Whether you refer to these boys as RÜFÜS DU SOL or RÜFÜS, man do they make a triumphant return.  There has been a bit of radio silence from this Aussie trio since have released some of their biggest, more defining tracks like “Take Me” and “Desert Night.”  Thus, the release of the first single off their sophomore album comes into open arms.  “You Were Right” is a beaute of a track, with some wonderfully ear-piercing synths and a charming melody.  If this is any indication of the rest of the album, we’re in for a treat from RÜFÜS DU SOL.

Markus “Notch” Persson is not only known for creating one of the most popular games in electronic history, but has quickly made a presence for himself in the dance music world by hosting parties around the world with the biggest names in the scene. Amidst last week’s E3 conference in downtown Los Angeles, Notch decided to blow the roof off the gamer gathering and team up with Production Club (masters behind the visual experience of Skrillex, Zedd, Martin Garrix and more) to throw a huge party under a massive dome in the middle of the Los Angeles Coliseum.

The party featured the world’s largest inflatable dome in the world (not kidding – had to be shipped over from India just for one night) and a plethora of projectors to dance visuals across the concave canvas. The visual experience was other worldly, making you feel transported to another dimension.

From the radio waves to the festival stages, Fono‘s house anthem “Real Joy” has been rinsed far and wide this year. The single finally got it’s highly anticipated remix package, flexing a club edit from Duke Dumont, a junglist loving take from TC, and our favorite – a chunky jackin flip from house mogul Chris Lake and mysterious collaborator Rrotik. Lake & Rrotik take the cake on this one, giving the original a fat low end and dicing the vocal into its own instrument. Early support for their remix already comes from Gorgon City, Treasure Fingers, Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Moguai, Danny Howard, EDX, Max Vangeli, Paul Oakenfold, and Fono himself. Listen to the full stream below and download exclusively on iTunes!

Our buds at Point Blank Music School had one hell of a sit-down with Dubfire.  The legendary producer divulged information about many aspects of his career, from his upbringing to his massive career. Specifically, he goes in depth about all of the wonderful technology he has used to make him the music master he is today.  They were absolutely stoked to be joined by him for a Point Blank masterclass – watch the video above and make sure you subscribe to their channel for more tutorials, interviews and live events.

Bijou and Ryan Collins have just teamed up to give away an absolute heater.  BBHMM samples exactly what you think it would.  “Bitch better have my money” flows seemlessly through the tough g-house production, making for a welcome addition to any DJ set.  Bodhi Collective never fails with these dope releases, so make sure to keep an eye on all involved parties for more jams. Download BBHMM for free!

Figgy is no stranger to the GottaDanceDirty feed.  This producers dreamy tunes have a tendency to float just nice through the airwaves, perfect Summer jams.  His latest remix is one of the official sort, for none other than ASTR.  “Activate Me” has seen some noteable remix attention from the likes of Darkchild and LEFTI, but this one is something else.  Super smooth synths dance atop the vocals, get ready for a nice ride.
