As the heat of Mamby on the Beach starts to cool off and the sounds of multiple artist blending in the background become a form of our weekend soundtrack, we were introduced to Ravyn Lenae. This beautiful, young, and incredibly talented Chicago native demanded attention as she walked on stage and her vocals started to penetrate the air. Her voice and vibe are the true definition of transportive, just hit play on her latest EP ‘Midnight Moonlight‘ and close your eyes… you’ll see what we mean!
We loved having the opportunity to chat with Ravyn about her music, her likes, and her upcoming US tour! Check out of full interview and captivate yourself with Ravyn Lenae:

You guys! North Coast Music Festival was bomb! We tried new music, finally checked out artist we’ve been wanting to see, got to interview TAUK! and even got a haircut within the festival grounds!
Sadly, and very much so, we missed out on Friday. Though we geared up on Saturday and hit the road. Our approach was to try new music! It’s a new festival for us and we took this opportunity to dip our toes in different genres of music. We also brought our friend Kayla Noel (Click on her name to check out her music) who’s A) never been to a music festival before and B) is a musician so she gave us a different perspective on the entire performance aspect. The stages were close to each other, but with enough distance that they wouldn’t interfere with each other. The festival had it’s normal row of food vendors and they included an area for merchants to set up shop and sale their accessories. Black Black Moon was our favorite, their accessories were literally so cute, Alex would ware pretty much anything they have!
The festival vibe was great! A little different than what we’re used to, not in a bad way, just different. It’s very hippie-earthy… and not the dirty kind, like these people showered and took care of themselves, very freepeople on a budget. First was the Silent Disco… It’s such fun concept, any time there’s one, we have to go! The music was great and what was awesome about this one was that North Coast had live art happening within the silent disco area. We didn’t stay too long, we wanted to walk around plus the spray paint fumes were starting to get to us a little. We caught a bit of TY Dolla $ign as we walked in, ran to Raury (mainly because we wanted a good spot for Keys N Krates) and loved his set! Great energy, live music, super energetic, we really liked him! Keys N Krates took the stage and they rocked it, really love how they play off of each other and take turns showcasing their strengths. We went over to Bassnectar last, his set was great and that goes without saying, though the crowed was too intense so we bounced over to the Coast Stage and checked out Logic, man we’re glad we did! He’s ability to intertwine different genres of music, in live format, into a cohesive set is pretty unbelievable. All in all, it was a pretty killer start to our NCMF weekend!
Sunday was it for us! The day had the line up we were the most excited about: Sam Feldt, Matoma & Zedd while still focusing on trying new musi. We were able to catch a bit of TAUK‘s set, we interviewed the band so really wanted to get the vibe of them on stage (Check out the interview here). Their music is energetic and thee really exude passion, they’re going on tour this fall, so make sure you check them out! We hopped over to the Heineiken tent and played up in the cool air while listening to some dirty house ghettotek thumps dropped by Gant Man and after ran over to Jessie Royal for some inspiring music! After missing Sam Feldt at Ultra Music Festival back in march, it was important to us to catch his set. This dude is awesome! He brought a live saxophone player out on stage to play along some of his tracks! Sam Feldt, you’re killer and we’re obsessed! The rest of the night was great! Matoma was fun as always and ZEDD was incredible! It’s a little hard to beat his Ultra production, but he brought the house down! He was a great way to close a great weekend!
Ok!!! so here’s really what we loved THE MOST! American Crew set up an old fashion style barber shop within the ground of the festival! Like, mirrors, fans, two barber chairs, two stylists, products and all! The cuts were free and if you shared a before and after using @AmericanCrew #BlueSuedeBarberShop you got a free product! Matthew Pigula did Alex’s hair, this guy can cut some hair! American Crew & North Coast Music Festival, you guys earned some extra cool points!!! Check out our North Coast Music Festival adventure bellow:
Whenever we interview DJ’s, we always ask them what they think is the Sexiest Song. Since we posted CAZZZETTE‘s interview today, we thought we’d take a nod from their interview and post their choice of the Sexiest Song…Prince‘s FUNKNROLL! Check it out below and see if you agree with CAZZETTE! We definitely do!

We’re going to say this with much certainty; Sam Smith‘s cover of Whitney Houston‘s How Will I Knowis the best song of 2014. If you haven’t heard of Sam Smith by now, you better get with the times. This 22 year old Brit is taking over the world with his old school charm and his soulful sound. Hit after hit, he has proven that almost everything he puts out is guaranteed gold. Although he released an amazing video for his new hit single I’m Not the Only One, our favorite of his work so far is his cover of Whitney Houston‘s How Will I Know for Sirius Radio. Check it out below. It will blow your mind! And when you’re done, check out Glee’s beautiful Diana Agron in I’m Not the Only Oneplus his official tour dates!
With the release of Jennifer Lopez’s newest video for her hit single Booty with Iggy Azalea, she has placed her best assets in comparison with Nicki Minaj’s recently released Anaconda. We’re huge fans of all three, but the question is…who has the best booty? We’re partial to JLO’s beautiful behind, but we’ll let you be the judge. Check out both videos and let us know who you think is the winner of best booty!
Taylor Swift might have just released a really cute new song and video, but Nicki Minaj is blowing us away with her incredible #ASS in her official video for Anaconda. If you haven’t seen it you have to check it out below!
We are so in love with Love Never Felt So Good from Michael Jackson & Justin Timberlake that its making us miss Michael even more! It’s so perfectly Michael we just can’t get enough! If you haven’t heard it, check out the official single below!
Lil Jon has teamed with French producer Freaky Bass to create “Rager Day”. Lil Jon has been penetrating the EDM world with collaboration after collaboration… and they’re killer!!! The hip-hop artist has molded his “party-out-of-control-boy” personality and translated into the beats that rage through the masses and into music festivals. The track is high energy and fun and really catchy! Next thing this killer cat needs to do is produce and start DJing!!! Just saying Lil Jon! Just saying!!!!!!!
