To get you ready for his debut performance @ EXCHANGE LA this Saturday, we bring you an exclusive promo mix by the one and only Seth Troxler. One of the top ranked DJs in the world rolls through Los Angeles this weekend and its gonna be one for the books… Listen below and don’t miss out on the show!
First they had a feather fight. Then they did what’s known in the industry as ‘the gettup’ and proceeded to tear a hole into 2013… Now San Fran / Bristol’s finest dynamic duo Justin Martin & Eats Everything return with two more beastly jams:
“Steven Jello” takes us on a deep journey into the groove space continuum. Boasting a strutting cosmic bassline, hypnotic percussion, weeping synth flurries and a timeless house vocal shot, it’s Justin and Eats at their most contemplative. Heads down, feet to the floor, get busy… We have no idea who Steven Jello is, but as he’s inspired a tribute like this, we’re already in love with the man.
“Kong” is so monstrous it’ll have you climbing the nearest skyscraper for safety. You’ll be ducking from the groaning, moaning airplanes overhead. You’ll be air drumming to the gargantuan tub-thumping fills. You’ll be shaking your hairy booty to the snake-like percussion. You’ll be pounding your chest to the rusty organ flourishes. You’ll be asking yourself… Where has this tune been all my life?!
Few co-lab projects resonate with such distinctive shared spirit and sonic camaraderie. It’s a shame Justin and Eats don’t live closer together or we’d have an entire album of this high calibre material by now.
LOS ANGELES – Don’t miss Justin Martin & Eats Everything playing a very special 8-hour b2b set on Saturday, April 5th @ EXCHANGE LA!
“Many people have asked me why and how I make the music I make. My surroundings have always molded how and why I make my sound.”
A GDD favorite and familiar, the Russian native Proxy has emerged back on the scene with a visual statement of the topical situation he lives in. This short film by Sean Robinson was shot in Proxy’s home city of Orekhovo-Zuevo in late Feb 2014, and gives a small insight into what makes Proxy the producer he is. Although a non-political insight into his world, it shows the pressure of his surroundings nonetheless. An elusive character, he invites us to take a subtle look into his life and what the man is about ahead of his Summer run of USA dates, and his new music forthcoming in mid 2014.
The long awaited and much talked about collab between our boy RL Grime and Emoh aka What So Not has finally surfaced on soundcloud, and the result does not stray far from the rumors… this track is a monster that we can expect to slay the festival circuit starting this month in Miami. Sinister horns flare atop a “big bad bass line” and are teased with the melodic vocal chanting “tell me.” Listen first below!
WMC – Don’t miss What So Not performing @ our GDD x Sweat It Out! showcase on Tuesday, March 25th!
