In Pharrell We Trust

In Pharrell We Trust

With even Barack Obama singing “Get Lucky”, I think it is safe to say that Pharrell Williams is back. But was he ever really gone? While Williams may not be making as much music as he did throughout the early 2000s, where it seemed anything and everything remotely catchy was at least co-written or co-produced by Williams or The Neptunes. Williams to this day, is a major part of countle... »

A Tongue-In-Chic Peek Into Paris & The Parisienne Woman

A Tongue-In-Chic Peek Into Paris & The Parisienne Woman

“Everything about them—their poise, their refinement, their cool dispatch, their trim, tidy figures, their yachty scarves, their precision manners, their purposeful glances, their insinuating silences, their hair, their skin, their scent, the invisible caress of their lingerie…inspires marvel and envy.” – James Wolcott, “Liberté, Fraternité, Supériorite”, Vanity... »

Footwork Fridays @ JBRs 02.22.13

While some were still nurturing their Cancun hangovers, which will last until exams, others were able to come out and play back home, I mean, at JBRs. Sorry, I get the two confused. Take a look at these photos from Friday, February 22nd! Back bar was just as icey as Talbot Street so if you missed it, make sure to come out next week. Well, if you think you can keep up.

Five Music Groups That Should Get Back Together

Five Music Groups That Should Get Back Together

I present to you my list of music groups that should get back together. Yes, I realize they probably broke up for some “important” reason or another, but come on, do you really expect me, as the fan, to take creative differences as a legitimate excuse for why you’re not producing anymore music? I didn’t think so. While my prayers have been answered and Destiny’s Child... »

Alphabet Soup: The Grimiest of RL Grime

Alphabet Soup: The Grimiest of RL Grime

Back when I decided to cover trap music for the letter “T”, I was most influenced by the sounds coming from RL Grime. Since then, I’ve been anticipating this letter of the alphabet. This week’s Alphabet Soup of the day will be a nice big bowl of RL Grime a.k.a. Henry Steinway a.k.a. Clockwork. Henry Steinway has adopted a couple of personas in the DJ realm, but the focus of today’s Alp... »

No Beef? Lupe Fiasco Says Au Revoir to Hip-Hop

No Beef? Lupe Fiasco Says Au Revoir to Hip-Hop

Turns out even famous rappers can’t handle the heat from the tweets. Lupe Fiasco is calling it quits after negative remarks were made by fellow rapper Chief Keef regarding his latest track “Bad Bitch”. Keef began the “beef” with this tweet: Where Lupe took to twitter to respond: The song itself is one that suggests that other rappers refrain from using such derogatory language when referencing fem... »

It’s a trap world, after all.

It’s a trap world, after all.

For months I’ve been listening to similar sounds on my iPod as well as at shows and I couldn’t quite put my finger on the classification of the music. It wasn’t moombahton, it wasn’t house, it wasn’t dubstep (or any of its sub-genres). It was something different altogether. If you’ve been to any music festivals that have been taking place over the summer, you’ve probably been listening to the same... »
