BWOMP BEATS! – Dubstep, Glitch Hop, Bass Music, Remixes » Blog Archive » Hidden Gem #2: NiT GriT Dioptase I’m not really too sure how much of a hidden gem you can say NiT GriT is. I mean, I recently stumbled across him in one of those “oh wow hey look at this neat artist I randomly found” nights, so I’d say he qualifies, but the boy has more Soundcloud comments than possibly anyone I’ve ever seen. And for damn good reason. NiT GriT shows that dark can still be melodic, that grimey can still be amusing, and that sometimes it’s alright to just drop a fucking filthy rager of a track. By sometimes, I guess I mean everytime, as there really isn’t anything that I’ve heard from him that hasn’t caught my ear.
Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival Coordinates: The festival's origins trace back to a 1993 concert that Pearl Jam performed at the Empire Polo Club while boycotting venues controlled by Ticketmaster. The show validated the site's viability for hosting large events, leading to the inaugural Coachella Festival being held in October 1999 over two days. After a sojourn in 2000, the festival returned on an annual basis, beginning in April 2001 as a single-day event before reverting to the two-day format in 2002. The festival was expanded to a third day in 2007 and eventually a second weekend in 2012. Organizers began permitting spectators to camp on the grounds in 2003.

Preferred Music Style Is Tied to Personality | Psych Central New research from around the world suggests that an individual’s favorite music genre is closely linked to his or her personality. Professor Adrian North of Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK, has undertaken the largest study so far of musical tastes and personality type.
