Most Los Angelians know Mike Brillstein as a legend. Whether consciously or not, anyone who’s ever been to a club where any good music was played has likely, nay definitely vibed out to one of Mike’s sets. With fine taste and a penchant for house music, he’s finally made a serious foray into the production world with his new alter ego “Brillstein“. After his two collaborations with Jesse Rose last year, he’s venturing off on his own with a six-track mini EP, Back To Bed, which sees its initial release on Play It Down next week.

Friend of GDD (actually who am I kidding, friend of near every music person ever to do anything in Los Angeles) Mike Brillstein, known to many as Thee Mike B, has been making house music. And it’s f**king good. Over the past year we’ve seen him foray into a new moniker as Brillstein, collabing with Play It Down boss and house champion Jesse Rose on tracks like “Shuffle The Paper” and “Good Wife”. I was hearing big dudes like Loco Dice slamming Shuffle The Paper in sets for months. As Brillstein, Mike B is a heavy-hitter, keeping elements in his tracks that punch you right in the stomach and leave a mark. This year he announced his debut LP on Jesse’s label, which gets released at the end of the month. For now, he’s dropped off a new original for free download. Should be a clear indicator of the smashing direction that the LP will head in – the first track of which just premiered over on Pulse Radio.
Get the download above, and be sure to nab your copy of Brillstein’s Back To Bed LP, which comes out on Play It Down on April 29.

Our LA friends Oliver and Thee Mike B did a funky new update on the Blondie classic “Heart Of Glass”, paying homage to the golden tune and also not a bad way to groove into the summer vibes… here’s what they had to say:
“We wanted to give something away when we hit 10K on Twitter. This one is for all the fans and DJs that have supported us, we love you! This is a record that we grew up with as children so we wanted to keep it classic, and groovy. Hope you enjoy it!”
Our good buddy Thee Mike B and his pal Dirty Dave have thrown together this absolutely stellar retrospective mix for your listening pleasure. If you’re a fan of dance music (safe assumption, seeing as you’re reading this) then I sincerely hope you’re taking the time to educate yourself on the origins of your favorite music. Whether it be Skrillex, Boys Noize, or Swedish House Mafia (RIP) that is your current flavor of the week, everything has a beginning, and this mix does an excellent job of exploring the origins of what’s currently blasting through your Beats by Dre.

And don’t forget to stop by The Well’s site to thank them for having the guys put this mix together.
Scion A/V will be releasing a new EP from Los Angeles’ own (Thee) Mike B tomorrow for free on their website, but today they’ve given us the world premiere of ‘Iration’, a collaborative track with Steven Bloodbath from the 7-track release, Tite At Nite. ’Iration’ shows a deeper side of what you’d expect from the widely respected LA resident, using pitched down vocals and a minimalistic approach to create a must-have late-nighter. Make sure to pick up the entire EP tomorrow over at Scion A/V.
