As some of you may or may not know, we’ve started up a new project here at GDD™, bringing in a video element to the brand called GDD.tv. Our team (big shout out to Alex, Laura D + KMOC) was hard at work out in Las Vegas a couple weeks ago; locking down interviews with some of the scene’s best musicians that were out in the desert for the biggest dance music festival in North America. Our brilliant videographer, Alexander Jacob, has put together a teaser video of some of the artists that we had the pleasure of chatting with, so have a quick watch and keep an eye out for the full interviews to surface in the near future!

After arguably the biggest VS we’ve ever had last week with a special guest set from DIGITALISM, we’re back this week with a showcase of LA talent that are making some big moves in the scene. Our good friends from gLAdiator won this year’s Discovery Project from Insomniac, getting them a spot on the lineup for Electric Daisy Carnival this month. We’ll also be celebrating the EP release of Dom Corleone, a VS veteran and ultimate crowd-pleaser. Support will come from some of our favs: Bastille, Gojira, and Justin Cornwall. Let’s ride the energy from last week into a good one this Thursday!

RSVP HERE for FREE entry before 11PM.

It seems like the gaming industry is becoming more closely tied to the dance music industry with every new big release. It was first brought to my attention last year when the soundtrack to Mortal Kombat featured original productions from Felix Cartal, LA Riots, Harvard Bass, amongst others, and now the bridge has been built once more as SSX, the fierce snowboarding game set for release on EA Sports on February 28th, features a soundtrack full of dance and indie artists including Skrillex, Amon Tobin, Digitalism, and many more. The kind people over at EA have given us a copy of the game to give to one of you lucky readers!

Jonah’s Zip

FEEL GOOD HOUSE
• Noob – Spell (Original Mix) √+ [Beatport] *192 Kbps
This is an uplifting little number from the producer from Bordeaux known as Noob. Released in early October on the Sound Pellegrino label, the Spell EP has already gained some big time attention, including a spot on Digitalism’s I Love Techno Chart on Beatport.

JAARTRONICA
• Nicolas Jaar – Don’t Break My Love (Original Mix) √+
Just released this week on his own Clown & Sunset label, Nicolas Jaar‘s Don’t Break My Love EP is a pure auditory delight. Always unique sound from the 21 year old phenom.

CREEPY TECHNO
• Torb – Rubidrama (Original Mix) √+ [Beatport] *192 Kbps
French producer, Torb, put out Mars Premier as the latest release on Cassius Records, and all 3 tracks on the EP are fuego. Supported by Boys Noize, supported by GDD™.

PARTY IN THE MOONLIGHT HOUSE
• Fonzerelli – Moonlight Party (Tom Glass Remix) √+
I love this song. Brings back memories from a long time ago when we used to blast the original of this song in the dorms (FT) at UCSB. Great new take on it here from Tom Glass.

DOESN’T GET MUCH GROOVIER THAN THIS HOUSE
• Zombie Disco Squad – Piano Man (Original Mix) √++ [Beatport] *192 Kbps
Out on the Made To Play imprint last week, Zombie Disco Squad‘s ‘Piano Man’ is my new favorite single by the guys. Equipped with 4 different mixes of the original, this release is a must have. Buy the whole thang on Beatport now!

TRE’S PICKS

Tre’s Zip

PSYCHEDELIC IDM

FuzZ – Deep *320

FuzZ never has produced anything I didn’t love and Deep is no exception. Deep lures you in with a complex and long intro, only to drop you into a mellow, groovy and psychedelic wonderland that is similar to the best Flying Lotus beats. This track is not one to miss folks, click the link and grab the MP3 now!

FEEL GOOD TECH-HOUSE

YO Bill – Teddy Jammin *320

YO Bill has been kind enough to give away this track exclusively on this weeks dirt! Teddy Jammin is as technical as it is catchy, which can only be a good thing. The track’s groovy vocals have been mixed in with YO Bill’s recognizably intricate percussion to bring you a guaranteed dance floor hit!

JAW DROPPING TECH-HOUSE

Colour – Frequencies Modulate *320

Many of the die-hard Tech fans have been watching Colour with amazement, it seems the English producer really can do no wrong. Don’t believe me? Grab Frequencies Modulate, take a listen and you can send me your apology later. The track takes you on a dark journey that resonates retro-house chords, complex percussion and intricate synthesis. Seriously, grab this jam!

MELODIC ELECTRO

THIEVES – Pousser *320

The up and coming Los Angeles natives, THIEVES always impress me and Pousser is no exception. It’s an original groove that speaks to the duo’s rock roots.

LATE NIGHT LATIN GROOVES

Desantarosa – Cuando La Noche Es Buena *320

Speaking of up and comers, can you believe this kid is only 15!? Keep an eye on Desantarosa, I predict big things!

My favorite conspiracy theory might be that our generation of 80s-early 90s babies was conditioned for this wave of electronic music we’re currently experiencing from a very early age… by Nintendo. Peanut butter and jelly, furry boots and tutus, video games and techno… some things just inherently go together.

Electronic Arts, one of the preeminent video game publishers in the world, has intelligently enlisted the help of some of today’s mega-producers in the world of electronic music to help out with the promotion of one of their pending game releases, Syndicate. With Skrillex’s effort already available for download as of a month ago, the Digitalism remix was just released earlier today. Here’s what ze Germans hav to zay:

“For us as electronic music lovers who grew up with games and love soundtracks, there was no way around re-interpreting the Syndicate theme! So what we did in our WWII bunker studio was imagine being in the game, creating a fast-paced atmosphere, turning all the compressors up and mixing classic soundtrack elements with techno. We wanted to make sure it sounds dangerous – et voila, here we go.” – Digitalism

All you have to do is head over to the Syndicate Facebook page, ‘Like’ it, and then click on the “Syndicate DJ Download” tab and you can get both tunes right now, FO’ FREE. Stay in touch with that page, as there will be even more remixes in the coming months from some more of today’s biggest names in dance.

P.S. Check Digitalism’s North American Tour dates on their Facebook and see when they’re coming to a city near you!
