With a big festival week on our hands, we went behind the emerald curtain and into the studio with Hook N Sling to watch him break down his recent remix of The Presets‘ “Fall”. From the synth leads to bassline, from buildup to the drop, watch (above) as the Aussie producer takes the original vocal and sends it straight to the main stage…
Gesaffelstein has put thousands of dollars into the music video for his new single “Pursuit” out today on Bromance, and it really shows. The video accompaniment to Gesa’s Techno tune is done impeccably well, creating an interest matched by a simultaneous uneasiness — making it difficult to look away until the very end. Watch it here and pick up “Pursuit” on iTunes.
The belgian dynamic duo Mumbai Science are back on the scene with another forthcoming 1975 EP on Lektroluv, this time creating a hilarious karaoke like video for the B-side single “Models.” Smiley face censored human beings dance atop uptempo light-hearted techno while an auto-type esque woman’s voice chants out the names of super models from around the world. A really funny video thats probably great for background visuals during sets, check it out above and look out for the release coming June 24th!
Last summer the trifecta of Porter Robinson, The M Machine, and Mat Zo set out on a 2 month bud tour across North America, unleashing not only a wave of incredible music but also reflecting the energy fused from the 3 acts in unison. This 23 minute mini-doc depicts a great tale of life on the road, how everything comes together and how everything came to be.
ALSO – Big shout outs on this to our dear homies The M Machine on this tour who not only are still doing what we know them best for (5:36 – pedestrians hunting out good coffee) but also show everyone that they are their own roadies in every sense of the duty. PLUS – rockin the GDD shirt @ 9:16! When it all comes together, it made for a memorable summer tour that was like no other for these young and talented individuals.
Theo Keating AKA Fake Blood has been given the reins to the 69th episode of the legendary FABRICLIVE mix series, with the launch scheduled for this Friday at the killer London venue with sets from Fake Blood, Boy 8-Bit, and Paul Woolford. The mix CD will be released on the 20th and will feature a grip of new and exclusive material from Keating’s Blood Music. In a different promo twist, Fabric had Fake Blood take to the streets of East London to showcase another great ability of his, graffiti art. Have a look at the video above and watch out for FABRICLIVE 69.
Mystery production duo, SNAKEHIPS, should be on your radar by now with their pre-summer anthem, “On & On,” featuring the creamy vocals from Australia’s George Maple, but if not, the official video has just recently been released and it’s a throwback. Droptops, high tops, blunts, and boardslides characterize this fantastic music video — a perfect visual to a perfect song. √+
Dan Pearce AKA Eats Everything will be kicking off his EDIBLE Tour this weekend in the UK, and the lineups that the jolly gentleman has curated for the 4-date tour this month are nothing short of spectacular. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Catz N Dogz, T. Williams, and Richy Ahmed are just some of the talent joining Eats throughout May, including a blowout last tour stop in his hometown of Bristol. Additionally, included in this teaser video is another new collaboration between Eats and fellow dirtybird, Justin Martin, and it’s too damn good. I overheard that these guys have been making a number of tracks together in the past year, so I guess we’ll see how they end up getting released. I’m getting my hopes up for an LP. This one, “The Gettup,” will be released on dirtybird in early June.
The homie, option4, out of Denver has just sent over a 2-pack of tunes this morning featuring his latest original “Do Work” along with a remix from GDD™ fav Bit Funk. The original tune is straight up solid Tech House with a big time bassline; a track that could’ve fit in nicely to a dirtybird compilation, no doubt. The Bit Funk remix strips away the bassline from the original and elevates the tune with a synth-drenched, uplifting feel. Extremely well-produced, we’re grateful that Option 4 has been kind enough to give both of these fantastic tunes away for free! Grab them below. √+
Well this video is just too damn cute. “You & Me ft. Eliza Doolittle” is the next single from the ever-buzzing duo’s forthcoming debut album due out June 3rd, and the music video to accompany the amazingly catchy track features a youthful couple traveling through Europe before finally making it to a Disclosure show at the end. There’s backflips, 4-wheelers, and a dude getting whacked by a giant dildo. Give it a watch. √+
