Lane 8 – Every Night


Daniel Goldstein, the house producer from San Francisco known as Lane 8 has been making waves in the world of electronica this year. The shimmery downtempo track, “Every Night” samples vocals from Diana Ross & The Supremes “Reflections” and is a perfect number for your end-of-summer playlist.

HLD weekend, everyone.


Upcoming tour dates below. Serendipitous that the day I go to post this track, he happens to be playing in DC the next day, non?

August 30 – U Street Music Hall, Washington DC
October 4 – Zanzabar, Louisville
October 4-6 – Music in the Middle, Tennessee

RÜFÜS – Desert Night


Get your Saturday night started off right with RÜFÜS, a new three-piece from Australia. The second single off their upcoming debut album, ATLAS, “Desert Night” is a deliciously textured and irresistible house number. Reaching #1 on the HypeM charts a week ago, house lovers everywhere can look forward to the album dropping August 9th.

Disclosure – Help Me Lose My Mind (ft. London Grammar)


Disclosure released their debut album Settle a week ago (6/3), which includes the following collab with trio London Grammar. “Help Me Lose My Mind” is the perfect downtempo track for a rainy Monday night such as the one we’re currently experiencing in DC (power out at 930?!).

Catch the UK duo this summer at Lollapalooza in Chicago 8/2, and at New York’s Central Park Summerstage 8/6.


If you can’t get enough of this future garage group and are anticipating the weekend already, check out Baauer‘s dance remix of Disclosure’s “You & Me” (w/vocals by Eliza Doolittle).

Alesso – ‘If I Lose Myself’ Mix


Alesso (born Alessandro Lindblad) is a DJ/EDM producer from Sweden. Achieving worldwide recognition with progressive house hit “Years” in 2011, the Swede recently dropped this anthemic remix of OneRepublic’s “If I Lose Myself.” With its catchy vocals, captivating synths and dramatic build-up, I find myself unable to stop from bursting into song whenever I hear it.

He also paired up with Dirty South last year to release explosive pop ballad “City of Dreams,” included in my best of list for 2012 —  it’s that good.

Alesso will be playing at DC’s Echostage April 19th. Although I have yet to experience this venue, given the amount of energy the Swedish producer packs into his music I’m sure it is to be an exhilarating show.
