Coldplay released a new single this past Tuesday and it seems like the internet could not get over how much it sounded like Bon Iver. Regardless of their new sound, it was only a matter of time before everyone jumped on the bootleg remix train. The first one that caught my eye was this subtle, yet dancey take by NYC resident and Parisian transplant LEVI. Available for free download via his facebook page it’s chill in all the best ways.
Just when you though one of the best tracks from everyones favorite Parisian was left for dead… our boy Valentino Khan has revived Gesaffelstein’s Bromance monster “Control Movement” and beefed it up for the main stage. Khan toured this year with The Bloody Beetroots and then recently with Skrillex, so this one has been heard far and wide… now its yours for FREE!

Last week Deadmau5 got the internets all astir when he announced he would be leaving twitter for good, and in the same breath dropped a few previews of his up and coming tracks on soundcloud. While we mourn the loss of one of our favorite twitter personalities, we can’t wait to get a listen to what Joel has in store. Lucky for us LEVI seemed to be one of the few who got a jump on the mau5′s “Drop the Poptart” preview and produced one hell of a bootleg.
Aside from the 303 big room remix from Calvin Harris, the mysterious Aussie duo known as The Only have answered the call to taking Fat Boy Slim & Riva Starr’s summer anthem “Eat Sleep Rave Repeat” and sending it through the festival meat grinder. The original’s funny vocal sample helps carry the tune along, but these boys put the emphasis back on the drop. Fans of Bingo Players, Felguk and Clockwork will be all over this one… grab the exclusive download below!
*Be on the look out for The Only’s new single “Back To The Program out Aug 16th, and their forthcoming remix for What So Not on Skrillex’s imprint OWSLA!

Continuing the abundance of giveaways as weather gets warmer, we have another summer heater for your vibe cultivation. Our SF friends WhiteNoize did a remix of their favorite classic Reggae/Hip-Hop track “Here Comes The Hotstepper.” You know you’ve sang the chorus to this at some point in your life! The boys put it through the chop shop and out pops an uptempo house groove that breaks down into the original and back out again. NAAAAA NA-N-NA-NA, NA-N-NA-NA, NA-N-NA-NA-NANA-NANA!
At the ripe age of 38, Parov Stelar‘s wisdom and experience have guided him to create some of the best sounds in the music industry. Electro swing is one of the more intoxicating genre’s in the electronic spectrum as the four on the floor beat intermixes with heavy syncopation and live instrumentation. As the industry progresses it’s almost inevitable for it to head in the electro swing direction. This Nico Pusch bootleg features pumping piano chords that preface the trumpet fanfare being belted out in the chorus as Nico Pusch puts his own original flair into the song.
Our buddy Clockwork graciously put up all 14 individual bootlegs from his 15K pack for FREE on his Soundcloud last night as a big thank you to his fans around the globe. If you’ve seen any of his sets over the past few months (including his most recent US tour with Dillon Francis on the Wet & Reckless Tour), you’ll definitely recognize a handful of these secret weapons now released for public consumption. Download all below and give this dude a “Like” on his Facebook to show your gratitude.
It only takes hours before the newest popular single gets bombarded with bootleg remixes and spreads like wild fire across the blogosphere. The unique recreations however, are always worth the wait. Our friend and GDD familiar Craig Williams had something to prove towards Tyga’s “Rack City” – fashioning a club worthy ghetto-tech spin on the popularized hip-hop anthem.
The end product is pure gold, straying away from overdone bootleg formula and creating his own monster. We’ve teamed up with Craig Williams to give it away for FREE, so grab it below and let the system crank.
