Hippo Campus – “Little Grace”

We all know the importance of “tropical music” that is meant to be enjoyed on a tropical island, etc. But what about when your boat off the island sinks and you are stranded there and your mind slowly drifts away on kite made from coconut husks and sand crabs? What do you listen to then?? Hippo Campus will help bring you slowly back from your tropical hellscape with the click and clack of jangly rock sounds with just enough sun-tinged fun to not jar your delicate system.

When you have regained your composure get into their whole Bashful Creatures EP.  Read more

LETS DO A SUMMER MIXTAPE with [RAC, Adventure Club, Goldroom, Viceroy, DWNTWN, Ghost Beach, Cry Wolf and Lights & Music]

When I first started the blog feature on Lights & Music last month, this mixtape was the first idea that I put into action.  Wikipedia, in-short describes mixtapes as usually reflecting the musical tastes of its compiler, a conceptual mix of songs linked by a theme or mood tailored to the tape’s intended recipient.  Yeah sure, we’ve all made mixtapes before.  But, what happens when you get a bunch of artists and bloggers to make a mixtape with the intended recipient being you?  Thats what I wanted to find out.  The concept is simple, yet I hadn’t really seen it anywhere else.

Everyone was given two selections.  They could either choose two tracks defining their summer so far in 2012 or one new and one all-time summer favorite.  Sounds simple enough in theory, but narrowing down your favorite jams to fit that criteria was tough.  That said, this was a fun project and I intend on making this a annual event.

Without further ado, please enjoy and share with others. Read more

Dubstep Roundup Vol. 32 – 6.18.2012 [Adventure Club, Kill Paris, Ellie Goulding, Purity Ring, and more…]

Welcome To Dubstep Roundup Vol. 32

What up my TBE peeps?  Its been long overdue, I know.  The Reason: As some of you know I’ve been working on several other projects.  Mainly, Lights & Music Entertainment; a Music Blog / Concert & Event Production Series.   Does this mean I’m done with TBE?  Nope, but most of my time will be spent building content for my own blog.  Don’t worry, my Remix & Dubstep Roundups are alive and well over there.  In fact, they are about to be better than ever.

I truly hope you have your bowels in check for this shit, because its about to get Nurdy as all get-up.

Frankly, its not safe in here.

Adventure Club – Do I See Color (Dafusia Remix) “LME” favorites get the Dafusia treatment.  Have no clue who Dafusia is, but I dig the way he treats tracks…

Band Of Horses – The Funeral (Sound Remedy Remix) / This is one hell of a melodic dubstep tune.  Sound Remedy, a Lights & Music alum, was working with magic glow-sticks when he created this gem. Read more
