Moon Boots

Moon Boots is another underground producer that usually sets the internet a blaze with his colorful and smooth electronic tracks. His remixes to songs are what Travis Barker’s are to Hip Hop songs, he doesn’t change them, just enhances them.. Moon Boots tends to produce music that is easy to digest, meaning you can listen to it driving in a car or at club and dance the night away. He finds a way to remix songs and make you love them even more, example – Little Boots, Janet Jackson, CHVRCHES, or Allison Valentine to name a few. One listen to his music and you will find yourself wanting more.

Bit Funk

Bit Funk is one of my favorite underground EDM artist. He usually has wonderful melodic tunes that are easy to love but highly complex. Hailing in from Brooklyn NY, his music is not to be slept on, it’s almost fair to say he’s one of the best in the underground circuit. Here’s a couple of tracks, he will be performing February 22, 2014 at the Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn NY for just $12.  I’m sure the show will be a lot of fun and will be a chance to dance to some sweet music. If you can, don’t miss out.

Earthbound goes Snowbound

Who remembers Super Nintendo’s 1995 cult video game Earthbound? If you don’t, its ok, just take notice that its where Super Smash Brother’s character, Ness is from. Anyway, the music from the game is epic, so epic in fact that a remix was made for one of the most memorable levels-Snowman.

Marvel’s Mandarin One-Shot with Ben Kingsley (All Hail the King)

On February 25, Thor 2 will be out on Blu/DVD and with that we all will treated to the Mandarin’s one shot. Hopefully this will somewhat redeem the mess that is Iron Man 3. The one shot will feature Ben Kingsley’s Trevor Slattery, the lush actor that made a mockery of Mandarin. The one shot takes place in the fictional prison Seagate, and will be interviewing Slattery about his “arrangement” with the “real” Mandarin. This one shot will be Marvel’s longest with a whopping 14 minutes. Hopefully Marvel will make up to Iron Man fans after the loop thrown in Iron Man 3. Entertainment Weekly has the video here.

His name ..DOOM!!!

He wears a mask like Yo! on the Gong Show

MF+DOOM+PNG

MF DOOM, DOOM, Madvillian, JJ DOOM, Viktor Vaughn, Metal Fingers, Zev Love X, King Geedorah is a hip hop rapper/ “super producer” from  Long Island, New York.  He began his career in 1991 with the rap group KMD and appearing at multiple open mic sessions with a stocking cap over his face obscuring is facial features.  Soon after, he took on the persona MF DOOM after Marvel comic books villain Doctor Doom and since then is rarely seen with out it. Either it be a media appearance, concert tour, or a picture with a fan, he wears his metal mask. In 1993 his older brother was struck by a car and killed on Nassau Expressway while crossing it and for a period of time DOOM left the hip hop scene. In 1997, he came back with vengeance stating that he was swearing revenge “against the industry that so badly deformed him”.  His strange appearance also reflects his music. Usually his music is chock full of unconventional hip hop beats, and a rhyme approach that is very hard to label. It’s almost like he rhymes in patterns or in a off beat manner that somehow magically compliments his production. DOOM is truly one of a kind and is not for the faint of heart or those that label themselves as “normal“. Not only does he talk about issues people typically ignore in rap music such as, stereotypes and male chauvinism, he mocks it. He is a reflection of how weird people can be sometimes .   He represents being an outcast, he lives in the underbelly of all things strange and he’s hear for you to listen.
