Dirtybird is one of the best labels out there — hands down. It’s been a decade since Claude VonStroke, Worthy and the MartinBrothers started their BBQ parties up in San Francisco, and they’re celebrating 10 years in the best way possible: throwing eight parties on two continents in three months. Lineups in each city will differ, but CvS and Justin Martin will be on board for all eight. Underbill artists include Worthy, Eats Everything, Julio Bashmore, Catz N Dogz, French Fries, and way more.
After barely surviving a week at the LA GDD penthouse, I had to get back to work and curate a mix for my Friday night residency at Arkadia in Miami. Arkadia is quickly becoming one of the premier house music venues in Miami, and I’m stoked to be on board. Tonight I’ll be warming up for EDX, along with a special guest from the West Coast who has been known to start some riots. For more info about upcoming events or ticket sales, click HERE.
About a month ago, I was driving home from lunch and received a call from the music director at the Fontainebleau in Miami beach. He told me that he just confirmed Deadmau5 on the first day of 2012, and that I would be opening. As you can expect, I almost crashed my car. Now, less than a week to go before the gargantuan show and I’m frothing to see the event unfold. I’ll be warming up the party alongside Stephan Luke and Damaged Goods. It kicks off at 7pm poolside and pumps until 11pm, at which point everyone will head over to the after-party inside Arkadia. Tickets for the show are available here.
Good morning, I hope you had a great weekend! There isn’t much going on this morning with the holidays, however, I have some news regarding Swedish House Mafia’s Masquerade Motel, Rusko’s free remix collection, and Afrojack’s Lost & Found Part 2. Read more after the jump.
After a crazy weekend that was brought to an abrupt stop, we are back to reality on this first day of the week. The news for today consists of the WMC 2012 dates, a Boys Noize Q & A, an introduction of Hyundai’s REMIX LAB Series, Fred Falke’s debut album, and uncertainty with Coachella 2012. Start your week of strong with some GDD™ Morning Update knowledge and check the full stories after the jump!
After a bit of a hiatus, we get a double dose of Pirate Stereo. His new mixtape ‘Noches de Lobohombo 2′ includes his remix of Inigo Jones ‘Believin Gets Hard’, which is a low-tempo gem that you might find in one of The Magician’s mixtapes. ‘Noches de Lobohombo 2′ has a steady progression from feel-good pool jams to dancefloor heaters, signified by Erol Alkan’s Rework of Metronomy. Both Pirate Stereo and I will be playing at IDentity Festival in Miami this Thursday August 25th. Also, we’re proud to announce that we’ll be doing a show with TEED (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs) and The Magician at Bardot November 3rd (more details coming soon).
