The Tipper Sound Experience, along with the incredible NeXuS Funktion-One Soundsystem, will be descending on San Francisco next Friday, July 8th. The man behind the experience, Dave Tipper, draws from his classical training to create a diverse pallet of music served for your listening indulgence. He is most widely known for his expertise in Breaks, specifically his own unique, psychedelic style of mixing organic sounds with electronic beats, but he also maintains variety in his sets with downtempo and Hip-Hop. Tipper’s interest in sound production has led to creation of this show, which is said to be “an immersive sound environment that transforms the dance floor into an ethereal field of holographic sound”.

Santa Cruz-based Vital Events, who earlier this year assembled an all-star lineup of Nero, Skrillex, Datsik, and 12th Planet under one roof, is bringing dubstep godfathers Skream and Benga alongside drum ‘n’ bass lord Sub Focus to San Jose on Thursday, June 23rd. Early bird tickets went on sale last Saturday, but if you’d like to try your luck at a pair on us, then fire up your Facebook and Twitter accounts and read these directions carefully.

Facebook: Like Gotta Dance Dirty and Vital SC on Facebook? Good. Tag us both in a Facebook post and let us know who you’re most excited to see.

Twitter: Retweet this and make sure you’re following us.

One lucky contestant will be randomly selected from both the Facebook and Twitter posts with the winner declared in one week. Now, if you aren’t sold on the idea of seeing these three heavy-hitters in action, then bear witness to Skream and Benga as Magnetic Man for their US debut as a group this year at Coachella.

Good luck!

Being that it is where I’m from, you should all know that GDD loves Colorado. Especially its unique taste in music genres and the epic EDM groups that have come out of there over the years; SAVOY and Pretty Lights just to name a few. However, there is a new presence to be aware of coming straight out of Boulder, CO known as Robotic Pirate Monkey. Formed in early 2010, R.P.M. consists of the B-Town trio of Matt Berryhill, Matt Flesher and Andrew Hathaway (aka. Hathbanger). Since forming R.P.M. has grown their fan base from local to statewide, as the next big up and comers on the Colorado electronic music scene and now they have the chance to prove their weight in the Golden State. For six weeks in May and June, R.P.M. will be cruising around the great state of California, bringing their Rocky Mountain bass to the West Coast. With opening support from THiCK CHiCK and Skywalkerr, R.P.M. announces their Buried Treasure Tour with 12 stops along the West Coast (including a stop at our VERSUS party on the 19th of May) – check ’em out below:

Jungles Tales: Vol 1 by RoboticPirateMonkey

Fresh off of massive performances at Ultra and SXSW and prepping for an equally massive US tour, ZEDS DEAD have gotten love from everyone from BBC Radio 1’s Kissy Sell Out to GQ Magazine to Much Music (Canada’s MTV, remember?) while maintaining the signature raw energy of their live shows alongside the elegant brutality of their productions.

You’ve been chomping at the bit on our GDD Facebook since we announced this release, so without further ado it is my distinct pleasure to present to you ZEDS DEAD – 1975.  Full track download, tour dates and a video of Christiano Ronaldo’s righteously (ridiculously) sexy Russian girlfriend Irina Shayk grinding dirty to the track in her intimate wear.  Seriously…

SAN FRANCISCO! I am pleased to announce that our friends at Our House Records will be putting on yet another electrifying night in the City on April 30th at 330 Ritch with the one and only, Felix Cartal. OHR artists Realboy will be there for support as well as Bay Area residents, Dynamics. Now, for those that have never seen Felix play out before, this is a STRONG recommendation from yours truly to see the man at work. For those that have seen him before and might think that he’ll play just another Electro set, I strongly disagree. I was lucky enough to catch Felix’ closing set at Nikki Beach at No Sugar Added in Miami last Friday, and I can solidly state that he was the most on-point I have ever seen him, not to mention the GIANT new bombs that he dropped on the sweaty 4:30AM crowd. Take it from me, you will not be disappointed. Buy tickets HERE now!

And if you haven’t already, check out these monsters that Felix will unleash on ya…
