New York natives Solidisco are back on the scene with trifecta of funk, dropping (3) FREE tracks in their Ready Look Choose giveaway EP. Used throughout their DJ sets this year, the EP is a fun handful of high energy disco house tracks, as well as a great way to close out the year for the duo. Enjoy!
With previous releases on Skrillex’s Nest label, and a stand out remix of Adam F & Cory Enemy’s “When It Comes To You,” Los Angeles’ emerging producer/DJ, Rags, continues to show great promise with his tasteful brand of bass music that was born out of hip-hop, trap, and club influences. Today, he’s coming through with this week’s GDD™ Guest Mix that he’s dubbed, “I’ll Be With You Till The Lights Turn On.” Rags keeps the energy up and the track selection diverse as he takes listeners on a bass-filled ride through custom edits/mashups, and tracks from the likes of Mr. Carmack, Rustie, Club Cheval, Giraffage, Mr. Oizo, and even The Beatles as the mix winds down and the lights turn on. Listen/download below and check the tracklist after the jump.

We’ve seen many remixes of Flight Facilities thrown around in the past weeks. Guys like Lido and HNNY have both put their stamp on “Two Bodies” to the delight of listeners everywhere. Today, we’re stoked to bring you the missing link in the remix spectrum. Our good buddy and Los Angeles native Modus has graced us with an exclusive download of his take on the aforementioned “Two Bodies.” He repurposes the simple, yet beautiful melody into a churning tech-house piece, incorporating the ethereal vocals in the ladder half to tie everything together.
This one truly is made for the club, so expect to be hearing it at one near you. Speaking of which, you can catch Modus at one of his upcoming Los Angeles shows:
- (1/2/15) Frenzy Afterhours at Avalon
- (1/21/15) Clinic at Couture with Anthony Attalla

Norway’s Bearson is back at it with his first tune since his remix of James Bay’s “Let It Go” that was released in October. For this one, it’s a bit of a special occasion since it’s his first solo original production that’s seeing the light of day. Despite this, Bearson continues to evolve his sound, and on “Pink Medicine,” his progress is apparent with its mid-tempo groove, pitched up vocal edits, and a vibe more similar to his Australian counterparts, rather than Norwegian. Enjoy above and grab the free download via Next Wave Records for safe keeping.
We like to consider ourselves Zhu connoisseurs here at GDD, yet somehow the Grammy nominated producer keeps on surprising us. Like Kaytranada before him, Zhu has become the latest big name producer to collaborate with GoldLink. With his own project originally based around the motif of anonymity, it seems fitting that the up-and-coming rapper would find himself aligning with the Zhu camp. The track, a reworking of “Paradise Awaits,” is tailored to accommodate both a stunning verse from GoldLink, and more Zhu vocal work. Production, falsetto, Sisqo covers, is there anything this dude can’t do?

Sweater Beats is back on the viral Soundcloud tip – this time with a redux of Kimbra’s 2011 smoker “Settle Down”. Stripping down the jazzy tendencies in the track for a more sweeping and eclectic ambiance, Sweater Beats sticks to his production roots while still making Kimbra’s vocals really shine on the track – a feature often masked in remixes and bootlegs. Her unique voice sits high above the scattered drum varients and tingling piano work that with all their unique sequencing has an almost orchestral vibe to it.
So, go on tour with Chance The Rapper, play a dope remix in your sets, and get shit popping. Well done, SB.

Anonymity has slowly but surely become a more popular route by producers aiming to gather a bit of buzz. In the case of Geist, it’s working. Since the release of “I Need Ya,” a techno-rooted, big room underground style collaboration with Schumi, curious ears have been awaiting their return. With “Hey Hey,” the duo kicks of the first of five releases making up the #EXPECTCOLOR EP. The achieved sound is a bit more lighthearted and dancey than their first release, offering a larger sound spectrum to their mysterious project. Grab the free download and stay tuned for the rest of their debut EP.
