2016 is shaping up to be the year of Jack Novak. With seminal plays at Lollapalooza, Firefly Festival, and residencies in Las Vegas and Cancun, it’s getting increasingly more clear that little can stand in her way. Hailing from Chicago but residing in Los Angeles, Novak spent two years holed up in her studio honing her craft and expanding her catalogue before touring with Pharrell as his DJ in 2013. Fast forward to the present and she has her own label, Power and Light Records, and a gaze that will not ease up as she sets her eyes on the prize in 2016.
Her latest podcast features a hearty playlist of tech and deep house cuts along with Jack’s unreleased track with tyDi, “Oceans” featuring Greyson Chance. Stream it below and connect with her on tour after the jump!
After the slaying the Miami masses during WMC this past month, our GDD fav Hot Mouth returns back to the west with the 7th installment of his signature podcast and his final date for the ‘Spring Time Sizzler.’ He concludes the tour in Santa Ana TONIGHT @ The Yost Theater and then next Tuesday @ Dim Mak Studios w/ Felix Cartal & Friends. Make sure to grab the mix below to get you through to the weekend, and if don’t miss these final shows before its too late!
GDD homies and Dim Mak-ians VCO have been very true-to-form studio rats as of late, churning out music left and right. Adding another pot to their busy stove, the duo have decided to launch a bi-weekly podcast more than aptly titled “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”. In true VCO style the mix contains a variety of hollowed, dark techno sprinkled throughout with just a tinge of weirdness. By compiling a rather special selection of artists together, VCO provides an excellent showcase into their style which anyone who’s a fan of the darker side of the electronic spectrum will be more than pleased with and ready for more.
Back again are the Bingo Players with the latest installment of their Hysteria Radio. This months mix currently holds the #8 spot on the iTunes overall music podcast chart and is packed with some hugeee hits like “Pogo,” by Laidback Luke, the ballin’ Tom Staar and Kryder remix of Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy The The Silence” and “Grid” by Bassjackers and Dyro…definitely a few tunes to get you ready for festival season!! And if you’re in New York, I hope you snagged tickets to the Bingo Players’ show Friday at Webster Hall, it’s sure to be epic. Tracklist after the jump!
The beginning of each month HNQO releases a new podcast through his soundcloud showcasing some of the best tracks in deep house. This months podcast titled “Lights of My City” is full of groovy house jams that are the perfect cure for the common frown.
Who is HNQO?
This past July Henrique Oliveira or better known as “HNQO” burst onto the international deep house scene with his release “Point of View” on Hot Creations records. “Point of View” hit number one on the beatport deep house chart and ever since the 22 year old from Brazil has been one to watch.
With an upcoming release on up and coming UK label Midnight Social Recordings & the launch of his own label Playperview, I expect big things from the young Brazilian producer in 2013.
The new-age trance phenom, Maor Levi, delivers his first #MOARBASS podcast episode along with a guest mix from Ilan Bluestone. Kicking things off, Maor is keeping up his hard and heavy style of trance along with a great variety of other crossover-type tracks. With the addition of Ilan Bluestone‘s guest appearance, it’s a jam packed two hours of forward-thinking and danceable music. Have a listen for yourself and keep your eye on Maor for more goodies to come.

I’m not going to lie, I could barely contain my excitement when I heard that Ideal Audio‘s latest podcast featured Electric Rescue. You heard right, the French producer is back with an incredible mix that demonstrates his superior mixing ability but also his impeccable track selection.
Warning: this mix is not for the faint of heart, if you don’t like dark-driving grooves with evil digital undertones then I would steer clear.
