Zone Music is a haven for modern Techno. The imprint’s founders, Gesaffelstein & The Hacker, have carved somewhat of a niche alongside their fellow Frenchmen over at Bromance Records, pushing for the cutting edge, bouncy, bassy Techno that we’ve all learned to love. Forthcoming on Zone is a 3-track EP from Maelstrom — a promising young producer from the West coast of France with previous releases on Sound Pellegrino, dirtybird, and BNR Trax. The title track of the Resistance EP that we’re premiering today fuses a love of Detroit Techno fundamentals with a new age French twist, providing for a uniquely indefatigable production. Preview “Resistance” below and pick up the release on May 29th. √+
Kill Frenzy‘s storming debut on dirtybird, the addictive, juke charged brute with its ingenious hip hop breakdown, is back for re-release with a slew of remixes from some choice label affiliates. Not content with the originals genre-traversing legacy (including plays from Soul Clap to Skrillex and pretty much everyone in between), Belgiums booty obsessed Kill Frenzy has rallied the likes of The Martin Brothers, Zombie Disco Squad, Plastician and Mark Starr to deliver their own take on the track, bringing the work out to brand new dance floors in the process.
The Martin Brothers (Justin & Christian Martin) set the pace with a characteristically heavy house bass line, the twisted “make that booty clap” vocal sample dancing over the driving groove. Zombie Disco Squad let’s the buttock-smacking claps take centre stage, while a clever percussion score and perfectly timed ellipsis make for certified ghetto house dance floor material. Dirtybird debutant by way of Croydon, Plastician, focuses on the bass elements of the original, creating a swaying dubstep rhythm where booty claps become glock pops before your very eyes, while Mark Starr opts for a similarly languid groove, without losing sight of Kill Frenzy‘s playful genre-splicing.
“Make That Booty Clap” became an instant milestone in the dirtybird canon and its great to see Kill Frenzy’s debut receiving such masterful reworks a year on.” - Claude VonStroke

Tom Flynn is an expert when it comes to House music. The UK producer has pumped out releases on some of the best labels in the game, including Hypercolour, Deleted, and of course dirtybird, where he released his superb Be Yourself EP late last summer. To add to his growing repertoire, Flynn has just released an unbelievable 4-track EP titled Everything I Am for Nick Curly‘s 8 Bit imprint, and it’s honestly hard to choose my favorite of the 4. Each are sexy, well-produced, and just straight-up solid dancefloor House music. Can’t get enough of this dude. √+
The majority of the GDD™ crew attended Coachella last weekend and had an absolute blast, so we’re heading back out to the desert on Friday for another fun-filled weekender at The Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs.

Last week my good friend Ian of Bixel Boys passed along dirtybird youngster Justin Jay‘s forthcoming Static EP, and I honestly believe this is Justin’s finest release (out of 4) on the SF label yet. If I had to describe the title track “Static” in one word it would be heavy, but it’s a unique heaviness that includes Justin’s Tech-savvy side. A bouncy, almost corrupted-sounding bassline defines this 118BPM tune, and it really fucking bangs. The second track, ‘Waves,’ takes you on an epic 7+ minute journey where Justin showcases his musicianship in a truly sophisticated fashion. He incorporates many different percussive sounds in this one, along with well-timed vocal samples and catchy leads. A big √+ for you Justin Jay. Keep this shit coming.
Last month the good people at Dirtybird uploaded a preview of a monstrous EP by Breach. Since then the tracks have received major support from BBC Radio 1/1xtra DJ’s, and have been argued (by us of course) as the hottest tunes from Miami. Take a listen and go grab yourself a copy!
