It’s a very happy Friday over here at SBB NYC headquarters! Why so cheery on a rainy Spring day may you ask? Easy answer… we have Klean’s latest Squeaky Klean mixtape bumping on our speakers and we can’t get enough of this amazing fourth edition.
Klean starts off strong with a triumphant opening track, showing his diverse musical palette with some smooth indie sing alongs, then glides into some super swanky grooves. We are ecstatic that Klean is sharing with the world the many colors of his sound, and continues to weave together some incredibly fresh and soulful beats for us over in sunny La La land. For your listening pleasure, we present to you Klean’s latest mix:
You can catch Klean spinning live on Thursdays at 31TEN Lounge in Santa Monica. For the latest updates on Klean’s music and upcoming gigs, follow him on Facebook. Contact StopBreatheBump@gmail.com for bookings.
Day dreaming of “faraway places and clear blue waters with no one around” on this foggy Wednesday in NYC. Enjoy this smooth, euphoric track “White Dress” from Set Mo featuring Deutsch Duke. Happy #BumpDay !
Last weekend at Verboten NY, we had one of the sexiest evenings of all time at our favorite Brooklyn dance spot with the dark and dirty Maceo Plex and the groovy musical stylings of Danny Daze. New Yorkers work hard and dance harder, so it was no surprise that the club was packed with beautiful people breaking it down aggressively to the relentless music of the night.
Danny Daze started the show off smoothly and threw down an impeccably paced and emotive set. Maceo Plex took over with his diverse, seductive sounds and played until sunrise. The club was packed from start to finish, a great testament to the well-earned popularity of this legend in the underground dance space.
Head’s feeling like a jungle from the stressful work week? Come dance it allll out this Friday with the SBB squad at Verboten for what is set to be another unforgettable night with progressive house producer Gui Boratto. Reigning from Brazil, Boratto is a genius not only in music production (he is a musician, producer, and composer), but also is a talented architect. He will no doubt be on his top game playing at Verboten, appreciating a venue that is a 10,000 square foot former metal shop in the heart of Williamsburg, featuring two rooms, multiple skylights and futuristic, industrial accents that bring the Verboten aesthetic to life.
We hope to see you all on Friday!
Verboten resident DJ jozif threw down one helluva podcast on Rinse FM this past Sunday, showing the world just how wildly talented he is. We have the pleasure of seeing this London producer in our favorite NY club on the reg, and his grooves always provide the perfect mix of old and new school for any saucy night out on the town. Check out his perfectly paced Podcast – link to the FREE download and full tracklist provided below.
You can catch jozif at Mysterland USA this year — Holy Ground camping anyone?! On Sunday May 24, Verboten Presents Flying Circus will feature jozif alongside Ibiza mainstays The Martinez Brothers, Audiofly, Martin Buttrich, Guti (live), Maayam Nidam, and more.

The Icelandic indie folk quintet Of Monsters and Men is back! Their lovely songs still seem so relevant it’s easy to forget that they haven’t released an LP since their debut album My Head Is An Animal in 2011. This June the band will be sharing their followup album, Beneath The Skin. Lucky for us, we get a taste of what’s to come with the first track off the album, “Crystals”. With lyrics including “Cover your crystal eyes, and feel the tones that tremble down your spine….let your colors bleed and blend with mine,” it’s easy to see that “Crystals” is going to have the same success as OMAM’s previous hits like “Little Talks” and “From Finner” that make people sing with joy like the lip-syncing man in the lyric video.
So the trance King Armin van Buuren‘s popular song “In and Out of Love” featuring Sharon den Adel is kind of a throwback, but the Lost Frequencies remix is definitely worth bringin it back. Belgian producer Felix de Laet, aka Lost Frequencies, is a new favorite – he takes the old (lost frequencies, get it?) and brings them back to life with new, exciting, often tropical-feeling beats. Check out his popular single “Are You With Me” to see what he’s all about, then sit back and relax with his trancey-remix below:
Here at SBB NYC Headquarters we are already asking the question, “Is it Friday yet?”
Why are we feeling this way so prematurely? Verboten New York, our favorite club in Brooklyn is absolutely STACKED with legends in electronica this weekend.
Ellum Recordings head Maceo Plex, Danny Daze and Shall Ocin are set to take over the decks on Friday, and then the very next night underground legends Hernan Cattaneo and Guy J go head to head in a 5 HOUR B2B set. The melodic house and techno sounds from the Sunbeat and Lost & Found label bosses will be a glorious extended performance that you do NOT want to miss. We have highly anticipated this event since these two threw down a mind-blowing, life-changing B2B set at Verboten back in August. We can’t wait to see what new grooves these unbelievably talented producers have to share with us this weekend.
We had the pleasure of enjoying Maceo Plex’s dark, deep sounds just 10 days ago at Exchange L.A. and it was without a doubt one of our most amazing and memorable musical outings yet in the City of Angels. Maceo Plex is one of the top producers in the game right now and we highly encourage you to join us this Friday to experience the master at work for yourself.
Our CEO and founder, Kyrie Weiss, has finally made the decision to dedicate his musical talents full time to deejaying professionally. Kyrie has always kept his ear close to the new and ever-changing sounds of the world. With his vast musical library and own musical abilities, Mr. Klean is ready to make a major splash on the electronic dance scene in 2015.
Mr Klean shared, “When I think of music & entertainment, I think of life and I think of passion. Music, specifically, has undoubtedly molded the person that I am today and helped me create relationships with people that I never would have connected with otherwise. My parents ignited my musical passion by buying my first violin at age six. This passion led me through a lifetime of playing music, including five years with the Vermont Youth Orchestra, and ultimately expanding my interests into music production.”
As a result of Mr. Klean’s classical upbringing, he fully understands and appreciates the layers within musical production and what it takes to create them properly. Ultimately he fell in love with beats of all genres, and after college started StopBreatheBump to share his passion with the world. Now he presents to you his Squeaky Klean mixtape series.
