Future Classic‘s own, Touch Sensitive isn’t a sound, it’s a feeling. It’s served frothy, always smooth, and imported strait from down under. With a wardrobe only to match the intricacy of his sounds, a beautiful music mosaic is formed. Ascending and descending melodies paired with funky bass will have you cruising in the sun-kissed rays in no time. It’s time to eat some pizza, get sensitive, see sounds, and listen to colors because when this tape is over, you’ll swear you might have drank a little too much of that serotonin smoothie.
Oh, did i forget to mention this is the solo project of Mikey from Van She?
Hip house & programmed synth progressions equal success. No one could pull off this combo better than our buddy from belguim, A.N.D.Y. He gets help from Dominique Young Unique who sounds like a blend of Lisa Left Eye Lopes of TLC & Yolandi of Die Antword. Strange combo? Yes – But it works magically; give it a spin below.

As if the EDM acts coming out of France weren’t killing it already, another French outfit called Club Cheval (Canblaster, Myd, Sam Tiba & Panteros666) is quickly making its mark in this competitive industry as one of the most radical acts of the moment. In the midst of their upcoming EP on Bromance Records, the four-piece monster group just released an exclusive preview in mixtape form for Dazed & Confused Magazine. The tape features their very first original track. Download free!
Coming off a huge week of WMC/MMW and Ultra Music Fest, we return to LA to bring you a high energy VERSUS lineup that is sure to shake the west side. This thursday, the one and only Will Bailey will be making the US debut as his underground moniker LOW STEPPA. On top of that, his partner in crime (on the hugely supported moombah anthem ‘Ruckus’) Valentino Khan will be dropping a set, as well as techniquq mgmt / iheartradio’s Sam Hiller. Supporting the night will also be sets by Evan Koncan and Redbull’s Ryan Lassi.
It wasn’t long ago when Jon Pegnato made up half of LA Riots, but now, he has embarked on a solo mission under the Hot Mouth moniker, bringing Electro and House to the masses. In the past couple of months, Hot Mouth has been busy. Besides signing with Liaison Artists and playing at the Palms in Vegas every week, he’s been working on collaborations with Felix Cartal, Nom De Strip, TJR, and more, as well as putting together a monthly mix series for our lucky ears here at GDD™. Now, it is time for Hot Mouth to make his VS debut at The Central in Santa Monica, and we couldn’t be more excited. Support on the night will come from SF’s Realboy, Gojira, and Check&Mate.
The golden tune is finally coming out next week. After months of mystery and anticipation, TJR is unveiling ‘Funky Vodka’, his soulful swingin’ ruckus of a jam. Prepare for what I’ve BEEN calling (since last year) one of the best tracks of 2012. Set to release on Chris Lake’s Rising Music on February 20th, I can’t wait to see the widespread success and support (not to mention the remixes that will follow!)
We’re kickin off this weekend RIGHT NOW. The main man TJR has just put out (2) phenomenal mixes for the masses, representing the electro edge and the funky fidgety techno side. In celebration of TJ performing @ our VERSUS party tonight in Santa Monica, he has given us the exclusive unveiling of the track listing for his mysterious ‘Funky Tekno’ mix – we’ll wait a second while you go “YESSSTTTTHHHHH.” Packed with staples from this madman’s DJ sets, you’re bound to find some gems in these track listings. TJR has huge releases forthcoming on Chris Lake’s Rising Music label, along with support from the likes of Tiesto, Fatboy Slim, Chuckie, Benny Benassi, Dada Life, Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki and so many more…
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.
Rolling along into the new year, CONTROL brings you a colossal lineup this week @ the Avalon. We welcome back the breakbeat monster duo Stanton Warriors, along with big room terror Bassjackers all the way from the Netherlands. Making his CONTROL debut will the rising gun and GDD favorite Clockwork, along with closing support from Hogwash and our own very BONES opening up the night. Make sure to RSVP and get there early! This event will reach capacity before midnight.
