Today we cap off unofficial Light Year Week here at Gotta Dance Dirty™ (our third post on them this week) with Light Year taking the reigns as our special guests for this week’s edition of The Dirt. Jordan & Mikey of Light Year are about to embark on their “USA Vacation 2011″ tour and want to give you a little sample of what you might expect to hear during their month of mayhem as they get set to rip up the States.
Not much else needs to be said that hasn’t already been said here and here. So without further hesitation, Gotta Dance Dirty™ presents to you The Dirt #31 featuring Light Year (right after the jump).
When it comes to remixing big names you feel a little pressure to perform and when it’s two of the biggest names, Tiga & Zombie Nation, you feel it even more. Lucky for us we teamed up with The Finger Prince to form a collaboration of our own. We love how it turned out, easily one of our favorite remixes we have done. Released on May 30/31 (for those keen for the most beautiful vinyl release ever – Turbo100).
Strip Ghetto and The Glow Man!! When these 2 get together and make sweet French love, it makes Light Year happy. Plus, Mr. S. Ghetto has done a dope retro house remix of ‘Movin’ for us that is being released on “Light Year Remixed” very soon.
We are really excited about this record and who wouldn’t be with another mega collab on the way of Para One, Surkin & Bobmo. This is a go-to track in all our sets at the moment, it reminds us a lot of Dave Taylor (Switch) early stuff but with all the modern gimmicks needed to make kids dance.
If you have ever listened to a Daft Punk or Armand Van Helden track & instantly fallen in love with what a good sample and even better bassline can do, then get ready to send some chocolate & flowers to Vito Lucente aka Junior Jack. Easily one of our favorite house tracks ever.
The Round Table Knights played this on Sunday morning in Melbourne at Revolver and the place blew up. Moodyman talking over the top of one of the coolest house grooves this year is pretty much as good as seeing the dude in person. Dope!!!!
Our buddies have completely nailed this one. We love that solid techno vibe but the hip hop undertones and production make it sound so fresh. All their stuff is off the charts, go grab their new EP quick!!!
And stay tuned for our Light Year & The Finger Prince collaboration later this year too.
