Minnesota native Taylor J finally unleashes as new visual from his acclaimed collab with super-producer Lex Luger, “The 91 Family.”
You may recall that Lex compared this project to Wiz’s “Cabin Fever” and Waka’s “Salute Me Or Shoot Me” and Taylor’s fans feel the same.
Of this latest offering Taylor shared his hometown pride with, “I wanted to show my roots on this one . It just make me feel like the Paul when I hear it . St. Paul is a gold mine in many ways and this year we gon show it.”
Scotland has been a hotbed for underground raves since the scene blew up in the UK since the 1980s. Commercialism of the culture and the more stringent laws drove the scene even further into the seedy illegal space it resides now.
Vice‘s i-D Channel decided to explore this thriving, nouveau-warehouse network in a new documentary as part of its Global Street Series, which covers the revitalization of youth cultures across the world. Interviewers meet up with several organizers and participant of these illegal renegade parties to uncover why they’re making such a comeback, and what drives these “misfits” that attend to keep coming back for more despite the risks.
This past weekend Jauz returned to his old stomping grounds of San Fransisco, CA for the second date in his highly-anticipated Off the Deep End tour, his first headlining tour since he broke out into the electronic dance music spotlight in 2014. This past weekend’s sold-out event was hosted at the legendary Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and was arguably the 23 year old producer’s biggest show to date. But before Jauz could reveal himself from behind a giant curtain, the night was kicked off with riveting sets by Goshfather, Ghastly, and Slushii and was topped off with live performances from popular Bay-area rappers, Too $hort and E40.
The Bay Area native spun an assortment of genres, seemingly catering to the different tastes and preferences of his hometown crowd. From gritty Dubstep, to old school hip-hop, to signature bass house and never-before-heard mash-ups, the massive crowd shook the venue’s walls in their excitement. Fan-favorite mashups included Blink 182’s ‘Down’ into Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Save the World,’ and Linkin Park’s ‘Numb’ into Jauz’s signature bass-house selections.
He even revealed some new unreleased tracks to the crowd including this ID — a high-energy bass house banger with a marimba lead and some ethnic tribal flare.
The tour will be making eleven more stops all across the country from now until March, including major cities like Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver, NYC, and Atlanta .
