By golly, Los Angeles’s latest wonder children are at it again, and ‘Ride’ is quite the boogie machine from the age of funk. Fresh off the release of their EP ‘ Love Like This ‘ and their Hype Machine top 3 edit of Michael Jackson’s PYT; LA’s Bixel Boys are unveiling Ride, for free download. The song appropriates the sultry vocals of Ciara; and takes the hot and heavy R&B track and transforms it into a bouncy, bass fueled, house banger. The LA duo has plenty more in store and will be dropping new songs, limited edits and mixtapes through out the summer so be on the look out.

Solé Bicycle Co. is pleased to present this month’s Fixtape, from LA’s own,Oliver, the electro-funk super group of Oliver Goldstein & Vaughn Oliver.
