Though the boat party headlines are taken up by Holy Ship, Groove Cruise and now Mad Decent, in NYC, we have Bounce Boat, that may not be as long a voyage, but for a great night at sea, it goes above & beyond the call of duty. Bounce Boat will be hitting the high seas on its traditional luxury liner, Hornblower Infinity with an increased capacity of 1,200 people. The Hornblower Infinity is one of the most impressive boats on the Hudson: equipped with a state-of-the-art sound system, a fully sound-integrated LED light system, and spacious facilities on all three floors and the Skydeck.
On the 4th, the Campus DJ tour will be boarding the ship, as they attempt to find the best DJ on your college campus. They have brought along The Chainsmokers as the guest headliner to play alongside Sean Glass, Goshfather & Jinco and potentially you (if you are a DJ in college). Riding the #Selfie craze to a rather unexpected level stardom in the pop realm, The Chainsmokers are on the tip of everybody’s tongue, from Access Hollywood to Ryan Seacrest. Chipotle will be providing food aboard the ship, which begins boarding at 6:30, departs at 8pm from Pier 40 and returns at midnight. Grab your tickets here.

King Deco is going to be a star. This Duke grad and pop newcomer has a penchant for invoking Cleopatra, and one of the most captivating, mellifluous voices you’ll hear from anyone without a major label deal (or maybe even with). Given the constant routine and monotony that pervades pop music, it’s enlivening to hear and see an artist whose sound and aesthetic seems much more reflective of their authentic selves and sensibilities, rather than what is most marketable. “One”, the first single from her upcoming EP, was produced by Felix Snow, and features Deco’s rich, resonant vocals and writing over a seductive beat laden with ambient synths. Tigris is due out this month, and will also include the writing and production of Kinetics & One Love, Ryland Blackinton (of Cobra Starship), and ASTR’s Adam Pallin.

Yep, Kap Slap has graced us with the holy grail, the Margot Robbie (Wolf of Wall Street), the Catalina Wine Mixer of mixes; The Spring Break Mix! The hype all began back in 2012 when Kap Slap released the original Spring Break Mix, which scholars and government officials across the globe are referring to as “the best mix ever.” Unfortunately SoundCloud deleted Kap Slap’s old SoundCloud, but you can still download the original 2012 SB Mix on his Facebook or check it out here. Whether you need something to pump you up in the gym or keep the party going down in Cancun, Kap Slap has you covered with this years Spring Break Mix. Highlight of the mix comes at the end when he mashes “Drunk in Love” with Martin Garrix’s “Animals.”

Taken from the rather subpar remix pack for Laidback Luke, Project 46 and Collin McLoughlin’s “Collide”, the Australian duo known as Karboncopy have clearly the stand out track of the pack (with an honourable mention going to Marc Benjamin’s remix). We all know that, according to this very site, every song Collin McLoughlin is involved in might just go viral and so successfully remixing “Collide” would be no easy task. Karboncopy’s remix hardly resembles the original. They changed the structure of the song and kept the energy high during the break and the bridge before showcasing Collin’s vocals in the build and their fast paced melody in the drop. I might not go as far as to say this version is better than the original but if it isn’t, it’s close.

Pomo has been killing it lately. It seems as though the Canadian’s have been pumping out some seriously dope producers as of late 2013. I’d stay tuned if I were you because these beats are so funky fresh and speaker ready.
