We like to consider ourselves Zhu connoisseurs here at GDD, yet somehow the Grammy nominated producer keeps on surprising us.  Like Kaytranada before him, Zhu has become the latest big name producer to collaborate with GoldLink.  With his own project originally based around the motif of anonymity, it seems fitting that the up-and-coming rapper would find himself aligning with the Zhu camp. The track, a reworking of “Paradise Awaits,” is tailored to accommodate both a stunning verse from GoldLink, and more Zhu vocal work.  Production, falsetto, Sisqo covers, is there anything this dude can’t do?

skrillex boomrat playlist

Over the past week, we’ve seen an awesome union between our friends at Boomrat and OWSLA.  Exclusive playlists from the likes of The M MachineValentino Khan and Yogi have paved the way for the grand finale: Skrillex.  Nothing needs to be said of his prowess in all things electronic.  Check out his curated collection of tunes that covers everything from melodic bass cuts to Drake.

After setting the internet ablaze last week with his New Slaves Routine, Craze is back with a new track called ‘Bow Down’ that features the Dade County legend, Trick Daddy. While his talent on the decks is indisputable, his foray into the production world is now well solidified with this tune. There’s a palpable level of anger in both the routine and track, and it’s clear that the DMC champion is making strides to educate a generation of dance music fans that there’s more to DJing than just pressing a button and dancing around stage like an idiot. Look for this track to drop soon on his label, Slow Roast Records.

“Dirtybird’s 10 year anniversary is creepin up which is crazy. Can’t believe the label’s been doing its thing for 10-years. I wish I’d been in on it since I was 11, but I was getting down to jamz like this at the time so I can’t really complain. With Halloween coming up, this just had to happen….”Justin Jay
