Virginia-bred and LA-based Petey Clicks has been on a tear since stepping out as a solo act. Signed to AC Slater‘s Party Like Us Records, Petey has been producing some bass nasty heat and continues to cross genre barriers like a BAWSE.
With “BAE”, the title track for his forthcoming EP, we hear a fresh chord progression, accented with some playful vox – all bundled together to make one solid, summer-toned bass tuneage.
BAE is out August 12th on Party Like Us Records. Listen to it here.
From Long Beach to Hollywood to Santa Barbara, the Summer party scene in Southern California is a season like no other. From sunset cruises up the coast to rooftop pool parties, nothing beats Summer party season in Southern California. And these types of shindigs, of course, require the right kind of music to set the tone of the party. One track that has perfectly encapsulated Southern California’s sophisticated Summer sound thus far in 2014 has been “Thinking About It” by Just Kiddin. ”Thinking About It” is a shimmering ray of sunbeam House that has not only taken the West Coast by storm, it’s been charring speakers all around the world this Summer with support by world class artists like The Magician, Clean Bandit, Blonde & Annie Mac (just to name a few). For a couple of dudes from Kettering of Northamptonshire in the East Midlands of England, Just Kiddin sure do know a thing or two about Summertime.
FFRR have teamed up with Eton Messy (along with Win Music stateside) on this brilliant release – “Thinking About It” is available NOW on Beatport for your downloading pleasure.
Press play. Get tan.
One of the biggest tracks of the HARD Summer weekend is a recent FREE giveaway from a young producer by the name of JAUZ.

This tune goes from zero to beast and has NIGHT BASS written all over it. Big ups Buygore for this freebie, and keep watch on JAUZ for more madness like this one…
The deep sounds of Copenhagen’s KANT have landed our favorite remix on Blonde‘s new Higher Ground EP. The uplifting melodic original has summer written all over it, but KANT’s version unleashes all the feels – so much that it landed ‘Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune’ this month on BBC Radio 1. If you don’t already know his production, this track is like the the lovechild of Mark Knight and The Magician. Listen below, and grab it when itdrops on August 3rd.

Gonna toss this playlist on and go lay under a fan and think about cool parties I’ve been to. Hump DAAAAYUH.

Without a doubt, Jungle’s self titled debut album is one of 2014′s finest (see our review HERE). Another artist having an equally amazing 2014 is Lxury. And now…having heard that Lxury has remixed one of the standout tracks from Jungle’s oh-so brilliant album? Well that just takes 2014 to a whole other level. Lxury adds his signature wizardry to Jungle’s “Time”, turning the Electro Funk original into a blissful journey through synth utopia.
