Los Angeles producer (and GDD homeboy) Falcon Punch has teamed up with New York mystery producers PIXELATED on the brand new track “Flying High”.  Here’s what Avery Henderson, aka Falcon Punch, had to say about the song:

“This song has been in the works for a long time and finally came together when I teamed up with NYC based producers PIXELATED to finish it up adding guitar, bass and several other elements to tie it all together.”

And how beautifully it all does tie together.  The combination of soothing Baelerica & mesmerizing Nina Simone sampled vocals are sure to keep you in a trance for whatever journey you may be on.  Whether it’s a top down, cross-country drive, a sail across the sea or a plane ride above the clouds, this song will most certainly keep you “Flying High”.

Needy

What more can we say about Pat Lok that we haven’t said already?  He’s well respected amongst his peers as well as all the big name blogs, he kills it at social media, has extensive knowledge of the NBA & is an all around good dude.  Included in that all around game is his ability to produce quality tunes.  Whether it’s his remix game or his original production, Pat Lok is always on point.  His 2014 hot streak continues with his latest track, “Needy”.  ”Needy” is a Deep Disco/Tropical House tune that manages to capture both the light and the dark.  There’s no denying what a sexy track this is.  Late Summer night sexual energy.

“(Everyday and night) I need you baby”

“Needy” is out NOW on Beatport via MANI/PEDI & includes remixes by Robotaki & Ekali.

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.

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.

Check out Anna’s picks of some of her hottest tunes of the moment and what she has to say about them.  Together we bring you a 10-pack of ultra cool, hot new jams, a handful of which you can grab for FREE!

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?
