Classixx – I’ll Get You ft. Jeppe (Gigamesh Remix), Riva Starr – I Was Drunk Ft. Noze (Original Mix), & Gramophonedzie – Why Don’t You?

“I’ll Get You” somehow gets even more laidback and jubilant, Riva Starr produces tech house for gypsies and two serbian house producers remix a jazzy pop song from 1942.


I’m back from Berlin. I’d tell you all about it but why don’t we let these tunes express how I feel and I’ll just say that a couple weeks ago I went four days without seeing the sun. I left my mind in Germany.

Riva Starr – I Was Drunk Ft. Noze (Original Mix)

Riva Starr has done some truly strange and wonderful things recently. He’s done some killer remixes– “rechunks” as he would have them– of Solid Groove, The Gossip and Fatboy Slim and his productions are just as gold. Tech house for gypsies is really the only way I could possibly begin to describe how fresh this shit is. The video posted above is clearly a smashing good time and in addition to producing and rechunking he’s also done some pretty clean video editing to accompany his music, making his Youtube channel worth checking out. Everything I’ve heard and seen by him has been interesting and unusual and I fully expect to see much more good from him in the next year.

Classixx – I’ll Get You ft. Jeppe (Gigamesh Remix)

As I’m sure you’ve deduced by now, dear readers, GDD thinks very highly both of our friends from LA Classixx and DiscoTech‘s Gigamesh. The original is one of my favorites from 2009 and with this remix Gigamesh starts things off with some poignantly atmospheric children’s laughter and proceeds over the next four minutes to soak your sweet little ears in a celebratory massive swell of thrown back disco layers. Fabulous.

Gramophonedzie – Why Don’t You?

Finally I’ve got an elusive little pocket monster I’ve been trying to track down for a while that I caught during a lot of early morning sets in Berlin and I’m very pleased to share. These clever producers known as Gramophonedzie from Belgrade, Serbia take a sample from Peggy Lee’s 1942 lounge banger “Why Don’t You Do Right? (Get Me Some Money Too).” Here’s a video of her performing it with Benny Goodman in ’43 and that hot cartoon babe performing it in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Absolutely infectious, I can’t wait to drop this.

And I can’t wait to finally see all of your smiling faces again at the CONTROL 1 Anniversary with Armand Van Helden and a fully stocked lineup for GDD’s House Party room.
