Italian turntablist DJ Delta returns with an extended episode of his video mix series, 20 Minutes With DJ Delta. In this edition, the 2016 Red Bull Music 3Style Italy champion digs deep into his foot-stomping house crates and delivers a soulful set.
Delta notes that this set features his typical scratches, tone plays, juggles, and remixes, and is twice as long because “house music has a long mixing style, with drops and vocals that create a journey into the groove.”
The 25-year-old Canadian beatmaker has produced ten top 10 singles in the past three years. He released back-to-back hits in 2017 and 2018 with Migos, Cardi B, and Nicki Minaj‘s “Motorsport” and Drake‘s “Nice For What”.
Murda Beatz discusses his production inspirations, working with Drake, how to make it as a “Youtube producer” in the social media age, and more. He also talks about how Toronto has been able to maintain creative domination over much of hip-hop music and culture.
Watch the interview above.
The visual centers around a wild photoshoot featuring the artists. Carnival season opens this Thursday, so the urban anthem is aimed for this weekend’s activities in the streets of Rio and beyond. Continuing with the theme, Major Lazer has recently released its Soca Storm EP.

Though not a top-ten Billboard hit, Hit-Boy notes in the video that the energy of the track still leads to moments that are “too epic.” He highlights the way that the sing-along hooks ride over the track’s scattershot percussion as particularly impressive.
Hit-Boy’s three-year stint in the G.O.O.D. Music camp yielded top-ten Billboard chart productions like Kanye West and Jay-Z collaborations “N**gas In Paris” and “Clique.” Working with Kendrick Lamar in 2013, the Los Angeles-native producer notes in the clip that he felt a brotherhood with Compton-bred K. Dot, making the collaborative process relatively simple. He takes us through the production layers that comprise the track, showing a deceptively simple brilliance to Lamar’s bell-ringing, sing-along club anthem.

Liverpool-based DJ/producer eSQUIRE has dropped a modern update of Beyoncé‘s 2003 hit “Naughty Girl.” The DJcity Records release features pulsating energy and a thumping house groove that provides a funky, seductive vibe.
Having created remixes for the likes of Martin Solveig and Galantis, plus being inspired by Axwell and Eric Prydz, eSQUIRE’s sound is rooted in hook-driven pop. His style is a perfect fit for a song that reached No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and made it into the top 10 in a half-dozen countries worldwide.
