Andy Grammer and Melissa NKonda - Keep Your Head Up 

Hey guys! Resident Blogger DJ Jason here aka DJ Cinnamon Roll aka DJ Blastoise aka DJ Greenisnotacreativecolor . Woo! 

So I’ve been a fan of Melissa Nkonda for awhile now. She’s a French pop singer. I love her singles Nouveaux Horizons and J’ai fait tour ca pour vous. Now some of you are like, Jason, where on Earth did you hear about her? Well Z100 has an international segment and that’s where I heard a clip of Nouveaux Horizons and I loved it so much I went home and downloaded. 

But the above video is a collaboration she did with Andy Grammer on making an international version of hit song, “Keep Your Head Up.” Now, I love Andy Grammer because he has such a fresh voice, and he sounds just as clean live as he does in his studio version. Now I’m not sure if Andy actually speaks French, but watching the video you can really see the passion between the two singing. There’s a connection and a lot of fun going on. I love about half way through the video when Melissa is singing and Andy begins to beatbox. They just go with it. 

These are the musical moments that we as fans should savor. This is beyond all the image crap that artists are obsessed with and this is just pure sound. I hope you enjoy the video and Melissa’s music as much as I do! (Even though I admittingly have no idea what she’s saying). 


Hey everyone! I hope all your summers are going fantastically and that you are enjoying this wonderful Monday off! 

Resident blogger Jason here aka DJ Chthulu aka DJ Sexbomb aka DJ Jazzy Jay with some AWESOME summer music. 

Why should summer vacation mean no more music? I stumbled upon this group in a store I believe and loaded it onto my shazam.

(Which by the way, is an app you should download if you do not have! It’s a must have for any smart phone. Basically if you hear any studio version of a song you use the shazam app to listen to the song and it will make a record of the song so that you can go later on to download or listen to it). 

The group is called Karmin, and they are kind of a Pop/hip hop sound. They have their own genre called Swag pop (it’s really just pop…). It’s made up of Rapper/singer Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan. 

Get ready guys, I think this group is going to BLOW up (not literally, God forbid). They were musical guests on SNL this month and on Ellen as well! Their current single out right now is “Brokenhearted.” Now Brokenhearted is the song that I shazamed. But after listening to more of their music, their lesser known single from last year is really my favorite, “Crash Your Party.” It has that upbeat jam that I think just gets everyone out and excited for summer. Cheesy, I know, but I still enjoy it and thought you Top 40 fans would enjoy it as well! I think the reason I enjoy them is because their Top 40 isn’t a Ke$ha sound or some Britney Spears. They put their own little spin on it with the rap. I guess that’s why they call it swag pop. haha. 

That’s it for this week’s music find! Please feel free to submit to our askbox if you have any cool finds or suggestions for posts!

It has been an amazing semester being your resident blogger. Tune in now to hear one of my shows! 


See you guys next semester! 


So my co DJ Lauren (also Street Team member) has got me hooked on this artist, and this song! She has a very Amy Winehouse sound but with a bit more of a hip hop vibe. I absolutely love it.

STUDENT CONCERT REVIEW: Michael Jackson The Immortal

I just got back from Michael Jackson Immortal: Cirque de Soleil. I can’t say enough good things about what went down tonight. Michael Jackson has always been such a huge inspiration to my life. He is a music God in my eyes. He’s considered one of the best melody composers, beatboxers, dancers and lyricists of all time and he touched people all around the world. At the concert there were people that were all different ages, ethnicities, sizes etc. And we were all there to bask in the ambiance that was the message of love that Michael spread. 

Cirque de Soleil usually known for it’s amazing acrobatics changed it up of course for this particular tour. The dancers were the best of the best. Some of my favorites included “Wanna Be Startin Something,” “They Don’t Care About Us,” and the finale “Immortal Megamix: Can You Feel It/Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough/Bille Jean/ Black or White.”

In Wanna Be Startin Something they brought in an African tribal feel to it. There were dancers all over the stage and I didn’t even know where to look. There was a wild tribal aspect to it intertwined with hip hop moves. The costumes were exotic and they had long green claws and animal costumes. It was just insane. “They Don’t Care About us” was taken directly from his ideas from the This Is It concert set. There were dozens of dancers in the heavy robotic suits. LET ME TELL YOU. For those of you that saw and loved the This Is It documentary, it brought me TO TEARS watching it in real life. I think Michael would’ve been so proud. Through that heavy costume they moved so fluidly and beautifully and WERE SO FIERCE. The excitement, and the positive emotion just flowed through the room like nothing else. Simply incredible. 

The Megamix was the best part at the end. Everyone was standing and dancing. I was brought to tears when people were chanting “Michael! Michael” and “We love you Michael!” or “Live on!” 

I can go on and on. They included many clips of him speaking and of course his famous quotes.

I give this concert/show a 100,000,000 out of 10. I’ve seen many concerts. This was the best one I’ve ever seen and I think the best I will ever see. 

But the ultimate gift of that concert was Michael himself. Call me cheesy, but everyone in that stadium felt him with us, dancing and singing right along.

Rock Steady by No Doubt

Before Gwen Stefani was designing clothes with her Harajuku entourage, she was the super hot lead singer of ska-pop band No Doubt. Rock Steady, released in 2001, is No Doubt’s fifth (and latest) album. The band realizes their rock star potential by blending hip hop, dance hall, and ska influences together to create seamless pop-rock masterpieces.  Now is a good time to reacquaint yourself with everyone’s favorite ska-poppers since they are back together in the studio recording their newest project! Rock Steady really highlights the band’s maturity and is chock full of memorable singles. Who doesn’t get excited over “Hey Baby“‘s bratty lyrics? And remember how artsy the video for “Hella Good” was?
But don’t just stick to the stuff you remember from the radio! Explore the rest of the album to hear just how good No Doubt can really be. 
Recommended tracks: “Don’t Let Me Down,” “In My Head,” and “Underneath It All”


FOLKLORE - New Concert soon!

If you guys don’t know them, here’s a paragraph I grabbed from their site! They sound awesome! 

"Folklore is a mini-orchestra of players led by Jimmy Hughes. A veteran to the Athens music scene where he plays with the likes of Elf Power and Vic Chesnutt, Hughes took the songwriter role when he formed Folklore in 2005 to create two conceptual albums: The Ghost Of H.W. Beaverman (2007) and Carpenter’s Falls (2008).  Both based around a grandiose tale with different vocalists cast to sing each song, these albums offer splendid melodies at every turn with clarinets, strings, trumpet, didgeridoo, and more forming the backdrop to songs that critics have called poignant, provocative, heartbreaking, and haunting.”

Theo Katzman - Brooklyn

I think you guys will really like this. Very fresh sound. It’s alternative. My brother used to go to high school with him and he used to be apart of My Dear Disco/Ella Riot before leaving at a couple years of it. He’s trying to make it solo now and I see good things in this guys future! Also he’s apparently very good friends with Darren Criss!
