TGIF! Put some wiggle in your weekend with the little house heater “We’re All Friends” from NY to LA transplant Sean Glass and collaborator Jay Xero. Their little medley features a cheeky but infectious vocal from Rocko Rochee that dances atop a hypnotic groove all the way through. Sean told us “‘We’re All Friends’ picks up on the real spirit of house music­­ – inclusion. House music is a color and gender blind community that simply seeks to connect.”

“I’ve been reading GDD for more than a decade, always admiring their tastes. Thankfully, I’ve since had the pleasure of playing with Bones, Tropicool, ARod, and becoming friends with Toks, Jonah and the whole crew. I’ve always been so much in sync with all of their tastes, so I’m really happy to have my production featured on the blog, and hopefully I’ll hear it in their sets soon!” – Sean Glass

Our GDD friend and familiar Craig Williams has put in overtime to make a name for himself in the techno-sphere, tallying up releases on Motorik, Nervous, Sweat It Out, NEST (OWSLA) – not to mention hosting numerous production tutorials on his YouTube channel and giving away serious tricks of the trade. His newest release “Believe It” just dropped this week on the Toronto-based imprint BADLQQK, and the Aussie held nothing back on this jackin’ techno heater. Here’s what he had to say about it:

I definitely went for a more minimal feel than before. I had been listening to a load of great classic producers like Robert Hood, cajmere and green velvet to name a few and i think the the house vibe just crept in. The song defiantly developed from choosing a select number of machines in the studio and just jamming out.

Since recovering from a severe car crash, the Parisian future-house aficionado Tchami has announced his own record imprint called Confession, celebrating its launch with a free compilation and releasing one track at a time. Today they just dropped a new one from the mysterious producer known as Malaa, and its all the hood inspired house you could want from the French phenom.

In case you missed the first release on Confession, it came from the low end stylings of French Canadian artist ANGELZ:

The Aussie house gangster Hey Sam is back at it with a dangerous club flip of Ayo Alex’s new single Want it featuring Juicy Jay and we were all over it before we even got the nod on this premiere… here’s what the young gun had to say about it:

“AYO Alex hit me up to do this remix and I jumped on it straight away as I’m a big fan of his original version but it’s a little too heavy for my DJ sets. My version is more stripped back, bassline driven and I’ve found it has plenty of impact in the clurrrbbb.. Also stoked that Uprise Music have let me release this for free download.”

Inspiration can strike at any time, whether in a positive or negative light. The mysterious young gun known as JOYRYDE has channeled his anger into his production and creating a beast of a track built on a fusion of bass house and hip hop, with piping energy all the way through. The result is Hari Kari, the Japanese term for a ritualistic suicide method of Samurai – but today that deadly act comes in the form of a free download. Listen to his words and grab it below!

“Yo Rydrz. someone made me feel not so happy a few weeks back and this record is the result.. When the world fucks with you CRANK THIS SHIT and HARI KARI those f**xx… Stay fresh team.. J” – JOYRYDE

Emerging as a dominant brand in Los Angeles, Minimal Effort will return this Halloween to create a haven for dance music connoisseurs with no boundaries once again. A certain commonality will exist between those in attendance, those that are performing, and the entities that may or may not be present. Three stages will be curated for your enjoyment and entertainment and hosted by some of the most extraordinary brands in dance music. A plethora of artists will provide sounds for your enjoyment, some of which will be known to many and some which might be unknown to all. Taking place at the magnificent Belasco Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, this is not going to be your ordinary Halloween event. For nearly 30 years, Belasco Theater was resurrected as a church and rumor has it that phantom footsteps were heard by members of the congregation coming from the stage as well as odd rustling sounds from back stage when the area was completely empty. A former organist tried to explain these sounds and believed that people actually heard a very elderly lady who lived under the stage who was “inherited” from the previous church. Occasional sightings of this woman eventually diminished and she did as well. Her true identity was never known and her spirit may still linger until this day. The sounds you hear might not be coming from the speakers, the essence you feel might not be from within, the spirit you embrace might not be your own. Get ready for the most magnificent and extravagant Minimal Effort yet and proceed with caution.

Racking in millions of soundcloud plays and riding high on support from Porter Robinson and Flume – Swedish phenom Kasbo wraps up 2015 with his last original of the year “World Away”, just released on Odesza’s new imprint Foreign Family Collective. This cinematic production embodies the young artist’s sound: soulful, evocative, and melody-rich – moving from bass-heavy, synth-fueled sequences to airy atmospheres, all with raw energy that you can feel. Kasbo also joins Odesza on tour this month, with a virtually sold-out schedule across North America.

Australian young gun Naderi is no stranger to the scene – the Sydney-based producer been making locked in the studio for years working behind-the-scenes engineering and mixing with huge fellow Aussie artists ranging from Flume to What So Not and Carmada. He burst onto the scene this year with official remixes of Daniel Johns’s “Aerial Love”, Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” and GRiZ & Talib Kweli’s single “For The Love” all garnering hundreds of thousands of plays and various press coverage including a feature from Billboard. His latest project takes on Canadian live-electronic act Keys N Krates’ most recent single “Save Me.” The Aussie talent manages to masterfully transform KNK’s hit into a more upbeat version while keeping Katy B’s vocals intact. Featuring bombastic synths and a delicate piano outro, the revamped track even further proves why he’s making the transition from behind-the-scenes collaborator to a true solo artist.



Look out for the remix release October 2nd via Dim Mak Records.

Chris Lake is no stranger to your ears, but his latest tune is just that. ‘Stranger’ dropped today via Ultra Music. It’s a favorite of ours already among his warpath this year, as he mentioned to WSJ that 2015 has been “one of the most inspiring years of my life,” not least because of ‘Stranger.’ “I’m in a headspace that’s taking my sound into new and exciting directions,” he says. “I think this record… fully represents what I like to achieve in a dance track, and it’s one of my favorite records to play in clubs.”
