MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS AND EMMY AWARDS RECAP!


The MTV VMA's and Emmy's are now behind us. What did you think? Did the VMA's live up to the hype? Did your favorite television show or actor take home the gold. Breaking Bad cleaned up and I couldn't be happier. That show will go down as one of the best written, directed and acted shows to ever hit the small screen. And I gotta tell you…I think this year's VMA's were one of the best. There were great performances, no BS antics and more professionalism than ever before. That's something it always lacked. In previous years the spotlight seemed to be more on shock value than substance!

This weekend on IN THE MIX WITH HK™ you are going to experience the best of both worlds. There will be great musical substance and you will be shocked with what I've done to all your favorite hits. Wait! Don't panic! It's a good thing. I promise! Imagine if you could take all your fave hits, pump them up on steroids and Redbull, mix them all together with no commercials or talking in-between, and you didn't even have to wait in line to get into the VIP. Well, imagine no more, cause that’s what I"ll be doing for you all weekend long, coast to coast and worldwide.

I've got brand new re-imagined mixes on Sam Smith – Stay With MeMaroon 5 – MapsClean Bandit – Rather Be and Coldplay – A Sky Full of Stars. Plus I've got a bevy of new bangers, more of my exclusive interview with Rixton and a ton of the best party music to make your weekend sizzle!

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

RIXTON GETS IN THE MIX WITH HK™


Although they’re boys and are a band, Rixton isn’t your typical “Boy Band”. They have been writing and playing for years and when they dropped their debut EP Me And My Broken Heart in March it blew up. This week Rixton sits down with me to talk about how the group came together, their new single Wait On Me and what we can expect to hear on their first full length album.

There will be no Waiting On Me for the bombastic hits and custom HK remixes this weekend. I’ll be dropping the needle on all your faves including Charli XCXBoom Clap, Iggy Azalea / Rita Ora - Black Widow, Taylor Swift's fresh out of the oven track – Shake It Off, SiaChandelier and so… much… more.! Get ready to be swinging from the chandelier this weekend with In The Mix with HK™!

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

MUSIC AND LAUGHTER FILL MY SOUL


Like everyone this week my jaw dropped when I heard Robin Williams had died. Then when more info of his death revealed he took his own life, I was in shock. Even though I was well aware of his past drinking and drug abuse, it's hard to believe this man – who was capable of so much humor and depth – was incapable of his own self happiness. His battle with depression was a terrible one, but he still managed to fill our hearts and souls with much laughter and incredible serious work as well.

As I headed into the IN THE MIX WITH HK™ studios this week, Robin's spirit was with me in the groove. All I could think about was how music and laughter fill my soul. They both come from such a passionate place, yet often times need no explanation.

The only thing I want to explain right now is how you should prepare yourself for the most amazing sonic experience this weekend. It's gonna be an over the top party bound to leave you feeling invigorated and more alive! From a rebirth of Disclosure's – Latch to my heart-pumping take on Ed Sheeran's – Don't, it will leave you with a Bang Bang to the head from Jessie J/Ariana Grande/Nicki Minaj and more!

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