LA’s Ruff Hauser has been pushing the boundaries of bass music for over a decade now, and today he launches the debut release of his new Cats & Boots imprint with his Rotate Them Hips EP. His booty-tech monster was doing the rounds with DJs from the dirtybird and Anabatic camps before he assembled a top-shelf crew to remix the track  that includes Mark Starr, Troy Kurtz, Roy Wilkins, Ghostea, and Perfect Driver. Having already been played on both BBC1 and Rinse FM prior to the release, there’s a fair bit of hype around the package, and we’re excited about the prospects of another rising music label for the West Coast. You can pick up the release now on Beatport.

Bixel Boys have been keeping busy as of late, working on new music, dominating the SoCal club circuit, and as of today, launching a new mixtape series: Bixtape. With each episode centered around the influence and products of a particular city. Starting things off, of course, is the Boys’ hometown of Los Angeles. Full of LA-based artists like Justin Jay, Shlohmo, CBG and Kendrick Lamar, the mixtape is a dope little blend of every kind of sound. The boys have a real ear for pleasing sounds, so whatever droll activity you have to go through today (which if you’re in LA is probably traffic) make sure you plug this into your speakers. Looking forward to the future cities the duo will explore in the Bixtape series, which you can keep updated on by following their Soundcloud.
