Whole-Z – The Ketchup Post

Ladies and gents, meet Andrew Holzberger aka Whole-Z, a brand new discovery of mine as of 23 minutes ago and already one of my favorite young remixers I’ve stumbled upon lately. A college student from Vermont, he’s remixed everyone from Martin Solveig to DJ Kool to Edward Sharpe; all of them wildly different and unbelievably well crafted. I’ll be making sure That New Jam is keeping a close watch on this kid’s progress because he’s certainly got my attention. 3 tracks to catch you up with so be sure to grab the downloads and enjoy!

David Sides – Playground Sessions Promo/Artist Feature

David Sides is without a doubt one of the most talented and popular modern day pianist, and that’s what you discover within the first 20 seconds of any of his YouTube videos. His fan base is worldwide and, although you may have never heard of him, his musical abilities takes what you may already love to another place – a transformation altogether. Posts like these are what makes “blogging” truly enjoyable, because I as a content selector get to display pieces that may be hidden treasures only waiting to be unveiled.

I’ve followed David Sides’ work for years, always becoming more and more impressed with each release. His ability to transpose some of music’s most popular records into something highly sophisticated and engaging (while still maintaining the core qualities of the song) lead him to the point where he is currently at. Mr. Sides has developed a innovative and revolutionary training software designed to educate and teach those who choose to learn the piano from the ground up. Its name is Playground Sessions, and the program takes an interactive (and up-to-date) approach to learning the instrument. Check out the program’s promo video below as well as all that David Sides has to offer – prepare to be amazed.

Cocaine 80s – A Ketchup Post

The collective known as Cocaine 80s consisting of powerhouses such as No I.D., Common, Steve Wyreman, Rob Kinelski, Kevin Randolph, James Fauntleroy, Makeba and others has put out some of the most intricate and soulful hip-hop/R&B music that I’ve heard in a real long time. It’s the kinda stuff that could possibly hold a candle to J Dilla and Kanye while they were in their respective primes. For those of you who have never had the privilege of hearing these guys, here’s the Ketchup Post to make sure you’re filled in on all the major touchstones of their work.
