This week’s Dirt comes courtesy of the lovely Laura D and myself, Toks. We’re here to bring you the latest and greatest in everything from NU-K Garage to Dubstep and everything in between. Load up on some fresh tracks for the weekend, you know you’ll need it.
LAURA D’s PICKS
Danny Brown – Lie4 (Kaytranada Remix)
Combine my taste for weird and off-kilter rap with traditional Chinese pipa (like a sitar) chords and faint trap-influenced snare patterns and you’ve got Kaytranada’s remix of the very unique Danny Brown. A really cool combination that has lead to this being on repeat for me for the past two weeks. What the fuck I got to lie for?
Sinden & Brenmar – One Two
Sinden and Brenmar are no strangers to each other, with a few collaborative efforts, Brenmar releases on Sinden’s Grizzly imprint, and even mutual production credits with various artists (including a personal favorite of mine, Mykki Blanco). This particular piece sees both artists take a less raucous-club route, but regardless the vibes are still there proving the two artists as having their fingers truly on the pulse of the current club and dance scene.
Druid Cloak – Night Touch
As many know Druid Cloak is no stranger to myself and Toks as a signee to Kastle’s Symbols label, and ever since his release he’s been releasing really solid material both for free and on very fitting labels. His latest release, out on Infinite Machine, drops soon, and as an added bonus he’s dropped one of the tracks “Night Touch” for free over on XLR8R.
Sango – Nujabes Juke
Fast paced with all-the-way-turnt-up pitched vocals, Nujabes Juke is a track that stays true to its title. A cheeky little weapon that will keep you jacking wherever you hear it.
Crywolf and Aylen – Silence Part II
Crywolf has set the blogosphere ablaze by dropping two free original collaboration tracks in anticipation for his upcoming EP on Always Never (the Ghosts EP, released April 9th), this one with Aylen takes female vocals from a soft and melodic start to a colossal breakdown.
DrDr – Addicted (Polkadot Remix)
Deadmau5 ft. Imogen Heap – Telemiscommunications (Re-Collect Remix)
Lindsay Lowend – Bar Harbor
Affelaye – Never Felt Real
Russ Liquid – Alpha Bravo Echo Zulu
Circuit Bent – Electro Sunglasses (Electrocado Remix)
