The Summer of EDM Festivals

0

First of all, I know I’m a horrible blogger for barely posting anything in the past month. But what can I say? I was super busy from hearing all these crazy festivals hitting Toronto this summer! I hope my readers will be stopping by to this beautiful (and crazy) city to check out the numerous concerts that are brought to you by fellow music promoters.

Within just one month, four major new festivals were announced through social networks with some of the biggest international DJ’s and Producers headlining it. Toronto is used to having to accommodate weekly EDM events throughout the city, but having a two day, 12 hour festival featuring various genres of the EDM community? Never. That’s why I’m more excited than ever to be living in Toronto this summer to experience all four hometown shows, I hope all of you have the same opportunity as well.

To celebrate these announcements and welcoming, as well as promoting international to local DJ’s, I have compiled a list of mix tapes of DJ’s that will be hitting Toronto this summer. Because believe it or not, this summer will be all about the EDM Festivals.

Which one are you most excited for? Tweet at us through @_RoomNoise or Like us on Facebook.

New Music: Korean Pop Hitting the U.S. Top 40′s

0

 

As a blogger, I never really write about the music from my culture or even any others to be quite honest. I decided to do something different with this topic and showcase the upcoming international acts that have already collaborated with American electronic producers. I do love writing about the latest musicians from the US, UK and Canadian market, but how often do you see or read popular online music blogs who showcase the same genre, but in a different language? Sure, you and I might not understand what they’re singing, but you can’t say no to a good/catchy background beat…

During one of my late nights of researching and reviewing music, I stumbled across a Korean boy band by the name of Super Junior. And let me say… I was surprised that there 13 members in one band. 10?! You can make up to 2-3 bands with that size, but in the South Korean market, that’s how they like to do it. While listening to their track and checking out other labels in South Korea.. I came across 2NE1. If I were to put Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Beyonce and J-Lo, this would be the equivalent of that. These girls are huge… so popular that just last year Will.i.Am invited the group over to his studio to produce an album.

Although this isn’t the first time we’re seeing Korean musicians in the North American music charts (BoA, Wonder Girls), it’s only a matter of time that we’re going to see this become even more popular. Going back to 2NE1, I was really surprised at their sound and in a way.. their originality (in a Korean music stand point). Just last month, the group won MTV Iggy’s Best New Band in the World, gaining even more recognition with the North American market and from producers such as Diplo. In the video above, was an interview conducted earlier this week at MTV Headquarters in NYC. The girls had the chance to perform at a live event for the first time with the network, bringing even more attention to their upcoming full-length English album produced by Will.i.Am, which is set to be released in early 2012.

Personally, by just listening to only three tracks so far by these girls.. I’m already addicted to their stuff. Even Diplo had a couple of good words about 2NE1, mentioning that “they’re crazy live…and they already have a head start”. I hope this short post will give you an idea on what’s about to happen in the new year with international musicians. And that there’s more to the Top 40 charts, right now we see more and more Canadian acts in the American market, but will we soon get acts from Asia? We’ll just have to wait and see.


2NE1 – I’m the Best


2NE1 – Can’t Nobody (English Version)

May Music Video Recap

0

Instead of posting actual music videos, I thought I would share some music-related videos that premiered over the month of April. Throughout April, the Beastie Boys released their 30 minute movie featuring a list of well-known celebrity cameos to promote their latest album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two which will be released on May 3rd. Then the surprising trailer of Revenge of the Synth that will be the sequel to The Electro Wars. And recently, Nardwuar interviewed Lil Wayne in Vancouver, that is a must watch.

MixTape Wednesdays: LAZRtag

I have always been a huge fan of the duo DJs LAZRtag, I had to feature them this week when I found out that they had released an amazing mix tape six months ago on their SoundCloud page. These guys are from Los Angeles, California dealing with various record labels, and also keeping their style fresh and new by remixing music from not just one genre. The benefits from featuring a mix tape and listening to them is to hear various new tracks that you haven’t discovered before. So I hope everyone enjoys this week’s mixt tape by LAZRtag.
