I have to admit that since moving to Los Angeles sixteen months ago, my tastes have shifted a bit. No longer do I hear four-to-floor beats or festival tracks and get amped. The club bangers produced just aren’t interesting to me now. Far more interesting is the electro rock sounds that many bands are featuring with a combination of instrumentals and electronica. In this edition of The Hot Six, I present to you my favorite electro rock track, as well as some hot tracks infused with Middle Eastern beats. I’ve also included a dope bhangra/hip-hop mix. Of course, the bhangra/hip-hop mashups have been a part of popular culture since Jay-Z and Panjabi MC debuted “Beware of the Boys” in 2003. But, this thirty-minute mix that I’ve featured below is the best bhangra and hip-hop mashup mix that I’ve heard in a while.
