This year our favorite festival has a very special addition that we are all very excited to experience. The Yuma Stage is a new feature at Coachella that is stacked with some of the top DJs and legends of the deep house scene. To some this is probably everything you have dreamed of; while to others the names and the music might be unfamiliar. Not to worry though because I have crafted a mix that hopes to encapsulate the vibes played throughout the Yuma the next two weekends. Take a listen to prepare yourself for Coachella’s newest stage. It’s going to be a glorious two weeks!
Tis the season to get sprung, and I present you an hour’s worth of tunes to usher in this lascivious vibe. My selections hop across genres and delve deep into my musical collection, ranging from Skream to !!! to Classixx.
Best wishes & happy hunting.
Up for this week’s edition of the GDD Guest Mix is Kloak, a good friend of mine who with the start of 2013 announced his new musical identity and direction. Having worked in past years under the pseudonym EMU, he shed his dark and deeper dubstep disposition to take a new, housier direction. With that of course comes a new name; thus Kloak was born. Combining a steady flow of new original tracks appearing with an expanded palette for a wide and rich spectrum of house and garage influence tracks, he’s been making strides as Kloak.
You can peep his exclusive mix for us via the SoundCloud stream below, it’s a fast paced juggle of house, garage, and other derivatives of the dancier end of bass music. Tracklist is after the jump, and be sure to stay tuned here at GDD for more from Kloak… oh and in the mean time go peep his own soundcloud here.
This week we drop back into the groove with Mexicali’s burgeoning deep house duo, Climbers. Their guest mix exemplifies how they have been making a name for themselves in the underground with their signature sound that includes a unique blend of “classic house percussions, emphatic bass lines, old school vocal sampling and atmospheric synth pads.” With a forthcoming OFF Recordings release and the launching of their own label with an original track and remix by Frankie Knuckles on the horizon, Climbers show no signs of slowing down.

The dance music prodigy from Santa Barbara, California, Seven Lions, released his incendiary set from his Ultra Music Festival debut at the OWSLA stage on Saturday, March 16th. Through his cohesive, yet incredibly eclectic, set consisting of tasteful Electro-House, Dubstep and everything in between, he was able to provide listeners with a powerful, deep-rooted experience unlike any other. This Seven Lions performance, along with his many more to come, serves to strengthen his highly sought-after appeal by displaying not only his superb music in a live setting, but also his prowess as a DJ.
