My Socal brethren – this Thursday in San Diego, our good friends over at Dubfrequency will be bringing down BetatraXx to deliver a monster set fully equiped with his live drummer Niq G. If you didn’t catch them at Westbeach Music Festival or the HARD Pre-Party, here is your chance. Also taking to the stage will be SD natives Bubble Gum Sci-Fi, Ladlesmith, Dr. Schlongo and myself.
pic: Viva Pip Pip While Gotta Dance Dirty™ may be your one stop shop for all the latest tracks from your favorite producers, we strive to show you up-and-comers whose sounds are filling up our iPad nanos and DJ playlists. Today, we’ll feature some tunes from two Californian duos and one grumpy Canadian with no friends (just kidding John Ro, we love you.)
• John Roman – Sphere By the time the creepy robot voice and “Wake Up”-esque drips built up and dropped, I just couldn’t help myself: I had to dance dirty. Be on the lookout for John Roman’s “Sing!” EP dropping next weekend!
He’s back! The groovy Scot will be making another appearance this Friday at CONTROL in Hollywood along with LA’s own Acid Girls and GDD™ friendly and 1/2 of Bubblegum Sci Fi, Anthony Ross. If you have still yet to see one of GRUM‘s performances, I highly recommend coming out to this event. Prepare to dance like you are in slow motion in a wind tunnel, with seductive sounds ubiquitous throughout the ample-spaced Avalon.

You know you have the flu when wacking-off doesn’t even feel good. But, it also means a lotta good music for you! Well, actually tons of very good music. While I’ve been aching and tossing in bed, the past month has been a billowing heaven for awesome nu-disco and feel good jams. I’ll let the music speak for itself, and make sure you download ALL of it, because yes, it ALL is worth it. You can thank me later.
OK.ok, i know this was #1 on hypeM and blogged all over the place, but i couldn’t resist. Its just that damn good. Its indie-infused which i’m a huge sucker for, and we gotta give it up for our friends, LightsOverLA.
Barretso is one of my new favorite acts, if you’re just reading this now, grab the previous post here. This song is pure glitchy happy glory. Keep your eyes peeled for both Redial and Barretso in the future, they’re taking over a light up dance floor near you.
Funky fresh! All of this new grum is really giving me the heebee-geebies. Here’s the video to his new single “Can’t Shake this feeling.” Its out may 3rd directed by the General assembly and produced by TownHall.
