I’ve Got My Mind Set On You-Karro Westberg (Phil Mac Remix)

Hot off the press and ready to be listened to by ears of electronic music lovers, I give you Phil Mac’s newest remix of Karro Westberg’s track, “I’ve Got My Mind Set On You.” Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Phil now lives in London producing the sexy sounds of swing and bass for the world to hear. Along with producing, he also is a pianist, DJ, and creator of Reality Decks, a VR DJing App.

Phil Mac makes it impossible to sit still with his prefect blend of Swing and Drum n Bass in this new track. It is not only groovy but finger snapping, shoulder shaking, and elbow dancing worthy. Combined with the captivating and soothing voice of Karro Westberg this new tune will be on my repeat list for quite some time. Check it out for yourself, and consider yourself warned that this content my be addictive!

Peace and Love

Homegrown Artists Edmonton Sessions: Vol. II Kill3rhertz

HKFL skyline vol2

Have you ever met people in your life you just connected with immediately and knew they were a creative genius? I met Kill3rhertz & his partner at the back of the crows at a locally thrown (Mahsi Fellowship) halloween party in Edmonton. After realizing that he was a DJ and our crew had a music blog, the natural progression was to listen to all his mixes over and over again throughout the last 3 months. Kill3rhertz is an Edmonton based DJ who has played at Motion Notion, Mahsi events, local parties and now here for a HKFL exclusive. Kill3rhertz is not restricted by any genre, generating mixes to fit the flow of the audience; from tropical house, to summer chillwave, to electro house, DnB, and heavy bass. This mix is a bass house heavy set with some sexy DnB sprinkled in.

The amount of local talent and bomb music that comes out of Edmonton is amazing. Let HKFL show you just how epic the sounds are with our Monthly Homegrown Sessions.

As always give Kill3rhertz a follow on Soundcloud & Facebook to stay connected.

One Love, Whit & The HKFL Crew

Dehydrated Funk – High Contrast

“I USED TO THINK YOU COULD BE MORE PRESCRIPTIVE MAKING AN ALBUM, THEN I REALISED YOU CAN’T CONTROL IT IN ADVANCE, YOU’RE BETTER OFF JUST FOLLOWING YOUR HEART AND NOT OVERTHINKING IT. MUSIC IS AN ESCAPE FROM THE LINEARITY OF NARRATIVE AND LANGUAGE AND FROM A WHOLE LOT ELSE.” – Lincoln Barrett

These words resonate deep with me; music is an exquisite escape from reality and a universal language that permeates the very fabric of our souls whether we are aware of it or not. High Contrast’s song Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was the first Drum’n’Bass song I ever heard, and it single handedly turned me on to DnB. Hell, it changed the way I danced at shows, and it changed the way I listened to the drums in all music from that point forward. Years later, I am writing a blog post about this incredible DJ and producer known formally as Lincoln Barrett. I didn’t really know anything about the guy until I read the BIO on his website, but he’s a very interesting character. His musical influences are vast and when he started out he was actually more interested in film than music. Thankfully for us he chose the latter as his main vocation, and the rest is history. If you have a minute, please go read his story and jam some of his tunes, this guy really is a legend.

If you don’t have a minute, at least let me perk your ears to some other classic beat-makers that I only just discovered through him:

Theo Parrish

Depth Charge

Grooverider, and this track for something a little darker

DJ Zinc

High Contrast has remained relevant and far ahead of the curve through his dynamic  stylizations of sonic sound waves. With 6 albums in tow and some seriously dope music coming out of 2017, I don’t think we will see him stop any time soon. This track in particular comes off his Questions EP from March of last year and it is a beautiful piece of work. Clear some space in your living room and have a flail session!

Dark Crystal – Minnesota

DarkCrystal-3000x3000Alright team huddle in. This is about to get intense. Minnesota is comin in big with this new track Dark Crystal. Dont be fooled by the groovy  opening. You will get lost in the movement, and then WHAMMY! Some heavy glitch gives you some sweet shin music and you’re doing backflips until you crash into your wall. A perfect imprint of your flailing body will always remind of that time Minnesota smashed the fuck out of you! Think it wont happen? Go ahead hit play, but dont get mad at me when your Mom’s favourite China is shattered on the ground.

Just when you think you are going in for another round what does Minnesota do? Does a 180 spin into some delicious drum n bass to ramp the energy level to an 11! This one will be out in full force in festival season next year, get ready to rage to this one!

Note: Events reported above are only mere speculations…..or are they???
