Nick Monaco is now of the brightest stars in the entire Wolf & Lamb constellation. The San Fran kid’s evolution from DirtyBird associate to Soul Clap secret weapon to fully fledged Crew Love member has been an interesting one t say the least: few if any people make music as sexually libidinous, as turbo charged with funk or as darn right original as this guy, and his new EP Private Practice – which comes as a taster ahead of his debut album Mating Call in September - continues in that good tradition.
Born Darianna Mayer, Darelectric caught the music bug early on in life. Since then, the Caracas native has made it a mission to share her passion with others. Back in Venezuela, Darelectric formed the Karne Frezka collective with a few friends before relocating to NYC where she lends her talent to the likes of Massive Groove NYC and Globalmixx Radio. Whether in the studio or on the dancefloor, her dedicated approach and wicked taste has captured audiences from her hometown to NYC and beyond. The same can be said for our latest mix of the week.
As much as we love our recent podcast and mix submissions that dabble in, shall we say, darker and more techno-oriented selections, we're equally pleased when something different comes our way. This week, DJ/producer/model extraordinaire Cat King delivers an upbeat and enticing mix, blending artists you've definitely heard of and those you'll soon come to love. Here, the multi-talented Brooklyn-based artist kicks off with the charming chanteuse Lana Del Rey's "Young And Beautiful" before suddenly transitioning into a remix of Nicolas Jaar's "And I Say." The surprises don't stop there. Also sprinkled in are remixes of Aluna George, Iggy Azalea, The Fugees, Diplo and Frank Ocean.
