PREVIEW: Download 20 Watts’ LONG ISLAND SCENE MIX on Mediafire

From the year 2000 to about 2005, Long Island possessed one of the most vibrant music scenes in the U.S. At the forefront of recent hardcore and early emo trends, bands from L.I. were known for layered vocal attacks, a chip on their shoulder and a rotation of the same cast of characters. As the music got more popular, bands either broke up or changed their sound, as the scene plummeted to its current, almost non-existent depths. This is an exploration as to what happened before that.

So what’s the very best of the Long Island scene? 20 Watts’ JOHN CASSILLO has the answer in our sixth 20 installment. Watch for new 20s each Thursday, only on 20 Watts, and check out our previous 20s below!
