Here’s the first original track by Tropicool & Peitzke entitled ‘Cat Call’.
Oi lords & ladies! Is the looming cold front giving your tube steak frost-bite? Are your nipples harder than diamonds in an ice-storm? Do ya need an extra shot of whiskey to get that whistle wet? Thank baby jesus Tropicool & Peitzke have combined forces to form like Voltron, and assembled ‘Cat Call’, oozing with love, and dripping in gold. It’s pure sexy funk, with a heaping side of experimental sounds perfectly tucked in, leaving us craving seconds. With the lead back in your pencil, hit play, steal Dennis’s mom’s ’97 Mazda Miata, and let all the myrts in the neighborhood know you say, ‘HEY!’

The sounds of Los Angeles are strong on the new remix from L.A. producer BetaTraxx for L.A. duo Pr0files on their song “Forgive”. Pr0files once described the city of Los Angeles as sunny & twisted. The same can be said to describe this phenomenal remix by BetaTraxx. While the hypnotizing vocals give the song its shine, it’s the rework by BetaTraxx that gives the song its twisted, zombie Disco persona. The crisp, multi-layered production by BetaTraxx takes pieces of 90s, bass heavy Chemical Brothers, dirty, late-2000s Kavinsky & modern day Oliver-style Electro and molds them all together for one extra filthy remix. Crank this one all the way up & cruise around L.A. with the top down (while wearing all black, of course…because that’s the sunny & twisted thing to do).
The sounds of Le Youth continue to resonate throughout the blogosphere & the internet with his new track “R E A L”. Not many artists tow the line between Disco & House as well as Le Youth does, which is a big part of why his sound resonates with so many. On “R E A L”, Le Youth adds some gloss to the Brandy song “I Wanna Be Down” & conjures up an outstanding, chopped up rework of the 1994 classic. The combination here of Disco & House is already a winning formula. But when you add in a healthy dose of R&B to the mix…well that’s almost unfair to make a track this enjoyable.

Queens, NY producer Dart Party is releasing a new single today on the recently formed Crazy Heart Records (founded by fellow New Yorkers Ghost Beach). The track is titled “Going My Way” & the sound perfectly captures the spirit of the label. It contains elements of Disco, House & Electro done with gritty, New York style. The production is crisp & polished but the attitude is bold & retro. Before Disco got all soft & bubbly post-2010, artists like Grum, Lifelike & Yuksek were championing an edgy brand of Disco that defined the coolness of that glorious Bloghaus era (circa 2009/10). Dart Party carries that same attitude into the present day with his own brand of cool on “Going My Way”. If you like your dance floor songs served with some attitude, then get on board with Dart Party.
“Going My Way” is out TODAY via Crazy Heart Records. [iTunes]
Today marks the beginning of a marvelous Fall season for LA (by way of Virginia) quartet Mansions on the Moon: their Fall tour is kicking off in LA, their new self-titled album is being released, AND…it’s Taco Tuesday. If that’s not the Tuesday to end all Tuesdays, then I don’t know what is.
Mansions on the Moon’s self-titled album is filled with their signature brand of synth-fueled, dreamy pop songs & glossy dance tunes that will no doubt make for a high energy, fun-filled live show. So brace yourself, America – Mansions on the Moon are about to blast off.
What more can we say about our man Figgy? We’re on board with everything he does, so not only are we thrilled that his new EP “Missing You” came out this week, we’re also proud of & happy for the man himself for releasing the EP on his very own label, Cut & Dry. The EP is everything we’ve come to expect (and love) from Figgy. It’s four wonderful tracks filled with his trademark sound: multi-layered, rich, soulful tracks at a cruising speed no higher than 115bpm.
Get on board with the “Missing You” EP.
Judging by the lyrics of her new song “Foothills”, LA chanteuse Oriel Poole is a woman inspired by many aspects of life who isn’t afraid to go after what she wants.
“Life is worth the take
Make no time to waste
Challenges I face learning to create
Start from the heart, let my dreams make the rules
Let my soul shed the sound, so sensual
Wrapped up in love, it’s a bond I can’t break
A pathway only beauty awaits.”
Oriel Poole has only been producing music for two years but the mature, self-reflective qualities of her lyrics & arrangements, coupled with the veteran craftsmanship of co-producer Max Savage, take “Foothills” into similar territory as current Electro Soul heavy hitters like AlunaGeorge, London Grammar & Sia. Oriel Poole’s hardworking, grassroots approach to making music appear to have given her a creative edge. She’s a self taught producer who has raised her own money to produce an EP & build her brand. And that confidence in herself as an artist shines through in her music. The enticing Electro Soul sound of “Foothills” is MAGNETIC.
Her debut EP “Sunday” will be out in early 2015.
Julia Kwamya, aka GERMANS, is a well traveled artist living in Brooklyn, whose moody brand of Disco pairs perfectly with the style & sound of New York in the Fall. It’s a sound that is nostalgic but forward thinking. To help capture this sound on the GERMANS‘ 2013 tracks “Cruel” & “Wonderhow“, former Pains of Being Pure at Heart band member Kurt Feldman was enlisted to produce. The results were heavenly, the melodies were out of this world and admiration had begun to soar. This admiration included Dutch disco producer Auxiliary tha Masterfader (no stranger to us here at GDD). Back in 2013, he linked up with Julia via SoundCloud & asked her if he could remix “Cruel”. She said yes. He remixed the song. And the sounds of Brooklyn & Amsterdam collided. Fast forward to present day and the two are back at it again. With the signature warm synthesizer sound of Auxiliary tha Masterfader coupled with the other-worldly, moody melodies of GERMANS, this remix of “Wonderhow” will no doubt get some major feels going. The sound of Fall is here and it’s FREE to download.
Catch GERMANS live alongside French Horn Rebellion & AYER on October 17th at Glasslands Gallery. BUY TICKETS
