I always do love a funky acid house groove squelching out of a 303, today is no exception. Sex Panther and FYOR have teamed up to breathe some new life into acid for the mainstage, the likes of which we haven’t seen since Afrojack’s classic “Pacha On Acid.” With a nice amount of support already, it looks to be quite the secret weapon timed for the biggest festival stages– went pretty well when MAKJ dropped it into his Coachella sets, of course. Look to hear plenty more of this one this season, and be sure to look good and wear it well while you do so in the latest by Sex Panther Apparel. Oh, and +10 if you can guess where that sample’s from. ;)

It takes a babe to blog us into festival season, sometimes. Actress, model and music video muse, Victoria Geil, has this weekend covered for ya. The anxious excitement of the drive out to this magical world on the barren edge of nothingness… the total and unapologetic poolside maxing as the sunshine and liquors flow… the punctuated moments of elation… the epic naps that tie it all together.
It’s all here, ladies and gentlemen: this is Coachella, as told by a babe. If you’re a babe, you’ll love this. If you love babes, you’ll need this.
This three mixtape series is conveniently tailored for use from the moment you begin your pilgrimage to the desert, to the moment you return to your respective basecamps upon the fateful completion of that final Sunday set. Get it into you.
Then follow me for more, as we explore BABECHELLA 2: Party Vibes and BABECHELLA 3: Chill Vibes in playlists and commentary.
The Aussie wonder-woman Anna Lunoe hit the ground running this year and hasn’t looked back. Aside from a huge remix EP for her single “Breathe”, Anna also just dropped a new original collaboration ‘BAD MF’ with Treasure Fingers, kickstarted a live mix series called Luney Tunes, and has a full WMC schedule this week in Miami! Oh, did we forget to mention she’s playing one of your favorite tents @ Coachella? Nothing can get in the way of this babe right now and we’re 100% okay with that.
