After quite a few successful releases under his belt over the past year Tim Bergling (better known under his 2 producing monikers Avicii and Tim Berg) was asked last month to record his own essential mix for Radio 1 in the UK. The mix just as you would suspect if you are familar with Avicii is a full 2 hours of Big Room house that makes you want to get up and move.  I highly suggest you download it if your a fan of Avicii’s style or of Big Room house or even if you just need something to pick you up after a long Friday and carry you into the weekend. Trust me you will not regret it.

Hope you kids are recovered from another weekend of summer mayhem. This week’s been a pretty nutty seven days for electronic music, so I figured I’d kick off with a few heaters for y’all – try saying that with a British accent while trying to keep a straight face…

First up, GDD faves Dada Life have gone and produced a wicked new remix of Tim Berg, the man who also goes by the name of Avicii. Fuelled by champagne and bananas, the Swedish duo have given the original track a massive kick up the ass with distorted vox and heavy synthlines. Chin chin:

Signed with both Fool’s Gold and Modular, Bag Raiders seem to be doing rather well for themselves at the moment. Their Big Fun EP is still getting a grip of airplay and their debut album is set to hit the shelves on October 1. Until then, let the new Harvard Bass remix of ‘Way Back Home’ tide you over. Massive fan of this track; to case the original, head over to aRod’s post from a few weeks back – easy link.

I’ve been keeping an eye on Human Life who’ve been putting out some real tuneage lately. The LA based indie-disco trio will be playing at Pacific Fest in Costa Mesa on September 4th alongside Alan Braxe, Steve Aoki, and GDD’s own Dr. Schlongo & ///Bones among others, so head down to the OC and party with us on Labor Day weekend – We’ll hook you up with more info on that later. Back to Human Life though, they’ve got an EP set to drop at the beginning of November featuring remixes from Grum, Mintel Rose and Boston duo Nightriders. They’re currently giving away the B-side ‘Italo Crimewave’ for free via their soundcloud:
Last and by no means least, Mowgli‘s just unleashed a solid seven minute fidget rendition of LA Riots ‘Bombah’. Again, a huge fan of this track; if you dig it, head on over to Beatport to show Mowgli and LA Riots some love and support by buying the track in full 320 - Beatport link

While the GDD team are reeling from the exploits of a fun filled weekend; I figured we should probably give you a rundown of how the Electric Daisy Carnival played out for us. With so many time clashes of the world’s finest DJs, I can only offer you one man’s perspective; so whichever sets I missed or overlooked, feel free to add your tales below, cos we wanna hear them.
Friday was a massive affair, the main reason I was there was to see veteran house supergroup Swedish House Mafia, who absolutely killed their live set on Kinetic Field. Unsurprisingly, the Coliseum was packed out, the gates to the main floor were closed when it reached capacity pretty early in the day, so a load of people were forced into the stands, but that didn’t matter. To be honest, the sound could’ve been bumped a little louder on day one in the Coliseum, but that was probably down to the fact that there were tens of thousands of people wiling out to Axwell, Angello and Ingrosso; the atmosphere was like nothing else. Highlights of their set were ‘One’ and the massive ‘Leave The World Behind’. If I’m pushed, the one part of their set I was less stoked on was their bunk drop of Blur‘s Song 2 intro which didn’t go anywhere, but besides that it was pretty dope.

Credit where it’s due, Dirty South played the best show I’ve seen from him all year; spinning to a packed out house before Swedish House Mafia played, he really set the bar at new heights. Meanwhile, over at the Cosmic Meadow stage, the bar was also being raised at a prolific rate; Bart B More taking to the stage after a wicked set from Dada Life, then throwing down some of the dirtiest dutch house I’ve heard in months. Travis x A-Trak, I was undecided on at first, but their set together was a pretty awesome tribute to DJ AM; the two playing electro and house bangers from the past year, keeping the party going with the fresh musical addition of Travis Barker‘s live percussion. The best set I saw all night was over at the Circuit Grounds, where we were able to witness Moby slaying a rare dj set. This for me was not only the best set all night, but it’d also rate among the top five sets I’ve seen this year. A particular highlight was raging to this humungous house banger:

The half of the Jack Beats set I managed to hear was pretty decent, a mixture of old and new house driven dubstep; obvious highlights were ‘Get Down’ and the two new tracks they’re set to release today via Herve‘s Cheap Thrills label:
If you dig these, then head over to Beatport where you can pick up the EP in full 320
So to round off the night, rather than head into the oversubscribed mess that was the Coliseum for Deadmau5, we scoped out Claude VonStroke who was throwing down his trademark minimal over at the Neon Garden stage. Such a sick set that sent us spiraling into Saturday.

Hit the second day fairly late on, making a beeline straight for Kinetic Field and the mainstage which boasted sets from Bart B More, Dada Life & Afrojack. Afrojack slammed out a very similar set to Friday’s one; though to a far bigger audience, all blissing out to his dutch house and electro, before the dream was shattered by Lil’ Jon who out of nowhere started MCing for the tail end of his set. Back to back sets from Sound of Stereo and Felix Cartal put us back on track and onto a good one, just in time to catch a hotly anticipated set from Laidback Luke who failed to disappoint. I think it’s pretty fair to say that downtown LA went Dutch for the weekend; the amount of bleep heavy house music that went on is going to be etched into my skull for the rest of summer. Back over at Cosmic Meadows, LA Riots threw down some jams, particularly memorable was this:

Even Wolfgang Gartner‘s set was tinged with Dutch House, as he exploded onstage with classic heavy hitters: ‘Wolfgang’s 5th’, ‘Undertaker’ and ‘Fire Power’. Entirely different to his set at Coachella, this one was far more of a housey affair. One act I’ve been looking forward to catching more than any other lately is Duck Sauce, the Fool’s Gold collab between A-Trak and Armand Van Helden. Arriving onstage beneath a thirty foot high duck, the duo proceeded to shred through their 75 minute set. Highlights of their show included GottaDanceDirty favorite Louis La Roche‘s ‘Sunshine Hotel’ as well as these:
If you dig this collab between Riton and Mehdi, they’re playing in LA this Saturday and you can scoop up tickets here
At EDC they played the unreleased original, but here’s a sick re-edit from Manila Killa
And finally, last but by no means least, the closing set from Boys Noize; who threw down a mixture of old and new – from Oi Oi Oi, Power and his collaborations with Erol – but threw it down super hard. The Boys Noize set was tight and ranks among the best I saw all weekend. Was hoping he’d drop this as an encore, but sadly he got cut short at 2am:
After hearing previews and radio rips of this for over a month now, here it is in full – This track is utter fire.
From the vault:
Big thanks to everyone who made the weekend a memorable one, particularly those who stopped us to say what up and compliment the GDD tees. You can get your mitts on them now HERE.
Cheers,
SweetFA

Get out your glowsticks and E-bombers. Got a little techNO for yall. As badly as I want to knock this track and all the shutter-shade wearing fist pumping day-glo fans he has out there, you can’t deny that Tiesto knows how to produce one hell of a club tune. He has a new album out called Kaleidoscope (album photo is pretty rank, but I guess when you’re the god of trance you can do what you want and get away with it) Swedish house man Avicii gets all kinds of ravey on an almost 8 minute long epic, while the LA Riots remix is what you’d expect…less ed hardy and more leather jacket.
