I don’t have that much energy nowadays, but Los Angeles-based techno junkie Modus gives it to me every time. His dark twists on big tracks really stand out in a monotonous river of medicre remixes. Tough tough european-style techno vibes durn Drake’s “Energy” into a dark club knocker. I’ve already heard this one being rinsed around town in Los Angeles, and I have no doubts that this one will be a staple for the forseeable future. Grab the latest from Modus for free below.
The recent collab w/ London young guns Disciples proved to be a tally in the cool column for Calvin Harris, but the nail went in the coffin when Chris Lake delivered his piping energetic flip on the single – giving the deeper driven original a jacking appeal fit for the summer season.

The wild boys of Cut Snake awoke from their disco naps this afternoon to drop a brand new bombshell on us. This time, they’re editing a Hayden James tune, “Something About You.” There’s something very distinguishably shifty about these Cut Snake tracks. Some eyes-low, groove laden house tunes that draw just a bit from techno influences. Needless to say, their production chops keep improving, and I keep continuing to dance to every track they release. Keep it up, boys.
Essentially, Rambo V wanted to put his spin one of the more obscure tracks from Tame Impala’s Currents, arguably one of the best albums of the year. He ended up going with “Nangs,” a showy synth-based track that really lends itself to the house sound. The vocals are hauntingly sampled, seemingly dripping over the jumpy bassline like the acid-influenced cover art. This remix continues Rambo V’s string of extremely unique remixes and original tracks, and displays his versatility as a producer. This tune will undoubtedly be sneaking its way into many-a-poolside sets before the Summer’s end, and you can download it now for free.
Vanessa Elisha‘s track “Down For This” is certainly easy on the ears. Her smooth vocals are seriously seductive, so she’s been the center of a lot of remix attention. The latest comes from producer Palace, and you’re going to dig it. The tune suits the Australian vocalists original track perfectly, expanding upon the future bass/trap vibes that already existed in the track. Really stunning work on this one, a nice balance of beauty and bass. Stream this remix from Palace below exclusively at GottaDanceDirty. Lucky for those who are digging the vocals, Vanessa Elisha has just been added to Paces’ “Hold It Down” tour, grab tickets here.
“I’ve been a fan of Vanessa’s work for sometime and I didn’t hesitate when she approached me to do this. The original Down For This contained lots of interesting sounds and textures to work with, so I created something that retains everything I loved about the original, and added my twist on it.”
Dom Dolla & Go Freek recently released one of the sickest tunes I’ve heard in a minute. “Define” is a vocal backed house slammer that beautifully defines the essence of the overlying label, Sweat It Out! Those vocal stabs and raunchy bassline just don’t quit. One Mr. Nicky Night Time is now joining the pack of remix artists, which boasts a nice collection (Cassian and Curses thus far). His take on the track takes full use of the vocals, chopping and sampling in a really cool way. The bassline drags slowly behind the vocals and jumps quick on the drops. Still can’t get enough of these vocals in either version. Stream this bad boy from Nicky Night Time exclusively here!
I’ve been a big believer in LA’s own Drezo for quite some time now. For many, it seems like this guy came out of the woodwork with that huge “A Milli” edit. Nay! Homeboy has been slinging techno heaters since I was in a Fraternity (thats a long time). Drezo has his own very unique spin on the techno/house marriage. Some of the harder bass sequences you’ll hear dance around stunning production. His latest is a remix of Vice’s track “Find A Way,” and you’ll have to find a way to keep your speakers from exploding when you jam to this one. Think underground. Like waaay underground. Check out the track below and grab support Drezo by grabbing it on iTunes.
It’s no surprise that we were big fans of Hot Chip’s latest album. That boy was a masterpiece. One of the danciest tracks from the record is “Need You Now,” a beautiful fusion of vocals and hauntingly sampled house music. Moonlight Matters just went and made a huge “piano warehouse” remix, and I can’t wait to play this one for all my friends. Stream this one pronto!
“When i first heard “Need You Now” i instantly felt a strong connection with the track, it’s one of those tracks that just grabs your attention and puts you in a distinctive and nostalgic mood,” says Sebastiaan Vandevoorde, better known as Moonlight Matters and one half of house duo Arches.
The original, the second release from Hot Chip’s most recent album Why Make Sense? is a brooding house tune with soulful vocals dripping in and out amidst a sparse, but engrossing musical atmosphere.
“Alex’s magical vocals tones never cease to amaze and that Sinnamon vocal sample is just the icing on the cake of what seems to be the perfect blend. “I already had a clear picture in mind of what I’d do to the track when the Hot Chip boys gave me the opportunity to remix this piece of gold,” says Sebastiaan. “I was a kid in a candy store. I wanted to keep the original mood of the track in tact yet make a very personal reinterpretation upping the energy and the diva factor.”
