It is Thanksgiving weekend and we have so much to be thankful for this year. In addition to friends, family and good health - Can we talk new artists! This year’s hot new artists were droppin’ like my needle on a brand new 12inch. When I was a kid I was thankful for Mac & Cheese (actually I still am, that s*** is good). Now I’m thankful for Mack & Ryan. What would the year have been without “Thrift Shop”, “Can’t Hold Us” and “White Walls”? Dang, that dynamic duo is killing it! Also, big thanks for Lorde, as I predict she is going to be the gift that keeps on giving. Joining the busted out in 2013 party are AviciiFlorida Georgia Line, Ariana Grande, ZeddPhillip Phillips, Imagine Dragons and so many more. Thank you music Gods! 

This Thanksgiving weekend I’m giving thanks by officially kickin’ off the holiday season with an In The Mix with HK™ throw down you don’t want to miss! Get ready to bust loose with custom HK remixes on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - “White Walls”, Lorde – “Royals”, Katy Perry – “Unconditionally”, Lady Gaga – “Applause”, John Newman – “Love me Again”, Enrique Iglesias – “Heart Attack”, Paramore – “Still Into You” and a bevy of more non-stop beats! It’s all goin’ down this weekend coast to coast and worldwide on the web!

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

Who will we be talking about on Monday after the American Music Awards? Can Miley Cyrus best her media frenzy from the VMA’s? With a who’s who of the Pop machine performing Sunday evening it is anyone’s guess. Of course we can always count on Jennifer LopezKe$ha and Lady Gaga for bold clothing choices but who will bring the best vocal performance of the night? Wow, that is a tough one. Christina Aguilera (God, I do love her voice) has the pipes to shut down the competition. Still, Katy Perry without question can “Roar” and lets not underestimate the power of the “I already know I won a mondo awardo so I’m just gonna kill it performance”.  Could it beRihanna after being honored with the first time ever AMA Icon Award? Experts say that may just boost Riri’s delivery and ego to literally blow the roof off the Nokia Theater.  

In my pre AMA throwdown I will be blowin up your woofers with a power packed all-star remix! Tune into In The Mix with HK this weekend for AMA nominees like you have never heard them before! Plus custom HK remixes on One Republic – “Counting Stars”, Ellie Goulding – “Burn”,  Justin Timberlake – “TKO”, John Newman – “Love Me Again”, Zedd featuring Haley Williams – “Stay the Night” and you’re definitely gonna want to “Marry Me” when you hear Jason Derulo’s ballad turned into a honeymoon banger!

Being a pop star isn't just about hits and talent. It has a lot to do with image and that includes the artist's name. If you are the next Katy Perry and your name is unattractive, dull, difficult to pronounce, unintentionally amusing or just plain…"What were your parents thinking?" - You may want to get a hipper name. Would Onika Maraj have sold over 5 million albums globally if she hadn't become Nicki Minaj? Would Avicii be as cool as Tim Bergling and let's all agree Lady Germonotta just doesn't have the same ring as Lady GagaJason Derulo was fine with his first name but I'm so glad he didn't go with his last given name of Desrouleaux. My tongue is in a knot just thinking about it. Stage names are a part of the star package, but how do you go about getting your new power name? Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor says she was into royals and aristocracy since she was a kid and thought Lord was super rad but too masculine. So, she put an "e" on the end of it.

Coming up this weekend on In The Mix with HK™ I'm gonna avoid getting lost in the name game and opt to take you on a musical journey instead. Tune in to hear my custom tasty nuggets on The Neighbourhood - "Sweater Weather", Lady Gaga - "Applause", Katy Perry - "Roar", Zedd & Haley Williams - "Stay The Night" and the brand new banger from Travie McCoy & Jason Mraz - "Rough Water". You'll need plenty of fresh water to cool down after I burn up the floor with new fresh takes on Eminem, Rihanna, One Republic, John Newman, Bruno Mars, Miley Cyrus and Cash Cash feat. Bebe Rexha.

There's plenty of bangin' beats and fresh remixes to go around so bring the gang and don't miss a single second of my commercial free music sets. It's all your faves like you've never heard them before!

Eminem’s album The Marshall Mathers LP2  dropped earlier this week and is set to hit #1 and grab the second biggest sales week for an album this year. He is also now the first lead artist to nab four concurrent top 20 hits on Billboard Hot 100 since the Beatles did it in 1964.  Slim Shady is spreading the love with his track The Monster featuring Rihanna. Giving Rihanna her 25th top 10 and tying her with Elvis Presley in 8th place for the most top 10’s in the charts history. Now that is a MONSTER hit!
