Weekend Selector: Take a Hit Get Clipped

What better way to start off the weekend than in the deep end? First up we have this absolute bomb of a track from Maceo Plex's own Ellum Audio "Sleazy Riders Collection" that comes out just in time for Miami. Head over to Beatport to scope the full compilation, the other efforts are definitely worth checking out, my two picks in particular being the Lukatron and Sync Mode trax. If you're in Chicago tonight, Maceo Plex himself is playing alongside our favorite beatsmith all the way from Bristol, Eats Everything, at Spybar, be sure to make it down there if you're not headed over to the Mid for the Bromance tour.

Get loose. Each release on leftroom seems to be bigger than the last. If you're gonna be in Miami next week, wednesday has a bunch of absolutely ridiculous parties (more on that in our official guide) but Culprit vs Leftroom is definitely one of our picks. The lineup ranges from bristol bass-ers Waifs & Strays to Lee Foss, Laura Jones, Droog, Inxec, Jozif, and the man behind this next track, Gavin Herlihy... Yeah, you could say "stacked."

Huxley is a dude I've really been getting into more and more recently. This track in particular is an all time effort from him full of swinging bass and classic piano stabs.
download: Huxley - Shower Scene

Kris Wadsworth with that bass that 'chu need.

Deetron taking a bit more of a techno approach here, but still sprinkles on his typical amount of swiss melodic magic like only he knows how. This one really takes off in the second half. Like, really takes off.

A massive Casino Times remix of the new Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs single.. pretty much a combination guaranteed to lead to amazingness, this one is deeper than a lot of TEED's stuff but manages to really hit the spot. Can't wait for the full release on April 2nd.

Not So Deep
If you're like me and have been playing the youtube version of this song countless times over the past couple days, this mp3 will come as a godsend.. Full 320 quality. If you're in Chicago tonight and looking for something a little (lot) higher energy than the deep shenanigans at Spybar be sure to check out Brodinski & Gesaffelstein at the Mid.

Acid? Acid.

The name says it all. Rave like its 1992. Out now on Cheap Thrills.
download: Housesquare - Old Gem (Original Mix)

A bit older, this one came out earlier in the spring courtesy of the French teenage prodigy Madeon... sunshine vibes all the way through.

I have to say I'm not usually a fan of mashups at all, but our DC homeboy Sean Johnson sent over his classic rock vs progressive house mashup pack the other day and something about these tracks is really awesome. This Tristan Garner vs The Police's Roxanne is my personal favorite from the bunch, just a ton of energy and fun.. Head over to his facebook page to grab the other two bootlegs for free as well.

An incredible remix package on Joakin's newest single... literally each one is so good I can't pick a favorite.

download: Laidback Luke, Arno Cost, Norman Doray - Trilogy (Swanky Tunes Remix)

download: Autoerotique - Bring That Beat Back (Tiesto Edit)

EROL VS ALEX (boys noize).

Can't wait for this next one to come out on Revealed recordings. No_ID are a group you should get familiar with, the dutch duo has been getting attention by everyone from Hardwell to Axwell recently..
