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!
*Also, be on the lookout for Charles I and my upcoming EP.
It’s that time of the week for The Dirt, and for this 63rd issue, I want to introduce to you our newest member to the GDD™ team, Korb. We’re providing variety and of course quality, to help bring you into the weekend. Check out the streams and commentary after the jump, then go to the GDD™ Facebook page to download the .zip with all of the tracks!
After yesterday’s rain, it’s a clear Wednesday over Los Angeles and we might actually have a Daft Punk rumor worth believing. Read up on the rumor, an EDM tribute at this year’s Grammys, and Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy in Miami after the jump.
Fresh from destroying dance floors down under, Jack Beats are returning to the UK to headline “The Revolution Tour.” The dynamic duo of Ben Geffin & Niall Dailly are working alongside the masters behind Deadmau5 & Daft Punk’s live production, The Bionic League, to “revolutionize” their live show. The age of DJ’s performing on a table is over, as fans and artists are demanding visual components from shows. “The Revolution Tour” goes one step further, incorporating seizure-inducing visual elements with a fan based social media component. Fans can upload photos to the Jack Beats Facebook and become part of the production.
Happy Friday! We’ve made through yet another week and I have another GDD™ Morning Update to close it out. Today’s news features Electronic Music Grammy nominations w/ Skrillex, the Future Music Festival lineup, Boys Noize & Mr. Oizo start Handbrakes, The Chemical Brothers’ live DVD, & LCD Soundsystem’s final show documentary. See it all after the jump.
Good morning, I hope you all had a great weekend! We have another update with a wealth of news concerning Justice on their new album, Dada Life’s live webcast, Fedde Le Grand’s North American tour, the SnowGlobe lineup, a possible Deep Dish reunion, Universal & Sony buying EMI, Daft Punk, and the electronic music scene in Las Vegas. Read more after the jump.
As we wait (optimistically) for the return of the infamous robot duo, we have remixes of their tracks to delve into and this production from the rising Los Angeles dubstep producer, Schoolboy, is an excellent reinvention of the Daft Punk classic, “Da Funk”. In the beginning, Schoolboy introduces the old familiar melody early on, teases with a pre-build up, and then the actual build up sets in with great positioning of a sample until the massive drop. Don’t let your tiny laptop speakers hold you back, be sure to play this through a large system with plenty of bass (or good headphones) to experience it’s full potential.
TONIGHT the Avalon in Hollywood will play host to a mind-blowing, highly anticipated live set from Ed Banger‘s SebastiAn. It’s been over 4 years since the last time I saw SebastiAn when he played one of the best dance music events I’ve ever attended. Yes, that would be Daft Punk, Ratatat, SebastiAn, and Kavinksy at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles in July of 2007. With a newly orchestrated live set as well as supporting sets from Sharooz, Destructo, Brazzabelle, and Andy D’Arrigo, I’m sure this will be a night of CONTROL to remember.
