As a person that easily binge watches TV shows, it is easy to get to a point where you have almost seen it all. Or at least, all that appeals your interest. Yet, the minute that you find out the release date of your favorite show’s next season, you suddenly have more purpose in life. Ok, maybe my life is a “little bit” more Netflix-driven than yours, but my point is that finding out when The Humma was releasing their full length debut, 100, gave me just enough rivaling purpose. Introduced through their lusciously euphoric rock single ‘Bonfire’ back in October 2015, capable of filling rooms with their anthemic rock sound, The UK based four-piece grabbed our hearts and ears from the very start. Ten months, millions of Spotify streams later and praised Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and Huw Stephens, The Hunna have captured just more than an audience. They are one of the few bands today that can define their own following as a ‘movement’ and 100 further proves their case.
This brings us to why we are incredibly honored to present the next Artist(s) of the month: The Hunna, as their kicking off their debut album this week. Join us this month as we get to know Ryan (Vocals/Guitar), Dan (Lead Guitar), Jermaine (Bass) and Jack (Drums) and their quest to conquer the world (musically).
Within the realm of free downloads, this week was huge. Tons of hot up and coming acts came out with fire this week, and even Tiesto dropped a free song he created with DallasK. Not only were there a ton, but for some reason these records were exceptional, even for the producers. Such producers who we tip our hats to in this edition of our Friday Party Playlist are G-Buck, Convex, Jameston Thieves, JSTJR, Dirty Monkey, Rezz and UZ. That’s not all, as there are a handful of other party poppin’ singles from other talented producers as well. Check out all twleve, and take them with you over the weekend. Rest up, party; do what you need to shed off the aches and pains of the week. Most importantly, #danceirresponsibly.

T’was that time of the year again! One of the most anticipated summer music festivals just took Southern California by storm. We’re talking about HARD Summer, which ran its course with a weekend filled with epic festivities. Besides the newly-added option for camping, this year’s festival offered a superb lineup that definitely shined the spotlight on many up and coming artists, especially those in the electronic dance music scene. We know that words won’t do it any justice, but we’ll take a crack at giving you our FIVE favorite acts from the weekend.
When we got the word that a “surprise guest” would come out during Slushii‘s debut set, we would’ve never guessed it’d be Skrillex, who actually surprised Slushii too. Julian Scanlan a.k.a Slushii played “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites”, and Skrilly jumped up on the DJ stand. “Make some noise for the future right here” were his words – pretty high praises from the dance music icon, as Julian’s dynamic set definitely got the whole place buzzin’. Check out this video below that captured the amazing moment.
Summer is slipping through our fingers whether we like it or not. So go outside and make the best of it. And be sure take the Indie Dojo with you. You’re gonna need a soundtrack to help those fantastic summer memories stick.
