Promnite’s gonna love you down. As a founding member of LA’s Athletixx crew (alongside Hoodboi, Falcons and Kittens), he’s been mixing futuristic hip-hop, R&B and next level electronic sounds like only a true sensei of dancefloor seduction can. That same vibe fuels Promnite’s remixes and original productions, which bounce from basement house to slow-n-low collabs with beat kings Mr. Carmack, Alizzz and more. His Fool’s Gold debut “Work It Out” with Penthouse Penthouse might be the producer’s grooviest move yet: a slinky, vocoder’d soundtrack to “U UP?” texts and all your other after-midnight activities. Listen to “Work It Out” now and stay tuned for more from Promnite!
Gladiator can’t stop moving. High-powered sets around the globe have earned lifelong LA friends Daniel Goodman and Ian Johnson an international #SQUAD of loyal fans, while dance superstars (Skrillex, A-Trak, Major Lazer) and urban upstarts (Kehlani, Kid Ink, Dej Loaf) keep calling for the duo’s magic touch on remixes and collaborations. It’s been a whirlwind trip so far, but Gladiator’s new Transit EP (out 1/22) is a true milemarker: deeper songwriting, crazier sonics, and an even stronger distillation of that Gladiator spark. They channeled all the adventures of a non-stop life into five very cool, very chunky original tracks, with fellow journeymen Vindata, Mark Johns, Four Color Zack and more coming along for the ride. Won’t you join them?
