Our friends over at Main Course sure know how to pick ‘em. Fresco Crumbs is one of the newer up-and-coming acts in their camp, and has decided to kick off 2015 with a bang. His “Three Kings Mix” is an hour packed to the brim with a huge tracklist of Main Course sound. There is some exclusive unreleased material in this one, so be on the lookout for some gems. Look out for more Fresco Crumbs in the near future, but for now let the musical stylings of Astronomar, Skitzofrenix and more keep you bouncing for the next hour.
Coming off of an insanely successful tag team remix of Mary J. Blige with Glenn Michaels, our friend Christofi is back with a new jam. The latest, a remix of Mariah Carey’s “Emotions” carries an electric future vibe that is felt throughout the whole tune. The vocals are sampled nicely, and I’m particularly fond of the melody Christofi has created to compliment this classic track. This guy keeps getting better and better, so keep your eyes peeled for more from his camp in 2015.
2014 was a pretty mental year for dance music, and it warms our hearts to see the sudden explosion of house music catching on here in America. With acts like Disclosure, Duke Dumont, and Clean Bandit getting Grammy nominations, it’s safe to say we’re in for a wild ride in 2015.
Here’s my 60 minute take on the last 12 months that features music from Oliver Heldens, Gorgon City, Maceo Plex and much more.
Best wishes in the new year!

Up-and-comer Loosid has been peaking a fair amount of the interest with only a handful of releases over 10 days. Another anonymous figure, I’m beginning to see a theme here. Regardless of the mysterious details surrounding the producer, the project is impressive, crossing over genres effortlessly and skillfully. The previous releases include trap, house, and future house, stepping into a new arena today with this John Mayer remix. Without further ado, enjoy this glitchy-yet-melodic take on the classic jam.
We’ve seen many remixes of Flight Facilities thrown around in the past weeks. Guys like Lido and HNNY have both put their stamp on “Two Bodies” to the delight of listeners everywhere. Today, we’re stoked to bring you the missing link in the remix spectrum. Our good buddy and Los Angeles native Modus has graced us with an exclusive download of his take on the aforementioned “Two Bodies.” He repurposes the simple, yet beautiful melody into a churning tech-house piece, incorporating the ethereal vocals in the ladder half to tie everything together.
This one truly is made for the club, so expect to be hearing it at one near you. Speaking of which, you can catch Modus at one of his upcoming Los Angeles shows:
- (1/2/15) Frenzy Afterhours at Avalon
- (1/21/15) Clinic at Couture with Anthony Attalla
Anonymity has slowly but surely become a more popular route by producers aiming to gather a bit of buzz. In the case of Geist, it’s working. Since the release of “I Need Ya,” a techno-rooted, big room underground style collaboration with Schumi, curious ears have been awaiting their return. With “Hey Hey,” the duo kicks of the first of five releases making up the #EXPECTCOLOR EP. The achieved sound is a bit more lighthearted and dancey than their first release, offering a larger sound spectrum to their mysterious project. Grab the free download and stay tuned for the rest of their debut EP.

Lokal Legend, the label that debuted Kiesza’s “Hideaway” is back with another artist poised to take over the indie dance world: Listenbee – “Save Me”. Rami Afuni, Lokal Legend founder and producer of Kiesza’s Hideaway and debut album “Sound of a Woman” shares his vision for the project:
“From the moment I heard ‘Save Me’, I knew that the Listenbee project was the perfect follow up to the Kiesza release. Listenbee breaks down barriers in the Electronic world, while maintaining a strong sense of artistry, musical integrity and songwriting acumen. Listenbee’s aesthetic simply aligned perfectly with my vision for the Lokal Legend brand.”
