This event unpacks the braided histories of Chicago House Music and dance culture to understand its aesthetics and ways of making cultural meaning through a diasporic/ global lens. Born from the experiences of youth, people of color and alternative sexualities in urban locations—such as Chicago, New York City and Detroit—House Music is an embodied response to disempowerment and marginalization. House Music pioneers, including award-winning songwriters/producers, music scholars and academics, moderate panels. The symposium is curated by DJ Charles Matlock, archivist Lauren G. Lowery and scholar and dance performance artist Meida McNeal. The entire schedule is listed at: www.colum.edu/breal

Performances are February 20–22 at The Dance Center. Raphael Xavier performs The Unofficial Guide to Audience Watching Performance, an evening-length autobiographical dance continuing Xavier’s 30 years of experience in hip-hop genres—most specifically, breaking—directed by Ralph Lemon.

Mr. Lif & John Robinson | The Lost Nova | Mandala Vol. 1 | Polysonic Flows

Mandala Vol. 1, Polysonic Flows is the fourth Mello Music Group compilation.

With ten distinctive producers behind the boards, the soundscapes on Mandala Vol. 1, Polysonic Flows cover the map and the album is all the better for it. Oddisee of course helms the opener and tracks throughout with a musicality like few in Hip-Hop today. L'Orange brings subtle, jazzy suites to the table, and Quelle Chris provides dusty samples looped over hard-hitting drums as well as anyone else on the record. Jeremiah Jae also makes sure the bass-rattling, electronic bangers coming out of L.A.'s beat scene are well represented. Nothing here is solely run-of-the-mill boom-bap. Each beat is far richer and more inventive, able to play on its own and provide the perfect complement to the raps at hand.

World View | Miami

Miami, Florida has a long and storied history for skateboarders. It's a winter escape, it's a paradise of skatespots, it's right on the beach, and it's got an unparalleled night life. Like all skate meccas, many skaters have come and gone, and many have made it their home. This past winter we spent time filming with the locals and crop of upcoming skaters keeping the scene alive and kicking. This is our first World View video with many more to come. This is MIA, 2014.

Keef in NYC | Chiraq's New Kids | Chiraq | Episode 2

In the second episode of Noisey's Chiraq, Chief Keef and his crew head to New York while we catch up with MGS and Global Gangstas Entertainment, two other rap collectives in Chicago.

They, along with the Chicago Police Department, speak extensively on the social and cultural challenges faced by the community. Near the end, we're introduced to Yung Trell, a 14-year-old rapper from Englewood who's looking for his break.

Between The Beats | The Martinez Brothers

In this episode of Between The Beats, we follow The Martinez Brothers on a relatively short journey (The Bronx to Chicago to Hertfordshire to Ibiza), and hear about the larger one they've been on since 2007.

They released their first EP as baby-faced teenagers, and were a fixture on the global club circuit years before they were legally allowed in American clubs. Six years later, at 21 and 25, they're already seasoned pros, but they still seem a little stunned by it all.

The dawn of 2014 will see the brothers concentrate on new material, including getting in the studio with Seth Troxler to work on tracks for their collaborative vinyl-only record label, and talk of working on some hip hop beats.

Khat Power | The Latest War On Drugs

Khat is a chewable herbal stimulant, popular among the UK's Somali and Yemeni communities. Despite there being little or no evidence that the drug causes harm to its users, the British government is working to outlaw khat. Home Secretary Theresa May says she's worried that without a ban, the UK will become a hub for smuggling it to the US and Europe, where for the most part it is already illegal. Meanwhile, experts warn that a ban might alienate Somalis in the UK and cut off vital exports from Kenya, the UK's largest khat supplier.

VICE News followed the khat trail, from the farms of Meru, central Kenya to the suburbs of west London, meeting businesspeople, users and community members all keen to have their say. With exclusive access to a London khat warehouse and khat cafes in the English capital and Nairobi, we explored the industry and the implications of a ban at home and abroad. Smugglers are happy, the youth of Kenya are not.

World's tallest and fastest water slide | the Verruckt | is the stuff of nightmares

Verruckt means "insane" in German, and the slide, is scheduled to debut in May next year and is definitely not for the faint of heart.

The new water slide at Schlitterbahn, Germany is expected to shatter the current record for height held by the 164-foot high Kilimanjaro in Barra do Pirai, Brazil.

Adventurous souls must climb an agonizing 264 steps to reach its staggering 17 story-tall top. Four-person rafts will next send them hurdling back down to earth at a minimum speed of 65 mph.

The ride includes a five-story hump that shoots riders upwards as a climactic finish to what will no doubt become known as a bowel-loosening attraction

Krump is a freestyle dance form popularized 2001 in the streets of South Central, Los Angeles (USA), that is characterized by free, expressive, exaggerated, and highly energetic movement.

The youths who originated krumping, 'Tight Eyez' and 'Big Mijo', saw the dance as a way for them to escape gang life and to release anger, aggression and frustration in a positive, non-violent way. This was an opposition to street violence, which was prevalent due to violent gangster activities.
Today, Krumping has world wide influence in the dance culture, but Krumping still has difficulty gaining acceptance by our society as an art form. Primarily, because people do not understand this dance form and its spirit.

Meet Brooklyn's Voodoo Queen | Edeline St. Armand | Video

Being possessed, it turns out, is exhausting work. Just ask Mambo Edeline St. Armand. While popular culture portrays Vodoo as full of curses and sticking pins into little dolls, the religion has in fact played a central role in Haitian cultural identity since the country's birth, a result of the New World's first and only successful slave rebellion. Since Brooklyn is home to the largest Haitian population outside of Haiti, we sent Thomas Morton into our own backyard to witness the realities of being possessed by Vodoo,'s multitude of rowdy, rum-thirsty spirits.

Welcome to Chiraq | Chiraq - Ep. 1

In the first part of Noisey's 8-part documentary Chiraq, we head to Englewood, one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the city of Chicago, to meet Chief Keef, arguably one of the biggest rappers in the drill scene.

Unfortunately at the time, Chief was facing legal trouble, so we instead found Young Chop, a producer credited with shaping drill music, and he gives us an overview of the scene. Later, fellow 3Hunna members Lil Durk and Lil Reese expand on Chop's thoughts, and we learn extensively about the violence surrounding the area, and the social and cultural challenges the city faces.

DJ Reddi | Bedroom Sessions VI

Few DJs are able to balance technical ability with selection and San Diego's DJ Reddi aka Durwin Wallace is one of them. In DJcityTV's sixth episode of Bedroom Sessions, the former Navy sailor performs a high energy hip-hop set laced with dope scratches, juggles and tone play.

DJcity recognizes there's a ton of dope DJs from across the globe who deserve more shine. To showcase their talent, we've created a series called Bedroom Sessions which features folks throwing down sets in their homes. The mixes are open format without special effects, fancy club decoration and other fluff. Got what it takes to be featured in the next episode? Send an example video (2-4 minutes) to brs@djcity.com

Osunlade | featuring Supreme | Sour The Plan

With roots planted very much in the early jazz and soul influences of his formative years, 'A Man With No Past Originating The Future' is the latest album from Osunlade, one of the most creative and versatile producers and artists of his generation.

The American-bred, Greece-based producer has made a name for himself with his brand of soulful, African-inspired house music.
His latest full-length continues in this vein, with a highly organic sound palate and sumptuous rhythmic sensibility. The album features a guest appearance from a newcomer named Supreme, who lends vocals to the politically charged "Sour the Plan."
In addition to a CD release, Yoruba will issue 100 copies of the album on clear vinyl.

Yoruba will release A Man with No Past Originating the Future on January 28th, 2013.

SAVEMONEY | Still Alive | ft.Joey Purp & Kami de Chukwu

Savemoney, the crew at the forefront of Chicago hip hop for 2014, delivers their video STILL ALIVE, an anthem featuring members Joey Purp and Kami de Chukwu (Leather Corduroys) along with appearances by Vic Mensa, Chance The Rapper, Tokyo Shawn, Caleb James, Dally Auston, Brian Fresco and producers Thelonius Martin and Stix (Greg Landfair Jr). Originally set for release in 2013, the video directed by Chicago's own Verluxe was forced to shut down production after members were robbed at gun point during the shoot. As their schedules became increasingly difficult to coordinate due tour plans and recording sessions, the video was put on hold. Recently, the crew got together in Chicago to finish the video and prove that they're STILL ALIVE. Look out for much more music from this collective including a Leather Corduroys LP slated for release this year, Tokyo Shawn's "Wave Theory" and a new Donnie Trumpet project.

Blaqstarr | Gangsta | Blaq-Files

The Blaq-Files is out on 1/23 on Jeffree's / Mad Decent!

Blaqstarr is back! Prep yourself for the release of The Blaq-Files with an early free download of a Blaqstarr classic, "Gangsta!"

We've dusted off 4 of the heaviest unreleased tracks from the Supastarr era here and brought them into the light with brand new mixing and mastering. You might have come across these over the years but these new versions are super crisp and loud, doing justice to four classic tracks that were previously only available as low quality mp3s. Lose your mind all over again with "Hands Up Thumbs Down", "Lemme Hump You", "I Can Feel It In The Air" and "Slide To The Left."

Munchies | Jeepney

On this episode of Munchies, we visit Jeepney, the bustling restaurant in New York City's East Village, to learn what Filipino cuisine is all about. Then we hit the town with head chef and owner, Miguel Trinidad, and his business partners, Nicole Ponseca and Tomas De Los Reyes.

First, they take us over to their Chinatown staple, Nom Wah Tea Parlor, where they spend every New Year's Day. Nom Wah's owner, Wilson Tang, teaches us about the finer points of eating soup dumplings and a little Chinatown history. Buzzed off of pork broth, we head over to hang with Jeepney's neighbors at Ducks Eatery, where we sample the goat's neck with shots of potent homemade Mezcal.

The crew from Ducks Eatery joins us for a nightcap as we stumble over to the bar Pouring Ribbons for world-class cocktails and some hilarious stories from their colleague, Topher Chung. We finish off the night with a leisurely stroll back to Jeepney, where a whole set of friends is waiting to crush an epic Kamayan feast. Enjoy!

Anacron | Weirdos

With a dedication to the art of B-Boying on almost everything I've released since 1994, it's only right that I drop something for the breakers that have innovated styles over the same time period. Representing my crews LA Breakers and BrickHeadZ over some mid-tempo slaps from esteemed underground beatmaker Nocturnal Ron; "Weirdos" is a little something for the breakers bred in the grittiest ciphers, not on sparkling mainstream stages.

At the time and still today especially musicians and especially women were and are trapped in a spiral of repression, discrimination and violence.

"Sawtuha" (Arabic for "her voice"), the album that is the product of the 2-week session, is a vital encouraging testament of rebellion against the repression of democratic rights, gender inequality, and lack of inclusion.

The music is an organic mixture of traditional Arabic music, regional influences and various forms of contemporary Western musical genres. A mixture that may sound contradicting at first but makes total sense once you listen to the music.

Pre-order of Sawtuha including immediate download of 1 track in the high-quality format of your choice (MP3, FLAC, and more), plus unlimited mobile access using the free Bandcamp listening app.
