Forever Kid are out on the town, generally messing with Hollywood.  Check out who they mess with at the end.  Any vandalism of that place is pretty neat in my book.  Something tells me they’ll somehow receive a sternly worded letter signed by several lawyers for that one.  If you happen to be several lawyers who represent a ridiculously fraudulent cult, and would like me to pass a sternly worded letter on to Forever Kid, please email stevie@gottadancedirty.com, thanks!

Forever Kid Fridays comes a day early today, and they’re after my own heart.  In the years since the King of Pop has passed, we’ve seen plenty of hasty remixes leech their way up  the blogs every August 29, his birthday.  Today we have something different and special, a tasteful ode to the man and legend that was, and always will be.  Forever Kid‘s signature dream-come-true styled synths reimagine these iconic riffs, bust their way through with flying kicks, and send us head first into the end, for that face-melting Van Halen solo we all know so well.  They basically rocked out a 2013 pop anthem out of a 1983 pop anthem.  I’m on listen #4.  Rest in paradise, MJ.

Imagine cruising around the waters of Long Beach, CA on board a triple decker ship, while a multitude of killer acts– this time including GDD™’s TROPICOOL and our good friends NICEFINGERS– play across 2 stage areas, indoors and out.  On 4th of July weekend 2013, a lively and very boatworthy crowd of 600 people did just that, to fantastic effect.  Boatylicious was born and is now back for round two…

Forever Kid are at it again.  This week’s Forever Kid Fridays features another big remix, this time of the dance classic Can’t Get You Out of My Head, by uberbabe Kylie Minogue.  Our first installment of the series saw Forever Kid’s Beegees remix quickly ascend the ranks of Hype Machine to #1, and I expect nothing less from this one.  Bold, layered synthwork accents Kylie’s ethereal and eternally sexy vocals in a hugely haunting way.  At first listen you’re transported to the crescendo of a mainstage set from a festival in a dreamy retro-future.  And there’s a killer solo at the end.  Stay tuned and #RefuseToGrowUp.

Forever Kid are up to no good.  In celebration of last week’s Beegees remix quickly reaching #1 on Hype Machine, the boys flipped their helmet on to nightmode (+ a Go Pro they installed in it, of course), made a quick stop at Costco, then took off for a bit of stealthy night mission trouble. 300 rolls of toilet paper and 15 cans of shaving cream later… and hmm what’s that new sound at the end? We’ll find out next week on Forever Kid Fridays. #RefuseToGrowUp

Forever Kid is a feeling… a dream-come-true back to times when things were simple, free, and more fun.  Influenced as much by the soaring solos of rock ‘n’ roll as by pounding big-room anthems, these two childhood friends from Sweden have come together to bring you Forever Kid Fridays on GDD™.  We’ll have an exclusive throwback remix or original every other Friday, and it looks like some antics to be found in between.  Today we have their big, crunchy remix of the Bee Gees classic, Tragedy.  It’s Friday kiddos– have some fun with this one.

REBELRAVE TV never disappoints!

Crosstown Rebels has enlisted T-E-E-D. to mix the Get Lost VI compilation, getting us very excited for perhaps our finest night of the summer, if not the year… GET LOST LA.  Digging very deep, quirky, soulful, a very nice eclectic mix of treats and treasures– particularly the end of track #4, Axel Boman – Klinsmann.  So cosmic.

More from Moderat, the collaborative brilliance of Modeselektor and Apparat, in this first single from their forthcoming sophomore LP.  What sounds a bit of a poppier departure for them with the vocals in the beginning is backed by a very Moderaty beat, quickly giving way to the transcendant, poignant atmosphere that never ceases to amaze and induce a cool chill.  Can’t wait for more.

The Foundation, is just that. It’s me going back to my roots of dub, hip hop and acid. It’s my modern take of decades of music I grew up with infused with electronic music (elements).”

-David Heartbreak

This EP is seven tracks of big, brutal, gangster ass reggae vibes.  Melding dub, reggae, acid, trap, electro and everything in between; David Heartbreak stretches his musical roots with an incredibly diverse and engaging sonic pallet.  Perfectly suited for OWSLA, who just keeps supplying us with the goodies this week.
