Over the past couple of years, we’ve been supporting the burgeoning disco ambassador from across the pond, Jack LNDN. While producing a handful of brilliant remixes, such as his hit rendition of Porter Robinson’s “Language,” he has been refining his already distinctive sound behind-the-scenes. He now manifests this revitalized signature style with the release of his new Drop Out EP, which we have the pleasure of premiering for you.
From the Timothy Leary-infused beginnings in the title track, “Drop Out,” to the feel-good vibes in “In Paradisum,” the EP showcases a more mature Jack LNDN that seems to have pin-pointed the music that resonates within his soul. By blending layers of dreamy melodies, spacey atmospheres, and groove-driven rhythms, he has created a piece that will keep listeners coming back for more. Listen/download the EP below and keep watch as Jack LNDN emerges from the UK.

Wax Motif really just knows how to work with music. Whether it’s deep or energetic, mainstream or underground, seems like the native Australian has his ears to the ground with how to make things work. With two identities, one as the more mainstream Wax Motif, and the other as the deeply underground Playmode, it comes as no surprise that he’s been putting in some serious studio time. Most notably through the twittersphere we’ve seen that a lot of it has been with Destructo… and some rappers… so I can’t wait to see what officially comes from all that.
He just dropped his mega remix of the brand new Tinashe track, ’2 On’ with an amazing feature from Schoolboy Q. Totally club ready and indubitably made for girls and guys to get down to (or get really down to… hehe) I’m hoping this energetic fusion of club / R&B / house is a sign of things to come from Wax Motif.
Crywolf and Ianborg partner up for a second time to release a massive free download upon the world. After the viral success of “Oceans” in 2013, the duo have gotten back together to successful effect once more. Their new track ‘Stay’ is an eloquent and emotional track, slow but heavy on the bass and distortion. With heavy kicks tactfully strewn across the track and piano melodies throughout, the track is carried by the crisp male vocals which cry out about love and loss. Crywolf is notably good at making tracks that build, crash, and melt like waves, and this one is far from an exception.
You can download the track from the pair below, and keep an eye out for Crywolf’s second EP on Le Castle Vania’s Always Never label which comes out later this year.
The only ones not complaining about the brutal cold felt in most of North America are the producers who’d normally be stuck inside regardless of weather conditions. So for Canadian music makers Prince Club & Poupon, they’re getting along just fine. They’ve teamed up once again to freshen up Route 94′s anthem My Love with a remodeled bassline and energized percussion hits. While they hunkered down in the studio, they informed us that they’ve also finished a new EP which they’re presently shopping out to labels. Grab the free download below and be on the lookout for their new tracks.
Following up some ace releases on both Main Course and OWSLA in recent months, Denver-based Wuki has announced an all-new download series titled WUKILEAKS, where he’ll be giving away one bootleg a week for the next 9 weeks. He’s kicked off the project today with a breaky, techy rendition of one of my all time favorite high school freak dancing songs — Mystikal’s “Shake Ya Ass.” Give the dude a like on Facebook to get it for free and keep your eyes on GDD for all weekly episodes of WUKILEAKS.
The emerging RVCA-affiliated producer/DJ, Rankin, brings new dimensions to TC’s firing drum ‘n’ bass track, “Get Down Low.” After releasing his eclectic EP, The Stagger, last year and a new jungle remix of Disclosure (bonus!) in December, the Southern California native returns with his first foray into deep house – and he nails it. With his on-point production transforming “Get Down Low” with big grooves and strong vibes, Rankin has won the attention of TC himself. The dnb icon enjoyed the remix so much that he will be releasing it as a free download through his channels, and OWSLA is to follow suit. Listen/Download the remix below and check out Rankin‘s remix of Disclosure’s “What’s In Your Head” after the jump.
Here’s how to absolutely nail it: take everyone’s favorite Outkast songs, cover them (beautifully) over a a beat that sounds more Disclosure than Disclosure themselves, throw in plenty of pitch play, blast out, set blogs aflame.
Z, you hereby have my co-sign. Whoever you are.
Is it Disclosure trolling us by putting out something so Disclosurey? Does this mean that they will be performing with not only Mary J. Blige but also with Outkast at Coachella? In The Pyramid? Do I know who Z is?
