Reserving transportation for your Miami concert is the best way to ensure the night ends safely for everybody, especially if you happen to be drinking. With a limousine or party bus, it’s easy to get the group in one place to meet up. Plus, it’s just as affordable as a ride share when you split the overall cost with all of the concert goers. There’s a clear difference in the overall experience, though. Party buses specifically offer the room to stand up and socialize while you’re on the streets of Miami. Plus, they have hypnotic multi colored lighting like you find in the night clubs, and a sound systems with the ability to stream your favorite music. It’s clear how you’ll be able to benefit from a reservation the next time you want to enjoy nightlife in Miami. Head over to miamipartybus.com for more information!

[Project Review] That Man Santiago – Nightlife Fifty-Five

Nightlife Fifty-Five (Front)


that man santiago 1[CHICAGO, IL] After working over a year to finalize, That Man Santiago has recorded and mixed his latest project Nightlife Fifty-Five at Soundscape Studios. Embracing his environment, the inspiring upcoming artist from Chicago created an honest project on a person’s thoughts before and after hitting the night life in their city. The ambience of Nightlife Fifty-Five definitely provides those night vibes.

According to That Man Santiago “During the length of the tape I travel between thoughts of “turning up” and not worrying about the consequences, to thinking about the repercussions of my actions. The tape touches upon the idea that we are all filled with contradictions; however those contradictions are what help us learn and grow as people.” Now let’s take a chill pill and ride out with my review on That Man Santiago’s project Nightlife Fifty-Five. I’ll be discussing my favorites off the eleven track project. Which are:

that man santiago[NIGHTLIFE] Where we start off with this track, if feels like you’ve been dancing at the club, already about 2:30am. The music sets a seductive vibe while That Man Santiago sets the mood for his club banger, while he’s talking to the girl he wants to take home.

[SNOW TRACKS] At the beginning of the track we get the weather news report that discuss the heavy snow that we’ll be arriving throughout the night, expected 10 feet of snow. Too cold to go outside and too much snow to deal with. That Man Santiago lets you know what he’s up to on this winter track.

[WHAT DO YOU KNOW] On this track That Man Santiago gets a bit rough when he finds out someone’s talking when they don’t know nothing about him. He’ll laugh it off at the beginning but if it persists he’s going to have to handle his.

[SOME DAYS] I feel that if you’re dealing with a relationship that you find yourself wanting to leave them, fix things, walk away, or stay forever. The emotions of trying to get yourself together and your significant other trying to do the same, but yet the balance may not be right. It’s either work things out or have it all come to an end, but will that day be today?

[OCARINA] At times it feels best to get with the past, with something that’s ocarina-of-time-linkfamiliar. But according to time you just can’t. It’s all about moving forward and staying focus. But it seems to be That Man Santiago is getting distracted by Ocarina. I really felt as if she was real, so I had to ask and look what I found out:

NikkiSiixx: Who’s Ocarina?
That Man Santiago: Ocarina is more of a metaphore than a person. Its based of the game “Ocarina of Time” from Zelda lol. In the game, the Ocarina was a flute that could make a person travel through time. In the song, “Ocarina” stands for me wanting to go back in time and fix things I’ve done. But towards the end of the song, during the second verse, I realize that you can’t move forward when you’re chasing the past.

[REASON (BONUS)] This track actually surprised me considering the overall sound from the previous songs. Surprised me in a very good way. I like how diverse That Man Santiago demonstrates he’s styles and how melodic he can become. And what a romantic! This track is meant for the ladies. This would have to be my favorite track off the entire project.

This concludes my project review on Nightlife Fifty-Five with hip-hop artist That Man Santiago. The project exhibits feelings of emotions when it comes to some affairs that take place at night. It’s kinda like people get influence by the night life and dealing with those problems in the morning. I find the project to have a great story to tell and great listens.

If you’re diggin’ the project as much as I am, please download your copy at THATMANSANTIAGO.COM all you need to do is provide your email address and the tape is yours. Also, follow That Man Santiago on his social media outlets to get an update on what’s coming up next.

Music Video: Neak – The Kids

Screen Shot 2013-06-29 at 8.36.33 PM

With all that’s going on in the world today, some of our emcees have decided to speak out on things in their lyrics. First Kanye West with his Yeezus album, and now a fellow Chicago emcee, Neak. The colorful and vivid visual depictions of Neak’s lyrics come to life courtesy of Aaron Perkins Jr of APJ Films. Rocking with his main main/partner/producer Slot-A, Neak spits that real about how impressionable our youth remain. Popping molly while busting it wide open and making it rain might be what you do, but…

What about the kids, now that they want to try it? Welcome to social awareness in 2013.

The Kids is featured on RA NYC’s  latest mixtape, BRTH A N8TH. You can download the mixtape for free here: http://ra-nyc.bandcamp.com/album/brth-a-n8tn.

Download: King Myers featuring Fred The Godson- We Gon’ Party

WE GON PARTY ARTWORK

Long Island newcomer, King Myers enlists the assistance of Fred The Godson for this party anthem, We Gon’ Party. This gives me a vibe that reminds me of a back in the day Fabolous. This club ready smash should definitely be in rotation at house parties, if not small clubs in the Long Island/NYC area. I’ll sum up what they talk about, popping bottles, bagging models and partying. What is there not to love? And we have the clean version, pshhhh. King Myers is letting us know he’s here to party, and the Godson is coming with him. We can only hope a visual is in the works for this one. Press play, add this to the iPod and make sure you blast this on the way to the next party. Turn up.
