Found another diamond in the rough. The Venice Beach native Erik Wilkinson aka Wilks has only emerged on soundcloud a few months ago, but already has the right idea by releasing free originals from the get go. The style provokes classic house chords carried by deep basslines and funky riffs, with vox samples from the likes of Q-Tip, Bob Marley, and The Chili Peppers that prove hauntingly perfect. His most recent single “Ghetto” is below, along with with my other favorites from his so far. Grab these below and follow this dude, let’s see where he goes…
Crosstown Rebels has enlisted T-E-E-D. to mix the Get Lost VI compilation, getting us very excited for perhaps our finest night of the summer, if not the year… GET LOST LA. Digging very deep, quirky, soulful, a very nice eclectic mix of treats and treasures– particularly the end of track #4, Axel Boman – Klinsmann. So cosmic.
The young LA based label Prep School Recordings have delivered a summer-solid release to carry through this seasons warmer climate. Young guns SNBRN (formerly of No Body) and Mossberg Pump (LED) have cultivated a deeper disco vibe in this 2-track EP, capturing the sound of their Southern California-based origins and as they put are “As fresh as a poolside mojito.” The release just dropped today on Beatport and iTunes, and fans of French Express, Eskimo, and Future Boogie will be all over these tracks. Have a listen below and support these fresh faces!
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. Grab the free download below.
