Just over a week ago LA-massive Mad Decent dropped a five-flush remix pack of Elliphant‘s “Only Getting Younger feat. Skrillex” on their Soundcloud and like some of the best things in life that shit is free.99! Predictably all of the tracks are heavy hitters, ranging from big-room horn-heavy bounce vibes from TJR and Brazzabelle to the moombahton-tempo squaks of the Milo & Otis remix, to the sped-up DnB halftime version from DJ Vice & Justyle, to my personal favorite sort of experimental melodic trap/beats version from NGTMRE and Imanos. Regardless of what your style or taste is, this is a classic encompassing Mad Decent Party Pack that not only showcases a festival-ready range of styles but also a great look at some of LA’s biggest and baddest upcoming talents.
You can preview the whole pack below and download them over on the Mad Decent Soundcloud.
This is magic. One of the best sets I’ve heard in a while, and I categorically dislike DJ sets. Biggups Mija. Skrillex is the man. Listen.

Chris White (aka Whiiite) has cultivated his budding career right here Los Angeles, becoming an influential producer/DJ and impresario that helped build the local dance scene into what it is today. With this Whiiite project, he takes his career to new heights with a unique superhero graphic novel series that synchs up with each of his EPs to tell the epic story of Whiiite, his origin and powers, and the villains he faces – with each character having their own sound. From a genre standpoint, he boasts a deep catalog of heavy-hitting trap, electro-house, techno, and more that features his distinctive studio touch. As a DJ, he’s known for his high-energy sets that are as eclectic as they are captivating, and this guest mix is a prime example of that.
