[EP Review] REBEL - Locations

I recently talked to REBEL’s frontman Micke and asked him how the band’s new release, Locations, was coming along. Micke said that he was excited and extremely proud of their work. I honestly didn’t expect anything less from REBEL. But then I got worried when he said that this project’s sound was more mature. When I hear the word “mature” used to describe a band’s sound, I tend to kind of freak out. In my mind, when a band says their sound is mature it means... Read More →

[Antisteez Top 5] Local Albums That You Should Own

South Florida culture is comparable to a sancocho when it comes to music. There are so many past and present influences that you can find any flavor to satisfy your audio pallet. With such an endless amount of music pumping through the streets I wonder how one can get lost within a genre and just stay there. Whether it’s the electronic elite with their drug-laced tunes or the Weezy/Drake autotune takeover of the radio; it just gets boring to me after a while. Luckily that wasn’t the... Read More →

[Antisteez Review]: Action Bronson at EVE on 2.24.12

Since Major Event Marketing announced that burly Queens indie rapper Action Bronson was coming to grace the 305 with his presence, the hip hop scene in Miami has been buzzing with excitement. Until the rapper announced that he was not coming to Miami due to medical complications. “To my fans I just wanted to let u know I am in the Hospital and am possibly going in for Emergency Surgery. Miami I will make it up to you. I apologize deeply and best believe I will make it up to you 100%.”... Read More →

Dubporn Records is where bass and soul peacefully coexist. Mellow harmonies accompanied by steady pounding beats that pulsate and sway by mixing funk, dubstep, future bass, garage and downtempo.

This week we bring you the lowdown what they’ve got in store for... Read More →

[Album Review] Jedi Mind Tricks: "Violence Begets Violence"

Jedi Mind Tricks are underground mainstays in the Hip-Hop world. The core of the group has always been rapper Vinnie Paz and producer Stoupe the Enemy of Mankind.

This is the third J.M.T. album to have Vinnie and Jus trading verses, but now Stoupe’s amazing and intricate production has been replaced.

The Riot Agents & The Art of Not Caring

Chances are that if you’ve been to any national punk shows in the South Florida area, you’ve seen Riot Agents. The list of bands that they’ve shared a stage with reads like a Punk Rock hall of fame inductee list. Agent Orange? Check. The Queers? Check. The Vibrators? Check. Battalion of Saints? Check. The Murder Junkies? Check. Shit, they even opened for HR (the certified batshit-crazy frontman of the legendary Bad Brains) when he made his notorious appearance at Churchill’s... Read More →

22 Sep

  From the start of Kevin Smith‘s career, he’s shown an endless amount of talent and ambition. Even his big studio pictures carry an endearing respect to the art of independent cinema. He is constantly challenging himself by creating characters, stories, settings and themes that most young adults can seemingly relate to. With Clerks, his knack for creating crafty dialogue about relationships, hockey and even Star Wars, turned heads every which way. Being confined to a convenient... Read More →

To you K-Rino fans out there, I’ll admit it; I’m one of the people that first heard him on his three standout verses from the new Canibus album Lyrical Law.
