[Mash-Ups] Jay Z – 99 Problems vs Architecture In Helsinki + Queen + RHCP


Jay Z has 99 problems but being remixed and mash’ed by thousands of DJ’s is certainly not one of them. I have to admit the more I blog about music, the more I have disliked mash-ups. It seems like everyone these days just remixes Biggie, Jay Z and Lil Wayne over and over again. Am I becoming a mash-up douche/Hater? Do you guys like mash-ups and would like to see more on the site? Let me know by commenting bellow. Please!

Nonetheless I have to admit, I have had these 2 tracks on my playlist for a while now and out of all the mash-ups of 99 problems.. these are definitely worth listening to.

[Games] Dj Hero Sountrack


If you are a music fan, and by reading this you probably already are one, then you should be familiar with the plethora of musical/timing games, like Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Band Hero, and now DJ Hero just to name a few. To celebrate the release of Dj Hero we put together a small sample playlist of some of the best songs we found on the game’s soundtrack, to give you a taste of what you can expect. The game track list is mostly compromised of good quality mash-ups, combining two tracks to try to form a distinct experience for the player. Although these tracks were some of the best we found, we also noticed many mediocre ones that only seem to be enjoyable when you are playing the game but otherwise do not have much playback value.

The game is definitely worth checking out.

Kinetics & One Love – Electronic Meets Hip/Hop

It is always great when I see to different genre combine to make sweet sweet love. Kinetics and One Love are another great example to what happens when you combine electronic harmonies and synthesizers with hip/hop bass beats and witty lyricism.
Ever since they met in college, Kinetics, a battle rapper from Harlem, has been offering a distinctive compliment to One Love’s instrumentals, an eclectic reflection of Love’s background as a techno producer and drummer in an indie rock band.

Me Lucky Review: Young Dubliners – "Saints and Sinners"

Yes, I know we are past St. Patrick’s Day but that doesn’t matter as the Young Dubliners aren’t just known for being an Irish Rock band, they are well recognized for great dynamic songs and memorable live performances. In fact, it would not be fair to categorize them as an Irish rock band, three of the five members of Young Dubliners are actually American, and this very same ratio reflects in their music. Two scoops of red white and blue American rock, a third of bright green Irish rock, all served on a Celtic waffle cone is exactly what you will receive if you order a “Young Dubliners” at your nearest Cold Stones – and to drag this metaphor even further, their new album “Saints and Sinners” is just as colorful as they explore a range of musical styles in simply twelve songs.

The first track titled “Saint and Sinners” sets the album off to a rocky start, and not in the figurative sense. The up-beat electric guitar riffs accompanied by the background violin that often goes off on its own into tightly coordinated rhythmic progressions, makes this one of the fastest paced songs on the album along-side with “Rosie” and non-lyrical “Saoirse”. However, not all is fast and full of pop, there are great soothing songs like “In the End” and “Caroline” that keep the album acoustically grounded and let’s you experience the more mellow side of singer Keith Roberts‘s voice.

My favorite song would have to be the very harmonic “Backseat Driver” that balances very well between traditional Irish folk and modern pop/rock. And forgive me If I am being stereotypical but every time I hear this song it makes me want to hold a pint of beer and start singing it with my friends, it has that subtle Irish drinking song style every time the chorus plays…. eh maybe I am just an talking crazy.

saint-and-sinnersFor those who enjoy Celtic/Irish rock, you will definitely enjoy the Young Dubliners, and for those who doesn’t even have a clue about Celtic music, you should definitely give them a try.
