Boare - "playdatshit"

The world is in the midst of an electronic music renaissance, and you find most of this boon of producers laying claim to the club-friendly, bass-dropping variety, holing up in the the free-flowing world of hip-hop beatmaking or pitching their tent on the out-there, boundary-pushing EDM camp.

Manmade Objects - Monuments

No one wants to be forgotten; everyone wants some sort of legacy, a mark they leave behind as they exit this life for whatever lies beyond.

And for as long as there has been death, there have been monuments — whether austere or understated, abstract or concrete, prominent or tucked away in private — erected by the ones they loved to assure that remembrance, at least for a time.

Admirals - Amidst the Blue

Sometimes it helps to not be very good.

It appears that Jones’ final public concert was staged in Oklahoma. A Feb. 19 date with Thackerville’s WinStar World Casino is the most recent show listed on the late singer’s website. It’s not yet confirmed that Jones played another public concert between the show at WinStar and his passing.

“Davy Jones provided our patrons with a quality experience each time he performed. We will miss his passion for entertaining on our stage,” said Brian Zanazanian, senior marketing manager at WinStar World Casino. “Our condolences are sent to his family and loved ones.”
