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.

“Coming True,” the latest single from New York indie rock band Guards, blares and coos like an adorable wild child. The guitars crunch loudly without a care, melodies pour out like honey, and the hungry vocals of frontman Richie Follin are as convincing as ever. After touring on their successful self-titled EP (which you can still listen to here), the group is prepped to release their full-length debut, In Guards We Trust. If this song and “Silver Lining,” which came out back in September, are any indication, it’s going to be one hell of a good and hearty collection.
In Guards We Trust comes out February 5th, 2013 via Black Bell Records.
Los Angeles native, Rey Villalobos, is the genius behind solo project House of Wolves. Did you know his last name, Villa-lobos actually translates to House of Wolves from Spanish? Hey, you learn something new everyday. Rey grew up as a classically trained pianist, recalling Chopin as his main musical influence which pushed him to create such utterly sincere and engaging music.
After a long day of running around, arguing with annoying people and drinking too much coffee this track is the perfect way to relax. Rey’s voice illustrates beautiful peaks of high notes and the hazy piano notes being played with a small glimmer of the tambourine are making my nerves calm down. The lyrics to the track are romantic but up for interpretation, maybe you’re in a place in your life where music like this will stop you in your tracks and make you stop for a second. After purchasing his EP, Fold In The Wind, I have become a huge fan. House of Wolves is currently on tour in Europe, but let’s hope he comes to the states. Grab your copy of his EP here.
There’s something so frenetic, yet so calming about “Waiting Like A Wolf,” a passionately haunting track from new LA electronic artist Alek Fin. Its many organic elements seem to gradually billow up like ghostly smoke clouds and float in — snapping, ticking, shivering at all the right moments — only to fade out into a muted oblivion. Its crystalline fragility calls to mind James Blake, while its somber aura is reminiscent of Eraser-esque Thom Yorke. Be sure to keep your eye on Alek Fin via Facebook.
“Waiting Like A Wolf” is off his Mull EP, out December 1st.
Exploding onto the scene this past year, the DJ duo TNGHT, comprised of Lunice and Hudson Mohawke, flip the infectious Waka Flocka Flame banger “Rooster in My Rari”. Although part of this remix was released earlier this summer, the full version finally leaked to the interwebs. Stripping the original beat, the duo add a trap rip and heavy bass that completely encompasses the turnt up feel of the original.

A couple days ago MartyParty dropped a massive trapped out LP titled, MVP. Featuring everything from Purple Trap to Glitched out Dub, and all of it is original. Some notable tunes you don’t want to miss is this intro titled “MVP”, which drops some clever samples and a heavy 808 infused beat. Possibly the catchiest tune on the whole EP, “All In The Game” dropping a funky 8-Bit melody backed with massive synths and heavy bass. Probably the most unique track is “Angry Beethoven” and it features some laser infused wobbles and melodic chords that come together flawlessly. “Big Block” is the filthiest tune on MVP, and it brings some grimey hard hitting Dub mixed with swirling synths, that hit at all the right times. If you want to check out all 16 tracks on the EP, click here.

Is it too late to add “Kemosabe” to the Top Songs of 2012 list? Shredding guitars and zippy percussion mix in with a soaring, sky-high chorus full of pretty falsettos, an unbelievable hook, and the kind of oomph that’ll make you want to punch the air with your fist. During the bridge, when the song shifts gears for just a second, the way it transitions and allows a momentary breath is mesmerizing. But really, Manchester art-rockers Everything Everything pack a sharp, attacking energy that, from start to finish, keeps the track from losing even just a hint of momentum and keeps you on what feels like an exhilarating roller coaster ride.
“Kemosabe” is the new single off the band’s forthcoming album, Arc, out January 14th.
