Oakland Scene – We Are With You

image courtesy EastBayTimes For those who may not be aware, there was a horrible fire at an event in on the second floor of a building (being reported as a warehouse in the media) in Oakland last night, with artist Golden Donna. The UNNET family sends its love and support to those affected and we hope for the speedy recovery of those affected.  To those who have lost, words cannot express our condolences for your loss. While the exact details and casualties are not clear, this really struck home for me.  I used to party in Oakland and The Bay, in locations just like this.  We broke into warehouses, while we paid to legally occupy others.  Many had shifty safety and […]

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!!!

That’s right, we’re finally legal: UNNET IS 18!!! We can vote. We’re no longer dirty-old-man bait. We’re finally older than our ADIDAS shell toe sneakers It was 18 years ago that UNNET sprang up to become a juggernaut messageboard and was the source for everything rave.  We’re a little older, a little wiser and we have a broader musical palette now, but we’re still underground as f**k and aren’t done yet. We’ve expanded our event portal and ticketing platform (launching soon!) and will continue to bring you the freshest music and hypest news.  Tell your friends.

Skrillex & Rick Ross Back For More

by: Brandon Plank As originally reported on edmsauce.com, Skrillex and Rick Ross are back at it. Their highly energetic and vigorous collaboration on “Purple Lamborghini” exceeded expectations and now the two want to join forces once again. Rick Ross told Billboard “Shout to my big homie Skrillex. I just spoke to him maybe a week or two ago, and we talking about our next collaboration for my project.” On working with Skrillex, Rick Ross said “I love how he took my heavy beat, heavy grimy sound, and he added that electricity in that chorus.” Now, I’m no fan of Skrillex, but I love me some Rick Ross and found their last collab to be fairly palatable.  I’m definitely looking forward […]
