    The Techno Club that's Taking over New Orleans

    That Broken Heart

    That Broken Heart

    Language is always a barrier, I learned this from a young age. My parents couldn't communicate first is was a language issue, then fighting. Trust me they did that a lot. I ignored it as best I could but, you can only do that for so long. My family wasn't traditional, and we tried for happy.

    Flip, Reverse It: The Power of the Remix

    Flip, Reverse It: The Power of the Remix

    As the eponymous and everlasting Missy Misdeameanor Elliott once said: "Put my thang down, flip it and reverse it," and then something that always sounded like: "It's your-thingy-fema-thang-wip, it's your-thingy-fema-thang-wep," and we all went, "Yeah, ok," because it was very cool, and we sang it in a kind of I-Don't-Know-What-I'm-Saying-But-This-Is-On-At-The-Club-So-Lets-Get-It kind of way.

    Why Lo-Fi Music Is So Popular

    Why Lo-Fi Music Is So Popular

    I'm sure when you open up YouTube's homepage, you see a little red "live" marker and an anime thumbnail. Often labeled as "chill beats to study to" or something of that effect. Lo-fi hip-hop instrumentals and other chill-beat styles of music have been all over the place. These playlists and compilations have millions of regular listeners and the artists are becoming just as popular. Heck, the YouTube channel, ChilledCow only posts other people’s music (they haven’t produced any original content) and have over 2 million subscribers as of January 2019. So why are lo-fi/chill-beat tracks so present in the current pop culture?

    11 Deep House DJs You Need to Know

    11 Deep House DJs You Need to Know

    Aa a sub-genre of house music, deep house fuses elements of Chicago house music with jazzy elements and touches of soul music. Larry Heard is credited with being one of the genre's early adopters; he made deep house deep. From the abandoned factories of Chicago in the 80s and 90s, the torch of deep house has been passed on to a bourgeoning deep house scene in Europe. It's no wonder that the emotive house music created in the United States has quickly proliferated into one of the most popular genres in Europe. Record labels like Toy Tonics and Heist Recordings are helping young creatives release top quality content. From the men who invented the genre to well-established names on the European touring scene (and some tropical deep house music mixes for those summer vibes), here are the top eleven deep house DJs you need to know more about.

    What is Lo-Fi Hip Hop?

    What is Lo-Fi Hip Hop?

    An astute purveyor of culture would notice that irony is hot right now. People feel important by standing out and being unique, one way to do that at the moment is by banality, irony, and nostalgia. It has spread like an airborne plague to all forms of creative culture—fashion, tv, and music. Demna Gvasalia, creative director of Balenciaga and head designer of Vetements, shocked the world with a $2,000 Ikea bag and a $200 DHL shirt. Stranger Things released in 2016 and amazed audiences all over the United States with its pronounced resemblance of the 80s. Want to hear distortions and environmental interference in your music? Great, because there are a plethora of destinations to hear live steams or long mixes of lo-fi hip hop. Confused as to why people want to listen to washed out and muffled reproductions of hip hop beats, read further to understand the question, "What is lo-fi hip hop?"

    How House Music Changed My Life

    How House Music Changed My Life

    Towards the beginning of my senior year of my undergraduate studies, I began to experience major anxiety. I often found myself consistently comparing myself to others, lacking confidence, and never truly enjoying moments I know I should be enjoying. I was always hesitant to talk to someone about my anxiety, in fear of being judged, or that my peers would think I could not handle tough situations. On one weekday, my close friends invited me to go to a house music club in Huntington Beach. At this time, all I knew about house music was that it was a form of electronic dance music. What I didn't know is how spiritual, uplifting, and life changing house music turned out to be for me. I am here to tell you what house music means to me..
