There are many tracks out there that are hidden by the fat of less delicious tracks. As a part-time butcher of music discovery(and meat in real life), I will cut out the fat and show you the freshest cuts of meat (tracks) in this new segment we call “The Cut”. We will feature all kinds of cuts ranging from Bass, House, and downtempo vibes.
Steve Aoki collaborates with heavyweights DVBBS and 2Chainz on a massive festival ready track. Hard hitting Basslines and vocals from 2Chainz gives this track that extra agressiveness we all love in EDM.
Dirty Audio links with Jupe to give us this Trap tune with elements of Dubstep synths. Definitely a pump you up track.
Tuxedo is one of those disco vibe duo’s that features Mayer Hawthorne. This remix gives you those classic House vibes and is a must in any collection. Add this to your spotify playlist.
This track has elements of house music along with club rhythms and chopped vocal samples that make this song captivating on the dancefloor.
Damn, can Crookers do no wrong? This Crookers remix is the prime rib of meats right now. Techno and House vibes that even feature Phra’s chopped vocals.
Hahahahaha WOW, where do I even begin with this one?! The kind folks over at Fools Gold, released this colossal mashup of three titans in our music world. Whether you’re a fan or not, you can’t deny the power behind this track and the “mass-culture” that will draw to it. Four to the floor, lots of reverb, looping leads and risers that would give a Yogi an anxiety attack…mmmmm yup sounds about right. -Roane
“It’s giveaway time! We’re blessing you with a Power mashup from Steve Aoki & Garmiani with Kanye West’s ‘Power’ single. Press play then mash that download button! Trivia time… Can you guess the Garmiani track used and the Aoki track used?” -Fools Gold Records
This Labor Day weekend, the city of Los Angeles will host the inaugural Budweiser Made in America Festival. It will be a history making event by being the first American festival to be ran simultaneously on both the East and West coast, with Philadelphia hosting as well. Would you party for a good cause? If so then you will also be pleased with the fact that some of the proceeds will be used to benefit the United Way of a greater Los Angeles, not to mention the surge surrounding businesses will experience with the influx of people coming into the heart of LA to hear some great tunes by some very major artists. It is literally a win-win for everyone involved.
Now let’s get to the lineup, because we all know that a festival is only as good as the talent that is being showcased. “Budweiser’s Made in America” is the perfect nomenclature for this event because America is a melting pot of all cultures and backgrounds, and that is well represented by the eclectic lineup Budweiser has out together. No matter your preference of genre, you will undoubtedly be drawn to more than a few acts throughout the weekend that will suit your musical palette.
Representing for the Indie/Rock/Alternative genres we will be jamming out to Imagine Dragons, Metric, Capital Cities, MuteMath, and Dr. Dog on Saturday, followed the by the likes of John Mayer, Weezer, Rise Against, and Sublime with Rome, Terraplane Sun and Scavenger Hunt on Sunday. HUGE!
Holding it down for the EDM community we have sets from Tiesto, Gareth Emery, Classix, Cut Snake, Grandtheft, Borgore, and DVBBS kicking off the Saturday rager followed on Sunday with performances from Steve Aoki, Wolfgang Gartner, R3hab, 12th planet, YellowClaw and Will Sparks. EPIC!
Hip hop heads will also be most delighted to see LA’s very own TDE Crew, including Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock and Isaiah Rashad appearing on Saturday along with Hitboy and YG hitting the stage followed by Nipsey Hustle, Chance The Rapper, Cypress Hill and the never boring Kanye West calling off Sunday. Adding even more diversity (if you could imagine), Latin pop/rock artist Jaunes, neo-soul sensation SZA, as well as the soon to be queen of r&b, Miss Rita Ora also rocking out with us on Sunday.
Tell us which artist are you most excited to see this weekend at Budweiser Made in America?
With that being said, Busweiser’s Made in America Festival looks to be the premier ticket in LA this holiday weekend, star studded as we have become accustomed to in the city of Angels, so grab some buds, and come be American with us this weekend!
