BPM @ CMJ 2011

“All praises due to the creators of Juke music; A Chicago twist on an even faster foot work based genre extended from Baltimore Club and Bass. Known for hyper speed rapping and dancing (or juking). Future Bass music in general is an amalgamation of UK Funky, Ghetto House, Post Dubstep, Grime, Club, Hip Hop and R&B. Globally, electronic music is bigger than ever but has many sub-genres that the U.S. is gradually embracing. In collaboration w/ independent record label, Ghettophiles we’re curating an international music experience that’s typically found in the underground scenes of Chicago, London, Paris, Brazil, South Africa and beyond. BPM or BaPtisM is filling the void of the non-Top40 enthusiasts who desire more energy to burn on the dance floor. By way of CMJ in New York City, BPM 2011 will be showcasing the best in authentic innovative club music via the emerging and founding talent within North America; hosted by New York’s finest promoters and socialites. Drenched in beats and soaked in alcohol; Amen”

Illuminati AMS – Gung Ho [A.CHAL REMIX]

Illuminati AMS, is a group out of Amsterdam which consists of DJ Jaziah and models Nianga Niang & Naleye Junior.  They tap A.Chal to prescribe their current single “Gung Ho,” a mix of mollys chased with lean.  Sounds like a #BallroomRiots special to me.
