    We Attended Snoop Dogg’s Listening Party for His New Album BUSH Last Night…

We Attended Snoop Dogg’s Listening Party for His New Album BUSH Last Night…

On Wednesday night, G-LIFE was blessed with the opportunity to be among the first to preview Snoop Dogg’s upcoming album, BUSH. Executive produced by none other than Pharrell Williams, BUSH is set to drop early Summer 2015.

In an intimate Hollywood venue completely decorated with various shrubbery, invited guests were able to hear brand new tracks such as So Many Pros, This City, R U A Freak, and the previously released Peaches N Cream. The absolute standout (and reportedly next single) was a track titled California Roll, which elicited the most lively response from the crowd by far.

Following the album preview, Snoop joined the bush-filled stage for an interview about the process behind creating his new album, as well as his long-term artistic relationship with Pharrell. In his own words, Snoop described the vibe of the album as “The funkosphere reconnecting with the mothership”, which accurately depicts the futuristic funk, soul, and disco grooves layered within Pharrell’s innovative production.

Pharrell will helm production on each of the tracks on BUSH, but Snoop admitted that he also turned over the reigns to Pharrell on the entire visual approach to the album. This has allowed Snoop to focus solely on the inspiration laid forth by Pharrell’s production, and afforded him the opportunity for ultimate artistic expression.

The quote of the night came when Snoop was asked to explain the album title, to which he laughed and replied “Well I love trees, I love grass…and I love bush!”

Additional topics discussed included Snoop’s keynote speech at SXSW, a series in development with HBO for a […]

Trash Talk Live in LA @ The Echoplex

On Friday night, Trash Talk tore through LA’s Echoplex on the last date of their Check Yo Ponytail tour. With a stacked lineup and a frenzied crowd, the show certainly delivered. So. Many. Stagedives.

Joining Trash Talk on the mixed bill were hip-hop group Ratking, producer/DJ Lee Bannon, and rock act Together Pangea, creating a diverse lineup that served to bring together an audience that otherwise might not end up at the same show on a Friday night.

Throughout Trash Talk’s set, the mixed bill concept was expounded upon by frontman Lee Spielman, as a fresh approach to uniting different tastes and demographics under the guise of experiencing something new. Its a great idea we regularly see used on mixed bill festival lineups, but applies just as well to a more intimate club show.

Always a pleasure seeing the Trash Talk guys in concert! Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for their next live events at TrashTalkHC.com! Check below for the full gallery! (more…)

    Converse Rubber Tracks Presents: Com Truise and A-Trak 2/6/15 at the Echoplex, Los Angeles

Converse Rubber Tracks Presents: Com Truise and A-Trak 2/6/15 at the Echoplex, Los Angeles

On Friday night, G-LIFE had the pleasure of attending an event presented by the Converse Rubber Tracks program, featuring Body Language, Com Truise, and A-Trak.

It goes without saying that the performances were fantastic. Body Language set the mood properly followed by Com Truise, who ignited the Friday night crowd with his signature bass and synth-heavy experimental style that honestly stole the show. The Echoplex is an ideal atmosphere for this kind of sound.

Headliner A-Trak utilized the performance as an opportunity to let loose with a well-deserved fun, relaxed, and off-the-cuff set. He even started things off by saying:

“I’m going to play a set like I’m by myself in my bedroom just having fun. I have literally no idea what I’m going to play next.”

In the end A-Trak thanked the crowd while dedicating the release of creative energy to his late friend and co-founder of Fools Gold records, Dust La Rock, who passed away just days earlier.

During a week jammed with countless Grammy rehearsals, packed schedules, staunch critics, and a frantic need for perfection, A-Trak’s call to let our hair down and celebrate life was a welcome relief.

Now onto the larger cause behind the show…For those unfamiliar with Rubber Tracks:

    Snoop Dogg and Friends Pre-GRAMMYs Party ft Diplo, Skrillex, Warren G, Too Short, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Chaka Khan, and More!

Snoop Dogg and Friends Pre-GRAMMYs Party ft Diplo, Skrillex, Warren G, Too Short, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Chaka Khan, and More!

Grammys Week was in full swing last night as Levi’s hosted the much buzzed about “Snoop and Friends Pre-Grammy Party” at the Hollywood Palladium. Set to feature multiple special guests, including a mysterious “surprise DJ set”, rumors abounded throughout the day as to who may take part.

As both fans and the industry-elite filed into the Palladium, their eyes lit up as the surprise DJ was revealed to be none other than Diplo, who set the mood properly with a raucous opening set.

_S1A8702

As if a surprise Diplo set to open the night wasn’t enough, a massive JACK U graphic appeared behind Diplo as Skrillex emerged on stage. The two proceeded to take the crowd through aelectro-infused history lesson in West Coast hip-hop, much to the delight of the now packed LA audience. A live remix of Warren G and Nate Dogg’s Regulators? Yes please.

_S1A8677

After Jack U left the now massive crowd completely amped up, it was time for the Doggfather himself to take the stage.

_S1A8776

Snoop and his live band, 1500 Or Nothing, appeared just after midnight, to none other than a live instrumental rendition of “California Love”. Snoop wasted little time as he broke into all of his classics including Nuthin But […]
