Sweater Beats checked off the bucket list in performing a recent DJ set at Emo Nite in Los Angeles. The Big Beat Records signee indicated in a Facebook post that he started his music career by playing for pop-punk/emo bands in high school. In the same post from February, fans get a Sum 41 beat flip, kicking off a wave of nostalgia for the LA-based producer.

Now, he’s perfectly blended humble beginnings with his current status as an electronic artist with this 33-minute mix from Emo Nite in LA. In addition to some familiar remixes, the mix is stacked with flipped classics and mashups by the producer himself, all representing the pop-punk/emo era of the ’90s and early ’00s. Listeners will hear edits of “Swing Swing Swing” by The All-American Rejects, Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue,” a Smashing Pumpkins joint “smashed” with a k?d drop, Fall Out Boy‘s “Sugar We’re Going Down,” and more.

In the mix’s description, the artist said he “got to live out a dream” by playing at Emo Nite. “I spent a lot of time finding/making acapellas for a lot of my fav emo & pop-punk songs so I could make custom remixes and edits,” he notes in the description. “The set was probably the most honest set I’ve ever played, a real mixture of my luv for emo & electronic music.”

Good Morning Mix: Major Lazer make Brazil-centric Carnaval mixMajor Lazer Carnaval Mi

Carnaval has just begun in Brazil, and to honor the cheerful chaos that ensues, Major Lazer has put together a brand new mix. The tracklist reveals something particularly special: most of its tracks happen to be by local artists from the area. Diplo and his colleague’s continual willingness to showcase underrated talent from outside the states is commendable.

Clocking in at just over an hour, the music selection is diverse and high-charged. Some bachata-inspired beats even make their way into the fold via MC Davi’s “O Verão Esta Chegando.” Bass runs abound, with wild trap drops and rhythmic heaters stimulating the senses. Major Lazer make it easy for listeners to place themselves mentally amid the madness that takes over the country during this time of year.

Good Morning Mix: Rock with A-Trak’s Holy Ship! Rap Party MixA Trak Holy Ship Hip Hop

Party master and scratch luminary, A-Trak shows his versatility and relevance in this lava “Holy Ship Rap Party 2019” mix of turn-of-the-millennium rap mixed with newer hip-hop and electronic goodies. For example, the Fools Gold head honcho hits a groove towards the beginning with Clipse’s “Grinding,” Jay-Z‘s “La La La,” a bootleg of Missy Elliot‘s “Work It,” an edit of J-Kwon’s “Tipsy,” Mary J. Blige‘s “Real One,” and Panjabi MC featuring Jay-Z’s “Beware.” That groove is continued and further expanded on; however, those tracks set the tone for a modern-day dose of nostalgia.

While listening through some of hip-hop’s finest products, A-Trak adds more modern elements with Kodak BlackChildish GambinoLil Uzi Vert, and more while mixing electronic elements from Daft Punk, GesaffelsteinJusticeYehme2, TroyBoi and others. This is a certified must-listen for fans of hip-hop and music in general, directly from one of the best improv party DJs to grace the stage.

Rinzen has had a monumental 2018. From deepening his ties to the mau5trap community with his “Monophobia” remix and Exoplanet EP, to touring some of the UK’s finest underground venues, the LA-based artist has shown serious development. To cap off his year, Rinzen has now shared his set from Printworks London back in November.

Cycling through his own tracks (released and unreleased) and killer cuts from Maceo Plex, Stephan Bodzin, Tale of Us, and more, Rinzen offers up some prime techno that packs both hard-hitting beats and ambient textures. Reflecting on the night, Rinzen notes that Printworks “was hands down the coolest venue [he’s] ever played, and one of [his] favorite set’s [he’s] performed as well.” With one of London’s craziest venues under his belt, we can only expect bigger and better things coming from Rinzen in 2019.

There’s no better time than Friday to get lost in some techno. One devoted fan of Eric Prydz‘s alter ego Cirez D and Drumcode boss Adam Beyer has promptly delivered just that. The two had a one-of-a-kind performance at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium on November 23, going back-to-back for three hours of blinding production and dark tunes. The venue even extended its hours until 4 a.m. for the appearance.

The YouTube user’s steady hand captures perfectly the energy in the room, and, of course, the top-notch light work and mixing from the pair as they slowly build the energy in the room to its maximum energy.

Cirez D and Adam Beyer will be going b2b again this weekend in New York City.

Good Morning Mix: Go underground with Claptone’s house-inflected Halloween mix

Good Morning Mix: Go underground with Claptone’s house-inflected Halloween mixCLAPTONE 2018 0928 234951 4311 ALIVECOVERAGE JCM

Claptone introduced a different connotation of “haunted house” in his Halloween mix, originally released in 2017. With the month of October at its peak, Claptone’s Halloween effort warrants revisitation, and it is accordingly with an enticing wave of his white gloves that Claptone invites listeners to delve into two hours of sumptuous, soulful house selects. A sleek underground spin on the traditionally trap and bass-laden Halloween sound, the mix is a collection of mid to downtempo tracks that fluidly unfurls with each second. Claptone subtly imbibes the spirit of the Halloween season in the production through deliberate song choice — Ordonez’s “The Spell,” for instance, occupies a mellifluous several minutes of the mix. A dark take on Talking Heads’ “Pyscho Killer” only further underscores Claptone’s attention to the inclusion of the spookiest sonic subject matter.

Eerie synths that stab on occasion, and thrillers of spoken vocal parts augment the mix’s hair-raising quality. In the titular fashion of Claptone’s sophomore album, the modern house revivalist’s sensation building Halloween mix should bring out the “fantast” in each listener this Halloween season.
