Hot Off The Press: Keeping Up With Kanye

Now that midterms are a thing of the past, we can get back to what really matters (music of course). There have been a few note-worthy things happening in the music world that I’d like to touch upon before I lay out some sweet new tunes. Some of these include Miley‘s latest cry for attention and Kanye‘s anger issues. By now, you’ve already heard/seen Miley Cyrus lighting wh... »

Hot Off the Press: A Homecoming Playlist

Each year, thousands of Western alumni return to London to celebrate with old and new friends, take part in several planned festivities, and watch the good ol’ football game. If you’ve been around for as many years as I have, you know how seriously Western takes Homecoming. I mean, we’ve been able to party our hearts out for years and have done so with such class that we haven... »

Hot Off the Press: Gaga – Zedd Collabo

This week on Hot Off the Press, I’m going to avoid all Yeezus talk. Love me some Kanye, but he’s been hogging all of the spotlight this week, so it’s time to focus on other things that are happening in the music world (that, and I still haven’t had the time to fully listen to his album!) If you really need your Kanye fix, there’s a dance edit to “New Slaves̶... »

Merry Indie X-Mas: A Holiday Playlist

Whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Hanukah, or Kwanzaa – this is the time of year for family, friends, and elevated cortisol levels. With all the stress that accompanies last minute shopping in malls, too packed for their own good, it’s nice to get some time to relax by the fire with some festive music dancing through the air. Over Christmas dinner, my uncle said, “As I left Meaford, I turned o... »

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... »

Alphabet Soup: Lunice, under the moon.

For this week’s Alphabet Soup, I’ve decided add a few new ingredients. Now, I have seen an increased appreciation for sounds that aren’t usually considered “mainstream”. However, the last thing I appreciate, is the excessive need to seem less mainstream, and the whole hipster nonsense, but there is definitely a large amount of musical acts that are not yet receiving the praise that the... »

100 Ways to Save Hip-Hop

I just got notice that one of my more preferred music writers, Henry Adaso, just released an article chronicling the 100 ways to save hip-hop. I’d love to give thanks to PremierLife’s very own Julie Green for sharing this article with me, but I have my own reservations with what he wrote, as I have developed a sound set of my own beliefs with regards to the hip-hop industry that, accor... »
