Remembering That Strange Moment When Korn Were Pop Superstars

This post was originally published on this site

KornAt first, Korn were a myth to me. When they released their self-titled debut album in 1994, I was 11. I may have glimpsed their spooky dreadlocked scowls in magazines or TV ads, or wherever I found out about new music in that nascent internet era. But for a suburban Christian kid who spent his … More »

Denzel Curry, Traveling At The Speed Of Thought

Denzel-CurryThere’s a moment on “Percs,” the stunningly venomous fast-rap tirade that Miami rapper Denzel Curry released earlier this summer, where Curry lets loose on the mumble-rap hordes: “These dumbass niggas, and they don’t say shit / Sound like ‘durr durr durr,’ you like, ‘Oh, that’s lit.’” Curry is hardly the first rapper to call out … More »

Juicy J, Lil Pump, and Famous Dex release take two of Diplo’s ‘Welcome To The Party’Welcome To The Party Remi 1

Diplo had speakers blazing in May when he released what would come to be known as Deadpool 2’s unofficial theme song — “Welcome To The Party.” The original track, included in the motion picture’s soundtrack, featured the rap stylings of French Montana and Lil Pump, as well as some background harmonizing from teenage vocalist, Zhavia, known from her appearance on The Four.

A few weeks later, Diplo has followed up on the gargantuan release with a remix from the likes of hip-hop heavy hitter, Juicy J, Famous Dex, and original contributor circling back for another go, Lil Pump. Reviving the same larger-than-life trap beat, the remix uses the three new verses to bring a similarly irreverent and rowdy fervor to the track, extending “Welcome To The Party’s” shelf-life well into the summer months.

As if getting a whole remix package for Diplo‘s California EP wasn’t enough to win over fans, he now decides to put the cherry on top by dropping yet another remix from Valentino Khan for his track, “Welcome to the Party.”

The original, which was featured on the Deadpool 2 soundtrack, featured trap horns and aggressive percussion that sat ever-so-perfectly behind the toplines by French Montana and Lil Pump. Valentino then adds a whole new personality to it as he incorporates intense saw bass and a punchy snare, along with unique sounds in the drop to take an already energetic song and turn it into a heater.

Matthews performed excerpts from Migos’ “Stir Fry,” Lil Pump’s “Gucci Gang,” and Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” accompanied by his acoustic guitar. He doesn’t sound half bad but Fallon is just plain … More »

Crankdat spins some fresh IDs in new Diplo and Friends mix

Christian Smith, a.k.a. Crankdat became a breakout star through remixes for Zeds Dead, Jaden Smith, San Holo, and more. In addition, he’s added some equally successful originals to the portfolio, with his most recent being “Need Somebody.” Now, it seems this positive traction has caught Diplo‘s attention, as the rising producer has officially made his debut on BBC Radio 1’s Diplo & Friends.

Fans are in for a big treat here, as the bass-heavy mix features a wide array of fresh IDs from the Cleveland born DJ. He also blends famed remixes with throwbacks, hip-hop — including tracks by Kanye West and Lil Pump — and dance music anthems such as Galantis‘ “Runaway” and Calvin Harris‘ “Summer” (mashed up with some trap-y goodness). The hour long mix is ever-changing and will make listeners wonder where the time went.

Crankdat is currently on his “Outcast” tour, hitting stops all over the globe leading up to an Electric Zoo 2018 performance come Labor Day Weekend.
