This Thursday (2/28) marks the start of our new GDD monthly happening in San Francisco called Barbary Coast. After a succesfully preview party last fall, we kick into 2013 with UK house mogul Jesse Rose, bringing his internationally seasoned craft of club music to the intimate space of Harlot nightclub.
Gotta Dance Dirty has teamed up with Bufi to create a truly special night south of the border in Mexico City, hence entitled Borderline. The best talent from around the world in disco, indie-dance, and deep house will be on display at the beautiful and hip Rhodesia. This Thurday we have Moon Boots strait outta Chicago, Pat Lok hailing from Vancouver, Our own Tropicool, & Bufi the Mexico City Local. This is definitely one you don’t want to miss!

Did you somehow miss Wolfgang Gartner on his recent Love & War tour? Well shame on you, nothing beats the live experience…BUT do we have a treat for all those who missed out! We just came across this recording of Wolfgang’s 2 hour live set at the Palladium a month ago and just had to share it with you all!
The set brings back some wicked memories of the night and features several unreleased tracks too. Nothing more satisfying than finally finding out the name of the unknown track that has been stuck in my head for over a month! “Evil Lurks” by Wolfgang and Tom Staar – watch for it at 40min in.
[PIAS] Recordings had humble beginnings. Founders Kenny Gates and Michael Lambot established [PIAS] as a distribution company in Brussels in 1982 before expanding that business into a record label of the same name. Years went by, and more and more music was released and distributed by the company, including an impressive and eclectic roster of talent — Soulwax, Grace Jones, Mr. Oizo, Dinosaur Jr., Royksopp, and many, many more.
To celebrate this milestone, [PIAS] will be giving away heaps of exclusive, unreleased, unheard content from their roster over the past 3 decades, and today, we’re happy to be a part of the celebration as we give away a new, exclusive remix from Frenchman, Vitalic.
Born and raised in LA I’m sure it makes Paris Blohm proud to see his hometown become the epicenter of the burgeoning United States dance music scene. Having been producing for seven years now, he seems to have finally hit his stride professionally and musically, after taking the plunge and committing fully to his career as an artist. The former delivery driver sits down to answer some questions with yours truly about his recent name change, stepping out of the bedroom into a big-time studio, and recurring nightmares about his stint as a delivery driver.
GDD: First thing’s first, as it’s a bit of a GDD™ tradition, what’s your drink of choice?
Paris: A good ice cold sapporo with hot sake. But that’s just picky, whiskey ginger does me well. Continue Reading

I was truly taken aback when I first heard Mosh‘s full-length album Monarchy. I felt like I had time-traveled back to 2007, when French electro acts like Justice and SebastiAn ruled the roost. I remember after Cross dropped a plethora of people began to experiment with DAWs, attempting to recreate those magical rock-inspired French grooves. Now nearly five years later, Mosh has succeeded where most have failed.
Mosh’s album Monarchy is a true full-length album. Mosh has not only managed to make Monarchy listenable in its entirety, but has also made it enjoyable from start to finish. Monarchy encapsulates everything that made 2007 seem so special, throws it into a blender and serves it up cold. The album really has it all: hip-hop inspired house beats, dark distorted bass lines, head-nodding grooves, and most importantly, power.
Mosh was also kind enough to put together an exceptional mix just for you. Both his album and the mix are available for FREE download below.
Grab Monarchy and Mosh’s exclusive GDD mix after the jump!

Today we’ve got an exclusive GDD download of Boy Kid Cloud’s take on the Prince classic “I Would Die For You.” This UK native takes the original and spices things up a bit with bright synths a few well placed horns and a groovy beat. It’s to die for…if ya get what I mean!
