Remixed S3E1: Wait, what year is this?

We’re back with a brand new season of Remixed! On this episode, we talk about some recent dub step goodness, disappointment in Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift, as well as the return of Black Eyed Peas and Enrique Iglesias. 

The surprises and shoe-ins of the 2018 Grammy nominees

All things considered, the pool of nominations for this year’s awards are the best they’ve been in a long time. Even though the Grammys are trying really hard to make Record of the Year their top prize, most people still have their eyes on Album of the Year, and this year’s choices for the gold are stacked.

Taylor Swift’s ‘Reputation’ is an entertaining mess, but it’s still a mess

‘Reputation’ was supposed to be a total reinvention for Taylor Swift, but all of the least endearing aspects of her old music are still here in droves. “Don’t Blame Me” is fun to sing along to and “Getaway Car” might actually be the best pop song of the year, but the rest of the album does not live up to the standards of a few isolated tracks. Sure, it has a lot of catchy tunes, but it’s much more memorable for its bitter attitude and its laughable implementation of hip-hop and trap influences.
