Toronto’s deepest duo Art Department has transcended the spirit of Burning Man’s ‘Robot Heart’ into an original production with the help of Blud, Shaun Reeves (VisionQuest) and Damian Lazarus. The deep house kingpins are celebrating the infamous Burning Man camp – with a remix competition on hosted on beatport! Riding off an official remix for Azari & III, our Dim Mak friends VCO have stepped up to the task and have delivered a wave of techno atop a rolling basslin driving their version. Check it out below and VOTE for their remix! Plus, since VCO are veteran-burners, they figured “joining in this contest would be fairly fitting.”
LA! Where will you be on New Years Eve?
Sure there are plenty of goings on around the area, but GDD would like to personally suggest the place to be as we ring in 2013. Insomniac has teamed up with Exchange in downtown LA to bring you a monumental night of music thats sure to go til the break of dawn. In the main room (top floor), techno legends Sasha and Adam Beyer will be in control of the decks, while deeper heavyweights Art Department and Damian Lazarus will be holding down Room 2 (bottom floor). You can fist pump your life away any other night – we highly recommend educating yourself with some of the best in electronic music as we ring in the new year.

Los Angeles, I can confidently say that this Saturday marks one of the best dance music events to ever happen in this city. Crosstown Rebels, the lauded label run by the mysteriously interesting Damian Lazarus, and Flaunt Magazine are bringing the infamous Get Lost party to the West Coast after multiple successful and wildly hedonistic events during WMC in Miami in years past. With some of the biggest names in the global underground scene, Get Lost LA should be a bequest of auditory knowledge to all electronic music enthusiasts in this city. Find all necessary info below and make sure to read after the jump to see what Los Angeles’ trio, Droog, have to say about Get Lost, the Culprit label, and how Jamie Jones and Lee Foss helped them be where they’re at now.

What a butt, right? Anyway, I’d like to thank you all for your feedback on the recent Dirts that we’ve been putting up in past weeks. We know you guys all love your free music, but we also want to make you all aware of great new tracks that big time artists are playing out that you may not have heard of before. Therefore, we will be keeping The Dirt to tracks available for download, zipped up tight for your bulky pleasure. In addition, we will be starting up a new Artist Chart-type feature where artists will throw us 10-15 tracks that they’re fond of. Not sure what to name it yet, so if you guys have any ideas feel free to comment below. We’d love to hear your input.
This week, Troy Kurtz and I decided to do a double-team Dirt for you guys. Each of us took a completely different take on these tunes, so don’t be surprised that his 6 have absolutely no relation to my 6. TK has used his recent trip to ATL as an inspiration, and I just felt like it was necessary to go with some of the bigger House tracks that have been in heavy rotation since last Monday. Let us know what you think! Tunes after the jump. Continue Reading
