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!

The Cocktail Hour ft. Sleep Tom – The Currency Mix

This week im proud to once again be repping Vancouver’s brightest up and comer, Sleepy Tom. Maybe its the rain that keeps these lethargic bros like Tom and Lazy Rich on the couch but its all cool by me if that’s where they produce all this sweet music.

Toms work habits are far from lazy. His EP, The Currency just dropped on my favorite record label – Fools Gold – and hes set to headline this weeks #FVDED event at Celebrities.


Check out this promo mix of the new EP along side some of the freshest beats from Mad Decent and Fools Gold.

ƱZ – ŤɌ∆Ҏ ᶊῌῗ† √12/13 *BNR*

I’m really starting to like trap. Unlike dubstep, trap has proved is can be powerful and intense but also minimalist. It shows a maturity and restraint that a lot of dubstep was lacking without giving up being gangster and hard as a motherfucker. This is UZ:

Birdy Nam Nam – Defiant Order (︻╦╤─ UZ ─╤╦︻ Remix)

Who is UZ?

UZ ball trap music
In the midst of other early trap ambassadors like Bauuer and RL Grime, as well as established artists like Diplo and 12th Planet, UZ stands out (yet remains hidden) in this exploding new genre.

Is the mask what makes him so intriguing? Everyone loves a mystery. Yet while everyone is taking their best guess at his identity, UZ is cranking out the freshest sound ive heard since Moombahton broke.

Bonus trap shit*

The Cocktail Hour ft. Expendable Youth


Lets get a little gangster. I’m too white to give a credible account of the EDM Trap movement but its impact is as undeniable as how sad I look trying to dance to it. Thanksfully the dudes at Salacious Sound do a nice introduction at the beginning of this mix for those completely out of the loop.

This mix is done by Vancouver’s own purveyor of Mad Decent beats, Expendable Youth. It should surprise nobody that Diplo and the artists on his label find themselves once again on the rising wave of a new genre.
