Back when I was at college in Virginia I would go to these rad parties in Richmond put on by the Audio Ammo crew. In those days I was just getting into raves and exploring the better side of electronic music and I’d see this kid Cranks DJ around town from time to time. Well fast forward a few years and I’m here in New York and this remix comes through my inbox and lo and behold, it’s Cranks! Last few years must have been good ones, this remix is a high powered house anthem and I’ve been jamming to his remix of Tiga all day! Definitely keep him in view, word on the street say’s he’ll be dropping an EP this summer!
Following up some ace releases on both Main Course and OWSLA in recent months, Denver-based Wuki has announced an all-new download series titled WUKILEAKS, where he’ll be giving away one bootleg a week for the next 9 weeks. He’s kicked off the project today with a breaky, techy rendition of one of my all time favorite high school freak dancing songs — Mystikal’s “Shake Ya Ass.” Give the dude a like on Facebook to get it for free and keep your eyes on GDD for all weekly episodes of WUKILEAKS.

Miami’s newcomer, Jordan Postrel, kicks off the GDD™ Guest Mix series in 2014 with an ace offering. Citing influences like Richie Hawtin, KiNK, Hot Since 82, and Claude VonStroke, he emerges out of underground territory that has helped shape his productions into tracks like his remix of The East Flatbush Project’s “Tried By 12,” among others. Postrel now flexes his DJ talent for an engaging 1-hour mix of house and tech-house that serves as an impressive addition to any mix archive.
Hot off the Beatport chart success of “Paradise,” his collab with Chicago house and techno legend Green Velvet, Los Angeles-based Aussie Craig Williams has been creating quite the buzz for himself as of late with his eclectic releases that span the genres of techno, electro, and ghetto tech. Craig recently reached the 10k Likes milestone on Facebook (and is actually now above 12k!) and also has a birthday coming up, so he decided to celebrate and give back something special to thank all of his old and new fans alike to thank them for their support.

One of the many reasons why I love dirtybird so much is because Claude VonStroke writes little notes about the releases he signs, and this one for Nick Olivetti‘s Looping Machine EP has to be one of my favorites.
I wish everyone was like Nick Olivetti. He sends tons of demos and doesn’t get discouraged if we don’t sign them. He keeps working, keeps getting better and never gives up. He came to ibiza and didn’t get to play at our party because the power went out. Did he complain? No…not a peep.
You would never know from meeting him that he is an accomplished audio engineer with releases on tons of labels from Trapez to Kling Klong to dirtybird. So why cant everyone in the world be as cool as Nick Olivetti? I Don’t know but for me, I’m very happy he turned in these sick bangers, because I want to hang out with this guy some more.
Agreed, Mr. VonStroke, agreed. Check this great new 2-track EP out next week.
The homie Rynecologist revealed his latest track, “B.A.N.,” today; releasing it as part of the Dance Mania tribute compilation on Boys Noize Records that we mentioned last week. Ryne’s offering features some jackin’ Ghetto Tech bass ready for the club, sticking with the overarching direction of the compilation that pays respects to the longtime Chicago imprint run by DJ Funk. Listen below and snag the compilation today on Beatport.
