Yeah Boy is the infectious new side project from Parachute Youth‘s Johnny Castro. A very recent endeavor, Castro just posted up the first single last month under the new moniker — a piano-laden Pop jam titled “Can’t Get Enough” that you find yourself somehow singing along to after only one listen. The upbeat track will see release October 27th followed up by a full EP promised for this fall.
Castro has put together a nice little minimix for us as well, featuring some of our favorite folks including Julio Bashmore, Chris Malinchak, Rory Philips, and more. Have a listen to the mix and single below.
Miami’s Jordan Postrel first came to my attention about a month ago with his unique, Tech House remix of Richboy’s “Throw Some Ds,” and this week he’s continued on with his interesting choices on remix projects as he brings us a House’d rendition of the 1996 Hip Hop single “Tried By 12” from Brooklyn’s East Flatbush Project. It shows some real creativity to create a remix fully outside of the realm of dance music, and Jordan Postrel seems to be nailing it. Check out more goodies from him on Soundcloud.
As a big thank you to reaching 2000 followers on Facebook and 3500 followers on Soundcloud, our Mexicali G House familia known as Thee Cool Cats wanted to giveaway an original track as a token of their <3 to the fans. These guys have been on a warpath of production, signing releases with Nurvous, Get Physical, Lou Lou and Amine Edge’s label CUFF. The freebie we have for you today samples a classic Ice Cube vocal and suits up house chords into a funky bassline with a gritty ghetto spirit. Grab it below and keep an eye on these dudes!

Our friend Will Eastman just released his Caroline/Rabid EP via GDD™ fav imprint, Main Course, and I can seriously say that I wish “Caroline” had been out when I had my Joshua Tree visionquest earlier this summer. It’s tastefully trippy, using ritualistic percussion and acoustic guitar to round out a great leftfield tune. And the video is the cherry on the trippy top. Watch the video and pick up the EP on Beatport!

Not too much known about these 3 Brits from Northwestern England other than that they’ve caught the ear of Dave Spoon AKA Shadow Child & Kry Wolf for a debut release on their FOOD Music imprint out last month. Makes No Sense‘s Sling EP showcases an array of thumping, bass-heavy House music — right up the audible alley of imprint owner Shadow Child. The 3-track EP has received some serious support for a debut EP, receiving plays from Skream, Benga, Ardalan, Jaymo & Andy George, and many more. I think it’s definitely appropriate to add this trio to the growing list of top House & Bass coming out of England. Pick up the FOOD Music release here and check this mix the lads put together to celebrate their FOOD debut.
Our good homies DJ Skeet Skeet aka Yung Skeeter & Wax Motif have teamed up to do a colossal 2-track EP and we’re getting the exclusive sneak-premiere of the EP’s diabolical techno b-side called “Hush Hush” before its released tomorrow on Dim Mak Records!
Producers YUNG SKEETER and WAX MOTIF join forces on the 2-track release “Next To Me.” Two monstrous sounds collide on this release, packing a double punch with tracks “Next to Me” featuring Nevaeh and “Hush Hush,” bringing forth music that is as brisk as it is fiery hot. “Next To Me” takes listeners on a new high built with an aggressive electro crunch smoothed out by airy female vocals. “Hush Hush” delves into deeper house territory with a pinch of the trademark Dim Mak electro sound.

Today we have an exclusive premiere straight from the UK Underground! Out on September 23rd on the famed MTA Records is the newest EP from British duo Torqux ”So Divine” with vocals by Tiffani Juno. Joining the package is this rad remix by Jus Now, another duo who bring the flavors of both Trinidad AND Bristol to produce this fun, caribbean riddim inspired Drum’n'Bass. Check out both the remix and original below and make sure to pick them up officially on September 23rd!
Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo AKA The Bloody Beetroots ignited the dance music community this summer when it was announced that the gritty Dance Punk frontman had somehow found a way to team up with living legend Paul McCartney through mutual friend, Youth, in a London studio. The nearly unbelievable crossover single matches anthemic stadium rock riffs with Rifo’s inescapable dance mettle — a possible sign of the times for the rapid bridging of old and new music culture.
Rifo didn’t just stop with McCartney. The Bloody Beetroots’ new album, HIDE, out on Ultra Music on September 17th will feature an unheard of amount of top-tier collaboration, including legendary team-ups with Peter Frampton, Tommy Lee, Theophilus London, Penny Rimbaud, and more.
Before the highly anticipated release, however, Ultra is opening the door to some remixes of the album’s most buzzing track tomorrow, and GDD™ favorite Riva Starr has put together a raw, House’d up remix which we get to premiere for you today. Riva keeps Paul’s vocals in there (how could you ever take them away??) and throws in a nice bassline speaking to Riva’s SNATCH! style. Pick up the remixes tomorrow and get HIDE September 17th.
I absolutely loved Wankelmut & Emma Louise’s single “My Head is A Jungle” when I first heard it last January, and now I can’t be more stoked to premiere this remix from Friend Within today! FW gives the track the deep bouncy house treatment with gorgeous haunting vocals that makes it perfect for peak hour clubs or underground warehouses at 6am. Out officially September 15th!
This hot season is winding down but that doesn’t mean the music is cooling off at all… Our aussie friends Yolanda Be Cool have given us the exclusive premiere on their version of Indian Summer’s pumping track “Grand Rapids”, off their recent release Foreign Formula on Sweat It Out! music. The YBC duo loved the original so much they wanted to ‘Rechunk’ that would fit perfect into club sets… DJs don’t sleep on this one!
