Jason Derulo hit the scene like a typhoon a couple years back with a string of hits including "Whatcha Say", "In My Head", "Ridin' Solo" and "Breathing". Then, just when he was embarking on a live tour he broke a vertabrae in his neck during rehearsals. The tour was canceled and Jason's career came to a sudden halt.

Well, I'm happy to say Jason fully recovered from his injury and is back stronger than ever. I'll be talking with him about his new single…"The Other Side", along with how good it is to be back, when he's In The Mix with HK™ this weekend.

I'm also featuring brand spankin' new exclusive HK remixes on Olly Murs - "Troublemaker", Will.I.Am/Justin Bieber - "#thatpower", Zedd - "Clarity" and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - "Can't Hold Us". It's time to get our Spring fling on with the latest from Emeli SandeArianna GrandeCalvin Harris and Krewella. Plus more HK custom mixes on PitbullFall Out BoyOf Monsters and MenJustin Timberlake and Bruno Mars.

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

Sometimes bad things happen, and there are certainly bad people in the world who are looking to bring harm to us. However, one thing always proves true…Americans at their core will do anything to help their fellow man. Think about it…After 9/11, after a tornado, flood, hurricane, after the senseless slaughter of innocent children in Connecticut, the Oklahoma bombing, Columbine and more recently the Boston Marathon Bombing and fertilizer factory explosion in West, Texas – average people jumped in to help without hesitation. Every time there's a tragedy, Americans are there to pick–up the pieces, send money and even more importantly put themselves in danger and at risk of peril to save and assist a total stranger. I celebrate this spirit and pay homage to all those heroes who run to the problem and not away from it.

With that feeling deep inside me I dedicate this week's show to all of our American heroes. It's been a really ruff week, I know. I've spoken with so many people around the country and everyone's head is spinning with the events of the last several days. So, I've put some extra TLC into all the studio productions this week and I'm hoping to take your mind from a stressful place to a thumpin' good place. Be on the lookout for all new HK remixes on the Will.I.Am / Justin Beiber collab - "#thatpower", Bruno Mars - "When I Was Your Man", Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - "Cant Hold Us" and a totally insane reworking on One Republic - "If I Lose Myself". 

You'll also be bumpin to my exclusive takes on Of Monsters and Men - "Little Talks", Icona Pop - "I Love It", Fall Out Boy - "My Songs Know What You Did" and Justin Timberlake - "Mirrors". As always there will be plenty more surprises and bodacious beats. Check it out!!!

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

Big headlines this week were about gun control, a massive stabbing rampage on a college campus and possible nuclear war from North Korea. Yet in the middle of all of that, I still saw headlines about Justin Beiber cutting his hair like Skrillex and RihannaTaylor Swift no longer wearing eye liner and Ray J dropping a new track called "I Hit It First" - a total diss to both Kanye West and his baby bump mama Kim K. Let's not forget Louis Anderson is out from the show Splash (what knuckle head tv exec came up with this idea). Plus, it was an emotional week on DWTS and we all want to know is Mariah Carey to soft? Will Nicki Minaj be back? Ahh!!! Isn't it great to know that no matter what serious things are going on in the world…America will always have it's guilty pleasures. What do you think?

What really matters to me is my family, friends, music and all of the above. You see I'm a news junkie. The bad, the good and the ugly. And when the events of the day are bad, it's nice to lose yourself in the superfluous. Another thing I can always lose myself in is the groove, and man did I get lost this week. I've got a bevy of sonic gems ready to bust out this weekend. I'm talking a whole new crop of HK ear-gasims! Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - "Can't Hold Us", Hot Chelle Rae - "Hung Up", Justin Timberlake - "Mirrors" and Demi Lovato - "Heart Attack". I'm also stoked for you to hear what I've done to Emeli Sande - "Next to Me", Fall Out Boy - "My Songs Know What You Did", Calvin Harris - "Sweet Nothing" and the new club banger from Will. I.Am & Justin Beiber - "#thatpower". There's all that and plenty of other surprises. We're also going back stage to talk with Andy Grammer, so don't miss a second of this week's 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™.

Andy Grammer's spring tour is now well under way and we caught his sold out show with Parachute. This tour is a wonderful matchup cause both acts have a distinct musical feel and connection with their audience and are truly great friendly people. I'm talking totally cool, sit down, let's hang and shoot the s**t people.

In addition to everything off his debut album entitled…Andy Grammer, including the hit singles "Keep Your Head Up" and "Fine By Me, Andy did several interesting covers including a reinvention of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's "Thrift Shop". This talented singer, songwriter and producer seems to be having as much fun performing as the audience is listening. He's still cushing over how surprised he is to have people coming to his shows and I hope he never looses that sincere humility. 

In the upcoming weeks I look forward to sharing my interview with Andy along with some seriously hot new bangers I've been in the studio working on. I'm not kidding people…It's getting mad crazy in here. I've got back to back beats and non-stop music mixes – which means no commercial interruptions for you newbies! For my sonic veterans who know what to expect, get ready for a new crop of HK ear-gasims. I'm bringin' the spring heat with the likes of Bruno Mars - "When I Was Your Man", Zedd f/Foxes - "Clarity" and Krewella - "Alive". I'll also be holding court with a brand new take on the Will.I.Am/Justin Bieber thumper "#thatpower", Demi Lovato - "Heart Attack" and Of Monsters and Men - "Little Talks". 

There's way to much ear candy to list here, but I do feel compelled to pull back the curtain and prepare you for TOTALLY new reinvented takes on "All Around The World", "Daylight", "Suit & Tie", "Thrift Shop", "With Ur Love" and "Sweet Nothing". Damm! I probably shouldn't tell you this, but…you need to be listening this week if your gonna hear my exclusive take on Justin Timberlake - "Mirrors". There…I said it…I shouldn't have, but the cats now out of the bag!

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