Wild Belle- “It’s Too Late”

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.

All Aboard the S.S. Coachella- Lineup Announced

Yes, you read it correctly, there will in fact be a Coachella at Sea. Two cruises are scheduled to sail across the ocean with a lineup of bands/DJs to accompany this voyage, one to The Bahamas (3 days), and the other to Jamaica (4 days). With an eclectic lineup that all will enjoy, this is due to be one of the most epic concerts known to man. Some people say “cruises aren’t for them”, or “cruises are so boring”, well if you can afford this party of all parties, I would reconsider these assumptions, because this could and may be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Yes, I believe (unless this becomes an annual event), that seeing such an amazing concert out on the open ocean would be a once in a lifetime experience. They’ve got Girl Talk, Sleigh Bells, Hot Chip, and James Murphy, as well as El-P and Killer Mike, who just released R.A.P. Music (Killer Mike‘s new album, produced by El-P), one of the best albums this year… so you know you’re in for a treat once the S.S. Coachella sets sail… and my guess, but since you will be on a boat, you’re bound to see some of the artists in person, because they don’t have anywhere else to go before and after they play their set… just sayin’. See above poster for more artists that will be on the ship, and keep an eye out for more surprises to be added to the lineup in the near future.
S.S. Coachella Dates:
December 16-19
December 19-23

Catch 2 Chainz interviewed by Karen Civil on KarmaLoop TV

Things have gone crazy-good for 2 Chains (features, appearances, tours, etc.), since this past year at SXSW. Probably one of the dopest artists in the game right now, and with his upcoming album release, Based on a T.R.U. Story– available August 14 (the most anticipated album of summer 2012), 2 Chainz sat down with Karen Civil (who I had the honor of meeting this past SXSW at “From the blocks to blogs” panel), on KarmaLoop Tv to discuss a handful of topics. Enjoy the video and the humbleness you experience from 2 Chainz, as he takes a break from the Club Paradise Tour.
