As everyone knows now, the new Knife Party EP Haunted House is exactly the type of bone crushing production as we could have expected, with “Power Glove” proving that in its POTATO WILL EAT YOU exclusive premiere. BUT – there is something new that needs to be recognized. The standout tune for us on the release is LRAD, a hard hitting festival weapon that sounds like an evil brother to the overly saturated field of cookie cutter big room electro these days. This one is a whole ‘nother animal, expect this one to be pounded on main stages all summer long…

In the swarm of remixes that rapidly emerged after the EP was released, the LA via New Hampshire transplant CRNKN just smashed the cleanest of the crop. Fans of RL Grime or Flosstradamus will get what I’m talking about
It seems like just yesterday that our pal Clockwork put out his 15K Bootleg Pack, and just months later, the dude is over 52K likes on Facebook. Big up Henry. The new massive pack features a whopping 12 weapons out of his arsenal — all wrapped and ready for the big room.

Gentlemen Hall‘s “Sail Into The Sun” has not only infiltrated radio by being the backdrop to Samsung and Target commercials…its also become a bonafide Summer anthem. With cheery lyrics and a laid back attitude, it’s hard to not imagine bikinis and lakeside bonfires with this on in the background.
Three Chicago artists take a stab at the track on two separate remixes – Dani Deahl & Animale turn the track into a main room blitzer with Dutch-like synths that rise into a crescendo. It’s countered by blithe breakdowns with the plinking music-box sounds from the original and uplifting melodies, but it doesn’t stay silent for long. Expect to hear this one on the summer festival circuit, notably Dani’s performance @ EDC Chicago!
Chicago’s Sam Padrul capitalizes on the track’s breezy qualities and shifts it into a nu-disco jam. Replete with lush chords and dripping with funk, Padrul eschewed most of the supplied stems, opting to just use the vocals while writing all his own instrumentation. Catch a summer vibe on this one…

Every year countless business and personal relationships are born at WMC/MMW in Miami and this year that was certainly the case for MAKJ. Through the course of a few booze-fueled parties MAKJ met and befriended Belgian electro/techno duo Sound of Stereo, and after confessing to them that “Zipper” is still one of his favorite tracks to this day, the lads decided to relinquish the stems to MAKJ so that he could put his own twist on the track. The results are an uber-bouncy Melbourne House electro monster! Already supported by Hardwell on his HOA radio show, this one is ready for the weekend!
This Friday @ CONTROL, we welcome the Italian big room heavy weights Nari & Milani, who championed the festival sets with their massive single “Atom” last year. They are joined by UK monster duo MYNC, who too take things to main stage proportions. Supporting the night will be our own local phenom MAKJ and an opening set by Rico Rox. Things are gonna escalate quickly! This event will reach capacity early, so please RSVP below and arrive before doors to guarantee entry!
Please email names to RSVP@gottadancedirty.com to be on our discount guestlist for the evening. All names must be submitted by 5PM on Friday.
$15 before 11pm

Amtrac is at it again, this time bringin’ some extra heat to an already en fuego tune. The Bondax mega jam, “Gold”, gets a deep rave edit from GDD favorite Amtrac. With refashioned vocals & a deeper, darker vibe, Amtrac takes a bold approach to the song that puts his edit in a different class than some of the more recent (and very solid) remixes that have surfaced lately. Amtrac is one of the few artists who can put out an original, edit or remix that is equally effective at a festival as it is under the headphones laying in the dark…that’s probably why we just can’t get enough of his sound.

There’s something viciously nostalgic about french house producer Panteros666 latest LP Hyper Reality. This new album released by one of my favorite labels, Bromance Records, seamlessly blends 90′s hardcore rave samples and dark house vibes, unquestionably inducing you into a convulsion of no return. Hyper Reality converges into a musical concept like no other, there’s no doubt an alien abduction took place and the message is… DESTROY!
Panteros666 aka Victor Watel has spent years developing his cyber-pscychedelic aesthetic, cleverly molding genres from acid techno to future bass, and even some southern rap influences. Expect drone-type vocal samples, steady bass lines, apocalyptic synths and just an overall invitation to another dimension. Definitely not an album for the faint of heart. Check out the Hyper Reality mini mix and what Panteros666 crafted for his live shows… the future is here!

Oh how I would love to hear Goldroom’s latest track, “Only You Can Show Me”, at Coachella this year. His latest song has disco festival vibes written all over it. Nothing would please me more than walking into the Sahara Tent as the sun is going down and hearing this tune radiating through the crowd. With it’s sweet, airy vocals (courtesy of Mereki), jammin’ percussion and phenomenal disco-meets-big-room breakdown, “Only You Can Show Me” would drive any festival wild.
While Mr. Josh Legg + Co. won’t be playing Coachella this year (we’ll have to leave it up to the DJs at Coachella to play this song), you can still check out Goldroom’s live show happening now through the end of April in the U.S. and Canada.
“Only You Can Show Me” is out NOW.
To kick off the weekend and his performance tonight @ CONTROL, the LA native FYOR (formerly NO BODY) is giving away his youtube inspired new original It’s A Fyor. Sampling the infamous “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That” video, this one rings in as a solid crowd pleaser fit for the big room set. But make no mistake – despite the parody, this track goes from zero to main stage with a fat crunching bassline and howling lead. Grab it below for FREE, and catch FYOR tonight supporting Crookers, GTA and Valentino Khan (along with our own Burn Unit too) @ Avalon!
