It’s playoff season in the NBA which can only mean one thing: Pat Lok is PLAYOFF READY. Just like Steph Curry, just like LeBron…Pat Lok elevates his (remix) game during playoff season (playoff season in this case meaning that special time of the year when Spring creeps into Summer & all the grooviest songs are produced). When taking on an Indie heavyweight like The Knocks, Pat Lok didn’t flail like Chris Paul or flop like Blake Griffin (can you tell I hate the Clippers?!?)…he calmly stepped back & hit the game winner. Check out his remix of “Classic” below & replay that game winning groove over & over…
Queens, NY artist Dart Party poses the question “Are You In?” on his fantastic new single (featuring the talented Govales on vocals). If Dart Party is talking about an all encompassing track that’s a little bit House, a little bit Disco, a little bit Electro and a lotta bit Dance, then YES…we are in. This forward thinking, versatile Dance track shines beautifully with its shimmering, soulful vocals, making this the perfect track to dance your Summer nights away to.
“Are You In” is out NOW via Crazy Heart Records. [iTunes]

Doesn’t get more LA than a fluid and bouncy remix of a Rihanna single from a yet-to-be-known producer. So here we are, ready to be blasted from car stereos with the windows down. Little known about Young Prince as of yet, other than he’s purposefully anonymous and residing somewhere in the depths of Los Angeles county. Rihanna’s single is booming – a stomping, in-your-face announcement rather fitting as a lead single for a new album, especially our darling bold RiRi. Somehow, Young Prince strips things to a shinier place, literally flooding the production with dripping synths. Normally something so esoteric isn’t necessarily assertive, yet Young Prince sonically delivers something that commands your ears and the room, stripping none of the booming energy from the original whilst shifting the mood and aesthetic to an entirely different place.
Intrigued to see what’s next from this mystery producer, I imagine it’s going to be good if you kick off with an official Rihanna remix….
