Theo Keating AKA Fake Blood has been given the reins to the 69th episode of the legendary FABRICLIVE mix series, with the launch scheduled for this Friday at the killer London venue with sets from Fake Blood, Boy 8-Bit, and Paul Woolford. The mix CD will be released on the 20th and will feature a grip of new and exclusive material from Keating’s Blood Music. In a different promo twist, Fabric had Fake Blood take to the streets of East London to showcase another great ability of his, graffiti art. Have a look at the video above and watch out for FABRICLIVE 69.

Self-described as Post-Apocalyptic R&B/Soul, Minneapolis quartet, Nyteowl, are not your average electronic group. Sexy and soulful with an undeniable 80s electronic influence, Nyteowl use deep basslines and airy synths to create their idiosyncratic sound, which is why they got picked up by Juno Records‘ brand new London sub-imprint, Love Interest, for their new single, ‘Love Of Mine.’ Complete with remixes from Boy 8-Bit, Mighty Mouse, Brassica, and Hyboid, the Love Of Mine EP is an all around, top notch release. Pick it up on Juno on Monday the 30th and stream the entire release below. √+ Continue Reading
We can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are to be bringing VS. back home to the West Side for good. On behalf of Gotta Dance Dirty and DANCEiSM, we thank you so much for supporting our move downtown, but we have realized that The Central Social Aide & Pleasure Club is where this party needs to be. So Los Angeles, this week we welcome a HUGE comeback show with our buddy (and current Penthouse roommate) Nom De Strip, who’s here all the way from Scotland to make this Thursday the best VS. we’ve ever had. If you’re heading to EDC this weekend in Vegas, warm up those dancing shoes before the hot drive out. If you’re not going to EDC, come out and see one of the best up and coming producers out there. It’s a win-win kiddos. Supporting the Scot will be your favorite residents, ///BONES and Ben Oprstu, as well as our friends The KiD and Zhu.
The party will be FREE before 11PM, but you MUST RSVP at DANCEiSM.com.

This Thursday we will be celebrating cinco de mayo in the GDD fashion, bringing you yet another rockin VERSUS party at The Central in Santa Monica. This week, we have a real treat for you, as we host the Bang Gang Deejays tour with a special perfomance as their side project for Turbo Records, The Finger Prince. You should remember fawning over the Planet Turbo EP, and his remix of Boy 8-Bit’s ‘Yard Birds’… and if not, we have that for you below. On top of that, we also welcome Pasternak from Lemonade, all the way from NYC. If that doesn’t make you drop your chalupa then we’ll have you know that Danceism wild child Ben Oprstu will be laying down a set, along with Dub Frequency’s Bixel Boys and your one and only GDD groove-master A.Rod. Make sure you make it out early, because we have surprises planned for the beginning of the noche. Dirty Dancing contests? You bet. Free tequila shots? Let’s hope so. GDD stickers on your girlfriend? Count on it. ¡Vamanos!

It’s time to unleash the fucking Dada once again at CONTROL in Hollywood this Friday. The Swedish party boys have had quite a weekend in the Southland already the past few days, with appearances at both the Heaven & Hell event in San Diego and Sutra in Newport Beach, but they will be heading up the 405 to play this Friday alongside a quartet of serious supporting talent including Boy 8 Bit, Huoratron, Paparazzi, and ///BONES.
The eclectic duo on Government Records from South London known as Loose Cannons have just come out with some brand new crunchers that I think some of you electro-heads might enjoy. They describe their influences as “French kick drums, Italian clothes, and Dutch morals,” and say that their sound is more like “Italian kick drums, Dutch clothes, and Italian morals.” I’ll let you be the judge. Bangarang.
While our friends to the south will be getting HARD to Fake Blood and Boy 8-Bit on Saturday, we here in San Francisco have the head start on our weekends thanks to Blasthaus, who is hosting both acts at Mezzanine alongside local DJ heros Nisus and Sleazemore. Tickets are still on sale! Mr. Berry and I will be in attendance, passing out our brand new Gotta Dance Dirty stickers like genital warts in Tijuana.
