Amtrac has proven himself to be one of the sickest and most versatile producers around. From the heavier side of house tracks, to more progressive ones like today’s release, this guy can do it all. His latest is called “Broadway,” and it definitely showcases a softer side of the producer. Simple vocal samples play along with a light and airy synth arrangement, making for a really pleasant track. This was made for — of all things — a playlist for Acura, which also includes tracks from Plastic Plates, Bit Funk and more. Download the whole collection below.

Coming off of a momentous 2013 including performances alongside some of his idols and an appearance on GDD’s Wide Awake Art Car at EDC Las Vegas, SURF AMBASSADOR HENDO enters the new year with a renewed vigor and refined vision for his career. In this mix, he brings us a diverse selection of new, old, and unreleased sun-soaked grooves that bring the heat. Check out the outstanding mix below, but before you jump in, here’s an important message from the man himself…
“As 2014 begins to unfold, I’ve decided to simplify a bit. I will be DJ-ing under the name Hendo come this Spring. This exclusive GDD™ Guest Mix is one of the last mixtapes I will do under the name Surf Ambassador Hendo. With a few songs in the works, some great future lineups, and a fresh twist on my mixing style, I’m really looking forward to spreading The Froth this year as I’m only just getting started…”
An early Tuesday morning treat courtesy of the fine people at Thump, “Soul Satisfaction,” the first track on a new EP being released by Brooklyn producer, Bit Funk, is being given away as a free download. Instruments galore as the chorus gallops to groovy piano chords and a punchy jazz drum kit. The funk is made real through the evocation of soulful vocals backed by a healthy dance tempo. This is a superbly stellar production from the artist whose original works catalogue is rapidly expanding, it should be interesting to see what the rest of this project adds to his repertoire.
Imagine cruising around the waters of Long Beach, CA on board a triple decker ship, while a multitude of killer acts– this time including GDD™’s TROPICOOL and our good friends NICEFINGERS– play across 2 stage areas, indoors and out. On 4th of July weekend 2013, a lively and very boatworthy crowd of 600 people did just that, to fantastic effect. Boatylicious was born and is now back for round two…

For this week’s Artist Collab series for The Dirt, I’m very excited to be teaming up with one of the baddest DJs on the planet, Anna Lunoe. Along with her sorcery on the decks, Anna is a phenomenal producer, she has serious remix game, her apparel line rocks, she kills it all across social media & pretty much dominates at life.
Check out Anna’s picks of some of her hottest tunes of the moment and what she has to say about them. Together we bring you a 10-pack of ultra cool, hot new jams, a handful of which you can grab for FREE!
The homie, option4, out of Denver has just sent over a 2-pack of tunes this morning featuring his latest original “Do Work” along with a remix from GDD™ fav Bit Funk. The original tune is straight up solid Tech House with a big time bassline; a track that could’ve fit in nicely to a dirtybird compilation, no doubt. The Bit Funk remix strips away the bassline from the original and elevates the tune with a synth-drenched, uplifting feel. Extremely well-produced, we’re grateful that Option 4 has been kind enough to give both of these fantastic tunes away for free! Grab them below. √+

“The waves ≠ raves consists of hand-picked gems that inspire us, tickling and tempting our creative juices. Some are old, some are new, but it is what we are listening to now. They are groovey, flowing, and sun-kissed just like that perfect wave. They are uplifting and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. They sound the best with a babe in one hand, a cold brewski in the other, and the sand beneath your feet. Stay Dreamy.”
Foreword from Viceroy:
While the music market continues to grow into an ‘over saturation’ of electronic blogs, the majority of them seem to only know how to post those same absolute jams that their competition managed to post in previous features. That alone is not enough to make a blog stand out in my mind. I have been and always will be a huge fan of Gotta Dance Dirty. Why? They not only have the most up to date jams from the big dogs, but they support up and coming artists too. How many well-established blogs do that? I can’t name many. Supporting my summery beats since I started in February, Gotta Dance Dirty has given me the honor of hand selecting the tracks for Waves ≠ Raves Mixtape Vol. 14. Looking for some sun-kissed disco to cap off your summer fun? Look no further.
Enjoy, and stay frothy my friends.
