I’ve been waiting for this one for a while as I’m sure many of you have. Trouble & Bass boss, Drop The Lime, is bringing his live band to the Avalon in Hollywood in 2 days, and I’ve heard only amazing things about this highly anticipated performance. In addition to this monstrous headliner, we will also witness another CONTROL appearance from GDD™ fav, Alex Metric, as well as the Finnish firestarter, Huoratron, and West Coast T&B rep, Samo Sound Boy. This is going to be a good one boys and girls.

The Whip will be releasing a new single titled, ‘Secret Weapon,’ on Southern Fried Records this month, and the great people over at SFR have been kind enough to give away fellow Brit Alex Metric‘s remix away to go along with it. The indie feel from The Whip’s original rendition is juxtaposed to Alex Metric’s keen sense of bassline usage making for a great collaboration and a must have for any occasion.
We all itch for new Alex Metric material, and when that day is upon us, the sound waves enter our ears, and we tingle in delight. It is impossible to make techie electro sound this good. The riffs, builds, and cosmic sounds layered on his patented grinding yet groovy bassline is a recipe for success, and it has happened again. Coming off such a hot collaboration with Steve Angello for Open Your Eyes, it was time for another massive club hit. The result is Raveageddon, which will be released as a bonus track on the EP single package for End of the World dropping August 15th. A hard-hitting, melodic tune perfect for the end of the world as we know it. As if that’s not enough, a full length Alex Metric album, Open Your Eyes: Remixes and Productions, will drop shortly after on the 22nd. Keep your eyes peeled for an interview with the man, myth, and legend as well. Now turn up the volume and get after it!
Guided by the ruling hand of the GottaDanceDirty™ Pharaoh, we at GDD™ have certain guidelines in which we are to follow. One major rule handed down to us by the Pharaoh is to limit the generic “hey, here’s my top tunes of the week” posts***. BUT…I haven’t posted for a bit, so I’m doing what I gotta do – a “top tunes” post. Let’s hope my punishment is light.
First off, do yourself a super solid and check out Robots With Rayguns on Soundcloud (and peep Binary’s choice write up on RWR). Robots With Rayguns are giving away their entire album for free! That rules on many levels. For some new wave+electro+spacepop domination, go grab ‘Electro Isn’t Dead’ off Soundcloud RIGHT MEOW!
