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.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (DJ Set), Eats Everything, Catz & Dogz, T.Williams

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. √+
After a swift pickup by Ultra Music, Bondax‘s hit “Gold” has been given the video treatment, featuring a pretty interesting visual interpretation of the original track. In other Bondax news, the Lancaster duo will be working on a debut LP slated for release in the fall on Relentless Records in the UK, so we should be expecting some new singles over the summer.
Had to include this booty along with this post. Too good.
March is by far the busiest, yet most fun month of the year for dance music lovers and professionals. SXSW (Austin) and WMC (Miami) both host tens of thousands of enthusiasts from around the world, and this year we teamed up with our good friends TAVIK, a music driven lifestyle brand designed for active individuals engaged in modern beach culture, for an epic RV road trip across America, hitting stops from Los Angeles to Miami over the course of nearly two weeks, starting Tuesday, March 19th. With our very own GDD DJs Bones, Troy Kurtz, and Burn Unit in tow, we hopped on board a few of our friends’ showcases, as well as presented a couple ourselves. Here’s how it all went down…

Yesterday, VICE announced the launch of their newest platform. An electronic music culture website and youtube channel called THUMP. To kick off the launch they debuted several videos covering artists, music and behind the scenes perspectives – one of which mirrored my post last week on Claude VonStroke at Marquee. Check out the video above to see what it’s like behind the booth and a glimpse into the mind of the master mixer!
Daedelus’ has always been a prominent figure in regards to representing the “weird” end of dance music, aided by his Magical Properties curations on the touring and label front. The latest release on Magical Properties, the Best Night Ever LP from DJ Clap, is an erratic and fast-paced exploration of different musical styles and influences. Along with the release, DJ Clap has also released a music video for the LP’s single “Unbelieveable”. Like the song itself, the video is an insane and frenetic footwork piece. Not for the faint of heart, not for those comfortable with an unforgiving staccato track.
The video is premiering right here on GDD, but for the whole Best Night Ever album, you can go and grab that here and stream it below.
