Monthly Meds December 2011 by DJROYALE

“This month I decide to go all out with Moombahton. If you’re unfamiliar, its a fairly new niche genre taking elements from Reggaeton, Latin, Electronic and more. Most tracks have some serious groove on the drums but can sample various styles and sounds. Some of the tracks I’ve included range from club bangers to poolside chillen. Enjoy”

Before he ripped into the twin circles he stopped by TimeBomb Clothing which was very instrumental in the success of hip hop artists such as Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller, as well as a stop by Ya Momz House Studios for a beat session.

NYE and Exploring Beirut

January 2, 2012 bonics

First of all after a crazy night in Beirut I woke up at 7am and projectile vomited at least 3 times.  I don’t know if it was the food, the travel, the partying, just a bug, but I felt like SHIT! But mentally I knew I needed to hang in there and enjoy Lebanon.  Besides, when is the next time I’m gonna be in Lebanon.  So me and Mo Beatz woke up at 11AM after going to bed at 6am and surveyed Beirut before heading out to Faraya for our NYE’s celebration.  I seriously was sick as shit rolling around the city. I got to see Pigeon rock , the beaches of Beirut (I puked while looking at this beautiful site) and we even checked out the main gov’t square where they had this statue with bullet holes in it from past wars. Beirut is BEAUTIFUL.  It’s a wild mix of modern buildings with buildings that have been destroyed by war.  It’s ironically a beautiful thing. The people are amazing and so friendly.  I didn’t have a problem communicating because many of the Lebanese speak English.

We had to Dj in a Hotel Ski Resort Club on a mountain called Faraya on the way there we stopped by one of the “almost” 7 wonders of the world  “Jieta Groto”  is the “Lebanese national symbol and a top tourist destination (Wiki).”  It’s like crystal cave on crack.  You are not allowed to take pictures in it. So I don’t know how the picture below got on my blog.  ;P

We eventually made it to Faraya.  I still felt like shit. Took some advil and went in on the decks.  The party was AMAZING!!! The crowd was with me every minute!  We counted down together to 2012 and the place exploded.  I played Party Rock at midnight and soon followed with some WIZ of course.  Mo Beatz followed after and continued to slay the dance floor with big sound.  People were trashed. It was so much fun. Lot of cig smoke tho… lol

Thanks to HADI, WALID, KARIM, and everyone else who helped all this happen.  I feel as if i have family out there now!  For those who have certain stereo types about Lebanon you are wrong!  It’s a beautiful place with beautiful people!

THANK YOU LEBANON!!!!!

Wow! Let me just tell you this, I did no research before coming to Lebanon.  Yes I had some ideas about the country but I didn’t realize how amazing it is.  And I’ve only been here for a few hours. The trip was long.  Getting through customs was short. And it finally came time to see what this city was all about.  I will admit I, along with some of my friends from home had some pretty stereotypical ideas of Lebanon.  But most or if not all were all just ignorant assumptions about what was revealed to me as a beautiful country.  Not so long after landing we ate at a place called Abd El Wahab. Me Mo Beatz and the promoters (now friends) of the NYE party took us to eat some of the yummy Lebanese food. Tabouli, hummous, skewers, Arak (Labanese alcohol), and apple tobacco filled hookah! Yuummmmm…  After the eats we went to check out the world famous trance DJ Armin Van Buuren.  Amazing seeing 10,000 or more people gathering in the name of music.  Especially a country with a war torn history like Lebanon.  What I come to realize that Beirut is a place of LIFE.  The Lebanese are amazing and beautiful people. Check out the pics!  I got a video of Armin’s introduction in a few.

Highlights

  • Meeting Hadid and Walid.  These guys will run the Lebanese nightlife seen very soon.
  • Watching Armin in the VVIP… Yes.. the Very Very Important People… lol
  • Seeing a church and a mosque right across the street from each other.
  • 9 out of ten woman are HOT.  9 out of ten have a nose job (half true.)
  • Hearing Muslim Prayer in the Morning.
  • I’ve never seen as many Lamborghini’s and Ferrari’s in my life.
  • Meeting Ms. Lebanon and her telling me that she saw Wiz and I perform in London.

Big shout to Mix and Absolut for having me and Mo Beatz as guests.

I am currently at Heathrow International Airport in London.

I’ve taken a well needed break from the Blog.  My apologies to all my friends who have been waiting for some fun stuff!  2012 is gonna be a year filled with more surprises and fun.  I can’t wait to take you all on the journey with me! In celebration of another new year, me and the homie DJ Mo Beatz (Big Sean’s) are headed to the Middle East to throw down  for New Years Eve! We are going to play at Starz – Intercontinental Mazaar right outside Beirut, Lebanon!  I haven’t even researched the country or anything!  Just going blindly!  So wish us luck! Say a prayer!  and hope for the best!  We will see you next year!  For some Reason this Gunplay song is playing in my head! hahaha…

MAC MILLER – PARTY ON 5TH AVE (MARVEL & BONICS REMIX)

December 16, 2011 bonics


So in very recent history 2 new things have come to the music game.  Both have made a great impact in many ways but also are still under the radar and have much room for mainstream success.  And I guess it’s coincidence that they both begin with the letter M.  

Moombahton is a genre of electronic dance music which was created by Baltimore’s Dave Nada could simply explained as pitched down Dutch house.  But it’s popularity has opened it up to many different interpretations.  

Mac Miller is a19 year old emcee from the city I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His buzz has grown all year and is ending with a high note with over 144,000 copies sold of his debut album “Blue Slide Park.” 

So what do these things really have in common?  Nothing except for the fact that I thought it would be neat flip his latest single “Party on FIfth” into a Moombahton flavored remix.  After just a few hours of building a basic Moombahton remix I decided to call my Canadian brethren, Freshest DJ, and all round nice guy DJ Marvel to add the bells and whistles to give it that extra love. 

We have a video, the Mp3, and instrumental for your sight and sound pleasures.

Thanks to Dave Nada, Mac Miller, & DJ Marvel for making this all come together by accident.
