After rising to fame off of the strength of his smash hits "Love Sosa" and "Don't Like" Chief Keef released his debut LP Finally Rich and rode the wave of his newfound celebrity to numerous singles and features, inlcuding an appearance on Kanye West's Yeezus. Ever since then, Chief Keef has been relatively quiet when it comes to music, as he continues to tease fans to the release of his next major project entitled Bang 3. "Beetle Juice" is another track designed to hold over fans until the release of t

The modern day auto-tune luminaries that are Future and Young Thug have come together tahnks to Metro Boomin, and have come with a song that has sounding as aggressive as you'll ever have heard them. You won't hear much of the auto-tuned yelps of Future, and the wails of Young Thug that sounds like they've come from some robot planet, "Chanel Vintage" has them yelling about buying vintage Chanel for themselves, for woman, and how much cooler they are than you.

In the words of Miley Cyrus, "We can't stop!" Just like she can't stop twerking on stage, while this EP is playing, you won't be able to stop twerking (guys included). There is hella trap in these tracks so it's just right for every rave and club that you're gonna here this in. You will literally lose control of your body when listening to these 4 songs and there isn't much more to say except that these songs BANG! The twerk genre in EDM is rising and rising quickly so look out for more of this stuff in the near future.

Here we go with the remix king himself, R3hab. He recently hit one million fans on Facebook so he decided to produce a free song to celebrate this accomplishment with his fans. R3hab is most known for his remixes of popular songs, the most recent of which being Express Yourself (R3hab and Diplo Remix) feat. Nicky Da B so it's refreshing to hear a song by him created by him. This club banger will get you out your seat with the repeated vocals of "pump the party" and you will definitely be sweating by the end when the trap beat kicks in.

This track rocks. It's upbeat, fun, and really pushes dancing and housey music while incorporating a little bit of dubstep. I like it a lot, recommended for harder-dubsteppy type shows. Beat sounds good. Has potential to get pretty big. Play this!!!!

How this album ended up in the World/Jazz music stacks, is beyond me. Legendary rock band Linkin Park, coming off of their mediocre effort entitled Living Things, decided to go down the Reanimation route with this album. The difference is, where Reanimation reimagined all the songs off of their debut Hybrid Theory, making for a unique listening experience that tided fans over while they awaited their next excellent record; this album is basically “Every song off of Living Things, but with DUBSTEP AND HOUSE!”

After not knowing or expecting what Alluxe had to offer and I was not disappointed. Overall throughout the album it has hints of trap with some Dub and all of course over lyrics. Very relaxing and something that you might play during a kickback. It is a very different album but has much to offer. If you are an EDM fan just check out this CD you might end up finding a hidden gem.
