Production trio Autograf continue to keep releasing bombs. After an immense tour of playing both live and DJ sets, it would seem that its back to the lab. Their latest work is a remix for Alesso and Roy English and their track “Cool.” The track is and easy-listening house piece. Tropical-esque notes work well with the vox sampling, and everything is very cohesive with the melody. Follow along with Autograf as they keep crushing track after track.
Aaron Jackson and Nite Records have teamed up to drop a hell of a 3-track EP. ”Be A Better You” features a handfull of tunes from the Oregon-based producer, each just as heavy as the next. Quick jackin’ style characterizes each of these tracks, but each has its own quirky bass arrangement. The vox samples are short and sweet, just enough to keep your head in the game until the fluttering synths in “I Don’t Need You” take you to another place. Look out for Aaron Jackson, as these tracks are coming to burn uo a dancefloor near you.
MSCLS out of Austin, Texas is one of my new favorite producers. A nice balance between classic house music and g-house describes his vibe perfectly, and he just keeps getting better. His latest is an official remix for Acaddamy, an Australian act on the Etc Etc label. Let this rolling bass line get you hopping around the office, and stay tuned for more MSCLS.
Sydney based Acaddamy has picked up huge momentum on the airwaves thanks to his single “I’ve Been Waiting” on EtcEtc Music, but now gets a huge overhaul in the remix department by Portland based Jason Burns. Taking the haunting vocals of the original, Jason Burns dives into darker territory as he’s known for – giving it a taste of garage and a deeper bassline. Aside versions from MSCLS and Lyndon Kidd, the Jason Burns cut is our clear front runner on the package.
And we’re not the only ones hyped on it – the remix already has early support from AC Slater, Kokiri, Yuri / Database (Kitsune), Vaden (Rinse FM), Ookay, LCAW, Ben Drumsound (Drumsound & Bassline Smith), Chuckie, Icarus.

This year, our hometown hero and dirtybird protegé, Justin Jay, has been making strides in his burgeoning career with successful releases, like his Momentum EP on Pets Recordings, and his Coachella debut in The Do LaB over the weekend. After sitting on this sophomore dorm room-produced secret weapon, “Mind Games,” since the WMC Dirtybird BBQ party a couple of years ago, he’s finally releasing it via Annie Mac’s Free Music Monday. On the track, Justin Jay merges funk-infused elements with a punchy, evolving bassline, and shuffling percussion for a groove that oozes with feel-good vibes. With this release, his imminent USC graduation, and plans for touring in the UK and Europe in the coming months, Justin Jay is about to have an excellent summer.
Here are a few words about the song from Justin Jay himself, “I made Mind Games 2 years ago, during the spring of my Sophomore year in college. I wanted to make something that could bring funky, feel-good vibes to the Dirtybird BBQ party during WMC that year. This track ended up becoming a staple in my sets for the whole summer and it’s still a favorite among my homies at school. With college coming to an end and Annie Mac on board, it feels like perfect timing to give you guys this tried and tested secret weapon.”
