Before we all get lost in Halloween, thought you guys might want to see the third piece to Porter’s documentary he’s putting together from his tour. It’s a light one that goes into his thought process behind his show and the music he’s been creating lately.

If you haven’t yet, New Year’s Eve @ Snowglobe is your last chance to catch Porter Robinson’s WORLDS Tour set in North America. I’ll say it again, it was incredible.

“Tony (Boombox Cartel Remix)” by LOUDPVCK & gLAdiator http://www.pumpthebeat.com/tony-boombox-cartel-remix/ http://www.pumpthebeat.com/tony-boombox-cartel-remix/#respond Thu, 30 Oct 2014 20:14:02 +0000 http://www.pumpthebeat.com/?p=18542 Tony Boombox

Tony” has gotten plenty of touch-ups, but this is a monster of a remix. Boombox Cartel comes through strong with this one. Residing in Los Angeles, Mexico-born artists Americo Garcia and Jorge Medina have built a name for themselves as a “must watch”, highly talented, up-and-coming duo. These guys have the Midas touch, and every song they touch becomes straight up gold. Keep your eyes on these guys, they’re going to be doing big things.

Is anybody else as excited as I am about Torro Torro’s HUGE new release? This tune is fuego. Torro Torro is always innovating new sounds; they’re very unique. I’ve been waiting on some new material like this from the Canadian duo, and it finally came. It’s up for free download, and you can’t beat free, so be sure to grab it if you like it. They also have a new song dropping on November 4th via Mad Decent titled “CA$HVILLE,” preview down below, as well as one of my favorite remixes from them.

Video: North Coast Music Festival 2014 Recap http://www.pumpthebeat.com/ncmf-2014-recap/ http://www.pumpthebeat.com/ncmf-2014-recap/#respond Thu, 30 Oct 2014 15:30:42 +0000 http://www.pumpthebeat.com/?p=18462

Also known as “Summers Last Stand”, North Coast Music Festival takes place in Chicago’s Union Park every year during Labor Day Weekend. This year was the festivals 5 year anniversary, and React Presents, the promoter behind NCMF and Spring Awakening, pulled out all the stops. NCMF expanded the festivals grounds and welcomed more “Coasties” than ever before. Saturday and Sunday were completely sold out, with over 58,000 people in attendance over the course of the weekend. The festival welcomed artists and fans from all over the world; North Coast prides itself in being one of Chicago’s most unique festivals, just take a look at that lineup.

If you’re looking for a festival that’s all about EDM, this isn’t the fest for you, but with names like Bassnectar, Dada Life, Showtek and Adventure Club, how could you not be satisfied? As far as hip-hop goes – Snoop Dogg. Enough said. You don’t see him performing much these days, so that was a very rare performance. They also brought out Talib Kweli, Riff Raff, Action Bronson, and Chicago’s very own Alex Wiley. The indie and jam bands, too many to name, but I think we get the point – there’s variety.

North Coast Music Festival was originally founded in 2010 by a group of independent promoters who set out to produce a festival for all the underserved genres in the city. Between them, they brought together emerging artists from hip-hop, indie, jam bands, and dance music. Fast forward to today – nothings changed. It’s good to see companies like React sticking to their ways.

As far as putting together a killer lineup goes, React has been on top of their game and as a regular attendee of their shows, they do not disappoint. If you’re visiting Chicago soon, make sure to catch one of their shows while you’re there.

PS: I got chills when I watched this video. It was a “you had to be there” kinda thing. Don’t feel bad though, there’s always next year. If you don’t wanna miss out, follow them for all their updates.

Video: DJ Craze sends a message with NEW SLAVES ROUTINE #RealDJing http://www.pumpthebeat.com/video-dj-craze-sends-a-message-with-his-new-routine-w-new-slaves/ http://www.pumpthebeat.com/video-dj-craze-sends-a-message-with-his-new-routine-w-new-slaves/#respond Thu, 30 Oct 2014 06:35:07 +0000 http://www.pumpthebeat.com/?p=18460

DJ Craze really cleared the air with this video. ‘DJ’ is a seriously abused term today. Real disc-jockeys are actually really rare and DJ Craze is a dying breed. I got to see him at Ultra in 2013 and he was unreal. This video proves that what most of you are paying money for is somewhat of a rip-off. I think it makes more sense to call them ‘producers’. Well done Craze.

Catch him on Halloween at Pier of Fear x BOO! in NYC. Should be insane and I’m sure he’ll put on for the blood thirsty crowd. See you there! #RealDJing

“Thats like the B-boy in me too. The reason I was good at battling and shit was because of this.When I get pissed off, I want to speak with the turntables and kill it.” – Craze
