It’s your turn to vote on your favorite Amp Live ‘Turn it Up’ Remix on Indaba Music. With over 300 remixes submitted, it took me close to 8 hours to go through them all. Visit the Indaba Music Amp Live Remix page to cast your vote. Stay tuned next week for the announcement of the winners.
I have to say, Black Spade is one of the freshest, skilled and most creative MC’s, producers and vocalist i have ever listened to. His music continues to push boundaries of hip hop and future soul whether he’s under his Stoneyrock alias or his work with genre bending Hawthorne Headhunters. Containing all new music, Spade just completed his first mixtape entitled ‘Build and Destroy’ presented by Union LA, Trackstar the DJ and TSS. Visit the Smoking Section for you own personal copy.

To the tune of Amp Live’s love for remixes, spin his latest hit, Turn it Up, in a new direction. Add your own interpretation to this club-inspired hip-hop single for a chance at $500, a spot on an official release, and some cool gear.
Remember the early days of hip-hop, when b-boys and girls rocked the planet over electro grooves and space was the place to be? Amp Live does. The Bay Area-based producer, best known for his work with Zion-I, boldly ventures back to the genre’s Afrofuturist roots on the lead single “Turn it Up” from his new solo album, Murder at the Discotech. Like Marty McFly with an MPC and a DeLorean on 22s, Amp Live brings the perfect beat back in the name of science, elevating hip-hop out of its creative doldrums and restoring innovation to the genre. Besides producing all five of Zion-I’s critically-acclaimed studio albums (and the Grouch collabo Heroes in the City of Dope), Amp Live’s official remix credits include Linkin Park, Radiohead, Tapes ‘n Tapes, Jamie Lidell, MGMT, Jealous Girls, Tokyo Police Club, and Why?.
“Turn it Up” represents bass-infused robotic beats featuring Mickey Factz (featured on the cover of XXL’s Freshman of ’09) with more swag than a college senior. This new electro-inspired banger recalling the glory days of Run-DMC, T La Rock is being remixed left and right, with much potential for innovation.
On Saturday, June 19th Amp Live and friends are taking over the Shattuck DownLow in Berkeley for the East Bay Version of his record release party for the forthcoming record, Murder at the Discotech. The show features performances by Zumbi of Zion I, Trackademicks, Kev Choice, Deuce Eclipse and more. Amp Live’s solo show is not to be missed as he covers dubstep, electro and hip hop music run through his samplers and beat machines tweaked out with his own individual styles. Murder at the Discotech drops June 15th in stores everywhere and features Mickey Factz, Myka Nyne, Zumbi of Zion I, The Grouch, Eligh, FASHAWN, Hot Tub, Trackademicks and more.
For those of you who missed BFD last weekend, here are a couple pics from the performance. Photo credit Steve Jennings.
