Last week, we went into the deep with a special Day Zero edition of our guest mix series from Fur Coat. We now have the Parisian up and comer, Uppermost, on deck with an hour of tasteful French electro. He brings a spiced-up Justice-like sound along with a more disco influenced flavor to keep things varied and fresh. Keep in mind that Uppermost will be releasing a new album soon, so let this mix serve as a warm-up for more great music to come.
Welcome to Vol. 5 of our weekly feature here at Gotta Dance Dirty™ : The Weekly Mix up.Every Friday we post a new selection of mixes from around the world. Some new, some old, and some GDD™ Exclusive.

This week in The Mix: Bassnectar releases his newest ear drum pleaser, our very own ///Bones shows you the deeper side of house music, up and comer Justin Jay does a GDD™ guest mix & Daft Punk throws it down like its 1997.

After several months, a handful of well-crafted remixes/originals, a GDD Spotlight feature, and his worldwide debut at our VS party, TheFatRat is now thoroughly infiltrating the US and the rest of the world. Now that his recognition is growing by the day, I felt it was necessary to venture back to where it all started with one of his first tracks, “Do Be Do Be Do.” He’s been bringing his top quality disco-electro since day one. Enjoy the throwback that started it all and a new DJ tool version to add variety in your sets. If you’re in Colorado, check him out tomorrow night at The Skinny Dip.
What’s up GDD readers? This last weekend I (Tre) put together a mix for all of you that features a plethora of different artists and styles. Get ready to get dark and groovy with this one folks, hope ya dig!
