After a massive labor day weekend, we jump right back into the week with a new exclusive and giveaway from a fresh breakout duo… Simply put, if you take the Bay-Area bass of the Sweet Leech and the brick city vibes from LittleFoot, you get Velcro; a twist on deep house and nu-wave bass music, based out of Los Angeles. Formed in the summer of 2012, Velcro worked steadily in the studio making tracks playable to almost any crowd. Aiming to bring soul back into modern house music, they hit a bulls-eye right in the center of the dancefloor…
We’ve teamed up with the guys to giveaway their newest track ‘Everybody’ – a culmination of their collective influences driven through crisp analog-based production.
HONEY HIVE COLLECTIVE:
Make sure to check out their collective label project Honey Hive featuring monthly track giveaways from Velcro, Justin Weisburg, Pilo, Sweet Leech, Littlefoot and Sepehr. Head to their soundcloud for more downloads!
If you’ve seen the mighty Claude Vonstroke do his thing lately, the peak of the energy breaks down with a VIP edit of DJ Zinc’s classic Super Sharp Shooter. That edit just happens to be made from the original gem “Hoe Hoe Hoe” by the LA based Wood Holly. This duo of young guns have broken on the scene with a thick 808 booty call – so much that it’s gained the attention and support from other Dirty Bird reps Justin Martin, Kill Frenzy, Ardalan, and Worthy. They’ve jumpstarted the soundcloud hype with (2) free remixes from Lendrick Kamar’s “Swimming Pools” and Dom Kennedy’s “My Tape Of Party.” GET EM.
After much anticipation to finally put this out , I present you with BONESTHE DEEP END – Summer Mixtape 2012, a showcase of some of my favorite deep, tech, bassline, garage and funky house tracks as of current in my sets and for the season. Aside from the big tunes, there is just too much good music out there right now and I wanted to reflect a cooler groove for you to bop to this summer. Enough talking – head to the deep end, and get in over your ears.
*Featuring the music of Cajmere, Justin Martin, Hot Since 82, Shadow Child, Julio Bashmore, Eats Everything, Amine Edge, Pleasurekaft, Nick Monaco & Kill Frenzy, Them Jeans, Disclosure, Zombie Disco Squad and MORE!
Building tremendous anticipation since WMC this march and its debut on Annie Mac’s show last month, Pleasurekraft‘s ‘Skeleton Key’ is out today on Great Stuff Records. With the help of house legend Green Velvet (aka Cajmere), The haunting tech house of Pleasurekraft take on the bouncey vocals of Green Velvet and create a rollercoaster ride bigger than either of them probably expected. This is one of my top tunes for the year already as well as coolest collaboration yet. I strongly suggest you pick up this tune on beatport, plus check out more of Pleasurekraft and Green Velvet below!
Sorry for the brief Dirt hiatus folks. We’ve been all over the grid lately — Detroit, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas, etc, but now we’re back on track and ready to bring you 10 tracks all for download each Thursday here on out. This week, I’ve teamed up with the youngest member of our family, Toks, for an eclectic collection of tunes that should tickle a bit of everyone’s fancy. Get into it. Continue Reading
Since the beginning of 2012, the Toronto-based Grandtheft has been sequentially treating its crowd to some cream-of-the-crop edits and remakes of tunes. Ranging from 128 to moombah, the 6-track bundle features DJ-friendly party versions of Duck Sauce, The Martin Brothers, Sinjin Hawke, Grandmaster Melle Mel, Skeet Skeet, and even Justin Bieber.
Okay so I’ve been hoarding this since I was lucky enough to receive a promo after WMC, but for all that don’t already know – Daniel Pierce aka Eats Everything is back in the spotlight with his incredible follow up Jagged Elbow EP on Pets Recordings. The Bristol native exploded onto the record label last year with the massively supported ‘Entrance Song,’ earning him a BBC Radio 1 Essential mix and a capture into the DirtyBird family by label chief Claude VonStroke. The big man since then has been busy at work with tour dates across the world and stunning remixes setting him a cut above any other on their respectable releases (not to mention his production as one part of the duo Waif & Strays).
Officially released on Monday, the Jagged Elbow EP first features a-side ‘Jagged Edge’ – a darker toned blend of weighty bassline with haunting vocals, pinched guitar riffs and wet brassy chords . The b-side ‘This Elbow’ (originally titled ‘Food’ during WMC haha) is a more low end driven bouncy bass tune with uptempo hat swings and bobbing chord stabs to the spirit of soulful house music.
As if the EDM acts coming out of France weren’t killing it already, another French outfit called Club Cheval (Canblaster, Myd, Sam Tiba & Panteros666) is quickly making its mark in this competitive industry as one of the most radical acts of the moment. In the midst of their upcoming EP on Bromance Records, the four-piece monster group just released an exclusive preview in mixtape form for Dazed & Confused Magazine. The tape features their very first original track. Download free!
