Simon Shackleton, the man behind Elite Force, is dropping a stellar new, exlusive mix on all you Soupaholics, and we're super stoked to have it! Make sure to give this a deep, thorough listen . . . you'll be glad you did! Check it . . .
Simon Shackleton has been a Force to be reckoned with in Electronic Music over the past 25 years. He cut his teeth in the original acid house era when he performed in bands with Thom Yorke (Radiohead), went on to provide soundtracks from Hollywood blockbusters (The Matrix, Charlie's Angels) under his Lunatic Calm guise and then forged his own way with his Fused & Bruised label, home to his output as Elite Force for several years.
After stints on Moonshine and City of Angels in the US and Whole9Yards in the UK, he founded U&A Recordings back in 2006 as a vehicle for his own music, including his Zodiac Cartel productions. More recently, he has diversified with new imprint Stereophoenix, and recording under his real name has been responsible for a whole host of deeper, euphoric, techy productions. He also founded The One Series, a bespoke series of events featuring One DJ, One Room, All Night, at which he's played a number of 6, 7 and 8-hour sets.
A Burning Man regular, Simon has also played many of the world's biggest festivals, including Coachella, Glastonbury, Future Music Festival, Shambhala, Rainbow Serpent, Kazantip and many more. This exclusive one-hour mix was compiled during a recent trip to Beijing, China.

Episode 121 of Beat Soup is coming from North County San Diego, from the one we know as Deep Jesus. One of the OG's of the Jungle turned Desert Hearts crew, the sounds that come from Deep Jesus have always been top notch yet somehow continue getting better and better.
We would recommend doing what you need to do, just shy of actually killing someone, to get your ass to the next Desert Hearts gathering. It's coming right up at the end of April, and makes for the perfect warm up for Lightning In A Bottle.
Sit back, take off your pants and let your Monday get a whole lot better . . .
Greetings Souper Stars, this week our mix is coming from DJ/Producer, and UK underground legend, Pete Bones. Having started out playing in bands in the 80's, he soon found electronic music and has spent the past 20 years behind the decks. We're stoked to have him on board this week!
Check out more of Pete's music on his soundcloud page & give him a virtual high-five on his Facebook page. If you're in LA on April 5th, Pete and Grant Plant will be throwing down an old school vinyl set for their first time in 10 years in Hollywood!
Max Magee, AKA Fritz Carlton, is a 21 year-old American underground House music producer who currently resides in the musically eclectic city of San Francisco. Originally hailing from Seattle, Fritz is now deeply entrenched within the Bay Area electronic music scene in both live performance and his own music. He also produces under the alias Solicitors, a duo comprising of himself & Jayko, a fellow Bay Area producer. Fritz draws clear influence from both the refined, dark Tech and Booty Bass sounds of the Bay Area and the smooth SoCal vibes of Los Angeles, where he first heard delved into electronic music and eventually House while attending college as a percussion major. 2013 saw a very significant spike in Fritz’s dedication towards all things House - with an EP coming soon on Perfect Driver Music and another in the near future with Grooverdose, 2014 is sure to be a solid year for this cat.
Check him out on Facebook and Twitter @fritzcarltonSF.

Born and raised in a small suburban town in Connecticut, Lux Groove developed a strong passion for music from a very young age. During his early teenage years he got his first set of turntables and started to teach himself to DJ. Heavily influenced by DJ's such as Jazzy Jeff, A-trak, Craze and Qbert, he quickly become engulfed in the turntablism scene, doing showcase performances and entering local dj battles as well as the DMC's.
Lux Groove began to get into house music and quickly wanted to be more than just a dj, which led him to start producing music. After a short period of time Lux Groove produced his first EP called "From The Back," which is now signed to Worthy's Anabatic record label. Lux Groove is sure to continue his success, not only with production but also djing, putting to use his heavy turntablism background mixed in with his style of bass house music, which is sure to rock any crowd. Expect to hear much more coming from this prolific producer and skilled DJ!

Corey Wilcox, aka DJ Eschaton, is one of the old schoolers holding it down for the house and techno heads in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Well, someone's gotta.
DJing for the better part of 20 years, Cory's been part of Collective Intelligence 614 since 1996, throwing events that revolve around both music and art, and keeping hope alive in the AZ. We managed to get our hands on an exclusive recording of Eschaton playing live at a recent event in his neck of the woods, and I'm pretty sure you're gonna love it like Saynt loves a Corona. 'Nuff said.
Beat Soup is alive and well on Facebook, so come by and give us a high five. We love high fives and we're really good at them. In fact, we're so good a high fives that we can do them single handedly.
From the chilly land of Buffalo, NY, comes the DJ Duo Eyes Everywhere. With forthcoming releases on Fool's Gold Records, Perfect Driver Music and our homie Worthy's own Anabatic, these boys have tracks being played by Diplo and Claude VonStroke. We're stoked to be able to feature them here on Beat Soup and are looking forward to their impending world domination.
Brian and Kyle aren't new to the scene, but their take is. Combining elements of house, techno, progressive and R&B has been an idea several years in the making. Forthcoming on Fool's Gold, Anabatic and Perfect Driver Music, the future will be as refreshing as the Spring they are releasing in.
This is music born of the frozen banks and grey skies; the story of two Great Lakes. Industrial promises turned hopeful and covered in the cold blanket of Winter inspire the melodies, rhythms and walking baselines between the bars of every track.
Keep your eyes on these boys, as their eyes are on you.
