After an epic saga of a weekend @ Coachella Music Festival, the GDD™ crew return from the desert with a battered brain of new music to better prepare for the massive summer to come. This week, our very own Bones and Toks have answered the call to serving you with a dirty bundle of tunes fit for the festival-goer in all of us. Whether from artists that played Coachella, or just some of the key sounds that embody the stages, this team has it down for you and each specific playlist. Get your sweaty wristbands on them and let a’ rip.
To kick things off proper for the start of madness in the desert, VERSUS this week we’ll feature some heavy artillery to get your Coachella juices flowing. Making a stop on their US Tour, the Italian bad boys Blatta & Inesha will be gracing the decks for their second time. On top of that, we have the LA debut from the NY-based hood haus sounds of RL Grime. Supporting the night will be local heroes Matzerath (Dim Mak), Bangarang, and Zach V. Whether you’re going week one, week two, or not at all, come get your festival fix and forget about Friday morning.
The spirit of festival season is upon us, and with Coachella around the corner what better to hype you dirty dancers then with a BIG remix of the Gotye hit “Somebody That I Used To Know” that is more likely to be heard roaring from the SAHARA tent than the outdoor stage. Our friend and Overthrow brethren Damaged Goods took the indie anthem and put it into big room overdrive. Free Download?BOOM.
If you were at Coachella in 2010 and didn’t see Orbital then I weep for you. Ever since ‘Halcyon + On + On’ graced my ears in Hackers, there has always been a warm spot in my heart for the British duo, and now after eight long years, Paul and Phil Hartnoll have reunited for their new album, Wonky, set for release on the 3rd of April. With under 3 months to go until the unveiling, Orbital has been kind enough to feed eager fans with a free download of one track off of the album, ‘Never,’ which also comes equipped with a music video that takes you on a sped-up driving tour of London. I’ll leave you with the exciting and inspiring words of Phil Hartnoll…
“For me these feel like the most enjoyable Orbital times that we’ve ever had. It’s just getting better and better. It feels like a new beginning.”
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day! We have news featuring Flying Lotus & his Coachella plans, Orbital’s new album, Prodigy’s Warrior’s Dance Festival, and some fresh listening material from TheFatRat. Please read on after the jump.
