These dudes are killlliiiing it right now. Just yesterday the San Francisco natives, Matrixxman and Vin Sol released their newest remix, an unstoppable edit of Inner City's Good Life. I dare you to throw this on and not smile, at least a little bit. Huge nostalgic house vibes popping out on every turn with this one, taking an oldie and spinning and twisting it in to something new and fresh, yet keeping those 90's roller rink vibes in tact. Fucking way too good...
If you heard their truly off the fucking chain XLR8R mix, it's probably safe to assume you about lost it when hearing this.....a bootleg remix of Blackstreet's already classic, No Diggity. Bondax have been on fire this year, gathering momentum throughout their what seems like never ending tour schedule and putting out a string of game changing originals and remixes. And just when I was starting to think I'd never get a copy of my own, they go and put this one up for free download via Soundcloud. Listen, stream, and download below...
When a new Eats Everything mix surfaces, you stop what you're doing, get out the pen and paper, and get ready to take some fucking notes.....because each one is outstanding. Each mix this guy puts together is a history lesson through house, a who's who of the best, a twisty windy road through how a mix and live set should be, a journey. Eats just time and time again, proves why he's so quickly rose in the ranks to becoming one of the best in the world. Outstanding live mix from his last appearance at Smart Bar in Chicago below...
I mean, you already know, but I mean SHIT it's heeeere. The next installment of 'You're Welcome' is upon us, and it's lookin to be a big'n. I'm very happy, and truly honored to host and throw such a fun one with a line up that includes both little miss J.Phlip and the 5kin & Bone5 badman formally known as, Matrixxman, at one of my favorite clubs in the city, Harlot.
J.Phlip has been an almost weekly regular on Value Meal since day one, dropping bomb after fucking bomb on yer momz (no, for real though) and holding it down female style for the sausage fest San Francisco bassline league leaders, Dirtybird. She soon packed her bags, gave a hug, and uprooted to Berlin not but two years ago, only to further globally dominate and create a name that's taken the quick trip to the top. I mean, all her unmeasurable talent aside, who doesn't love a cute sexy little midwestern girl dropping bass crushing, ghettofide booty tech? No one. That's who. Well I've had the pleasure of getting to know and play along side her a few times in the past, even brought her to Durango to play last years 'Sloppy Seconds.' If you haven't seen her yet, believe when I say you're in for one hell of a treat.
Then on the other half of the coin, we got mr. Charlie Duff, or to you and me known muuuch better as Matrixxman. This dude's on fire right now, punching through any genre barrier put in his way. You heard this? Or this, or this, or this? Mark my words, this time next year, he'll be sharing the bill in all caps with the best of the best. No joke. Until then, we get to see him before his head swells, right here in San Francisco ;)
Oh, and guess who's on opening duties....ME. Lookin forward to pop lock and droppin it with you all. And let's not forget about free jello shots. That's right, FREE. FUCKING. JELLO. SHOTS. (from 11:32 - 12:32).
So so so so so so happy about this night. Can not wait to see all those smiles and sexy little bodies on the dance floor. Oh and while you're pre-gaming, putting your face on and slurping down those last minute red bull vodkas tomorrow night, throw this ish on below. With these two, you can't get enough.

YOU'RE WELCOME :):):):)
I'm pretty positive Brenmar is half the reason all the 90's remixes have been circulating, and popular, and remixed, and then remixed again......because his are consistently so fuckin good. This one, a remix of Brownstone's If You Love Me is a throwback shooting you riiiight back to when under your left eye was painted, flannel shirt's tied around your waist, rockin Reebok pumps. Don't sleep, heater alert..
It's no secret how big of a fan I am of label trend setter, Body High. Just about everything released from the LA based label is fire, plain and simple. Myrryrs latest EP was no exception. But what I was really interested in, was his remix of Drake and Ricky Rozay's between the sheets anthem, Diced Pineapples. The thing's got all of the ingredients I look for a in a dance floor destroyer....bass, rhythm, originality, impeccable production, sex, and absolute originality. Take a listen to the first sound on this bonus EP of his, it's the remix at hand. Fuckin outstanding.
$leepyhead is known for his spacy, melodic, pillow talk driven broken beats. But over the years his sound has moved forward, pushing in to the world of House. Well all three of these were uploaded just a couple weeks ago, and it looks like we're all in for something special. Each is a bouncy, four four, house track, seemingly destined for the dance floor. Follow this guy, as good things are no doubt in his near future..
So, I'm unofficially claiming that everything Maya Jane Coles touches, does in fact turn to gold. If you can tell me of anything she's completed that isn't pure brilliance please, tell me, because she's beginning to even set the bar too high. But who am I am to complain, because with this newest piece of work from her, a remix of The XX's Fiction, we're left with four minutes of heaven. If I could right now pick one song to throw on repeat, for the next whenever, it'd be this one. It's a simple, yet undeniably complex twist on the already stunning original. Absolutely in love with this woman's style, it's really no surprise to see how far she's come..
The main man, the bad man, my brotha from anotha motha, Mr Peter Robot has been at it for a minute now. Patiently curating, writing, and composing beat after beat in the small town of Durango, CO, this guy's been putting together what's now a serious arsenal of crunched up broken beat, glitch hop, trip hop, and dubstep. And yeah, this may not be the type of shit you normally see on Value Meal, but I made an exception because of how fuckin good it is (and he's a pretty damn good friend of mine). Anyway, he just let loose a couple oldies, and as if he just made them yesterday, they're pushing the limits of what we hear today. I'm just sitting, idly waiting for the Robot to get picked up and thrown on tour, inevitably headlining the next Sonic Bloom or some shit. Peter Robot, you son of a bitch, well done my man. Well done.
Fuck. When these dudes let loose any kind of new material, you know to put that game face on and try and keep up. They really don't fuck around. And this one's no exception, a mix absolutely crushing that UK bass. It's a sound that only a few have been successfully pushing forward with, using elements of UK funky, garage, and house Kry Wolf manage to create this sub pumping, dance floor crushing dance music at it's finest. Check their newest mix below, one for BBC's 1Xtra Daily Dose. Monday? Feels like Friday...
STUPID good mixtape out from the Bay Area's Queen of all things bass, Ana Sia. The first time I saw this girl live, about three years ago, I didn't really know anything about her...what her style was, taste, background....but I was asked to provide the opening set, and knew this was gonna be a big night no matter what, so I signed on. Well fuck. Me. She dished out one of the best hour and half of music I've just about ever heard. Mixing in dubstep, tribal house, bass, glitch, and garage, in a way that was swift and quick, but meticulous beyond belief. Fast forward to now, and she's just given mix duties to the next in line of MIXED BY, and believe me when I say, this thing destroys. Starting off with a relentless new one from Jan Driver, moving in to Squarehead's beautiful version of Never Leave You and on to Jean Nipon's slammin Comin At You. And that's just in the first ten minutes. In love with this thing...listen and download below.
