Visionquest not only makes up the supergroup of Seth Troxler, Lee Curtiss, Shaun Reeves, and Ryan Crosson, but it’s also a home to sounds that are supported by the foursome, like the new single from Canadian duo and VQ partypals, FOOTPRINTZ. “Dangers of the Mouth” is the first single from their forthcoming debut album, and Visionquest has started them off with a bang as they commission fellow Montrealean and Turbo mastermind, Tiga, for an uptempo rework that brings the dark, synthpop original off of its knees and into dancefloor territory. This great remix along with another rendition from Detroit’s Jimmy Edgar will be released exclusively on Beatport August 13th before its worldwide release on the 27th. √+Continue Reading
The other day Tiga made his return to his BBC 6music residency for the first time this year with a mix recorded unsuspectingly in Goa, India. Labeled as a ‘Trance’ special, Tiga characteristically takes the genre in his own direction for a mix unlike any you’ve heard before.

ps: If you somehow need more music to tide you over for the weekend, check out the MediaFire song finder I put together at SpotHeads.blogspot.com. For example: you type in “boys noize – yeah”, click search, fabulous MediaFire links to download present themselves, you wrap your ears around some chunage. It was utilized extensively in the last couple hours for tracking tracks down, let me know what you guys think.
Over the past 48 hours I’ve had a single track repeating over and over inside my busy little brain. For reasons unknown to me, Virginia based Dutchman: Martyn‘s remix of Tiga‘s ‘Gentle Giant’ has flown under the radar, so I’m gonna give you dirty dancers the low down. 2010′s spelt a rise in lyric-less vocal patterns in electronic music; that’s particularly prominent in this track, fusing together with orchestral synths and UK Garage beats to create an anthem that’s as dark and suspenseful, as it is mellow and refreshing.
You can always count on me for some nu-disco, dreamwave-y, glo-fi goodness…not today tho. Today I bring some filth. Big boy tracks by big boy artists Tiga (accompanied by big boy remixer A-Trak), DANGER + Boys Noize .
If you’re at all aware of the Dirtybird crew (you should be), you’re more than likely aware of the various Dirtybird BBQ events they have been throwing over the past months. These shows have done wonders in combining the friendly atmosphere and bouncing bass the label has become so known for. Brooklyn, Detroit, Toronto, San Francisco, and now Los Angeles for HARD Day Of The Dead where they will be taking over an entire stage. Full preview after the jump!
Quite fitting for this Halloween month – Aussie brethren Jensen Interceptor and Craig Williams collaborated on an EP for GND records and it is a diabolical concoction of techno. Their Divide EP features noise fit for any berlin dungeon or french basement, boasting club-piping tracks that fans of Gesaffelstein, TIGA, and Boys Noize will be all over.
The EP has made serious waves in its realm, gaining support from the likes of Jon Convex, Zombie Nation, Thomas Schumacher, Sharooz, Djedjotronic, Mixhell, Monsieur Monsieur, Shadow Dancer, Louisahhh and more!
Last week, I embarked on a journey to Cabo San Lucas, and the timing couldn’t have been better as I had just received this vibey guest mix from our homie, SNBRN aka Kevin Chapman. With a slew of remixes recently topping the Hype Machine charts, this LA native is enjoying a breakout Summer, and he’s expected to continue on his ascent as he performs alongside other world-class artists at events like Splash House, while producing more crowd-favorite tracks. Now SNBRN has delivered a fantastic mix featuring a plethora of poolside jams that are to be enjoyed well-chilled, whether you’re in a place like Cabo or not.

It’s going to be a long HARD Summer this year if Gary Richards and Co.’s new lineup trailer is any indication of the debauchery that will ensue come August 2 & 3. With Jack U (Skrillex + Diplo) as the main characters, the scene is set as the super duo set out to find their “schtick” with the help of Grandma Skrillex. It’s soon discovered that anything on top of your head goes as a motley crew of DJ’s assemble, including Richards, Justin Martin, and Kill The Noise. Everything turns sour, though, as Dillon Francis realizes his pals Diplo and Skrillex have stolen his Strawberry concept and only A-Trak can console… Peep the full video below and take a gander at a lineup that just about scratches any possible Electronic Music itch you might have.
