The band’s uptempo track “My Eternity” finds its way on the latest installment of StripJointsMusic
story by Eugenio Torrens of ED Publications
Vocalist Yessi Burton was visiting his hometown of Barstow, California in 2002 for a two-week trip. The day before he was due to fly back to Colorado, Burton happened to meet drummer Billy Norris at a community pool where there was a local band playing covers of bands like System of a Down and Pantera. Burton was singing along when Norris heard him.
Sweden’s self-proclaimed “Lil Weed Hoe” Ängie stirs controversy with her autobiographical, trap-heavy track
Sweden, a Scandinavian nation with thousands of coastal islands and inland lakes, is known as much for its Viking ancestry as it is for its wealth of popular heavy metal (Opeth, Ghost, etc.) and black metal (Marduk, Bathory, etc.) bands. But of course, there’s a lot more to Sweden than its pagan history and corpse-paint-wearing musicians. The antithesis to all of that is Ängie, an attractive, slim, young blonde girl who looks as innocent as the first snow of a Swedish winter.
Well, she’s not that innocent. Those looks belie a devil-may-care attitude, one that led her to write the controversial track, “Smoke Weed, Eat Pussy.” The song was described by one writer as “a rebellious anthem that finds Ängie dropping bars over trap heavy production” and “hip-hop for the internet generation.” However it’s described, with a title like that, what adult club DJ wouldn’t have dancers (and customers) clamoring to hear it again and again? That’s exactly why “Smoke Weed, Eat Pussy” is available for free for club DJs via StripJointsMusic.com.
Edgy riffs meet melody with the band’s new track, featured on StripJointsMusic.com
Three brothers supply the music, Matthew Nevitt supplies the voice. Though they hail from different backgrounds, the members of Message From Sylvia found an immediate chemistry working together. That chemistry is already producing a combustible mix of explosive energy with the heavy yet melodic first single “Heart Of War.” The track is already climbing the charts of Active Rock radio nationwide.
Collaboration featured on the brand new installment of StripJointsMusic
If there was a “hall of fame” for EDM and house music, Gary Richards—aka, Destructo—would be in it. He is a 25-year veteran of the genre, and is one of the founders of the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), arguably the biggest electronic music dance festival in the world. He was handpicked by legendary record producer and founder of Def Jam/Def American Recordings, Rick Rubin, to head the company’s Electronic music division, where Richards would develop such acts as Lords of Acid and God Lives Underwater. He went on to form his own record labels (Nitrus Records and 1500 Records), and in 2007 launched HARD Events, a concert brand which puts on popular EDM festivals.
Once the 2 Live Crew told the Florida judiciary to go fuck itself back in 1989, the Sunshine State has introduced a syndicate of notable hip-hop artists that have broke through to the mainstream. With beginnings in Dade County’s bass scene and incubated from countless nights inside local strip clubs, the “Dirty South” sound was devised and devoured. While the genre quickly spread to other cities with their indigenous variations (New Orleans, Houston and of course, Atlanta) the rowdy, bass-heavy, hyper-sexual sound—and it’s artists—were mainly calling the 305 home base.
