Sammy Adams “All Night Longer”

[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8b_q5V-wXgg]

Check out prep school grad, Sammy Adams’ new single “All Night Longer.” It’s a pretty sweet upbeat track good for a night out. Play this at a Sweet 16 or House Party, and things will get going.

Seeing as Sammy Adams went to prep school, and makes sick music, we’re currently trying to set up a Sammy Adams concert in conjunction with Twines & Vines for MA prep schoolers in the near future.

God Forgives I Don’t

20120726-194701.jpg

Rick Ross’ God Forgives I Don’t is set to drop in a couple of days, but here at Twines & Vines we’re already bumping Teflon Don’s fifth studio album. (Thanks to our Palm Beach & Miami hookup.) Highlights include Pirates, 3 Kings and Diced Pineapples. Features include MMG’s own Meek Mill, Wale and Stalley, Andre 3000, Hov, Dre, John Legend, Drake amongst others. I must admit, GFID strays from Ross’ traditional bangers in favor of some jazz infused smoother tracks including production by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League. This isn’t to say there aren’t bangers, but be warned you are in for a surprise. All in all this will be the soundtrack of August. Since the album has not been officially released, I cannot link to the songs, but I recommend downloading when it’s released on July 31st.

Local Jamz

I’ve been away from the T&V team for a bit but during this time I discovered an absolute GEM! Aer is a local band (close to my prep school at least) from Wayland, Mass. They’ve got some stuff on itunes and a free album floating around out there (The Reach), but my favorite song is by far Feel I Bring.  Enjoy this one on your yacht!

Kimball Union grad is a lax cage monster by day & mix-master by night

 

From the Tufts Daily newspaper, April 24, 2012

On the night of Tuesday, April 10, the lights shone bright upon Bello Field. As the stars came out and the final seconds ticked off the clock in Tufts’ 11−5 defeat of Endicott, the Jumbos rushed the field and collapsed into a dog pile in front of the cage. In the middle of the scrum was backup goalie Mike “Cheese” Maggiore, a sophomore who had just seen his first minutes of collegiate play.

But that wasn’t the top moment of the night for Maggiore. As the Jumbos lined up to shake hands with the Gulls and fans assembled along the fence, a familiar song came blasting through the loudspeakers. It was Maggiore’s own voice, and all of a sudden even the goal he’d let in that night couldn’t wipe the toothy grin from his face. The song, ironically, was called “Smile,” a track on the rapper’s second studio album, “The SKLife, Volume Two,” which he released this month.

Dubbed “Cheese” in middle school by his brother Matt because of a scene in the film “Old School” (2003), Maggiore prefers these days to go by his artist name, “CheddaSK.” And while his imprint on the stat sheet may be small, he has his eyes on something bigger: giving a voice to Tufts by representing himself and his team through music.

Last spring, Maggiore debuted his musical talent with his first mixtape, “The SKLife, Vol. 1,” and in April, his sophomore album, a 10−track collection of studio quality recordings produced by local talent Mike Irish, hit the Web.

Pretty cool story, but if you know anything about prep schools, you can’t swing a d-pole without hitting a few aspiring rappers or DJ’s. Our school has a few who have been featured here on Twines & Vines, not to mention preps like Sam Adams and Jazz Cartier. 

Who would nickname their little brother “Cheese” from “Old School?” That was the dean’s nickname, and everyone hated him and locked him in a dumpster. I would have went with “Blue” if my little brother was a boss. Well, actually, my little bro is kind of a boss, but he’s already got a nickname.  

On another note, J.J. Threads has been outfitting Pro laxers to Djs with sick shirts–Why not hookup a combo of both?
