Here for your listening pleasure is Gorgon City‘s latest production, “Here For You,” featuring that signature Gorgon thump and a garage-y bass synth line. They set the stage perfectly for an other worldly vocal performance from Welsh that brings about an air of summer versus their otherwise peak set club anthems. Available for pre-order, be sure to capture this pocket full of sunshine before the season enters full swing and be sure to bump on your way down to Indio this weekend.

DIRT152

So everyone’s back from Miami, that’s awesome. Even more awesome is the influx of music being released as festival season rounds third base. That means this Dirt is jam packed with some fresh mulch on top to keep things nice and lively as you start texting your Coachella homies to figure out what in the world you’re going to wear next weekend. While that worry might be top of mind, erase all the rest with this loaded tracklist from myself, Colby J., and Troy Kurtz.

Australian natives, RÜFÜS, or RÜFÜS DU SOL (as copyright laws suggest they be known as in the U.S.), are an act to be reckoned with as they fuse an energetic live setup with intricate electronic components that radiate a universal feeling to their audience. With a sold out show their first night in LA and a second show added for a packed house at Bardot on a Monday, it’s safe to say that America is catching the drift as well. We got the chance to talk to RÜFÜS in between their crazy schedule at SXSW and got some insight into what it’s like leaving Australia, how they came to be, and what it’s like to have their debut LP signed to Columbia Records.

After a successful night with the Sweat It Out crew for our Miami party we’re excited to announce some new music featuring two young stunnas from the Sweat fam. Frames couldn’t make it to the show himself (someone needs to hold shit down for the Sweat crew in Syd while we’re all in Miami) but he’s blessed us with the perfect summer celebration of the perfect party – Pacifique, the lead track from his 3 track EP of the same name

A huge thanks to all that came out – We’ll be seeing you again next year 100%

My love for The Bloody Beetroots has blossomed yet again. I had the opportunity to catch an unplugged set the last time they were in Hollywood, and seeing this softer side to the musicians was pretty surreal. I mean, usually you have Sir Bob and co. rippin’ and tearin’ around on stage yellin’ god knows what and rockin’ that shit like it’s still the 80′s and metal is still cool as fuck. But beneath it all are some amazingly talented musicians (no surprise here), and this track with Theophilus London really hammers that point home. Jazz, hip-hop, rock drums, back up singers, WHAT IS THIS! I don’t know, but I’m into it. Rock on.

Copenhagen’s very own KANT inserts his own feels in last years summer anthem from French production duo, Klingande and their wildly popular single, “Jubel.” At first listen it’s hard to recognize the track that marked the best of times last year, but the ripened saxophone vibes render the dormant nostalgia. A heavy wobble accompanied by a punchy bass lead echoes melodically as virtually unrecognizable vocals belt out the verse. Warner Music has the hook on the official release come May 12th, consider yourself warned!

It’s heating up which means it’s extremely important to be able to cool down. Beat the heat with these aquatic speakers from AT&T that shoot water and light to the beat of your favorite tunes. We’ve got a punchtab setup below where we want to know which song you would bump on these bad boys…should you win!! Best answer will get shipped this box set after we announce the winner this Sunday at 5 PM. So what are you waiting for! Brainstorm away and choose wisely…

The once mysterious, now not so mysterious, Route 94 is back on that production grind with a new release on Defected Records that follows suit to its predecessor, “My Love.” Less anthemic, but equally as club ready, “Tell You Why,” features a bassline that can hold its own on the dance floor as pitched up vocals set a sultry tone for the production. With his “Fly 4 Life” EP out soon on Defected, you can be sure to find this tune alongside other Route 94 originals at the end of this month.

It’s undeniable that “I Got U” is rapidly establishing itself as the anthem of the soon to be sunny days, and with that title comes a jam packed remix package featuring the likes of French Express magician, Jonas Rathsman. The original track’s pumping back beat is toned down by the sultry ethereal house vibes of Rathsman, transforming it into more of a day dream than its pulsing predecessor. Check the whole package, out soon on iTunes, featuring remixes by MK, Tensnake, Bondax, and High Contrast.
