option4 really is a man of the people. In the past 2 months, the Denver-based DJ/producer has churned out top remixes for Sammy Bananas on Fools Gold and Indian Summer on Sweat It Out – not to mention throwing his own festival Cloak & Dagger that erupted the ever-growing dance music scene in the mile high city. His next play? Give back to the fans by releasing a FREE original on local label Night Supply. “You’re ILL” samples everyones favorite verse from Lil B of the Pack, and keeps things ghetto tech rollin with jackin house appeal. Fans of HNNY, Sacha Robotti, or any of the Dirtybird camp will be all over this one… grab it below!
As the OWSLA takeover of Boomrat continues, as do the dope playlists. Today’s selection is “Best of Nest” compilation, bringing together a handful of the best releases on Skrillex’s free imprint, Nest HQ. Not only do they procure releases from the best electronic acts around the world, they release it all for free. Without further ado, let the sounds of CRNKN, Worthy, Anna Lunoe, AC Slater and many more get you going.
The sounds of Le Youth continue to resonate throughout the blogosphere & the internet with his new track “R E A L”. Not many artists tow the line between Disco & House as well as Le Youth does, which is a big part of why his sound resonates with so many. On “R E A L”, Le Youth adds some gloss to the Brandy song “I Wanna Be Down” & conjures up an outstanding, chopped up rework of the 1994 classic. The combination here of Disco & House is already a winning formula. But when you add in a healthy dose of R&B to the mix…well that’s almost unfair to make a track this enjoyable.
Valentino Khan, trap lord and former owner the most famous fu manchu in music, is the first out of the gates in OWSLA’s takeover of Boomrat. Huge remixes for Skrillex and Dillon Francis, a collaboration with Diplo, and a wildly successful “In Khan We Trust” EP have skyrocketed his career over the past year, and he’s far from finished. He’s graciously offered up the personalized playlist below, featuring some of his most essential jams. Enjoy, and get ready for a booming week from OWSLA and Boomrat.

Let me preface this by saying I fucking love Doc Daneeka. There is not a track he’s made I don’t like. As for Seven Davis Jr, “One” is an absolute GEM and I mean first “related track” that comes up on YouTube is “Deep Burnt” so you know dude is special.
The two have come together for the new single “What’s It Gonna Be?” from Daneeka’s new EP From Mine To Mistress . The single is precisely what makes the two of them so special, it’s a truly amazing collaborative effort. Doc Daneeka’s banging drums and combination of dark and light in chord progression along with SDJr’s soulful softness leave you all sorts of tingly in all the right ways. The video is just as good as the song, where Seven gets to exploit his weirdness and Doc Daneeka subtly makes his presence known by small interactions between the various worlds contained in the video. Oh, and there’s a very fun guest appearance from XXXY’s cat, why not really?
Doc Daneeka’s From Mine To Mistress EP comes out on Ten Thousand Yen on November 11th and contains four tracks. Preorder FMTM EP on iTunes
