LA’s Promnite, co-founder of Fool’s Gold‘s Athletixx collective, has never been known to pigeonhole himself inside any one genre. His wide-ranging affinity for styles ranging from smooth, downtempo hip-hop to heavy, club beats is what makes him such an enticing DJ.
Promnite’s most recent debut on Sirius XM‘s Diplo’s Revolution channel (formerly Electric Area) has proved him to be as eclectic as ever. The hour-long Cookout mix is the ideal poolside appendage for the indie-dance lover, packed with welcomed curveballs like soulful nu-disco “Summer Love” from Ed Wizards & Disco Double Dee, as well as the distortion-heavy house of “Grind” from Les Sins, the dance-focused alter-ego of Toro Y Moi‘s Chaz Bundick. Each time Promnite sweetly sedates the senses with downtempo instrumentals, he soon coerces the listener back to the dance floor with another clandestine club discovery.
