The Cocktail Hour ft. Big Gigantic

Big Gigantic is playing the Commodore tomorrow so I’d thought we’d have a little taste on the blog today! Big Gigantic is a hip hop/jazz inspired live electronic act from Boulder CO. Be on the look out for crunchy basslines, big ass live drums and a sexy live saxaphone! Its a bro-stepping, headbanging good time.

The Cocktail Hour ft. Diplo 2013 Mix

Happy Friday BBQrew!

This weeks mix is a special time capsule edition of the hottest tracks to bang their way out of 2013. Curated by good ol’ uncle Diplo, its weird to see him play the tracks that are literally, ‘so last year’ since he’s usually playing what will be cool in 6 months. Diplo is always on the forefront of the wave of fresh and it is interesting to look back at all the songs and styles he championed this year and see that well, yea, he kinda nailed it.

Major Lazer did maybe my favorite festival set of the year. In the Top 3 sets overall for sure. I love everything he does. Can’t wait for 2014!

The Cocktail Hour ft. Flume

I introduced Flume a few months ago but he has reignited my love with his most recent mix tape. It makes me want to pull my hat brim down low and viciously head bob like AraabMUZIK.

Its steady and heavy and it will definitely set the pace for your Friday evening.

Happy Friday! This weeks cocktail hour comes from Canada’s very own A Tribe Called Red who have been featured on the Diplo and Friends podcast. I saw these guys throw it down in the wood shed at Squamish Fest and it was like nothing I’ve ever seen.
