Webster Hall continues to be one of my favorite venues in New York City and this past Friday was no exception. After getting word that there would be a secret guest I made my way over to the historic club and hoped for an interesting night. With a line-up consisting of Crizzly and Alvin Risk and armed with the knowledge that Skrillex was in town, I prayed that I would finally get to witness a rare surprise Skrillex set like other GDD writers had seen before me.

Diddy Dirty Money – I Hate That You Love Me (Sinden Edit) by Sinden

Good Morning GDD world, I am proud to be able to give you yet another world exclusive. Today, I give you the  debut of Tittsworth and Alvin Risk‘s video for their new track “Pendejas”. The video was directed by Rand Rosenberg and was shot in Washington, DC and New York. The track is off their newest release “Two Strokes” just released the other week on Plant Music.
Make sure to show them support by buying the EP on iTunes or Beatport.


For our thirty-sixth edition of the infamous DIRT, we bring you a top 12 chart of some of the best tracks right now in electronic music from pretty much across the board. Though they all share a common dirty-ness to them, we chose these tracks for unique reasons – and what better way to convey that then to charm you with our personal opinion on why you should direct yourself to the download link immediately (the best way we know how to).

drink up dirty dancers…

DIRTY
Felix Cartal & Keatch – Lazy Bird (Original Mix) √+
I’ve literally waited over a year for this track to be released, and for it to have stayed locked away until just a week ago is a marvel in its own. We all know that Felix Cartal has caught our attention once again with his recent productions, but the help of Belgium-based Keatch makes their collaborative EP’s Solar and now Animals unmatchable. Grab this in 192 and do yourself a solid and purchase the full EP here.

BIG ROOM
Swanky Tunes & Hard Rock Sofa – Feedback (Original Mix) √+
This summer wherever you are in festival mode, you’re gonna hear headliners from the main stage (you should know who) playing this massive collaboration between big room track kings Swanky Tunes and Hard Rock Sofa. This one also has the same riff as Daft Punk’s ‘Rollin & Scratchin’ – but takes it to a level suitable for crowds in the 25,000+ category. BIG.

DIRTY DISCO
In Flagranti – Worse For Wear (Punks Jump Up Remix) √+
The first time I heard this in the Light Year Summer Mix, I played the mix over and over just because of this track. The howling bass line behind the drums, claps and cowbells (with a hint of dirty sax) turn the original vocal into a drunken disco fire-starter.

BASS
DJ Fresh – Louder (Club Mix) √+
Even though I don’t play out dubstep (or bass music for that matter) in my sets, I still respect it very much because of anthems like this one. This track is special however because of the newly found sound of drum & bass hero DJ Fresh. Groundbreaking tune, a MUST even if you don’t care for dubstep. Grab this 192, but get serious with the 320 here.

FUNKY
Julio Bashmore – Battle For Middle You √+
This officially came out at the very start of this year, but I haven’t been able to stop playing it out in my sets, in my car, or any where I can feel some low end with this baby. Julio Bashmore creates a love child with funk, soul and bass driven rhythm. In fact, the lyrics in the tune actually ring true because they definitely make me wanna get up, stomp my feet, and get down.

FUTURE
Kry Wolf – 3001 (Original Mix) √+
AC Slater struck gold when he discovered Kry Wolf and signed him to his Party Like Us label. His production flies across the board, but this track is titled ’3001′ because it is takes you that far ahead in time to the future of the drop. Let this one grow on you, it’s the best kind of WEIRD you could ask for.

SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER
CSS – Hit Me Like a Rock (Dillon Francis Remix)
Another killer free tune from Mr.Francis. Radio rips have been floating around for awhile, but it was finally released this past week.

DRUM & BASS
Botnek – Jerpa (Botnek Drum & Bass Remix)
An uncommon Drum & Bass remix from this up and coming Canadian Duo. If you like this track, check out the guest Dirt they did a few weeks back for some more major tunes. They are definitely a group to watch.

MOOMBAHTON
Tittsworth & Alvin Risk – Pendejas
Great new track from two of Washington DC’s best. More along the lines of moombahcore. If you dig artists like Munchi & Dillon Francis you will love this track.

ELECTRO DISCO
LBCK – Instant Party
Great new track with a great summer vibe, Huge EP from the Long Beach based duo.

GRINDCORE
Bassnectar – Upside Down
A new release from one of the bass game’s heavyweights. It is just what we have come to expect from Bassnectar over the years: HEAVY HEAVY bass.

ELECTRO HOUSE
Lady Gaga – The Edge of Glory (Porter Robinson Club Mix)
I am usually not a huge fan of any of the new pop electro house that has been going around these days. But I must admit, I really like this track. The drop in the middle is worth the download!

ZIPPED UP
• The Dirt #36 – ///BONES & KMOC.zip (all 12 tracks!)

The second release on Designer Drugs’ label, Sex Cult Records, comes from the bearded man from Brooklyn, Cerebral Vortex, and as you would expect from the grindhouse DD boys, it’s inundated with tons o’ electro crunch. The release features a happy meal of remixes including Designer Drugs, Cyberpunkers, Jesse Jamz, Tom Deluxx, and Alvin Risk. Here’s a couple of ‘em.

Cerebral Vortex – Fly By Night (Cyberpunkers Remix) √+
