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.

Jesse Rose is not new to the label game. After initiating his first label Front Room over 10 years ago, he’s since seen the growth of two more labels: Made To Play and Play It Down. With Made To Play being a major facet during the 2009-2010 era of “fidget house” (as well as the home to REAL tropical house like Round Table Knights’ “Calypso”) and Play It Down making a name for itself amongst underground kingpins like Oliver Dollar, Davide Squillace, Matthias Tanzmann, Guti and more, you would think Jesse Rose would lie comfortably amongst his multitude of successes. But this is not the case, and now we see him restlessly launching his newest label venture: A-Sided. After announcing just over a week ago, we already know the first release is coming in the form of a collab between himself and Claude VonStroke, there’s two launch parties coming up in Los Angeles and Miami, and things are moving quickly.
We’re proud to be a part of the label’s launch party in Miami this year, a daytime jaunt with a stacked lineup of some of house music’s most highly-regarded heavyweights. Jesse Rose and Claude VonStroke will be doing an exclusive back-to-back set, and joining them are Junior Sanchez as his A-Sided pseudonym IMIURU, Roger Sanchez as S-Man, Oliver Dollar, Ardalan, Christian Nielsen, Brillstein and special guests.
Gotta Dance Dirty will be holding an exclusive contest for a chance to win up to 5 guestlist spots for you and your friends, as well as a line of tequila shots for all of you to be shared with Jesse Rose and Claude Vonstroke. All you have to do is tag your friends in the comments and we’ll pick a winner by Friday, March 20th.
See you on the dancefloor.

Early support: Anna Lunoe, Crookers, Busy P, Digitalism, Jack Master, Junior Sanchez, Proxy, Ben Mono, Parris Mitchell, and more.
UK house legend T. Williams has been creating quite a bit of buzz for his forthcoming EP. Today, he released a single with another legend, MJ Cole. Featuring a big bounce from Cole’s technical prowess on piano, this track is absolutely brilliant. Near perfect in it’s arrangement and percussive elements, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better representation of piano-driven UK house greatness. Keep your eyes pealed for the official ’Acoustic Treatment’ EP release on 4/12.
Our favorite Parisian, Zimmer, paired up with fellow Frenchman, Pallace, for a new track titled “Saturday Love”. The track is an homage to classic piano House & a re-jiggle of the mid-80s Charelle classic of the same name. The result is both modern & throwback. Pool party goers & festival attendees will most certainly be praising the spiritual vibe of “Saturday Love” this sun-drenched season as Aria Lanelle’s vocals soar above many pool party dance floors & festival crowds this season in gospel-like fashion.
If you’re looking for some dark, late night techno — look no further. Local Los Angeles DJ/Producer Modus is here to satisfy all of your crunchy dance-floor stomping desires with his new remix for Late Night Alumni. Haunting chord progressions serve as a backdrop to a heavy bass line and jackin’ percussive elements. Let the ethereal vocals guide you through this 8 minute voyage. Enjoy!
