Sweet, Sweet, disco nectar delivered strait to your door. This sun-kissed ultra funky mix mutates & cultivates the vibes of Tropicool‘s essence in the South Bay. Everything is in full bloom, the birds, bees, and the myrts feel it. The sand is warm and the micheladas are frosty. Poseidon is holding a conch shell to his ear, and the vibration station is starting to reverberate. Perv and swerve, because for this one, you’re meant to loose control while on cruise control.

Cassian is a name that most of you have become very familiar with here at GDD. This Auzzy and his insatiable dance music groove’s have consumed our attention in the form of a guest mix, and pretty much anything else his name is associated with. Anna Lunoe is a fellow mate from down under, and Touch Sensitive brings some Scotland vibes into this melting pot of a track. This particular remix has that four on the floor beat we have all come to know and love, along with some deep synth lines that bring it more into the realm of deep house. The original production was released on March 18th through Future Classic Records, but Anna Lunoe and Cassian have chosen to release this remix as a free download, so be sure to cop it while it’s hot!
• Anna Lunoe & Touch Sensitive – Real Talk (Cassian Remix)
Without a doubt, my favorite babe of 2012 was the lovely and talented Ms. Anna Lunoe. She’s a wonderful DJ, an amazing songwriter, a master collaborator, her style is sexy and her eyebrows are bangin’. If last year was any indication of things to come from Anna, then 2013 should be a big year for her.
The Anna Lunoe Facebook page just hit the 10,000 fan milestone and as a gift to her fans, Anna is giving away a track for free. It’s a Winter-y song she wrote back in 2011. It’s deep & sweet with a little UK shuffle. Here’s what she had to say about it:
“This is one of the first songs that I wrote, produced and recorded on one rainy Winter’s day in June 2011. It’s very simple and quite different in style to the things I’m working on now, but looking back, it’s a sweet in its simplicity but I thought some of you might enjoy it. I will disable it in ten days or after 10K downloads.
Happy new year and thank you for supporting my music!
A little song with a lot of heart. Thanks, Anna…

Whattup New York? Fashion week kicks off tonight with Fashion’s Night Out but don’t forget to get your music fix too with some of these great events:
In the recent swarm of labels and collectives popping up all over the globe, the preeminent, seasoned collectives have risen to the forefront in taste-making circles. Labels that have stuck to their guns amidst the rollercoaster ride that has been the dance music industry in the past decade are now finding themselves miles ahead in a competitive industry. Enter Future Classic from Sydney, Australia. Nearly eight years in the making, Future Classic is an engrossing and eclectic music label, agency, DJ collective and publishing company, and in the past year their popularity has seemed to reach all corners of the globe with releases like Flight Facilities’ “With You,” Anna Lunoe’s “Real Talk,” and Danny Daze’s “Zone.” Last month, Future Classic released their first compilation — a beast of a release featuring some of the best tracks I’ve heard this year — so naturally I had to check in with Future Classic DJ Chad Gillard and hear what the fellas from Sydney were up to. Read on for the interview and a FREE track from the compilation. Continue Reading
Producer. DJ. Vocalist. Musical instrument. Beatport Queen. I could go on and on about Anna Lunoe but I don’t wanna cross the proverbial creepy line. I will say that Ms. Lunoe is certainly on a roll right now after the release of her massive “Real Talk” EP. And today we’ve got her first ever solo release. Here’s what she had to say about the song:
“Curated by A-Trak & Catchdubs, I was MAD EXCITED when Fools Gold offered to release my first solo track ‘Up & Down’ as part of the first ever Fools Gold Clubhouse Compilation. This track was written in the middle of winter during some kind of lonely girl moment. I hope it makes you get down/feel weird. “
Get down? Indeed. Feel weird? Maybe. Feel tingly. Certainly. Thanks, Anna.
Fixtapes are Mixtapes geared specifically for your ride. This tape is about constant motion and positive vibes to keep your legs cranking while your heart is pumping. It’s a new series by the Sole Bicycle guys which will feature a new artist every month resulting in quite an awesome compilation. I, Tropicool, was lucky enough to kick things off with Volume One. Enjoi!
Tracklisting After the Jump
There are two reasons why I am posting this track today. First, because “Real Talk” is a highly addictive Summer anthem that I have become completely obsessed with (and surely you will, too, if you haven’t already). And second, I’m posting this as a shout out to Anna Lunoe to let her know that her music is everything that is right in dance music (as opposed to the lesser of right in dance music, like not getting to DJ at your own Hollywood gig because the club just announced that some celebrity DJs are replacing you). But do not fret…I shant be ranting about the Drais fiasco. I’m just here to give some real talk on “Real Talk” & stay focused on what’s good.
With a production tag team of Anna Lunoe & Touch Sensitive (aka Michael Di Francesco of Van She), you knew something special was brewing. ”Real Talk” is a gigantic slice of proper house music with hypnotic vocal stabs and piano for days. It starts off deep & pulsating then builds and builds into a massive Summer dance party anthem. There’s so much feel good throughout this song that it’ll make you forget about all the other black-eyed bullshit in life and remind you to just dance.
