New Year, new beginnings, new expectations and as always this time of year… predictions for what may come. Here are a few of my faves. Rolling Stone says, Rihanna will sell out stadiums with her 2016 tour and her loooong-awaited Anti  album will actually be released. They feel the use of Holograms in concerts will go bust but EDM is here to stay. Forbes says,  Taylor Swift will double her past years earnings. With Taylor grossing about $4 million a show, expect her to hit South America and more of Europe for earnings close to $200 million. Other predictions suggest Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez will get back together… at least for a collab. and Kanye will fiiiiiiiinally release his new album. One thing I can predict for sure is this week’s show is off…the…hook!

Its New Year’s weekend and that means it’s a serious P-A-R-T-Y! I’m gonna be slaying the decks with exclusive HK remixes on Elle King, Jason Derulo, Flo Rida, Adele and The Weekend! I’ll also be bending soundwaves at the beginning of 2016 on Halsey, Selena, Charlie Puth and DNCE! You’re gonna want to amp the volume way up for hot new tracks from Florence & The Machine, One Direction and the Biebs! It’s all happening right here this weekend! 

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

I try to get creative with my gift giving but Ed Sheeran and Lady Gaga have me beat. Ed bought his folks a million-dollar flat right across the street from his home. Plus a new car. Well every house needs a car right? These wonderful presents do come with a caveat though - Ed’s parents will have to do some babysitting should the need arise in the future. Not to be out done Lady Gaga’s record label sent what Gaga describes as “a White Angel from heaven”. Interscope delivered a gorgeous white pony right to her door. Gaga wrote on Twitter “I will ride, and care for, and love her forever. I was so surprised!” Well yeah!!!

I have some stellar gifts for your inner ear! It’s a Christmas weekend party packed with killer jams and exclusive HK remixes on Ellie Goulding, Adele, Shawn Mendes, Drake, Elle King, Andy Grammer and One Direction. Then just when you think your speakers are going to blow…I’m droppin’ the needle on new tracks from Fall Out Boy, DNCE, Ariana Grande, Jess Glynne and so much more!

The holiday season brings many a party and lots of joy. But anxiety can also creep in with finals, travel, buying gifts that burn a hole in the pocket and the much talked about and oh so special “Family Stress”. Don't worry though, cause In The Mix with HK™ is gonna kick that holiday stress to the curb. I mean, we are here for YOU! And the experts have our back.  Mayo Clinic says, in their “Tips To Tame Stress”, that “listening to music is a good stress reliever because it provides a mental distraction, reduces muscle tension and decreases stress hormones”. They go as far to say “Crank up the volume and let your mind be absorbed by the music”.  Oh yeah …I’m gonna be crankin’ up the volume this weekend with an all-out sonic party jam you just can’t miss!

Look at what I'm putting under the tree for you. Brand new exclusive HK mixes on Gwen StefaniCharlie Puth, Flo Rida and Justin Beiber. I'm also filling my Santa sleigh with exclusive never before heard versions of hits from  Demi Lovato, DNCE, Adele, and Shawn Mendes! My bounty of musical presents is sure to excite when I unwrap the likes of  One Direction, Daya, Tori Kelly , Adam Lambert  and more.

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

Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers join me this weekend on In The Mix with HK™

Their work includes remixes of Ellie Goulding, The Wanted and Bastille but they are best known for their own catchy club anthem #Selfie. That hilarious track about self-absorbed internet culture crossed them over to Pop status while selling over 10 million copies globally. 

Now The Chainsmokers are smokin’ up the decks with another hit - Roses. Tune in to learn more about the group, their song and life on a major label.

Party season has officially arrived and I've got just what you need for your holiday soundtrack. Get ready to deck the halls with exclusive HK remixes on Drake, Justin Bieber, Adele, Rudimental feat. Ed Sheeran, Fall Out Boy and of course The Chainsmokers! Plus my special reworking of several classics and a few new bangers to stuff your stocking!
