If there’s any better time to really see what you’re made of, it’s gotta be when your technology fails you and you’re left to rely on your skills alone. That’s what happened to Cosmo Baker this week when he stopped by Philly radio station, WKDU. His computer was on the fritz so he brought two bags of 45s with him to the radio station and went to work on decks. Because that’s how you fucking do it like a professional.
My homie .rar Kelly of Space is the Place Records in Baltimore describes Kate Boss as “sexy, tough, and downright terrifying” and that’s a woman I can get behind. There’s a certain darkness to her that is absolutely seductive – something Baltimore has been craving for so long. I love how she uses sultry R&B to drive the mix through glitchy, industrial sounds and hyperactive club music.
Indie dance music is the groove when it comes to SAINT WKND‘s guest mix for THUMP. The German producer clearly put the focus on souful vocals, sensual beats, and all around good times when he curated this mix. With tracks from dinnerdate, Flume, and SAINT WKND’s own productions and remixes, this one will be perfect to rock with on your way out for the night.
Tee Vish exposes his favorite underground sounds in his latest mix for The Astral Plane. Showcasing sounds from MA NGUZU, Funkystepz, and Geotheory, this mix is something you’ll wanna listen to when you’re in dire need for fresh, new music.
When the lead singer of a down-tempo indie rock band from Baltimore starts playing DJ sets, you listen. Closely. Such is the case with Jana Hunter of Lower Dens and her latest DJ mix for The Fader. Thumbs down to The Fader for not being able to embed this mix (sharing is caring, yall!), but trust me, it’s worth the click through to their page. Thirty minutes of footwork, club music, and chill hip-hop – you’ll just have to hear it to believe it.
