RS034 finds Rad Summer working with Shy Guy Says on the producer’s The Hellephant EP!
Prolific producer Shy Guy Says makes his Rad Summer debut with the 4 track bass release the Hellephant. The project opens with the titular track, a dark and heavy trap anthem, and then rounds out with 3 stellar drum-n-bass cuts. If you’ve been watching Shy Guy Says’s evolution from glitch-hop to dubstep and beyond, The Hellephant is the next stage in his bass evolution. FEAR THE HELLEPHANT!
SHY GUY SAYS is an electronic music producer and performer straight from the Mushroom Kingdom, an 8bit villain ready to destroy any party at any time and somehow leave his victims wanting more. His eclectic, yet upbeat and danceable sound can best be described as a mixture of Hip Hop, Glitch Hop, Electro, Down-tempo, Dubstep, Trap, Drum Step, and Drum N Bass. It’s know for its heavy rhythmic swagger, yet at the same time can be lush and loaded with dirty synth bass sounds, warm ambiance, and 8-bit glitches.
Lemi Vice and Action Jackson keep it 100 with three new free twerk remixes!
After a string of hot remixes this summer, Lemi Vice and Action Jackson finally release a new FreEP featuring three new twerk remixes. Keep It 100 Vol. 1 is comprised of 100 BPM reworkings of the Ludacris’s “Move Bitch”, Clipse’s “What Happened To That Boy”, and Kanye’s “New Slaves”. To download the release, please like the Rad Summer Facebook page!
Over the past decade, Lemi Vice has established himself as respected musician throughout the Midwest. Never one to settle into a single style of music, Lemi instead chooses to draw from his experiences of “long nights in dark clubs, and the science fiction movies” of his youth. This allows the young producer to transition between nearly every genre and progression in bass music. In the past 3 years that Lemi has been DJing publicly, he has performed alongside the likes of Figure, Zebo, Dethface, Flufftronix, Charlie Glitch, Maddjazz, and many others. For bass junkies around the world, Lemi is their new vice.
Indianapolis born and raised, Action Jackson has quickly established himself as one of the premier DJs in the Midwest, playing well over 200 shows in 2012. Specializing in genre bending mixes that span multiple styles of music, he is equally comfortable spinning hip-hop, house, dubstep, moombahton, indie rock, and everything in between. 2011 found Action linking with emcee Oreo Jones for their collaboration “Black Fabio”, a parody of the famous model from the 80′s. In short, there’s not a crowd or party that he can’t rock including large festivals such as Forecastle, Identity Festival, and The Indianapolis 500, the largest single day sporting event in the world.

Sons of Satin’s Rad Summer debut Fresh Booty Drops features a pair of indie dance tracks that are heavily influenced by the jackin’ sounds of tech house.
Sons of Satin started out as a side project by Rusty B (All Good Funk Alliance) to work on some “future” music with some local producer friends while his partner was away at Burning Man, the resulting songs came out better than expected so he decided to release them to world.
Alan Cormode, better known as Kinrade, hails from the UK’s musical hotspot of Manchester. With a strong focus on music with heart & soul, his humble productions show depth and thought.After starting out, playing records in the early 90ís, it wasn’t until 2009 when Kinrade won DJ Magazines double whammy. Winning the publications Raw Talent for both DJ mix & production in consecutive months, the only artist to ever do this.For many artists these days, production is used as a tool to spread their name and bag themselves DJ gigs. For Kinrade, production is the heart of his musical output and by making a conscious decision to follow the studio path, it really does show.After gaining the DJ accolades, this opened doors for the up & coming producer. Whether it be down tempo or not, the vibe throbs from the beating heart.
Texas trap kings TimeSquared keep twerking with their new release “Do You Wanna Throw Your Pants?”!
TimeSquared returns with another 2 track release for Rad Summer. RS032, Do You Wanna Throw Your Pants? is a portmanteau of the two songs “DOUWANNA” and “Gwon Tro Ya Pantz Up”. “DOUWANNA” is a skillfully executed straight forward twerk anthem with big bass and snappy 808 snares. “Gwon Tro Ya Pantz Up” breaks into a crunchy take on twerk. TimeSquared’s new release is bound to make booties shake!
We are an up and coming Texas based production duo recently exploring new ideas in trap music. We incorporate live guitar-playing into our productions along with deep subs, gritty tones and unique melodies. The TimeSquared sound is all about not having any restrictions and creating works that stay true to us. We continue to push the boundaries of electronic music with our unconventional approach to song writing. We feel that sometimes music now days is viewed far too seriously so we like to mix it up with our humorous personalities. Our song, Get a Mop, is also a call to action for everyone to, in fact, get a mop. Mop awareness is important to us because dance floors get slippery when wet and nobody should be getting injured whilst twerking. We do it for the chauncy!
