Born and raised in Brooklyn, DJ/producer Jimmy Maheras discovered his passion for electronic music in the late '90s. Using legendary NYC clubs as his own musical playground, Maheras credits those endless gritty nights of beats and bass for laying down the foundation of his career.
Now based in LA, his penchant for various genres has allowed Maheras to cater to everyone from soulful house devotees to dark techno enthusiasts while scoring gigs and residencies at some of the most lauded clubs on the West Coast including Vanguard, Culprit's Standard rooftop parties and Avalon Hollywood. In addition to releasing original productions on Crosstown Rebels sub-label, Rebellion, Stranjjur, Riff Raff, and Supernature, his love for sharing music with others eventually led to launching Plastic Love along with fellow DJ Bas in 2010. Fusing their love for electronic, Bas and Maheras continually work to bring forth and share the finest talent in electronic through their beloved party series while also showcasing artists on their weekly radio shows and podcasts.
Given his talent, it comes as no surprise that Maheras also doubles as an A&R agent for the revered Culprit LA, lending his musical talent and critical ears to discover the latest game-changing tracks and the artists behind them. Those previously unfamiliar with Maheras' style will easily gain a sense of appreciation for his work in our latest mix of the week. The hour-long gem kicks off with San Laurentino's "Dreamers and Wanderers" (Let's Play House) followed by a Suonho remix of Caribou's "Sun" before transitioning into darker tracks such as Jacques Greene's "Tell Me" (Lucky Me) and Four Tet's "Lion" before lightening the mood and closing with Jacques Renault, Isolee and Dillon.
Whatever style of electronic you normally prefer, you're bound to lose yourself somewhere in this rich selection of tracks and, if you're like us, you'll wish this musical journey lasted even longer.
