One of my favorite memories from Coachella 2013 was closing Saturday night in the Gobi Tent with Berlin house duo, Booka Shade. We danced and grooved as the desert came alive amidst glowing palm trees and neon lights.

Last month, Booka Shade released Eve, a new album named after the Manchester studio where it was conceived and produced. Rolling Stone describes the tracks on Eve as atmospheric, jazzy, imaginatively structured and brilliantly built. I would describe this album as the perfect soundtrack for a chill holiday, full of funky synth goodness.
My favorite tracks are Many Rivers, Love Inc. and Crossing Borders. Check out Eve on Spotify:
Lately, I have been obsessed with Kaskade’s 2 hour BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. One of my favorite tracks in the set is Kaskade’s remix of Skylar’s Invisible, a track that was originally released last year and has been remixed by a handful of other great DJs including Fred Falke, John Dahlback and Dirty South. (Skylar also powers the vocals behind Kaskade’s latest single, Room for Happiness.) Enjoy…
Skylar Grey – Invisible (Kaskade Remix)
Everyone knows I’m obsessed with Kaskade. Here’s a track from his new album that has quickly become one of my favorites.
Kaskade feat. Becky Jean Williams – Start Again
Kaskade can do no wrong in my book. And everything I’ve heard from Dragonette has been likeable… so I obviously love this new Kaskade song featuring Dragonette. My only complaint is that it isn’t 8 minutes long.
Kaskade feat. Dragonette – Fire In Your New Shoes
Another oldie but a very goody from one of my favorite dj/artists…
Deadmau5 – Not Exactly
