Local Filmmaker C.R. Sten Garcia Looking to Take Grand Prize in New Film Competition

For a while now, people have been grumbling about the Miami International Film Festival and how it really has not been doing what it should be doing; piquing interest. In recent years, the festival has really been lackluster. To me, the selection and the experience itself has always felt like it was catering to its high profile supporters as opposed to the actual spirit of filmmaking and the people that live, eat, sleep and dream film. We all love the fact that the festival exists, don’t get... Read More →

The New: New Lineup and Newly Signed, Too!

It’s a blustery Sunday afternoon in Hialeah and I am sitting inside Sacred Sound Studios with the four ladies from The New. For those of you who are already fans of this femme, pop-rock group, you are probably wondering why I said four and not five ladies. Well, the ladies inform me as we sit to chat that there have been some lineup changes and that there will be a new guitar player in the group soon.  For some bands, losing a member would be catastrophic, but not for these seasoned... Read More →

[Ocean Frontin' Radio]: Episode #55, OVERTHROW DJs and MISS ANGELINA

Well, here we are at the last week of a very eventful 2010 and while EVERY week of Ocean Frontin’ Radio has been exciting and amazing, LAST WEEK was off the hinges. DJ A-Train did his thing blasting some of the hottest old school hip hop around, MC Punch3nello tore the mic up, but to me, the real star of the night was Dj GetLive. He brought the boogie all the way from NYC and it was so live and so hard that people probably have not recovered. If you missed it or if you just want to listen... Read More →

Now that all the gift-giving anxiety about what to get your best-friend, co-worker, or any other hyphenated next of kin is over, the next cause for panic is New Year’s Eve. Admit it. You’ve stood in front of the closet, an hour before the party started, and uttered the words: “What do I wear?” Granted some of us are retentive planners and compulsive to-do list makers, who already have an outfit with complementary accessories ready and... Read More →

Album Review: ‘Redman Presents…Reggie’

It was the early 90′s, during my middle school lunch break when a Haitian friend handed me the cassette tape that would change my life forever. I can still remember the first time I heard it. I put it on my boombox as soon as I got home. On it were songs from Wu-Tang Clan, Notorious B.I.G., Mobb Deep and more east coast hardcore rappers. The content of the music was beyond my understanding at that time but I couldn’t stop listening to that tape. There was this one particular song that... Read More →

R.I.P. Fernando Rafael Heria, Jr.

Sadly, for the second week in a row at Antisteez,we have been hit with the news of yet another great person being taken from us just way to soon. Early Monday morning we lost a person known to most as one of the friendliest and enigmatic members of the South Florida cycling community. I did not know Ferny extremely well, but I can tell you that on the rides andbeers weshare, Ferny was always cracking jokes and making those around him feel very welcome.

Happy Birthday to the Antisteez podcast. And to celebrate todays podcast we have none other than J Dilla jumping out of our cake. I pitched the idea to Jorge from Bang The Box a few weeks back and he was beyond excited to get me a serious list of songs for Guilletine to put together. We went ahead and decided to go with tracks that many of you didn’t know were produced by Jay Dee. Trust me, there will be more Dilla podcast to come up in the future. I can come up with a few themes based off... Read More →
