Don’t expect anything less from this compilation, the MOM DJs, or anyone involved with this project–because as usual, they come through with the heaters in the ”MOM Remixes Vol.3″ available now for free download on Soundcloud. Donovan ‘DJ Gordo’ Cabeza, Motown On Monday’s founder, was kind enough to help elaborate for us on this MOM movement that is spreading fast across the nation–in my following interview:
Audrey: Can you tell us what was the inspiration for MOM, when was it first established, and who are its founders?
DJ Gordo: The soul music I heard as a child, by way of my mother and extended family, plus 15 years of DJing–was the inspiration. I started MOM (a.k.a. Motown On Mondays) back in 2009. Tim Ryan …
Audible Doctor stopped by to see Sway at the “Sway in the Morning” show on Shade 45/Sirius XM for a quick interview and performance. The emcee talks about his Wisconsin origins and his current projects only to crush it with a live performance in the booth right after. If you didn’t know already, Sway brings in “hyenas” on Fridays to “spite wack rappers.”
A-Trak and company were at it again for the first ever Fool’s Gold Day Off show in Florida at the Art Basel. Headlining was the truest thug himself, Trick Daddy. The lineup also included A-Trak’s older bro Dave 1 (of Chromeo), Brenmar, Nick Catchdubs, Danny Brown, Travi$ Scott, Flosstradamus, Young Thug, Damaged Good and Eskeerdo.

This week’s venture from INPUT at Output is courtesy of the French label Marble; who have been pushing the sounds of French dance music into places weird and wild for the past few years. In conjunction with their sonic brothers at Sound Pellegrino, the label has continuously flipped the script in regards to what dance music from France is known as. The days of “post-French touch” and “French electro” have gone by the wayside, as people like Surkin and Canblaster have taken bits of slow jams, ’80s, game soundtracks and even J-Pop to create music that’s superbly unique. Another thing to behold about these two artists is their constant knack for executing brilliant DJ sets that range from fantastic soundscapes to frenetic rhythms; as these two never keep things stable for too long. Thus why we here at URB are beyond excited to give you a chance to see them at Output this Thursday, on the cheap. Check out the promo code instructions and a preview, post-jump.
