Thicke x Bix = bootleg flair. Our LA brethren Bixel Boys continue to keep things haute on the RnB tip with their latest edit of “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke. The one characteristic that sets the Bixel Boys apart from many other producers is they simultaneously have their fingers on the pulse of mainstream America AND underground America & continue to combine the two seamlessly & effortlessly. Simply put, when you put those two things together properly, you get real shit that’s real fun.
Grab this delicious new bootleg + enjoy…
Not much else needs to be said about Clancy that we haven’t already said before. We love his sound & how he always seems to find the perfect balance between deep disco & deep house. Clancy elevates his game on each new track he puts out. His latest track, “The Way You Dance”, is a hypnotizing deep track with a repetitive groove. Even if you found yourself alone on the dance floor, “The Way You Dance” has the kind of infectious, repetitive groove that makes you just not give a damn, as long as you’re dancing.
I’ve always appreciated Tesla Boy for taking their dark disco & new wave influences from decades past and modernizing them into a sound they’ve been able to call their own. They’ve taken an 80s-style approach to their sound and updated it with an edge that new wave & synth pop from that era was sorely missing. Their latest track “M.C.H.T.E.” harks back to early INXS (particularly “Original Sin”) with the addition of that definitive Tesla Boy bounce. That added punch alongside some big percussion & always-stylish vocals on “M.C.H.T.E.” should be plenty to get Tesla Boy’s faithful fans fired up & ready for their forthcoming new album. Time to get excited!
Tesla Boy’s new album “The Universe Made Of Darkness” is out worldwide on May 21st.
“Reverse Skydiving” by Hot Natured (featuring deep house vixen Anabel Englund) has been burning up dance floors this festival & conference season. And, with a recent batch of top notch remixes (featured HERE last month), “Reverse Skydiving” shows no signs of slowing down. While the original & early remixes offered up a sultry, more noir-ish tone, the hot-off-the-press Benoit & Sergio remix offers up a much more playful feel. If there’s one version of “Reverse Skydiving” that can carry the tune right into Summer, it’s the Benoit & Sergio remix. This one’s got rooftop pool party written all over it.
It’s hard to imagine sexpot Rihanna sounding anymore desirable than she already does but her 2011 throwback track “Cockiness” gets sex-leveled up by 18-year old Leeds producer Jonas LR. With chopped up, smoothed out vocals over luscious UK garage/future bass beats, RiRi never sounded so hot.
This Jonas LR sex jam has made the rounds on a few fantastic mixtapes recently including Kloak’s GDD™ Guest Mix and Kaytranada’s Spring Mixtape for Bromance. Ooh la la.

I couldn’t have imagined a better way to close out Coachella this year than by watching the Disclosure boys rock the Gobi Tent. Their blistering set was the perfect end to an amazing weekend. The set ended with two special guest vocalists, Jessie Ware on “Running” and Sam Smith on “Latch” (see below). No offense to the Red Hot Chili Peppers or Eric Prydz, but if you weren’t at Disclosure to close out the festival, you were doing it wrong.
Midway through their set, Disclosure announced that they were playing a new track off their upcoming album. The track turned out to be “You & Me” featuring Eliza Doolittle, and despite the fact that nobody in the crowd had heard the song before, it did little to deter them from cuttin’ some serious rug (or in this case, some serious grass). Check out “You & Me” below and get to steppin’.

• November UK Tour Announced! Pre-Sale details here: www.disclosureofficial.com
• Album featuring ‘Latch’, ‘White Noise’ and ‘You & Me’ available for pre order www.disclosureofficial.com

It’s always a treat to hear something new from our L.A. compadre Le Youth. The sound of Le Youth transcends the overly familiar brands of tropical/deep/nu disco sounds we’ve been over exposed to over the last few years. Le Youth has created a brand of electronic all his own. It’s a modernized throwback sound that fuses together all the right elements of sunny disco & old school house. His latest remix of “Fade” by Jakwob balances that disco/house sound brilliantly. Whether it’s billowing through the speakers at a club & filling the room with joy or sweeping over the sands of a beach party, Le Youth’s remix of “Fade” will keep any party going, daytime or night.
This is big! Today we bring you a hat trick worth of goodies from our main man Mighty Mouse. First up is Mighty Mouse’s brand new remix of “Love of a Life” by Keljet (feat. X Ambassadors). The ingredients of this tasty treat include a dash of squelchy disco mixed with a big scoop of throwback house all served up and ready to be devoured on the dance floor. And On The Fruit Records is giving this one away as a free tasting…
Amtrac is at it again, this time bringin’ some extra heat to an already en fuego tune. The Bondax mega jam, “Gold”, gets a deep rave edit from GDD favorite Amtrac. With refashioned vocals & a deeper, darker vibe, Amtrac takes a bold approach to the song that puts his edit in a different class than some of the more recent (and very solid) remixes that have surfaced lately. Amtrac is one of the few artists who can put out an original, edit or remix that is equally effective at a festival as it is under the headphones laying in the dark…that’s probably why we just can’t get enough of his sound.
