Anyone who has been following the scene closely should be familiar with Diplo. Simply put, he’s legendary status. From the days working with M.I.A. to his collaborated efforts with Switch, this American-based producer has been a huge influence to many. His eclectic style and love for music is what really makes Diplo a respectable figure and a pleasure to listen to. Not too long ago a radio rip of his trapstyle remix of Sweet Nothing aired on BBC 1; this should give you an idea of his diverse style of play.
To add on to this man’s greatness, Diplo shared with his SoundCloud followers a 36-minute mix he made while being stoned last night. It features a bunch of old records that perfectly define the state of mind he was in.
Skrillex teams with up a couple members of The Doors to create this beast. The track’s going to be part of what’s no doubt going to be an epic soundtrack for the documentary film Re:Generation; the film follows Pretty Lights, DJ Premier, and Mark Ronson among others. Make sure to check out the trailer here. Download link
I feel like this song is appropriate as it has been nothing but sunny in the ATX. This song is made to be played by the poolside while you have a “blunt in hand and a Corona.” Download link.
My love for the Chili Peppers is on par with their love of California. This is their first single off their upcoming album I’m With You due out Auguest 30th. Flea’s bassline is the shit on this, but when isn’t it really? The mp3 quality isn’t the best, so make sure to get the high quality on iTunes. Just make sure to give it a listen before I get a DMCA notice! Download link
I’m not sure what the deal is with these upcoming bands all referencing their music to the 80′s and going synth-psycho in their songs. But whatever, it works! The Cali band, The New Division have definitely gotten their inspiration from decades prior if you couldn’t tell by the name. They’ve gotta be fans of the British legends Joy Division & New Order. But when I first heard their sound, Depeche Mode came tomind. The synths in this song produces a melancholy daze which is perfect for a rainy day. Download link

Dirty Gold comes from the beaches of San Diego, Cali-forn-I-A. This jam is straight out of a beach flick with sailboats and seagulls passing by. Go ahead and reserve a spot on your summer playlist. This is a song sure to make some serious waves until sunset.
