This week’s guest mix comes courtesy of the Oakland resident and bass music maestro, Gladkill. After seeing him kick off his Summer festival season as a headliner for the sold-out Lucidity Festival, I was certain that we needed to feature him. If you’re not already familiar with Gladkill, he has built a name around his soulful brand of melodic dubstep that provides for an emotive, down-to-earth vibe. He launches his brand new mix series, “Sessions,” that serves to showcase some of his new original music while exploring sonic and spacial territories.
In the midst of this guest mix and his recent performances, he has been deep in the studio gearing up for a stacked schedule of more live dates and festivals including Lightning in a Bottle, Shambhala, Bounce Festival and Enchanted Forest, among others. Enjoy this mix, and keep an eye out for future installments of his mix series, as well as a new release due out in Fall 2013.

As the temperatures rise, so does our anticipation for HARD Summer Music Festival. In preparation for the incredibly eclectic lineup, HARD has created a mixtape series for the younger guns on the billing called the Future Stars Mini-Mix series. Leading things off is the Colorado native and bass-driven producer Paper Diamond, chunking out 30 minutes of high energy turn up and get down. Listen below and let the countdown to HSMF begin…

Sweet, Sweet, disco nectar delivered strait to your door. This sun-kissed ultra funky mix mutates & cultivates the vibes of Tropicool‘s essence in the South Bay. Everything is in full bloom, the birds, bees, and the myrts feel it. The sand is warm and the micheladas are frosty. Poseidon is holding a conch shell to his ear, and the vibration station is starting to reverberate. Perv and swerve, because for this one, you’re meant to loose control while on cruise control.

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. We’ve taken a specific approach to curating the lineup for this event, bringing in a deeper/techier vibe to showcase up and coming acts from New York and beyond, including acts like M A N I K, Meech, Rynecologist, and our good friend Kromo, who has put together a mix that accurately portrays the sound you’ll hear from the Funktion One system this Friday. More info below…
Strap on those headphones because one of the coolest dudes and best DJs in the game has got your listening schedule covered for the next 100-minutes or so. Our good mate Doorly sent over an exclusive 80-minute mix chock-full of proper house tunes perfect for those summer after hour sessions. Up late with friends waiting for the sun to poke through the horizon? Throw this on. Get the trackilisting below after the jump.
Second off we have this fantastic two-track EP forthcoming on Toolroom Records, set to be released next week on May 15th. Excellent laid back house vibes, perfect for the impending pool season (sorry Southern Hemisphere).
Also, this remix of the all-time Chicago house classic Jack Your Body by Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley, forthcoming on S&S Records. This one has recently been supported by dirtybird bigwigs Claude VonStroke and Justin Martin.
If all that isn’t enough or you just want to experience one of my all-time personal favorite DJs in person and you’re in LA, this Friday at the Avalon Hollywood will be Doorly‘s last US gig before he moves back to Ibiza (Ibitha) for his annual summer residencies at We Love Sundays at the infamous Space as well as Ibiza Rocks.
Theo Keating AKA Fake Blood has been given the reins to the 69th episode of the legendary FABRICLIVE mix series, with the launch scheduled for this Friday at the killer London venue with sets from Fake Blood, Boy 8-Bit, and Paul Woolford. The mix CD will be released on the 20th and will feature a grip of new and exclusive material from Keating’s Blood Music. In a different promo twist, Fabric had Fake Blood take to the streets of East London to showcase another great ability of his, graffiti art. Have a look at the video above and watch out for FABRICLIVE 69.
In 4 short days, Digitalism will be kicking off their anticipated brand new live tour across the US with the first show on Tuesday night at the Independent in San Francisco. Coinciding with this new tour is a new mix from Jence and Isi, featuring some good ol’ Techno from guys like Zombie Nation, Sharooz, and Harvard Bass, as well as their new remix of Bloc Party’s “Truth” forthcoming on Toolroom. Listen below and head over here for full US tour schedule.
After hearing Andrea‘s consistently stunning tracks, and watching his all too brief Life is a Banana live set, I was inclined to feature him on a GDD™ Guest Mix. As a producer/DJ from France, he doesn’t quite fit the general style that typically comes to be associated with the European country. Andrea has a keen sense of the bass-driven underground as he tends to gravitate towards a soulful, downtempo sound with lush atmospheres and a hint of hip-hop influence. His excellent 30 minute mix exhibits his distinctive taste and strong vibes that will keep you coming back for more.
