It seems like everybody’s getting’ into the music biz these days. The latest company to jump in the groove is Marriott Hotels. I know your probably saying to yourself… “What the **** does a hotel chain have to do with music?” Apparently Marriott has gotten in bed with Universal Music Group for what they’re calling a “first-of-its-kind” partnership. Some of Universal's biggest stars will perform at their hotels plus other incentives. This new union kicks off next week when Jessie J will perform at a Marriott Hotel in London.

I’ll be kicking tracks off the hook all weekend long! Get ready for…..Tove Lo, Ed Sheeran, Andy Grammer, Kelly Clarkson, Rachel Platten, MKTO, Fall Out Boy, Walk The Moon, OMI and others like you've never heard them before! 

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

Last month it was Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood music video with her besties. Now Madonna drops the B**** I’m Madonna video with Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora, Chris Rock and more. This has been happening since music videos came into existence. Another recent example…Tom Hanks had more camera time than Carly Rae Jepsen in her video. Scarlet Johansson turned it out for Justin Timberlake and Ben Stiller showed up in a P Diddy joint. What’s your fave music video with a killer cameo? My hands down favorite celeb in a music video (it is a serious must see)….wait for it.…Christopher Walken in Fat Boy Slim’s Weapon Of Choice.

I'll be pulling out all my weapons of choice this weekend with EXCLUSIVE HK remixes on Sia, Rachel Platten, Adam Lambert, Calvin Harris, Jason Derulo, Walk The Moon, MKTO and so much more!.

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

Is it me or does it seem like singles are being released at lightning speed lately? Proof of that is the recent rumor over what Taylor Swift’s next single off her mondo selling album 1989 will be. Next single, really??? Bad Blood has barely dropped. Taylor’s reaction: “I don’t even know what the next single is yet !! Let’s all take deep breaths in and out and watch Bad Blood again on Vevo”. She must be thinking S*** it took me forever to make that video and they want another one already? Taylor’s first four tracks from 1989 are all currently charting in the top 40. Not long ago a label would wait for a song to fall off the chart before releasing the next one. A great album would provide singles for what seemed like years. Giving the artist a break to tour, write new music, work their magic in the studio for their next album or have a life. Now we want our beats fast and furious. Today labels are trying to make a buck in a digital landscape and artists are under more pressure than ever to deliver the hits at rapid fire speed! 

I'll be mixing and remixing the hits with rapid speed and dexterity this weekend in my EXCLUSIVE HK sets! Adam Lambert, Walk The Moon, The Police, David Guetta, Ariana Grande, Sia and even the Biebs all get a sonic reworking. Plus new tracks from OMI, Zedd, Major Lazer, Jeremih, Flo Rida and Avicii.

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

The first thing that hit me about Rachel Platten is her contagious energy, wicked good humor and ability to make you feel like a lifelong friend in two minutes. You may have just been introduced to Rachel via her Columbia Records debut Fight Song but she has been writing songs and pounding the music biz pavement for ten years with a dream that she refused to give up on. From moving to NYC, finding bands on Craigslist to perform with, temping during the day, gigging until 4am and the daily lugging of an 80-pound keyboard to her 5th floor walk-up she’s certainly had her share of musical dues paying. Rachel said… “I felt crazy sometimes that I still believed in myself when there were no signs that I should”. Well the signs are glaring now and all that fighting is paying off. This week I talk with Rachel about comic radio run ins, the meaning behind her hit single and more!

I’ve also got more beats, more bangers and more of your fave hits like you've never heard them before! Get ready for custom HK remixes on Walk The Moon, Sia, Jason Derulo, Ellie Goulding, Nick Jonas, Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, Tove Lo, Adam Lambert, Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, OMI and that’s just gettin’ the party started.

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