It’s time for the weekend – and what better way to kick it off with a special HARD edition of The Dirt, bringing you (15) tracks to pump all the way through. We welcome the HARD bossman Destructo to the selection, along with his #2, mister D BELL himself and our very own BONES. Some of these you can download (where you see the DL link given), but some you just have to listen and wait because they’re either too good to be FREE or their quite frankily not even out yet. All in all, gems abound. Dig in, my weekend warriors.
Fresh from performing on our ART CAR stage @ EDC NY, the Toronto-based Rynecologist stirred some heat in his home city, creating a track that samples the Toronto mayor’s recent denial of using crack cocaine, a topic which has become quite an escalated drug scandal in the media (up to the Canadian National Post) . Here’s what Ryno’ had to say about his production:
In light of the recent ‘Crack Cocaine’ scandal Our Mayor Rob Ford has been associated with. I decided to produce this satirical track for this bizarre moment our great city of Toronto has been given. Enjoy!
Last year’s collab track “Shake & Bake” from Nom De Strip & Bones spread like wildfire after support from the likes of Diplo, Tommy Trash and Chris Lake helped skyrocket its exposure – so far as to catch the attention of Australian diva Kylie Minogue, who loved it so much she insisted on recreating it to be her own sexy original. With the approval of NDS & Bones and the help of Chris Lake, the new version was just released on Nom’s soundcloud yesterday (written by The Dream), with already an incredible response at over 150k plays.
Check it out below, and be on the lookout for its official release!

JFK (of MSTRKRFT) is back on the piano keys to bring you another melodic anthem in “Radar” – but with the help of Autoerotique, it’s become a monster. Expect to hear this one shredding across festival sound systems all summer long.

In celebration of launch of their new record label Main Course, Neoteric, BOT (the ex-Crooker) and Astronomar have bundled up 3 releases that they have awaited until today to premiere for FREE on their soundcloud. The first slab features solo EPs from both Astronomar and Bot, and then a collaborative single release called “Ghettobox” (which is the first of their SNACKS giveaway series). These tracks are hot and heavy for the club, so don’t sleep on these weapons – support our boys and the rise of a great new label!
The anticipation for the new Daft Punk album was finally overflown last week with the itunes stream debuting and spreading like wildfire across the blogosphere. The SF disco dons WhiteNoize got their hands on a copy and made a great party blend of “Give Life Back To Music” with Ellie Goulding‘s melodic vocals from “Lights”. The outcome is a summer secret weapon similar to the crowd pleasing factor of Aeroplane vs. Flight Facilities – “I Crave Paris”, grab them both below!
