The Brooklynites, Sam Walker & Gavin Royce, have been taking the deep house world by storm with their distinctive productions and groovy sets. In celebration of their hometown gig at Marquee NY this Friday, they’ve given us the exclusive on an outstanding mix featuring selections from Waze & Odyssey, Maya Jane Coles, Breach, and Bonobo, amongst others. Additionally, we had a quick chat with them to discuss a bit about their background, the Brooklyn scene, what fans can expect from their set this Friday, and more. Listen/download the mix below, and find the tracklist, along with the Q&A, after the jump.

It was surprising to hear this Lana Del Rey song so much in sets lately from the likes of Tiesto and Kaskade, but then again not really. And I can’t say I was even that excited to click play on another LDR remix. But Serge Devant went for a more hypnotic and sexy deep house remix to the original, and it’s much unlike any rendition out there. Stripping away the track to it’s bare essentials, then pitching Lana’s voice, and sampling only what he needs to complete the track in proper remix manner, makes this track interesting to me. Be sure to check back and subscribe to his Soundcloud channel to be on top of when this get’s released as a free download.
Apologies for the hiatus, friends. Last week that evil siren Vegas clutched the GDD™ crew tightly in her grasp and forbade us from blessing your ears with that week’s dosage of The Dirt. Alas, here we go, with ten tracks curated by our own Troy Kurtz & Burn Unit, fresh off two killer sets aboard the GDD™ Presents: Wide Awake Art Car Stage at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas. Get it into you.
Perhaps for the better, LA has temporarily lost one of its top producers to the UK. Yung Taylor Freels, who goes by the name Urulu, has quickly established himself atop the ranks of sophisticated house listeners with a grip of chart-topping tracks on Exlpoited, petFood, and most recently Needwant. He’s reworked The Weeknd’s ‘Twenty Eight‘ into a balearic symphony of warm pads and soft vocal croons. If you find yourself sailing around with a bevy of babes, you’d most definitely want to impress with this tune, however, it still pairs very well with your morning coffee.

Duke Dumont stormed onto the radars of the entire dance community towards the back half of last year with his chart topping hit ‘The Giver‘ and has not stopped in 2013. He rifled back with a banging Essential Mix on BBC1 as well as reaching the #1 spot on iTunes in the UK with a massive bomb ‘Need U 100%.’ Next Tuesday, he graces the carpet at Bardot in Miami for our weekly Slap & Tickle party alongside residents Troy Kurtz, Santiago Caballero, Panic Bomber, and Pirate Stereo.

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.
