Music Makes The World Go Round

There's an old saying…"music is the universal language". And the last few weeks certainly cemented that steadfast belief – in my mind, heart and spirit. While in New Orleans the week of Mardi Gras and Superbowl I encountered many people from all different walks of life, all enjoying the sounds and flavor of many musical genres, coming together like a fine cajun jambalaya. Then while making my way through the Caribbean I came in personal contact with thousands of people from about 70 different countries all enjoying the same sounds at the same time. Talking, smiling, dancing and living life in total harmony. 

When your blessed with the opportunity and ability to travel the world you see this on a grand scale. But I also witness this same effect every time I perform in front of a live audience. So next time your on the dance floor, or hanging in a local pub listening to your favorite rock band, jazz band, blues singer, r&b crooner, or upcoming country star…look around the room and ask yourself – why is it no matter who we are or where we come from, we are all happy together when listening and sharing the experience of music. I wish we all acted like we were dancing to our favorite song everyday!

I promise to have you dancing this weekend when I whip up a special blend of HK mixes in what's guaranteed to be a mid-winter sonic meltdown. I'm bringin' the island heat with the latest from RihannaNelly and Justin Timberlake. Plus custom remixes on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - "Thriftshop", Calvin Harris f/Florence Welch - "Sweet Nothing", Britt Nicole's pop diddy - "Gold" and my latest reworking on Nicki Minaj - "Va Va Voom". You'll have just enough time to come up for air and re-hydration before getting dizzy from new ear-gasim's on Ke$haThe ScriptNeon TreesSwedish House Mafia and David Guetta.

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