One of the most respected DJs in the DMV, DJ Kidd Marvel, has teamed up with up and coming artist Goldlink, to release one of the most unique mixes out this year. The sound of the mix has gone by many names including love trap, dream rap, and chillwave, just to name a few, but Kidd Marvel and his homie Goldlink call it by the name Future Bounce. You’ve probably heard this type of music from the likes of JSMN, Ta-Ku, Disclosure, or any Soulection artist, but Goldlink seems to have a way of putting his own spin on it all. No matter what you call it, Kidd Marvel rips this Do Androids Dance hosted mix, and will be killing the game all week out at SXSW with Goldlink at his side.

The legendary ENFERNO is at it again with another live remix video.

If hearing the remix wasn’t mind blowing enough, in his live remix video, ENFERNO goes absolutely nuts on the turntables, Maschine, and keyboard while making it all look like a breeze. This isn’t the first release like this from him but in my opinion this is easily one of his best. Leave your comments below!
