Last year, I randomly discovered this emerging South East London duo, Howson’s Groove, and I was immediately taken in by their strikingly fresh, eclectic sound. After hearing their pair of EPs and remixes, I thought it was time for us to feature them in our guest mix series. Now Howson’s groove has delivered a captivating mix of Garage, House, and Post-Dubstep that sheds light on the increasingly sought-after UK sound. We’re looking forward to hearing more from this promising act. Enjoy!

Coming off of a momentous 2013 including performances alongside some of his idols and an appearance on GDD’s Wide Awake Art Car at EDC Las Vegas, SURF AMBASSADOR HENDO enters the new year with a renewed vigor and refined vision for his career. In this mix, he brings us a diverse selection of new, old, and unreleased sun-soaked grooves that bring the heat. Check out the outstanding mix below, but before you jump in, here’s an important message from the man himself…
“As 2014 begins to unfold, I’ve decided to simplify a bit. I will be DJ-ing under the name Hendo come this Spring. This exclusive GDD™ Guest Mix is one of the last mixtapes I will do under the name Surf Ambassador Hendo. With a few songs in the works, some great future lineups, and a fresh twist on my mixing style, I’m really looking forward to spreading The Froth this year as I’m only just getting started…”
I absolutely loved Wankelmut & Emma Louise’s single “My Head is A Jungle” when I first heard it last January, and now I can’t be more stoked to premiere this remix from Friend Within today! FW gives the track the deep bouncy house treatment with gorgeous haunting vocals that makes it perfect for peak hour clubs or underground warehouses at 6am. Out officially September 15th!
Wankelmut is a subtle star. It’s not common for DJs who sell over 1.3 million copies for an official remix on Sony and garner 100 million plays on YouTube to be “behind the scenes” so to speak, but it appears that Berlin-based Wankelmut doesn’t need a Billboard cover or a headline festival slot to keep doing what he loves. Back in January, Wankelmut released “My Head Is A Jungle” featuring Emma Louise, which was championed by Pete Tong and Annie Mac vigorously on BBC Radio 1 in addition to strong DJ support around the world. 8 months later, the big tune will be seeing a re-release on Positiva, featuring the original accompanied by 6 mixes including remixes from MK, Friend Within, Gui Boratto, Solee, and Kasper Bjorke as well as an extended Vocal Mix from the original producer. The EP will be released on September 15th, but until then, stream the MK remix as well as the original below.
