Hot off the press, our Canadian buddies Botnek have sent us their newest remix, taking on the sounds of house mogul Tocadisco. These guys keep impressing me with their innovative directions on every remix, always testing the limits of the original tracks. This version goes from a hard hitting club bassline, to a almost glitch hop breakdown, and then resurrected back to its uptempo slimy techno. GET WEIRD.
Tomorrow, Burn Unit and I will be embarking on our journey North to the first SnowGlobe Music Festival in Lake Tahoe for New Year’s Eve. The excitement and anticipation of the Wintery mountain vibes coupled with a star-studded lineup leaves me with an urge to turn the clocks forward so the festivities can finally commence. Not only is this festival great for the music, but also the other things that the organizers are including such as the art, installations, and performers that will create an experience unique to this year’s SnowGlobe. If you still don’t have plans for NYE, you may regret not taking advantage of this excellent opportunity, so grab tickets while you still can.
On top of the outstanding festival line-up you can’t forget about the official late night events taking place put on by our good friends from SF BLAP Productions, with performances by Porter Robinson, Dillon Francis, MiM0SA, and more every night from Thursday to Saturday! On Friday night make sure to catch GDD’s very own Matt Black aka Burn Unit spinning with Madeon at the Horizon Stateline Casino! Click the link above for tickets!
If you can’t make it, come back here next week for our full review! Check out my tentative artist selections, videos, and some relevant music for the drive out after the jump.

The Tipper Sound Experience, along with the incredible NeXuS Funktion-One Soundsystem, will be descending on San Francisco next Friday, July 8th. The man behind the experience, Dave Tipper, draws from his classical training to create a diverse pallet of music served for your listening indulgence. He is most widely known for his expertise in Breaks, specifically his own unique, psychedelic style of mixing organic sounds with electronic beats, but he also maintains variety in his sets with downtempo and Hip-Hop. Tipper’s interest in sound production has led to creation of this show, which is said to be “an immersive sound environment that transforms the dance floor into an ethereal field of holographic sound”.
