Bixel Boy’s new track “Empire” seems to be appropriately titled since that’s what these two have created this past year. With a packed tour schedule and a slew of solid releases, the boys have skyrocketed to popularity and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Their second release on Sweat It Out! and their first original track of 2014, “Empire” is a triumphant bass driven electro house tune that blurs the lines between big-room and underground. The end result is a complex yet accessible track perfect for the mainstage and the 4am dance floor all at once. Keep an eye out for the full release of the Empire EP on June 27th.

Anna Lunoe does it again with a brand new hard-hitting techno bomb appropriately named “Bass Drum Dealer (B.D.D). Like most of Anna’s tracks this tune is a well crafted dance floor killer complete with her silky smooth vocal work and infectious lyrics. Released on the Nest the song is available for free download, it doesn’t get much better than that.

This week we’re keepin it in the family.

The latest weekly mix is brought to you by Craig Williams & Charles I who just released a powerful EP off of our very own Discobelle Records back in April titled “This Is It“. We’re happy to welcome these boys back, here’s what they had to say.

“In making our This Is It EP, we found that there were a lot of tracks released in the last year or so that stood out to both of us, tracks that, in addition to being great for the dancefloor and well-mixed, have uniquely engaging, dark qualities. So when making this mix, we sought out to demonstrate what influenced us while making our EP by collecting some of those songs and pairing them with ours. There are a lot of exciting things happening within this style of music right now and it’s not always apparent to the casual onlooker. The artists and labels featured in this mix are a few among many that we consider to be purveyors of excellent taste and curators of aesthetics that are both powerful and provocative.”
