Zedd has another hit on his hands as the featured producer on Hailee Steinfeld and Grey's infectious track Starving. He sits down with me this week to discuss the very surprising reason he got into Djing, what it's like being a ghost producer for others (will he name names?) and why he thought he could make money in the music business. Zedd certainly is not your typical EDM Producer/DJ. Even though he’s a multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning artist, some may not realize the extent of his vast talent and experience. From early childhood music was a big part of his daily routine. Raised by two classically trained musicians, Zedd began playing piano when only four years old. At times, throughout his childhood he wrote a song a day. By the age of twelve he learned to play the drums, shortly after joined a hardcore/metal trio. As a pre-teen Zedd was composing and producing rock songs in his band's studio. Fast forward to today and Zedd’s gift of musicality, knowledge of various genres, instrumentation, production and composition has make Zedd the extraordinary artist he is. His song credits range from Producer, Composer, Vocals, Keyboards to Mixing, Mastering, Editing and Remixing. Just three days ago Zedd added the League of Legends World Championship theme song Ignite to his list of credits. Apparently not only gamers approve, as Ignite has over 6.5 million views on YouTube!

This week I’ll be playin’ with Zedd’s latest track Starving plus whipping up all the hits you’re hungry for! Get ready to turn the volume up on exclusive HK remixes of The Chainsmokers, Alessia Cara, Cash Cash, Hailee Steinfeld and Kungs vs. Cookin' on 3 Burners! Plus new tracks from The Weekend, Nathan SykesMartin Garrix/Bebe Rexha, and Sia that will have you feelin' the beat! Come on, come on, turn the radio on! 

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

Nick Jonas may have just turned 24 but he has, what some would consider, a lifetime of accomplishments and a whole lot goin’ on. He’s recently wrapped up his acclaimed Future Now Tour with Demi Lovato in LA, performed his latest track Bacon on The VMA’s and The Late Late Show with James Corden. Just Monday Jonas attended the New York premier for the new James Franco-produced film Goat (opening this weekend), which he stars in and word is he gave an outstanding performance. What’s next for this singer/songwriter, guitarist, drummer, keyboardist, actor? He’s is off to Hawaii to start shooting Jumanji with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. Despite Nick’s love for acting he says that music is still his passion.

This week on In The Mix with HK™ I’m putting my passion to work by adding a little flavor to Jonas’s single, Bacon and that’s just the beginning to my musical buffet! Get ready for exclusive HK remixes on Rihanna, Calvin Harris, X Ambassadors and Lukas Graham. Plus new bangers from Fifth Harmony, Jason Derulo, Ariana Grande, Zara Larsson and so much more. It’s the first weekend of Fall and your favorite hits are gonna be fallen to a brand new beat!

There have been loads of talented two man groups over the years. But it’s been more than 31 years since two musical duos took the top spots on the preeminent of charts - the Billboard Hot 100. This week The Chainsmokers hold at #1 with Closer and Twenty One Pilots have jumped up to the #2 spot with Heathens . Making this feat even more certifiable is that The Chainsmokers are also sitting at #5 with Don’t Let Me Down and Twenty One Pilots have climbed to #6 with Ride. Too have such incredible, simultaneous success from the same two acts and then charting back to back not once but twice in the top six is a serious epic event! Kudos to these dynamic duos!

I’ll tell you what else is epic!…the weekend party soundtrack I’m getting cued up just for you. I’m cranking out exclusive HK remixes on Adele, Charlie Puth, Kungs, Kiiara, Justin Timberlake and Daya. Plus new tracks from Lady Gaga, Meghan Trainor, Ellie Goulding, Frenship and so…much…more! When the needle drops there’s gonna be no Sitting Still And Lookin’ Pretty. You better stock up on Cold Water cause I got what the Girls Like, and a whole lotta Cheap Thrills. I’m Starving for a party and Pink is not the only one that is Just Like Fire, these decks are gonna be smokin’.

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

Zara Larsson is the 18 year old Swedish singer and songwriter with a voice described as somewhere between Rihanna and Lorde. Zara’s big break came at the age of 10 when she won the Swedish version of Got Talent. Since then she’s inked a record deal, had a triple –platinum single and several top 10 hits at home. But Ms. Larsson's song Never Forget You (featuring MNEK) is what really made noise for her in the US. She continues to bring the goods as a featured artist on Tinie Tempah’s hot new single Girls Like.

This weekend I like what I'm cueing up for your all-out party jam. Get ready cause your speakers will be boomin' with my exclusive HK remixes on, Alessia Cara, Justin Bieber, Fifth Harmony, Meghan Trainor and Coldplay. Plus new bangers from Nick Jonas, Mike Posner, X Ambassadors and so much more!

Collaborations have always been a recipe for success in the music biz. Double the talent, double the fan base, double the chance of a hit.
