It's not about what you say, but how you say it - especially when it comes to music on this site. This diamonds are a girl's best friend business has been goin on since Marilyn and even though the saying may be cliched enough, how it's said here has not. I didn't originally know this, but Janet Jackson lends her vocals from her 'Diamonds' song. However, as you'll see, Bronson has transformed her sweet style into some deep house, hypnotique soul. BRONSON Styles: Deep House Location: Athens, [...]
Okay, so last night I had a near nervous breakdown over audio issues. Because that's what normal people do right? Don't answer that please. So, here was my problem: My ART USB Phono Plus for, whatever reason, did not agree with my new computer. When I went from line-in to USB (analog-to-digital) all the high end on my recordings got cut off. It didn't matter what USB port I used, or how I configured my recording setup, no matter what I did it always sounds the same. And my other preamp, the cheapo regular one, gave [...]
No matter how brilliant a new track is, sometimes we just need to jam to the feel-good memories of old school R&B, when we were digitally disconnected, but connected in the most important way. Since the last Rhythm & Dreams playlist featured chill electronic, I decided to put together a set of tropical nu disco house with a splash of future garage. This time around Janet Jackson, Brandy, Robin, Beyoncé, Ashanti, Tweet and Mack Morrison get remixed by the honorable keepers of classic R&B. Shout out to writer Elizabeth Walker for featuring a few of these gems on [...]
This past Sunday evening I had the pleasure of attending Fortune Sound Club with my photographer in crime Ren Burress, a fellow bay native living out life here in cloudy Vancouver. Ren and I ventured deep into Vancouver’s historic Chinatown district to Fortune, for a live performance from San Francisco’s very own Kastle , and Canadian remix-god Kaytranada . As this was Kastle’s second time visiting Vancouver this year, the anticipation for this show couldn’t have been higher. Upon hearing this announcement I jumped joyously, though when I heard that he would be performing singles from [...]
Very few albums have effected us as much as Janet Jackson's monumental janet. Actually, it is one of the reasons why we fell in love with music so much. it was the perfect album. It had everything - slow jams, big hits, high energy dance numbers, a message and twists and turns. It encapsulated the journey that many artists attempted to take us on when the album ruled supreme. From the staccato of "Funky Big Band" to the sweet tone of "Where Are You Now?" Every track from the album [...]

The original version of mysterious London duo Snakehips ' "On & On" was pretty much A+ on it's own, its sensual, electro(& Ciara-sample)-glazed R&B shimmer and guest star/ Aussie vocalist George Maple 's lovely, effortless pipes equaling a relaxing hip hop-soul summer jam slow burn that made any attempt to remix the tune pointless, as such efforts would be bound to chip away at the song's perfection... ...that is, apparently, unless the people doing the remixing would happen to be the lead act themselves. Yes, having an artist remixing their [...]
No one buys albums anymore, goes the music industry truism. And yet, for all that the format's commercial viability may or may not be on the wane, sitting and listening to a great album from start to finish is one of the greatest pleasures that music can bring. Flavorwire recently got to thinking about how one might build a record collection if you really only did buy one record a year. So here's the result of our thought exercise: 50 albums you really should own, one a year from 1963 until the present day. Yes, of course this mean things [...]

My interview with Jimmy yielded far more fascinating information than I could fit in the piece, so below are his words on a variety of subjects related to America's little sister, Janet. [...]
Backtracking is our recurring look back at the pop music that shaped our lives. Friends may come and go, but we’ll be spinning our favorite albums forever. “We had the kind of night where morning comes too soon…” So goes the seductive spoken intro that launched Janet Jackson’s fifth album, janet. — that’s a little j with an emphatic period — released on May 18, 1993. Following the social consciousness of her previous blockbuster, 1989’s Rhythm Nation 1814 , Jackson returned with a fresh sound and look, and free-spirited confidence. The new [...]

Janet Jackson puts her weave in a curl and celebrates the 20th anniversary of her Janet LP. Sadly she turned out as carazy as the rest of those Jacksons. R.I.P. to her career etc.
Like a moth to a flame that burns by the fire, our love for Janet Jackson is blind, can't you see our desire — to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Janet with another Twitter re-listening party.

As the release date for Daft Punk ’s highly anticipated new album Random Access Memories draws nearer, we’re reminded of all those rappers who’ve borrowed the French electro duo’s sounds in the past. (Ten bucks says will.i.am is currently trying to figure out how to make his own version of “Get Lucky” titled “#GetPower”). Some have been more successful uses of their samples than others, but one thing’s for sure: Hip-hop loves Daft Punk. Everyone from Kanye West to Janet Jackson has aped their beats and verses, and we’ve narrowed [...]
Though the channel debuted in the early '80s, MTV really found its groove in the '90s when it still balanced music coverage with its burgeoning original reality, comedy, and animated programming.
