    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? On occasion he'll even step out from behind the ones and twos to get lyrical with a lens, snapping pics around SoCal (check out his blog).

    When we found ourselves craving some jams to fuel our summer nights that so easily turn into early mornings, we got the expert's opinion on which new songs will excite our eardrums. Prepare to hit repeat on the ol' iPod because these five tracks will beat whatever current sounds you're sweet on!
