There’s not a whole lotta info about up and coming producer, LEVI, aside from the fact that he’s French. There must be something in the water over there though because this Obligation EP is some dope shit. Driving beats mixed with Justice like grunge, progressive meodic synths and funky grooves amke this 3 track EP diverse and delicious. Take a listen below and make sure to grab it —> here!
Out now is the latest from Le Castle Vania’s label Always Never Records, an amazing and multi-faceted six track EP from Miami based producers SLDGHMR. I’m really impressed – there’s not a whole lot of young American producers that have finesse and versatility in delivering an EP that progresses from barreling techno to indie/nu-disco type stylings whilst maintaining a sound true to their artistry.
So Good To Me was easily considered one of the top tracks of 2012 and a prominent force that brought Chris Malinchak new fans across the globe. Since its first release back in October (official release was May 5th), not many producers have attempted to reconstruct this classic into their own. This notion changed though when the UK up-and-comer, Ejeca, dropped his free remix earlier this week. His version reworks the original vocals into a chopped up, jackin house club remix. Don’t sleep on this one or any tunes from Ejeca!
It’s officially starting to feel like summer time in LA. The sun is shining, girls are out by the pool, and the disco tunes keep flowing. What better way to celebrate the season then a new tune by Moon Boots. Love Strong stays true to form with the French Express vision blending sensual soul vocals and vibrant keys. Pour yourself a drink and enjoy the free download!

Hard to believe that the multi-city festival known as Electric Daisy Carnival is about to commence this week in New York City, and GDD™ is proud to be teaming up with our friends at Insomniac to book out the Wide Awake Art Car stage this Friday, May 17th.

Our boys, Thee Cool Cats, are always putting in work when it comes to making music. With an array of releases forthcoming this summer, they’ve pulled another track out of the vault to give away! What It Do is another one of their classic G-House stompers with a bassline guaranteed to keep your body grooving. Keep it locked on their soundcoud page and enjoy the free tune!
Back again to hit you off with yet another tune getting heavy support from the dirtybird Records fam and more, this one has been a staple in the sets of everyone from Claude VonStroke to Flux Pavilion to Justin Jay recently.
Mr. Oizo’s seminal 1999 dance music anthem, Flat Beat, perked up the ears of an entire generation of talented young musicians to the sounds of Electro House. The track was made viral before viral existed by a clever Levi’s marketing campaign and a all-time classic music video featuring the above pictured Flat Eric (partaking in some nefarious activities GDD™ does not condone). Usually I’d recommend against tampering with such a well-known and universally beloved song, but the Leeds-based dynamo Aaron Snapes took a crack at this one and absolutely knocked it out of the park.
Get the track after the jump.
From the hills of Navarre, Spain, the Basque trio dubbed Crystal Fighters continuously releases quality , energetic folktronica, and the first taste of their forthcoming sophomore album enticingly wets the palate for what is to come. The single “You & I” came out a couple of weeks ago via the group’s Soundcloud. It’s a joyous production, heavily influenced by live instruments and flowing uptempo vocals, and undoubtedly provides that ever-approaching summertime feel. GDD™ favorite Gigamesh has tried his hand at remixing the fantastic original, adding in a flickering, Kavinsky-esque synth — giving the track a much more electronic feel. Download the remix below and keep an eye out for Crystal Fighters’ album, Cave Rave, out May 27th.
