What’s up my fellow dirty dancers, I hope your weekend is treating you as well as it is treating me. This has been a great week in music, whether your in Miami or not (and if you are, I want you to know I hate you a little bit). Anyways, I was very honored when FuzZ, Avedon and Zedex all decided to contribute to this weeks dirt! From complex IDM to French House, the three artists certainly differ in their sound, but not their unmistakable talent. With a wide range of songs to choose from on this weeks dirt, there is certainly something for all of you. So without further ado, myself, Fuzz, Avedon and Zedex present this week’s dirt after the jump!
*Check out the exclusive tracks from Fuzz, Zedex & St. Andrew!
A fire remix by Metamimetic‘s Zedex. This track has everything; a good groove, a funky feel and synth lines so massive they are guaranteed to take you on an exquisite psychedelic journey. These kids are the ones to watch in 2011!
• FuzZ – Safe in My Hoodie (FuzZ’s 808 Remake) [Name Your Own Price]
FuzZ was signed to N.A.S.A. label Spectrophonic Sound last year and he just dropped this little gem earlier this month on his Bandcamp. It’s the first of several releases scheduled for 2011, including anticipated collaborations with members of The Pack and a few experimental solo releases.
St. Andrew is flying under the radar right now, but soon that’ll all be over. Repping Iowa and Los Angeles, Andrew has been making magical music for a few years now. I would normally spend these next few sentences talking him up, but it’s completely pointless when the music speaks for itself. Prepare yourselves, and keep an eye out this summer for Andrew’s new label, Rabbit Recordings.
• Lützenkirchen – Dread Phrase [Beatport]
Everything this guy turns out is fire. Lützenkirchen has given us a haunting track that is so ill its slightly frightening. Dread Phrase is a dark one; with an infectious bass line and intricate percussion. This track will make you wish you were in a German dark underground bassment rave…perfect!
This track is a hard hitter from Mr. Tim Berg aka Avicii. I think we all know well too much about this 21 year old prodigy, his engineering is unbelievable.
• Audiobot – 3000 [Beatport]
This guy has been on my radar for a while. I first heard a few of his tracks on the Laidback Luke forum and I could tell there were gonna be some bangers coming from his direction. This is one of his newest originals and it’s already got support from Chuckie and Joachim Garraud just to name a few. This one bumps.
• Egyptrixx- Everybody Bleeding [Beatport]
Night Slugs have been blowing up as of late, garnering attention from Rinse.FM, XLR8R and Pitchfork for damn good reason. Based in the UK, these dudes are on some new shit, expanding minds and stretching genres. Be sure to check out all the artists on this label, as they’ve all been inspiring me lately. Shouts to Gavin and Andrew for the introduction.
• Siriusmo- Programchild [Beatport]
Yesterday Siriusmo put out a small release on Monkeytown Records, and guess what? It’s amazing. No surprises there, Siriusmo has been one of my favorite producers for years now. Check out the whole release if you get a chance, it’s white hot.
• Bart B More & Harvard Bass – Listen To This (Jan Driver Dub) [Beatport]
We all know and love Bart B More, and his new track with Harvard Bass is being played all over. Here’s Jan Driver’s rendition of it and it’s pretty heavy as you might expect. I’m expecting a lot more from Driver, one of Alex Ridha’s newest recruits on Boysnoize Records.
• Mr. Fogg- Answerphone (Raffertie Remix) [Purchase]
Raffertie is an innovator. Recently starting his own record label, appropriately called, Super Recordings, he has been consistently changing the game with his futuristic genre crossing dance-noise. His newest remix of Mr. Fogg, which dropped on March 21st, is sure to leave you amazed/confused in the best way.
• Entyce ft Hazel – In Da Club (Oliver Twizt Remix) [Beatport]
Not too much I can say about this one, just straight club fiyah.
• VHS Head- Franco Zoom To Nowhere [Beatport]
This guy is being slept on and it’s a damn shame! He just dropped his first full-length entitled Trademark Ribbons of Goldlast year, and it’s a monster. As far as comparisons go, Mr. Oizo and Siriusmo come to mind, although VHS Head is really doing his own thing. Peep the album, you won’t regret it.
• The Japanese Popstars – Song For Lisa (Benny Benassi Remix) [Beatport]
Benassi’s newest release gives me hope that this guy can still put out fresh shit. This one goes in a completely new direction but maintains that Benassi feel. Love the vocals on this track, props to The Japanese Popstars for a beautiful soundscape.
Ladies and Gentlemen, this one’s a banger!
Always with love,
