Our friends Cruz + Jacob have unveiled quite a controversial mini documentary this week focusing on party photography and the extent to which photographers can use the camera in their hand as a pass to festivals, green rooms, and DJ booths around the world. The massive boom of dance music in recent years has brought about a simultaneous boom in party photographers; many of whom know nothing about photography and find that taking pictures is the best way to attend events in VIP fashion. Cruz + Jacob dive deep into this issue in this extremely well done, honest video, interviewing some of the most well known photogs in the game including Rukes and Kirill. Check it out. √+

This Thursday (2/28) marks the start of our new GDD monthly happening in San Francisco called Barbary Coast. After a succesfully preview party last fall, we kick into 2013 with UK house mogul Jesse Rose, bringing his internationally seasoned craft of club music to the intimate space of Harlot nightclub.
To get ready for this week’s show, we sat down for a quick interview with the man himself, catching up on his DJ travels, music production, being a label boss, and what we can expect @ the show…

VERSUS was our humble weekly event @ The Central in Santa Monica, CA over the past 2 years. We’re sad to have it come to an end, but we sent it off proper with a biblical b2b set from Skrillex x Congorock x Crookers x 12th Planet, along with Doorly and our very own Bones. We thank everyone for all the memories, never forget what we’ve built.
GDD x DANCEiSM = VERSUS

As some of you may or may not know, we’ve started up a new project here at GDD™, bringing in a video element to the brand called GDD.tv. Our team (big shout out to Alex, Laura D + KMOC) was hard at work out in Las Vegas a couple weeks ago; locking down interviews with some of the scene’s best musicians that were out in the desert for the biggest dance music festival in North America. Our brilliant videographer, Alexander Jacob, has put together a teaser video of some of the artists that we had the pleasure of chatting with, so have a quick watch and keep an eye out for the full interviews to surface in the near future!

It’s taken a few years for everything to fall into place, but 2012 will see the launch of the newest branch of Gotta Dance Dirty, GDD.tv. The extremely talented photographer/filmmaker, Alexander Jacob, will be working alongside the rest of the GDD™ team to create artistic, provoking video content that can’t be seen anywhere else in dance music media. The first project is a 3-part documentary series on Dirty Dutch‘s, BetaTraXx. Alex has put together a teaser for the series, including some of the debauchery from BetaTraXx’s last tour here in the US. Keep your eyes peeled for more on gottadancedirty.tv.
