New music video : Reek Da Villian - MECHANICS (ft. Busta Rhymes & Swizz Beatz)

Reek Da Villian's new music video is now online. I love this old school touch. We have here Reek Da Villian, Busta Rhymes, and Swizz Beatz having fun in a garage. Xzibit should like the video.

It's good to find some original hip hop nowadays. This doesn't look like a Swizz Beatz instrumental. Some say RZA used this soul music song before with Method Man. Well it sounds like a beat sampled by RZA. Anyway you now know where to go you need to have your car repaired.

Monthly Music Series Helps Performers Get Into Music Business

On the third Tuesday of every month, Bay Area artists have the opportunity to perform in front of a panel of music industry professionals.

Beyond the Music Label is a monthly music series held at the Boom Boom Room in San Francisco. It aims to help Bay Area performers get exposure, connect with labels, learn more about the music business, and improve their craft.

Performers must first submit samples of their music to an advisory committee, which includes people from Epic Records, the William Morris Talent Agency, and the Jimi Hendrix Foundation. To be eligible, bands/artists must have at least 5000 fans on Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, or any other online music marketing site. Out of all the entries, the committee chooses three bands to perform. Each musical act performs three songs, and at the end of each set, performers receive feedback from a panel of judges. In addition, members of the audience can give their opinion by filling out ballots.

Idol Winner ‘Lives It Up’

This was a very important week for the newest Idol winner, Lee DeWyze. Crowned the Season Nine champ of the uber-popular Fox series American Idol back in May, DeWyze has been hard at work recording his debut album, released November 16th. An album release one day, Regis & Kelly and Ellen the next, DeWyze is on the fast track to fame.

With his rough-rocker, ready-for-radio voice and rugged good looks, DeWyze hold the potential for becoming a real star. Despite his formula for success, he remains humble and takes to Twitter (@LeeDeWyze) to thank fans everyday. He hasn’t forgotten those who voted him to where he is, a refreshing trait, especially in this day-in-age.

Sufjan Stevens Stuns at Beacon Theater

Sufjan Stevens' tour-ending show at the beautiful Beacon Theater was part dance party, part electro folk-rock tutorial. The incomparable Stevens is best known for his gorgeously crafted orchestral and spiritual folk songs; however his new album, The Age of Adz, finds the songwriter layering his carefully thought-out and ambitious humanist subject matter with new electronic beats and a funky bass line.

For his second show at the aristocratic and ornate old theater, Stevens balanced a few stripped down acoustic tracks with the bombastic epic electro anthems from Adz, surprising the crowd with his succession of splashy costumes—glittery wings, neon striped pants, silver lamé jackets and a glowing golden headdress. Plus our intellectual indie-rock hero even danced, sometimes choreographed with his three pretty little hipster backup dancers and sometimes randomly scuttling about the stage or snapping his arms out from his body, kind of like "the robot" mixed with "vogueing." The backdrop to all this was a visually stimulating video projection, incorporating artwork and previously recorded footage of Stevens and his dancers.
