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.

It’s plain as day that singer/songwriter Mateo (Iman Jordan) was the product of a musical family. With a voice so smooth you just know dude’s got good genes. His grandfather was a session guitarist, and his grandmother a touring singer. By the time he was 5, Mateo was showing of his voice and playing classical piano like a boss.
Joined by the sultry pipes of Stacy Barthe, the Cincinnati crooner dropped this gem free of charge. It’s a soulful throwback to the R&B from the 90′s. With such fluid vocal harmonies and the strikingly euphoric melody I dare you to try and keep this jam off repeat. Backed by the production of Kerry “Kruical” Brothers and his new label, Krucial Noise, Mateo definitely needs to be on your radar. Keep an eye out for his mixtape, Suite 823, dropping next week.
Cleveland rep Chip Tha Ripper has long been one of the most slept on artists in hip-hop. His smooth delivery and genuinely positive vibrations always make for a great listening experience. On this cut, Taylor Gang producer Cardo sets the backdrop constructing his signature Kush&OJ-style chillwave sound. The Ohio spitter continues to evolve as he successfully experiments with different flows. This track was featured on Mick Boogie & Hypetrak’s Represent the Stripes mixtape, which includes appearances from a number of other exciting hip-hop up ‘n comers and can be downloaded free here. Keep It So Real comes off as relaxed and low-key, embodying Chip’s own persona.

Adventure Club and Krewella’s Rise & Fall has been one of my favorite tracks to listen to lately, and I’ve been anticipating this release ever since I first got word that D!RTY AUD!O would be remixing it. Of course, once I heard it, I could not stop listening. It’s safe to say that the Los Angeles producer took Rise & Fall and transformed it into his own moombahton signature style that he is known for and even infuses a little bit of trap to the mix.

Louisville’s The Pass are back with ‘Melt’, their sophomore record, and judging by lead single ‘Without Warning’, it’s going to push them into the limelight. ‘Without Warning’ sees the band take funk and give it a sizzling update with psych-influenced synths, while sticking to emotionally fraught and dark lyrics. The contrast between the two not only makes ‘Without Warning’ one of the most interesting tracks out there at the moment, it also shows The Pass as serious contenders for the mainstream.
Canadian noise duo Crystal Castles are back with a new single, ‘Plague’, taken from their forthcoming third album. It’s standard CC fare, with Alice Glass’ intense vocals layered over brutal electronic instrumentals reminiscent of Atari Teenage Riot. Their as yet untitled record has themes of oppression, and the sheer force of ‘Plague’ is terrifying, but in a very addictive way that makes you press repeat countless times. Crystal Castles may not have broken new ground, but we’ve missed their chaotic electro-core, so ‘Plague’ is a very welcome return. CC’s album is set to drop in September, so stay tuned for more information.
Sir Michael Rocks, a recent addition to Jet Life Recordings, teams up with fellow Chi-town native Rockie Fresh for the second single off his upcoming solo album. Sir Michael displays some of his high-energy, creative rhymes over an instrumental driven by classic strings and heavy percussion. The more relaxed flow of the young, skilled Rockie Fresh, a recent MMG signee, contrasts perfectly to that of the Cool Kid, while the production of J. Hill and iamLpeezy, also Chicago-based, ensures that the midwest sound shines through. Sir Michael’s Lap of Lux is set to drop on August 2nd and will kick off what should be a great month for music.
