Craze and Codes get housey on their latest Slow Roast collab “Deeper,” out now on Beatport, iTunes and everywhere else fine digital music is sold. Their smoothed out collab is perfect for any dancefloor occasion – but lest you think these party rockers are getting mellow on us, they each turn in remixes (Craze’s “Moombah Flex” and Codes’ “Big Room” mix) that drive the song even “deeper” into banger territory. VIBEZ! Peep the 007 inspired video (courtesy Scion A/V) after the jump. Read More
This Sunday (10/7) the crew hits Los Angeles for our first ever West Coast edition of DAY OFF, featuring A-Trak, Danny Brown, Chromeo (DJ Set), Cool Kids, Casey Veggies, Congorock, Oliver, Donnis, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs and special guests.
The response to our initial Day Off LA announcement was so crazy that we hit capacity on RSVPs only a few hours later! We held some space though, and will be releasing 500 additional RSVPs on the website today at noon PST. (If you’ve already RSVPed, hold tight – venue info will be emailed to you before the event).
Bruiser Brigade get live in a boxing gym, talking about how they came together in Detroit before Danny Brown and company dismantle a Mike Will beat in the ring.

One of the highlights of Clubhouse Vol 2 (out now on iTunes, Beatport and all other digital retails) was Starkey’s megaton “Solar Flare.” The track gets an extra dose of grime thanks to Trim, whose vocal version is up now on Starkey’s Soundcloud. Peep it!
Fool’s Gold’s resident dance pop duo Telephoned slow down the BPMs for “Last Time,” a swirling end-of-summer jam built on jumprope melodies and Aqua Net synth lines that you’ll be humming well into next year. Get it now on iTunes!
Sammy and Maggie’s new wave funk gets cranked to the max by an expert roster of remixers: Krystal Klear drags the song into proper New Jack Swing territory (complete with Seinfeld-ian slap bass!), Amtrac turns up the tempo with his club-ready disco house mix, while Kutkorners provides a closing credits-worthy boogie slow burner. Major Lazer’s buddy JR Blender even shows up to the party with a sweet lover’s rock version of Telephoned’s “The Vow,” serving as a perfect postscript to this must-listen remix collection. We’re giving up the Krystal Klear remix as a free download to get you in the mood…
