leave a comment »

Here’s the first post in what I hope will be a weekly series, previewing the mix for Saturday night’s Weekend Energy. This week’s show is wild, so wild it’s like fending off an Amazonian ocelot ambush with a squeaker horn and a garbage can lid… in your ears. Sounds promising, right? 🙂



Flash Republic – Twister (Leo Cuenca Old School Remix) – See “Discovery” below.

Camaro Kids – Heat Wave 88 (Original Mix) – From their awesome self-titled EP

Basement Freaks – Something Freaky (Extended Mix) –  Has a freaky, old school video.

Doctor P – Sweet Shop (Friction vs. Camo & Krooked Remix) – Incredible DnB remix.
