"Nightmare Carnival"

1173778_207729752723596_576361675_n There’s a splash being made this Halloween season by Buygore’s newest talented duo, Riggi & Piros. The first audio salvo of many to come is in the form of their inaugural original mix “Carousel.” Resisting the urge to assimilate the popular template of repetitive crescendos and beat drops, this track balances its elements properly and delivers the soundtrack for the carnival in my nightmares. Whatever reservations I may have had about “carneys” are now exponentially more intense, now that I imagine the Children of the Corn tearing my ticket to get on this ride. Enjoy.   https://www.facebook.com/riggiandpiros https://twitter.com/RiggiandPiros https://soundcloud.com/riggiandpiros

New Music Brings A New Dimension

There are few things in life that bring me as much joy as when someone introduces me to new music.  With so much new music being created daily, a little helpful nudge is always appreciated.  A buddy of mine recently asked me to take a look at a DJ by the name of Sharkoffs.  One google search and a few clicks later, I’m was asking myself how I went so long without knowing about this cat.  As I strolled through the available music selection, I realized that I was faced with the opportunity to go on a journey, a journey that I greeted happily. I rely on my physical response to the music, as well as the imagery the music is responsible for, to help shape my overall opinion.   As I meandered on my musical voyage, I relaxed and let my mind wander once again.  My adventure came to a close with the song combo of “Japanese Steel” and “Trying To Be Cool” (Sharkoffs Remix).  These songs displayed a varied style and tempo from one another, but when listened to as a tandem they complemented each other very well.  “Japanese Steel” had me preparing to go to war in a world, on the cusp of apocalypse.  As if designed by coincidence, I saw an 80s hair band, rooftop, serenading the masses with the ironic and relaxed soundtrack of buildings being toppled by bombs, while the chaos ensued, in Sharkoffs’ remix of “Trying To Be Cool.”  Although your journey with this music will not be the same, I assure you that you will enjoy the exposure nonetheless.

Let’s Get “Trap’d the F^!K OUT” by Donnie Bergeron aka “DJ Savej”

Trap’d the F^!K OUT” by Donnie Bergeron aka “DJ Savej”

“Trap’d the F^!K OUT”

In the world of ever-expanding musical genres, when I think “Trap,” flashes of “The Big Easy” are all that come to mind.  DJ Savej harnesses the powerful influences of this electro-hip hop fusion, effortlessly mixing old school jams with bangers from the new school.  Luniz, Biggie, Jigga, Kanye, and some of your favorite electro tracks are all utilized, while still maintaining an innovative “bounce” feel.  Not everyone can dance, and if you can’t this mix will still inspire you to own your “six inch shuffle” and bob your head with authority.  I was left feeling like I could spit woodgrain.

Beatwalker and Michael Medina -Terzetto

Beatwalker and Michael Medina -Terzetto

When I hear a new track, I try to clear my mind and give myself over to the music.   Before the first stage of rising action I notice that I’m already  moonwalking in figure-eights.  I imagine this as the soundtrack for Daft Punk-clad individuals in a Speed Racer-esque rally cross. In a little over six minutes, these gentlemen will take you on a voyage in your mind’s eye and even afford you the opportunity to calm down at the end.  Bring your helmet.
