Anyone who visits GDD™ frequently knows that we are huge fans of FRΞNCH ΞXPRΞSS’ Chris Malinchak. On my Malinchak Appreciation Post a few months back, I referred to him as my 2012 House Music MVP. FRΞNCH ΞXPRΞSS and Mr. Malinchak are back at it with more dazzling freebies. First up is the track “Leaving Tomorrow”, which was released ever-so-kindly as a free download last week via FRΞNCH ΞXPRΞSS. ”Leaving Tomorrow” is a celestial medley of Commodores-sampled vocals chopped up and seasoned over Malinchak’s soulful beats.
The second freebie in the last eight days from Malinchak is the track “Get Back”. There’s no need to try and classify this song into any subgenre. Simply put, THIS IS DANCE MUSIC. “For you homeboys that think you all that, and tryin to get with this” - GET BACK.
It’s time to set the mood for the upcoming months with the next installment of my bi-annual/seasonal mixtape series: aRod’s FallGaze 2012 Mix. The mixtape is chock full of lustful indie grooves, steamy disco + deep, sleazy house. Hot tracks from heavy hitters like Anna Lunoe, Disclosure and Van She along with some unreleased heaters from Benoit & Sergio, MANIK feat. Jeremy Glenn and Sure Thing…this mix should keep you warm and electrified from Fall all the way through Winter.

Whether you’re at work, school, in the car, in your room, getting the party started or winding everything down – jump in the DEEP END and explore a different fathom of electronic music.

Hi, I’m Laura. A few of you may know me as the discreetly evident “little sis” of the GDD family, but it’s my great pleasure to announce that my newest sisterly duty is helping my lovely bros out with content. Now that Gotta Dance Dirty has a little bit of girl power up on the site (shouts to Tamara & Olyvia…) I figure it’s time to hold things down by presenting my own unique weekly content. Enter Science Sundays. Myself being a mega science-buff (ie: nerd) I’ve always been fascinated by the way both chemicals and music can alter your brain state. Pretty magical stuff, right? They don’t call music a drug for nothing…
Each weekend, I’ll be focusing on one substance and its general effects on the body, but much more importantly I’ll be including a few of my favorite jams that go hand in hand in enhancing or defining the way that particular substance makes you feel.
To kick off the first round of Science Sundays, we’ve got perhaps my all-time favorite neurotransmitter: Oxytocin. Read more & check out the tunes that are reminiscent of the “love hormone” after the jump!
If you are any sorts of cool then your Facebook feed currently reads something like this: ___________ (insert friend’s name) and __ others have shared this link. Within 5 minutes of Disclosure posting their new track “Latch”, my Facebook feed exploded with aural elation. And in the first 3 hours since posting this track to SoundCloud, Disclosure’s new song has already been played over 10,000 times. FACT: PEOPLE LOVE DISCLOSURE. And deservedly so. Tender sweet vocals (by newcomer Sam Smith) and deep, romantic UK Pop Bass vibes make this another stunner from Disclosure. The sound of Autumn has arrived.
“Latch” will be out November 5th via PMR.
Our second round of #AskGDD went down early in the afternoon yesterday, and after Steven and Laura had a nice long chat with James from Mad Tech Records, as well as Lakosa, iO, and Pedro123 (Stef, Rob, and Pedro, respectively), we decided not only to transcribe it for everyone who missed it to enjoy, but to continue along and start up a weekly Twitter chit chat with a selection of yours and our favorite artists, record labels, and more. Stay tuned via our twitter and of course with the #AskGDD hashtag every Thursday, where you can follow along or even ask questions yourself!
Our conversation with the group, as well as plenty of jams from them all for you to enjoy (as well as the dope new tunes they talked with us about) all after the jump.
WOW. This is a wicked one. London artists FunkinEven and Fatima have teamed up for one of the coolest, catchiest + freshest tunes of the Summer. FunkinEven’s series of funky + frenzied stutters and bleeps mixed in with Fatima’s sultry + soulful sound not only make this a top tune of the Summer, “Phone Line” is easily one of the top original songs of 2012.
Out now on Eglo.
