BASTILLE TEARS IT UP LIVE! [PHOTOS]


Not all bands can rock the stage as well as the studio but Bastille does it with wicked skill and has been tearin’ up the U.S. on tour! We all know Bastille from their monster hit Pompeii, which climbed to #5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and sold more than three million singles. They’re hoping to hit the charts again with their recently unveiled single, Torn Apart, set to drop November 30th.  

Between touring gigs Bastille is hard at work on their second album. The group says they made their first album not knowing if anyone would hear it so they made if for themselves. They say the same will be true with their next album stating, “We want to make a record we love. But it’s weird to know that there are potentially a whole load of people waiting to hear it”.

You don’t have to wait to hear sick beats, bangers and all your faves. Tune in all weekend long when I’ll be blowin up the ones and twos with custom HK remixes on Iggy Azalea featuring Rita OraBlack Widow, Jeremih featuring YGDon’t Tell Em, Pitbull featuring John Ryan Fireball, Tove Lo – Habits, Calvin Harris featuring John NewmanBlame, Clean Bandit featuring Jess Glynne– Rather Be and so much more! There’s no place I’d Rather Be than with you this weekend, boomin’ out your speakers!

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

ARIANA'S EXTRA GRANDE LIFE!


When I think of Ariana a few things come to mind…multi-octave vocalist, international pop star, TV star, composer, Broadway performer, multi award winner and the list goes on. Pretty much…Ariana Grande is having no Problem at anything.

Just this year she’s had three songs in the top 10 at the same time. Making her the second woman to achieve such a feat, the first being Adele. On top of that, Problem broke a record as the fastest song to ever climb to #1 on iTunes, doin’ it in just 37 minutes. It takes me longer to get out of bed in the morning. Then we have Grande’s first two albums. Yeah… they both debuted at #1. She’s the first woman to do that since Susan Boyle in 2010. If all that success isn’t enough Gloria Estefan reportedly wants Ariana to portray her in On Your Feet, the Broadway- bound musical based on Estefan’s life. Then there’s that leading voice-acting role Ariana just landed for the animated film Underdogs, slated to drop in theaters April 10th, 2015. What’s that? Oh, just the sound of movie star being added to her list. And to top it all off Grande is barely 21!

I know what’s on my list and that’s bringing you non-stop exclusive mixes, epic drops and bodacious beats this weekend on In The Mix With HK™.

Blastin' out your speaks is gonna be Taylor SwiftShake It Off, Fall Out BoyCenturies, Maroon 5Animals and of course my blazin' remix on Ariana'sBreak Free.
