Good Morning Mix: Relive Valentino Khan’s set from HARD Summer 2018Valentino Khan 3 White Rabbit

Summer and festival season might be approaching their close, but aren’t going down to easily. Artists across the dance music board are operating at full throttle, maintaining extensive tour schedules until the final moments and keeping the heat alive musically with an array of fresh singles and numerous gig recordings. Valentino Khan is one of those juggernauts keeping energy levels up, and he’s just granted fans with an expeditious release of his HARD Summer set.

Though the festival itself passed by not too long before Khan shared his hour of throbbing, house-based beats, it easily stands as a highlight of the season for the performer. The producer puts himself and his tastes on full display, whipping his young audience into a frenzy with his raucous brand of electronic. He also threw in a few choice originals from the season, including “Deep Down Low.” Originally broadcasted live on Insomniac Radio, his time behind the Green decks is officially immortalized for all to enjoy.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department has reported that one person died and 23 were hospitalized at the 2018 edition of HARD Summer, which took place at Fontana, California’s Auto Club Speedway the first weekend of August.

Nineteen-year-old Andrew Cole Click from Tracy, California was taken to an area hospital on Sunday, Aug. 5, where he was later pronounced dead. An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death.

In a statement to Pitchfork, HARD Summer officials expressed their sympathy to Click’s family and friends.

“It is with great sadness that we have learned a festival attendee has passed away following HARD Summer this weekend. We extend our deepest sympathies to the individual’s loved ones, and we ask that you keep them in your thoughts. The health and safety of those who attend our events is HARD’s utmost priority, and we take every measure to create a safe and enjoyable environment. We have no further information at this time, but we encourage the community to come together, support each other, and always look out for one another in light of this tragedy.”

Twenty-three other attendees were hospitalized for various medical issues. According to Los Angeles’ ABC7, two women remain in the hospital and are continuing to receive treatment. Eleven festival-goers were arrested over the course of the weekend, primarily for drug-related incidents.

The 2018 edition of HARD Summer brought more than 150,000 people to the speedway over the course of its two days.

HARD Summer 2018 has come and gone — the festival’s first year without founder of the HARD brand Gary Richards (a.k.a. Destructo) at the helm — and all seemed to go as planned. Recruiting some of today’s top talent in house, future bass, dubstep, and hip-hop, the weekend featured some powerhouse back-to-back sets from Dillon Francis & Diplo, Zeds Dead & Jauz, and A-Trak & Baauer. Travis Scott celebrated the release of his new album, Astroworld, and Mija dropped another set that completely embodies her “Fk A Genre” mantra.

With more sets from Marshmello, Ghastly, Louis the Child, and others, this weekend marked the beginning of a new chapter for the HARD organization. Check out some of the top sets of the weekend below.

After announcing that he would debut his collaboration with 1788-L at HARD Summer on Twitter, Ekali piloted the promised ID during his set at the festival’s Green Stage on August 5.

The trap oriented number sources its intensity from wallops of potent bass and gritty, grabbing rhythmic halts. Although Ekali did not offer an official release date for the single just yet, the joint project from the Vancouver favorite and 1788-L packs a powerful sonic punch that proves that the collaboration’s formal arrival will be well worth the wait.

First Listen: Ducky drops off a new heater ‘Down Low’ for HARD Summer’s 2018 compilationDuckyPressShoot 019 FullSize

Just a week away from HARD Events’ bread and butter flagship event, HARD Summer Music Festival, the festival giant has announced the launch of its very own label, HARD Recs. In conjunction with the newly minted imprint’s launch, HARD has put together a meticulously curated HS18 compilation, consisting of the Aug. 4-5 festival’s familial faces, as well as some swiftly-rising newbies.

HARD has allowed Dancing Astronaut a first listen at Ducky‘s “Down Low,” off the compilation. DJing in various nightclubs since she was 13, Ducky is known for her eclectic style, oscillating between harrowing hardcore and lulling downtempo. “Down Low” is a menacing dubstep piece that pairs crashing synth layers with pitched up vocalizing for a rave-primed set list weapon that showcases Ducky’s head-turning style ahead of her upcoming HARD Summer outing.
