Just because it’s a weekday, it doesn’t mean you can’t get your party on. Whether it’s on your lunch break at the office or in the comfort of your own home, you certainly should let Kenny Hectyc’s latest mix get you moving!
Cleverly titled “Sunny Side Up,” this new mix is a harmonious blend of deep, soulful, nu disco, and garage house edits. It’s got some great remixes and originals from artists such as Duke Dumont, Basement Jaxx, Sebb Aston, Kiesza, and many more.
Get your sunshine on:
Sunny Side Up Mix 2
The lovely female DJ/producer Hannah Wants has joined forces with Chris Lorenzo for a sublime single, “Signs.”
The track was uploaded to her soundcloud about a year ago, but now it’s finally got a release on Ultra Records.
Featuring the vocals of Janai, this is a chilled-house tune that is perfect for those summer nights in Ibiza (or wherever you get your party on.) :)
The past few weeks, I’ve been switching back/forth from my house music/EDM playlists on Spotify and Pandora. But as of late (especially during my workouts), I’ve really been enjoying the Milk Music App. It’s got a fresh approach to streaming music, it looks cool, and they play good music. Simple.
Aside from interface differences, all of the streaming radio services play a lot of the same music, and one track that seems to make it way into each of my electronic stations is Deorro’s latest masterpiece, “Five Hours.”
You can’t help but to love “Five Hours.” It’s got this edgy vibe, yet still has this retro synth appeal that is perfect for a late-night drive. Albeit, the original is perfect, one thing that it’s missing is a nice vocal touch…which is where this “Don’t Hold Back” vocal mix picks up the “slack.”
Both versions are solid, hands down certified awesome, but I do love that vocal touch.
Don’t Hold Back Remix
In my attempts to wind down from a great weekend, I stumbled across this heavy dosage of deep house & EDM from Oliver Heldens.
Hailing from The Netherlands, Oliver Helden’s is a DJ with a wicked good podcast/mixtape series titled “Heldeep Radio.” And his latest mix, #007, is jam-packed with some infectious cut that will have you dancing like a maniac!
I must say, after listening to this mix I’ve got this strong urge to hit up a dancefloor in DC. It’s been awhile since I’ve been seen at 18th Street Lounge or U Hall, so I think next weekend I must support the local house scene.
But I digress. All I’m saying is this mix from Oliver Heldens is certified awesome and you really need to give it a listen…now!
Heldeep Radio #007
Here are some of the best tracks from the mix. The good stuff:
Twenty Feet Down – When You Need Me (Original Mix)
Sam Smith – Stay With Me (Throttle Remix)
Marshall Jefferson – Move Your Body (Tchami Tribute)
I never thought sub-bass trap could sound so intoxicatingly eargasmic…that is, until I heard/saw RL Grime’s fresh new video for “Core.”
The video has an 80s 8-bit vibe, which is perfect for the 808-styled track that truly takes RL Grime’s reputation as “trap master” to new heights.
Without a question of a doubt, he’s one of my favorite producers/DJs in the trap scene, and I’m totally obsessed with the innovative aura of this video.
See for yourself:
Today’s set of fresh visuals come from London-based drummer/producer/remixer, Linden Jay.
Albeit this video came out last month, “Be Like You” is the perfect fusion of late-night R&B crooning infused with a housey vibe.
