This one just came across the Ambassador Beats Google+ feed, and I just couldn’t pass it up. Usually I let The Conductor handle these beats, but I had my headphones on and decided to step up to the plate.
Marvin Zeyss is a upstart house and techno producer from Germany. He just released a new EP entitled Movements From Beyond. This three song EP clocks in at just under a half hour, but it chalked full with deep house beats.
This is the perfect way to get your Friday going so chill out and listen to Movements From Beyond below. Click here to head to Beat Port to buy the EP.
I’ll be honest, this post comes from the recent and tragic passing of Amy Winehouse, but that event has left me with a lot of questions. Right after her death many questions were asked, how did she die, did she deserve to die, and so on and so forth, but the question that stuck with me is when people asked, how will she be remembered?
This question has led me to wonder, for how many people, does the personality or lifestyle of the artist reflect in whether you can enjoy their music or not. When I asked why my girlfriend was listening to Chris Brown recently, she said “I listen to his music, not his personality”, which was brilliant, just don’t tell her I told you.
Before Kanye has his renaissance last year I can remember asking The Conductor if he liked Kanye, and he told me that he couldn’t get around Kanye’s personality and his assholeness to enjoy his music.
I personally don’t believe that an individuals personality or lifestyle should influence how you feel about their music. I feel that going into listening to something with having negative feelings will send you out with a bias. But if you just don’t give a fuck about the artists and take the music for what it is, it makes the music a much more powerful and intimate experience.
But I want to get your opinion on this matter. Please vote in the poll and drop us your comments either in this post or via Twitter. I look forward to hearing what you have to say.
I first wrote about TV Girl in February of this year and ever since if you called my cell phone, I’d hear If You Want It. It is literally the perfect song to be made into a ring tone.
Well today I might just have to switch things up now that TV Girl have released a brand new EP, Benny And The Jetts. Four brand new songs that will have you feeling nostalgic but rocking out at the same time.
In my misled youth I always told myself that if I could get a band together that played more than covers we would play melodic punk music. Since I am writing and not being written about, you can clearly see how well that dream went.
But if I had made that band work I would have wanted to sound just like Pentimento. This dual vocalistic melodic punk rock music is exactly what has been missing in my life lately.
I highly recommend checking this band out and picking up this EP today. You can check out my favourite song on the EP Everything’s Eventual below. As well click on Read More to check out their upcoming tour schedule with Heartwell.
The M Machine formally known as Metropolis have unleashed their first single off their upcoming EP. Rumours floating around place The M Machine as a reincarnate of Pance Party and with the sudden name change from Metropolis it wouldn’t be a shocker. From what little information I could find The M Machine are managed alongside Porter Robinson & Penny by the highly respected Slush Management. Blogs are eating them up and artist support for their upcoming album is growing. Find out why The M Machine is the talk of the town with the electro infused ‘Trafalgar’ below and keep an ear out for the San Francisco based outfit.
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t the first to The Strokes party, I actually didn’t come to appreciate Is This It till years after it was released. Also I feel anyone who wears the vintage Strokes t-shirt may be a douche bag.
Anyways… we’re coming up on the 10 year anniversary of the release of Is This It, and Stereogum has thrown together a tribute to the album which features 11 artists that each tackle a track and add their own person spin to it.
Owen Pallett gives an amazing rendition of Hard To Explain, the only track you’ll recognize if you aren’t familiar with The Strokes. But you should download it for Heems cover of New York City Cops.
The house music fans have been suffering lately due to the release of 21 Dub St. but I have something to cheer you all up. Three big time releases from heavy hitters Cirez D, Jesse Voorn, Jean Elan, Dirty South and Thomas Gold. These tracks don’t need any explanation just hit the d/l button and escape into a sea of bouncing house beats.
Dash Berlin is at it again this time featuring the soothing vocals of Jonathan Mendelsohn. The king of trance follows up Earth Hour with this melodic anthem that will leave you in a constant state of euphoria.
This is by far the most talked about and anticipated post in Ambassador Beats history. For the past 6 months we have been teasing you with previews, leaks, radio interviews and today I am happy to bring you the final copy of 21 Dub Street!
The mixtape is a hip hop meets dubstep project in collaboration with Richmond, Virginia’s rising star- Illa Scorsese. Sitting at 34 minutes in length the record features 7 bass filled tracks courtesy of Zeds Dead, Bassnectar, Magnetic Man, Netsky, as well as original tracks from Paul David & Damn You Mongolians.
Illa Scorsese has poured his heart into this masterpiece and has once again proven that he is a diamond in the ruff. No rapper has successfully crossed over from R&B to Hip Hop to Electro to Drum n Bass to Dubstep and back the way Illa has. He has literally made genres his bitch and bass music his best friend all in the same breath.
If all the hype hasn’t inclined you to hit the DOWNLOAD button yet then preview these three tracks, be amazed and let 21 Dub Street take over your soundsystem.
Why did no one tell me that the middle of July is the start of summer? Oh well not a big deal. Yesterday Ambassador Beats brought you the Dine Alone 2011 Summer Sampler and the DJ Benzi Sunscreen Mixtape so its only fitting that today we have the Amp Magazine 2011 Summer Compilation.
This compilation features 35 punk songs for free. There are a ton of awesome bands on this mix including Living With Lions, Broadway Calls, Red City Radio and Heartsounds just to name a few. You can click on Read More to view the full tracklist.
Mavado is a Jamaican musician/actor/DJ/producer that I have never heard of, BUT Diplo just remixed his track Delilah. Maybe I missed the boat because it has over 8000 plays in one day, but I’m not worried.
Seeing as how I didn’t hear the original I can’t speak to it, but this remix is really good. If The Rinse was still on the air (and I wish it was) I would bring this song to the table to play.
Diplo often amazes me because of the range of music he works on. I learned that because of his wonderful Blackberry commercial that also taught me that BBM has allowed him to gain a closer relationship with artists. Anyways, check out Delilah by Mavado below and pick it up on Itunes if you feel so inclined.
DJ Benzi has been hinting at this one for the past week so I’m pumped that its finally here. Sunscreen is 45 minutes of pure hits that is perfect for sitting poolside.
It features everything from hip-hop to classic rap and even a little moonbahton! So you can throw this on for your next BBQ and there is something for everyone.
You can stream and download the mixtape below and click on Read More to check out the full track list. The mix is 45 minutes straight and not split up into individual tracks so its already ready for your Itunes library, enjoy.
DJ Khaled’s new album dropped today and it features everyone under the sun. I’d list them all but that would take me all day. Say what you want about Khaled but he knows how to make mainstream hits that appeal to the masses.
We’ve heard a few tracks off this album already but I am going to share my personal favourite off the album, I’m Thuggin. This song features Waka Flocka Flame and Ace Hood and tells you exactly what to say when your girl asks for new shoes and a bag.
You can click here to head to Itunes to pick up this album for under $10. The album has your favourite rappers on it and every song on the album could possibly be released as a single.
I’m Thuggin – DJ Khaled feat. Waka Flocka Flame and Ace Hood
We brought you the new Asher Roth Summer Time video a few days ago but if you wanted more from Mr. Roth than you are in luck. Power 102.9 just premiered a brand new track off his upcoming LP.
The track is called Another One Down and features D.A. Wallach from Chester French. It is a more pop-friendly than you may be expecting from Asher Roth but I really like this track and can’t wait for the new album.

I saw The Pierces on the Google+ feed from my new friend Jenny May who runs BandweBlogs.com and I would like to just say thank you Jenny. I had never heard of The Pierces until now but each new song I hear is making me like them more and more. I did a little research and it seems these sisters currently only have an British record deal and are working to expand their audiences across the pond. But that doesn’t mean we can’t listen and enjoy their music until some smart American record company signs them
