Max Styler is Back With New EP “Gold / Deep Dreams” Remixes

Since he has appeared on here time and time again, if you need just a tad bit of motivation look no further than the career of Max Styler. If you are working hard and persistent, then you should be able to overcome any obstacle in your path to success. This remix EP is just the latest in what seems the rather diverse catalog that Styler has been creating in the past few months. With plenty of solid support from Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records, this EP is actually a follow up remixes package for two of his title tracks off of the original album.

What is best about remix EPs is that there is such a diversified take on the original tracks that some even surpass the original. The “Gold / Deep Dreams (Remixes)” EP features works from producers Jameston Thieves, Flapo, and Awoltalk; who each provide a different style of Styler’s original tracks “Gold” and “Deep Dreams”. Over here at MiR our favorite has to be Jameston Thieves’s remix of “Gold”, as it feels the biggest departure from the original. Also, we are suckers when we find some proper use of traditional Eastern beats/instruments. Fantastic outro and a solid remix EP overall.

Make sure you give Max Styler’s “Gold / Deep Dreams (Remixes)” EP a full listen below:

The Fate of the Furious: Just Fun, Ridiculous, Bulls**t

THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS

DIRECTED BY: F. Gary Gray

STARRING: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Scott Eastwood, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kurt Russell, Charlize Theron

GENRE: Action

YEAR: 2017

COUNTRY: United States

Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game-and the rest of the crew has been exonerated-the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, the elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage… and to bring home the man who made them a family.

Alright…let me take a deep breathe before I dive into this. The Fate of the Furious is exactly what you would expect from a Fast and the Furious franchise. The action is absolutely ridiculous, with plenty of moments that are over the top in that FnF style. This time though, the ensemble cast of The Fate of the Furious actually look like they are actually having fun. This was a major problem with the last few films in the franchise, as it just seems like each member of the cast was there just to earn the paycheck. But, as always, the soundtrack is just fantastic and upbeat. There is so much life in the music that it wraps of the film in a nice bow.

This needs to be a buddy-cop movie ASAP

However, The Fate of the Furious is exactly what you would expect from a gigantic, dumb, action movie. While the moments are epic and crazy on a scale that really shouldn’t be measured, most of those moments are complete bullshit. Let’s talk about the obvious one shown in the trailer, with Dwayne Johnson throwing the torpedo. Since they obviously couldn’t show the whole scene in the trailer, DJ is able to handle driving a large truck (with very little help from Tyreese) and scoop up the torpedo as it skids across the ice. He even throws it at the pursuing enemies, killing many in the process. That moment had almost our entire team yelling BULLSHIT in unison.

PROS:

  • Plenty of dumb action.
  • Entire cast chemistry.
  • Sexy cars as always.
  • Lit soundtrack.

CONS:

  • Way too many bullshit moments.
  • Storytelling.

SCORE: 6.0 / 10

MUSIC ENHANCED: Cuebrick Ft. KARRA “Smoke & Fire”

At some moments the best kind of music can be created when a professional and fresh talent collaborate. Both members of the Enhanced Recordings label, we take a listen to the first collaboration between iconic Enhanced producer Cuebrick and Enhanced regular KARRA. This release is just another mark in their respective catalogs, as both artists have had a busy year so far. KARRA was featured on a number of successful hits in 2016 with Breathe Carolina, Metrik, and Unlike Pluto. Cuebrick hasn’t been quite though, as he has gained support from many EDM powerhouses such as Tiesto and Armin van Buuren.

However, “Smoke & Fire” is definitely a showcase of Cuebrick’s wide range of abilities. Featuring the vocal talents of performing artists KARRA, the track is intricate in design and flows between different levels with ease. As it flows you can hear the differences in genre and style, which only showcases Cuebrick’s raw ability to be able to take the best elements from multiple genres and mash them together. Whether it is as simple as the percussion or the intricacy of expert vocal work, Cuebrick can definitely make some magic.

Make sure you give “Smoke & Fire” a listen below:
