To kick things off for my residency @ the infamous Dim Mak Studios (aka Dim Mak Tuesdays) in 2012, I have created a new mixtape to get you all hyped for the year to come. I’ve packed it with several of the artists that DMS has hosted and some of the upcoming talent, as well as some of my own forthcoming releases and friends too! So grab ahold of the new year with this boomer, and I hope to see you all on Tuesdays @ Dim Mak Studios.
Yesterday, our boys Josh & Angelo from PeaceTreaty sent us over a pair of previews of their upcoming remixes that will be hitting Beatport in the next couple of weeks, and we are impressed as usual. The first track is a hot n’ heavy new take on Moby‘s ‘After,’ complete with a light synthy Big Room build and a heavy bassline drop that I can’t wait to hear on some professional speakers. Already gaining support from Steve Angello, Hardwell, and Tommy Trash, this remix will be released on Moby’s Lil Idiot Records on Monday, October 31st. The second remix on our plate is Diplo & Oliver Twizt‘s ‘Go,’ and personally, I can really hear the always-improving PeaceTreaty signature sound in this one. This EP will be released on Mad Decent on November 8th, and you probably have heard it played out already by some people you may have heard of: Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Afrojack, Chuckie, and Mr. Aoki. Keep ’em coming fellas!
Still riding the recent chart-topping success of ‘One Love’, TJR delivers again with another massive re-creation of the hip-hop anthem ‘California Love.’ The track was officially released today on Pop Rox Muzik, an LA/NY label known for their big room electro house cross-over sound. California Love was recently debuted on BBC Radio 1 by Dirty Dutch kingpin Chuckie, and has already gained massive support from Fatboy Slim, Chris Lake, Mightyfools, and Loose Cannons. Think you’re excited about it already? In celebration of the release, we have teamed up with Pop Rox and TJR to give you 2 versions of the track exclusively on GDD – for FREE.
It’s another EP release party this Thursday at VS. in Santa Monica! Charles I will be celebrating the release of his Out of this World EP, which made its exclusive debut on Beatport today on Stardust Records!

We’ll also have ///BONES, aRod, and Hohme on hand for quality tunage, so come on out for this great occasion!

I am so glad that I am no longer in college because the commencement of my summer is now completely dependent on the weather. With that said, it is a lovely 87ºF today in sunny, sweaty Los Angeles, which means it is time to put away the pea coats and bring on the boardies + bikinis. The month of April is now over, and in Las Vegas, pools have opened and day parties are in full swing. If you recall earlier this year, a few of us were lucky enough to head out to the brand new Marquee nightclub in the Cosmopolitan Hotel to do a review of the production and main resident Roger Sanchez. Well, after seeing what they had to offer in January, both aesthetically and musically, the only thing on our minds was splashing around in that pool to some big tunes this summer.
GDD™ will be giving away 2passes for all Marquee Dayclub and Nightclub ‘United’ events for THE ENTIRE WEEKEND (4 days!). After testing the waters on our Facebook earlier today, it’s clear that many of you will be making the sinful trip out to the desert for the weekend, but for others, this could just be your reason to go. See below for entry details…
To enter to win…
• You must ‘Like’ the Gotta Dance Dirty and Marquee Facebook pages
• Tag both GDD and Marquee in your status mentioning the contest/how badly you want to win/how awesome Vegas is/how awesome GDD is/etc.

Winner will be announced one week from today, so grab this new Vegas mix onURBfrom Fatboy Slim to get you ready! ________
What’s up my fellow dirty dancers, I hope your weekend is treating you as well as it is treating me. This has been a great week in music, whether your in Miami or not (and if you are, I want you to know I hate you a little bit). Anyways, I was very honored when FuzZ, Avedon and Zedex all decided to contribute to this weeks dirt! From complex IDM to French House, the three artists certainly differ in their sound, but not their unmistakable talent. With a wide range of songs to choose from on this weeks dirt, there is certainly something for all of you. So without further ado, myself, Fuzz, Avedon and Zedex present this week’s dirt after the jump!
*Check out the exclusive tracks from Fuzz, Zedex & St. Andrew!
