The first time the English singer Jay Sean released “Ride It,” a feathery single about seduction on the dancefloor, the track became a hit pretty much everywhere. “That was huge for me,” Sean recalls. “I had a global fanbase already on top of the songs I did with Virgin Records. ‘Ride It’ got played around the world [in 2008].” But one country remained unmoved. “The only place it didn’t take off was America, because nobody really knew me there at all,” the singer says. Now “Ride It” is getting a second chance Stateside: A house remix by Regard — tempo pushed higher, vocals pitched lower, but otherwise faithful to the original — topped the Spotify viral chart in the U.S. last week. “When a hit’s a hit, you can’t hold it down,” Sean says happily. “It wanted to be a hit in the first place.” The second life of “Ride It” is due in part to its popularity … [Read more...] about Jay Sean’s ‘Ride It’ Is a Hit Again, 12 Years Later

But I reckon I got to light out for the Territory ahead of the rest, because Aunt Sally she’s going to adopt me and sivilise me and I can’t stand it. I been there before. – Mark Twain, Huckleberry Finn The Dead didn’t get it going Wednesday night at Winterland, and that was too bad. The gig was a bail fund benefit for the People’s Park in Berkeley, and the giant ice-skating cavern was packed with heads. The whole park hassle – the benefit was for the 450 busted a few days before – had been a Berkeley political trip all the way down, but the issue was a good-timey park, so the crowd, though older and more radical than most San Francisco rock crowds, was a fine one in a good dancing mood, watery mouths waiting for the groove to come.

Perhaps not as well known as some of the superheroes that make up Marvel's Avengers, Doctor Strange lives in his own little section of the cosmic universe surrounded by plenty of colorful characters. And it sounds like Marvel will be dipping deep into his bag of tricks for this particular Phase 3 adventure. It's not going to be a conventional Marvel movie, that's for sure. But as Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirmed earlier this year, it will still be an origin story. Now, Latino Review has new insight into how this original will play out on screen, revealing that it will center around a villain we weren't expecting. At all. Though Disney and Marvel have yet to officially confirm it, Doctor Strange began shooting this past week. And with that, we've seen a ton of set photos and video that show a haggard Benedict Cumberbatch before he becomes the Scorcerer supreme.
