Making Moves


In the interest of offering more ways for people to engage with our postings and allowing for faster ways of updating our content we have moved DontSleepNYC to a new location on tumblr. Since February 2009 we have used this blog as a space to come together and share inspiration and creativity with the NYC and international underground music community. The DSNYC tumblr will continue to promote events in the NY area, review forthcoming Dubstep, Grime, UKG, Funky and Drum & Bass releases as well as feature exclusive interviews, mixes and downloads. This blog will remain online as an archive of our past work but will no longer be updated with new content. Many, many thanks to all that have shown us love by following us here on the site, coming to our shows or collaborating with us in any fashion. Still not sleeping!

Ble$$,
DontSleepNYC

Baauer - Rinse FM Mix

Photobucket

the lines that separate what's considered Trap vs what goes for Grime these days has increasingly gotten blurred in my opinion... .... hearing Brooklyn DJ/ Producer Baauer's Rinse FM mix really proves the point, with him even dropping a Faze Miyake track towards the end, as well as a Mele / Kano gem smack in the middle... it's a sic mix for sure... you can still download it from his soundcloud, and I highly recommend it... he's also set to tour with Just Blaze towards the end of the month... a lotta interesting things in the works all around...

Hizzleguy EP - Sin City

Photobucket

winding things down for 2012 here at Dontsleep... and although this year has definitely brought it's share of challenges there were lots of wonderful moments in between... hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season!!!

 although this probably won't be my last post of the year ;) this is for sure one that I've been waiting for, and it got released when I f**kin' blinked sometime in November... dammit... I still remember the first track off this release, when I saw Lost over a year ago at a Reconstrvct party... track is still one of my favz... Referring to a track called "The Massive" by Hizzleguy which came out on Sin City Records last month. The EP, simply titled Hizzleguy EP, features 4 club smashing cuts.. all of which hit the right spot, track for track imo... Hatcha and N-Type of Sin City never disappoint on releases... top notch beatz... Hizzleguy EP is at all good digital shops.... Juno, Boomkat, Digital-Tunes, Beatport etc...

also if your in NYC January 19th N-Type will be at Public Assembly for Profound Audio's Release Party... more on that soon. very nice line-up. You'll want to come thru for that one...for sure...

Flowdan VS Kaleidoscope Orchestra - SBTV




as someone who used to be in orchestra way, way, way back in the day. I thought this was pretty dope to see... if I could of done grime covers in class that would've been the sh*t.... hip hop covers even... music is important, and music in school is important. it teaches among many other things, the importance of collaboration... and the idea of working together for a common good... something thats hard to find these days.... anyhow... big up to The Bug on his page, and SBTV for uploading this... wicked to see.... Flowdan is wicked on the mic... two words come to mind "Jah War"
