Knock knock who’s there. Just a skeleton dancing to a sunny Sunday soundtrack, without a punchline or a pun. Or a hashtag.
Here are some tracks I’ve been listening to this week whilst running around Hampstead Heath and staring out the window on the C2 bus.
Some free downloads in there for you, too.
Somebody get me A-Trak’s bloody mary hat please! I need it.
Wow. The crew at Hardfest kilt it again with the HARD Summer 2014 trailer. I thought nothing could top last year’s animal party. But, then this strawberry shortcake bro-tastic joyride took over my computer screen.
Plus there’s a special appearance from Doge?! Bring it.
Buy tickets to HARD Summer 2014.

You might have noticed I’m a little obsessed with Disclosure. Always trying to figure out how those younguns came up with a bunch of instant house classics?
This week’s free song, brought to you via King Most, mashes Disclosure’s “When a Fire Starts to Burn” vocal into Tensnake‘s “Mainline” to create “Mainline Fire.”
When a fire starts to burn… right? And it starts to spread. She gonna bring that attitude home.
Oh and that reminds me to remind you: keep your costumes on and go to HARD Day of the Dead this weekend. Tensnake is there! His set time is on Sunday at 6pm on the Discotheque Stage.
Disclosure’s label, PMR, removed the video for “Help Me Lose My Mind” because it depicted drug use, and drugs are bad.
Here is PMR’s official statement from their Tumblr:
“Help Me Lose My Mind” is pretty fitting right now. Except I don’t think I need any help. It’s already somewhere in LA in a mind lost-and-found.
So very looking forward to seeing Disclosure at the Fonda on October 17 and 18 next week. I “accidentally” bought tickets to both nights. Might have to double-down Disclosure.
Here’s a pic from Disclosure’s set at HARD Summer in August.
My work week was already hard. And now my weekend is about to get HARDER.
Because it’s finally HARD Summer 2013 weekend!! Airhorn siren twerk Harlem Shake yes yes yes!
HARD Summer 2013
August 3 and 4, 2013
@ LA State Historic Park
Can’t wait for the Ed Banger Records 10-year anniversary lineup on Sunday. I want to hear Breakbot “Baby I’m Yours” because that is my happy summer song right now.
I’m also extra hyped to see Disclosure on Saturday. These two young brothers from the UK totally broughted it with their album Settle, released earlier this summer.
The lineup is mega. Full details and set times listed below.
p.s. This thing is SOLD OUT.
p.p.s. You can ride the metro to the event for free with your HARD ticket.
Let’s all just watch the teaser video again because it has cute animals in it and it’s Friday.
