Tropicool is known for his extensive and carefully curated tracklistings always curating a very special & intimate vibe with just the right amount of funk. This tape in particular transitions from funk, into piano driven sexy house, and ends with some very deep tones sure to have you swimming in your own puddle. Deeper than his previous work, but just as infectious, this one is perfect served with a whiskey and reserved for an intimate occasion. Enjoy responsibly.
It’s Thursday, which means another 10 free tracks to put in your pocket from your friends here at GDD™. This week, aRod and I have gathered a diverse selection for you with originals, remixes, and edits all making an appearance. Make sure to hit the zip downloads to grab them all and feel free to browse by previewing each track on the Soundcloud players below.
Just yesterday I was listening to RAC‘s new remix on the Verve Remixed compilation and thought to myself, “It’d be really nice to hear an original from André to see what he’s been up to other than remixes lately.” Well, the cosmos have given a quick reply to my internal question, as the preview to the new single from RAC was posted to Soundcloud this morning featuring vocals from Bloc Party’s Kele and New York duo MNDR. “Let Go” is a summery Pop jam, with a tropical feel and lovely male/female vocal interaction. Looking forward to hearing the whole thing when it’s released next Tuesday.
Apologies for the hiatus, friends. Last week that evil siren Vegas clutched the GDD™ crew tightly in her grasp and forbade us from blessing your ears with that week’s dosage of The Dirt. Alas, here we go, with ten tracks curated by our own Troy Kurtz & Burn Unit, fresh off two killer sets aboard the GDD™ Presents: Wide Awake Art Car Stage at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas. Get it into you.
CHVRCHES are set to come out with a new single soon and have commissioned the help of Groundislava to work his magic on their electro pop anthem, “Gun.” He brings a jungle/island house sounding vibe to the break and amplifies the danceability to the track with a pumping hi-hat loop that will have you up on your feet in no time. You can pre-order the new Gun EP itunes in the U.K. but no official date on a release for the U.S.
For this week’s Artist Collab series for The Dirt, I’m very excited to be teaming up with one of the baddest DJs on the planet, Anna Lunoe. Along with her sorcery on the decks, Anna is a phenomenal producer, she has serious remix game, her apparel line rocks, she kills it all across social media & pretty much dominates at life.

Future Classic‘s own, Touch Sensitive isn’t a sound, it’s a feeling. It’s served frothy, always smooth, and imported strait from down under. With a wardrobe only to match the intricacy of his sounds, a beautiful music mosaic is formed. Ascending and descending melodies paired with funky bass will have you cruising in the sun-kissed rays in no time. It’s time to eat some pizza, get sensitive, see sounds, and listen to colors because when this tape is over, you’ll swear you might have drank a little too much of that serotonin smoothie.
Oh, did i forget to mention this is the solo project of Mikey from Van She?

Sweet, Sweet, disco nectar delivered strait to your door. This sun-kissed ultra funky mix mutates & cultivates the vibes of Tropicool‘s essence in the South Bay. Everything is in full bloom, the birds, bees, and the myrts feel it. The sand is warm and the micheladas are frosty. Poseidon is holding a conch shell to his ear, and the vibration station is starting to reverberate. Perv and swerve, because for this one, you’re meant to loose control while on cruise control.
Exclusive Tracklisting After Jump
Earlier this fall Jerome LOL set out on a West Coast tour with Classixx, Cosmic Kids, and RAC for some of the most infectious summer time music when everyone was having summer withdrawals. Classixx were a crowd favorite, and then “Holding On” surfaced late last month and the internet was abuzz with this summertime sensation. It would appear Jerome couldn’t get the song out of his head, along with everyone else who heard these endorphin packed vibes, as he set out to create this remix for them. It does a great job of building and resolving into the original chords as his minimalistic percussion patterns create a comfortable dance environment for you to get down to. Out digitally and 12″ on April 2nd on Leisure Recordings, be sure to make sure your spring playlists are as forward as they can be with this summer time anthem.
