It seems as the time has finally come; Jesse Rose‘s massive undertaking of his 12×12 series finally ends with The Whole Twelve Remixes, a selection of (you guessed it) twelve brand new remixes from a grand selection of talented musicians in the game like Guti, Sebo K, Matthias Tanzmann, Ardalan, Doorly, and more. Each track from his album The Whole Twelve Inches got a nice little revisit from legends and newcomers alike, thickening the remix roster for Jesse’s label Play It Down by a hefty amount.
As an added bonus, two new remixes are available for free downloads via their premiers on THUMP and XLR8R. Symbols’ angel Jaw Jam puts a softer edge on the bass-heavy ‘Underbelly’ and Blaine Lake takes Love The Feeling High to booming techno levels. Big.

San Francisco’s young gun, Ardalan, comes through with this huge remix for Riva Starr‘s Bass In Hand Remix EP – the last releasee in a three-part remix EP series. Alongside other bass-inclined remixers such as Alexkid, Zombie Disco Squad, and Addison Groove, Ardalan transforms “We Got This Ting” into a fresh ghetto-tech groover perfect for DJs and casual listeners alike. Enjoy this stream and mark your calendars for the full remix album coming on February 3rd.
Release Date: January 6th
Not too much known about these 3 Brits from Northwestern England other than that they’ve caught the ear of Dave Spoon AKA Shadow Child & Kry Wolf for a debut release on their FOOD Music imprint out last month. Makes No Sense‘s Sling EP showcases an array of thumping, bass-heavy House music — right up the audible alley of imprint owner Shadow Child. The 3-track EP has received some serious support for a debut EP, receiving plays from Skream, Benga, Ardalan, Jaymo & Andy George, and many more. I think it’s definitely appropriate to add this trio to the growing list of top House & Bass coming out of England. Pick up the FOOD Music release here and check this mix the lads put together to celebrate their FOOD debut.
The majority of the GDD™ crew attended Coachella last weekend and had an absolute blast, so we’re heading back out to the desert on Friday for another fun-filled weekender at The Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs. Beginning Friday afternoon, we’ll be poolside for the Urban Outfitters Love Me Pop-Up shop, where GDD™ DJs will play alongside a grip of sun-loving artists including Warpaint, Turbotito, Data Romance, and more.
Following Urban Outfitters event on Friday will be the highly anticipated dirtybird Desert Edition pool party on Saturday featuring Claude VonStroke, J.Phlip, Justin Jay, and Ardalan, as well as another fantastic Crew Love event on Sunday with Wolf+Lamb, Soul Clap, Nick Monaco, and more.
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…

Kicking off our guest mix series in 2013, we have the pleasure of hosting a GDD™ favorite, Ardalan, who currently resides in the beautiful city of San Francisco. With numerous floor filler tracks out on prominent labels such as dirtybird, he has consistently shown his prowess and raw artistic ability in the studio. Ardalan’s musical talent certainly carries over when he’s behind the decks, and this guest mix (recorded live) showcases his impressive DJ capabilities and exquisite taste for booty shakin’ beats. Be prepared for an hour of enlightening grooves that serve as a foundation for his sound for the rest of the year.
TRACKLIST AFTER THE JUMP
If you’re like us at GDD™, then you’re probably just as obsessed with the dirtybird label and collective as we are. At the forefront of a genre-blurring, widely appealing, eclectic sound, dirtybird artists all seem to have a knack for making bouncy, fun tunes that are as deep as they are bassy, which is why we had to invite a couple fantastic young producers, Ardalan and Justin Jay, to VERSUS this week for a little showcase of their talent.

YES. It’s here. The first volume of remixes for Justin Martin‘s unbelievable debut album, Ghettos & Gardens, has arrived. 6 tracks make up this first installment, with dirtybird family members Ardalan, French Fries, and Catz N Dogz trying their hand at 3 singles while Danny Daze, Dusky, and Bachelors of Science take the reins for another 3. With only 2+ months left in 2012, I can still safely say that Ghettos & Gardens is my pick for album of the year, and a whole new batch of remixes from this caliber of talent makes me so damned delighted. Pick up Volume 1 on Beatport October 3rd. √+
