Lazers Never Die – Rave Review by Dan

maja laza
This EP is what MIA’s horrible new album should have sounded like. The opening track, Sound of Siren sounds like an anthem for our scandalous, thieving, decision-regretting generation. The EP keeps going with tracks like Good Enuff (Cash Flow Dub) and Bruk Out (Buraka Som Sistema Remix) that could keep the party chilled for hours – in the best of ways.

From The Mouth of Porn – Tribal Ravestep by Dan


Has anyone ever checked out Noise Porn?

You guys should. They’re a great music blog based out of Edinburgh. Enyway, they just wrote this awesome article about the ever-favorite-among-music-blogs Hostage and got some exclusive tracks from him. While describing the track, they used the term Tribal Ravestep to describe this new Kuduro-like tribal beat coming from Hostage, Jack Beats, Larry Tee, Foamo, Buraka Som Sistema (I know they consider themselves Kuduro, but lets be serious here) and so many others. Take a look:

‘Badman Sound’ is a funky little ravestep monster which is full of wobbly goodness and soaring buildups. The vocal samples are fantastic and really add to the whole tribal ravestep vibe that runs through this tune. The synths here are as always superb, ripping their way through the tune (3.34 for some of the coolest tweaking sounds).

It totally makes sense. From now on, FUCK Kuduro, embrace Tribal Ravestep. PS if you’re from America (like me), you probably think that everything meant for clubs is “techno.” Well, its not, so get over it. Dubstep is not a band, Drum n’ Bass is not dead, and Tribal Ravestep is what hipsters from Philadelphia, Lisbon, and apparently Edinburgh listen to.

Also, going with saintandre.ws’s fuck you attitude to anything legal, here is Noise Porn’s “exclusive” Hostage Track.
Disclaimer: We love Noise Porn, but come on guys, how long was that gonna stay “exclusive”? Two days? A week?

We all know and love Diplo, M.I.A.’s ex-hubby, DJ/Producer extraordinaire, and head of Mad Decent that has given rise to such artists as Major Lazer, DJ Sega, and Buraka Som Sistema. Well, now he got himself arrested in New Jersey.
