Portugal’s maestro of deeply tinged disco will be gracing the carpet at Bardot tomorrow night for our monthly GDD showcase. After putting out his mind-bending edit of Nicolas Jaar’s And I Say a few months ago, he’s followed it up with some magical remixes of Poland’s Kamp! and fellow Portuguese artist Moullinex, both of which are out now via Discotexas. Tickets for the show are available here.
If you’re unfamiliar with Ali Love, then before diving further into this post, I’d suggest first listening to Benediction, last year’s unofficial feel-good anthem of the year. Ali switches over from the Hot Creations camp to the equally reputed Crosstown Rebels imprint for ‘Emperor’. The package includes a dub and two remixes, my favorite of which comes from Ellum front man Maceo Plex, who takes an otherwise good track and catapults it into the ‘timeless’ category. The release is slated for early March, just in time for many a WMC arsenal.
Los Angeles producer/DJ Steve Huerta is back again with an impressive two track EP that just came out on the petFood imprint. Drawing from where he left off after his collaboration with Prince Club, ‘Do Good To Me’ follows a similar suit with tight percussion, swirling pads, nifty vocal stabs and a punchy square bassline. The second track on the EP ‘Revenge’ has all the characteristics you’d want for a set-starter, roof-top pool party, or a sunrise serenade. You can pick up the EP on Beatport.
Thee Cool Cats are a new Deep House/Nu-Disco duo from Mexicali, Baja California, one half coming from The Disco Villains & the other from Take Off. To properly introduce themselves, the guys have given us two exclusive tracks to give away!
Gangsta Lean brings together deep house and hip hop influenced samples, thus, G-House.
When the idea of the GDD Advent Calendar first began circling a few weeks ago, Canadian artist Sean Roman was one of the first producers who I was itching to find out what goodies he had hiding. Just as I presumed, he immediately shot over four massive tracks, and after a quick listen, the DJ side of me wanted to hoard them all as secret weapons. I’m still on the fence about giving away Stutter.
While Miami is most notorious for the madness that occurs every March for WMC and Ultra Music Festival, thousands of art and music lovers from across the world converge in the beginning of December for Art Basel. We kicked things off in style last night at our weekly Slap & Tickle party at the beloved Electric Pickle with LA’s Rick Rude, and are gearing up for a massive evening tomorrow night at one of Miami’s newest venues, The Garage. The rising UK duo Bondax will be preforming an exclusive Art Basel set alongside Body High label boss Samo Sound Boy. The best part about this event is that its FREE, as long as you head over to the Slap & Tickle page and send us your names before 6pm tomorrow. To get you in the mood, check out the latest Slap & Tickle promo mix.
To celebrate arguably one of the biggest tunes of the year, our UK friend and familiar Birdee has just released disco touch-up of Duke Dumont’s “The Giver” – for FREE on his soundcloud. Here’s what he had to say:
“I love the original and felt a disco edit would have worked well with the vocal…hope you enjoy it!”
