Interview with DJ Freaky Flow; Playing in #PHILLY tonight 8/23! @djfreakyflow #DNB #EDM

As a freshman in college, I was introduced me to Drum and Bass by way of DJ Freaky Flow, a Toronto scratch-master, floor-shaker, and all-around brilliant track selector. His intro tape (long before tapes were again fashionable and in vogue) quite literally changed the way I listened to music, and it wasn’t long before I […]

Interview with Justin Dehel from Philly’s GOOD GRACES urging you to “Get confident, stupid.” @stereokiller

Philadelphia punk rock upstarts Good Graces are a very young group just beginning to cut their teeth in the sadomasochistic world of music. Everyone starts at the beginning, but some groups just have a bit more going for them out of the gate than the others.

Interview with Tom McKee from BROTHERS PAST; Playing NYE in Philly! @brotherspast @blpfam

Philadelphia 4-piece Brothers Past has been active in the music scene for quite some time.

Review: GOOD GRACES s/t EP by Matt @mattcoveydrums

If Good Graces self-titled EP doesn’t bring on fever dreams of cornerstone No Idea Records’ bands like Hot Water Music and Small Brown Bike, along with 90s Emo like Sunny Day Real Estate and Jawbreaker, you’re just doing it wrong. Even their irony-laden song titles scream reformed 90s Ska or Hardcore kid.

A Life Once Lost Interview with Bob Meadows

Philadelphia’s A Life Once Lost are frickin’ heavy… Think Meshuggah with a slightly more Hardcore tinge. Since 1999, the quartet has been bulldozing their crowds with a sick blend of punctuated rhythm, technical riffage, and tortured vocals. It’s really fun to watch in concert.
