Chris White (aka Whiiite) has cultivated his budding career right here Los Angeles, becoming an influential producer/DJ and impresario that helped build the local dance scene into what it is today. With this Whiiite project, he takes his career to new heights with a unique superhero graphic novel series that synchs up with each of his EPs to tell the epic story of Whiiite, his origin and powers, and the villains he faces – with each character having their own sound. From a genre standpoint, he boasts a deep catalog of heavy-hitting trap, electro-house, techno, and more that features his distinctive studio touch. As a DJ, he’s known for his high-energy sets that are as eclectic as they are captivating, and this guest mix is a prime example of that.
We couldn’t be more proud of our own, Tropicool. He just signed to Bond Music Group, taking the deep disco world by storm, and is about to head out on a sold out North America tour with the young prodigy, Kygo. Tropicool just dropped off quite an amazing soundtrack, in the form of a mix, cleverly entitled ‘Moonrise Barometer’. It’s nothing short of silky-smooth, and self-proclaimed to ‘be for interstellar lays, moonlit poolside daze, and warm glistening rays.’ It’s deep, sexy, & feel good. Don’t sleep on this, and hopefully you’re lucky enough to catch one of the dates below!

It’s about to be my first summer in Los Angeles and I’ve quickly come to realize that four on the floor all day long can get a little toasty. I’ve been digging through the SoundCloud archives to find some indie tunes that tickle my fancy and I’ve started to see a different side of the musical spectrum again. I’ve put together a playlist with some rock and alternative vibes that’ve left me quite tantalized as of late. From California locals, to Auzzie jam bands, and various talents that have cooled me off for the first couple heat waves that hit LA County, the goal is to feature new talent that’s ripe for the Summer season, so check back weekly and consider this your musical A/C unit for the coming months!
One of our favorite underground labels, Get Twisted Records, recently hit its one year mark. The Tough Love imprint is celebrating in style with the release of “Reminiscence 2014″. The album features 13 of Get Twisted’s biggest tracks released in the past 12 months including heavy hitters from Hannah Wants, Chris Lorenzo, Denney as well as fast rising stars such as Origins Sound & Bordertown (plus many more), compiled & mixed by Tough Love.
The Tough Love imprint Get Twisted is a young, underground House label from across the pond that has separated itself from other labels by finding the perfect combination of professionalism & fun. We had a chance to talk to the Tough Love crew about the rise of Get Twisted and its future along with the anniversary album & mix. Here’s what they had to say….
The versatile producer/DJ, MOTSA, from Vienna, Austria, has been delivering world-class original tracks and remixes since his first release just eleven months ago. Already supported by luminaries such as Sasha, Steve Lawler, and John Digweed, this gifted rising star is seeing success with his deep, soulful brand of bass heavy house that’s uniquely his own. MOTSA has now come through with this flawless mix that brings back the vibes from some of my favorite warehouse parties and the like. Feel free to download the mix for safe keeping, and expect a new remix from MOTSA coming out on the Vienna-based label, Jhruza Records, in mid-June.
Last year, I randomly discovered this emerging South East London duo, Howson’s Groove, and I was immediately taken in by their strikingly fresh, eclectic sound. After hearing their pair of EPs and remixes, I thought it was time for us to feature them in our guest mix series. Now Howson’s groove has delivered a captivating mix of Garage, House, and Post-Dubstep that sheds light on the increasingly sought-after UK sound. We’re looking forward to hearing more from this promising act. Enjoy!
