While Miami is most notorious for the madness that occurs every March for WMC and Ultra Music Festival, thousands of art and music lovers from across the world converge in the beginning of December for Art Basel. We kicked things off in style last night at our weekly Slap & Tickle party at the beloved Electric Pickle with LA’s Rick Rude, and are gearing up for a massive evening tomorrow night at one of Miami’s newest venues, The Garage. The rising UK duo Bondax will be preforming an exclusive Art Basel set alongside Body High label boss Samo Sound Boy. The best part about this event is that its FREE, as long as you head over to the Slap & Tickle page and send us your names before 6pm tomorrow. To get you in the mood, check out the latest Slap & Tickle promo mix.
I was truly taken aback when I first heard Mosh‘s full-length album Monarchy. I felt like I had time-traveled back to 2007, when French electro acts like Justice and SebastiAn ruled the roost. I remember after Cross dropped a plethora of people began to experiment with DAWs, attempting to recreate those magical rock-inspired French grooves. Now nearly five years later, Mosh has succeeded where most have failed.
Mosh’s album Monarchy is a true full-length album. Mosh has not only managed to make Monarchy listenable in its entirety, but has also made it enjoyable from start to finish. Monarchy encapsulates everything that made 2007 seem so special, throws it into a blender and serves it up cold. The album really has it all: hip-hop inspired house beats, dark distorted bass lines, head-nodding grooves, and most importantly, power.
Mosh was also kind enough to put together an exceptional mix just for you. Both his album and the mix are available for FREE download below.

Crawling into the land of the living on Hallows eve, the creature is back. It took several necessary body parts to create this monster, and so the wait is finally over. I’m excited for this one because it really embodies some of the harder sets I’ve been playing lately, while also premiering some brand spankin new music from the likes of Boys Noize, Dillon Francis, Gesaffelstein, Botnek, Galantis (project trifecta of Savage Skulls, Miike Snow, Style Of Eye) and many more. The season is upon us, so listen to this and cause some mischief and mayhem, wake the dead, dance with the devil, get high, get mid, get low – pick your poison dirty dancers, and Happy Halloween.

This Week in the Mix
We have finally reached the most sought-after day of the week, and what better than receiving a handful of great new mixes fit for the soundtrack of your weekend. October mixes are plentiful as Mighty Mouse, TheFatRat, Aeroplane, and Drop Out Orchestra all deliver their own unique brand of dance music. Also, Crookers address their breakup with an appropriate “Don’t be sad” mix.
There is no day that is more appropriate for slow-jams than Sunday. To my surprise, Late Nite Tuff Guy, just put out a most excellent remix of Lionel Richie’s “Easy,” and whether you’re just getting up or you’re out running errands, the smooth, sexy sounds from LNTG can be enjoyed at any time. In supplementing this awesome track, I’ve included a download of his One Nite In A Disco mix that is a must-have for any disco enthusiast. It seems as though this is just the beginning for LNTG, and I can’t wait for what’s to come from the mysterious Aussie.
