Can’t end the year without a little more sweat! Our aussie brethren label Sweat It Out has dished out the Club Sweat Workout Series Volume 2, the follow up compilation featuring some young guns from our side of the planet – a devilish medley of bass driven belters and upfront house music. Here’s what the Sweat crew had to say about the release:
Hard to believe Sweat It Out began nearly 9 years ago (feeling old – ouch). At the time, we debated whether the origin of the name was because we used to eat hot thai food on a Tuesday with the goal of sweating out the weekend (weird that we didn’t think this should have been done on a Monday but I digress), or whether it was because of the amount of sweat AJAX would let out whilst dj’ing.
What we did agree on was a love of sweaty basements and music for such surrounds. Our WORKOUT SERIES epitimises exactly that.
Here we present 5 tunes that are made for clubs of around 200 people, with sweat dripping off the ceiling and heads turned slightly sideways. Shall we say, where we feel most at home.
Big love to SMALLTOWN DJs, RUMPUS, J.WORRA, COSELLA, FROM DROP TILL DAWN, LYNDON KIDD, and last but not least, BRILLSTEIN – you all killed it!

Up-and-comer Loosid has been peaking a fair amount of the interest with only a handful of releases over 10 days. Another anonymous figure, I’m beginning to see a theme here. Regardless of the mysterious details surrounding the producer, the project is impressive, crossing over genres effortlessly and skillfully. The previous releases include trap, house, and future house, stepping into a new arena today with this John Mayer remix. Without further ado, enjoy this glitchy-yet-melodic take on the classic jam.

GDD has teamed up with Healthgoth.com to bring you a definitive soundtrack for your workouts. We’ve enlisted some of our favorite DJs and producers to make mixes for you to blast in your headphones to help drown out the Top 40 and help you finish that last rep. The first mix comes correct from Philadelphia Street Bass God, Starkey, with an hour of grime and heavy bass to celebrate his new record, BA66, which just dropped on SMOG. Tune in and get to sweating.
Virginia-bred and LA-based Petey Clicks has been on a tear since stepping out as a solo act. Signed to AC Slater‘s Party Like Us Records, Petey has been producing some bass nasty heat and continues to cross genre barriers like a BAWSE.
With “BAE”, the title track for his forthcoming EP, we hear a fresh chord progression, accented with some playful vox – all bundled together to make one solid, summer-toned bass tuneage.
BAE is out August 12th on Party Like Us Records. Listen to it here.
The homies at Boomrat are rounding up the homies over here for their neat, new DJ Bag playlist series, starting things off with BONES himself. Tune in above, or head to their platform for the finest selections in bass heavy house and garage, from my main man, the booty rumbling Lord of Lowend himself. Gonna toss this playlist on and go lay under a fan and think about cool parties I’ve been to. Hump DAAAAYUH.
This is magic. One of the best sets I’ve heard in a while, and I categorically dislike DJ sets. Biggups Mija. Skrillex is the man. Listen.
Last week, Treasure Fingers dropped a wobbly, club monster in the form of Honey Dip. While he reigned supreme for years at that top of the ‘nu-disco’ field, it appears he’s since disavowed his affiliation with the glazed genre and shifted efforts to making some manic house tracks, and we really couldn’t be any happier. Today, we’re premiering the Sluggers remix of said track. After gaining a bit of momentum with releases on OWSLA and Fools Gold, the Miami duo are quickly carving out a name for themselves. Enjoy their free download of Honey Dip below, and get hyped to hear more from these new kids on the block.
Over the course of the last month, UK producer Hostage has given away a free track every week. As a consumer of dance music, that’s one hell of a great deal. We’ve been longstanding fans and supporters of Hostage for years, harking back to the golden era of banging bloghaus. He’s since shifted his focus to making tidy house cuts, all the while keeping faithful to his roots in bass music. Grab all four tracks below, and keep an eye out for the man because you never know when he’ll give away an EP’s worth of tunes away for free.
After a string of releases with Main Course and OWSLA, Wuki has firmly established himself in the ranks of producers blurring the genre lines while being firmly rooted in bass. We’re proud to give away his bootleg of Dog Blood’s Chella Ride, which is an absolute monster of a track. Broken drums, riotous vocal chops and hyped chords make this a peak-time weapon.

Here’s how to absolutely nail it: take everyone’s favorite Outkast songs, cover them (beautifully) over a a beat that sounds more Disclosure than Disclosure themselves, throw in plenty of pitch play, blast out, set blogs aflame.
Z, you hereby have my co-sign. Whoever you are.
Is it Disclosure trolling us by putting out something so Disclosurey? Does this mean that they will be performing with not only Mary J. Blige but also with Outkast at Coachella? In The Pyramid? Do I know who Z is?
