IF DJing WAS AN OLYMPIC EVENT...


If DJing was an Olympic event Calvin Harris would bring home the gold….again! According to Forbes he tops the list as highest–paid DJ in the world for the fourth year in a row. Raking in an impressive $63 million before taxes in the last year. Getting paid $400,000 per Vegas gig is a big chunk of Calvin’s income. With song writing credits, additional appearances and advertising revenue supplementing his fortune. Tiesto brings in the silver with a little more than half of Harris’s profits. He’s kept busy with 100 gigs over the year and a sweet 7-Up deal. The bronze goes to David Guetta with a mere $28 million in earnings aided by his Vegas Wynn residency. All of this proving a serious need for a career review with my manager.

I’ll be reviewing, reworking and remixing hit tracks by Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna, Pink, Justin Timberlake, Fifth Harmony, The Chainsmokers, Hailee Steinfeld and so much more! Plus new music and a couple throwbacks you won’t see comin’! I’ve got an In the Mix with HK™ party of Olympic proportions coming your way! So light the torch, turn up the volume, set a reminder and call the crew!

Remember…if it's hot, if it's new and it makes you wanna move…you're In The Mix with HK™.

TWENTY ONE PILOTS CONTINUE TO FLY HIGH ON IN THE MIX WITH HK™


Twenty One Pilots continue to dominate with three (count them 3!!!) of their hits well in the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100! Their album Blurryface has been on the album chart for a whopping 64 weeks and is still at No.3!

And this week Tyler and Josh are back with HK for Part 2 of our exclusive interview. This week you'll learn what their favorite songs are to listen to and perform, how the duo’s new found success effected their family and friends and how they worked through their stage theatrics to get to the elaborate concert spectacle we see today. All this and more coming up this week on In The Mix with HK™!

When I say more I mean more custom HK remixes of all your favorite hits like you’ve never heard them before! Plus more new jams from Britney SpearsAndy Grammer, The 1975 and others! Rest, hydrate and repeat cause the beats are gonna be massive and the party epic!

TWENTY ONE PILOTS GET IN THE MIX WITH HK™

Hot off their album Blurryface going platinum, a 2016 MTV Video Music Awards nomination for Heathens and Billboard contributing writer Sean Ross (from Ross on Radio) naming Ride “The Song Of Summer”-Tyler and Josh of Twenty One Pilots join HK to discuss their album, and what it was like writing Heathens for the Suicide Squad movie soundtrack and more. Blurryface has propelled this little two man powerhouse into the mainstream with a fierce fan base. Rolling Stone calls them “the biggest group to break out in the past year, also one of the hardest-to-categorize hit acts in recent memory.” Oh yeah, they've also been selling out arenas all over the country including two sold-out nights next week at Madison Square Garden in New York. 
Tune in this weekend to check out my pimped out "Ride" when I put my spin on Twenty One Pilots hit track plus exclusive HK remixes on OneRepublic, Pink, Lukas Graham, Meghan Trainor, Nick Jonas, Drake and more! My two turntables are gonna be "Just Like Fire" so lock it in! 

Remember…if it's hot, if it's new and it makes you wanna move…you're In The Mix with HK™.

SIA GETS RICH FROM CHEAP THRILLS


Drake’s One Dance has been camped out as the #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart since May (10 weeks). Sia’s smash hit, Cheap Thrills that features Sean Paul, knocked Drake off the throne with her ode to a low cost night out. Making this the first time Sia has worn the #1 crown as an artist and Paul’s fourth time at the top in more than 10 years. It could have just as easily been Rihanna looking down from the tower. Rihanna’s manager had asked Sia to write another Diamonds. Sia sent Cheap Thrills to the Rihanna camp but they passed on it. Here's where I get to brag and say I told you so (why does that feel so good. LOL!). Over six months ago I wrote a blog about Sia's new album consisting of songs that she wrote for other artists and all had been rejected. I went on to say…their loss would be Sia's gain! And here she is six months later with the #1 song in the country! 

This week I’m putting Sia’s #1 song on In The Mix with HK™ with an exclusive HK remix just for you! I’ll also be upping the watts on hits by Shawn Mendes, Katy Perry, Flume, Fifth Harmony, Coldplay, Twenty One Pilots and so much more! Plus new jams from Major Lazer featuring Justin Bieber and Steve Aoki & Boehm featuring Walk The Moon! I’ve got your weekend party soundtrack all cued up!
