Shadow Dancer is back with their 6th Boysnoize Records‘ release, Second City. The new EP is a experimentally delicious blend of Techno and Electro that packs a punch. However, Second City isn’t just an EP full of dance floor bangers, it also showcases the duo’s enviable synthesis talents as well as their ability to put together a full, well-rounded release.
Without a doubt, Body Work has rapidly become one of my favorite imprints out there, and the next piece of gold being uncovered is the upcoming 1983 EP from the Paraguayan trio, LPZ — due out on May 7th. This release sees 3 original tracks, each with their own very original sound. The title track ’1983′ takes on influences from Detroit and Chicago and truly is an instant jackin’ anthem. ‘Mafia (Dub)’ then takes the listener down deep, providing for that much needed late night dancefloor roller. Finally, we culminate with ‘Snake & Butterfish,’ which makes you feel like you’re walking through a Saudi market on a head full of acid in slow motion. Yes, it’s like that. √+ for the whole EP. Stream the first two track and download the third after the jump. Continue Reading
19 year old producer Etnik has got me counting down the days until his newest EP, Vino drops. The title track, Vino is full of huge drops, analog sounding synths and a certain dark yet brilliant sound that has become rare in todays EDM scene. The Vino EP will feature a first class set of remixes from Rynecologist, NT89 and Borussia. The EP is due to drop on April 10th.
Matt Cutler, better known as Lone just released his first single for his forthcoming follow up to his 2010 smash LP, Emerald Fantasy Tracks. Crystal Caverns 1991 is a fast paced yet melodic track that reeks of early 90′s rave nostalgia. The EP’s B-Side, Vulcan Mill Acid is a bouncy and acidic track with percussion that is both well sequenced and complimentary. Both of these tracks will be featured on Lone’s upcoming album, Galaxy Gardens, which is slated to drop 05/07/12.

Last year turned out to be a great year for the 19-year-old German born producer Etnik and for good reason. With a plethora of well known producers praising the young prodigy for his dark and unique sound, Etnik exploded all over the EDM scene. The final kicker may have been when Skrillex shared Etnik’s newest remix of the track, Summer, by the Berlin-based indie duo, I Heart Sharks. Ever since, Etnik has been on powerful producers’ radars as he continues to churn out brilliant tunes left and right. I consider Etnik to be one of my favorite producers, so I could barely contain my excitement when he agreed to do a GDD™ interview and record an exclusive mix just for you dirty dancers.

The latest EP from the legendary DJ Pierre is slow burning, bassy, deep and of course, an acidic masterpiece. With his newest release, Acid/ Jack Da Groove, DJ Pierre has taken us back to that beautiful squelchy sound that was a staple of the Acid House recordings in the 80′s and 90′s. If you are a fan of the recent Acid House resurgence then I highly recommend you pick up this EP, you won’t be disappointed.
The third and final installment of the Unified Theory trilogy from the Belgian duo Mumbai Science features two tracks, Chemistry and Alchemy that are a nice blend of house and techno. I must say that this final installment is my favorite; it just gives me my much-needed dark and acid vibes. Both tracks are huge and are a must get!
It had been a just a few short days since Alex Ridha, the dark techno overlord better known as Boys Noize, had completed a monumental two night stand at the now sadly and inexplicably dormant Music Box in Hollywood (soon to be reopened once again as The Henry Fonda). Yet it was midweek, a Tuesday, and the children still wanted their techno.
In a more intimate setting than the previous two gigs, and in a part of town regarded for being a bit more accepting of doing something different, Boys Noize laid down one of the most eclectic and exhilarating sets I’ve ever seen him perform.
Above you can capture a 37+ minute snippet of the madness, and after the jump a conversation with him and legendary producer/DJ Switch, who also threw down that night. If you’re not familiar with the Check Yo Ponytail! crew who put on the show, get familiar.
