skrillex boomrat playlist

Over the past week, we’ve seen an awesome union between our friends at Boomrat and OWSLA.  Exclusive playlists from the likes of The M MachineValentino Khan and Yogi have paved the way for the grand finale: Skrillex.  Nothing needs to be said of his prowess in all things electronic.  Check out his curated collection of tunes that covers everything from melodic bass cuts to Drake.

After the success of their track, ‘That’s Right‘, which came out earlier this year on Mad Decent, Wuki and Jesse Slayter have teamed up once again to energize The Weeknd’s lullaby, Often. And in an exciting turn of events, it appears that Bmore is making a solid push to come back into the lime-light. It warms my nostalgic heart to hear the sounds of yesteryear seamlessly merging with the production prowess of the the present, and I tip my hat to these guys who are pushing the boundaries of dance music. Also, major kudos to Wuki, whose banner year hasn’t stopped as Jack U just included 3 of his tracks in their Diplo & Friends mix that dropped earlier this week. Expect to hear a lot more from these guys in 2015.

Head to his facebook page for the free download and check out the rest of the LP here!

Ghostea - Still Sippin

Central coast California producer Nathaniel Stevens, aka Ghostea, is a an excellent fit for the Perfect Driver Music crew.  Perfect Driver are on a roll this year with a string of cutting edge, stylish & intelligent releases.  Like their February release of “Got Em” by Lux Groove, Ghostea incorporates a much welcomed Breaks sound into his songs & the result is a refreshing new style that puts Perfect Driver well ahead of the curve.

The “Still Sippin” EP is full of deep, atmospheric breaks & smooth vocals (by Millie Mayz) and still packs a formidable punch.  The “Still Sippin” EP is out now via Perfect Driver Music.

Here we are in the 3rd week of WUKILEAKS — the 9 part bootleg download series brought to you by the talented and oh-so creative, Wuki. After setting his sights on Mystikal and Telefon Tel Aviv the past 2 weeks, the Colorado-based producer has now drifted into the Pop realm for his third giveaway, adding a booty-shaking, breaks vibe to Mariah Carey’s 2005 jam with Jermaine Dupri, “Shake It Off.” To be honest, I hadn’t heard the original from Mariah in years and this revamp from Wuki is currently bringing back some sweet, sweet high school memories for me. Download here and stream below! √+

Lux Groove - Got Em

Lux Groove returns with his second official release entitled “Got Em”.  ”Got Em” is a head bobbin’, hand clappin’ piece of chunky house action.  It’s bass heavy with a bit o’ breaks harking back to the early/mid-2000s when drums were king & acts like Plump DJs & Stanton Warriors dominated the Electro Breaks/Bass scene.  Back then, every DJ from House to Progressive to Trance to Breaks would always try to work this style tune into their set.  Lux Groove is bringing the style back big time, making it more modern & giving it an updated Booty drum sound.  Get dirty on this one.

“Got Em” is out now via Perfect Driver Music.

Following up some ace releases on both Main Course and OWSLA in recent months, Denver-based Wuki has announced an all-new download series titled WUKILEAKS, where he’ll be giving away one bootleg a week for the next 9 weeks. He’s kicked off the project today with a breaky, techy rendition of one of my all time favorite high school freak dancing songs — Mystikal’s “Shake Ya Ass.” Give the dude a like on Facebook to get it for free and keep your eyes on GDD for all weekly episodes of WUKILEAKS.

Anna x TF

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.
