I couldn’t have imagined a better way to close out Coachella this year than by watching the Disclosure boys rock the Gobi Tent. Their blistering set was the perfect end to an amazing weekend. The set ended with two special guest vocalists, Jessie Ware on “Running” and Sam Smith on “Latch” (see below). No offense to the Red Hot Chili Peppers or Eric Prydz, but if you weren’t at Disclosure to close out the festival, you were doing it wrong.
Midway through their set, Disclosure announced that they were playing a new track off their upcoming album. The track turned out to be “You & Me” featuring Eliza Doolittle, and despite the fact that nobody in the crowd had heard the song before, it did little to deter them from cuttin’ some serious rug (or in this case, some serious grass). Check out “You & Me” below and get to steppin’.

• November UK Tour Announced! Pre-Sale details here: www.disclosureofficial.com
• Album featuring ‘Latch’, ‘White Noise’ and ‘You & Me’ available for pre order www.disclosureofficial.com

Disclosure are very much unstoppable at this point. Their 2012 was undoubtedly one of the most successful in dance music, and they’re starting off 2013 strong with a new collaboration with fellow buzzing UK duo, AlunaGeorge, titled “White Noise.” The brothers have truly done it again with this one — perfectly balancing Aluna’s vocals atop their becomingly signature sound. Expect to hear this one out quite a bit to kick this year off. It’s due out February 17th on PMR Records. √++
It’s that time of the year, and the magical collaboration between opposite ends of the GDD spectrum join forces once again to create a special hour of magical vibes and seasonal grooves – perfect for traveling, lounging, love-making, acting out or giving in, starting the evening or winding it down. However you spend the holiday this year, let this mix set the ambiance to your festivities. Enjoy.

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.

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.
