5. Divide and Conquer – What So Not

What So Not – Facebook | SoundCloud

I’ve been a fan of What So Not since the release of the first EP. My favorite track has always been “Jaguar” but this is now competing for that place. This song is a great lead in I love the feel the beat has and how it breaks itself open starting from the very beginning. Sticking in my head, it sounds like an answering machine that is loading and I really enjoy it.

4. Sweet Memories CID & Kaskade

CID and Kaskade can do no wrong. This duo is highly formidable and is extremely catchy. I like how the vocals waft over the beat, it’s a fantastic song all the way through and the artwork for it is really cool. The last track the duo created was “Us” and for me this track hits new levels and is a noteworthy track I plan on keeping in my music library.

“Believer” brings the vibe of previous work that Major Lazer has released. The combination of that with Showtek’s signature festival sound crowd creates a great collaboration that will definitely keep the dance floors moving.

Love On Me
2.  Love on MeGalantis & Hook N Sling

“Love on Me” has a really fun melodic background and the same classic feel that fans love. This track features a steady paced set of upbeat lyrics that push the song out of your speakers.

1. How Can You Tell When It’s DoneBaauer feat. CZ

Baauer – Facebook | SoundCloud

I don’t think you can tell when it’s done, because for me this song doesn’t end. This track is relentless and when the beat drops, it does off into this mildly addictive baselines that kind of circles through itself.

Mason has been attending concerts since he was 14, originally pop punk and alternative rock. In 2010 he attended his first electronic show, Identity Music Festival featuring: Datsik, Kaskade, Steve Aoki, Rusko and The Crystal Method. That show led him to realizing his desire to work in the industry. After his first interview with Adventure Club in 2013, Mason has gone on to interview many more. Some of his favorite artists are: Calvin Harris, The Chainsmokers, Adventure Club, Porter Robinson, Major Lazer, Skrillex and Nero.
