"Playa del VIBE" BPM Festival 2013 Exclusive: DJ HARVEY

VIBE: What can we expect from your performance at BPM Fest?
DJ HARVEY: One never knows what to expect. I like to plan but not too much. I wanna feel where the crowd wants to go and go with it. But it will be a spectacular mix of modern and classic dance music, disco to techno.
Escape the winter chill this January and start making plans to be straight chillin' at The BPM Festival 2013. "Playa del VIBE," is a your weekly countdown source where you'll find insider 411 from this year's elite offering of electronic scions leading up to the storied Mexican music-a-thon.

Break out the Cervezas, enjoy the break, wait for for the breakdowns, dance to the breakbeats... going down January 4, 2013 - January 13th, 2013 in Playa del Carmen.

This Week on the Decks: DJ HARVEY

Which act are you most looking forward to catching if you have time? Why?
There are a bunch of great DJ's playing the festival. Everyone from Danny Tenaglia (who I thought had just retired), Sven Väth, Carl Cox, Maceo Plex, Damian Lazarus, I'd say there's something for everyone.

BPM Festival means: (INSERT THREE WORDS)!
Bottomless Pit (of) Music or Madness

Best reason you can think of for going to the BPM Festival 2013?
Great DJ's. Great Location. Mayan Ruins. The Mayans have been partying and celebrating life in this area since 2600 BC so there has to be some good ancient party vibes down there for sure.

Tips to surviving all the parties for BPM Festival first timers?
Drink lots of water and pace yourselves, or just throw caution to the wind and sleep when you get home.

Latest or upcoming release we should pay attention to?

I'm putting the final sparkle on my next Locussolus release as I'm being asked these questions. I'm really happy with this one, I might have finally nailed it.

Vic Mensa Covers' 'Zombie' In Honor Of The Cranberries' Dolores O'Riordan

Vic Mensa and his group 93PUNX covered "Zombie" by Irish rock group The Cranberries, in honor of the one-year anniversary of the passing of the group’s lead singer, Dolores O’Riordan.

93PUNX serves as an opportunity for Mensa to perform music outside of his typical hip-hop lane and explore genres more freely. He posted snippets of the track on his Instagram page with the caption, “RIP DOLORES.” Mensa also revealed in a statement the reason why he covered the hit.

“We connected to ‘Zombie’ because we were born from violence,” he said. Dolores O’Riordan died on Jan. 15, 2018. Toxicology reports state that the 46-year-old died from accidental drowning due to alcohol intoxication.

The artwork for the “Zombie” cover features a woman with dripping, bloody fangs, and was created by artist Lucas David. The cover version itself is slowed down, which provides a more mysterious take on the 1994 protest classic.

Mensa released his recent project HOOLIGANS in December 2018, which traverses various thematic landscapes, from mental health awareness to love lost. The EP features Ty Dolla $ign, G-Herbo, G-Eazy, Charlie Wilson and more.

What do you think about the cover? Listen below and let us know in the comments.

City Girls And Cardi B Bask In Their Bootyliciousness For 'Twerk' Video

As it is written, so it must be done, and there's a whole lot of shakin' going on in The City Girls' video, "Twerk."

The video for the Cardi-B-assisted track features some of the finest twerkers the world has to offer, who were encouraged to show off their skills for a contest last year. The winner would receive $50,000. Not only did the winner get "flewed out," the woman with the best skills was highlighted at the end of the visual.

Elsewhere in the video, Yung Miami and Cardi are painted in head-to-toe jungle body paint (Miami as a zebra, and Cardi as a tiger), and are seen on the beach and on a yacht shakin' it with the best of them. They lead the group of dancers through various scenes- all of which do not feature the presence of a man- so they can live their best bootylicious lives in peace and reclaim their sexuality. During JT's verse, the group dances in front of a mural of the incarcerated MC.

The song itself has been streamed over 215 million times, and is featured on the duo's album, Girl Code. The Floridians gained national exposure after being featured on Drake's "In My Feelings," however, hey've proven to be standalone entities in their own right.
