A few months ago I received this dance floor drum & bass tune from an artist I had not heard. As soon as I listened and the first drop came, I knew the kids were going to love hearing this dnb track in club. During my nightly search on Google Records, I stumbled upon this HUGE dubstep remix that Krusha submitted for the Metric Remix contest and again he hits the dance floor hard. So if you like big basslines w/melodies head on over to HYPE MACHINEand give KRUSHA a heart. Be sure to check out his Soundcloud page too because I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more from Krusha on the Tighten Up podcasts.
Here it is folks. We’re making good on our promises. Every week, we will be giving away a track from Tighten UP! podcast 5. And we are happy to present you with “At Last”, by Alvin Risk.
Fresh off the success of the Designer Drugs remix, Back Up In This, Alvin Risk has debuted his EP, The Making Of. The lead song, “At Last,” touches down on the spaced out tip, painting the loveliest end of the world scenario we have ever heard. All of the tracks have a lush, melodic feel, while still retaining a very approachable, dancefloor vibe. And with this EP, we have officially entered Alvin Risk for the Rookie of the year award. Download away, and don’t forget to check him out on Podcast 5.

In recent months, DC has witnessed some impressive musical talent emerge from the nation’s capital. From Nouveau Riche fame, Starks & Nacey have kept a steady crowd pleasing progression through minimal beats and bass. Alvin Risk appears to have descended from space and introduced an overwhelming amount of “what the crap!”. Quietly trailing behind her brother, a new star in DC is about to take form. Painted Face has been preparing for her debut record with songs like Sum of Me and The Undreamt featured on the Tighten Up Podcast 4. She has already created enough buzz through the internet and has begun to plan her first tour this fall.
