GDD Premiere


We had the privilege of sharing Crown Ruff’s debut production “Yazz Claasics” a few weeks back.  Today, the Los Angeles-based duo is back with their sophomore effort.  “Fell For You” features some really soulful vocal samples and some really nice precussive arrangements — not to mention the booming bass line.  If these first two tracks are any indication of what is to come from Crown Ruff, we can expect big things in 2015.  Download “Fell For You” at Wavo

A preview of our WMC week in Miami to come, we’re proud to premiere the forthcoming single “Pussé” from Toronto duo RYME. Their Pussé/Time 2 Bump EP is due out March 23 on BNR TRAX (sub-label of BoysNoize Records), and will also feature remixes from the likes of Don Rimini, Sinden, and Cosella. Pussé is jackin, ghetto, and energetic – symbolic of the duo’s love for Chicago House, Detroit techno, and Baltimore club for good measure. Listen below, and pick it up next week on BNR TRAX!

Early support: Anna Lunoe, Crookers, Busy P, Digitalism, Jack Master, Junior Sanchez, Proxy, Ben Mono, Parris Mitchell, and more.



Toolroom has been on a tear with these Miami-centric releases, and we’re happy to snag a piece of the action.  Today, we’re premiering a new track from Joeski — “This Is Acid.”  This upbeat tune is exactly what it claims to be, acid house at its best.  An infectious melody plays along with the crunchy synths, as the eerie vocals repeatedly ensure that this is, in fact, acid.  Enjoy this one, and head over to Toolroom Records to listen to the rest of their Miami compilations.

Montell Jordan - This Is How We Do It (LBCK Remix)
The Long Beach City Kids, aka LBCK, have been taking their brand of funk and soul-infused electronic music far and wide, gaining the trust of thousands for their consistent flow of jams like their contest-winning remix of Galantis’ “Runaway (U & I).” Today, they’ve given us the premiere of their latest effort, a re-imagination of Montell Jordan’s classic, “This Is How We Do It, that showcases their groove-driven, nostalgic sound that works perfectly in a modern context.

In celebration of the release, LBCK gives us some of their own words about their remix, “This tune is a certified classic — one of those jams you just have to vibe to. We’ve been playing this one since we were kids and have always thought it would be cool to throw some more contemporary funk stuff underneath the vocal. Kept it minimal and selective with the bass following the original progression. This is one to roll slow to.”

Munk is a German producer who has been growing steadily over the past years.  Roots in deep house and disco keep his tracks light and refreshing, and his work for Paradisko and Final DJs is really impressive.  Deep groove and spaced out vibes run throughout this production, with a nice chiming melody to keep you engaged.  Throw in a nice fat bass line and you’ve got a sick one for the dance floor.  Stream the track above, and make sure to look out for more from Munk.

Whitney Fierce is a name that you’ll want to be remembering.  A member and touring member of Hercules & Love Affair, she’s no stranger to high class musicianship.  She’s taken her well-rounded musical influence to the decks for a solo effort, lead today by the first single off of the forthcoming “Broken Car Window” EP.  “The Night Air” lies on the darker side of the deep house spectrum, showcasing skillfully crafted percussion elements and a devious bass line.  An accompanying remix from Eric Sharp lightens things up a bit, reworking the track with jackin’ house flair.  The release is capped off with a launch party at Golden Box in Hollywood tonight, the 24th.  She will be joined on the decks by Eric Sharp, Bystander, Give In and Londonbridge — RSVP here.

Shèmce is an awesome, up-and-coming producer from Canada.  His productions are rich and melodic, often incorporating a tropical twist.  For his latest work, a remix of The Weeknd, he delivers a different side of his production portfolio.  The track in question has a bit harder hitting, more club-suited style.  Progressive synths create an uplifting atmosphere, balanced nicely by the dark vocals and tough bass line.  Grab this one for free, and look out for more from Shèmce.

For this GDD™ Premiere, we’re going to slow things down with some future bass vibes from Luca Lush.  This NYC-based producer has put on a clinic of production versatility with his last handful of remixes, and this latest release continues the trend.  Sampling cover vocals from “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” Luca Lush paints an emotional portrait.  The fireworks really start when the bass arrangement kicks in, and some cool melodic chimes are sprinkled in.  Another great tune from this great producer — listen here first, and be on the lookout for an upcoming collaboration track with Dirty Chocolate via alaya.
