Next Wave Records has been somewhat quiet for the past weeks, after a slurry of releases from Price Fox, Manilla Killa, Taches – to name a few. The latest is an hour-long mix from the label poster boy Jerry Folk. Titled his “Underground Favorites,” this mix features a selection of some mid-to-uptempo groovy house tracks. Very on point with his own productions, this one has Jerry Folk written all over it. It’s available for free download, so snag this one right now. Tracklist after the jump.
I’ve always spoken of Amtrac’s ability to release killer tracks at an alarming rate, but this is just getting ridiculous. Coming off of a track for Acura and the official release of his “Those Days VIP” mix, we’re now getting this rewokring of “Paradigm.” Amtrac’s “Temptation” mix is certainly that, featuring an absolutely infectious-yet-simple melody, perfect vox sampling and that upbeat house vibe we’ve come to expect from the producer. Stream this one now, and prepare for whatever comes next from this guy.
Los Angeles-based producer Lonely Boy has blasted onto the scene with some ridiculous heaters over the past months. His previous EP coming from Desert Hearts Records, he opted to go with Armada Deep for his latest — “Everything.” And this track literally does have everything — dreamy vocals, infectious melody, and a brain rattling bass arrangement. Everything you’ve come to know and love from Lonely Boy is packed up in this tune, so go grab your copy now.
Last year, France’s Watermät broke through with his hit, “Bullit,” that was one of the biggest tracks of the summer, and now he’s back with a new collaboration with Germany’s TAI as a follow up. Each of them have their own individual sounds, but when they’re fused together, the result is this firing new tune, “Frequency.” Combining driving grooves with big-room appropriate elements, the pair seem to have created a versatile house tune that can crush a festival, just as hard as a club. Have a listen to “Frequency” here – it’ll be released next Monday, March 30th via Spinnin’ Records.
It’s finally here. After a long weekend closing out Beyond Wonderland and making their way to Miami for Ultra, GTA dropped their new EP. Titled Death To Genres Vol. 1. The 7-track EP is filled with originals and collaborations featuring some major players and influences from every genre. The Miami-based duo lived up to the title of their EP, breaking the barriers set that producers should be one-genre only. Released today as part of the EP, their single “Red Lips” starts out downtempo and hypnotic then segues back to their roots with a massive trap, bass-heavy drop. Available on iTunes, grab your copy of Death to Genres Vol.1 and check out “Red Lips” below!
Say hello to Crown Ruff, a Los Angeles-based producer duo who are making their debut today with “Yazz Claasics.” Super smooth synths and a bouncy melody cast a nice backdrop for their first release. Effortless vocal samples create a bit of depth in this 4/4 heater, which could easily serve a purpose in a upbeat or darker tech set. Moral of the story: Crown Ruff is definitely here to stay. Download the track below.
Dr. Fresch has become a regular here at Gotta Dance Dirty; making a name for himself in the LA dance music scene with his unique future infused g-house brand. His latest track is a fully original production featuring hip-hop vocals from Thewz. In “Walk That Talk”, Dr. Fresch showcases just how far his production skills have come with perfectly crafted rolling hi-hats, a thumping bassline, and a four on the floor beat that make this track fully club ready. Grab the free download here and be on the lookout for more Dr. Fresch releases this spring.
Modern day Electro Pop queen Jess Glynne gets the remix treatment from Le Youth on her latest single “Hold My Hand”. The remix package for “Hold My Hand” is stellar with additional remixes by MJ Cole & Chris Lake (the latter was featured HERE last week on GDD). Le Youth slices up the original & delivers a glittery House music hoedown. Le Youth’s remix offers up nothing but feel-goods with its steady dose of bouncing piano & well placed vocal chops. It’s the perfect track to post on the first day of the equinox…Spring begins NOW.
Amtrac has proven himself to be one of the sickest and most versatile producers around. From the heavier side of house tracks, to more progressive ones like today’s release, this guy can do it all. His latest is called “Broadway,” and it definitely showcases a softer side of the producer. Simple vocal samples play along with a light and airy synth arrangement, making for a really pleasant track. This was made for — of all things — a playlist for Acura, which also includes tracks from Plastic Plates, Bit Funk and more. Download the whole collection below.
