My favorite psyche-rock experimental group, American Royalty, is preparing for their massive release of the ‘Prismatic Remixes EP’ out July 9th on Guns In the Sun Records, featuring the likes of Jerome LOL, Kaytranada, Urulu, Steffi Graf, Drop the Lime, & Romaj. The amount of up-and-coming talent associated with this EP is downright ridiculous. Grab your knickers, fill up some chi chi, and get ready for the boogie woogie. First up is the deep funk mix by wonder duo Steffi Graf with just the right amount of vocal interlude right in the middle. Groove with your hips and talk with your hands.
With a big festival week on our hands, we went behind the emerald curtain and into the studio with Hook N Sling to watch him break down his recent remix of The Presets‘ “Fall”. From the synth leads to bassline, from buildup to the drop, watch (above) as the Aussie producer takes the original vocal and sends it straight to the main stage…

The clouds have finally broken as HARD maestro Destructo has finally dropped his much anticipated HIGHER EP today, being released on both OWSLA and Boysnoize Records (and making for one hell of a debut). CO-produced with U-Tern, The EP single features a special extended mix, along with 2 monstrous remixes from Tommy Trash and Brodinski, both flexing their styles respectively onto the already anthemic original. The package also includes the B side “2112″, which highlights Destructo’s obsession with technology and futuristic sounds as the bouncing bass ebbs and flows from beginning to end.
Listen below, and make sure to pick up the EP today on Beatport!
In the next installment of his Hot Sex giveaway series, Valentino Khan shows us an uptempo side of his production – perhaps an influence of his recent tour w/ The Bloody Beetroots? Or just his transformation into new genres? This is definitely a high-energy rollercoaster ride, even villainous in its tone! Listen for yourself and grab it below…
Crookers‘ Ciao Recs revealed its third release yesterday from Italian duo, Dilligas, who have put together a 2-track EP titled Loud in which Crookers collaborates on the title track. ‘Loud’ is an interesting mix of a Big Room anthem with a classic Crookers bounce, and the B-side “Slow Things Down” is literally all over the place with its BPM change-ups and wonky leads. Support already in from Diplo, Rustie, Craze, and of course, Crookers. Preview the EP below and pick it up on Beatport.
One of our favorite Aussies has just written his main stage answer to the summer. The man, the myth Wax Motif has yet again created a monster; this soars into a buildup only to then let you flail across a grinding and winding bassline through the entire track. The cosmic-like breakdown then lets you catch your brain before then pushing you out into a melodic finish. Definitely worth the FREE download below….
Our good buddy Ryan Lofty has taken quite a bit of time off from his busy schedule to encapsulate some of his favorite sounds perfect for the upcoming summer. He doesn’t stop there, almost every track in the mix is a slight edit of his own, putting his own signature touch on big room & prog house classics. This mix is not for the faint hearted nor the casual listen, so get ready to tear the walls down.
Tracklisting After the Jump
Last year’s collab track “Shake & Bake” from Nom De Strip & Bones spread like wildfire after support from the likes of Diplo, Tommy Trash and Chris Lake helped skyrocket its exposure – so far as to catch the attention of Australian diva Kylie Minogue, who loved it so much she insisted on recreating it to be her own sexy original. With the approval of NDS & Bones and the help of Chris Lake, the new version was just released on Nom’s soundcloud yesterday (written by The Dream), with already an incredible response at over 150k plays.
Check it out below, and be on the lookout for its official release!

JFK (of MSTRKRFT) is back on the piano keys to bring you another melodic anthem in “Radar” – but with the help of Autoerotique, it’s become a monster. Expect to hear this one shredding across festival sound systems all summer long.
*Look out for Autoerotique’s new single “Asphyxiation” coming out on May 28th on Dim Mak Records. Watch this teaser (a REAL teaser for sure)…
