Dustin Kinney is a passionate, opinionated house DJ and writer in Austin, TX. His friends will tell you he hates everything, but it’s a LIE! Don’t believe them.
I told you to wait for the remixes didn't I? Dirt Crew really took the perfect amount of time to let Boxed Out simmer. Since my last review, my friends and I have all made proper use of multiple...
I've long since abandoned any debates regarding the sync button vs. beatmatching because it's utterly pointless. However, if there's any point that can safely be hammered home and which everyone (except idiots) can agree on it's this: you...
Hype is an interesting thing. I'm engaged in a never ending battle with it where my allegiance is always shifting. So much of the music industry is based on hype and my gut reaction is to give whatever is...
One of things I love about being a DJ is the constant evolution of my sound. It's not something I consciously look to do as part of some strategy because I'll always be true to myself. However, depending on...
Whatever part of this industry you're in, if you take this shit with the slightest degree of seriousness, you're a masochist. We fight and claw our ways through the highs and lows year after year because we love it,...
There is no denying the therapeutic capabilities embedded in good music. When I'm in the middle of a DJ set and I'm in the zone, it's like I'm in my own little world and the negative energy is being...
Hypocritical stars are calling out the EDM apocalypse and claiming all new dance music is a bummer. Is it true? Maybe if you live in a freakin' bubble. The underground is chugging along just fine for those willing to...
Queen crusher Colette lets her public display of affection burn slowly with a fresh round of remixes of "Crush", originally released a few months ago on her Candy Talk label. Detroit roomies Hugh Cleal and Bryan Jones bring the party...
This is just one great Chris Minus EP released in April, but without question the easiest to get excited about. The man from Denmark understands how to create one serious groove. Chez Damier talked about creating music with Ron Trent...
Hallelujah - it's a release that is based around actual melodies rather than sampling! Andre Bonsor is no stranger to the world of House Music, being a member of Schmoov! and also having worked with acts like Lovebirds and...
The coolest thing about social media is being able to connect with people in ways that, 10 years ago you would have never been able to. Case in point: Corduroy Mavericks release their first EP on Drop Music. I...
Coyote Cuts has brought forth more fire with their third volume of The Pack. You'll find a wide range here from seriously soulful and deep, to tracky disco, to some funkity funknastyness. This is a wolf pack I want...
Acid Andee is a new name to keep your eyes on. He released a track on the Who's Got Him? EP called "Callao" that really grabbed my attention a month or so back. This is his 2nd full length...
You can't hold me back. I became a DJ. This is Anhanguera's big comeback in the face of a controlling ex, fresh with remixes from Sneak, Busy from Real Time Hand Motion, Luca Marano and Gramophonedzie. The lyrics are...
I've only heard five tracks from Kid Enigma and I already have a massive amount of respect for him. It's because he's not afraid to be honest and bare his soul in his music. It's a quality that can...
Muzik 4 Tomorrow is a new sister label of Sole Channel music. Enough said right? I think I can say a bit more. B. Original and Damir Pushkar at the helm, my fellow Austinite J.A.M.O.N. slangin' rhymes and melodies,...
