Kastle has unveiled his most recent track set for release just in time for Miami (March 19th), and it seems like he’s been listening to a fair amount of Disclosure lately as “Red Light ft. Ayah Marar” has undisputed parallels to the UK duo’s smash hit, “Latch.” Sexy, swinging, and 100% necessary to add to your Miami playlist, “Red Light” has opened up a new door in the already impressive production toolkit of Kastle. I hope we hear more like this from the forward-thinking Symbols labelhead this spring.
My favorite psych-rock experimental group is at it again. American Royalty just released their highly anticipated EP entitled Prismatic, on Guns in the Sun Records, and it is quite the harmonious gem with sweeping sound waves and infectious hooks. No 2 songs alike, each spectacularly different and moving in their own way. The music depth and versatility is extremely apparent in this album, and apparent upon your first listen. I’m confident you’ll be back for much more.
Quote by American Royalty regarding the track “Hungry”:
“Hungry is one of the first songs that we ever wrote in a live setting rather than a studio. We’re very excited about the way its transitioned into a recorded number, but honestly for us, its always been about that heavy bass hitting you in the chest. So turn it up.”

I’ve been waiting a long time for this. With my heart reasonably tied to the sounds of the UK, part of me squeals with joy when I see one of the young artists pushing the new era of garage come to the states. It means something real; that the music that the UK has been an advocate of for ages now has finally touched down in the US, that the was once behind-the-curve American market for dance music may slowly be catching up. Disclosure, consisting of Howard and Guy, two very young brothers (18 & 21) have quickly risen to the forefront of this kind of sound, and lucky for LA, they headlined an amazing live show at the El Rey to a sold out crowd of costumed enthusiasts on Halloween.
I’m pretty sure something has to be said that every single song they’ve made has been released, and on top of that, they’re all hits. These kids quite literally hopped on to making garage style music after falling in love with Burial’s Untrue two years ago, and ever since then it’s been a whirl of success, with a free EP garnering them masses of downloads & “What’s In Your Head” in every single DJ rotation, radio show, and mixtape this summer.
As everyone was doing some last minute costume prepping before heading to the El Rey that night, I jetted over to the historic venue to have a chat with the boys before the show. Their young faces & Howard’s aside that he misses England were perhaps the only things indicating their age; the boys otherwise spoke and performed as though they were much older. Great guys, pleasant interview, a real treat. Later, after I arrived to the always great Samo Sound Boy‘s set, there was a pleasantness in the air unlike other shows; a kind of unspoken knowledge of the oxytocin-laced, subtle booty-shake set that Disclosure was about to provide. And that’s exactly what it was. After opening with “Control”, the boys worked rather seamlessly together in their live show, leaving perhaps the entire audience with a smile on their face the entire time. Whatever it is they are doing, they are doing it right. I’m very much looking forward to the boundless future of Disclosure, and happily await their return.
Until then, get your digs with the interview, and their very awesome mix for The Fader below.
Our Toronto-based brethren Poupon has taken The Weeknd’s latest single “Enemy” and created an amazing house edit for your late nights. A rolling bassline stays afloat with a haunting vocal pitch, sailing the track straight into the deep end. Grab it below, and start getting sexual.
Round two of Science Sundays is already upon us and what better chemical to bring into the mix than the first one I put in my body this morning? Don’t get any of the wrong ideas guys… just caffeine. There are few things I delight in more (slash find absolutely necessary to have in my life every day) than a joyous cup of coffee, and that in large part is due to its caffeine content. Caffeine, for all you terminology nerds, is a xanthine alkaloid that acts as a acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. OK, so that basically means it’s a stimulant. It perks you up, helps keep you clear and focused, and if you’re anything like me after three cappuccinos, can make you jittery and energetic.
So there we have it. Below are a few songs I enjoy, ones that I find help me wake up in the morning, put my head in a nice and clear space, keep me tapping my feet in my desk chair, and ward off any yawns or feelings of exhaustion of the moment. So if you’re feeling a little groggy on Monday morning, or start slowing down at work in the afternoon, fill up your favorite mug and press play. I promise you’ll be right as rain in no time.
Dim Mak‘s NY transplant Dan Oh has taken up a new alias Brass Fergie – cultivating a wide spectrum of bass-driven sound that saw massive exposure opening the Dim Mak stage @ this year’s Electric Zoo Music Festival. He has teamed up with our mutual friends at THE WELL to bring you a showcase of his new found appeal, featuring an awesome blend of basslines through House, UK Funky, NU-K Garage and Ghetto-tech.

Hi, I’m Laura. A few of you may know me as the discreetly evident “little sis” of the GDD family, but it’s my great pleasure to announce that my newest sisterly duty is helping my lovely bros out with content. Now that Gotta Dance Dirty has a little bit of girl power up on the site (shouts to Tamara & Olyvia…) I figure it’s time to hold things down by presenting my own unique weekly content. Enter Science Sundays. Myself being a mega science-buff (ie: nerd) I’ve always been fascinated by the way both chemicals and music can alter your brain state. Pretty magical stuff, right? They don’t call music a drug for nothing…
Each weekend, I’ll be focusing on one substance and its general effects on the body, but much more importantly I’ll be including a few of my favorite jams that go hand in hand in enhancing or defining the way that particular substance makes you feel.
To kick off the first round of Science Sundays, we’ve got perhaps my all-time favorite neurotransmitter: Oxytocin. Read more & check out the tunes that are reminiscent of the “love hormone” after the jump!
Right now, UK production duo Bondax are, simply put, gettin’ it done. Some might say that the key factor in their current spike in popularity has been their ability to transcend genres. Their original production and remix work has evolved into a diverse, romantic sound that is both fresh and exciting. It’s a seductive sound that puts these two young chaps well beyond their years (Their age is 34…combined).
This time around, Bondax offer up a cool Summer breeze of a remix for another UK act, Seye (pronounced Shey-ah). Seye Adelekan is the younger brother of Gbenga Adelekan from Metronomy. Check out Bondax’s remix of the talented Seye and get on board with some fresh UK vibes.
