San Francisco

Fresh from the slopes of the Snowball Festival, Miami Horror returns to the Mezzanine in San Francisco for a near-sold out live performance this Thursday night, with support from Reporter and locals Boyz IV Men and DJ Eli Glad. If you’re reading this now, hopefully you’ve joined over 10,000 dirty dancers in ‘Liking’ our facebook page, where I’m giving away a pair of tickets to your choice of Miami Horror or Friday night’s HARD Weekend event in Oakland. So far, more readers are gunning for those HARD tickets so if you’re over 21 and want to see Miami Horror live on us, ‘Like’ us on facebook and leave us a comment here.

I think I can speak for everyone in North America when I say I’ve just about had enough of the cold weather and am more than ready for some hot hot hot. Not just because the bikinis are busted out, but because with the warmth comes the festival season. To kickstart the season of massives, HARD Weekend starts next Friday the 11th in Oakland, sweeping down to LA on Saturday the 12th and then onto New York City for March 18th and 19th.

This week’s Fresh Meat Mondays post is a day late due to today’s release of the promo video for Hard Weekend. But, I think you guys will be happy with this specific giveaway. We have for you SMD‘s hit song “Cruel Intentions” respun by two of techno’s true legends; DJ Pierre, who many credit as inventing acid house, has remixed the track and John Digweed has put his own spin on it. Too much win.

If you haven’t entered already, it’s not too late. Keep your eyes peeled readers; I’ll be giving away tickets to Miami Horror, HARD Weekend, and more!

Our House RecordsRealboy have been kind enough to give GDD™ the exclusive on their new track, No Child Left Behind. After great feedback from their debut hit, The Ritz, the duo have been making splashes in the NorCal scene, with their next big gig on March 4th at the Mezzanine in SF with a night full of Electro featuring Le Castle Vania, Fukkk Offf, Realboy, and more. If you’re going to be in the area, make sure to pick up tickets HERE before they’re all gone. Until then, get this into you.

Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at Gotta Dance Dirty™; we love each and every one of you. This week, we have a very special 18+ giveaway going on our facebook page to see Bart B More, Nisus, and myself at the infamous Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco. Mr. van der Meer played to a jam-packed Control last Friday so do not sleep on this opportunity to see the Dutchman at one of my favorite venues in San Francisco.

Our facebook giveaway ends Tuesday night and if you want to play it safe, tickets are still available at Blasthaus. Hopefully you’ve taken the initiative and become a facebook fan, but if not, this contest and the pair of tickets that I just gave away to HARD Weekend in Oakland should be reason enough.

Alright dirty dancers, for our third installment of HARD Fresh Meat Mondays, we’re proud to present the first part of a very special DJ set, recorded in London in November 2010 at SMD’s Delicatessen warehouse party. To celebrate the launch of their “Delicacies” album, SMD DJed with friends & family, and they’ve carefully cut three hour long segments from their set, and we’re going to be presenting these exclusively in the weeks to come. You can listen here exclusively on GDD™ and then download from the Hardfest site, from the link below. Also, grab your tickets to HARD Weekend coming up in March before it’s too late!

To kick start the mountain of EDM events to come this year, GDD™ has been given the exclusive weekly on something special. Simian Mobile Disco and HARD have teamed up to bring you new tracks from the band’s private reserve each monday leading up to HARD weekend.
