SPIKE TV’S SCRIPTED COMEDY SERIES “BLUE MOUNTAIN STATE” RETURNS FOR A SECOND SEASON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20 AT 11:00 PM, ET/PT

Denise Richards Joins Cast As The Contentious Ex-Wife Of “Coach Marty Daniels”

Spike TV’s hit original scripted sports/comedy series “Blue Mountain State” returns to the gridiron for a second season this fall starting Wednesday, October 20 (11:00 – 11:30 PM, ET/PT).  “Blue Mountain State” chronicles the on and off-field antics of the fictional college football powerhouse Blue Mountain State.

Season two of “Blue Mountain State” finds Coach Marty Daniels (Former NFL-er Ed Marinaro) under pressure to deliver a winning season after an embarrassing showing last year that has put his legacy and job security in grave danger.  Adding to the coach’s troubles is the arrival of his contentious and meddling ex-wife Debra (Denise Richards).

The BMS Goats are led on the field by overzealous team captain Thad Castle (Alan Ritchson), who struggles with the decision to go pro after this season or return to BMS, and top recruit Radon Randell (new cast member Page Kennedy) whose talent is matched only by his outrageous behavior and huge ego.  Off the field, the team is once again led by Alex Moran (Darin Brooks), the second string quarterback who is content riding the bench, and his best friend and team mascot Sammy Cacciatore (Romanski).  Sammy’s troubles also multiply this season when his wild, crazy and sexy party-girl sister Mary Jo (new cast member Frankie Shaw) transfers to BMS.

Season two of Spike’s “Blue Mountain State” features numerous guest appearances including Bill Parcells, two-time Super Bowl Champion coach (NY Giants), four-time Pro Bowl QB and 1988 MVP Boomer Esiason (Cincinnati Bengals, NY Jets), four-time Super Bowl Champion Bill Romanowski (Denver Broncos), two-time NCAA All-American Brian Bosworth (Seattle Seahawks), actress Stacy Keibler, UFC® legend Chuck Liddell and renowned sports announcers Dan Patrick and Craig Carton.

Spike.com will also get into all the football action with “Blue Mountain State.”  In addition to featuring weekly preview clips and highlight segments from each episode once the season starts, bms.spike.com currently features new exclusive season two content including behind-the-scenes footage of the cast, celebrity guests and directors, a girls of Blue Mountain State photo gallery and character biographies.  Fans can “Join The Goathouse” to receive weekly emails and exclusive content about “Blue Mountain State” starting now and continuing throughout the season, and can also connect to the series via the official Blue Mountain State Facebook page and follow the all the action on Twitter @BlueMtState.

Additionally, “Blue Mountain State: Season One” will be released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on October 5 from Lionsgate.  In addition to all Season One episodes, the DVD and Blu-ray Disc are loaded with uncut and exclusive extras including “Locker Room Rewind” video commentaries, the featurette “Making the Team: What it Takes to be a BMS Cheerleader,” outtakes and deleted scenes.

“Blue Mountain State” is produced for Spike by Varsity Pictures’ Brian Robbins (“Varsity Blues,” “Smallville,” “One Tree Hill”) and Sharla Sumpter Bridgett and Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF).  Romanski, who also stars as Sammy, and Eric Falconer (“The Sarah Silverman Program,” “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia”) also serve as executive producers and writers.

NYC Bass Explorers Sub Swara Remix Big Boi

 download: Shutterbugg (Sub Swara remix)

Brooklyn-based Sub Swara writes, produces and performs genre-bending bass music that parallels the diversity of their hometown.  Consisting of Dhruva and Dave Sharma, Sub Swara's musical genome brings together a wide assortment of DNA - dub to hip-hop, dancehall to punk rock, and all the global sounds in between.  With sets crafted for both dancefloor intensity and cerebral curiosity, Sub Swara combines electronic production, live instrumentation, and 3000% of recommended energy levels to create an ecstatic, human experience.

Originally started a club night, Sub Swara has always focused on melding bass music of all creeds and cultures.  Over 3 years, the night became one of the most popular and respected club nights in NYC, hosting artists such as Mary Ann Hobbs, The Glitch Mob, Bassnectar, The Bug, and Poirier.  Sub Swara released their 2008 debut album, Coup d'Yah, to  widespread acclaim; critics and tastemakers from Pitchfork, to XLR8R, BBC Radio 1 and the FADER all lauded its seamless melding of varied rhythms, intricate global instrumentation and production both deep and dancefloor-centric. Sub Swara's remix of Balkan Beatbox's "Balkumbia" was featured in the Fader/Nike mixtape series for the 2010 World Cup, Pitch Perfect.

 Sub Swara's second album, Triggers (Low Motion Records), continues the group's exploration of different spaces in bass music, and draws from a completely unique sound pallete that marries both live (much of the percussion is actually played by Sub Swara, in addition to other instruments by guest artists) and electronic elements. It traverses through dubstep, hip hop, and sounds yet to be classified, binding these elements together with strong melodies, intoxicating rhythms, relentless energy and inventive production. Triggers was written as Sub Swara's performances become increasingly live, incorporating live drumming, re-composition and improvised sequences-all while maintaining dancefloor intensity and bass weight.

 With vocalists such as Dead Prez, Lyrics Born, Kendra Foster of Parliament Funkadelic and the up and coming hip hop act, Freddie Mills featured on Triggers, the collaborations are largely hip hop and soul-based, while the vocals in Coup d'Yah were largely dancehall. The instrumental collaborations feature the afrobeat horns of Antibalas, beatboxer Shamik, and a host of master session musicians from around the world.  Sub Swara will be touring extensively in the fall of 2010 to support the new album.

From Justin Kleinfeld:

DJ Mark Farina Returns With Mushroom Jazz 7

North American tour dates throughout 2010 + World Tour beginning January 2011

On November 9, Mark Farina releases Mushroom Jazz 7 – the latest installment in the groundbreaking compilation series.

Mushroom Jazz 7 features Farina's signature hip-hop, jazz-infused, downtempo, dance floor friendly beats. This time around, he deftly mixes and arranges tracks by some of the world's most dynamic artists including Andy Caldwell, Billa Qause, Colossus, Dave Allison, Derek Dunbar, The Hue, Giano & Michael Knight, Jazz Spastiks, Joshua Heath, Lurob, Slakah the Beatchild, Tommy Largo and Uneaq.  The result; a seamless, crisp, hypnotic and sublime journey – true to the easygoing essence that is Mushroom Jazz.

Mark Farina developed his musical tastes in Chicago listening to house music on the radio while living in one of the country's most primordial breeding grounds for the genre.  Farina first started wandering from his passion for the purist forms of House, which grew into his trademark down tempo style - Mushroom Jazz, when he was DJing in both the main and the side rooms at Chicago nightclubs in the same night.  Mark experimented with a slower style, dropping De La Soul, Herbie Hancock, funk classics and other stuff that wasn't being played in the main room.  This resulted in a small run of mix tapes entitled "Mushroom Jazz" which Mark released featuring his jazzy down tempo style.   The Mushroom Jazz tapes grew from the first run of 50 copies to the next run at 500 copies.  Today, these early releases are highly sought after items around the globe.

In 1992, Mark Farina, along with Patty Ryan, created the legendary weekly Jazid Up club night in San Francisco.  There, Mark honed his signature style and established a fanatical, cult-like following for himself and the “Mushroom Jazz” sound.  Finally, after five years, the club closed its doors and Mark and Patty teamed up with Om Records to release the Mushroom Jazz CD series...And the rest is history. Now, after six volumes and extensive worldwide tours, Mark Farina brings you MJ7 - Farina's most ambitious release to date, showcasing the evolution of decades of mastery in defining the genre he's credited with creating.  Make sure you check out Mark Farina on the road this fall when the Mushroom Jazz World Tour hits a city near you.

(Mushroom Jazz 7 is available through a special pre-order in several different formats: Collector’s Edition, CD + Digital Download Package and CD Package only.  Free music is delivered immediately upon Pre-Order.  Those interested in purchasing the Limited Edition Collector’s Edition from djmarkfarina.net will receive: Autographed six panel digipak CD of Mushroom Jazz 7, Mark Farina iPhone App (powered by Mix.dj), Digital download of Mushroom Jazz 7, CD Digital download of all (19) Mushroom Jazz 7 tracks (full length), Digital download of “Mushroom” acapellas & samples (DJ Tool), Digital download of track “Something Cool” by Mark Farina, Digital download of Five (5) unreleased “Mushroom Jazz” mixes by DJ Mark Farina, Digital download of track “Get Me There” by Combined (Bonus Track), Digital download of “Stressin’” (Music Video) and  Digital download of Key Art, Electronic PDF and Youtube & Twitter Background artwork. )
