Start your weekend off the right way: with Plastik Funk and Sagan’s new hit. “Got No Love,” released on Armada Deep, is the ultimate house track, complete with intoxicating vocals, killer piano riffs and a feel-good beat that’s perfect for summer. “Got No Love” is bound to get you dancing and we hope this isn’t the last collaboration from these epic artists. Listen to “Got No Love” below.
“I met Sagan at a festival in Ukraine last summer and we were talking about music for hours. I played his latest releases on Hexagon Records in all my sets and definitely was already a fan of his sound. Sagan was following our music for years as well, so after we met in person it was time to do a collab! We can’t wait to release this collab!” –Plastik Funk

Afrojack has teamed up with his pal Fais for another big hit. They collaborated on Used To Have It All and released a remix package for it. One remix in particular is Dirty Audio’s. The LA native’s version is filled with stabbing electro synths and huge drops that will have your body moving involuntarily to the beat. Being selected to produce the official remix for an oustanding artist is yet another step forward in Dirty Audio’s promising young career, especially so since Afrojack was the first DJ that he ever saw live, and thus had a great influence on his aspirations to become a producer himself.
Afrojack is the latest heavy hitter that Dirty Audio has worked with; his previous tracks include a remix of Yellow Claw’s “Ocho Cinco” and his original production with Max Styler, “Roller Coaster.” Both releases were extraordinarily well received by fans and industry tastemakers alike, bolstering Dirty Audio’s resume as he blazes full steam ahead through 2017. He is currently on tour in Australia and New Zealand, bringing his electrifying live sets to all corners of the globe. Look for Dirty Audio to be invading the airwaves or coming to a city near you this year as he rides this unstoppable wave of success.

This past weekend The Growlers took over The Observatory in Santa Ana for their inaugural Beach Goth Festival. For attendees who had never been before, the next two days would be filled with an eclectic line up, good food, and an eccentric crowd of music lovers whose sole goal was to get lost in the experience. Despite Southern California’s rocky forecast with rain and wind, there was no report that was going to ruin a dedicated fans mission to enjoy the days ahead.
If you’re like me parking is always the first task to trump when going to a music festival. Luckily, Beach Goth had teamed up with the OC Fairgrounds and had answered everyone’s parking prayers with affordable parking accompanied by a free shuttle. I personally never waited longer than 10 minutes to hitch a ride and found myself on site and in line within minutes- but we aren’t here to talk about the parking.
To say Beach Goth catered to every music lover’s dreams would be putting it mildly. While Day One focused more on the Indie Pop side with the likes of TLC, Melanie Martinez, Bon Iver, and James Blake; Day Two provided the Underground, Hip Hop, Electronic aspect with Gucci Mane, The Pharcyde, Trippy Turtle, RL Grime, Justice and more.
For those who wanted to see artists inside, it did prove to be a little tricky with the capacity reaching its limit almost every couple of minutes. With two stages inside and a side room to boot, fans were met with guarded doors and lines that felt like sheep being herded to their pen. However, once inside things seemed to ease up for the main room. The crowd that was once rambunctious to get in, easily dispersed between the different levels, providing different vantage points for each fan. It didn’t matter which level you were standing at, The Pharcyde and Ugly God had everyone screaming, while Sebastian and Trippy Turtle had those in attendance bouncing. Unfortunately,The Constellation room was a different story. It always had a line and always had a wait time.
The outside stages proved to be one of the best spots to park for both days, although the rain on Day Two did challenge the love fans had for their artists and their tolerance for pitiful weather and hardly any place to sit. If one of you’re must see artists was Grimes, there was no saving the disappointment that was the rain that cancelled her set and tears to follow. To rule out outside all together though would be a shame as Day One saw TLC, James Blake, and Bon Iver with sets to stun a sea of people. Day Two had Gucci Mane, She Wants Revenge, a delayed but dirty set by RL Grime, as well as incredible closing set by Justice. It also helped that all the food from pizza to tacos to funnel fries surrounded the outlying skirts of the layout.
Overall, the festival did the best it could with the circumstances it was dealt. From a change of venue location early on to unpredictable weather, Beach Goth provided the best outcome for all in attendance. Would I go again? Absolutely. Life and music are all about the experience and this was one I thoroughly enjoyed.
Rawtek is back again with their new club heavy Baile Funk-influenced track “RIXA!” This record goes in and doesn’t let up. If you are looking to raise the bar in the club, DJs you should play this. The Los Angeles duo are no strangers when it comes to heavy Latin drums, aggressive vocal chops and tropical jungle vibes. With support from Diplo, DJ Snake, GTA, Wiwek & more, the boys look to make a major dent in the scene this fall. Grab your copy off of Mad Decent’s Good Enuff imprint. #LIONSOUND

“101 (The Good Stuff)”, new video release by Northwest hip hop duo KnowMads as they gear up for the release of the new album “Knew School” dropping next week.
“Good Enough”, the latest single by uRLee featuring producer and singer Tone Jonez off the upcoming album “Feed The People”, set to drop on June 8th.
Los Angeles’ bass movement has seen a large spike recently and labels and shows fully dedicated to the heavy loving low end have been popping up all over town. When I got sent this record from Cooda’s management I knew it was going to fire but I had no idea it was going to be this wild. “Raptor” immediately works out all the kinks as it gets into the first verse. The verse offers some beautiful synth designs with a signature raptor-ish feel. Personally, it’s my favorite part of the song. We were able to chat with Cooda about his production approach,
“I like to enter the studio with a blank slate and nothing in mind. I just go. I love to explore the far reaches of sound design and choose unconventional sounds that I like and that call to me. As a creator I focus on creating unique rhythms and grooves that feel playful and fun but pack a gnarly triply vibe that catches you off guard”
