Dear Parents: STOP DOING DRUGS

I want to take a moment and introduce myself. My name is goobs. I am SUPER irresponsible. I drink. I party. I sleep in late on the weekends…sometimes with a friend…or friends. (And yes, I mean that in the dirtiest way possible.) I eat leftovers for breakfast while listening to rap music and driving to work in my very expensive sneakers. (That I spend ludicrous amounts of money on. Mostly because I spend money on myself all the time because yes…I am also super self-centered and... Read More →

30 Mar

As promised, this week comes a new guest DJ. Ezekiel Angulo decided that we needed a Love/Hate mix, so he was kind enough to make one for us. Track listing is on point. Check out what he had to say about it. “This playlist is for the ups and downs of the love rollercoaster. Through the power of music we find ourselves relating to people we have never met and yet we find comfort in knowing that we are not alone. So cheers to the good, the bad and everything in between when it comes to love.... Read More →

A World Music Celebration

       Since ’03 The Rhythm Foundation has brought us a magical merge of club and culture: The Heineken TransAtlantic Festival. Our city knows plenty about clubs and is rich with cultures, however there’s often a disconnect between the two. Miami-based non-profit cultural organization, The Rhythm Foundation, noticed this valley separating World music and people. The festival will introduce you to music from the Atlantic rim including... Read More →

Afrika Bambaataa: Legendary, and quite boring.

Like I hyped you all up in this POST, something epic (Or not.) happened last night at the Vagabond. Afrika Bambaataa came to rock the one-and-two’s for all of us locals. Afrika Bambaataa: Legendary, and quite boring. And for most of us die-hard hip-hop heads, this was all set up to be a moment in history. The Godfather of break beats and the Dondadda of the music we hold dear was going to be THIS close to us. He was going to show us the roots of hip-hop and the seeds of the movement. I’ll... Read More →

Music Marketing Tips: Music Marketing Online With Twitter

I have failed to mention to a lot of the Steez heads out there that besides posting just about music and mostly the genres of rock and trip-hop, I’m also a musician myself and a certified music marketer with a good background on internet marketing. I’ve received my Master’s Certificate on Songwriting and Music Business on behalf of the Berklee Music Online. I decided for Antisteez that I would share knowledge with you all about how to market your music. Some of this information... Read More →

The Dillinger Escape Plan “Option Paralysis” Review

So I’ve been here for awhile talking about the latest album from The Dillinger Escape Plan, “Option Paralysis”. I finally took the time this week to take a listen and go through all the songs and set the record straight for those fans out there that have been skeptical about them releasing this album on their own label and what not. I would like to say in this instincts that many times when an artist gets totally control of their recording methods along with their creative aspects,... Read More →

All you party people, looking for the perfect beat...head to the Vagabond on Sunday, March 28 and get loose with this legend.

So today, one of THE most-disturbing things of all time happened. I asked someone, “Oh, man! Are you going to check out Afrika Bambaataa at the Vagabond this Sunday?!” and their reply was, “Who is that?” All you party people, looking for the perfect beat...head to the Vagabond on Sunday, March 28 and get loose with this legend. And I almost died. I’m being very serious. I almost died. If you are reading this post and you silently saying to yourself, “For real…who... Read More →

Someone Has A New Set of Undies.

www.miaminewtimes.com stepped up their game a bit this year with a new design and layout for their news site. For those of you sleeping under a rock, (Doing nothing besides reading antisteez…good for you!), Miami New Times is THE “urban” newspaper for Miami-ans. They specialize in the stories that no one else covers. “Drawing on the talents of an accomplished editorial staff recruited from all across the country, New Times has established a reputation for compelling stories... Read More →

Dr. Grigory Perelman: Mathematician and mushroom eater.

Dr. Grigori Perelman (Nicknamed Mathsputin.) represents all that is good about going against the grain. If he wanted to, we would totally make him an honorary member of ANTISTEEZ, because this man is, literally, ANTI the STEEZ. Not only is this mathematician from St. Petersburg, Russia a certified GENIUS, but he also had the chutzpah to tell the world to go suck it when they tried to make him a celebrity overnight. (Yes, that was a Twista reference. I’m so hip-hop!) Dr. Grigory Perelman: Mathematician... Read More →

Trip-Hop Thursdays: New Massive Attack videos for “Heligoland” film project

This Thursdays, I decided to do something a little different. Of course it’s under the spectrum of trip-hop because otherwise it wouldn’t be a Thursday without a little bit of trip-hop. So I’m here to present that you Steez heads out there. As some of you probably know or don’t know there’s been some ongoing talk about a film project for Massive Attack’s latest album, “Heligoland” going on. So while our grateful owner of Antisteez dropped by and shed... Read More →

Ski Beatz – 24 Hour Karate School

Ski Beatz, which should have been one of my Learn Ya’s, because I guarantee most of you don’t even remember him producing “Dead Presidents” on Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt (and 25% of that whole album), is working on “24 Hour Karate School” which, per the tracklisting and features, should be an epic classic for the books. Mos Def, The Cool Kids, Curren$y, Jay Electronica, Jim Jones, Joell Ortiz, Jean Grae….. Dude, you name it. Here’s a few leaks... Read More →
