Ever since one of our favorite dirtybirds, Justin Jay, dropped his Momentum EP on Pets Recordings just months ago, we knew it was going to be a fantastic year for LA native. In the midst of recent announcements for TomorrowWorld, Dirtybird Campout, CRSSD Festival, and Holy Ship 2016, Justin is coming through with his long-awaited collaboration with Chris Lorenzo that’s been dubbed “Storm.” Driven by both breakbeat and four-on-the-floor rhythms, this outstanding track showcases a hybridized sound featuring West coast and UK vibes for a perfect transatlantic offering. Listen to the track below and download it here via the tastemaker label, Black Butter Records.

Bee’s Knees are one of the grooviest duos in the production world right now, and it seems like they keep getting better with every track.  Their latest is a nu-disco killer featuring the seductive vocals of Monogem and a super serious saxophone sample.  The instrumental melody invokes a feeling of the laidback jazz vibe, then the disco-inspired synths turn things up a notch.  Download the track for free here.

down for this palace remix

Vanessa Elisha‘s track “Down For This” is certainly easy on the ears.  Her smooth vocals are seriously seductive, so she’s been the center of a lot of remix attention.  The latest comes from producer Palace, and you’re going to dig it.  The tune suits the Australian vocalists original track perfectly, expanding upon the future bass/trap vibes that already existed in the track.  Really stunning work on this one, a nice balance of beauty and bass.  Stream this remix from Palace below exclusively at GottaDanceDirty. Lucky for those who are digging the vocals, Vanessa Elisha has just been added to Paces’ “Hold It Down” tour, grab tickets here.

“I’ve been a fan of Vanessa’s work for sometime and I didn’t hesitate when she approached me to do this. The original Down For This contained lots of interesting sounds and textures to work with, so I created something that retains everything I loved about the original, and added my twist on it.”

Jesse Rose has been at the forefront of the ever-expanding electronic scene, championing house and DJing around the world for ten years now. The success of his breakout single “Asided” in 2005 saw him gain global accreditation, and over the years he’s released hundreds of tracks, kickstarted House’s integral part of Berlin’s famous Panorama Bar, opened four record labels, produced the likes of Hot Chip to Chiddy Bang, remixed everyone from Metronomy to Childish Gambino, and DJ-ed damn near every one of the world’s greatest clubs.

So, naturally, being the timely persons we are, when we saw he was deep in the middle of a worldwide tour following the start of his fourth and latest imprint, A-SIDED, we couldn’t help but want to catch up for an interview. Keep reading for Jesse’s updates on the label fronts, his savvy travel tips, life in Ibiza residencies, and more.

Jesse’s latest release comes from the legendary Alex Gopher in the form of a remix for his last single “Touch ‘N’ Tease” and came out just last week on his own A-SIDED. Also worth checking his clever remix of Childish Gambino’s “Telegraph Ave”


Seattle’s rising talent, Fritz Carlton, recently took the dive to become one of LA’s newest producer transplants, and he’s not wasting any time in establishing his name in our bustling metropolis filled with many other gifted artists. With his distinctive blend of house, ghetto, & tech, he initially cut through the noise with tracks like “Nine to Five” on Perfect Driver, and “Beats Me,” but he’s continuing to out-do himself with each release. His latest, “Push It,”  is a surefire floor-filler with its bouncy groove, snarling bassline, and tasteful vocal accents. Enjoy the tune above and keep an eye out for the free download on July 28th via Nite Records.

Another weekend of hanging with friends in Los Angeles and talking about how f***ing hot it is as sweat drips ever so distastefully from your already over saturated brow line. Keep it cool on us this weekend, though, as we provide a new Too Hot For House Music: Summer Breeze edition, because nothing beats the slightest glimmer of some wind on your face as the sun reminds you who reigns supreme this weekend. There’s plenty of non house music vibes to go around with garage rock, surfer blues, UK indie, 70’s soul, and downtempo/RnB all properly represented in this weeks playlist. So dig in, give thanks, and stay breezy y’all.

nicky night time

Dom Dolla & Go Freek recently released one of the sickest tunes I’ve heard in a minute.  “Define” is a vocal backed house slammer that beautifully defines the essence of the overlying label, Sweat It Out!  Those vocal stabs and raunchy bassline just don’t quit.  One Mr. Nicky Night Time is now joining the pack of remix artists, which boasts a nice collection (Cassian and Curses thus far).  His take on the track takes full use of the vocals, chopping and sampling in a really cool way.  The bassline drags slowly behind the vocals and jumps quick on the drops.  Still can’t get enough of these vocals in either version.  Stream this bad boy from Nicky Night Time exclusively here!
