With its unique sound plus sweet yet heartbreaking vocals, “Your Drums, Your Love” by AlunaGeorge is one of the finest songs of 2012. The UK duo has been hard at work on their new album, set for release sometime in 2013. In the meantime, AlunaGeorge gives us “Your Drums, Your Love”, complete with a remix package that includes reworks by Duke Dumont (YES), The Prototypes, Deebs and Lil Silva. Check out the crispy, charged up Lil Silva remix below and keep an eye out for the remix package coming out October 15th via Island Records.
Alright all you snarky little fucks, I don’t wanna hear it, OK? We know, we know…you totally jacked “Untouchable” by DeMarzo from Zippyshare like a month ago, thus making this post old news in accordance with the blog/time conversion chart. You know what I say to that? Screw you and your unmastered versions!
No, but real talk though – one of the absolute best pop/RnB tracks of the last decade (Robin Thicke’s “I Wanna Love U Girl”) gets a fantastic rework via the deep, warped and funky mind of DeMarzo. At long last, the full (MASTERED!) EP is available now on Beatport.
DeMarzo has taken a track that is already incredibly deep, sexy + soulful and turned it into something even deeper, sexier + more soulful, which is a feat in itself. Even more bad ass is accomplishing this same feat three more times – with remixes by Kolombo, Sishi Rosch and Amine Edge & Dance it’s aces all around on this brilliant EP.
While Viceroy’s creed may be “Summertime, All The Time”, his latest remix of “Coming Home” by VISITOR seems to capture the essence of end of Summer/early Fall. It’s a synthpop symphony full of emotion filled lyrics, plucky beats and moody organs that isn’t so much feel good as it is just feel. It’s a dance pop anthem that will have friends & lovers weeping with emotion on the dancefloor as it soars above the crowd.
This week’s Dirt is a big one. Not only did we up the ante with FOURTEEN big tunes to give away (that’s two touchdowns worth of tracks); we also have a very special guest contributor from one of our favorite sites/labels. Gotta Dance Dirty is pleased to welcome Nancy Lu from Discobelle as our special guest contributor on The Dirt #86. One look at Nancy’s Twitter account and you’ll see that she’s a big favorite amongst many of our favorite bloggers and artists alike.

GDD™ could not be more pleased to have her on board this week. To top things off, not only is Nancy lending her words, she’s also this week’s Dirt Babe. SCORE.
And now, The Dirt #86 brought to you by Discobelle’s Nancy Lu + aRod…

Anyone who knows about Kastle in turn knows of his passion for R&B, whether it be the influence seen in his production, sprinkling of tracks in his mixtapes or sets, or the great fusion of the two: R&B remixes. After a very successful remix of The Weeknd’s “The Party & The After Party” last year, Kastle takes another bold leap into fiddling with one of the great rising stars in the R&B culture: Frank Ocean. Following Frank’s (deservedly) massive hype over the early release of “channel ORANGE” a few weeks back, Kastle’s “Pyramids” premiered this past Friday during Skream & Benga‘s weekly “beats, bass, and banter” on BBC Radio 1. Thankfully we only had to endure radio rips of the track for one weekend, as today in true bootleg and honorable fashion Kastle’s put it up on his SoundCloud for free download.
Today, Fool’s Gold Records have put out three new remixes of A-Trak & Dillon Francis‘ “Money Makin’” — the feel good summertime jam released back in May. The trio of reworks hit the original from all angles; starting out with a Trap take from Oliver Twizt which adds some big time bass, high hats, and pitched down vocals. Barjo & Alban Lipp go all Electro, readying “Money Makin’” for a big room. Finally, 45 King gets comical — adding in some hilarious samples and a funky background beat. Buy the release on Beatport and stream all 3 remixes below. Continue Reading

Over the years, Au Revoir Simone and Aeroplane have been a formidable tag team, whether it’s Aeroplane giving the remix treatment to the band or the girls lending their vocals to an Aeroplane original. Their most notable collaboration was the classic rework of “Paris” by Friendly Fires. This time around we have Aeroplane contributing a remix (with additional production & mixing by Martin Dubka) for Erika Spring, a solo project of Au Revoir Simone member Erika Forster. The remix is for the tune “Happy At Your Gate” and the result is another classic. The formula of deep electrodisco plus sultry, ethereal vocals is a winning combination…just like Vito + Erika.

Stream all 3 of them and find out which one is my favorite below. Continue Reading
