    If you keep crazy hours like us (these deadlines can be a dooz!), on Tuesday mornings from midnight to three a.m. you can find DJ Anthony Valadez playing everything from Kimbra to the King of Pop over at KCRW. Trust us — his selections will have any frequenter of the graveyard shift grooving! And he's not just a wee hours of the morning person, either. Valadez spends his Friday nights spinning sweet beats at the Zanzibar in Santa Monica. Definitely not your normal nine-to-fiver, right?

Prepare to hit repeat on the ol' iPod because these five tracks will beat whatever current sounds you're sweet on!
