You Should See: BLAQSTARR

Blaqstarr @ Rock & Roll Hotel

Mad Decent resident Bmore dj, Blaqstarr, is spinning at the Rock & Roll Hotel tomorrow night. Blaqstarr is really big in the Baltimore scene, with a more innovative take on the Baltimore sound. Most of the dance tracks out of there are usually just looped around with catchy synths and hooks, but Blaqstarr’s sound changes more as the track goes on. For a taste, check out Shake it to the Ground with some vocals from a a fellow Baltimorian (Baltimorite??) Rye Rye, who kinda sounds like M.I.A. but not really. Just listen.

And on that Mad Decent note, Diplo put out on the Mad Decent blog a couple days ago this remix of Flashing Lights. It’s supposedly off of the mixtape he and DJ Benzi are putting out with Paper Route Records (sample is out on blogs, I’ll post later).

Wherever it’s from though, it’s my favorite remix by far.
