So proud of our mate and fellow LA resident Valentino Khan. After smashing a Diplo & Friends mix for BBC and the recent release of his production “Bubble Butt” ft. Bruno Mars, Tyga, and 2 Chainz for the forthcoming Major Lazer album, the young gun now prepares to serve as direct support for The Bloody Beetroots (live) spring tour. 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. Jump on these 2 below, and check out the tour dates to go see him w/ the Beetroots!
This week’s guest mix comes courtesy of the Oakland resident and bass music maestro, Gladkill. After seeing him kick off his Summer festival season as a headliner for the sold-out Lucidity Festival, I was certain that we needed to feature him. If you’re not already familiar with Gladkill, he has built a name around his soulful brand of melodic dubstep that provides for an emotive, down-to-earth vibe. He launches his brand new mix series, “Sessions,” that serves to showcase some of his new original music while exploring sonic and spacial territories.
In the midst of this guest mix and his recent performances, he has been deep in the studio gearing up for a stacked schedule of more live dates and festivals including Lightning in a Bottle, Shambhala, Bounce Festival and Enchanted Forest, among others. Enjoy this mix, and keep an eye out for future installments of his mix series, as well as a new release due out in Fall 2013.
So Good To Me was easily considered one of the top tracks of 2012 and a prominent force that brought Chris Malinchak new fans across the globe. Since its first release back in October (official release was May 5th), not many producers have attempted to reconstruct this classic into their own. This notion changed though when the UK up-and-comer, Ejeca, dropped his free remix earlier this week. His version reworks the original vocals into a chopped up, jackin house club remix. Don’t sleep on this one or any tunes from Ejeca!
As the temperatures rise, so does our anticipation for HARD Summer Music Festival. In preparation for the incredibly eclectic lineup, HARD has created a mixtape series for the younger guns on the billing called the Future Stars Mini-Mix series.

It’s officially starting to feel like summer time in LA. The sun is shining, girls are out by the pool, and the disco tunes keep flowing.

Pour yourself a drink and enjoy the free download!
The recent release of Dim Mak Record’s freshman class compilation NEW NOISE VOL. 4 featured many new faces on the scene, one of which being our LA Aussie mate Craig Williams leading the brigade with his single “So Shake”. The track pairs a gritty bassline with a dirty vocal sample of “Shake whatcha momma gave ya” – a fusion of techno, electro and hip hop make this one a staple example of Dim Mak’s NEW NOISE movement. Listen to it below, and pick it up today on Beatport!

Sweet, Sweet, disco nectar delivered strait to your door. This sun-kissed ultra funky mix mutates & cultivates the vibes of Tropicool‘s essence in the South Bay. Everything is in full bloom, the birds, bees, and the myrts feel it. The sand is warm and the micheladas are frosty. Poseidon is holding a conch shell to his ear, and the vibration station is starting to reverberate. Perv and swerve, because for this one, you’re meant to loose control while on cruise control.
“We are so excited to finally release this EP to you all for FREE!!! These are some of our favorite tunes to date. Cultivation features a Moombah-tempo Electro track and a giant Electro-Trap tune that will surely make the dancefloor shake! We truly appreciate all the support everyone has been giving us and we hope you enjoy this release as much as we do.”
