Relentless Beats brought the fire with Arizona's BIGGEST electronic and hip hop festival ever! With the biggest names in the game, fans came from all over for the best festival experience we've seen in a while. With unparalleled stage design, visuals, lights, and the perfect setup at Rawhide (no sound ordinances)... this was NOT the festival to miss.

Decadence Arizona 2017 is the New Year’s celebration that everyone should experience. The two-day festival will be held at none other than Chandler’s finest venue, Rawhide Event Center. Mark your calendars because December 30th and 31st it is going DOWN!

We've closed out another year here at KAMP Student Radio and over the last twelve months, we've jammed to a lot of music. 
Here are the best albums of the year as chosen by some of our beloved DJs. Did your favorite album make the list?

Artist: 
Devin Dawson
Label: 
Warner Bros.

Devin Dawson's single "All On Me" sounds like he tried to mix Ed Sheeran and Tim McGraw. This song is perfect for pop lovers and new age country. It has influences of old country but definitely has the fun, synthesized sound that new pop music has. This song is fantastic for people who are really into Ed Sheeran because of the sentimental and love filled lyrics. Good for radio and easy on the ears, Devin Dawson has a very calming and easy going voice. He easily sounds like a boy band sensation mixed with traditional Nashville sounds.

¡Hola! After kicking off 2017 with the release of “Cake” (then becoming the first American rapper to own a juice company) Flo Rida is back with a new single, teasing the release of his forthcoming, currently-untitled fifth album with “Hola”.

Iron Maiden
Label: 
Sanctuary Records Group LTD.

Put on your helmets and get ready to catch your heart when it bursts out of your chest for Iron Maiden's Book of Souls, the Live Chapter. With top picks from their worldwide Book of Souls tour, Iron Maiden pieced this album together, composed of their favored and most well-recieved tracks, to bring their sound in all its glory to the stage. This tour went from February of 2016 to July of 2017, more than a year of traveling to 39 countries worldwide, and the album is made up of the tracks that absolutely blew the audience as well as myself away.

The artist name at hand, Young RJ, presents itself to me in the weekly Wednesday meeting under a symbol I have definitely seen before, but in a different setting entirely. The Born Sinner album cover represented itself with a childish devil statue underneath an abstract form of a golden crown.

       "Black & White Sunshine": Catchy tune rythm and signing-wise.  Rythm sounds as blissful as 90s Alternative hits.

      "Dead in Water [Live]": suprisingly starts out very slow, dark and poetic sounding.  I say suprisingly, because I cannot name you one Oasis song that sounds like this track.  It starts in a special place all on its own.  It is just that uniquely bittersweet sounding to my ears.

Decent Criminal
Label: 
Dodgeball Records

Much like many other trends right now, the 90’s are back in music as well, and Alternative Rock is certainly no exception. I happen to be a big fan of 90’s alt rock and surf punk, which is how Decent Criminal was described, so I was pretty excited to give it a listen. Their album Bloom, in many ways, sounds like many other albums that claim to be inspired by 90’s rock, but also a little different – which I really appreciate.
