Let the summer vibes rain down on your case of the Mondays… UK radio wizards Tough Love have given us the exclusive premiere of their newest release on their imprint Get Twisted – and a debut at that! Please welcome the hugely popular & immensely talented Purple Disco Machine. Having dominated Beatport Charts over the last year with a plethora of releases on every noteworthy underground label we are proud to have him join the family. ’Soul So Sweet’ is a summer anthem that is sure to stand the test of time form many years to come. Classic, uplifting, feel good are all words that could be used to describe the record, but we’ll let you listen close your eyes and imagine being on a sun lounger by the pool in ibiza & tell us if you’ve ever felt better!

Are fam at Main Course just cannot turn down the heat. Their co-captain BOT brings you ‘PLATES’ (out August 14), an 8-track house compilation from the some of the most underrated producers doing it today and the package is straight fire from top to bottom. We’re lucky enough to premiere the collab from Smalltown DJs (Fools Gold, Main Course), Christian Martin (Dirtybird) & Sabo (Sol Selectas) called ‘Sandia’. The result is a jackin ghetto tech monster – riding a rolling bassline with bells and whistles dancing all the way through. Here’s what the boys had to say about it:

“This collaboration was written in a Ford F150 on the Mountain Magic Tour as we drove through the hills & forests of interior BC. A “Car-llabo”. Mountain Magic is a snowboard & dj tour we do every winter in Western Canada. We were testing the tunes at each show & tweaking the sessions as we drove from town to town, so we really feel like they are an awesome representation of the times we had on MM 2015.”

To get us hyped for their big show this Saturday night @ Exchange LA, I caught up with house music lords Chris Lake and Amtrac for another cheeky edition of our Quick-hitter interview series. The two have never met, but we found plenty to be sized up in their comparisons of Los Angeles and preparation for the gig. Let’s get to it!

AMTRAC….

1.) Whats your favorite track (original or remix) by Chris Lake?
Chris Lake – Chest (Original Mix)
Deadmau5 – Faxing Berlin (Chris Lake Edit)

2.) First memory of coming to LA?
I remember leaving my phone in a car when I went to a show in Hollywood. I ended up having to find my way to some party on Mulholland to retrieve it. Mulholland Drive is such a tight movie, so I didn’t mind the journey so much.

3.) You’re driving a convertible around LA, what song is playing?
CAN – Vitamin C

4.) Go-to spot to eat in LA?
The King of Grill in Hollywood / the fire walk up tacos

5.) What non-music celebrity would you go b2b with and why?
Shia LaBeouf, because I’m sure his tracks would “Do It”

6.) 1 thing you want Chris Lake to know before the show July 11 @ Exchange?
I probably won’t play any AC/DC

CHRIS LAKE….

1.) If you weren’t making music / DJing what would your job be?
I’d probably be designing tall buildings like skyscrapers and bridges, things like that. It always fascinated me as a kid.

2.) First memory of coming to LA?
I played Monday Night Social 8 years ago so that would have been my first trip here. There was a heat wave and I thought I was going to die in that temperature. It did take me a few trips to get used to it here though, but now I love it and I’ve been living here for nearly 4 years.

3.) You’re driving a convertible around LA, what song is playing?
Anything by the beach boys

4.) Go-to spot to eat in LA
M cafe on Melrose

5.) What non-music celebrity would you go b2b with and why?
Idris Elba coaches a bad ass and he can also DJ (I know I kinda cheated)

6.) First thing that comes to mind when you think of the word ‘AMTRAC’?
Journeys with a view to San Diego (on a train, obviously)

It seems that Chris Lake just can’t be stopped this year, whether cooking up huge originals or churning out remixes like it’s his…. oh wait, it IS his job! He’s recently championed remixes for Jess Glynne, Fono, and a chart topping anthem to ‘California’ by SNBRN. The streak hasn’t settled yet, as his next target is a massive house overhaul to the radio hit ‘Get Stupid’ by Aston Merrygold. Chris Lake had a vision far apart from the original, and he successfully delivered another beast entirely. The beckoning ‘Get Stupid’ vocal goes on a wild ride through thick basslines, howling synth whips, and a roller coaster of percussion – making this one another anthem set for every club floor to the festival circuit.

Early support is already across the board, with plays from the likes of DJ Snake, Chocolate Puma, Mercer, Pete Tong, Danny Howard, Fedde Le Grand, Yolanda Be Cool, Moguai, Roska, Go Freek, Example, and more. Listen to the full track below and look out for its release on July 24!

Life’s a bitch and then you die. The haunting lyrics of Nas on his recent single have been echoed through the years of hip-hop. Dallas newcomer Zander has given us the reason to live up the motto in his low-end driven house flip, with a deep wobble, stabbing bassline and a hint of breaks for good measure. Fans of Jack Beats, Amine Edge & Dance and Tchami will be all over this one. Grab it below for FREE DOWNLOAD!

Markus “Notch” Persson is not only known for creating one of the most popular games in electronic history, but has quickly made a presence for himself in the dance music world by hosting parties around the world with the biggest names in the scene. Amidst last week’s E3 conference in downtown Los Angeles, Notch decided to blow the roof off the gamer gathering and team up with Production Club (masters behind the visual experience of Skrillex, Zedd, Martin Garrix and more) to throw a huge party under a massive dome in the middle of the Los Angeles Coliseum.

The party featured the world’s largest inflatable dome in the world (not kidding – had to be shipped over from India just for one night) and a plethora of projectors to dance visuals across the concave canvas. The visual experience was other worldly, making you feel transported to another dimension.

From the radio waves to the festival stages, Fono‘s house anthem “Real Joy” has been rinsed far and wide this year. The single finally got it’s highly anticipated remix package, flexing a club edit from Duke Dumont, a junglist loving take from TC, and our favorite – a chunky jackin flip from house mogul Chris Lake and mysterious collaborator Rrotik. Lake & Rrotik take the cake on this one, giving the original a fat low end and dicing the vocal into its own instrument. Early support for their remix already comes from Gorgon City, Treasure Fingers, Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Moguai, Danny Howard, EDX, Max Vangeli, Paul Oakenfold, and Fono himself. Listen to the full stream below and download exclusively on iTunes!

We are all just strangers in the night.

The words given from the out-of-nowhere producer known as Stranger, who within a month has unloaded 4 original tracks along with remixes for Jack Ü and Must Die! for the OWSLA imprint. The sound of Stranger is low end driven house, with influences of breaks, garage, and bassline that go from zero to party real quick. On top of that, his new collaboration w/ Jamie Prado landed a world premiere on Tiesto’s club life podcast, taking things into deeper territory. Be on the lookout for Stranger, as I see massive moves to be made later this year…. grab his 4-track EP below for FREE download.
