It’s been a journey. Since its inception in the summer of 2010, our longest lasting weekly feature, The Dirt, has brought a staggering amount of free music to the masses, and we’re proud to still be here 100 editions and 100 Dirt Babes in the books. It’s a tough feat to get these tracks together each week (probably why we have some gaps in the mix here and there, apologies), but it’s been an amazing experience sharing music with all of you, which, of course, is the main reason why we’re here.
We wanted to put together something special for the centennial episode, so 11 of our writers have included 2 songs each — one from one of the 99 past Dirts that we’ve posted and any other song that we felt was exceptional enough to make the cut of such an outstanding post. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed putting them together. Here’s to another 100. Continue Reading

For you bassheads out there that wanted a bit more bump and grunge to the thumpy new track from Kanye & co., here’s a Dubstep remix of ‘Mercy’ from JAM3S K3NN3DY that will satisfy your needs. James is an up and comer working as a sound engineer for Interscope Records here in Los Angeles, and after opening up for Steve Aoki and Datsik on the Deadmeat Tour this spring as well as for Modestep‘s recent tour of the US, it’s obvious that his DJ skills are being valued as much as his profession in the studio. Check out more of his portfolio on Soundcloud and download this beast below. Continue Reading

We’ll have plenty of bass at the Avalon in Hollywood this Friday night as heavy hitters Dieselboy, Downlink, Smash Gordon, Precept, and TeaLong take the stage at CONTROL. Personally, I’m hoping to hear some great Drum N’ Bass from one of the leaders of the genre, Damian Higgins AKA Dieselboy. He’s been around the scene throughout its ups and downs, and his supergroup known as Planet of the Drums is now a staple at every Bass music tent in the US. Bring on the womps and weirdness.

This week we bring you another special edition of our weekly piece, “The Dirt” by the up and coming Canadian production duo, Botnek. You may remember them from a post GDD™ resident ///Bones put up a few weeks ago featuring their tracks “Dozer” and “Pop Music.” We are not the only ones to recently take notice of this fast-rising DJ duo, as their unreleased track “Owls” was featured by famed Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac on her mix show this past week, and Radio 1 DJ Kissy Sellout has championed their sound so much that he asked them to do an official remix of his newest track “Homesick.” If you like what you hear and want even more Botnek, make sure to pick up their first EP “Plonk” which was officially released just TODAY over on Beatport.
You can check out all their newest tracks + exclusive Debut/Download of a killer new track of theirs after the jump! Enjoy!
