Download While You Can: All The Booooooom Mixes

At some point during the summer Soundcloud decided to remove most of my mixes from their site (I’ve since removed the rest). It’s a bummer because I wasn’t trying to make any money off of the music, I was just doing it for the fun of sharing something with you guys!

A few people noticed the mixes disappeared and tweeted about getting the mp3s so I’ve made a zip of pretty much all the mixes that you can download here.

Just a heads up, the last two are more rappy and have a lot of bad language.

I mix the music using Ableton which is pretty much cheating but it’s really fun. I might make a new one and share it through a service like Mixcloud. In the meantime grab those mixes; I don’t know how long I’ll keep them up, and probably won’t share them ever again.

Ones to Watch: An Interview with Atlanta-based Adam Alexander aka Demo Taped

Adam Alexander is one to watch. The 17-year-old Atlanta native is making music under the name Demo Taped, and while he’s no household name yet, people are starting to take notice. The first single off of his debut EP,  “I Luv U” is the definition of feel good music and has been stuck in my head all summer long.

New York Rapper Secretly Records Entire Album Using Apple Store Computers

princeharveyHarvey1

There are a lot of struggling artist stories but this one might take the cake. After numerous setbacks (broken computer, stolen hard drive), Prince Harvey recorded his entire album using nothing but his own voice and a display computer at an Apple Store in Soho! Even after befriending a couple of the employees, and using some ingenuity to actually save his work at the store (hiding files in the trash to save them from nightly memory wipes), it still took months to finish.

The album entitled PHATASS, set to release July 26th, is an acronym for Prince Harvey At The Apple Store: Shoho. Check out the result of Prince Harvey’s four-month labour of pure determination below.
