Like a phoenix rising from its ashes, the third installment of my Haute & Bothered mixtape series has arrived after a year’s hiatus. The aesthetic draws heavily from certain tracks that disavow basic genre umbrellas, and after crawling out of the deep house black hole that I found myself in the last year, it seemed right to enter the autumnal equinox with a grip of new tracks that subscribe to this mantra from the likes of Curses, Canblaster, SCNTST, as well as an original track from myself mixed into the fray.
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.

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.
This year our favorite festival has a very special addition that we are all very excited to experience. The Yuma Stage is a new feature at Coachella that is stacked with some of the top DJs and legends of the deep house scene. To some this is probably everything you have dreamed of; while to others the names and the music might be unfamiliar. Not to worry though because I have crafted a mix that hopes to encapsulate the vibes played throughout the Yuma the next two weekends. Take a listen to prepare yourself for Coachella’s newest stage. It’s going to be a glorious two weeks!
There is something very appealing about these new G-House tracks starting to surface. Deep house basslines and hip hop vocals blend together seamlessly, bringing a fresh new funk to the dance floor. Tapesh is on the front-lines of this new style and recently released his version of Tyga’s hit Rack City. As always…Listen. Download. Enjoy!
Following their chart-topping collaborative EP release Careless, the infamous slime of duo Jack Beats has teamed up with label collective OWSLA once again with an evolved sound (that we’re really happy to hear). Off their forthcoming EP Somebody To Love, their first single off the release “Just A Beat” is a deeper and minimally executed (almost garage-like) production that still rings true to the signature Jack Beats sound we’ve all grown to salivate over.

Last March, Beckwith rocked the deep house community dropping Subway EP, his first full release on Anjunadeep. Craymal EP is Beckwith’s second release with Anjunadeep and it’s beyond strong. The EP has three huge tracks that all stand on their own, with each one showcasing it’s own unique vibe.

Lately I have been feeling a little under the weather, but I haven’t let it get me down, with the right music I firmly believe you can make the best of almost any situation.
