#ElementsNYC Festival (BangOn!NYC) Playlist - Liquid Stranger, Eduardo Castillo, Autograf, Minnesota, and more

The Elements Festival in NYC was a great party with amazing DJ and production talent. The festival was set in industrial Brooklyn among what felt like a construction site and rock quarry. It was a truly unique music and art experience - the scenery set it apart and the music took it to amazing levels of dance and energy. Check out this playlist of DJs who performed. 

My favorites were Liquid Stranger (bass, dubstep) and Eduardo Castillo (deep house). I missed Autograf (deep, tropical house) but I've heard he's really good live - wish I could seen him.

In Honor of Jon Horvath, Fort Knox Five founder - 20 Minutes of F.U.N.K.

Jon Horvath, founder or Fort Knox Recordings and funk band/production/DJ group Fort Knox Five passed away today. I had the honor of meeting Jon before a few Fort Knox Five sets in DC and NYC. He brought insane energy to Fort Knox Five sets and recordings, and you couldn't miss his electric hair fro, which became a visual signature for the duo. I didn't know Jon personally, but I want to thank him - Fort Knox Five showed me how to incorporate funk into my mixes, and made me appreciate the past, present and future funk and the joy it brings. FUNK is joy, and Fort Knox Five and Jon embodied that joy.

Thank you Jon - you FUNKED THE WORLD HARD. I'll always share your jams, they'll always be part of my sets. You'll be missed. In honor of Jon - here's one of my favorite Fort Knox Five mixes:

Ghost Order - Hollows EP

Ghost Order is an artist based in Britain, currently remixing and designing beautiful downtempo melodies. I love tracks that have driving percussion that makes your head nod with very chill melodies and layers. I stumbled across an older Ghost Order album called Hollows (EP). The title track is my favorite, with light piano over percussion and reverberating bass. It's a great straight forward song - Hollows - that I can listen to over and over again.
