As Prince said…"Let's Get Crazy". Although, I don't think he had the following in mind. Shakira, who I love and has a great voice, performed her new song "Empire" (which I think is a monster hit) on The Voice. Here’s where it gets crazy…she’s a judge on a hit music competition show and she lip-synced! I'm sorry people, but that just doesn't send the right message to contestants and viewers alike. Especially when this little pint sized momma can sing her a_ _ off. Come on…really? 

If you don't think that's crazy I've got some stupid for you. An old recording engineer who worked with Jay Z back in the day tried to extort $100, 000 from the hip-hop Don. Apparently he was holding on to master recordings worth an estimated 15-20 million dollars and he reached out to cut a deal. They setup a meeting at the storage facility where the tapes were being held and the only people there to greet the would-be extortionist were the cops. Dah! Do you think the Roc-a-wear tycoon was gonna go along for that ride. No! Now the courts will decide what happens to those masters.

I'm creating a vault filled with exclusive HK remixes for your partying pleasure and this weekend I'm tossing in a few more. Wait to you check out what I've done to Justin Timberlake - "Not A Bad Thing", Rixton - "Me And My Broken Heart", Iggy Azalea & Charlie XCX - "Fancy", Chainsmokers - "#Selfie" and Afrojack - "Ten Feet Tall". I'm also putting my sonic glaze to Ed Sheeran's killer new track "Sing", Christina Perri - "Human", Jason Derulo - "Talk Dirty" and the brand new banger from Katy Perry - "Birthday". There's also more of my exclusive interview with Christina Perri, our Demi Lovato give-away and plenty of non-stop mixes so make sure you're tuning in!

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

Christina Perri went from waitress to superstar back in 2010 when her single, "Jar of Hearts", blew up after it was featured on the television show So You Think You Can Dance. The single went on to sell over 3 million copies in the United States and was a hit around the world. In 2011 her debut album, Lovestrong, was released. Then in 2012, she wrote and recorded "A Thousand Years" for the film and soundtrack of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. The song went on to be certified 4× platinum. Perri's second studio album, Head or Heart, was released on April 1, 2014 and Its lead single, "Human", is currently jumping up the charts. And now this busy lady is on tour.

This week she takes time out of her busy schedule and tour  to talk with me about her personal approach to song writing and more. I'll also unleash my custom HK remix on "Human".

Speaking of remixes, you're gonna trip out when you hear what I've done to Afrojack  - "Ten Feet Tall", Martin Garrix - "Animals", Neon Trees – "Sleeping With A Friend" and Katy Perry - "Dark Horse". But things really get epic when I drop totally re-imagined versions of The Chainsmokers - "#Selfie", Bastille - "Pompeii", Jason Derulo - "Talk Dirty" and A Great Big World - "Say Something".

This week the music community lost a legend. Frankie Knuckles the renowned DJ, remixer and record producer left us too soon. His contributions to the Music Industry and DJing are insurmountable. Talking with friends about Frankie’s mad skills got me thinking about what makes a great DJ.

Call it what you want…DJ, Mixer, Beat Juggler, Turntablist, or Mixologist - they are all pretty much one and the same. It’s the person behind the turntables, decks, ones & twos or wheels of steel whose manipulating the music and blending two or more songs into one. Mixing those beats that you never thought would fuse together and doin’ it when you least expected. Or, taking one song and remixing it live into a whole new sonic landscape. On the fly and totally improvised. When the DJ actually becomes one with the groove and melds him or herself into the musical fabric, it’s an amazing site to see and hear. They make their audience scream, dance, sweat and party at that club for hours after their alarm clock says they should’ve been making Z’s. There are various styles of DJing, tricks of the trade, types of gadgets and gear but what really makes a DJ great…is their ears!. Hearing the musicality of a wicked mix and holding the beat with only your ears as a guide…that’s what separates the good from the great. Frankie Knuckles was one of the best and a true legend. I know he will be keeping the mixes going cause heaven just got a new house mixer. Ain’t that the ultimate residency!

On this side of the pearly gates, get ready for some new mixes that are just jonesing to break loose. Beyoncé is gonna be “Drunk in Love” when she skids into Eminem’s “Headlights” and Tiesto’s “Red Lights” won’t be enough to stop Demi Lovato from singing “Neon Lights” when she’s ready.  It’s a mad lit up party you don’t want to miss and we haven’t even talked about custom HK remixes yet. Oooooh Yeah!!!…. Shakira featuring Rihanna – “Can’t Remember To Forget You”, Calvin Harris - “Summer”, Christina Perri – “Human”,  and Neon Trees “Sleeping With A Friend” plus more banging remixes you have to hear to believe! It’s all going down worldwide this Friday and Saturday night when you’re 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™".
