In case you’ve been living under a rock for a while now, URB is a big supporter of the Brooklyn rave institution RINSED, who has come back after a very short hiatus to smash things up again in the borough that everyone is flocking to. The team behind the event series has been careful in constructing tomorrow’s event, entitling it their “Welcome Home” edition. Now, before you run off and play Metallica’s “Sanitarium (Welcome Home”), we at URB would advise you to stop, because instead of that, you should really get hyped for seeing tomorrow’s special guests, Jacques Greene (LuckyMe/VASE) and Cashmere Cat (Pelican Fly). While you’re getting hyped up for that, you should realize that tickets for tomorrow’s event are going insanely fast, and there’s not many chances to grab a ticket, unless you want to try at the door tomorrow (more on that down bel0w), but considering how long we’ve supported RINSED, we were wondering if we could get an inside look as to what the two residents of the night (Dan Wender and Blacky II) would consider some current RINSED summer jams. They took to task and brought URB back some wonderful responses. Check out their tunes, as well as a way to get some tickets for tomorrow’s event, post-jump.
UPDATED: The final headliner has finally been announced for the Governor’s Ball. None other than Guns ‘N Roses has been announced to anchor what has already been touted as a ‘stacked’ lineup. ”We’re stoked to be performing at the Governors Ball!” says Axl Rose, “we’re all really excited in GNR to be part of this festival, and with such talented and diverse acts in what looks to be a great weekend!!” With early bird tickets already sold out, you can bet that there’s going to be another flood of tickets sales. Stay tuned for more info, or catch the links below to follow the Governor’s Ball official sites.
Now in its third year, The Governor’s Ball Music Festival, New York’s marquee festival event, has a line up that is shaping up …
The line-up is out for the 14th Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, and there’s a lot of reasons for music fans to be excited, especially those obsessed with early-’90s UK music. Friday night will feature co-headliners Blur and The Stone Roses, two seminal UK acts that have reformed in recent years, much to brit-pop lover’s delight.
Saturday proves it still possible for newer bands to hit massive success, with French indie-poppers Phoenix handling headlining duties, followed by UK phenoms The xx. Sunday offers veteran fare with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, two acts who have been making music since before the average Coachella camper was born.
Other highlights include Resident Advisor’s #1 DJ of 2012, Seth Troxler, the recently reformed LA hip-hop legends Jurassic …
As with any major release nowadays, the number of remixes, both official and bootleg, can be overwhelming. So how does one decide which rework of a band as beloved as The XX is worth listening to? How about asking Jamie XX of the group itself, who debuted a remix of their current single, “Angels” done by Four Tet, whose recent remixes of indie luminaries such as Radiohead, Vampire Weekend and Battles (plus his own superb catalog of work) has made him one remixer you can certainly count on.
