In anticipation for one of my favorite holidays (mostly because it almost always lasts WAY longer than a day, and you definitely can’t say that about 4th of July now can you?) I’ve decided to bring you the unofficial chemical sponsor of this fine day we call Halloween for this edition of Science Sundays: Sucrose.

Sucrose is some pretty basic stuff. Just table sugar. The ultimate “guilty pleasure” and sworn enemy of weight-conscious folks the world over. It’s what makes things we eat sweet! When listening to the tracks below, know that I am erring on the side of an eight-year-old and NOT your dietician and saying you can have all the sugar you want. These songs are, for lack of a better term, pretty freakin’ sweet. Some are just feel good-tracks, a nice little boost of energy like a handful of M&Ms. Some are full on guilty pleasures, like that second brownie you definitely would be embarrassed to be caught eating but loved every delicious morsel. Either way, the moral of the story here is that a little sugar in your day is a good thing. This halloween, grab your ring pop & go dance the night away.

This past WMC, we had Yuksek slated to play at two of our parties. We were devastated to learn that the Frenchman had to cancel all his WMC dates to illness, so we’re elated to announce that he will finally be performing on the red carpet at Bardot this Thursday in Miami. Supporting Yuksek will be UK bliss-pop sensation Chad Valley, who is set to release his debut album ‘Young Hunger’ on October 30th. Pre-sale tickets for the event are $12.

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.”

As the seasons are slowly shifting, the music follows suit.  Light and cheerful riffs are slowly paving the way for deeper disco sounds.  Sounds that will resonate throughout a nighttime hideout and keep the kids dancing.  Steel drums and synths are still there, just down-tempo and with a heavier groove.  Peel the paint off the walls and lets boogey.

I know what you’re thinking – Yes, that dirt babe has a GDD tattoo. Well, according to photoshop she does. The 42nd edition of The Dirt is a good one. Encompassing multiple genres and artistic styles, Jonah and Bones have come up with a 10-pack of tunes that hit all the right spots to get you ready for the weekend. Let’s get dirty.

1st Part: jonahberry – The Dirt #42 .zip

• Dennis Ferrer – Hey Hey (Atjazz Remix) √++
A great Deep House track. I love the continuous build of the vocalist’s intensity. A must have for late nights and early mornings.

• Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Trouble (Chad Valley Remix) √+ [Beatport]
Mellow, summertime vibes. From it’s opening avian sounds to Orlando’s soothing vocals, this remix released on Polydor earlier this summer will be a crowd pleaser to any sun-drenched soiree.

• Brenmar – Waiting On (Original Mix) √+ [Purchase]
This track was released on Buraka Som Sistema‘s Enchufada label for their 6th edition of Hard Ass Sessions. If you’re into Kuduro, you’re into this.

• Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team – Bassface (Ardalan Remix) √+ [Beatport]
It was such a pleasure having Teki Latex play our VS. party last week. This is the remix of Bassface that he played and the crowd went wild.

• Duck Sauce – Radio (Bastille Edit) √+
Our friends, Bastille, just came out with this edit of Duck Sauce‘s latest track, and it’s a goodie. 100% party starter. Come on out to VS. in Santa Monica tomorrow night to see these guys get down.

2nd PART: BONES – The Dirt #42.zip

HOUSE
• Spencer & Hill – Shy Boy (Ron Vellow Remix) √+
A groove master killer track, first time I heard this I was bouncing off the walls. Vellow takes S&H’s progressive house vibes with soulful vocals and rips in an unforgiving bassline that makes this a huge club favorite.

DIRTY
• Etienne De Crecy – Hope (Alternate Studio Version) √+
The already well known track got a rework by the Cube master himself, and it proves superior for the DJ set. Perfect if you’re like me and love a vocal intro you can blend into the previous track before it rips into its own transition.

MOOMBAH
• Slap In The Bass – Egypt (Neki Stranac Moombahton Edit) √+
First heard this seeing Nadastrom @ HARD Summer this year. The bass in this is humongous, definitely meant for big systems to do it its justice. If you dare download this one make sure you have some low end to really give the full effect. You’ll know what I’m talking about if you do.

TECHY
• Alex Kenji – Let’s Get This Thing Started (Original Mix) √+
Great intro track for those tech house, minimal or fidget sets. This sample has been used in several different tracks, but Alex Kenji proves it’s not overdone and makes sure of that in this funky techy tune.

DISCO
• Tensnake – Need Your Lovin (Original Mix) √+
You can’t go wrong with most of the disco production these days, and one of the leaders in that regime is Tensnake. His live album is pure gold from start to finish, and this is one of the many tracks you can’t listen to just once. You’ll get hooked and I’m betting this will get some serious play in your automobile. Make sure to pick up the Tensnake live mix HERE.

It seems as if Edwin Van Cleef will be coming out with a new mixtape every month, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. The French House/Space Disco/Sexy Time Music producer from Leeds has caught the ear of many in the past year or so, and I’m hoping he continues to impress until he can get out to the US for a few shows. Don’t sleep on this perfect-for-summertime mix below featuring the original, ‘Don’t Stop,’ from EVC as well as an opening TEED track remixed by Chad Valley that I can’t stop listening to, and be on the look out for Edwin Van Cleef’s Never Sleep Alone At Night EP slated for release in late August.

Our buddy Orlando, also known as Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, was recently in Los Angeles a couple weeks ago shooting the music video for his new single, Trouble, slated for release on Polydor Records on June 20th. The video, directed and produced by General Assembly, features Orlando in the midst of a strange and maverick party with some interesting characters all around. Take a look and make sure to keep your eyes out on June 20th for the release including remixes from Jamie Jones, Chad Valley, and Lapalux.
