User Rating:  / 1

MTV's hit dance competition, "America's Best Dance Crew (ABDC)," has become a phenomenon for wannabe dancers in much the same way "American Idol" has lifted the hopes of vocalists around the country.

Capitalizing on ABDC's popularity, local nightclub "Wherehouse" (818 S. Water St.) will host "Milwaukee Meltdown: Dance Crew Competition," a four-week contest showcasing some of the Midwest's best dance teams.

Starting this week, competitions will be held each Thursday night at the club until a winning team is announced at the July 28 finale.

The final round of competition will feature performances by Enigma Dance Kru from Season One of ABDC and Milwaukee native and world traveler, rapper Juiceboxxx.

"Milwaukee Meltdown" begins at 10 p.m. and is hosted by local break dancing specialist "Mijo" of Motion Disorderz Dance Crew - the winner of the 2010 BC1 Red Bull Cypher One Break Dancing Championship. Cover is $7.

  • In the mid-90's, one of the main reasons why Prince changed his name to 'The Artist Formerly Known As Prince" and that unique symbol was his displeasure with his label Warner Brothers.  In 1993, during negotiations regarding the release of Prince's album The Gold Experience, a legal battle ensued between Warner Bros. and Prince over the artistic and financial control of Prince's output. During the lawsuit, Prince appeared in public with the word "slave" written on his cheek. Prince explained his name change as follows: The first step I have taken toward the ultimate goal of emancipation from the chains that bind me to Warner Bros. was to change my name from Prince to the Love Symbol. Prince is the name that my mother gave me at birth. Warner Bros. took the name, trademarked it, and used it as the main marketing tool to promote all of the music that I wrote. The company owns the name Prince and all related music marketed under Prince. I became merely a pawn used to produce more money for Warner Bros... I was born Prince and did not want to adopt another conventional name. The only acceptable replacement for my name, and my identity, was the Love Symbol, a symbol with no pronunciation, that is a representation of me and what my music is about. This symbol is present in my work over the years; it is a concept that has evolved from my frustration; it is who I am. It is my name. (Wikipedia) I guess time does heal all wounds because Prince and Warner Brothers Record have struck a new deal. The new deal will allow Warner Brothers to release unheard material from Prince's vault. It will also give ownership of Prince's master recordings of his classic hits.  Read the full release below: Prince and Warner Bros. Records today announced a new agreement that will see the release of long-awaited, previously unheard material, while giving the artist ownership of the master recordings of his classic, global hits. At the same time, the deal extends Prince's relationship with Warner Bros. Records, through an exclusive global licensing partnership that covers every album released from 1978 into the nineties. The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. For Prince fans worldwide, the new partnership will open a veritable gold mine. The surprise announcement comes just in time for this summer's 30th Anniversary celebrations of the artist's breakthrough album and film, Purple Rain, which were released in 1984. For the first time, Prince will be releasing a digitally re-mastered, deluxe version of this classic album. Other planned projects will follow. Prince said, "A brand-new studio album is on the way and both Warner Bros Records and Eye are quite pleased with the results of the negotiations and look forward to a fruitful working relationship." "Everyone at Warner Bros Records is delighted to be working with Prince once again: he is one of the world's biggest stars and a truly unique talent" said Cameron Strang, Chairman & CEO, Warner Bros. Records. "We are also very excited about the release of new and re-mastered music from one of his greatest masterpieces." A couple of days after this announcement, Prince released a new single on Warner Brothers called "The Breakdown" that was recorded back in 2012 and features Andy Allo. In my opinion, this track is one of my favorite new tunes from Prince that I have heard in long time.  Take a listen below and let us know what you think.

  • The change has been cashed in, the pennies have been pinched, the lunch money has been saved. Saturday is the day. Record Store Day. Saturday is one year in the making. Special releases, classic reissues, dozens of 45’s, 10”, and LPs, colored vinyl, 180 gram vinyl, its everything that record heads search for throughout the year on one day. No matter if you had your list out for weeks, or if this will be your first Record Store Day, all are welcome. It’s a celebration of the brick and mortar record store. The place where music culture survives. If you want to know where to go in Milwaukee make sure to check out our own Milwaukee Record Store Directory. Happy Hunting.   Public Enemy- It Takes a Nation Of Millions to Hold Us Back Every year Record Store Day has an ‘Ambassador,’ who gets the record heads to look up from vinyl grooves and head to the record store in masses. To honor the ambassador, the vinyl pressers usually go out of their way to make sure that the Ambassador has an album re-pressed, and that it is the album to get on RSD. Last year Jack White was the RSD Ambassador and they re-released The White Stripes Elephant as a double LP, 180 gram tri-color vinyl, full lyrics and credit booklet. So the expectations are high. This year’s Ambassador is Public Enemy’s Chuck D. When Public Enemy formed in the late 80’s, the vinyl record was an instrument itself. Instead of having to buy a drum kit, they had James Brown’s drummer and the breaks that he made for just a couple bucks. For Chuck D and the guys in Public Enemy, they could make an entire album with the releases from this year’s Record Store Day.  This year, the album to get is Public Enemy’s Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back. Buy it because Chuck is the RSD Ambassador. Buy it because it’s being released with a 3D Lenicular cover on 180g vinyl. Buy it to honor the impact that vinyl records have had on hip hop. But more importantly buy it because of the record itself. Chuck D used his role as an MC to create a new social leader. This song, Bring the Noise is a pro-black defense of rap music against a hostile mainstream media. Chuck D continued to fight for the integrity and ingenuity of hip hop in a culture that wanted to brush it aside. This album is one out of a handful that are responsible for hip hop’s survival and success as a genre.        -Justin Barney Ron Jeremy- Understanding and Appreciating Classical Music with Ron Jeremy. Porn Star Ron Jeremy on a 7” talking about classical music. I have no idea what this is, or why they are doing it, but it sounds weird, so I am buying it. LCD Soundsystem- The Long Goodbye A 5 LP, $130 unabridged pressing of LCD Soundystem’s last concert in Madison Square Garden represents everything that is Record Store Day. It is unnecessary. It is overpriced. It’s too much. I don’t need it. Yet, in the frenzy that is Record Store Day, in a manic state of record store day adrenalin I will convince myself to drop $130, on top of the $150 I will already be spending, on an album that I will maybe, maybe, listen to once. This is the epitome of Record Store Day in one album.       -Justin Barney The Side By Sides The Cure / Dinosaur Jr. – Just Like Heaven The Flaming Lips / DEVO- Gates of Steel Pantera / Poison idea- The Badge   Every year there are special releases where two bands cover one song and they put both tracks on different sides of a 7”. It makes a lot of sense as a release. Two versions of one song on the same 7”, but it just doesn’t seem to happen on days that aren’t record store day. So gobble them up while you can.            -Justin Barney Jon Brion- The Paranorman movie soundtrack Jon Brion has always been my absolute favorite producer of all-time. From his work with Fiona Apple & Kanye West  to his film scores with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and I Heart Huckabees, there was always no doubt in my mind that no matter what he produced, it would turn into instant gold. This is no different for Paranorman. For Record Store Day, Mondo Records is putting together a limited edition LP of the soundtrack on a glow in the dark vinyl. Ok, so this vinyl might not be instant gold, but it’ll sure glow. Check out a song off it called “Resolution” below. Be sure to wait until 2:10 where things really start to get good.       -Jake Kestly Story Tags  5 songs 5 songs we can't stop listening to record store day Justin Barney 88Nine Radio Milwaukee Milwaukee best new music discover new music Public Enemy ron jeremy LCD Soundsystem side by side
