There's something very special about the spirit of the West Coast. It is the stomping grounds of hip hop legends and a place where the sun always shines. It's also become a mecca of a new wave of electronic music, housing some of the most innovative sounds from up-and-coming producers that call the "left coast" of the United States home.
To help give you a taste of the eclectic and bumping Sounds of the West Coast, we've launched a Spotify playlist that'll be updated every Wednesday with new tunes, artists and sounds that are exploding on the West Coast's festival circuit.
The playlist covers a wide variety of genres, including tech-house, deep house, future bass and even drum 'n' bass from artists across the board like Sacha Robotti, Mija, Justin Martin, Lee Foss, Bonobo, TÂCHES, MK, Chris Lake and many more.
Valerie Lee is Mixmag's US Digital Editor and will be curating the Sounds of the West Coast playlist. Follow her on Twitter
