Callie Reiff brings the party everywhere she goes, and her new Shadow Dancing EP is a perfect snapshot of this teenage NYC DJ/producer in motion: hybrid bass, uptempo breaks, and boundless energy. The title track bangs alongside “Jawbreaker,” an equally high-powered collab with KANDY, and three brand new “Shadow Dancing” remixes from Lil Texas, JSTJR and Havok Roth. Hit the lights and hit the floor!

Drunken Masters have lived up to their name with party-ready remixes and Waka Flocka-sampling bootlegs currently blasting in a festival tent near you. But now, in a most excellent plot twist, the Bavarian DJ duo use a song titled “Louder” to show off their softer side (There’s got to be a German word for that.) With psych rockers Portugal. The Man providing woozy melodies over a hypnotic, finger-snapping drop, Drunken Masters trade in their 4am ragers for a pleasant all-day buzz. Prost!

Nick Hook is NYC’s waviest resident: an in-demand collaborator, producer extraordinaire, and all around provider of vibes who’s lent his touch to projects from Run The Jewels, Young Thug, and countless others, all while building a creative community around his studio, thespacepit, in Greenpoint. Now the redheaded kingpin steps forward with his Relationships LP on Fool’s Gold, a 16 track album of collaborations that are unconventional, unexpected and all-the-way live (literally: each song was recorded in-person with Nick behind the boards, a refreshing move in the email verse era).
Featuring a festival-worthy lineup of new school rap upstarts (21 Savage, Novelist, ILoveMakonnen) and fellow beat radicals (Prefuse 73, Hudson Mohawke, the late DJ Rashad), Relationships isn’t just the world’s greatest party guestlist, but a chronicle of Nick’s year long, after-midnight vision quest—the sound of a producer breaking through the chrysalis, killing the ego, and raising the bar. Put your phone down and dive in.

Spelling has never been this live!

SLUGGERS flip Sunshine State vibes like a photonegative, crafting some of this year’s deepest, dankest dance records in the process. Their hit Fool’s Gold Clubhouse single “Courtesy / HYPR” earned them support from big dogs like A-Trak, Diplo and Skrillex and standout slots at Ultra, EDC and other global dance festivals. But Anthem is the anonymous crew’s heaviest mission statement to date, a five-track love letter to bass in all its forms. From the skull-rattling title track to the sinister, droning vibes of “Doses,” MIA nightlife has never sounded so wonderfully dark.
