Brokechella Ft. Chippy Nonstop

Recently, we posted about Brokechella lineup and what to expect,  but we have just got word that Chippy Nonstop has been added to the Brokechella lineup. Chippy Nonstop is not the conventional rapper, but has created a natural brand that is worthy of praise. In my opinion a fresh take on female rapping with a very unique style, and a live performance you must see. Her performances are energetic and have been known to bring out the rump shaking side out of girls and boys alike. We recently spoke to Chippy, and had a few questions for her.

Word on the street is you're working on an album? How has the process been for you and what can we expect from this release?

Chippy: Hi! How are you? Yes, I am working on an album. It's taking longer than I anticipated. LOL. It's weird, because I make music really fast and release it fast so holding on to music gives me so much anxiety, but it's fun, just working on music and not playing that many shows I guess. I'm just excited to finish it, put it out and tour. It's going to be really refined compared to my old stuff. A lot of pop sounding tracks, but also a lot of interesting, different tracks. It's going to be a full rounded fun album with some surprising elements of songs with actual depth and content. I think all my old songs don't really have any substantial content or a message other then like ; ' I don't give a fuck let's just have fun' which is a good message, but when working on an album I wanted to be more personal, vulnerable and maybe even make slight impact if I can.

We noticed you have been partying with Kreayshawn lately, can we expect one of your music videos directed by Kreayshawn?

Chippy: I mean, I haven't really been partying with Kreayshawn lately, we went to Skrillex Birthday party, but that was the extent of the partying. But she is a really close friend of mine and I love her. I think I'm going to get her on a song on the album, I like working with her a lot and with friends in general. I really want her to do one of my videos for the album for sure. 

You have said that you cook Tandoori Chicken. Are you a secretly talented chef?

Chippy: Lmao! Well...my mom is literally the best cook ever. She forced me to learn how to cook a bunch of stuff before I moved out. I wouldn't really say I am a talented chef, but I mean I can cook a pretty good meal. 

Swizz beats had begun to follow you on twitter, what artist has got you the most excited because they started to follow you on twitter?

Chippy: Skrillex. LOL

Finally Verified was a huge success and Bang Bang was a standout track on the EP, what inspired that track?

Chippy: I don't know if 'Finally Verified' was a huge success, but thanks. Bang Bang is my favorite track on the album. I don't I had been going into the studio with Felix for a while and he just played that beat for me, because he knew I liked 'ethnic' sounding beats, so he played that. I always say that when I like someone I would literally do anything for them, theres not much depth to that song. I like reggeaton and I guess I'm a self proclaimed 'ride of die chick' in the song. Lol 


You recently remixed a Reggeaton song titled Rakata by Wisin and Yandel, what made you decide to go in that direction and are their future projects to be on songs with dem bow beats?

Chippy:Um...Basically I just got a new microphone in my room and I wanted to record something and I just like that song. It wasn't really something I over thought. I'm just obsessed with that song and I made it. So far there aren't any reggaeton-ish sounding stuff. 
I might try to sneak one in there though..Lmao . 


You will be performing at Brokechella, what can a new fan expect from your performance?

Chippy: I would like to think that my live show is the best part of me, as an artist. If you didn't 'understand' me before after seeing my live show and how much I care about it, how much it excites me and how much I put into it, I feel like if you don't understand why I am doing this after watching me live, you probably just have no heart...lol. My live show is something I put everything into and I hope that's transparent to people even if they don't really like the music, they appreciate my energy. 

You will be on the same bill with the M|O|D crew at Brokechella, how has it been performing and partying with the M|O|D crew?

Chippy: Well I'm dating one of them, so we are all mostly really close...... lol...hope he doesn't kill me for saying this......*oops*  They are all amazing and extremely talented people though and I've grown really close with them. I really hope this year they thrive as much as they deserve to, they are literally one of the best people and talented producers I've been around...and trust me I've been around A LOT. 
Anything you want to tell your fans?

Chippy: Love you! <3 and stay happy and positive, even though I always have a hard time staying at a positive energy, I will always try to bring myself up for my fans and always keep making music and thriving for them and myself. <3
Luv xoxo Chip

Brokechella

These days musical festivals have become huge and grown to many different events. Coachella is one of the biggest events and has expanded to two weekends. Seems these days that only the wealthy can afford Coachella, and at a price that almost hits $400, there has to be a better alternative. Thankfully, if your in the Los Angeles area and have $20 you can experience a festival at a fraction of the price of Coachella. Brokechella is your solution to good music, memories, and food. The lineup is stacked with great talent from the Hip Hop Stage, DJ Stage, and bands stage. Let's not even forget the many comedians who are also on board for the fun. I honestly can't find something as culturally relevant and organic as Brokechella in Los Angeles. Amazing artists will be rocking all the stages. From picking which food truck to eat at and which stages and artists to see, it can be a little overwhelming in an awesome way. So make sure to get your Broke Pass [HERE]

Here's some tunes you can expect to hear at Brokechella:

Young Thug - Danny Glover (2Deep x Hammo Sung Remix)

artworks-000072211869-8mbmxh-t500x500 
It goes without saying that Danny Glover track goes hard, but we can't always do trap hands. Sometimes we want to dance to these Trap bangers. So 2DEEP and Hammosung have collaborated to make a Moombahton remix of this this Trap anthem. You here synths that get you grinding and sounds that are reminiscent of Moombah sounds. That Dembow rhythm is the key to it all and keep the vibe turn up friendly. Follow Hammo Sung: Facebook | Twitter

Jersey Club Music


Jersey Club is just a hard ass niche genre right now. Many people from the Trap and Moombahton communities are catching on, and has received love on some major electronic music labels. You can only expect more from Jersey Club and the authentic culture it comes from. I just hope that it is respected and not raped like so many other music scenes that come from minority cultures. In the meantime we can enjoy some great tunes and here is some tunes that you will enjoy!

Double Cross Ft. Falcons [Event Review]

_DSC0556
The Los Angeles Music Scene: Double Cross Event review
The Electronic music scene is very interesting. On any given night there will be an event with artists playing at the major clubs in Downtown Los Angeles, a small bar or club event with some obscure artist, or a DIY style club with bass heavy producers and DJ's. I recently attended an event thrown by local collective Brownies & Lemonade, and i was impressed at what i saw. I'm an Angeleno (Born and live in Los Angeles) and i decided to check out the local event, and performing that was Falcons; An artist with an emphasis on Chill house, downtempo, Bass, and R&B sounds. I throw lots of styles out there cause this guy can't be boxed in due to his unique style and sound. The venue was a very grungy bar that felt like i was in a Russian bar circa 1991. The front bar had a very gothic and gay friendly presence and of course you would hear the classic house tracks and even some darker tunes. The front bar was a great vibe and if you could see the fashion of these people, you would be impressed. No look book can compare to the fashion of DTLA.

  As the second bar and dance area opened up, the music was just on point. Yes, this was an electronic music centered party, but you wouldn't hear Avicii, Swedish House Mafia, or Calvin Harris here. The music started off very good with Garage and Deep house. Then progressed to more urban sounds. The DJ opening for Falcons (Covntry Clvb) was playing Jersey Club, Trap, Chill house, and everything in between. The style and people in this room were of various ethnicities and background. Twerking on certain parts, unusual dance expressions, trap hands and an overall moment of good times shared by all. What really intrigued me was the Jersey Club music being such a hit at this spot. The real connectedness that everyone shared was deep and as temperatures were rising in the dance floor, the party became even more live.

 As Falcons began to perform, he opened up with some rap tracks and nicely mixed in his tracks, and i remember even hearing a sweater beats track. The bass was strong, and the vibe was right. Everything was on point with Falcons set. He dropped some great tunes and even got a good part of the female population to either grind on someone or tweak all over. I noticed two girls went up to him while playing, and not to request a song but take pics and offer him a drink. The crowd was appreciative of the art, and at the same time everyone having fun. This party is a perfect reflection of the thriving music scene in Los Angeles, and also helps to cement the idea that Los Angeles is king when it comes to music. Special S/O to Brownies & Lemonade for throwing the event.
