Hot New Music: Matthew Dear – Headcage EP – Review

  If 2011 was the year that dubstep went mainstream, then 2012 just might be the year that old school DJs/dance music moguls begin grabbing the brass ring—or in many cases a mic—and just going for it!

Hot New Music: Gary Go – Now Was Once The Future — Album Review

  I don’t know about you, but I’m in LOVE with Benny Benassi’s “Cinema” track (both the original and Skrillex’s bass-filled remix). Its vocals are amazing and its romantic theme just melts my heart.

Hot New Music: Fuel Box “I” — Album Review

Wow, who ever thought the Netherlands have such authentic soulful vibes?
