Two bouncy Holland duos, Chocolate Puma & Firebeatz, have joined forces for a new single due out on Spinnin’ Records July 16th, and it’s already gained massive support and attention from some of the world’s tops including Pete Tong, Axwell, Diplo, and Fatboy Slim. Everyone seems to be begging to get this track to play this summer, but it looks like we’ll have to wait until next month for its release. For now, this great music video will do.
After an epic saga of a weekend @ Coachella Music Festival, the GDD™ crew return from the desert with a battered brain of new music to better prepare for the massive summer to come.

Whether from artists that played Coachella, or just some of the key sounds that embody the stages, this team has it down for you and each specific playlist. Get your sweaty wristbands on them and let a’ rip.
Today marks the exclusive Beatport release of the first single, ‘Hook,’ from Joachim Garraud & Alesia‘s new collaborative EP, Hillside West, due out on Dim Mak next month. Teaming up with the fresh new French trio, Alesia, has proven to be a great influence on this new single from Joachim. Utilizing his mastery of Electro and Techno, Joachim also developed new Progressive and Dubstep influences into Hillside West, and the anthemic synths married with grungy, almost Skrillex-esque womps deliver a side of Joachim’s production that has never been heard before. With support already in from Axwell, Bingo Players, Angger Dimas and more, I’m sure that we’ll be hearing this a fair amount during festival season. Pick up ‘Hook’ on Beatport today and click on after the jump for the preview. Continue Reading
