She recently finishing her latest EP, The Lucky Ones. The first single, “Self Defined” is an upbeat number as beautiful as it is empowering. After all, what’s more powerful than a strong, talented woman enchanting the listener over a strong, electronic beat?
Maya Payne says she is currently working on her full-length, but we all know art takes time. So for now, define yourself with this euphoric debut and keep your ear to the internet.

It’s April, the sun’s out and that means it’s time to work on the beach tan during the day and pop bottles in the sweat-filled clubs at night. No party gets cracking without the right beats and Santa Cruz’s own The Pirate has just the mix to get those asses shaking.
Whether it’s spinning tracks at Emissions or setting up shows with Raindance Productions at clubs throughout San Francisco and Santa Cruz, The Pirate has worked ’round-the-clock in the Bay Area and Northern California EDM scene for a better part of the last decade. With a wide range of musical taste, the Pirate perfectly blends reggae, trap, hip hop, dub and even calypso into hard-hitting, one-of-a-kind tracks.
His latest mix is 29 minutes of slammin’ beats and intoxicating rhythms for the Bass Tribe’s “Spring Bling” series.
