Ella Yelich-O’Connor better known by her stage name Lorde is blowin’ up on the music scene. This sixteen year old singer-songwriter from New Zealand has already drawn comparisons to Lana Del Rey and Grimes. She also just took the #1 spot on Billboard's Digital chart with “Royals” and her debut album “Pure Heroine” is about to drop. There’s a whole lotta buzz about Lorde’s talent and potential staying power. Do you think this little Kiwi is going to be shaking things up for years to come? Hit me up with your thoughts.

I’ll be shakin’ things up with a custom HK remix of Lorde’s Royals along with a musical menagerie of your favorite hits In The Mix with HK this weekend. The needle will be droppin’ on new remixes on Avicii – “Wake Me Up”, Capital Cities – “Safe And Sound”, Krewella – “Live for The Night” and Selena Gomez – “Slow Down”. But there ain't no slowin’ down when I tear it up with PinkEminemKaty PerrySara BareillesIcona PopLady GagaImagine Dragons and more!

It’s gonna be an all-out, full board, Royal party this weekend so check your local listings!

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

Through the years Sweden has provided the world with a lot of great pop dance music. In fact two of the countries current hottest exports are blazing a trail up the american music charts as we speak -  Avicii and Icona Pop.

Icona Pop is currently on tour in America and I had the pleasure of checking out their show as well as hanging with the girls (Caroline and Aino). After being dumped and heartbroken these gals found each other through a mutual friend and in just 24 hours over a bottle of wine and a laptop their first song was written. "I Love It" was one of this year's anthems and "All Night" is poised to follow in it's footsteps. Their live show is fantastic, get out and see them. In the meantime, make sure you're listening this weekend when I'll be talking with Icona Pop and featuring my latest reworking of their song.

In addition to the sweet duo from Sweden I'm bringing the boombastic beat of Eminem's new one "Berzerk". Plus killer new remixes on Katy Perry's - "Roar", Awolnation - "Sail", Lady Gaga - "Applause" and Tegan & Sara - "Closer". My sonic pleasure knows no bounds when I take the brand spankin' new Britney Spears single "Work Bitch" and work the s**t out of it. Plus LordeMileyAviciiMack & RyanKrewellaEnrique Iglesias and more!

With talk of Miley Cyrus’s performance at the VMA’s now down to a low hum she wasted no time in getting the media machine bangin’ down walls again with this week’s release of her Wrecking Ball video. It broke the record of most views on Vevo in a 24-hour period. And if that title isn’t enough to talk about you may have noticed she is COMPLETELY naked in the video. I like the video, I mean, she is very easy on the eye and it’s a great track, but being a bit of a germaphobe I have strong concerns about the sanitary condition of that ball and chain. And what was that sledgehammer bangin’ before Miley got a hold of it? I’m just sayin’. Then to add to the media frenzy just yesterday she stepped out on the streets of London in a black bra and VERY sheer pants revealing that she was not wearing underwear! I just can’t get enough. What will she do next!?! Well, On Oct 5th she will be musical guest and host on Saturday Night Live and on Oct. 8th her much anticipated album Bangerz drops. But I’m sure she will grab a few more headlines before then. Busy girl? I should say so.

I’m gettin’ busy In The Mix with HK™ mixing and remixing Miley’s current banger “We Can’t Stop” as well as Lorde – “Royals”, Paramore – “Still Into You”, Maroon 5 – “Love Somebody”,  Avicii – “Wake Me Up” and Calvin Harris/Ellie Goulding – “I Need Your Love”! There’s way too much to tell you about here, but get ready for more audio audacity with my exclusive remixes on new joints from Katy PerryEminemSelena GomezLady Gaga and more!

Actor, songwriter, record producer and innovative rapper Eminem is finally back with the dropping of his brand new single Berzerk. Not only is he back on the scene but he is taking no prisoners as this latest release sold 362,000 copies last week. Berzerk is doing it old school with samples from Billy Squire and Beastie Boys. It’s infectious hook combined with Eminem’s wicked staccato flow assures this one’s gonna blowup. It’s just a taste of what is to come on Eminem’s upcoming eighth studio album, The Marshall Mather LP 2, hitting stores on November 5th.  

You can hear this hot new single with an HK twist when I go Berzerk this weekend In The Mix with HK!

We'll be getting all kinds of patriotic with Bonnie McKee – “American Girl” and Demi Lovato - “Made in The USA”. With ParamoreJustin TimberlakeRobin Thicke and Calvin Harris all In The Mix with HK this weekend the hits just keep on comin’.  As Miley Cyrus says “We Can’t Stop” and we won’t stop all weekend long.
