I woke up Autograf‘s Mikul and Louis from a nap when I met then at the hotel. In fact they asked for another quick 15 minutes of sleep before we chatted.
Chicago indie dance band Autograf is three guys: Mikul Wing, Louis Kha and Jake Carpenter. Autograf started as an art collective modeled after Andy Warhol‘s legendary New York Factory scene. While working on art installations, Autograf made a few bootleg remixes (including 50 Cent, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and the Temptations) to fuel parties at their Future Factory space. These remixes became incredibly popular and soon offical remixes followed which eventually led to Autograf releasing original material.
Louis and Mikul were still groggy and disoriented when I woke them up the second time, but we had a great chat. How did an art collective become a dance act? What does the band mean when they tell each other to “bask like a lizard?” We start with the most important question: If Autograf is three guys, and Louis and Mikul get the two beds in the Autograf hotel room, where does the third man sleep? Listen to our chat.

Here’s the extended version of my hang session with Autograf so you can hear all the stuff that won’t fit into radio length. Listen!
Los Angeles DJ/Producer Amika Akaya, who has just played out in our very own Vancouver a couple weeks ago at “Fox Cabaret” & “Biltmore Cabaret,” just came out with a new tropical house trap track called “LIT.” You can listen to the rad tune here and get your free download on soundcloud.
Australia teams up with America on this one as DC up-and-comer Eau Claire gives the deep(ish) house remix treatment to Husky’s first single off his new album ‘Electric’. A bit more jackin grooves and low end-focused than her other remixes, this one’s for the dancefloor.

One of our Aussie favorites, Hayden James goes into deep house meets pop territory with this catchy tune on Future Classic’s upcoming Teen Idols compilation. Bound to be a smash.
Birmingham’s Low Steppa is one of the staple figures of the resurgent UK bass/garage sound that is so ubiquitous right now. Today he dropped Sometimes, a piano-laden two step groove with a classic soul diva sample. Cop it for free and get to struttin.
It’s that time of the year again, when copious amounts of booze and excess exposure to the sun make catching the feels a weekly activity. Fortunately for us, Alex (from Killing Time) has a new jam that will make your emotional hangovers bearable, and maybe even enjoyable. So send your current boo the purple heart emoji and remember that somewhere out there, Drake has it 10x worse.
