is an electro-house-dub-party-sex trio born from the windy streets of
Chicago. And before PETA has a freak out, they don't kill puppies, but
damn can they murder some beats.
Comprised of singer-songwriting sisters
Yasmine and Jahan Yousaf, backed by boss-level producer Rain Man (known
to his moms as Kris Trindi), this threesome made a name for themselves
as raucous party ambassadors from the planet bass. But their real-life
dynamic and genre palette is a lot deeper and more complex than fans
In a recent interview with New Times, Yasmine
Yosaf said on the subject of genres: "They're such bullshit. They're
boundaries, they're barriers. I think that a lot of people can
appreciate the fact that we just make music that we like. We got
pigeonholed as a dubstep group for a really long time, but to be honest,
I haven't heard us being called a dubstep trio in a few months." That's
because their Play Hard EP, released last summer, had them "Killin It"
all over the country and 2012 charts. Her advice to other DJs? "Do what
feels good and feels right when making music, and you're going to get an

Aging in the
public eye sucks. You get wrinkly where you were once taut, you have
backing jazz bands where long-haired rock gods once stood. But it's also
a real pain in the ass when you're a young kid, idolized for your
youth, talent, and attractiveness, and you've got to grow up while all
eyes are on you.
We're certain no one's really spending their days
pitying Justin Bieber, but it's not like the guy deserves none. Sure his
star power has attracted collaborations with some of hip-hop's biggest
producers and musicians, and yeah, he's the most famous 18-year old
ever. But in the recent Rolling Stone cover story on the Biebs, it's
clear he has no privacy: "Up on a hill, on the other side of a fence,
two paparazzi are snapping pictures with telephoto lenses. Someone at
the course must have tipped them off. Instantly, Bieber's mood darkens."
And even worse, the guy takes a toke and little girls start cutting
themselves in protest. OK, so that was a hoax, but it could have been
real! Well, maybe not. Either way, it can't be easy being anyone's
"Boyfriend" or getting lame tattoos when the whole world's commenting.
But for big boy Biebs, the show must go on. Miami's preparing to get
steamy with Bieber fever this week. Moms, gay cousins, and tweens will
likely all take their tops off for the singer at his upcoming American
Airlines Arena show. If you attend, beware of training bra and D&G
7 p.m., at Propaganda, 6 South J Street, Lake Worth. Tickets cost $5 in advance and $10 at the door. Visit Facebook invite.
were psyched to see WPB rapper Will Brennan had signed to Steve Aoki's
Dim Mak records. Sure we named him number one on our list of best Palm
Beach County rappers, but to see him hit it real big fills our sweaty
SoFla hearts with pride.
