The Venezuelan duo Fur Coat have spent the last few years climbing the rungs of the underground ladder and are firmly planted at the top. Since the release of their 2012 anthem ‘You & I‘, the duo has shifted gears from sing-along deep house tunes to chugging, techno burners as reflected by their most recent Crosstown Rebels release, U Turn. After a strong summer touring clubs like DC10 in Ibiza and Treehouse in Miami, Fur Coat gave our friends over at Boomrat an inside look into their secret weapons. Stream the entire playlist below.

Non-Classically trained by the affected minds over at Gotta Dance Dirty, the Los Angeles-based duo, The Interns, took the season by storm lighting up EDC Las Vegas, Hollywood Pool Parties, San Francisco Nightlife, and the High Seas of Californ-i-a.

Now they launch ‘The Interns Present:’ a bi-monthly mix series that takes on the plight of the 9-5. Their debut “Day Off” mixtape features an eclectic array of soulful House music and playful bass-lines that give way to interstellar sonic escapism.

What you’re about to hear are the tunes that carried The Interns to their true calling – behind the decks…#FuckDesks.

Tracklist coming soon…

After becoming the most talked about party in Los Angeles, AC Slater‘s NIGHT BASS movement set out on a 12 dates in 12 days tour with bass house heavyweights Jack Beats, Hannah Wants, Kry Wolf and the man himself. The tour was a success in every city they invaded, but something special was planned for its LA date this past Friday, October 10th. AC Slater teamed up with HARD to bring together one massive event in the warehouse district of downtown Los Angeles, where the infamous Lot 613 was set to play home to the festivities. With the help of Gary Richards and the HARD team, NIGHT BASS quickly became the hype of the weekend and sold out before the night even started.

Room 1 featured the tour lineup, along with NIGHT BASS residents BONES & Petey Clicks. They got things started quickly, as the room filled up and packed out within the first hour. The much anticipated Hannah Wants came after with a huge set, followed by the chief AC Slater bringing it heavy and Jack Beats keeping the energy so alive it was literally spilling out of the room. Capping off the night was a secret set from Kry Wolf, who let his jackin vibes speak for themselves as the night went into the early morning.

Along with the tour lineup, AC brought in friends to take care of room 2: Anna Lunoe, Treasure Fingers, Amtrac, Light Year and Jen Lasher to the rescue. Room 2 was equally slammed, a wider room layout but just as crazy as it’s heavier neighbor. Only in LA can so many incredible artists happen to be in the same town on multiple tour schedules that culminate to one massive experience. The hype was so real that other big names in dance music couldn’t stay away. The likes of Boys Noize, Nadastrom, Kaskade, GTA, Destructo, Jauz, Brazzabelle, and even Valentino Khan‘s mustache we’re all in attendance.

The NIGHT BASS movement proved that it’s hear to stay, and its home is in Los Angeles. The tour dominated its 12 show routing across the US, and looks forward to continuing its monthly series here in LA along with new tours and festival stages in the works… be on the lookout for live set recordings from the whole night and more info on upcoming events!

What more can we say about our man Figgy?  We’re on board with everything he does, so not only are we thrilled that his new EP “Missing You” came out this week, we’re also proud of & happy for the man himself for releasing the EP on his very own label, Cut & Dry.  The EP is everything we’ve come to expect (and love) from Figgy.  It’s four wonderful tracks filled with his trademark sound: multi-layered, rich, soulful tracks at a cruising speed no higher than 115bpm.

Get on board with the “Missing You” EP.
