This week’s Dirt comes straight to you from the child of summer, Tropicool, and myself, jonahberry. We’ve carefully blended together the perfect recipe for you this week by finding the funk, multiplying the new hotness, then finally dividing a spicy touch of special, we’re left with a tasty 10-course meal. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed curating. There’s a touch of everything in here, so keep your mind, and ears, open. You might just find something you never knew you’d like… Continue Reading
If you’ve frequented any Miami or Las Vegas mega-club in the last few years, there’s a good chance you’ve seen Joe Maz playing, or at least heard other DJs playing his tunes. As a member of Discotech, he’s been making DJ’s lives easier for years by remixing and editing about every artist under the sun. He just sent over an acidy rendition of Dirty Vegas’ smash hit ‘Days Go By’ that should go directly to your peak-time club crate.
Always a tad late, but that makes it more exciting right!? Haha, this summer has got me hooked on a lot of different styles, and this mix should hopefully boast that. Most of these are in my dj set as of now, as well as some unreleased heaters you dirty dancers are gonna go tits bananas for. I also get into my ‘tropical-midget’ house hobbying towards the end of the mix, with some great grooves and jungle jams as well. So wherever you are this summer, break that sweat to this over-an-hour mix (my longest one to date), and get ready to be attacked by bass in yo face and then brought into the raver village for smooth sailing… for the most part.
Holler and tell me what your fav track is on the mix, will yah?

If you remember back to a time on le hypemachine before the popular charts were invaded by shitty kid cudi mashups, then you might remember a trio called DiscoTech that would regularly be seen at the top with smashing remixes. After a hiatus, they’ve returned with a club-ready EP titled ‘Devestating’, which they’ve sent over fo’ free, so you poor ass college kids can go save your money for a tallboy of PBR for after class. They also sent along the acapella to your future girlfriend’s favorite track ‘IMMIA’, so all you budding producers out there without the tight connects can get to working, because I’ll be posting the top three remixes right here. Send all entrances to firstname.lastname@example.org and go tell DiscoTech how you burned the soles of your fav disco shoes on their twitter
Things have been relatively quiet for Boston duo Pirate Stereo since their acclaimed remix of Jace Everett’s ‘Bad Things’ last summer. But now that one half of the duo has graduated from Berklee College of Music and has moved back to Miami, expect a whole lot more from these young upstarts. They’ll be releasing a 4-track EP sometime around WMC, as well as playing a few shows with me (and pedro!) Because they’re such groovy dudes, they sent me two of their newest remixes to start off the new year, which include a remix from Danny Daze’s (Discotech) side-project called Senor Stereo, and a sexy rework of Simian Mobile Disco. On top of that, they put together an exclusive mix just for you guys.
