Entries in The Grouch (65)
One of my favorite crews of all time, the Bay/LA connected Living Legends just put out their first group song in forever (2008), featuring all 8 members and produced by Eligh. They also just released a Greatest Hits mix for those that might not be up on all the classics Living Legends have created over the years...

In Noah D’s debut video “Just Right” (featuring the Grouch), we learn that sometimes you have to turn down the hot girl in your apartment while you master your craft behind the mixing board. Such is the life for Noah D, who has traded in the blistering distorted drop of most dubstep-affiliated DJs and went another route -- turning subtle samples into behemoth audio. And it works.
With his roots in the rapid-fire world of drum and bass, Noah D has since expanded his lexicon of genres. His full-length debut -- the aptly titled “Perspective” due April 10 via 12th Planet’s Smog imprint -- dabbles in everything from hip-hop to hints of R&B, dancehall and menacing cinematic horns matched with a James Bond-esque feeling of thrill throughout. It’s a fascinating collision of ideas, all the pieces of which have been masterfully put back together to unveil a fantastic debut album.
