Being a Top 25 Club from DJ Mag comes at no surprise as Beta Nightclub has been featuring an amazing array of talent this summer, and this weekend is once again no exception.
Being regulars at Beta, we figured we should share their line up with you, in hopes that you’ll come down and rage with us. Also, just like last time, we have arranged for something special.

The M Machine- June 20th
Arty feat. Chris James Together We Are (The M Machine Remix)
J Majik and Wickaman are nearing their release date for their first album in five years. “Out of Sight” is due out July 1st on the duo’s label, InfraRed Music, and is chalk full of drum and bass tracks that span from futuristic computer funk to old-skool jungle core. We’ve had a chance to preview the album, and it’s one of the most impressive drum and bass releases we’ve heard in some time.
To get you pumped up on the release, we have an exclusive remix of one of the tracks from the album, “Right Now,” which features vocals from Kate Loveridge (who appears on multiple tracks on “Out of Sight”). The original is a heart pounding, energy-charged track with soulful lyrics that you can’t help but move your body to. With as amazing of a track as it is, we were equally impressed with Draft’s take on it. This London based producer has deconstructed the original and crafted a funky bass line-driven dance floor gem. Kate’s vocals are definitely the star of this remix, but are wonderfully accented with a twangy bass and elements of the original synths. While it’s miles away from the original, it’s done tastefully and in a way that showcases Draft’s talents as producer and remixer.
“Right Now” and this remix will be dropping this Monday, the 24th. Make sure to keep an eye out.
Our favorite Birmingham based four piece just dropped this video to their track “King City” which is off their upcoming album ‘Where The Heaven Are We’ released 5th of August 2013 through RCA Victor/Chess Club Records. The dreamy indie pop track was shot in LA during their first tour of the states. The classic Americana feel comprised of sprawling desert landscapes, good old fashioned American muscle and a greasy spoon diner is an ideal vision for this track. Make sure to set your calendars to pick up this release. It’s sure not to disappoint.
Damn. The summer jams just keep coming and coming. They’re coming in such high volume that we’re running out of references to make. We’ve already covered wearing flip flops, hitting pool parties, festivals, and having your car windows being rolled down. The only thing that’s left is mowing the law, so we’ll go with that. So, when you’re out there mowing your lawn in the warm summer sun, it of course helps to have your favorite sunny music tunes to accompany your icy cold beer and ten year old tennis shoes. Every guy that read this post just nodded his head in agreement. Anyways, today we’re offering up something that will be perfect next time you throw your buds in and fire up the ol’ mower.
Colorado electronic hip hop duo Bass Physics released this groovy soulful tune just nine hours ago.

It’s pretty safe to say we’ve all had moments of going ham on a night out. It could have been your last birthday celebration, or that bachelor party you all made a pact to never talk about again. Regardless of the occasion, you always need some good tunes to make sure you keep driving hard in the paint. We all know sorry tunes can really kill a party vibe. Well, DJ/Producer duo Kicks n Licks have put a tasty twist on Mighty High Coup’s track “Going Ham”. This monstrous tune provides the perfect soundtrack for the night you’re about to not remember. So turn this ish up, line up some shots, and go ham tonight.
Details about Drake‘s upcoming release Nothing Was The Same have been sparse, but he’s still left us with plenty to talk about with his music. “On My Way” is the fourth single we’ve heard from Drizzy in recent months, and it features a return to his classic R&B form. Drake can be quite the polarizing figure in the hip-hop/R&B scene, and to those individuals clamoring for him to stick to the rap game, Drake had this to say in a recent interview with GQ:
This is my fucking moment to say if I wanted to rap all the time, really rap, I would, but I also love to make music. I’ll do this for you right now. But it’s for me, too. It’s my story…I’m trying to get back to that kid in the basement. To say what he has to say. And I’m trying to make it last.
Sounds like Nothing Was The Same is going to turn out to be an interesting project to say the least. We’re definitely interested to see how it stacks up against Yeezus and Magna Carta Holy Grail at the end of the year. Listen to “On My Way” above, featuring R&B running mate James Fauntleroy, and if you have some time on your hands, make sure to check out at the rest of that GQ interview, as it definitely makes for a good read.
As you may remember, back in MarchDanny Brown was extremely eager to premiere the eccentric “Kush Coma.” Although the song was in an unfinished form, Brown decided to leak it anyway just to give his fans a treat for their continued support. Today we can finally revel in the glory of the final version, which now features an additional verse from A$AP Rocky and credits Zelooperz on the chorus. Try and see if you can keep up with Danny on this latest effort, and be on the lookout for Old, due out later this year.
