5 Essential House Music Sets to Get Your Groove On

Revolutionizing the way house lovers listen to music, websites like SoundCloud and Be.at.TV give music fans access to seemingly unlimited live sets, podcasts, and mixes. Here are some of our favorite sets currently on repeat.

Seth Troxler: Live At Time Warp 2014

When Seth Troxler hits the decks, it’s sure to be righteous. His set at the 20th Anniversary of Time Warp Music Festival in Berlin did not disappoint. A scintillating journey through techno, minimal, and tribal beats, it’s hard to not let your eyes close as your body grooves through the melodies. Did we mention that the ending is brilliant? Seth leaves us with some advice for “these mother*cking DJs” and we couldn’t agree more. Don’t stop-Don’t stop.

Deep Dish: Essential Mix, March 22, 2014

The Deep Dish boys are back together, and to say that we are happy would be the understatement of the year. Dubfire and Sharam parted ways in 2008 to focus on their solo careers, leaving a gaping hole in Deep Dish fans’ hearts, until earlier this year when DeepDish.com suddenly went live with a mysterious countdown leading to speculation of a reunion at Winter Music Conference in Miami. A divine debut, the “Deep Dish Essential Mix 2014” is flawlessly mixed and will have you dancing so hard that it may be hazardous to tracks like Dubfire’s new jam, “Exit,” featuring Miss Kitten. Appropriately titled, this is a mix you’ll have on repeat.

JJ Flores: Hush Hush 3

JJ Flores, a prodigy of Chicago house, is one of the most meticulously skilled producers in the business with over 530 releases according to Discogs. Referred to by many as “the DJ’s DJ,” JJ is widely respected and recognized for his talents by the industry’s best. “Hush Hush 3” is a soulful, sensual hour of jams that bring the heat and make you want to get your groove on… in more ways than one. Seamlessly mixing tracks from the XX, Wild Culture, London Grammar, and the insanely sexy “Heart to Find” by Mat Joe, you will want to take advantage of the free download. This is a personal favorite and one for the permanent playlists.

Nicole Moudaber: Live at Cacao Beach, Bulgaria

Wild-haired tech goddess, Nicole Moudaber, is undoubtedly one of the best female forces in the dance music scene. This high energy set, recorded live at Cacao Beach, will have you shakin’ dat ass from start to finish. Moudaber’s debut album, Believe, was released on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode label in 2013 and quickly became one of our must have albums of the year. Close your eyes, feel the sun on your face, and the electricity of this beach side sunrise set deep in your bones.

Carl Cox: Global 577 (Frankie Knuckles Tribute)

After the recent passing of one of the most influential and revered pioneers of house music, Frankie Knuckles, social media was a buzz with posts paying homage to his greatest tracks with sentiments from so many that he had been a mentor, idol, and dear friend to. The legendary Carl Cox dedicated a special two hour tribute to “The Godfather” that is classic and timeless, serving as a great education for the generation new to house music and an emotional dance down memory lane for those who have gratefully felt his influence for decades.
