The talented sisters of HAIM have released a Duke Dumont edit to their record, “Falling.” HAIM is a band that has been around since ’06, but didn’t start releasing music until recently in 2012. Their sound is often described as nu-folk, a genre that will fit in great with Duke Dumont’s extensive genre-spanning discography. He brings a particularly lighter feel to this edit as compared to some of his recent work that associates with a deeper late night sound. At times there is even a bit of a moombahton beat to the drum pattern. You can pre-order your limited edition pink vinyl copy of this remix EP featuring a remix from Psychemagik here.

The last Free Willy Wednesday in February brings a smashing original moombahton tune from our pal Willy Joy. While not always mentioned in the genre’s history books, Willy has been a part of the moombahton movement since day one, and this tune serves as a great reminder why. “I’m Losing You” throws a screwed soul sample, classic house stabs, a Tom Morello-style lead and Willy’s signature room-flattening bass into a blender. What comes out is an undeniable primetime club mover. Let us know what you think of this one and keep it locked every Wednesday for more Free Willy Wednesday tunes!

After electronic music broke out into one of its most pivotal years in 2012, expectations for what’s next have been through the roof. With the start of the new year, all eyes were on HARD‘s festival cruise aka Holy Ship. The staggering lineup that Gary Richards (Destructo) procured took many of the biggest names from across the board and set them out into the middle of the Atlantic ocean to kick off 2013. But why was it different than any other festival? Sure, it went from cruise ship to island hopping and back again, boasting an all-star roster – but how was that gonna set the tone for the year?
Never underestimate the power of friendship. Cheesy, I know, but for the sake of dance music and live performances, it’s what’s gonna save this year from being another circuit of the same festivals with the same stage lineups and the same sets…
ENTER: the back-2-back DJ set.

When you go out in the Big Apple, you don’t just go out….you go out with a vengeance. With a constant supply of excellent party options, party-hopping becomes an art that only the most hardy of partiers can properly perform. Well, as a tried and true “party animal” I started my New Years celebrations early and have the battle scars to prove it. Check out my insane NYE weekend after the jump and find out all the debauchery I got up to over the last few days…and don’t miss my chat with RUSKO about drugs, the holidays and his plan to release all his future music for free!
It’s been a journey. Since its inception in the summer of 2010, our longest lasting weekly feature, The Dirt, has brought a staggering amount of free music to the masses, and we’re proud to still be here 100 editions and 100 Dirt Babes in the books. It’s a tough feat to get these tracks together each week (probably why we have some gaps in the mix here and there, apologies), but it’s been an amazing experience sharing music with all of you, which, of course, is the main reason why we’re here.
We wanted to put together something special for the centennial episode, so 11 of our writers have included 2 songs each — one from one of the 99 past Dirts that we’ve posted and any other song that we felt was exceptional enough to make the cut of such an outstanding post. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed putting them together. Here’s to another 100. Continue Reading
