Last month, HeavyRoc Music released the first single ever from new Brooklyn duo, Follow Me, and the vocal Nu Disco jam has received some serious attention over the past 3 weeks, racking up almost 90K plays already via the guys’ Soundcloud. Today, we’ve teamed up with our pal Rogue Vogue over in Chicago who has put his unfailing, magical touch on “Something About You,” with signature Rogue Vogue House vibes and deep vocal cuts. Pick this one up and get out in the sun this weekend. √+
With a big festival week on our hands, we went behind the emerald curtain and into the studio with Hook N Sling to watch him break down his recent remix of The Presets‘ “Fall”. From the synth leads to bassline, from buildup to the drop, watch (above) as the Aussie producer takes the original vocal and sends it straight to the main stage…
The belgian dynamic duo Mumbai Science are back on the scene with another forthcoming 1975 EP on Lektroluv, this time creating a hilarious karaoke like video for the B-side single “Models.” Smiley face censored human beings dance atop uptempo light-hearted techno while an auto-type esque woman’s voice chants out the names of super models from around the world. A really funny video thats probably great for background visuals during sets, check it out above and look out for the release coming June 24th!
The duo donning Storm Trooper masks known as Lazerdisk Party Sex have put together a remix for GDD™ fav, Keys N Krates, for the forthcoming Treat Me Right EP out on Dim Mak Records June 11th along with additional remixes from Thugli and Grandtheft. Chad and Zack (of LDPS) utilize Moombah drums to open up a chopped, Pop-oriented vocal from Keys N Krates, creating a catchiness reminiscent of their big hit with Diplo, “Set It Off.” Preview it here first.
Premiering here on GDD™ this morning is DC trio, Volta Bureau‘s, remix of our mate Goldroom‘s springtime tune featuring Mereki titled “Only You Can Show Me.” The original saw its release back in March on Vitalic Noise, and Volta Bureau have put together a great, funky rendition to switch up your tracklist for the summer.

While the commercial dance music sound seems to still be sweeping across the United States like a swarm of locusts, there is an unbelievable amount of tasteful House, Garage, and Bass coming out of the UK, more specifically London, at the moment. Duke Dumont, Bicep, George Fitzgerald, and Dusky should ring a few bells, and there’s a new duo that needs to be included on this list, and they go by the name of Toyboy & Robin. With a solid foot in the House realm, another foot in Bass, and an elbow in R&B, Toyboy & Robin have created a perfect equilibrium of their sound — catchy, grooving, and undeniably danceable. On that note, the gents have put together an impeccable mix for us today, featuring the aforementioned Londoners as well as Nicolas Jaar, Toro y Moi, Todd Edwards, and many more. One of the better mixes I’ve heard in a long time. Make sure to keep an ear out for Toyboy & Robin’s April release “Jaded” in here as well. Top tune. √+

Zone Music is a haven for modern Techno. The imprint’s founders, Gesaffelstein & The Hacker, have carved somewhat of a niche alongside their fellow Frenchmen over at Bromance Records, pushing for the cutting edge, bouncy, bassy Techno that we’ve all learned to love. Forthcoming on Zone is a 3-track EP from Maelstrom — a promising young producer from the West coast of France with previous releases on Sound Pellegrino, dirtybird, and BNR Trax. The title track of the Resistance EP that we’re premiering today fuses a love of Detroit Techno fundamentals with a new age French twist, providing for a uniquely indefatigable production. Preview “Resistance” below and pick up the release on May 29th. √+
This just in from OWSLA’s NEST: funky vocal samples with a futuristic deep groove and heart-palpitating drum patterns from the enigmatic LA duo Phantoms. We have the free download for you after the jump, as well as where to hear the entire EP first. ”Do Yer Thang” is reminiscent of TJR‘s dirty funk or maybe even Dirty Tennessee. Skrillex‘s OWSLA continues to reach– and deliver– for the future, with a range of talent that refreshes fans of bass, funk, and electro alike.
