Rx, the bass alias of house guru Alex Burkat dropped the catchy “Strike Ah Pose” and Lucid, a fresh face from Melbourne well versed in grime, hip-hop and bass, turned out this turnt up remix. With neon synths and camera shutter samples you’ll find it difficult to refrain from taking multiple selfies on the dance floor jamming to this tune. Dig it below and grab it when it drops officially on February 3rd!
It’s been a little while since we’ve heard from Blatta & Inesha, but it looks like the guys have been hard at work in the studio refining their style and honing their edge as their upcoming release on BLOOD Music is absolute FIRE. Head label honcho Fake Blood has called the forthcoming two-track EP “one of [his] favorite Blood Music releases of the past while,” and Techno giant, Tiga, lends his big time support saying, “Could it be? Could I actually have gotten a dope promo…. I can step off the edge of this fucking cliff. LWTUA is great….I’ll play it for sure. Top support.”
We back the feedback from both of those guys 100%, as Low Will Tear Us Apart / East Side is one of the best releases we’ve heard in a while as well. Preview below and pick it up on February 3rd.
We’ve teamed up with our friends at The Do LaB to bring you a special edition of our guest mix series featuring San Francisco’s Giraffage!

Now with Giraffage‘s fantastic guest mix featuring everything from Canblaster to Kaytranada and some unreleased tunes of his own, you can enjoy a proper preview for his show at the KING KING this Friday, January 17th (Tickets).
This year, The Do LaB has made a commitment to feature more new and diverse music and artists for their fans at their shows. With bookings like Giraffage, Darkside, Blockhead, Teen Daze, and Papadosio, amongst others, they’re already on their way to making 2014 one of their best years yet.

It’s The Dirt #141 brought to you by Steven N. Ewald + aRod. It’s a brand new year and we’re taking things up a notch. We’ve got a 12-pack of freebies from big hitters like Treasure Fingers & The Knocks, Chromeo, Salva, Dillon Francis feat. TEED and the latest French Express release from Lane 8. Plus plenty of other freshness from our GDD mates Traveler, a blissed out Chris Jylkke remix of a Lana del Rey “classic” & plenty of straight up HOUSE MUSIC to kick this year into gear. Strap in for this week’s wild ride…
Anna Lunoe is dominating right now. The slick remixes for her hit single are out (featuring remixes by Treasure Fingers, Cosmos Midnight, Danny T, Sleepy Tom & Wordlife). Her clothing line is fly. Her artwork is dope (I obviously haven’t updated my vernacular since “In Living Color”). And her new video for “Breathe” is a smashing success.
Today we’re featuring the ultra bad-ass Treasure Fingers remix of “Breathe”. Treasure Fingers flexes some serious dancefloor muscle with this booming Miami Bass/Freestyle remix. Serious pop n’ lock vibes.
As I do for most posts involving head dirtybird, Claude VonStroke, I’ll let him address you all himself…
“This is the original 2 hour unedited version mixed live at my house for the fans with all the bad words, full versions of tracks and without any radio tags or commercials on top of it. Encoded at 160kps so don’t try to play tracks in the club they will sound like crap ;)”
Get into it.
Last week, GDD™ fav, Cashmere Cat, revealed the first single from his debut release, Wedding Bells, on LuckyMe Records in Scotland. “With Me” is an incredible sample of Future Bass and a prime example of the unbelievable music coming from LuckyMe as of late. Home to Hudson Mohawke, Baauer, S-Type, and many more artists known for pushing the increasingly thin lines between Instrumental Hip Hop and dance music, LuckyMe seems to be a perfect home to the ingenious styles of Norway’s Cashmere Cat. Stream “With Me” below and purchase it now on iTunes.
After introducing his metal-influenced side project, Gathering Darkness, with a new single, ”Serpent Of Old” featuring Ciscandra from Nostalghia, and releasing a Thump mini-documentary, Seven Lions follows up with his long-awaited remix of Royksopp’s “Running To The Sea” feat. Susanne Sundfør. In his remix, he takes listeners through an otherworldly journey lead by his deeply emotional and thematic production that draws more similarities to a movie score than a typical dance track. Seven Lions maintains his unwavering artistic integrity and continues to produce outstanding music. Listen to the remix after the jump.
This release is a first for both artist and label… a big day for both bi-coastal imprints with an appropriately big track to show for it. Based in New York and Los Angeles, brand new label collective The Big Hurt wasted no time pushing their first release, with social media pages being created only a few days ago. I would imagine it’s hard to keep the release contained, however, as the title track from Feral (formerly producing as In Transit) is a low-end bass weapon.
‘Haymaker’ relies on a mish-mash of stylings, from the oft-sourced ‘ethnic’ chimes to the pitch-shifts and pad-heavy grime stylings that have remained tried and true in the world of low end bass music. Listening to the EP preview is a further exploration of bass sounds, with clear experiments being done in song structure and hip-hop samplings. Though the fusion of the bass heavy stylings like grime and trap are nothing new, Feral is making clever little monsters. Intrigued to see what’s to come from bothy Feral and The Big Hurt.

Today, Santa Barbara’s Seven Lions releases an ominous new single, “Serpent of Old” featuring Ciscandra from Nostalghia, via OWSLA. Aside from playing numerous major festivals and touring across North America with Krewella this year, Seven Lions has released a pair of acclaimed hits – “Strangers” with Myon & Shane 54 and Tove Lo and “Fevers” with Minnesota and Mimi Page. He now adds to his 2013 repertoire with this latest offering where he swaps out a euphoric, uplifting vibe for a dark and heavy “moombahgoth” sound. Listen after the jump and purchase on Beatport or iTunes.
