Crowd Control Tour Starts Strong in NYC


Last Sunday, Donnis, Izza Kizza, 88 Keys and Kidz in the Hall kicked off the Crowd Control Tour with an explosive show at Highline Ballroom. Each artist delivered an engaging high-energy performance that kept the crowd going from start to finish. The camaraderie between the artists was clear – Izza Kizza popped in for a song during 88 Keys’ set, and Donnis joined Kidz in the Hall as they brought the show to a close. Other guest appearances included Spree Wilson, The Kid Daytona and Choc Mic, who helped Izza Kizza deliver a spirited performance.

SXSW Announces Initial Line-Up


sxsw09

After taking on CMJ, The Electric Zoo, Street Scene, All Points West, and the Winter Music Conference in 2009, it seems only natural to add South by Southwest to our growing itinerary for 2010.

Last year, the festival drew 12,000 participants and showcased nearly 2,000 musical acts on 88 stages. The 2009 line-up included AC Slater, Amanda Blank, Buraka Som Sistema, Deadmau5, The Golden Filter, Grizzly Bear, Ben Harper & Relentless7, Jack Beats, MSTRKRFT and The Twelves, among others.

Now in its 24th year, the annual SXSW Music Conference and Festival will be held in Austin from March 17-21. The initial line-up of 450+ artists is likely to quadruple by March, and already includes Treasure Fingers, Kidz in the Hall, HEARTSREVOLUTION, Team Facelift, Adam Tensta and The Postelles. Chauffeur is also rumored to make a rare appearance at the festival, but is yet to be confirmed.

Music badges cost $675 if you register by January 12, and will allow you to participate in all of the official SXSW music parties, panels, and courses. Click here for a full list of badge levels, rates and details about the programs that the badges include. While the price tag might seem a little steep, it includes five full days of music with nearly 2,000 acts (which, if you do the math, breaks down to less than five cents per artist).

Don’t forget, the Winter Music Conference kicks off the following week in Miami (March 23-27), so plan accordingly. But more on that later…

Wild Young Heartbreaks: Mick Boogie and Terry Urban Fuse The Noisettes with Kanye West


Mixtape impresarios Mick Boogie and Terry Urban are back with their latest project, this time crossing The Noisettes with Kanye West to create Wild Young Heartbreaks. Kanye’s notorious auto-tune album couldn’t be more different from The Noisettes’ lead singer Shingai’s definitively classic vocals, but they somehow make for a harmonious combination.

Many of the artists and producers who worked on Re-Living Thing, including 6th Sense, nVMe, Apple Juice Kid and Christian Rich, were happy to contribute to the new project. Double-0 from Kidz in the Hall also put his touch on the mixtape with the track “Cheap Cops” (The Noisettes’ “Cheap Kicks” with Kanye West’s “Robocop”).

Download Wild Young Heartbreaks here, and check back soon for info about the mixtape release event.

Sneak Peak: Kidz in the Hall “Jukebox” Video Shoot


naledge-jukebox-hificartel

Last week, we stopped by the Double Down Saloon to watch Kidz in the Hall shoot the music video for “Jukebox”, the first single off their upcoming album, Land of Make Believe.

In the scene, Naledge was getting his game on, quickly moving from girl to girl, while Double-O playfully snapped pictures. The bar created a dynamic backdrop for the video with colorful murals painted on the walls, and the decked-out extras contributied to the glam-grunge atmosphere.

“Jukebox” is co-directed by BBGUN’s Alex Bergman and Max Bohichik, who also helmed Kid Cudi’s breakthrough video, “Day ‘N’ Night”. Click here for a free download of Jukebox, and be on the lookout for Kidz in the Hall when they take the stage during CMJ in October.

Mick Brings the Boogie to the Beat


IMG_012

Last Tuesday Mick Boogie rocked the (Green)house for the LP Release Party of Re-Living Thing, his remix project with Peter Bjorn & John. Several artists that contributed to the album came by to show their support and celebrate the project. Bjorn Yttling, 6th Sense, Outasight, 88 Keys, The Kid Daytona, Double-O from Kidz in the Hall, and Vito from nVMe were just some of the artists and producers that were in attendance.

Mick Boogie, joined by Bjorn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John, took over the decks at around 1 AM. Bjorn’s electro set was not only refreshing, but also innovative – he used a “Pacemaker” in lieu of a mixer. Mick Boogie’s set started off strong, with a live performance of “4 Out of 5” by 88 Keys, Outasight, and 6th Sense, who also remixed the track. Mick Boogie spun a healthy amount of hip-hop, and threw in several tracks from Re-Living Thing, including “Stay This Way” and “Lay it Down”. At around 3 AM, The Kid Daytona hopped on the mic for an impromptu performance of “I’m Losing My Mind”.

Special thanks to Ciroc Vodka for fueling the revelry. Be sure to check out Oliver Correa’s photos from the night, and if you haven’t already, click here to download Re-Living Thing.
