Curt Reynolds was raised on the sun-drenched beaches of San Diego and has been making an impact on the busy electronic music scene over the last year. With recent performances at Lollapalooza, Splash House, ME Cabo, Sound Nightclub and more, Curt Reynolds aka Ben Curtis, has had a sudden rise to recognition with a very promising future ahead. Now residing in LA, he brings funky, deep, and disco vibes that reflect his coastal upbringing and beach party mentality.

We’ve been following Solé Bicycle‘s Fixtape series since the beginning, and they’ve been successful in maintaining a steady flow of tasteful mixes from some of dance music’s finest. Their most recent offering is no exception, as they’ve brought on the Crew Love bosses, Soul Clap, for an exclusive, live edition of the fixtape series. Taken from the Crew Love WMC 2016 party at the famed Electric Pickle, the mix will navigate you through some deep cuts of house, nu-disco, funk, hip-hop, and more to ensure you receive a healthy dose of eclectic vibes that the Bostonian duo is respected for. Listen above and download the mix for safe keeping, Soul Clap played Yuma at Coachella this year for good reason.
Coming off of a heavy Miami Music Week, including many stand out sets and the 2016 edition of his No Xcuses Miami party with The Magician, Bakermat, and more, EDX steps up with the 264th episode of his weekly No Xcuses podcast and radio show that’s broadcasted worldwide. As a brand, No Xcuses grows stronger with each episode and party put together by EDX, and he continues to rise up the ranks, in parallel. Last year, he was the #1 charting artist on Beatport, and we wouldn’t be surprised if he achieved the same success this year with tracks like “Missing” that was released back in February.
For this episode, EDX has included a diverse array of groovy house selections that he’s come to be known for – from feel-good jams to more driving, clubby tracks. Listen above to hear new music from the likes of Nora En Pure, My Digital Enemy, Oliver Heldens, and more. Download the podcast here.
Parker + Barrow dig deep below the surface & well beyond the House music realm on the latest Deep House Amsterdam mix, DHA Mixtape #190.

With style & mood shifts throughout, it not only guides your body but your mind & spirit, too. It’s easy to notice that this fast rising production/live performance duo takes pride in crafting their mixes. If this mixtape is any indicator for what Parker + Barrow have to offer for the remainder of 2016, well…we can’t wait to see what’s in store.
Just before boarding Holy Ship! yesterday, Justin Jay dropped his addictive Fantastic Voyage House Party Mix, in celebration of his upcoming tour. With his tour announcement earlier this month, he unveiled his Fantastic Voyage brand/party concept, and filled us in on what we can expect – house party vibes, and a mix of forward-thinking music with songs too weird/quirky for festivals, and other tunes too cheesy for underground warehouses. Additionally, his “Friends,” vocalist Josh Taylor and guitarist Benny Bridges, will officially be joining him on select dates for live experimentation that you may have already gotten a taste of at Coachella, CRSSD, and more. We can’t wait for his LA date at The Roxy on Saturday, February 27th, especially after listening to this new mix. Listen above and head to his website for the full list of dates and tickets.

For the latest episode of their Fixtape series, our friends at Solé Bicycles have recruited Chicago’s Autograf, in anticipation of SnowGlobe Music Festival taking place later this month over NYE. Both Solé and the Autograf boys have been on a tear this year, so it makes sense for them to join forces as the year comes to a close. With tracks from SNBRN, Moon Boots, Zimmer, Gryffin and more, Autograf’s 50-minute mix provides a great warm-up for what you can expect from the trio during their anticipated SnowGlobe performance.

“The beauty of traveling the world is experiencing contrast. One moment you’re on a beach in Malaysia, the next you’re on a snowcapped mountain on Lake Tahoe. After spending the last couple weeks in the sweltering heat of places like Thailand, India, and Singapore, it’ll be a baptism of sorts to finally experience a proper winter at Snowglobe Festival. We made this mix with the idea of contrast in mind because without darkness there is no light and without silence, there is no music. So what a beautiful world it is to have contrast.” – Autograf
