O. Children – Ruins

ochildren

fuckin great. any band on a label called DEADLY RECORDS can chill with us. we were psyched on these guys back in october and, ladies and gentlemen, we are still psyched. do o children sound a bit like nine million other bands? maybe. but dudes can write pretty bitchin melodies & pretty bitchin guitar hooks. right, anyway, we’re big fans and we expect more awesome shit in the near future from these weirdos.

b3sci MIXTAPES: Darkchild

darkchild

b3sci mixtapes: darkchild. for three years between 1998 to 2000, producer rodney “darkchild” jerkins was on total absolute fire. during that period jerkins hit the top 10 of the billboard hot 100 7 times (including 4 No. 1’s). i mean, seriously, “the boy is mine”, “say my name”, “if you had my love”, “angel of mine”……just a crazy run. i’ve always been drawn to darkchild’s production style (dude could put me up on a toni braxton song.) ….the mix of acoustic guitar, the subtle multi-layered rhythms, the keyed countermelodies, and the just killer (and usually pretty interesting) chorus hooks. the guy still puts out big records, in ’08 he had a top 10 hit with the pussycat dolls “when i grow up” and did much of the production on janet jackson’s “discipline” record. right so lets go, darkchild ’99.
