I hope you all had amazing weekend! Rather than the regular morning update today, we have an evening update of the top stories in the world of Electronic music. On this rainy day in Los Angeles we are catching up on news from Underworld, HARD X MOUTH TAPED SHUT, the Occupy Movement, MTV’s Top DJ’s, and DEADMAU5’s death hoax.

Happy Friday! We’ve made through yet another week and I have another GDD™ Morning Update to close it out. Today’s news features Electronic Music Grammy nominations w/ Skrillex, the Future Music Festival lineup, Boys Noize & Mr. Oizo start Handbrakes, The Chemical Brothers’ live DVD, & LCD Soundsystem’s final show documentary. See it all after the jump.
Good morning! We have an excellent update for you all today. Sometimes I wish that the artists that make the headlines were a lineup for a GDD™ Festival. Don’t you? Anyway, there is way too much going on for you to not check it out, so hurry after the jump!
It’s a mid-month Wednesday and as per usual, there are several things worth informing you about. Today’s update begins with Deadmau5’s new Las Vegas residency, then moves on into Avicii’s US record deal, Pretty Lights’ Sirius radio show, a UK festival awards round-up, and iTunes match legitimizing music piracy. To go along with the Deadmau5 headliner, I included his cover of Radiohead’s “Codex” for your listening pleasure. Listen and be informed after the jump.
After playing the legendary Studio 54 in New York City last night, Avicii has officially kicked off his Halloween tour throughout US and Canada, bringing his Big Room anthemic sound to cities around North America. Recently, Tim has been using his acclaimed hands-up remix of Coldplay’s ‘Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall’ to open his sets, and it’s definitely been doing the trick. Thanks to the lovely people at Avicii’s management firm, At Night, we are able to give you this feel good track in full quality for FREE! Pick it up and check out Avicii’s upcoming tour dates on his Facebook.
Avicii is running a competition on his website to be in his new ‘Levels’ music video. Head over to his site for details!
As if we haven’t been lucky enough to get our hands (or ears) on some huge tracks this summer, our good buddy Clockwork has taken Avicii‘s infamous festival favorite ‘Levels’ and created its big-room evil brother. Avicii is kind of a guilty pleasure for me, but I never have played out his tracks in my sets – now I can let a rip with this baby. Expect to hear this one supported by the likes of Laidback Luke, Dada Life and maybe even the Aveech’ himself.
And we can’t forget how much we love the Etta James vox!
What’s up my fellow dirty dancers, I hope your weekend is treating you as well as it is treating me. This has been a great week in music, whether your in Miami or not (and if you are, I want you to know I hate you a little bit). Anyways, I was very honored when FuzZ, Avedon and Zedex all decided to contribute to this weeks dirt! From complex IDM to French House, the three artists certainly differ in their sound, but not their unmistakable talent. With a wide range of songs to choose from on this weeks dirt, there is certainly something for all of you. So without further ado, myself, Fuzz, Avedon and Zedex present this week’s dirt after the jump!
*Check out the exclusive tracks from Fuzz, Zedex & St. Andrew!
Hello GDD™ Nation! I hope you all had a killer weekend, and if you made it out to Beyond Wonderland in San Bernardino like a few of us did last night then I know you had a great one. Anyway, after listening to Hardwell‘s past couple of On Air mixes from the past two weeks, I felt the urge to share these BIG hour long sets with all of you. Each contains a plethora of big room, ‘hands-up’ house tracks, including some worldwide exclusives and new tracks from the likes of Avicii, Sebastien Drums, Funkagenda, Swanky Tunes, and more. Grab the latest one below and get March 10th’s mix with tracklist as well as a teaser for Hardwell’s unreleased track, Encoded, after the jump. Keep an eye out for more On Air mixes in the future right here on GDD™.

First off I would like to apologize for getting The Dirt up late in my first attempt. I am just finally coming back around to reality after the events from this past weekend. If you were not at the Pigeonhole This! Records x Crown Jewels party this weekend at The Well in Downtown LA you definitely missed on quite the night with a super stacked lineup. Well without further adieu. I present to you The Dirt Volume 23.
