LA Scene: Certified [Video]

LA Scene: Certified ft. R3LL, Vanessa Michaels, & Lil Texas

LA Scene: Certified ft. R3LL, Vanessa Michaels, & Lil Texas[/caption] Los Angeles has one of the most vibrant music scenes on Earth. On any given night there are countless venues and different parties going on throughout the city, and it's virtually impossible to find an event that didn't have a style or genre you were currently into. Los Angeles really has a very democratized electronic music scene in particular. There are tons of new artists and events coming through the scene; which makes the City of Angels, also The City of the Underground music scene.

A new Club music event called Certified has sprung out of Los Angeles to give Jersey Club a new forum in Los Angeles. Certified is the latest project by recent New Jersey Transplant, R3LL . The inaugural event was held at The Lash in Downtown Los Angeles; A hotspot for underground music and alternative nights that feature two dance rooms, two bars, and outdoor smoking area.

The night was filled with club music and Hip Hop curated by  upcoming acts in the Club/Bass music scene. The lineup featured acts such as Lil Texas, Vanessa Michaels, and R3LL. Vanessa Michaels dropped one of the most lit sets (In My Opinion) and elevated the party to a new level. The event was a successful night with sweaty bodies riding the wave of club music being played. We can only expect more from R3LL and the ARNTRE family.

Bernie Sanders, Diplo, and Electronic Politics [Video]

The Electronic music culture today has gone global and expanded to a huge audience; but Electronic music culture wasn't always that accepted by all. There was a point where House, Techno, and Electronic music was just for an underground and outcast group of people. The message in many classic House tracks is political and also pleasant to the ears. Electronic music often contained a message of gender, race, and sexual orientation equality. They contained messages of peace and social cooperation.

Today, Electronic music has lost a lot of it's soul and origins, but there are still fragments of those origins that made Electronic music so important to the Human culture. Diplo's project Major Lazer, contains motto's such as "Peace Is The Mission" and recently being one of the first major American music acts to play in Cuba.

We even see DJ's like Diplo and Aoki endorse Bernie Sanders by using their voice and influence for a positive view of their sentiments towards the political process. We don't often see DJ's show support for the political process or even state a message for political change anymore, but it does happen still.

Recently, Bernie Sanders released a new campaign ad showcasing the different and growing support for his presidential campaign and in the background you can hear Diplo's "Revolution" song.  We know through different campaigns that not getting permission from the artist to use the song in the campaign can lead to legal trouble. We saw this with MGMT and the former French president Sarkozy. The public displays of support on Bernie Sanders by Diplo gives us an idea that he probably was more than willing to allow his song on the Sanders campaign ad.

Electronic music isn't all just good times and fun. It's political, It's conscious, and It's universal. Messages that will grow as DJ's like Diplo, Aoki, & Zedd become increasingly active in using their influence for a positive political message,

Baauer - Kung Fu ft. Pusha T & Future

Baauer Just dropped his latest track featuring Pusha T and Future titled "Kung Fu" and its a heater indeed. The production is amazing and we seem heavy bass and complex percussions. We hear the key signatures Baauer has been placing in all his tracks, and the track itself is solid production.

Dragon Ball Z & Music

What your favorite DBZ character would listen to

This new segment features different Dragon Ball Z characters and we pair a track that reflects the characters storyline and personality. The inaugural segment we feature everything from Trap, Future Bass, Downtempo, Lofi, and much more. You can even take a quiz to find out which character is most like you if you don't have a favorite yet.

[Disclaimer: More characters will be added in future segments]

Goku: Goku is a sweet-natured, pure-hearted warrior with an almost child-like innocence. Throughout their battles, Goku never seems to change much, though he does gain a certain wiser perspective as he gets older. (Of course, he acts like a kid when he's around Vegeta. And Vegeta does the same.) With his heart as his guide, Goku is always willing to sacrifice everything for his friends and loved ones. He always manages to come out on top with the help of his friends. Goku is always celebrating and eating tons of of food with his friends and family when not battling. "Party Everyday" by 2DEEP shows the playful nature of Goku, but at an instance can get aggressive. At points the song sounds like Goku firing off Ki Blasts.

Piccolo: Piccolo is the offspring of Piccolo Diamau. Namekians are unisexual (no male or female, they're all just "one type") so Piccolo wasn't exactly 'born', but rather he was spit out and hatched. While his "father" was pure evil, Piccolo was actually a very prideful being who simply hated Goku for killing his predecessor. Because he was born to kill Goku, that was simply what he did. Piccolo ends up re-combining with Kami in order to become a 'super namekian' and reach a higher level of potential in his fighting strength. Piccolo is much reserved, but extremely proud and cautious.  The song "Baile De Favela" is like Piccolo with aggressive strength and pride for the people and places their from. This JSTJR remix is Piccolo combining with Kami and reaching its Super Namekian form.

Vegeta: He has an incredibly strong pride, and feels that since he is the one of pure blood, and he should be the most powerful in the universe and should be the only one capable of becoming a legendary super saiyan. He starts out as a villain, but ends up developing into the most complex character in the entire series. His father, his world, and all of his people were destroyed by Freezer - yet while knowing this, he still served under Freezer, and did his bidding. Vegeta becomes Goku's best friend and becomes a loving father to both Future Trunks, and small Trunks. Vegeta Loves his mamacita Bulma, and the track by GTA "Mamacita" is a good representation of the pride, confidence, and swag Vegeta contains within himself.

Bardock: Bardock is the father of Raditz and Kakarot (Goku). He is a low-class Saiyan warrior (with a estimated power level of 10000) who leads a team under the command of Frieza. Bardock has immense Saiyan pride and loves his family and friends. He knows that his son will avenge his people and takes immense pride on his death that revenge will be achieved. Seeing your death, past your life, and your sons success must be very strange and eerie, even for a Saiyan. Hex Cougar delivers a good representation of Bardock's powers and creates an aggressive but adventurous harmony similar to the personality of Bardock.

Gohan: Gohan is shy, strong, and a fierce Saiyan. He has a secret identity to fight crime and even trained with some of the greatest warriors the galaxy has ever seen. Gohan is a scholar and a gentleman and prefers diplomacy over fighting. He is strong, but quiet. More mellow and relaxed then his relatives and friends. "Bassship" delivers the perfect vibe of Gohan with bass and precise kicks. A smooth melody that gives the warmth of Gohan.
