So picture this, I get my hands on a remix of the recently posted (and under-appreciated) Cruiser by some guy Noah Hyde. I scope Noah’s Soundcloud and discover a treasure trove of epic remixes by all-time TBE faves like Cherub, Purity Ring, Two Door Cinema Club, and Youth Lagoon. It’s like the guy has his finger on my pulse!
When I first started the blog feature on Lights & Music last month, this mixtape was the first idea that I put into action. Â Wikipedia, in-short describes mixtapes as usually reflecting the musical tastes of its compiler, aÂ conceptualÂ mix of songs linked by a themeÂ or mood tailored to the tape’s intended recipient. Â Yeah sure, we’ve all made mixtapes before. Â But, what happens when you get a bunch of artists and bloggers to make a mixtape with the intended recipient being you? Â Thats what I wanted to find out. Â The concept is simple, yet I hadn’t really seen it anywhere else.
Everyone was given two selections. Â They could either choose two tracks defining their summer so far in 2012 or one new and one all-time summer favorite. Â Sounds simple enough in theory, but narrowing down your favorite jams to fit that criteria was tough. Â 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

I trading jams with a girl the other day when I asked if she knew Purity Ring she said she didn’t but that it was a horrible name for a band. She insisted it was. Fair enough on never hearing of them but that kind ofÂ disparagingÂ talk about these freak-groove masters just didn’t sit well with me. Sure, she was just uninformed. She didn’t know. But people need to know.

Lets not talk about the fact this year is already half over. Thats just insane. About as insane as the quality of jams that have been pumping through TBE HQ’s speakers these past 6 months. Here is the best of the best. Did I miss any? Did you miss any?

What up my TBE peeps? Â Its been long overdue, I know. Â The Reason: As some of you know I’ve been working on several other projects. Â Mainly, Lights & Music Entertainment;Â a Music Blog / Concert & Event Production Series. Â Â Does this mean I’m done with TBE? Â Nope, but most of my time will be spent building content for my own blog. Â Don’t worry, my Remix & Dubstep Roundups are alive and well over there. Â In fact, they are about to be better than ever.
I truly hope you have your bowelsÂ in check for this shit, because its about to get Nurdy as all get-up.
Frankly, its not safe in here.
For more jams or by any of these artists use the â€˜tagsâ€™ links at the bottom of the post!Â Â FollowÂ @Lights3MusicÂ on Twitter for updates on remixes, dubstep and all things Nurdy.
Why: Just cause all their songs are one word doesn’t mean that the music is simple (or even that the “word” is). It’s been over a year since Purity Ring whispered promises in our ear as “Ungirthed.”Â This is only the 3rd song since then to come out but it continues pushing the envelope of their sound. “Obedear” gets darker with it’s hip-hop borrowed plink beat and pulsating wall of moans. It pretty weird but I could also see it in a prepping for battle montage scene in a major action movie. It’s got that slow tension. Lets hope they release it all on July 24th.

One of a few post that I’ve been meaning to get up for awhile.Â Purity Ring seems to blow my mind every time.Â They appear (so far) to be everything I could ask for in a band.Â I will go as far to say they are on top of my list of up and coming bands to watch out for.Â Stay tuned, I certainly will.
