Life’s a bitch and then you die. The haunting lyrics of Nas on his recent single have been echoed through the years of hip-hop. Dallas newcomer Zander has given us the reason to live up the motto in his low-end driven house flip, with a deep wobble, stabbing bassline and a hint of breaks for good measure. Fans of Jack Beats, Amine Edge & Dance and Tchami will be all over this one. Grab it below for FREE DOWNLOAD!
Hold on to your seat, because Insomniac has thrown together one of the biggest parties in LA’s recent memory. G-house originators Amine Edge & Dance will be accompanied by Friend Within, Thee Cool Cats and GDD’s own Bones in one room. All the while, the French Express squad — consisting of Moon Boots, Jonas Rathsman and Perseus — alongside Coco Disco will be bringing heat in their own room. It’s all going down at Exchange LA this Saturday 2/28 from 10pm – 6am. Grab your tickets now!

Back in June, The Magician announced that he would be taking a three month break from putting out any Magic Tapes, much to the dismay of his loyal fans. And much to their delight, The Magician returned last week with Magic Tape Twenty-Five. The anticipation was high for the new mixtape and The Magish couldn’t have picked a better tune to kick off the highly anticipated mix than the Amine Edge & DANCE remix of “Things I Didn’t Know I Loved” by our boy Felix aka Plastic Plates. The crisp, dark groove + haunting vocals not only set the tone of the mixtape, they’re also a perfect indicator that a new equinox is upon us.
Check out the moody Fall vibes with the FREE download below, as well as stream the “Things I Didn’t Know I Loved EP!”
