The Legendary Beatnuts Performs at Central Park’s SummerStage

LAMC @ Central Park
日本語

Битьнуц– легендарной хип-хоп группа из Нью-Йорка концерт в центральный парк

The Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) – described by the NY Times as the “Sundance of Latin Music” – celebrates its 15th anniversary and yet another year of collaboration with SummerStage for an exciting series of concerts featuring the legendary Beatnuts on Wednesday, July 9.

The Beatnuts, which includes Ju-Ju(of Dominican descent) and Psycho Les(of Colombian descent), have paved the way for new generations of Latin artists as the only Latin members of the infamous Native Tongues collective. The Beatnuts is one of the most underrated groups ever in my opinion. Maybe it’s because their hedonistic party-style lyrics……

Originally, JuJu and Psycho Les were DJing parties under the alias Beat Kings. The Jungle Brothers claimed that they were not kings, but rather two nuts for their comical nature and the fact that they were crazy enough to carry hundreds of records to every show they played. They thus changed their name and “it stuck.”

The Beatnuts hit the stage right before 9pm when it was dark. They performed classic hits such as “Off The Books,” “No Escapin’ This,” “Watch Out Now,” “Se Acabo” and “Here’s A Drink.” Their old time collaborators Large Professorand Cuban Linkalso performed and showed some love.

French-Chilean rhymesmith Ana Tijoux, Harlem MC Bodega Bamzand Brooklyn spinner DJTony Touchwere also featured on the show.

1             Paranoid – Ty Dolla $ign feat. B.O.B.

パーティーのヒップホップ曲で今一番あついのがこれ。DJ Mustardプロデュース、twerkノリのサウンド。Paranoidを筆頭にマスタード作の曲をつなげてかけると盛り上がります。この次に人気なのはクリス・ブラウン&キッド・インクの、”Show Me”かな。

This bouncy hit produced by DJ Mustard is the hottest hip-hop joint at the party for the moment. Starting off with “Paranoid and throwing a few more songs by Mustard would be the perfect set to move the crowd. My next choice would be “Show Me” by Chris Brown and Kid Inc.

2.         Nana – Trey Songz

DJ Mustard、第二弾。がんばってますね。マスタードの新作はなんと、トレイ・ソングズがあのフージーズの懐かしの名曲、Fu-Gee-Laのコーラスをそのまま歌っています。ちょっとせつない感じのR&B、一度聞いただけで耳に残ります。ヒット間違いなし

The song number 2 is Trey Songz’ “Nana,” also produced by DJ Mustard is using Fu-Gee-La sample. Nice song.

3.         Higher Ground – TNGHT

先週の日曜日はバスケットボールのオールスターゲームがありました。それでだったのか、最近この“Higher Ground”がクラブでよくかかっていたような……。AdidasコマーシャルでNBAプレーヤーが出てて、この曲がバックグラウンドでした。あまりクラブに行かないスポーツライターの友達も、久しぶりにパーティーに来てくれた際、この曲を聞いて「Higher Ground だ」と喜んでました。Kendrick Lamarもこの曲でフリースタイルしてて、かなりかっこいいです。

“Higher Ground” to me is like an unofficial anthem for Basketball Games. I saw NBA players on Adidas TV commercial and this song was played on the background. Kendrick Lamar is also featured on the track.

カルバン・ハリス新曲~DJ June NY Club Chart ニューヨーク・クラブチャート– November 26, 2013

CalvAlessVidnew600
1          Under Control – Calvin Harris & Alesso feat. Hurts

昨年と今年大活躍したカルヴァン・ハリスの新曲です。 爽やかな男性ボーカルが生える(まだ大ブレークとまでは行かないけど)クラブ映えするとってもノリのいい曲です。 残念ながら、昨日のアメリカン・ミュージック・アワードでは、惜しくも Avicii にエレクトロ部門の賞を奪われてしまいましたが…….。 Avicii の “Wake Me Up” という曲はクラブで今でも圧倒的人気ですから…….。

The king of EDM, Calvin Harris’s new electro-pop song “Under Control” featuring the vocal of Hurts’ Theo Hutchcraft is not a full-blown major hit yet but a perfect club banger. At American Music Awards, unfortunately Avicii took the Electronic Dance Music award over Calvin Harris as Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” still dominates the dance floor across the world.

2          Timber – Kesha & Pitbull

ずっと二人で全米、海外をツアーをしているので息もピッタリ。日本にも行ってTVに出たと聞きました。見たかったなぁ。何ヶ月か前に二人のツアーがアトランティック・シティーにも来て、友達がバックDJをしていたので、観ることができました。ラッキー!最初に Kesha のコンサートで次に Pitbull のコンサートという2部仕立て、でも覚えているのは Kesha のギタリストがちょーかっこ良かった…..ほとんどそれのみ(笑) 。

Kesha and Pitbull have been on tour nationwide and worldwide and their chemistry is real great. I heard they even went to Japan and appeared on TV shows. I wish I could have watched it. A few months ago, I was so lucky to experience their show when they came to Atlantic City. My fellow DJ friend who was playing at their concert invited me to see the show. Kesha performed the first part then Pitbull did his thing for the second part but all I could remember was how cute Kesha’s guitarist was.

3          Walking On Air – Katy Perry

少しフリー・スタイル風(ラテン系イタリアン系の人達から発生した、 80年代中頃に流行したダンスミュージック)で、懐かしい曲調。Katy Perryちゃんは、今、大人気のRoarの様なアイドル的ポップ・ソングから、この曲の様なちょっとハードな感じも歌いこなせる可愛いだけじゃない実力派。そうでないとアメリカでスーパー・スターにはなれないのだ。

The track “Walking On Air” is an early 90s-inspired deep house-Eurodance-disco song. Katy Perry not only sings power pop songs like “Roar” but also can sing a classic disco rager like this one.  She’s not just a pretty face. Her versatile vocal ability makes her a real super star in America!

1          Thank You – Busta Rhymes, Q Tip, Kanye West & Lil Wayne

AUDIO

クラッシクR&Bの I wanna Thank you をそのまま使ったトラックに、バスタ、カニエ、Qティップ……..超豪華メンバーのてんこ盛り…。パーティで流行るかどうかわからないけど、こういうのも新鮮で素敵です!

Busta Rhymes’s new single “Thank You” transformed disco diva Alicia Meyers’s 1981 classic, I Wanna Thank You, into a upbeat star-studded collaboration featuring Q Tip, Kanye West & Lil Wayne.  Not sure if this gonna be big on dance floor but definitely refreshing!

2          Love Game – Eminem feat. Kendrick Lamar

AUDIO

Emimenのアルバム凄く評判いいですね!私自身もどの曲も大好きです。Kendrick Lamarがフューチャリングされたこの曲は明るい感じのトラックに、オールドスクールのリリックなんかも盛り込まれてて、とっても楽しいです。

Eminem’s new album is fantastic. I love every song on Marshall Mathers LP2. “Love Game” is a good vibe song featuring Kendrick Lamar and Em threw some old school lyrics.

3          Know About Me – Timbaland feat. Jay-Z, Drake & James Fauntleroy

AUDIO

Timbo-Drake-Jay-Z-Collabo

あのTimbalandのチキチキビートが戻ってきた!そしてJayZとDrake……パーティーで盛り上げてくれる一曲になって欲しいです。

Timbaland’s come back! Timbo’s productions chops are the star of the show. Joined by Jay-Z and Drake should keep the party going.
