Moon Hooch Pushes Sonic Boundaries On New Single, ‘Booty House’ [Premiere]

first_imgThe beloved trio known as Moon Hooch began innocently enough, with three music students busking in the subways of New York City. Those days are long in the past now, however, as their approach to dance music has cemented their place as musical innovators. With two horn players, Mike Wilbur and Wenzl McGowen, alongside drummer James Muschler, the band creates an intoxicating sonic display with each and every performance.With two albums in the books, Moon Hooch is gearing up for their third-ever release, Red Sky. Due out on June 10th, Moon Hooch’s new release pushes the boundaries even farther, using electronic technology to add mystifying effects to their organic instrumentation. The new elements of Moon Hooch’s music are almost too innumerable to count: Electronic Wind Instruments, a “Reverse DJ” setup with saxophone sounds running through Ableton, vocal contributions from Wilbur, and more.Not only that, but Muschler travelled to India to immerse himself in percussion-oriented music. The band also champions meditation and environmental causes, and themes of consciousness – both self and environmental – run rampant throughout the release. At the heart of Moon Hooch is dance music, which is the cornerstone of Red Sky.With the new album due out in just a few short weeks, the band has offered us a first listen single premiere. Tune in to “Booty House” from Moon Hooch’s upcoming Red Sky release, below.Wilbur spoke to us about the creation of “Booty House,” saying, “This track was made in our old basement in Brooklyn after smoking a large spliff. It was a time where as a joke I would blast happy hardcore music and dance around the house. I guess that influenced this track.”You can pre-order Red Sky by following this link.

Ruiz draws inspiration for Joshua fight

first_imgRelatedPosts AJ’s ex-opponent Miller fails another drug test Miller: I’ld have put Joshua in a casket Jarrell Miller: I’m better fighter than Joshua Andy Ruiz Jr has stated that he will envisage Anthony Joshua trying to take his kids’ cereal to motivate him ahead of their crucial heavyweight rematch on December 7.The Mexican produced one of the greatest upsets in boxing history back in June, stopping Joshua in seven rounds at Madison Square Garden to become the unified heavyweight champion of the world.After stepping in as a last-minute replacement for drug-shamed Jarrell Miller, Ruiz made a mockery of the pre-fight odds when he climbed off the canvas to knock the overwhelming favourite down four times and deliver his first professional defeat.AJ has the chance to reclaim his WBA ‘Super’, IBF and WBO titles when he locks horns with Ruiz again in a pivotal Saudi Arabia rematch labelled ‘Clash on the Dunes’.But the new champion isn’t planning on handing the belts back to Joshua, revealing his extraordinary motivation technique on the Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast.When asked by “Iron” Mike what goes through his head before a fight, Ruiz said: “I’m just like ‘damn man, the guy in front of me, he’s trying to rip my head off, he’s trying to take my kids’ Cheerios away from the kitchen, their Cornflakes.’“I’m mostly just thinking about them, because I don’t wanna lose and I don’t want them to be disappointed.“At the end of the day, I just fight for my kids and my family.”Tyson then asked what his children’s friends at school say about his monumental success.“I’m like a superhero, especially to my kids,” Ruiz replied.“At least they can say ‘my Daddy can beat your Daddy up’ or something.“So yeah, they’re really happy man. They’re really blessed.” Tags: Andy RuizJarrell Millerlast_img read more

22cans posts Godus prototype video on Kickstarter

first_imgOn November 22, Peter Molyneux’s game development studio 22cans launched a new Kickstarter campaign. The game they wanted to fund was called Godus, and it’s described as a reinvention of Populous.Getting Godus funded requires £450,000 ($715,000) be raised, and with 3 days left to go before time runs out, 22cans is still well short of reaching that target. At the time of writing 11,727 backers have pledged £363,564 ($588,556), meaning they’ve still got another $126,444 to raise over the next 72 hours.In order to keep interest in the project high, 22cans released a video yesterday that you can watch above. It’s a prototype of the game demonstrating how the landscape can be manipulated, how your followers will grow and spread, and the subsequent territorial fights that will ensue when other tribes are met. It looks to be classic Populous-style gameplay.22cans has also promised a second prototype video will appear today, only this time it will include commentary from Peter Molyneux. As soon as it’s available I will include it here.I’m a little bit surprised that Godus hasn’t easily reached its funding target with days to spare. Populous is such a well-known and popular game that any new game that claims to reinvent it, especially with the original creator of Populous at the helm, would be an instant hit.Hopefully these prototype videos and the coverage they receive will help get Godus to its funding target. At the same time, I wonder if 22cans will attempt to fund the project by some other method if the Kickstarter fails due to how much time and effort they have already invested.More at Kickstarterlast_img read more
