THROWBACK THURSDAYS: NITRO DELUXE & PROTECTING OUR PIONEERS

I’m not sure exactly how we’d go about it, but I feel like we really need to take care of our ground breaking musical pioneers. So often, they end up passing away with nothing to show for their ventures except a lifetime of hardship. I hope that no other artist, who has made a significant…

DUBSTEP BEFORE THE AMERICAN BRO

Do you remember when DUBSTEP was awesome? No really, do you? Because originally it was. But perhaps you missed out on that period of underground ingenuity. Or perhaps your memories have just been tarnished by the unfortunate outcome of what it became.

An old…

***THE DEAD ART OF DJING*** a rant by Gobs

Prior to 2011, I had been considering a career move to full-time DJ more and more. I had a great day job that prevented me from touring, and it was a very tough decision to quit that job, but in late 2011, with some positive reinforcement from my agent, I finally said goodbye to the…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: ODB, THE FOLK HERO OF HIP-HOP

There’s so much that can be said about OL DIRTY BASTARD that it’s nearly impossible to narrow it into a manageable article of highlights. Instead, I’ll just focus on a couple main points to sum up one of the most interesting figures in the history of music.

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: BEFORE GABBER THERE WAS HOLY NOISE

OLDSCHOOL RAVERS, this Thursday is yours!

 

HOLY NOISE

  Before PAUL ELSTAK would go on to become the single most important figure in the development of HARD DANCE culture, he was one third of a pioneering RAVE music group, called HOLY NOISE. Together, they released songs…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: PLAY THAT BEAT FROM THE EARLY DAYS OF DJING

It feels weird putting HIP HOP in the OLDIES category, but I guess we’re finally at that point in history. Here’s a tune that deserves way more credit than it gets.

G.L.O.B.E. & WHIZ KID – PLAY THAT BEAT MR. D.J.

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: WHAT HAPPENED TO NU NU???

Here’s an interesting case of “hey, what happened?”

LIDELL TOWNSELL – NU NU

 

You won’t often see this single included in any CLASSIC HOUSE compilations, despite the fact that it was a #1 HIT back in 1992. It’s possible that you recognize it from a movie soundtrack, or…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: WILL WE EVER SEE ANOTHER RAY CHARLES?

Image has become so vitally important in music. It’s not necessarily that today’s artists need to be pretty (although that helps immensely), but they do need to visually fit the musical style that they are representing. I doubt we’ll ever see another performer, like RAY CHARLES, rise to fame. That’s not the only thing that…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: OF JAM & OF SPOON

If you’re a EURO enthusiast, you probably know more than one tune that features a flamenco guitar riff. Well, here’s the song that did it first, and solidified it as a musical trend…

JAM & SPOON – RIGHT IN THE NIGHT

 

This power-house of a tune was…
