to rigorous productions like ‘Scylla’. His debut album ‘Void’ is a low-end onslaught and sees the producer traverse playful melodies, concrete bass drops and junglist rollers, paired with collaborations with Boys Noize, Djemba Djemba, Big Sean and How To Dress Well. He first came to the fore in 2012 when he released the frantic ‘Grapes’ on WeDidIt –with remixes by Salva, LOL Boys, Groundslava and Shlohmo – but it was his remix of Kanye West’s ‘Mercy’ (alongside Salva) that really got people talking.

If The End Of Edm Had A Soundtrack Hardwell’s Sally Would Be It!

To say the least the lyrics to Hardwell’s new song are deplorable and is receiving harsh criticisms unanimously down the board.   What makes the song so bad you say, its the lyrics. It seems that Hardwell and his team tried to emulate the 60’s rock and roll theme of oh the father hates me and kicked it up ten notch’s for the desensitized new generation.  I think its safe to say they went extremely over board and has left a bad taste in many consumers and media outlets mouths.  We have to admit we’re all human and allowed bad more »
