Which Bakermat Track Do You Like Better?

Which Bakermat Track Do You Like Better?

Dutch producer Bakermat arrived to DJ stardom a little differently than most. At 18, he went to college in the Netherlands to be a psychologist. In his spare time, he started to play around with his core music genres: house, jazz, and soul-- with little intention of becoming a full-time DJ. Well, his unique style of EDM caught on pretty quickly, especially in Germany and Austria, and the rest is history.

If you've never listened to Bakermat and you've made it this far in the blog post, we can't encourage you enough to listen to his 2 main tracks below. It might just be the most unique-sounding EDM you've heard in awhile. It's jazz and house music, beautifully blended together.

For fun, tell us which of the 2 tracks below you like the best. Comment on this post or on Facebook.

Few Songs Have More Bass Than This Zeds Dead Remix

Few Songs Have More Bass Than This Zeds Dead Remix

Even though their bass strips the paint off our walls, Canadian dubstep duo Zeds Dead are always welcome in Orlando. They're welcome for more than a couple reasons: they create great tracks, they manifest awesome parties, they give away a lot of music to their fans for free, and they tour relentlessly.

Another thing the guys are known for is their heavy bass, and there's one remix by Zeds Dead that a lot of fans forget about (but we didn't). We think this might be their most bass-heavy track in their now-expansive track list. What do you think?

Your Guide for The Scene II, Every Set Time for All 3 Stages

Your Guide for The Scene II, Every Set Time for All 3 Stages

Orlando might not be known as hip hop haven, but that might be changing soon. There is plenty of hip hop talent in central Florida, and it's growing. The Scene is a re-occurring event that showcases some of our area's best hip hop artists, and we're not just talking rappers-- it encompasses the whole culture. That includes, rappers, singers, hip hop bands, b-boys, b-girls, visual artists, designers, etc on 3 stages inside our venue.

Back in March, we hosted The Scene I (see photos here). Naturally, we had to do a Scene II because Orlando's got too much talent to fit into a single event. To help you navigate the party better, we provided all the set times for each stage. Share with your friends who are attending.

3 Wild Beats You’ll Hear On The Bro Safari

3 Wild Beats You’ll Hear On The Bro Safari

Atlanta trap DJ Bro Safari is making his anticipated return to Orlando on 7/23, and we're pumped. Every single time Bro comes into town, the party animals come out in full force.  The trick-- unlike traditional safaris that simply hope that the animals show up, Bro Safari uses audio bait.

These 3 tracks below are some of the DJ's best chum. Comment at the bottom of the post with your favorite BS tracks. Hope to see you at the show.

Imagine A World Where Animals Are Actually Leaders

Imagine A World Where Animals Are Actually Leaders

When we were brainstorming ideas for a blog post about the Between The Buried & Me / Animals As Leaders concert that's happening on Thursday night, we ran through a handful of ideas

A straight-forward post that showcases the bands' most popular songs (been there, done that)
An interview with one of the bands (could be cool, but waited too long)
The history of the bands (eh)
The best lyrics from the bands (one of the bands has NO lyrics)
Creating a world where animals where actually leaders (ding! ding! ding!)

Before we get ridiculous though, we want to make sure you know that we absolutely love both bands. They're heavy. They're melodic. They're well-crafted songs.

You're probably aware of Between The Buried And Me, but you might not be aware of Animals As Leaders. AAL is kind of like Between, but their songs are all instrumental. The cool part is, you don't really miss the lyrics. Listen to their brand of instrumental metalcore by going to their Spotify.

Now, enjoy our mini Photoshop art gallery of Animals Actually As Leaders...
