Looks like Lil Fame and Termanology will be dropping a collaborated project 11/6, Fizzyology. Today we’ve got the track “Too Tough For TV” to check out. So keep your eyes peeled for this project which will include such features as Busta Rhymes, Styles P, Bun B, Freeway, DJ Premier, Statik Selektah and more…
What an amazing sound these two have created… that’s Elliot and Natalie Bergman of Wild Belle whom I was referring to. You can hear quite the combination of genres mixed together in this one song. Seems like they’d be great to see live, and I can only imagine that everyone’s off their seats, dancing away… Keep an eye open for more good music from Wild Belle, since they just signed a 3-album contract with Columbia Records.

Taylor Gang’s Boaz is set to release his debut project Bases Loaded next week. For now, check out these two song of his; “Dreamin’” featuring Courtney (above) and “Deal With It” featuring Freeway (below). Support good hip-hop.
Tall Heights will be releasing a 5 song EP October 2, The Running of the Bulls. From the sounds of “I Don’t Know, I Don’t Know”, the first one released today, the project should be harmoniously bright, as Tim Harrington and Paul Wright, feed off of each other’s energy and produce this genuine sound. If you haven’t heard them before, make sure to watch this video of their small live performance… you’re going to love it!
After attending this year’s High Sierra Music Festival, I had met some folks (long time festival goers), who turned me on to what they referred to as “The best music festival of the year”, Hangtown Halloween. So you can imagine with little over a month away, and after just returning from Burning Man, I am overly excited to experience a weekend full of spectacular live music, dancing, and good people. This year Railroad Earth will be hosting the festival, while giving three performances throughout the weekend.
Besides looking forward to the entire festival blowing my mind, I can’t wait for a particular highlight, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and their tribute to the Beastie Boys… this should be quite the show!Tickets are still available, so grab them while you can (link below), check out the full lineup for 2012 and catch the video footage from last year’s Hangtown Halloween below. So grab a few costumes, your tent, and I’ll see you there!
