adamgdd

This Saturday, Techno giant Adam Beyer returns to Los Angeles. Somewhat of a regular now at Exchange, the Swedish producer always brings the best of the best from his label, DRUMCODE, thumping into the early hours of the morning along with his special guest this weekend, Paul Ritch.

Pre-sale tickets available HERE

And to get ready for Saturday, have a listen to Adam’s remix for Ida Engberg on Crosstown Rebels plus the most recent DRUMCODE Radio mix below!

porter worlds RAC Remix

Porter Robinson nearly broke the internet earlier this month with the release of “Sea of Voices,” which comes as the first single from his much-discussed, DJ-defying album, Worlds, seeing release this spring on Astralwerks. It’s no secret, Porter’s creative process has changed with the production of the new record; producing and composing music that accurately illuminates his personal musicianship and taste rather than fitting the mold, so to speak, and making a record for the big room.

Remixes of the album, however, will surely tell a different story, and today, we’ve been given a listen to the maiden remix from Worlds from buzzing Interscope artist, RAC. Lending his signature Pop-infused sound, RAC uses light, bubbly synths and inviting guitar strums to carry “Sea Of Voices,” removing the M83-esque anticipatory build from Porter’s original while maintaining the integrity of the airy vocal. Listen to the beautiful remix below and pick it up on iTunes today.

cajual records

Curtis Jones aka Green Velvet aka Cajmere released the 36-track Cajual vs. Relief Compilation today, boasting dozens of remixes, originals, and collaborations including this one from our pal Doorly who teamed up with the 2x label boss for a House heater titled “Money.” With vocals from Green Velvet, the 7-minute tune is a low-slung, late night groover, reminiscent of dark warehouses and bad decisions. Have a listen to “Money” below and check the entire compilation on Beatport. √+

crookers heavy

Crookers‘ “Heavy” has been on serious rotation since Phra unleashed it last month. Aptly named, the single due out March 23rd hits some lower than low spots, with an undeniable, eclectic Crookers bounce and NSFW second build. Prior to the release, Crookers has called upon Parisian producer, Donovans, for a remix of the bass-heavy tune, and he’s stuck with the #HEAVY vibe while adding some new flavor in as well. This isn’t the first time Crookers and Donovans have linked up either, as you might remember Donovans reworked Crookers’ “Hummus” back in 2011 for the Mad Decent release. Have a listen to the new one below. √+

03_08_Umek_600x800

BIG 1 this Saturday as Shadow Child makes his debut Los Angeles performance along with UMEK and Groovebox at Exchange in DTLA and our very own BONES opening up the room. The night should be filled with all the House, Techno, and Bassline you can handle, and we’re happy to announce that we will be giving away an UMEK package including tickets, CD, merch, and a meet&greet with the stalwart producer.

kidnap kid

After giving us the stream a few weeks back to his title track for the Stronger EP released last week on Black Butter Records, Kidnap Kid has posted up the B-side titled “Like You Used To” to the A+ release. Vocal-laden and emotional, “Like You Used To” is a beautiful production from the UK producer, leaving the dance floor behind and including all of the qualities of a top notch headphone song. Check out “Stronger” here and stream this easy listening jam below. √+

wukileaks3

Here we are in the 3rd week of WUKILEAKS — the 9 part bootleg download series brought to you by the talented and oh-so creative, Wuki. After setting his sights on Mystikal and Telefon Tel Aviv the past 2 weeks, the Colorado-based producer has now drifted into the Pop realm for his third giveaway, adding a booty-shaking, breaks vibe to Mariah Carey’s 2005 jam with Jermaine Dupri, “Shake It Off.” To be honest, I hadn’t heard the original from Mariah in years and this revamp from Wuki is currently bringing back some sweet, sweet high school memories for me.
