UK bass monger Hostage has been a GDD favorite since our inception. From 4 am warehouse anthems to growling sub-bass monsters, he’s produced a wide variety of tunes that speaks of his talent. He has a forthcoming release called the Creep EP on Herve‘s new label named ‘Deep Thrills’. While they might appear more subdued than some of his other releases, they all pack that fat square bassline that’s distinctively UK and also incorporate 2-step/garage influenced percussion lines that have me itching for it to drop next month.

Clouds‘ new EP, Optic, dropped the other day on Turbo Recordings and it’s unsurprisingly impressive. With Optic, the duo brings us more massive, bass heavy hits that continue to wreak havoc on dance floors across the globe. While Clouds’ particular sound hasn’t changed much, this EP shows a little more maturity in their production decisions. I’m particularly vibing to the title track, Optic.

Longtime GottaDanceDirty™ favorite Hostage is back again with a seriously destructive remix of Switzerland’s Demon-D. Distinctivly Hostage, the tune eases in with some eerily tropical snares and synths, but once the bassline attacks, you’ll understand why this will surely be a peak-time rave slayer for those daring enough to play it.
From the vault…
Last summer, fellow blog bros Tron Jeremy, ///Bones, and I made exclusive mixes for our good friends over at Hot Biscuits. We were told they could be any genre, any style, any whatever. At the time, I had a major falling out with our lascivious lover, Miss Electro, and went pretty left-field, which spawned the first Haute and Bothered. Since then, the obscurity of artists like James Blake, Julio Bashmore, and Canblaster have filled that hole in my heart was left gaping after my sorrowful break-up. Raise your glasses, folks. We’re toasting to the future.
