The Dirt: August 12 featuring Steve Angello, Harvard Bass, Chewie Chocolate Cookies, Skream

Dear reader,

You’re probably wondering by now, “Hey, just exactly how is The Dirt put together?”  The process, you see, is methodical, remarkably simple and takes a mere 4-6 hours to complete.

1. 11AM: wake up (hungover) and get started on Wednesday/Thursday/Friday, depending on what The Penthouse’s internet functionality and our schedules have looked like
2. Find the perfect image by painstakingly googling “Filthy babes,” “Mud girl,” “Chick with dirt on boobs,” etc.
3. Edit image with primitive software, make a mental note to get photoshop/call graphic designer
4. Sort everything we’ve posted, downloaded, or appropriated from other blogs in the last week into one big playlist
5. Start deleting things, argue about song selection, criticize each others’ taste in music, point out personal flaws for several hours
6. End up mostly just using a bunch of material Matt Black has found.  Give as little credit as possible.
7. Apply album art, .zip it up, wait several hours to upload, post and send out to list of partnered blogs (6 PM)
8. Shower, eat and realize I’ve wasted my entire day on this.  Go out, start the week’s process all over.
The dirt is our weekly wrapup of our favorites for this week, ready to burn to CD and accompany you on your (very imminent) weekend voyages into unseen new dimensions of party. We give you a blend of the big tunes we’re digging and playing out as well as a few secret weapons and classics we’ve dug out of the exclusive GDD stash for you, zipped for your convenience. Our way of saying thanks for being with us this week and our very best to your weekend. The Dirt is available for you to repost to your blog, website or publication and is currently being guestposted on a number of other publications including Email stevie [at] and we’ll add you to the partnered blogs list and set you up with the full, ready to repost package.
