The eve of revolution is upon us… the Los Angeles mystery that is Whiiite has been cast upon the blogosphere in the form of the first chapter to his saga – a graphic novel telling the tale of how Whiiite came to be, who he was, and maybe, what his purpose will be for? We’ll have to watch (above) and see what happens…

First debuted in his mix for Diplo&Friends on BBC Radio 1xtra, our friend Valentino Khan‘s new tune, “Cavepaint,” goes into the Jurassic era with caveman chatter and enough pumping bass to feel like you’ve been hit over the head with a club. “Cavepaint” also comes along with a Trap VIP counterpart, where Valentino slows it down and brings in the real dinosaur bass. What is dinosaur bass you say? Only one way to find out. And make sure to catch Val’s upcoming remix for Felix Cartal out on Dim Mak in the next few weeks!

The Parisian young gun known as DJ Snake has been riding huge hype since his breakout Bird Machine EP, and to show his fans some TLC he just released a FREE remix of AlunaGeorge‘s “You Know You Like It” on his soundcloud. The original was already a huge jam and the Bondax remix that followed bumped it up even more, but Snake’s version is pure fire no matter if you’re into trap tempos or not. Don’t sleep on this one, most definitely a summer staple.

All amidst, he is kickstarting another weekly giveaway with a double download of his massive intro track “Luxe”, kept in secret for almost a year now. if you hadn’t of guessed it, he created a “Trap myself” version on top of it, which is equally as filthy.

As everyone knows now, the new Knife Party EP Haunted House is exactly the type of bone crushing production as we could have expected, with “Power Glove” proving that in its POTATO WILL EAT YOU exclusive premiere. BUT – there is something new that needs to be recognized. The standout tune for us on the release is LRAD, a hard hitting festival weapon that sounds like an evil brother to the overly saturated field of cookie cutter big room electro these days. This one is a whole ‘nother animal, expect this one to be pounded on main stages all summer long…

LRAD (ORIGINAL MIX)

In the swarm of remixes that rapidly emerged after the EP was released, the LA via New Hampshire transplant CRNKN just smashed the cleanest of the crop. Fans of RL Grime or Flosstradamus will get what I’m talking about ;)
