Rihanna's "Unapologetic" Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | November 25, 2012

It is missing a “We Found Love” but otherwise is the equal of any electro-pop that doesn’t have G-Dragons name on it. I mean, going to Rihanna for sincerity is like going to a hooker for true love. It isn’t what they are selling.

Madonna's US Leg Of World Tour 2012 Setlist

By Iman Lababedi | August 31, 2012

The Madonna set sounds pretty by the numbers and godforbid she throws in “Lucky Star” or “Material Girl”, right? Instead it is a steady diet of ecstacy and agony with way too much preaching and nowhere near enough popitutde.

Boys Noize XTCatic

By Iman Lababedi | August 8, 2012

I’ve seen quite a bit of dance music since then but I still love the guy. He is playing the Electric Zoo Fest at Randalls over the Labor Day weekend and in October will be pushing his third album with a full band and a new album.

The 30 Richest DJs In The World

By Alyson Camus | June 14, 2012

DJs are kind of a joke for me, they get all the glory and all the cheerleaders for spinning records, and if some can be creative, most of them are so overrated it’s not even funny!

Pitbull ft Chris Brown "International Love" Reviewed

By Helen Bach | March 24, 2012

The whole “Mr 305”, fake laugh, studly stance just kills me every time. This dude has more confidence in his machismo than Chuck Norris. Yet I love his music, because it is so cheesy.

Can Dance Survive Without A Lead Singer?

By Iman Lababedi | January 3, 2012

From Jack of the Cosmonauts thru Wade of KiLR, all the way to Jagger, Daltry, Bono, the lead singer of a rock band sets the tone and leads the band and it is just about impossible to have a great band without a great lead singer.

Whither Dance In 2012?

By Iman Lababedi | December 28, 2011

At a rave, the audience consuming the music, they are using it for their own distinct ends. Dance, drugs, sex. They are not watching James Brown, they are listening for beats and feeling their heart beats race and their movements, the expression freedom of letting go but controlled. They are the stars.

Swedish House Mafia At Madison Square Garden, Friday, December 16th, 2011

By Iman Lababedi | December 18, 2011

They sold out MSG in ten minutes of presale. And the audience were berserk, a truly fun buncha kids, who were like dayglo hippies on ecstacy instead of weed, and dancing up a storm. I, myself, who only white man dances, felt moved to shake it. But it wasn’t a “concert”. It was a DJ set.

Wolfgang and Will.i.am

By Kyle Cannon | April 24, 2011

general consensus seems to be that listeners aren’t irritated that the original contains vocals, but rather who wrote and sings the obnoxious, repetitive, and unoriginal lyrics. Let’s party all night long. Let’s make it last forever
