Wonderful (Original Mix)
Perhaps the single largest lifeline pumping through this wonderful site of ours is the passion to discover artists & bands that might’ve been passed over by some larger tastemaking publications, or not had the type of marketing teams bringing so many acts to prominence in today’s musical climate. Our latest discovery falls within the realm of proper house in the form of Sacramento based 8150. Although the mysterious producer wields years of studio production credits, his first foray into solo territory waited until its level of quality was on par with the sterling sounds of bigger-label dance tunes. “Wonderful”, our house tune du jour does just that, pacing itself behind a blissful intro comprised of sultry pads and a delicately crafted piano progression, before giving into girthy bass licks and just a lovely set of vocal chops pulled from the one and only Aretha Franklin. We could dive even further into the minutiae of why this one hits our chochlear cavities so well, but we’ll just shut up now and let your ears be the judge. 8150’s latest single finds a home on fledgling imprint THNK TNK Records, marking their debut release, and if “Wonderful” is anything to go off of, we may have a new label in the running for favorite independent dance collective in the Western U.S. within the next few years. “Wonderful” is available as a free download over on Soundcloud, but since you’ve made it this far, don’t bounce on out of here without streaming above.
When you earn the title of Sultan of Summer, it’s safe to say that you’re somewhat of an expert on all things warm-weather. We definitely know where we’ll turn if we’re looking for a refreshing cocktail recipe, the best beach destination, or a collection of the best summer tunes. That’s right – it’s our Resident Artist, Viceroy.
Of course, our pool playlists are brimming with tracks he’s produced, but we wanted to dig a little deeper and find out what he’s personally jamming to when he’s manning the BBQ or walking the beach. Take a look below and start getting those weekend plans in order. You’ll want to be outside to enjoy this nice little collection.
Get Mine Ft. Shakka
If you need a jam to get through the week, then Midas Hutch‘s latest single is what you’re desiring. “Get Mine” featuring Shakka is full of vibes that you’re going to be enjoying all Summer long, as the song’s shelf life is no short matter.
Midas Hutch describes his sound as “music to speed down the highway to, late at night together with your main squeeze,” which is 100% correct. “Get Mine” has influences from several genres, making it a dynamic song that is both incredible and accessible to a wide variety of listeners. From beginning to end you feel like something extraordinary is shining upon you. Midas put together a fun production that lays the perfect landscape for Shakka to come in and bless with his vocal. Stream the single today, and if you haven’t familiarized yourself with Midas Hutch’s catalog, we suggest you rummage through his Soundcloud page. You won’t regret it.
After hearing MODEL 86’s song “MONO” which was released a couple months back, I knew I would have my eye on this London-based producer. He is fresh to the scene but he is no novice to the world of creating music. His inspiration and ability are up there and if he keeps to this route he might become a well known taste maker. “MONO” served as a stellar promotional single preceding a full EP. It communicated the general sound and feeling behind the idea he had for this project, and it had me eagerly waiting for more.
Now the entirely of the EP is upon us and the creativity MODEL 86 was able to bring to that single resonates throughout the whole album. It is titled, “When You Realise People Are Not One Dimensional Characters In A Movie Of Your Life.” This abstract unorthodox title fits the album’s unique style. Throughout the record, MODEL 86 dives deeper into his inspirations and experimental curiosities.
With hip-hop, electronic and pop influences, MODEL 86’s songs span a diverse sonic palate. The two leading tracks, “Holdin’” and “MONO” are much more straight forward compared to the second half of the album. But the tracks flow together well. “NEED 808” serves as a perfect midpoint. It resembles a disjointed popular electronic song where a catchy melody is taken by storm, overrun by quick high hats, unpredictable hip-hop rhythms and glitchy vocal chops.
Any fans of forward-thinking hip-hop and electronic music will find something special here. So explore the new MODEL 86 EP, “When You Realise People Are Not One Dimensional Characters In A Movie Of Your Life.”

Future Soup ft. Patrick Baker (option4 Remix)
Denver’s deacon of dance music is back at it again. This time around, he’s twisted up a delightfully unique version of Autograf’s smash hit, “Future Soup,” which features singer/songwriter Patrick Baker.
It didn’t take long for option4’s signature grooves to grab a hold of us, especially because they’re accentuated by percussion-style vocal samples with this latest remix. While tactics like these can sometimes be overwhelming, often taking over an interpretation, their subtleties in option4’s application create a lush and invigorating accompaniment to the layers of deep bass hits, light rattles, and soaring synths.
Switching back and forth from a 6/8 signature to 4/4 should also offer up plenty of intrigue for dancers looking to shake up their experience on the dance floor. It sure as hell did for us, and we’re only grooving in front of our computers.
