Best wishes & happy hunting.
With my nice leather jacket fresh of the closet for the season, as well as more beanies than I can unapologetically admit to owning and wearing, it’s official: it’s getting cold. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of fall & the things that come with it: rosy cheeks, cozy fireplaces, pumpkin or apple EVERYTHING, and so on, but there’s something I’ll always miss about the kiss of summer that kind of comes with being a california girl (damn you, Katy Perry..)
As the winter chill nips at our heels, it’s nice to reminisce about the warm days of summer, where being out in the sun inevitably leads to a happier disposition, more dance parties, and from a chemical perspective, an increase in your body’s production of eumelanin. Pretty much the stuff that your skin creates to protect your cells from getting their DNA damaged by the sunlight, since it’s pigmented a higher level of melanin would mean a darkened skin color. Viola, a tan!
Below are what I can laughably call my very own musical tanning-bed, your own little reminder of summer. Put on your favorite pool party ensemble, bust out the Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville Margarita Maker, and shake your booty to these sun-lovin, summer-drippin tunes.
Our very own Troy Kurtz brings you a truly unique mix of solid house grooves in his signature sexy suave, to commemorate his momentous relocation from Miami to LA. May this be a sign of more great things to come. Welcome to your new home, bud.
More from MadTech here to set your weekend off on a hot one. They’re consistently grabbing new talent in the universe of UK Bass, Funky and the experimental.

Ese’ & Zain have just released their Political Sirens EP for FREE on Soundcloud. The original mix is a gritty slab of techno that has a Harvard Bass/Autoerotique feel to it. The 2 remixes however send this tune to the main stage: the first being a techy club-driven rework from PTN, and an explosive moombahcore remix from Goseffects that rivals Alvin Risk and Nadastrom.

Detroit-born producer & fashion photographer, Jimmy Edgar, has been making beats for over a decade now. Snatching all kinds of influences from his city’s eclectic music scene, without a doubt one powerful element stands out from the rest… SEX. This is a man who titled a track ‘I Want To Be Your STD‘, and an album ‘XXX‘. Creating mystery and dramatic/sexual tension are the main goals in his sound.
