What a butt, right? Anyway, I’d like to thank you all for your feedback on the recent Dirts that we’ve been putting up in past weeks. We know you guys all love your free music, but we also want to make you all aware of great new tracks that big time artists are playing out that you may not have heard of before. Therefore, we will be keeping The Dirt to tracks available for download, zipped up tight for your bulky pleasure. In addition, we will be starting up a new Artist Chart-type feature where artists will throw us 10-15 tracks that they’re fond of. Not sure what to name it yet, so if you guys have any ideas feel free to comment below. We’d love to hear your input.
This week, Troy Kurtz and I decided to do a double-team Dirt for you guys. Each of us took a completely different take on these tunes, so don’t be surprised that his 6 have absolutely no relation to my 6. TK has used his recent trip to ATL as an inspiration, and I just felt like it was necessary to go with some of the bigger House tracks that have been in heavy rotation since last Monday. Let us know what you think! Tunes after the jump. Continue Reading
Seriously now does Dillon Francis ever sleep? Seems like every time I look he is giving away another free track. I guess the boy must not like money that much! This time he’s giving away his remix of Chris Brown‘s “Look At Me Now,” produced by Diplo and Afrojack. Head on over to his Facebook to snag it now!
If you’re in LA this Friday, come out and see Dillon spin in the Honey Lounge at CONTROL at the Avalon. In the mean time, check out the video of his set he did for Red Bull at the Boiler Room in London.
See you Friday!
If there is one thing Afrojack can be thankful for, it’s the amount of support and fans he’s gotten over the past year or so, making him one of the most popular DJs on the planet. In honor of the big man reaching 100,000 followers on Twitter and more than 250,000 Facebook friends, he is giving away a special funky rework of Pacha On Acid called POP ON ACID, made especially to show his gratitude for his die hard fans. Here’s what he had to say about it:
“Thank you all for the support over the past years. I’m super happy that we came this far and still going strong with dance music (and even Afrojack music) on the radio now. The world is going crazy for it and there’s more and more people sharing the love. So as promised here is a small gift. it was meant to be its own release, but Fuck it – there’s so much coming right now, so I’m giving you this track for free! Have fun listening to and see you guys soon!”

Last Wednesday I was lucky enough to attend DJMag‘s Top 100 DJs award ceremony at London’s highly acclaimed Ministry of Sound. I’ve never seen a club so rammed, as thousands flooded the streets, in line to catch sets from some of the world’s top acts. Afrojack opened up the second room, with a pretty tight two hour dutch house set, but the vast majority were there to find out who’d be crowned the world’s number 1 DJ. Armin Van Buuren received the award for the fourth time in consecutive years, as several hundred in the club appeared to groan at the lack of change.
For the past month or so, my obsession with big room and tech house has grown into an insatiable and undying need for more booming tracks. In come house masterminds Gregor Salto and Hardwell. These two very talented artists from Holland have been making some huge splashes in the EDM pond this year. Gregor Salto has pumped out three separate releases on three different labels (including one on his own label G-Rex) just since the end of June; the most notable being his collaboration with Afrojack titled ‘I’ll Be There.’ His tech influence mixed with Latin flavor is brilliant and unlike anything I’ve ever heard. Hardwell has shown that age does not equate with talent as he has already co-produced tracks with the likes of Chuckie as well as produced commissioned remixes for Laidback Luke, Steve Angello, and Sharam; all at and before the age of 21! Needless to say, I’m sure the rest of 2010 will prove to be a huge year for these Dutch producers, and if they keep up their creative and groundbreaking ideas, 2011 won’t be so bad either.
I’ve carefully selected a few goodies for you guys that I have been pumping in the GDD™
Penthouse all day. All are 320 and definitely √+
I had Sneevs put this in The Dirt a few weeks ago, but I had to put it up here again in case any of you missed it. One of my favorite tracks of the summer by far.
This morning our dear friends over at Ministry of Sound
were kind enough to give us an exclusive for all you loyal fans out there. They have sent us over the newest label-approved remix of Afrojack’s
super hit “Take Over Control” done by the English super producer Adam Fenton
(Adam F). For all those who have been living under a rock the past 10 years, Adam F is one of the biggest names in the dub game. He has worked with everyone from DJ Fresh
. Needless to say, his producing skills are second to none. In his remix of this notorious Dutch banger, he has successfully been able to take out the Dutch horn sound and create a subtle yet perfect dub mix. I highly suggest you check it out! Do not forget to pick up the 320 version when it drops November 7th on Ministry of Sound Records

After spending the weekend in Vegas for JonahDancesBirthday, I was impressed and a little surprised to see that the music and scene of our pool-party-day-raging was better than the mauafactured DJ playlists heard in the clubs at night. There is so much more electronic music played during the day, and the Vegas style that has mastered the art of the ‘bootleg.’ If you can balance enjoyable hip-hop vocals with dirty ass house music, then you have a solid pool party. Scope these new ones we dabbled this weekend:
Oh, and dirty dancers! My SUMMER 2010 Mix finally drops this wednesday! Get ready for an hour of party power…
