There’s a special place for our readers who enjoy womping. We like to take care of our own here at Sunset in the Rearview, and I have been given the opportunity to film the Pandemonium Fest next Friday, the 25th, at the Congress Theater. Nero will be there, who always bring the womp throughout their sets, as will The New Deal, Conspirato (featuring MARC BROWNSTEIN & ARON MAGNER of THE DISCO BISCUITS with CHRIS MICHETTI of RAQ and MIKE GREENFIELD of LOTUS) as well as many other great groups with really interesting sounds.
I will be working to secure interviews with my favorite groups attending, and will get live footage of the show as well.
I will also be giving away 2 free tickets to the show.
The rules are simple.
To be in the running for tickets, follow @djdprep on Twitter and tweet the following: “I want to win tickets from @djdprep & @sunsetrearview to Womp Fest! http://bit.ly/gz5fWI”
It will be a great show, and I am happy to be able to bring it to you guys on Sunset.
Little twist: if you tweet me something that really catches my interest (favorite song of one of the artists that I’ve never heard and really like, little known fact about one of the artists) I’d be willing to give out one press pass for the best tweet. Let me hear it.
Womp Womp Wednesday is all Nero today-I cannot wait to see them next Friday, they’re absolutely filthy.
1. The Recluse (Nero Remix) – Plan B
Well, this one is just kind of absurd. A really cool vocal track complimented by some absolutely grimy dub wobbles, this one has some really deep, hard hitting drops, cool synths throughout, and a really driving drum and bass line. One of my very favorite Nero songs. Also a big fan of the British rapper, Plan B, that comes in at 2:45. Kind of a sucker for sick rhymes in British accents. IE Tinie Tempah.
2. Me & You – Nero
Let me tell you one thing about womp as a genre. There is a great deal of songs that I would not necessarily listen to if I were hanging out alone, or in my car driving, that I really dig. What may not be great for some situations can be great for others. And let me tell you-play this song in a big party situation or at a dance, and things will start to go nuts. Nero knows how to get the crowd going like few others can.
3. Ghosts n Stuff (Nero Remix) – Deadmau5
While this track may not be altogether very much different from the Mau5’s original, Nero certainly supplies Joel Zimmerman with a little help at the drops. I wouldn’t go as far as to say as this is better than the original, I would say that they are different. Nero certainly puts their own spin on this one, and the outcome is a womper no doubt.
