A preview of our WMC week in Miami to come, we’re proud to premiere the forthcoming single “Pussé” from Toronto duo RYME. Their Pussé/Time 2 Bump EP is due out March 23 on BNR TRAX (sub-label of BoysNoize Records), and will also feature remixes from the likes of Don Rimini, Sinden, and Cosella. Pussé is jackin, ghetto, and energetic – symbolic of the duo’s love for Chicago House, Detroit techno, and Baltimore club for good measure. Listen below, and pick it up next week on BNR TRAX!
Early support: Anna Lunoe, Crookers, Busy P, Digitalism, Jack Master, Junior Sanchez, Proxy, Ben Mono, Parris Mitchell, and more.

All hail the the dark lord of Gore-Tex and techno. The mind behind Healthgoth is back again with the third installment of his guest mix series. Commanding the decks this go round is New York-based Black Asteroid, whose dark productions serve as the perfect backbone for the mixtape. Four-to-the-floor tech beats line this one from start to finish, and could serve as some nice background noise to break in a new pair of black-on-black Air Max 90s. Enjoy the mix along with free download, and keep your eye out for more from Healthgoth.

2014 was a pretty mental year for dance music, and it warms our hearts to see the sudden explosion of house music catching on here in America. With acts like Disclosure, Duke Dumont, and Clean Bandit getting Grammy nominations, it’s safe to say we’re in for a wild ride in 2015.
Here’s my 60 minute take on the last 12 months that features music from Oliver Heldens, Gorgon City, Maceo Plex and much more.
Best wishes in the new year!

GDD has teamed up with Healthgoth.com to bring you a definitive soundtrack for your workouts. We’ve enlisted some of our favorite DJs and producers to make mixes for you to blast in your headphones to help drown out the Top 40 and help you finish that last rep. The first installment came correct from Philadelphia street bass god Starkey, and we’ve enlisted the help of the Brazilian power-duo, Mixhell, to bring you an hour of thrashing techno that includes new heat from Barnt, Brodinski, and a host of others to get you sweating.
What better way to start off the week than with a serving of French techno. The Fake Music label boss Yoann Feynman has teamed up with Monomotion to give us the banging “Gaza”. Driven by a sinister bassline that would have fellow countryman Gesaffelstein proud, it takes a cinematic approach with a tension-building breakdown that begs for a Ryan Gosling car chase a la ‘Drive’. The Parisian based artists are crossing the pond to set up shop in LA in 2015, so expect to see a lot more from the Fake imprint.
A seven year break between full length studio albums has left Joris Voorn fans, myself included, hungry for new material. Because Joris is such a quintessential figure across the deeper shades of electronic music, it was difficult to predict some centerpiece sound in his latest project. That being said, I began listening to Nobody Knows with an open mind for anything. What I found was a breathtaking marriage of electronica and instrumentation — full review after the jump.
