Jay2da is living proof that hip-hop/freestyle skills haven’t become lost to a generation of kids who think watching movies about pale-ass vampires running around impregnating girls is the coolest thing since Doogie Howser M.D. This east coast native hails from East Bridgewater, MA which happens to be one The Dankles members favorite area’s due to the city housing some serious co-ed talent @ Bridgewater State University (but thats neither here nor there). With lyric’s that are fresha then a muthaf*@ka and beats to that’ll have your mom Harlem Shakin’ down the grocery aisle, expect to be hearing more from this fresh to death talent. Peep this EP and stay tuned for a new one coming out soon.
Like we’ve said numerous occasions on the previews site; their is nothing that grinds our gears more then having to witness a bunch of R.O.T.Y’s “Rookie(s) of the Year” whenever we attend shows. For anyone that doesn’t follow, ROTY’s are usually (but not limited too) a group of $o Ca$h wearing underagers who don’t survive the entirety of a show due to multiple reasons that we just don’t have time to list. But, 19 year-old moombathon sensation Go Buck continually puts himself above of the class due to his illmatic remix’s and obvious talent. Stayed tuned and continue to GO BUCK!
If we were to ask Americans their thoughts on the land down under, what usually comes to mind are images of cute and cuddle baby kangaroos, the unforgettable theatrical performance of Paul Hogan in Crocodile Dundee, or a culture that prides themselves on being some of the best alcoholic’s on gods green earth. When The Dankles thinks of Australia, what instantly comes to mind is a land that currently houses some serious raw up and coming talent in the EDM world. Breno is a DJ hailing from Melbourne whos background is somewhat of a mystery to us, since it seems that SoundCloud is the only place that holds a record of his existence. But nonetheless, his remix to Skrillex’s latest track entitled “Right on Time” has received numerous clicks of the repeat button from us this past week which means a shout of his talents are in order. If anyone as anymore info on this Aussie could you please pass it along too us!
