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.

Listen below and pick it up here.
Our good buddy & hometown Orange County hero, Kedd Cook, just dropped off his newest single entitled ‘Don’t Talk, Listen‘ accompanied by a stellar winter mix. This kid crushes on the tables, knows how to throw quite the party, and we’re more stoked than ever that he’s starting to produce more. Flawless taste, some nice snares, and deep tones make this a truly special experience inside and out. Get lost in his curated oblivion of sounds.

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.
Harvard Bass says in life you must “Stay True”… to who you are. And in this case “Stay True” to the music you live and love and then release it on a label that has never wavered.
After slaving away in the studio this year, our friend and favorite Victor Hugo aka Harvard Bass is set to release his debut album STAY TRUE this Monday, November 25th. It was a no-brainer for him to choose Relief Records as it’s home, the Chicago-based label owned by techno legend Green Velvet (whom he has collaborated with on ‘Lazer Beams’, ‘Kickin It’, ‘Sinkhole’ and his forthcoming ‘Bucket Boys’).
Starting tonight in San Diego, Harvard Bass kicks off a series of parties to celebrate the album dropping next week. Each party is planned to have several of his friends and special guests play sets, which is making for some exciting lineups all weekend long. The best part – ALL PARTIES ARE FREE!
11.21 – The Office – San Diego, CA
11.22 – La Mija – Tijuana, MX
11.24 – Los Globos – Los Angeles, CA

Twin Turbo, the baby brother to Tiga’s legendary Turbo imprint, readies their next release with Phil Kieran. Kieran oozes class on this EP with carefully pitched sonic noises and the kind of tight percussion that’s fit for a dark warehouse. This package sees the re-release of Saturdays, a track that made its rounds on the festival circuit this summer after it saw a release on the Turbo Miami Lifestyle compilation in March. The standout track for me on the release comes from the Polish duo Catz ‘N Dogz, whose take on Saturdays is a chunky, behemoth of a track that left me with sweaty palms and a mildly uncomfortable feeling of nausea and slight euphoria, which is exactly what you want in a techno track. Pick up the full EP when it drops on November 18th.
Londoner Katy B continues her reputation as an über-talented vocalist and top collaborator with this latest offering produced by Berlin’s George FitzGerald who has had a banner year with releases on Scuba’s Hotflush & Defected along with an Essential Mix back in January. “I Like You” features Katy’s full-bodied vocals atop Fitzgerald’s complementary groove in a near perfect manner, making me hope that the two match up again in the studio sometime in the future. “I Like You” will act as the B-side to Katy’s 5 AM which will see release on November 5th here in the US. √+
