GDD™ favorite & burgeoning underground talent, Lonely Boy, has kept his momentum rolling strong through the first half of this year. His releases, like his Don’t You Think EP [Desert Hearts Records], I Like Disco EP [Futureboogie], his single, “Everything” [Armada Deep], and more, have been a pivotal force behind his recent success, and his buzzed about performances at Mixmag Lab LA, Camp Ego Trip’s Oasis In the Hourglass, and the Kitsuné 4th of July pool party serve to catalyze his organic rise to prominence.
As he moves into the second half of 2015, Lonely Boy brings us his most recent endeavor – this collaborative EP, High Maintenance, that he produced with his gifted friend, Giom, from across the pond. As a whole, this EP is a 3-track tech-house gem featuring “Am I Maintaining,” which we have the pleasure of premiering today, as well as London and LA mixes of “Devil’s Advocate.” Previously supported by the famed Lee Burridge, “Am I Maintaining” is four-on-the-floor heater that packs a serious low-end punch, and just a touch of disco for added personality. This is a stand out release from Lonely Boy & Giom, so check out this A-side and head over to Beatport to pick up the full release via Bunny Tiger Dubs.
House legend Erick Morillo refuses to make a bad tune. “The Restorer” is the latest release on Subliminal Records, and this one will take you to church. Haunting synths take background to sampled preachings, creating kind of an eerie vibe. A huge bassline cuts in and reminds you that this is a massive house track. Think about Ibiza while you blast this one, and go grab it on Beatport.

Life’s a bitch and then you die. The haunting lyrics of Nas on his recent single have been echoed through the years of hip-hop. Dallas newcomer Zander has given us the reason to live up the motto in his low-end driven house flip, with a deep wobble, stabbing bassline and a hint of breaks for good measure. Fans of Jack Beats, Amine Edge & Dance and Tchami will be all over this one. Grab it below for FREE DOWNLOAD!

Dear lord it is entire too hot for house music right now… at least in LA. On the real, its nice to pump the breaks on the dancefloor jams for a minute and take a minute to smell the flowers, and the indie rock and other stuff. This 20-track playlist united Colby J. + brohlson and it does not disappoint. From Leon Bridges to Thundercat, theres a whole lot of fun packed into this bad boy, but no house music. BC its too damn hot!!!
Whether you refer to these boys as RÜFÜS DU SOL or RÜFÜS, man do they make a triumphant return. There has been a bit of radio silence from this Aussie trio since have released some of their biggest, more defining tracks like “Take Me” and “Desert Night.” Thus, the release of the first single off their sophomore album comes into open arms. “You Were Right” is a beaute of a track, with some wonderfully ear-piercing synths and a charming melody. If this is any indication of the rest of the album, we’re in for a treat from RÜFÜS DU SOL.

Markus “Notch” Persson is not only known for creating one of the most popular games in electronic history, but has quickly made a presence for himself in the dance music world by hosting parties around the world with the biggest names in the scene. Amidst last week’s E3 conference in downtown Los Angeles, Notch decided to blow the roof off the gamer gathering and team up with Production Club (masters behind the visual experience of Skrillex, Zedd, Martin Garrix and more) to throw a huge party under a massive dome in the middle of the Los Angeles Coliseum.
The party featured the world’s largest inflatable dome in the world (not kidding – had to be shipped over from India just for one night) and a plethora of projectors to dance visuals across the concave canvas. The visual experience was other worldly, making you feel transported to another dimension.
Oh did we forget to mention the music? The soundtrack was provided by LA’s own Skrillex, Team Ezy and Bones, along with special guests DJ Snake and Diplo. An exclusive guest list of fans and friends made for one of the most memorable nights in the galaxy… er, so it appeared!

From the radio waves to the festival stages, Fono‘s house anthem “Real Joy” has been rinsed far and wide this year. The single finally got it’s highly anticipated remix package, flexing a club edit from Duke Dumont, a junglist loving take from TC, and our favorite – a chunky jackin flip from house mogul Chris Lake and mysterious collaborator Rrotik. Lake & Rrotik take the cake on this one, giving the original a fat low end and dicing the vocal into its own instrument. Early support for their remix already comes from Gorgon City, Treasure Fingers, Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Moguai, Danny Howard, EDX, Max Vangeli, Paul Oakenfold, and Fono himself.
