IT’S ANOTHER ROUND OF THE DIRT, HAAAAAAAAAAAAN! A DAY LATE FOR Y’ALLS LONG WEEKEND! *AIRHORN*
In true-to-form fashion, I went a little ham on the R&B influences and remixes… there’s a lot of good stuff circulating right now and whilst still full of summer-driven high serotonin levels I’m basically only listening to stuff that I can sing/rap along to or dance to… or both. There’s a good sprinkling of emotion and a touch of acid just to round it off. Can’t be on one all the time you know. Also I think the median age for the remixers/producers on these tracks is around 20 which means A. I’m getting old and B. college-level guys are way more into Amerie and Ciara (publicly) than I remember.
My good bud Burn Unit really vibing off the British & American producers and vibes, lots of feel-good stuff in his picks from quite a few budding producers.
You can of course download each individual track via Soundcloud but each of us have zipped our selections up for you for easy download purposes. Trust us. – Laura
Our very good friends Charles I& Tre have joined forces for a debut collaboration titled, Satellites. A project that has been months in the making, Satellites is a true balance of talent between the two producers — a release characterized by finesse and a shared love of good ol’ fashioned Techno. While the guys originally planned to shop this baby around to some labels, they kindly decided to give it away to the masses for free today. In addition to 3 brand new originals, the Satellites EP also features 3 remixes from a trio of other GDD™ brethren — Casino Gold, Craig Williams, and Damaged Goods. Download all 6 tracks below.
Techno reigns supreme this Thursday at The Central in Santa Monica as we welcome Light Year, Craig Williams, Casino Gold, and a special guest to VERSUS. Light Year has been having one hell of a year, with his huge hit “Moderation” played all over the world as well as recent festival sets at HARD Summer and Identity San Diego. We are excited to welcome him back to the West Side along with a very special guest from Canada.
With early support from Fake Blood, TAI, Shinichi Osawa, Blatta & Inesha, Mustard Pimp, Shameboy, and, well, you get the idea, this release off CRUX Records (their 50th) is what we commonly refer to in the music industry as massssivvv. With absolutely stellar remix efforts by GDD™ homies Casino Gold and ex-Hey Today! badman Nickel, this three track EP from iPunk is one that can reignite a dance floor at 3AM no matter how bad you are at multiple choice:
For Part Deux of the Consign to Oblivion mixtapes we have another 30 mins of Techno mayhem mixed by B&I. The single, with post-apocalyptic remixes from Peo De Pitte and The Sneekers, is out today on U&A Recordings.
We’re just a short 7 months and change away from the End of the World, and our good friends Casino Gold and Blatta & Inesha are suggesting we all merely Consign to Oblivion. Their new collaborative single, Consign to Oblivion, will be out next Monday, May 7th, on U&A Recordings.
The brothers behind Casino Gold have put together this promotional mix to get us doomsday prepped for the release. It features some unreleased originals and some more techno rave weapons from the likes of Alex Metric, Brodinski, and more.
We’ll be back next Monday, the date of the release, with links to the EP and Part II of the Consign to Oblivion mix series curated by none other than Blatta & Inesha! Stay tuned. Track list after the jump…

Allow me if you will, to introduce the Brothers Matsuk, Luke and Zack, now and forever known to you as Casino Gold. If you’re on top of your shit and into future techno, or Techno Nouveau as our Italian friends Blatta & Inesha like to call it, then you’ll probably have heard of them. With a slew of stellar remixes in the last few months and some highly touted forthcoming releases their talent is set to really gain some attention in 2012. With imminent dates in Santa Cruz this weekend and both in and around Mexico City the next weekend they felt like bestowing a little gift upon the masses, and now you have 30 mins of fire to get you through humpday and on to the weekend.
Grab the mix right here, and read on after the break to hear some previews of their forthcoming tracks!

1. Modern; up to date.
2. New and different, often fashionably so.
Music is constantly changing, evolving, progressing. As we explored about a year ago – when debate erupted over our 2010 ‘Part V’ wrap-up – Techno isn’t a specific sound; Techno is a lifestyle, a dingy basement and a 6am sunrise, an attitude, and nothing right now is oozing this attitude quite like the sounds of Italian duo Blatta & Inesha.
They’ve coined their music “Techno Nouveau,” and here it is. True to form the mixing is spot-fucking-on, with my favorite transition clocking in just after the 37-minute mark, straight into their recent Dim Mak release Senegal.
GDD™ also wants you to help us help the artists help you. As of this writing, B&I are 89 ‘Likes’ away from 13,000 on Facebook, and recent collab partners and rising LA duo Casino Gold are closing in on 2,000. Help us push these numbers to the next level by reposting, sharing, tweeting, re-blogging this mix, etc., and GDD™ will release an exclusive firsthand preview of their new collab Consign to Oblivion, due out next year! Trust me, I have the full version and listened to it about 40 times last week! So get the mix (click the artwork above), and then get the track listing for this stellar mix after the jump.
