In anticipation of his forthcoming Bring Me Home EP out next week, Prep School Recordings artist Wilks is offering up a free original tune! “Fuck The Barkin” is a fresh mix of contemporary LA deep house and classic ghetto house, fans of Sharam Jey, Kolombo and even Jonas Rathsman will be all over this one… Here’s what the man himself had to say about the track:
“Fuck the Barkin’s chopped and screwed hip-hop vocals are weaved between a chugging bassline and classic house chords. Borrowing samples from ‘1once Again’ by A Tribe Called Quest, this track is both dark and dance-worthy.” -Wilks
Over the past decade and beyond, the recent signee on Steve Angello’s underground-leaning X label, Trent Cantrelle, has been building a reputation not only as an artist with style and integrity, but also as an impresario with his popular parties such as his “Sounds Like” series. He follows up on his latest single, “Born” with Stacy Barthe, to bring us an exclusive Marquee Minimix featuring half an hour of house music handpicked with sophisticated taste. Listen/download the mix below.
Additionally, we were able to chat with Trent about releases on X, how he utilizes his parties artistically, his thoughts on losing the term “deep house,” and more. Check out the interview after the jump and if you’re in NY, see him live this Friday at Marquee NY.
Perseus and his French Express label mates are no strangers to our weekly party in Miami, and the man in charge of the dynamic pack is back on the carpet at Bardot tonight alongside the trio of residents. After storming onto the scene late in 2011, the French Express name has found respect in the underground markets while also having that cross-over appeal that’s seemingly difficult to accomplish. Pre-sale tickets for tonight’s event are still available here. Continue Reading

Hot Since 82 is having a banner year, and the man from Leeds is showing absolutely no signs of slowing. So far this year he’s already had a couple chart topping hits, and I’m claiming his latest remix of Green Velvet to sit comfortably atop the ranks when it sees a release on Circus Recordings. With a commanding bassline that churns under the haunting vocals of Green Velvet, this tune is primed to be doing the rounds across the globe.

Found another diamond in the rough. The Venice Beach native Erik Wilkinson aka Wilks has only emerged on soundcloud a few months ago, but already has the right idea by releasing free originals from the get go. The style provokes classic house chords carried by deep basslines and funky riffs, with vox samples from the likes of Q-Tip, Bob Marley, and The Chili Peppers that prove hauntingly perfect. His most recent single “Ghetto” is below, along with with my other favorites from his so far. Grab these below and follow this dude, let’s see where he goes…
REBELRAVE TV never disappoints!
Crosstown Rebels has enlisted T-E-E-D. to mix the Get Lost VI compilation, getting us very excited for perhaps our finest night of the summer, if not the year… GET LOST LA. Digging very deep, quirky, soulful, a very nice eclectic mix of treats and treasures– particularly the end of track #4, Axel Boman – Klinsmann. So cosmic.
The young LA based label Prep School Recordings have delivered a summer-solid release to carry through this seasons warmer climate. Young guns SNBRN (formerly of No Body) and Mossberg Pump (LED) have cultivated a deeper disco vibe in this 2-track EP, capturing the sound of their Southern California-based origins and as they put are “As fresh as a poolside mojito.” The release just dropped today on Beatport and iTunes, and fans of French Express, Eskimo, and Future Boogie will be all over these tracks. Have a listen below and support these fresh faces!
