We’re seeing double vision on this Monday… last week we featured the NIGHT BASS native Petey Clicks‘ latest release on Party Like Us called “BAE”, and this week we kick things off with the exclusive premiere of his B-side to the EP “DO U”. Like his high energy sets, this tracks dances along a bassline and sends you into a spiral of jackin garage. The EP is already doing wonders with familiar faces, gaining heavy support and praise from the likes of Anna Lunoe, 12th Planet, Motez, The Bloody Beetroots, Herve, Sinden and many more. Listen below, and grab it tomorrow on Party Like Us!

The LA mystery man Whiiite just dropped a little spin on Lana Del Rey’s ‘Shades Of Cool’ and it’s got a refreshing summer hip-hop vibe. The haunting vocals of Lana get flipped, cut up and laid into an energetic production with a killer drum line that carries all the way through. Here’s what he had to say…

Was vibing on Lana Del Rey’s New album on a flight from Chicago to LA and heard Shades of Cool. Started messing with a beat on the flight and this is where we ended. Hope you all enjoy. As always truly thankful for all your support… spreading the word about our project, reposts, retweets, etc. Much Love

One of the biggest tracks of the HARD Summer weekend is a recent FREE giveaway from a young producer by the name of JAUZ. His single “Feel The Volume” was heard across the park on both days, played by the likes of Tchami, Hannah Wants, Kry Wolf and Mercer. This tune goes from zero to beast and has NIGHT BASS written all over it. Big ups Buygore for this freebie, and keep watch on JAUZ for more madness like this one…

The deep sounds of Copenhagen’s KANT have landed our favorite remix on Blonde‘s new Higher Ground EP. The uplifting melodic original has summer written all over it, but KANT’s version unleashes all the feels – so much that it landed ‘Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune’ this month on BBC Radio 1. If you don’t already know his production, this track is like the the lovechild of Mark Knight and The Magician. Listen below, and grab it when itdrops on August 3rd.

To get you hyped for Claude Vonstroke’s CALIFUTURE release party tomorrow @ Exchange LA, our very own BONES caught up with his special guest for the night and our long time friend Doorly. The UK to LA transplant has been on a warpath of house music production, and playing shows across the globe all summer long….

GDD: Doorly! You’re back in Los Angeles this Saturday @ Exchange LA w/ Claude Vonstroke… how’s the summer been overin ibiza? Any noteworthy shows and/or collaborative studio sessions?

D: Just landed this morning, not slept in my own bed since May so its AMAZING to be back home for a few weeks! Having an incredible summer so far though, my new party at Pacha on Mondays is storming the island, we’ve had some mental line ups with the likes of Derrick Carter, Groove Armada, Giorgio Moroder, Basement Jaxx, Green Velvet, Shadow Child, Kenny dope to name a few passing through. Also i’ve been running a series of after hours parties at the legendary Pikes hotel, where they famously filmed wahm’s “Club Tropicana” Last week myself, Jesse Rose & Oliver $ did a back to back session and Duane harden popped up and sang along with us : )

Collaboration wise its also been a standout summer for me as well, my new collab with Cajmere just came out on his label Cajual alongside an full EP from me. I’m also polishing up more collaborations with DJ Pierre, Harry Choo Choo Romero and Switch (Featuring a spoken word vocal from Idris Elba!) And my latest record with Shadow Child “Piano Weapon” is finally about to drop!

GDD: Speaking of the studio, you’ve been on a warpath of production lately… what drove you to jump back into house music? What do you think stands out the most in your production?

D: I’ve always Made and Played house music since i started over 15 years ago its just for the couple of years that i toyed with bass music, those (Especially in america) were my biggest records so everybody assumed that i was a dubstep DJ no matter how hard i tried to convince the world otherwise. I just got to a point where i was not enjoying my gigs becuase the music being played around me was just getting more and more aggressive so 2 years ago i just had to make a conscious effort to just not play any more of those shows or make any more of that music and just solely make music i was 100 percent into again. There was a tricky year or so there becuase i was turning down 90 percent of the gigs i was being offered while i got the next wave of music out there but im so glad that i stuck to my guns because its all coming together very nicely now and i’ve never been so comfortable with my sound, i’ve definitely found my groove again.

With my productions, i’m very conscious of onto a bandwagon of whats hot right now (e.g the UK garage thing or “Deep House”) becuase i accidentally made that mistake once. My aim is to make tracks that sound like they were made 10 years ago, lots of funk but still with bass mentality to them and always for the dancefloor.

GDD: Some people might not know this, but are surgical with your DJ sets. With all the tricks you perform, do you plan out what you’re going to play for each set? Or do you just go upt here and have fun?

D: I never plan anything, i hope it shows but when i’m up there i’m having a blast myself experimenting with stuff all the time, i hate to go in with a plan because that way i’d end up playing the same set all the time and with an attention span as short as mine i would definitely look visibly bored up there! Obviously i put a lot of prep in before my sets making edits and stuff, and pioneer’s Rekordbox is absolutely my best mate these days!

GDD: You’re gearing up to play with the Dirtybird bossman Claude Vonstroke, whom you did a remix for on his recent single “The Clapping Track.” How’d that come to be and can we expect more from you forthcoming on Dirtybird?

D: It was a huge honour to be a part of that album remix package amongst some ridiculously good company, i was a massive fan of the album anyway and clapping track was my favourite track so when Barclay asked me to do it of course i nearly snapped his hand off! I’m really proud of how that came out and its still one of the biggest crowd winners in my sets.

And as for forthcoming stuff with Dirtybird, yeah 100 percent, the whole crew, DJs and Behind the scenes at Dirtybird are like a family to me so theres definitely more coming, I cant say too much right now you will be hearing something very fun from me on Dirtybird very soon : )

GDD: What do you like most about playing in LA? If this is your first time playing @ Exchange, what are you looking forward to most?

D: L.A is my home town now so i always manage to bring a huge crew with me, its great to DJ surrounded by all of your mates and then we usually end up having a spectacular afterparty at my place after as well, as the GDD crew can testify to! I’ve never actually played at Exchange before in all my years of coming here and i must have been over 100 times to watch my friends play and party there so i’m very very excited about this one, i genuinely feel like this could be one of my Biggest L.A shows to date so i’m most definitely going to Bring it!

Thanks to Barclay for asking me to come and support him on this and see you there Bone dogg!

Don’t miss Doorly alongside Claude Vonstroke & Bones this Saturday, July 19th @ Exchange LA!
