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.
The recent release of Dim Mak Record’s freshman class compilation NEW NOISE VOL. 4 featured many new faces on the scene, one of which being our LA Aussie mate Craig Williams leading the brigade with his single “So Shake”.

Listen to it below, and pick it up today on Beatport!
Craig is a Aussie DJ/Producer is on the rise with more remixes in the works for Dim Mak and has much more in store release-wise for the summer including some hot collaborations with Louisahhh!!! of the famed Bromance Records crew & Montreal-House royalty Prince Club.

Another Wednesday brings another installment of our guest mix series, and today we feature our favorite Australian living in Los Angeles, Craig Williams. A master in the studio, Craig astonishes me with his clean productions and remixes, even when he shows me them through an iPod in his Prius 😉 Craig has included a healthy helping of his own originals and remixes in this mix topped with some tracks from BNR, Turbo, and Bromance providing for a bouncy Techno soundtrack to your life for the next 72 minutes. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, watch out for this dude. √+
It only takes hours before the newest popular single gets bombarded with bootleg remixes and spreads like wild fire across the blogosphere. The unique recreations however, are always worth the wait. Our friend and GDD familiar Craig Williams had something to prove towards Tyga’s “Rack City” – fashioning a club worthy ghetto-tech spin on the popularized hip-hop anthem.
The end product is pure gold, straying away from overdone bootleg formula and creating his own monster. We’ve teamed up with Craig Williams to give it away for FREE, so grab it below and let the system crank.
Our long time friend and LA based musician Craig Williams has released his signature Music Sample Pack – a FREE collection of VSTi synthesizer presets and analogue synthesizer samples for all your studio needs and desires. Here’s what Craig had to say about the release:
