Some of our favorite powerhouse artists dropped singles this month as we wait in anxious anticipation for their next albums. It’s been 4 long years since Bruno Mars gave us his sophomore album and man am I ready for #3 . Mars dropped 24K Magic, the first single and title track of his new album slated for release next month and fans couldn’t be happier. Also due for an album are Maroon 5. They just dropped Don’t Wanna Know featuring seven time Grammy award winning artist Kendrick Lamar and it’s already blazing up the charts. Three years have passed since John Legend’s last album warmed our hearts. He recently released the first track Love Me Now from his upcoming album, Darkness and Light, due out later this year.

What do these songs have in common (aside from being great)? They’re all on the list of upcoming exclusive HK remixes to be debuted in this week’s In The Mix with HK™! But wait there’s more… X Ambassadors, Kiiara, The Chainsmokers, Sia, Ellie Goulding and Calvin Harris will all be getting a custom HK tweaking!  Plus Part II of our exclusive interview with Alessia Cara and so much more! It’s an all-out weekend party throw down you don’t wanna miss!

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

Alessia Cara is the 20 year old Canadian singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist who is suddenly everywhere and this weekend she’ll be over “Here” on In The Mix with HK™! Here was the first original song Alessia ever wrote and released. It racked up 50,000 plays in 24 hours and elevated to the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100! Alessia penned that wallflower anthem about a party she attended in her friend’s basement. She says “I felt small and uncomfortable so I asked my mum to come get me”. Glad she stayed long enough to get the whole experience and change her life forever! Alessia tells us a lot more about how that song came to be and her latest track Scars To Your Beautiful.

I can’t wait to share my custom remix of Scars To Your Beautiful. Also coming up in this week’s show are exclusive HK remixes on one of Alessia's previous touring mates Coldplay. Plus Lady Gaga, Twenty One Pilots, Zara Larsson and Ariana Grande. I’ll be bangin’ new beats from Bruno Mars, Bastille and Frenship. And, I plan on crackin' your cranium with a few HK surprises on some old favorites! 

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

Shaggy, our Jamaican feel good buddy, has no worries with his new track That Love and our German friend Zedd is back for part II of our interview and his latest hit Starving. Don't worry! I won’t leave you hungry for more…U.S.A’s gonna represent in full force too! Plus there's this week's PICK TO HIT™ and I'll revisit and re-imagine a throwback classic.

Zedd has another hit on his hands as the featured producer on Hailee Steinfeld and Grey's infectious track Starving. He sits down with me this week to discuss the very surprising reason he got into Djing, what it's like being a ghost producer for others (will he name names?) and why he thought he could make money in the music business. Zedd certainly is not your typical EDM Producer/DJ. Even though he’s a multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning artist, some may not realize the extent of his vast talent and experience. From early childhood music was a big part of his daily routine. Raised by two classically trained musicians, Zedd began playing piano when only four years old. At times, throughout his childhood he wrote a song a day. By the age of twelve he learned to play the drums, shortly after joined a hardcore/metal trio. As a pre-teen Zedd was composing and producing rock songs in his band's studio. Fast forward to today and Zedd’s gift of musicality, knowledge of various genres, instrumentation, production and composition has make Zedd the extraordinary artist he is. His song credits range from Producer, Composer, Vocals, Keyboards to Mixing, Mastering, Editing and Remixing. Just three days ago Zedd added the League of Legends World Championship theme song Ignite to his list of credits. Apparently not only gamers approve, as Ignite has over 6.5 million views on YouTube!

This week I’ll be playin’ with Zedd’s latest track Starving plus whipping up all the hits you’re hungry for! Get ready to turn the volume up on exclusive HK remixes of The Chainsmokers, Alessia Cara, Cash Cash, Hailee Steinfeld and Kungs vs. Cookin' on 3 Burners! Plus new tracks from The Weekend, Nathan SykesMartin Garrix/Bebe Rexha, and Sia that will have you feelin' the beat! Come on, come on, turn the radio on! 

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