Pac Div

One thing I’ll miss about college is the consistent opportunities to experience great events put on by student groups for little to nothing out of the pocket. UC Irvine’s Hip Hop Congress is bringing Urban Arts Festival back for its fourth run this year and again have packed the bill with talent.

LA’s own Pac Div will be headlining the night. Last I saw them was in ’08 opening for The Cool Kids and their performance was live as fuck to say the least. Like, Mibbs, and BeYoung never waste a verse and are so good at combining humor and honest introspection. One of the best and most likeable rap groups out there (check out the series they did on Vimeo).

Another LA local, Blu, will be the main opener for the night. At this point the man can be considered underground royalty and his Below the Heavens almost a classic.

UCI alum Azad Right and Nyne-D will start the night off. Last year’s show brought out Dom Kennedy and Fashawn in the most intimate environment you’ll get to see them. Check a (kinda shitty) video of Dom from last year below. Tickets are $5 presale (on-campus), $7 online and $10 at the door.

Can’t Touch This

So I’ve been trying my best to deal with this Wi-Fi that’s shittier than a Coachella porta-potty and just got a hold of some semi-reliable internets. Excuse the hiatus of beats and rhymes but throw on yer good headphones.

Bassex is quickly becoming one of my favorite dubstep producers. Here he takes Wolfgang’s ‘The Champ’ and dubstep-erizes it. Wolfgang’s sound is only a few steps away from dubstep and I wouldn’t be mad to hear more remixes like this.

Wolfgang Gartner – The Champ (Bassex)

Unreleased track from Pac Div, featuring Asher Roth. The rattlin’ bass sounds like something Chuck Inglish cooked up in the kitchen. Like, Mibbs, and BeYoung deliver solid punchlines with the added effect of an audience on the beat. Asher goes in as he has been lately — haven’t really heard a verse I don’t like from him in a while. Hatin is useless.

These two collaborating is probably pretty bad for the ozone layer. Emission levels of filth pretty high. They take the intro to La Di Da Di and twist it around Bassnectar‘s signature rhythmic basslines and Datsik‘s thizz-face inducing w0mp. Nicely blended.

Bassnectar & Datsik – Elevate

This is the first release of the much anticipated Re:generation project. Skrillex and The Doors get together to fuse eras here as the first of many artists from different time periods collaborating. I think they did a pretty damn good job of utilizing the common themes/sound between rock and dubstep. Skrillex crafts his thumping bassline with some guitar work and vocal snippets from who I believe to be Jim Morrisson. I could be 100% fucking that up though. One of the best Skrillex releases this year IMO.

Skrillex & The Doors – Break’n a Sweat

The homies Gooffee released another jam yesterday and it’s a good’un. Samples Ram Jam’s “Black Betty” which interestingly works really well. They’ve got the whole moombah-dub-core-whateverthefuck down pat. You’re able to groove and get down and dirty at the same time. Check out the video interview we did with them a little while back.

You should really set that image as your background… it’ll brighten your mornings. Anyways, LA local trio Pac Div’s been building up a solid fan base and respect from some big names over the past few years killin’ verses with a strong old-school influenced sound. Got to see them open for The Cool Kids and Q-Tip a few years back and they put on a hell of a show. They’ve teamed up with Don Cannon to blend decades with their latest mixtape, Mania! Their third tape since signing with Universal back in ‘08 packs a little of everything from start to finish; bangers, tracks to light up to, summer jams. They’ve been putting in work and it shows… if I haven’t made it clear, this shit goes harder than Sheen. Grab the whole thing below or you still a knucklehead.
