The producer’s original productions are available on Soundcloud too. If your soundcloud stream wasn’t already filled with his remixes, we recommend digging through this mass upload.
HVNS is just twenty-effing-two years old but he’s already producing high quality trap/dubstep/jpop music under CLUBSODA. If you haven’t watched or heard of CLUBSODA (not to be confused with the drink), it’s a dynamic-duo between HVNS and his pop star vocalist MOTSU. HVNS also produced a sort of web documentary that you should all catch on the CLUBSODA YouTube. As we watch the production value of the video and music, we’re amazed at how young these gifted producers come these days. It may be that as music production becomes increasingly digital, the barriers to entry diminish.
Remember that time when we said Trance Blossom and DJ AMAYA were probably working on something together? Right. It happened. This remix is the love child of their intercourse. It’s got TB kicks and AMAYA snares; and the synths have mixed instrumentality stemming from the two producers.

Like many of his remixes, his instruments fill the full eq band so be delicate when layering in samples of your own. Also like his other DJ AMAYA tracks, this remix is easy to mix in and out of with a clean 32 + 32 beat intro and outro. The track is available for download in both mp3 and wav on his website.
Every now and then you like to spin asian pop that isn’t k-pop, right?
For many of us, it’s approaching that time of the year when we prepare for the Anime Convention Circuit. As any self-respecting Anime Convention DJ will have you know: you need your anime soundtracks– especially when the anime soundtracks come from Kpop groups. For today’s post we’ve included a double-shot of two, dj-friendly, ending tracks from the Blue Exorcist anime. Continue reading
