A couple of years ago, some friends took me to the famed weekly party, Low End Theory, to see one of the LA beat scene’s emerging artists, Astronautica. Although it was a while back, I still vividly remember her fantastic set, and it was this memory that spurred me to enlist her for our guest mix series. Since dropping her vibey Waikiki EP on Alpha Pup a few months ago, she’s been quiet on the release front, but she’s been staying busy with studio sessions in between tour dates. Now Astronautica delivers a smooth and eclectic mix of jams to help you get through the day in a positive way. If you’re around in LA this Friday, catch her live at The Do LaB event with Dimond Saints!

With his stand out productions, DJ expertise, and new label, Formula Records, Champion is quickly gaining the trust of many around the world, and major players in the scene are taking notice.

It’s been two years since Chi Duly‘s Balloons of Haus, the remix album that did victory laps around the internet with a cosign from The Weeknd himself.

Taken under the wing of the trusted Defected Records, Cuebur is now making noise on an international stage with releases like his recent album, For Headz Only, while strengthening his presence in his local scene.
