Yup. It’s Valentine’s Day. You can love it or you can hate it. Regardless of your feelings towards V-Day, there is one true universal love I think we can all agree on: MUSIC. The music brought forth to you today on The Dirt #106 is music inspired by sex + love + beauty and everything that little heart ♥ symbol represents. Let The Dirt #106 be your soundtrack to this Valentine’s Day and more importantly, this Valentine’s Night.
The Dirt #106 features a hot new Julio Bashmore remix of “Suit & Tie” by JT plus some serious gettin’ down jams by Flume, James Blake and Jessie Ware along with some under-the-cover remakes of classics by Foreigner & TLC. Of course a SLOW JAMZ compilation just wouldn’t be complete without a little somethin’ by The Weeknd.
Berklee College of Music graduate, Matt Lange, might just be one of the next best producers to look out for in my personal opinion. Piqued by his inclusion in Usher’s remix EP on RCA, I investigated Matt Lange and his back catalogue, and I was astonished not only by the amount of work this guy has put out already but the extreme diversity of his sound production. His focus is seemingly similar to that of Seven Lions; morphing Trance, Progressive House, Dubstep, and Glitch in a way that shouldn’t sound good but really, truly does. I encourage you to check out all of his tunes over on Soundcloud, and make sure to give a listen to this incredibly sultry remix of ‘Numb’ below. √+

We love you, Dillon Francis.
A consummate gentleman and production wonderchild alike, Dillon has taken the raw concepts of moombahton and luvstep in the last year and distilled them down into the perfectly polished little gems we know and love today. His latest EP on Skrillex’s label OWSLA is no exception, and we’ve got a first listen of it, with an exclusive download of his new I.D.G.A.F.O.S. 2.0.
