Here’s his Summertime All The Time take on the Nelly classic. Boppin’, poppin’, sunshiney vibes for when you need to hop into your private #JetLife mindset towards destinations far, far away.

Been hyped on ZHU for ages. Been offered up my co-sign. Breakthrough Artist of 2014. The latest from him just solidifies his mastery of the elusive and fickle form of a deep groove in pop music’s sonic landscape.
As Jonah put it on NEST HQ:
“Once again, ZHU’s flawless vocals steal the show in the new single, but the House/Garage crossover groove lying underneath is also nothing short of spectacular. It’s artists like ZHU that are following just steps behind the Disclosure lads, manufacturing productions that live as perfectly on the dance floor as they do on mainstream radio.”
Debut EP Presale here, available 4/20 (lol sick).

Friend of GDD (actually who am I kidding, friend of near every music person ever to do anything in Los Angeles) Mike Brillstein, known to many as Thee Mike B, has been making house music. And it’s f**king good. Over the past year we’ve seen him foray into a new moniker as Brillstein, collabing with Play It Down boss and house champion Jesse Rose on tracks like “Shuffle The Paper” and “Good Wife”. I was hearing big dudes like Loco Dice slamming Shuffle The Paper in sets for months. As Brillstein, Mike B is a heavy-hitter, keeping elements in his tracks that punch you right in the stomach and leave a mark. This year he announced his debut LP on Jesse’s label, which gets released at the end of the month. For now, he’s dropped off a new original for free download. Should be a clear indicator of the smashing direction that the LP will head in – the first track of which just premiered over on Pulse Radio.
Get the download above, and be sure to nab your copy of Brillstein’s Back To Bed LP, which comes out on Play It Down on April 29.
We saw Summer poking it’s head out and invited it to stay. That means tasty festivals, sun-kissed bike rides along the beach, longer days, better lays, and even, a smashing new fixtape to usher it all in. Strait out of Belgium and just touching down on our Southern california turf, Aeroplane has landed and is here to destroy Coachella in all of its cosmic glory. He says this tape is like a bike ride in space, and we must oblige. After all, thats actually a pretty amazing description of Coachella after all.
