There’s a crop of new artists that are dropin’ bodacious beats like a needle on a Technics SL1200mk2!  Walk The Moon, Life Of Dillion, Lunchmoney Lewis (you gotta love that name) and Tori Kelly are all about to detonate your speakers and are all featured in this weeks In The Mix with HK™!

The Cincinnati based Indie Rockers that make up Walk The Moon have been around since 2008. They made noise on the Alternative side but Shut Up And Dance is what pushed them into Pop status. And that track has no signs of stalling. From the other side of the pond, two brothers Robert and Joe Griffin with their friend and founder David Keiffer make up the trio Life Of Dillion. The London based group got their name from an interesting stranger named Dillon who they met while visiting Brazil. Does he get royalty checks? They’ve got their own serious vibe goin’ with Overload. Look for their first album to drop soon. Florida native Lunchmoney Lewis and his catchy comedic hit Bills is laughing its way up the charts. A musical family never hurts. Lewis’s father and Uncle helped found the group Inner Circle of Bad Boys fame. Just saying the title of that song will have it stuck (bad boys bad boys whatcha gonna do) in my head for hours. Then there’s songwriter, singer  and multi- instrumentalist Tori Kelly who has been at it for a while and didn’t give up. She was on Star Search at 10 and America’s Most Talented Kids. She tried out but never made the cut for American Idol. I bet Simon Cowell wishes he signed Tori now that her single Nobody Love is blowing up!

I'll be blowin’ up your system this weekend, so tune in and turn it up!

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

Who's more excited for the show…Me or Sydney?

If you’re a music and TV junkie like me Fox's new hit show Empire is almost as much fun as two turntables and a microphone. What’s not to love? Original music from Timberland, a great cast, intriguing performances, killer guest appearances by Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige and Patti LaBelle, family tension, scores to settle, hip factor and of course sex. Sure I’d be happier if they threw an engineer in the recording studio (I mean who is laying down all those tracks???). Or, if they acted like artists had the extensive contracts that they do and just couldn't walk away whenever they felt like it. But hey! It’s the television equivalent of a modern day hip-hop Dynasty with a great mix for success!

I’ve got a bunch of hot mix sets planned for your party success this weekend on In The Mix with HK™! Buckle up and keep your hands in the car cause I’m hittin’ you up with custom HK remixes on Nick JonasChains, One DirectionNight Changes, Ed SheeranThinking Out Loud, Taylor SwiftBlank Spaces, Kelly Clarkson – Heartbeat Song, Maroon 5Sugar and  Mark Ronson featuring Bruno MarsUptown Funk! Plus new music from Lunchmoney Lewis, Life of Dillon, Carly Rae Jepsen and Ryn Weaver!

Check out my EXCLUSIVE interview with STEVE AOKI. I had a great hang with him and Moxie, who collaborated with Steve on the track I Love It When You Cry. We all got cozy on the Aoki tour bus to cut it up about their new single, the forthcoming Neon Future2 album (coming out in May) and everything from James Brown to the current state of EDM. Along the way we covered some really interesting stuff about life, health and making records for radio!
