Matt McGuire Shows Skrillex & Rick Ross What's Up!

Monday - Jan 16, 2017 Talent

When the Skrillex & Rick Ross single Purple Lamborghini came out, I couldn't stop listening to it.  The video was cool with tons of visually appealing swagadelic bossness.  Rick Ross did his thing (I love how much he lays back on the beat). But it was Skrillex with his drum production and arrangement that once […]

Super Smash Bros Musical Melee - Jazz Drum Improv

Saturday - Nov 12, 2016 Talent

I don't know what it is with musicians and this game.  I've never played it but I know a ton of dudes who miss rehearsals and are late to gigs constantly over this Super Smash Bros nonsense. I mean, I'm sure it's cool, but it's no Marvel vs. Capcom. Funnily, the main culprit who is […]

This is his logo: As we all know, breaking into the music business is no easy task.  I'm always impressed to see people using their creativity and ingenuity to carve a unique path for themselves, thereby sidestepping all of the competition. Making awesome remixes […]

I had never heard of the Chapman Stick or the Stickman before I was goofing around on Indi.com where they host all kinds of musical challenges (with cash prizes!). There was a contest going on for best solo instrumentalist.  Usually these end up going to someone playing the piano or the guitar, but... The winning […]
