Ninety-nine. We’re one Dirt away from that magical century mark. But before we get there, The Dirt #99 is what’s happening NOW. It’s the latest killer tracks all in one place: a Jesse Rose remix of Duke Dumont’s “The Giver” (with female vocals!), The Chromatics covering New Order, a MASSIVE Italo/French House remix of Estelle’s classic “American Boy”, a new GLOVES remix, a new Monarchy track, that Disclosure remix of Artful Dodger (the exclamation point on a stellar year for the Disclosure boys) and more. Peep the tunes below + grab that hot (FREE) ten pack of tracks! And don’t forget your 99 Red Balloons on the way out…
The Dirt #99:
Bondax continue to push the Future envelope with their latest remix of “Not Giving In” by Rudimental. The original of “Not Giving In” is a mixture of poppy soul and drum & bass. With their remix, Bondax takes things to a whole other Bondaxian (yup, that’s a word now) level. While still maintaining the track’s original, soulful groove, Bondax’s piano poppin’ remix is full of Future bounce and strategically placed bass making it another winner for our favorite, young UK duo. OK, second favorite.
A few weeks ago we had a massive twitter interview with MadTech Records and their latest slew of artists: Lakosa, iO, and Pedro123. The man behind the scenes at MadTech, James, was an absolute pleasure to speak with and has continued to deliver some lovely tracks in our inboxes. So, when he shot us over the announcement of MadTech’s sublabel, MTDL, which will be pushing free music downloads, I quickly jumped on it. Awesome music… for free? Consistently? Sounds like a win.

The deeper half of Dave Spoon aka Shadow Child has been on a warpath since his emergence in 2012. With an already incredible roster of production done this year, Shadow Child takes his new remixes for a ride: to the jungle for A-Trak & Zinc‘s “Stingray” and to the deep end for Miguel Campbell‘s new “Rockin’ Beats.” Both out on October 15th – do NOT sleep on these.

Kastle and Jason Burns, two artists already with releases on Kastle’s own Symbols imprint, have officially joined forces to create an EP together, which just dropped this week. Having both been pushing such a similar sound and style and influence with their music, it comes as no surprise to either them nor the listeners that a collaboration came about.
Lots of UK vibes on this one, a mixture of upbeat vibes and synths with tropical and deep drum patterns; a true variety of musical tinges that the two artists specialize in. Oh, and is that Chris Brown I hear sampled in “Don’t Believe?” You can stream samples of the EP below via Symbols’ SoundCloud and the entirety of “Somebody” via YouTube after the jump.
Dim Mak‘s NY transplant Dan Oh has taken up a new alias Brass Fergie – cultivating a wide spectrum of bass-driven sound that saw massive exposure opening the Dim Mak stage @ this year’s Electric Zoo Music Festival. He has teamed up with our mutual friends at THE WELL to bring you a showcase of his new found appeal, featuring an awesome blend of basslines through House, UK Funky, NU-K Garage and Ghetto-tech. Definitely a great mix for to get you through the day, kick off the night, or just wind everything down.

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!
The UK teen duo, Bondax, put their smooth, groovin’ sound to AlunaGeorge‘s “You Know You Like It.” They’ve added a fresh, more up-beat feel to the track, which is quite suitable for the start of the weekend. Even Annie Mac would agree since she featured it on her show last week. So forget about everyone at EDC, and enjoy the great tune (and free DL) after the jump.
