DJ Killa Chris’ June 11 top tracks includes entry from Sultan + Shepard

DJ Killa Chris’s new playlist [CLICK HERE FOR PLAYLIST] of his top ten tracks for this week includes "Skipping Stones" by Sultan + Shepard, & Le Youth - and much more!


Skrillex - Supersonic (My Existence) [with Noisia, josh pan & Dylan Brady]

This is the best song I have heard in a long time. The sound design on this track is insane.

Poo Bear - The Day You Left

The vocals on this tune are really fun especially the syncopation effects during the chorus. The guitar is so crisp and the bass sits under everything perfectly. Skrillex produced this track so it’s obviously been crafted to perfection.

Flight Facilities - The Ghost

This is such a weird house track. The bouncing reverb and vocoded vocals are hypnotic. The acid house synth really ties everything together magnificently.

Sultan + Shepard & Le Youth - Skipping Stones

This song is so uplifting but I would expect nothing less from Sultan + Shepard. Le Youth's vocals are hauntingly beautiful. I hope they collaborate more in the future.

Two Friends ft. Emily Vaughn - Useless

The vocals on this song are so catchy. I like that the piano is the main musical focal point.

Snakehips & EARTHGANG  - Run It Up

The piano on this song is so smooth. The bass and beats are well designed and the vocals complements the other aspects of the track.

Golf Clap - Lose It

Golf Clap always makes really fun house. The bass is infectious and I really like all the lazer and space sounds in the build ups and drops.

Futuristic Polar Bears - Ravers Unite

I like the big room house feel to this track. Tons of energy in every build up, I expect this will be played out at a lot of festivals.

Au5 & RUNN - Make You Cry

Au5’s sound design is spectacular as always. All the 80’s beats at the beginning gives it such a playful feel before it gets really heavy. The vocals are well done and the different effects before the drop are really interesting.

Arno Cost & Norman Doray - Show Luv

What an amazing nu disco track. Whenever disco tracks are sampled in a song it can be done well and this song hits the nail on the head.

Velvet Ibiza

Every year, Ibiza is home to Europe’s very epic queer woman’s party, Velvet Ibiza, which is celebrating its 7th anniversary and promises to be next level. Velvet Ibiza is an all-inclusive 5-day and 5-night party and includes transportation from the airport, a bungalow, 3 meals, and activities and parties day and night, and drinks until around 10:30 pm.

This year, international crowds of LGBTQ+ women will be attending Velvet Ibiza on May 2 - 7 to celebrate life, belonging, and freedom. Event organizers have rented an entire resort in order to build a community vibe and allow queer women to connect so there’s no reason to go anywhere unless of course, you want to go shopping, head to the beach, or explore the island.

Financial Planning for the LGBTQ+ community

The new year has arrived. For many people, that means making resolutions and thinking of ways they can do better in the coming year and beyond. Money management and financial planning are often very popular resolutions and goals, but most financial advice tends to be aimed at heterosexual couples who want to grow their family and raise children.

But, what if your life goals are different? What if you don’t receive the same protection under the current laws as hetero couples?
What if you don’t want to have kids?
