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.
To kick start the festivities for our new monthly party BARBARY COAST in San Francisco – Our House Records affiliate Realboy has bombarded 50 tracks into a 5-minute mini mix, taking you on an accelerated trip through some of the best in electronic (and some true funk for good measure). Realboy will be performing at BARBARY COAST this Wednesday night @ Harlot alongside Clockwork, Samo Sound Boy, and Bones – so make sure you get out there early and beat the rush! Prepare for liftoff….

As I’ve stated before, the DEEP END ventures away from my harder hitting origins and lets you reach the depths of rolling basslines and funky riffs guaranteed to make you swim in your seat. Whether you’re at work, school, in the car, in your room, getting the party started or winding everything down – jump in the DEEP END and explore a different fathom of electronic music.

We’ve had the pleasure of premiering several Keys n Krates tracks in the past, and today, we’re keeping it going, but in a different sense. The one and only Keys N Krates DJ, Flowinsky, has put together a hot 30-minute mix of his current favorite trap. Not only does it have Flowinsky’s precise and tasteful selections, but it also contains a demo version of a new Keys N Krates track on their upcoming EP. Do yourself a favor and get your weekend started early with this mix below and see the tracklist after the jump.
Dim Mak‘s NY transplant Dan Oh has taken up a new alias Brass Fergie – cultivating a wide spectrum of bass-driven sound that saw massive exposure opening the Dim Mak stage @ this year’s Electric Zoo Music Festival. He has teamed up with our mutual friends at THE WELL to bring you a showcase of his new found appeal, featuring an awesome blend of basslines through House, UK Funky, NU-K Garage and Ghetto-tech.
