ONE4ALL | Anna Love – Skip A Beat (ONE4ALL Remix) | AfroMonk.com Exclusive

time June 6th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , ,

ONE4ALL is one of Texas’ best-kept secrets. Augustine lives in Austin and is ready to start turning heads. He caught my attention awhile back before I even moved to Texas with his Lil Wayne Deuces remix. During the time I lived in Texas I got to spend quite a large amount of time with him and also rage a few shows together. He’s a great guy and his music just keeps getting better and better.

Augustine has been hustling the past few months releasing tons of new material and just put out a single with Sugarpill that crushes. Not to mention his Beat King’s Crush remix absolutely makes a crowd explode. I just got back from Wakarusa and while watching the homie Wizard throw down he dropped Augustine’s Crush remix and it totally set the tone for the rest of the set. I’m happy to share another new fresh beat by ONE4ALL. This is a remix of another Texas resident Anna Love. This remix is super chill and adds a great vibe during any set. Augustine totally warped the original into something sweet and melodic. I’ve been using this one quite a bit since I heard it and happy to share with you all.

ONE4ALL is one of the hardest working guys online to me. He is a Mod in my turntable.fm room and always previewing his new material in the room or playing originals. He deserves your attention and worth scooping out more of his music. Don’t be surprised to be hearing more of his name especially with his upcoming EP and collaboration (Connect4) with The Digital Connection out of Colorado. I’ve had the opportunity to hear some of the music they’ve written together and know that you’ll all love it as much as I do. I only wish the best for Augustine and know he’s headed on the right track to the top.

The Digital Connection | Lazer Party Mixtape

time April 20th by Taradactyl authorTags: , ,

Lazer Party Mixtape

Passionate producer/DJ and homie The Digital Connection (Ricky Shine) is doin’ big things. I kid you not when I say that every time I listen to Ricky’s newest tracks on SoundCloud, I am even more impressed than the last. His latest and greatest all-original Lazer Party Mixtape certainly reflects this sentiment. And he has spoiled us with a free download! With a nice gradual yet enticing build including sparkly notes and deep stunning melody, the principal development of the mix is on point. Then it transitions into a killer beat with ___ samples from Aretha Franklin’s “I Say A Little Prayer for You”. I really can’t wait for that track’s release. The remainder of the mix continues to satisfy my constant craving for mellow yet vibrant electronic frequencies. At a little over halfway through we get some of that nice blappy lazerbass Ricky loves. We later get hints of gangsta bass at around 30:00 which is personally my favorite segment. The bass gets deeper while retaining the unique multidimensional structure of the rest of the mix. Then we get an absolutely beautiful poignant section that makes me want to call my friends and tell them how much I love them J. His remix of Kaskade & Deadmau5’s “I Remember” (while admittedly I dislike most that I hear from both) is a fun way to start the wind-down. The mix ends on a high note with a fun upbeat tempo. Listening to Lazer Party Mixtape all the way through is such a treat and it takes you on a pleasant roller coaster ride; just when I feel a slight lull the next moment I feel myself grooving to the beat. It’s so clean and thought-out. I can tell that Ricky devoted his soul to this music, revealing to each listener a part of it. This is more expressive and sincere than anything I’ve heard from him yet.

Indulge yourself and take a listen to The Digital Connection’s Lazer Party Mixtape! I know you won’t resist downloading.I can’t wait for his upcoming release as well as to hear more of his collaboration with friend One4All (named Connect4)! Those two are crushing it across state lines.
