I refuse to stop listening to Disclosure’s Settle. Like, I will not. Sorry, not sorry. It’s just real dance music for people who like to cut a rug and I’m BOUT DAT LIFE. So lucky for me (and you!), DC’s Mathias curated this really dope mix that includes a TON of Disclosure tracks and a bunch of other artists in the same vein, including Bondax, Riton, and Gorgon City.
Inspired by London’s Underground, “Underground Sounds Vol. II” was actually chosen to be a featured mix last week on thefuture.fm, where it was displayed alongside sets from EDC Vegas and Camp Bisco, to name a few. COOL, RIGHT?! “Underground Sounds” is just a solid hour of super quality house, deep house, and UK garage tracks that just keep you groovin’ from start to finish. None of that in-your-face, aggressive bass and disorienting wobbles. You know, somethin’ you could take home to your mom.
If you like the sound of all this, make sure you download the mix and check out Mathias when he’s behind the decks anywhere from DC’s Chez Billy and Rock & Roll Hotel to Baltimore’s Ottobar. But to be honest I’m pretty sure his homebase is that one jumbo slice joint on U Street with all the party lights rockin off in it.

I know this might come as a surprise to some of you but, a white southern women was caught making a few racial slurs. What makes it even harder to digest is that it came from Paula Deen, a celebrity chef who’s claim to fame is putting butter on all her food. Not mad at that however, when she got canned from the Food Network last week it started an angry apocalypse of white Americans over 50. For a more in depth article on the Paula Deen situation, CLICK HERE. For now, Enter the Paula Deen fans……. You know how the rest of the world views Americans now as loud mouth, overweight, entitled, god loving cunts? Well, it’s mainly because of the demographic you’re about to meet. After reading through all the hate posts on the Food Networks wall and people defending what she said on Paula Deen’s wall, we were mind fucked of how out of touch these people are. #Merica
THE AGENT: A HOR reader came to us after starting two fake parody accounts on Facebook, one of Paula Deen and another of a fake F00D NETWORK to go back and forth with the angry mob online. Needless to say it worked like a charm. We wanted to give a shout out to this person but in a wise decision asked not have their real name mentioned. This was completely voluntary and not sanctioned or thought of by HOR but we sure as hell found it funny enough to post.
“PAULA DEEN” – Here are screen shot of some responses, replies and messages MESSAGES – the “Paula” account got some fan mail and hate mail. The Grand Finale. THE F00D NETWORK ACCOUNT - This account was the Jimmie Rustler 5000 with the TK421 modification. Angry, mostly hungry Americans posting on the Food Networks wall defending Paula with the “because we’ve all said Nigger before” mindset. Two Things I really don’t get about this next one. #1 Why the fuck does an Anti Obama Kitty exist on Facebook? #2 How the fuck does it have almost 4k likes? What am I doing wrong with my marketing Anti Obama Kitty? HELP me out! THE SHOW PITCH LADY……..There was this one lady who after F00D NETWORK commented on her post, she would not stop sending the parody F00D Network page inbox about her pitching a cooking show since Paula Deen is now on the out. Since this isn’t a real account, the opportunity was there to try and get nudes from her #KenDinnersStyle. Here is the message conversation. There you have it, White America over 50. A land where it’s ok to drop N-bombs just as long as you have a great Southern style, butter heavy chicken parm recipe to back it up.
Don’t be fooled by that super sweet baby face. Swizzymack takes Philly club music to a totally different level. No. Wait. He takes that shit to a whole new planet. One where your heart beats one hunnit times faster and your legs are made of pure elastic so you can really keep up with the rhythms. IT’S THAT SERIOUS, I PROMISE.
Get your cardio on and check out his mix for this past Saturday’s Diplo & Friends. I know – I’m always posting mixes from Diplo & Friends but they’re a great way to get a true idea of what sounds each artist is reppin’ and they’re just that damn good okay. So check the tracklist of this one and you’ll see that the majority of the tunes Swizzymack’s rockin are his very own. IT’S THE REAL DEAL, GUYS. SWIZZYMACK IS THE ANSWER. And as an added bonus, nestled in between his own original productions and remixes are tracks from GTA, Lenkemz, DJ Sliink, Rick Ross, and the like. I know you’re gonna dig this.
If you like what you hear today, he’ll be in DC tomorrow night (6/25) for Trillectro Lite at U Street Music Hall with DJ Sega, Spiccoli, and Selecta! It’s gonna be fast, loud, and turnt. GET OFF THE INTERNET.
I laid to rest any love I had for the NBA last night when the Antichrist James and staff won a second NBA title. Heat fans are easily the worst in all of sports. Even worse than Atlanta Braves fans. First off they support one of the spineless decisions in sports by luring Lebron out of Cleveland and giving him a safe haven to play alongside a Velociraptor and the T-mobile guy. Second, they wear all white to the Arena. Only people who do that are bottle service douche clubs during the Summer. Third and most important, 50%-70% of their total fan base, aren’t even real fans. They’re a collection of Bandwagon jumpers who were rooting for the Cowboys in the 90′s, the Yankees in the 00′s, and the Heat this decade. They are “safe bet fans” and they’re everything that is evil with American sports. The same assholes who were all of a sudden die hard Ravens fans six months ago. To prove who some of these douchebags are, here are some retweets gathered from @RobWhisman. I also recommend checking out his Vine which had me in fucking tears last night.
View Translation: You’re an ass
AND THE WINNER FOR BIGGEST SHIT HEAD FAN IN SPORTS……. Wow, what a magical year that those 3 teams Louisville who hadn’t won since 85, Baltimore since 01 and the Heat of all times repeating all won in the same year and those are your squads. What are the odds?
They should have never gave you Juggalo’s money! Young Tourture Killaz is a “rap” group that reiterates why suburb white kids can’t have nice things, like video cameras and face paint. They put out a music video for a track called “I’ll cut Yo Dick Off”, a more subtle, down tempo track that will make you cringe as much as John Bobbit did at the title. Dr Consequence flying down in the Yolocopter……..
So the First Official HOR Brunch Shitshow was yesterday and I could tell by the illegal amount of Jameson going around and the way Denman was grinding on tables that everybody was feelin’ pretty turnt! G’wan witcho day-drinkin’ selves! Twerk ’til the break of dawn!
Anyway, here’s something a bit more low key for ya since I figure the majority of yall are feelin’ the struggle today. Here’s the latest installment of Fact Magazinet’s mix series featuring an hour long trip curated by German producer, DJ Koze. Sometimes twinkly, sometimes glitchy, sometimes retro, this mix takes you on a sonic adventure through some of Koze’s favorite releases so far in 2013 – including Herbert, Christian Loffler, Bibio, and a random surprise from Harry Belafonte (which is definitely not from 2013 but it’s okay because it’s a totally welcomed additive to the vibe). Trust me – it’s a great night to settle in with this one. Get your life together!
[I regrettably inform you that there is no tracklist for this mix but they're slowly picking it apart over on the SoundCloud page if you're looking for a specific track!]
The Queen of Mountain Dew, the Sultan of Spam, the Ambassador of bad rapping has once again resurfaced landing on a couch somewhere in Atlanta, GA. You know he’s serious because he went out and got promo photos and videos made. You also know that it would lead to a freshly pressed HOR post. It’s hard for me to say what hasn’t already been said because he’s so bad, his performance is the punchline in itself. You would think for going into hiding for over a year that he used the time to work on his “craft” and get better. Nope. It’s the same Ziplok quality that we have come to love. Here is a youtube video he did in front of hundreds, correction….. a cameraman and a few bartenders at a spot in GA.
Hey remember that “UR a HATA” track? It was one of the few songs that was somewhat catchy production wise before Zip spits on it. Worry not, he reminds you how bad it is, LIVE!
Here’s to another run at Myspace stardom. WITH THAT SAID, You kind of have to give respect where it’s due. Myself and the readers of HOR have yapped at Ziplok for over 3 years now and it’s pretty much a wrap on what we’ve already said about him. Zippy has stood the test of time and keeps hammering away at it. To be in the HOR crosshairs, still putting forth the effort regardless of how bad we think it is and how broke he stays chasing a pipe dream at 35, Zip keeps going and at this point, he’s at least entertained us for a long ass time.
In the 3 plus years HOR has been live, we have come across some interesting people during our internet travels. Everyone from pissed Myspace rappers, club promoters, DJ’s, photographers, and that one Elvis impersonator. Since part of the site does poke fun and call people out for some the less talented things they do, obviously we get some push back from those people we talk about. Thats totally expected and not surprising in line with what we do. However, we are really good at what we do so for the people we talk about on here, it really gets under their skin. So what I did was take some of the most heated emails, comments, messages and give you a behind the scenes look at just how angry some people get. Enjoy!
ZIPLOCK BILL THE PHOTO GUY
The under 15 teen fans of the Jolleys were mad but the icing on the cake was the fact their mom kept raging. Calm down kids, it’s just a shitty music review. Mamma Jolley
Pictures? Felony? Aint nobody got time for that
ETA SILVER G
Not gonna lie, I miss the Silver Gman. He hasn’t logged onto to any social media in two years after our Silver G post. His meltdowns were legendary. Looking back at these is like seeing the writings of a famous author. Each line of rage outdoing the next. He would send me messages and would make himself more angry as the messages kept coming in. Just like the Elvis he sought out to be, he is truly the KING of HOR.
“I have the right to bear arms”
Thats the best of the best. There are hundreds to pull from but these were without a doubt my all time favs. People should realize that this is just a corny blog that makes dick jokes and finds off the wall shit to talk about. It’s never been that serious. Relax people and enjoy the LuLz.
KW Griff ft. Porkchop – “Bring In the Katz” (.rar Kelly Remix)
SUP DUDES. I took a tiny hiatus from mixtape hunting but I’m back and I hope you’re ready to turn the fuck up. Philly DJ/producer, Dev79, just dropped his Street Bass Bootlegs 3 compilation and it’s totally off the chain. Like, it’s gonna turn your ho hum Saturday cookout into a wild weekend rager – trust me. You’re not even gonna know what hit ya.
Not only did Dev79 include a rack of his own original productions and remixes in the compilation, but he also recruited other producers like Starkey, .rar Kelly, and Distal to remix everything from Ciara to Mike Jones to Danny Brown. Tons of boom baps and bone rattling bass to scratch that itch for ya.
Get your god damn life together and download this mixtape. Don’t act like I never did anything for you. See ya next week!

Our second installment of HOR Sessions is gonna get fuckin wild with Baltimore’s favorite DJ Jewo, the Jedi dick slingers from Dicksquad, RACECARBED. Bagel and Stanley have been throwing down high energy sets for a couple years landing them at some the premier venues such as U Street Music Hall while playing at some of the most hype parties from New York (Kat face Party), to Philly (Mad Decent Mondays), and holding it down in their hometown of Baltimore (part of Dicksquad)
