The Cocktail Hour ft. What So Not

This mix is here to punch up your afternoon.

This is what you get when you take Flumes sense of melody and pop it into a DJ duo bent on ripping up dance floors.

This is how you make Caribou and RL Grime work in the same set.

This is What So Not.

This week on the BBQ is ODESZA. This Seattle duo is know for their balance between dreamy sun trickled melodies, crunchy drums and sweeping basslines. Their NO.SLEEP series of mixes is always a smash and the most recent issue is no substitute.

Ryan Hemsworth – 「Every Square Inch」(with Qrion)

Ryan Hemsworth is a dude. A dude from Canada. A dude who might be a Marvel Superhero. And a dude who is playing Squamish Music Festival!

His sound walks the line somewhere between chillwave and trap rap. Personally I didn’t know that line was there but I’m really glad he found it.

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!
