Irish crooner Niall Horan is going his own direction…well, for a little while anyway. Just when we were thinking One Direction bandmate Harry Styles was going to drop some solo beats, Niall banged his out first. Recently, Horan released his surprise solo single This Town and it’s clear he hasn’t left his acoustic ballad skills behind with 1D. But that’s not all Niall’s been up to, he inked a deal with Capitol Records and he’s written all the songs for his first album. Saying that come November he’ll be locked in a studio recording vocals, guitars and all the rest. Horan hopes to have his debut album out early next summer.

I can’t wait to add a few tricks & treats to Niall’s new track. Plus we’ll get the Halloween weekend festivities started with exclusive HK remixes on Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Twenty One Pilots, Coldplay, Rihanna, the Biebs, and so much more! I'm also gonna revisit Mike Posner's hit and you'll swear YOU took a pill in Ibiza. Plus brand new jams and my PICK TO HIT™. It’s a Boo Bangin’ party jam you don’t wanna miss!

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

Some of our favorite powerhouse artists dropped singles this month as we wait in anxious anticipation for their next albums. It’s been 4 long years since Bruno Mars gave us his sophomore album and man am I ready for #3 . Mars dropped 24K Magic, the first single and title track of his new album slated for release next month and fans couldn’t be happier. Also due for an album are Maroon 5. They just dropped Don’t Wanna Know featuring seven time Grammy award winning artist Kendrick Lamar and it’s already blazing up the charts. Three years have passed since John Legend’s last album warmed our hearts. He recently released the first track Love Me Now from his upcoming album, Darkness and Light, due out later this year.

What do these songs have in common (aside from being great)? They’re all on the list of upcoming exclusive HK remixes to be debuted in this week’s In The Mix with HK™! But wait there’s more… X Ambassadors, Kiiara, The Chainsmokers, Sia, Ellie Goulding and Calvin Harris will all be getting a custom HK tweaking!  Plus Part II of our exclusive interview with Alessia Cara and so much more! It’s an all-out weekend party throw down you don’t wanna miss!

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

Alessia Cara is the 20 year old Canadian singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist who is suddenly everywhere and this weekend she’ll be over “Here” on In The Mix with HK™! Here was the first original song Alessia ever wrote and released. It racked up 50,000 plays in 24 hours and elevated to the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100! Alessia penned that wallflower anthem about a party she attended in her friend’s basement. She says “I felt small and uncomfortable so I asked my mum to come get me”. Glad she stayed long enough to get the whole experience and change her life forever! Alessia tells us a lot more about how that song came to be and her latest track Scars To Your Beautiful.

I can’t wait to share my custom remix of Scars To Your Beautiful. Also coming up in this week’s show are exclusive HK remixes on one of Alessia's previous touring mates Coldplay. Plus Lady Gaga, Twenty One Pilots, Zara Larsson and Ariana Grande. I’ll be bangin’ new beats from Bruno Mars, Bastille and Frenship. And, I plan on crackin' your cranium with a few HK surprises on some old favorites! 

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

Music truly is the universal language! All you have to do is listen to the radio and look at the charts. What's happening now is truly amazing.

Get ready for exclusive HK remixes on the Canadian delegation of Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, The Weekend and Alessia Cara. Reigning from Scotland, Calvin Harris will do it My Way and his London neighbors: Coldplay will bring the Hymn For The Weekend. Cookin’ On 3 Burners and Sia will add their Down Under flava and I’ll be putting my spin on Rihanna’s (the Barbados Princess) smash: Needed Me. Shaggy, our Jamaican feel good buddy, has no worries with his new track That Love and our German friend Zedd is back for part II of our interview and his latest hit Starving. Don't worry! I won’t leave you hungry for more…U.S.A’s gonna represent in full force too! Plus there's this week's PICK TO HIT™ and I'll revisit and re-imagine a throwback classic.

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