With CRSSD Festival being this weekend we have reached our final Artist Focus Chart in the CRSSD Festival series. Last week we shared SNBRN's playslist and the week before that is was Cut Snake's turn to curate. Now we have the pleasure of sharing with you a playlist from one of our favorite artists of the moment, Jai Wolf.
He's put together a solid selection of tunes that perfectly fit his distinct style of music along with the CRSSSD Festival theme. Be sure to make your way to San Diego this weekend to catch him in action live.

Hitmane - 'Over U (Chet Porter Remix)'
I met Chet Porter last month and he's the absolute coolest. I was lucky to have been a secret guest at his debut LA show (which he crushed). He showed me this as a work in progress and I thought it sounded amazing - Chet has this distinct style of producing and every track he puts out has this sort of signature 'cute' sound. This song perfectly displays his talent for intricate synth patterns over carefully placed drums.
Louis the Child - 'It's Strange (ft. K.Flay)'
Louis the Child is one of my favorites right now, and I had a blast playing with the in Chicago just a few weeks ago. They're these two kids out from Chicago and they're absolutely phenomenal. Their debut single "It's Strange" showcases there unique talent to build tall walls of sound and work intricately around vocals.
Jessame - 'Lights'
I actually met Jessame the other week in San Diego without realizing he did Lights. I had reposted it before I met him and the club was really loud so I didn't catch his name at first. Then he tweeted me the next day and I was like oh snap you did Lights! His voice is so incredibly smooth, I'm a big fan.
Khai - 'Do You Go Up'
Khai is one of my favorite up-and-coming singers and his debut single is soooo chill. This track is minimal and perfectly executed - a great baby making jam for sure.
CVRL - 'Hon (ft. KAREFUL)'
This is a really random song I found digging through Soundcloud. It's haunting and beautiful at the same time - it reminds me a bit of Purity Ring whom I really love. Definitely keep an eye out for this guy.
Rusty Hook - 'Drip'
Rusty Hook is probably one of the most talented future bass producers out there right now and Drip to me showcases his knack for sound design. The track is a roller-coaster of cool sounds from beginning to end. Can't wait to hear more from this young talent out from France.
Caribou - 'Can't Do Without You (Manila Killa & Kidwaste Cover)'
Manila Killa is one of my favorite producers and best friends. His sound is moving into this awesomely beautiful place, and his latest release perfectly harnesses that beauty.
ODESZA - 'Light feat. Little Dragon'
I absolutely loved Odesza's album "In Return" and felt lucky to be part of the remix package for Say My Name. We've become buddies over this past year and they're hands down some of the nicest (and funniest) people I've met so far in the music industry. They just released their live versions of their songs as well as instrumentals and as a bonus, they released this new tune with Little Dragon. It's absolutely elegant and beautiful and is sonically a perfect addition to "In Return".
