The guys are having a busy March along with the rest of us, hitting SxSW and Miami along with a string of West Coast gigs peppered throughout.

For our thirty-sixth edition of the infamous DIRT, we bring you a top 12 chart of some of the best tracks right now in electronic music from pretty much across the board. Though they all share a common dirty-ness to them, we chose these tracks for unique reasons – and what better way to convey that then to charm you with our personal opinion on why you should direct yourself to the download link immediately (the best way we know how to).

drink up dirty dancers…

///BONES

DIRTY
Felix Cartal & Keatch – Lazy Bird (Original Mix) √+
I’ve literally waited over a year for this track to be released, and for it to have stayed locked away until just a week ago is a marvel in its own. We all know that Felix Cartal has caught our attention once again with his recent productions, but the help of Belgium-based Keatch makes their collaborative EP’s Solar and now Animals unmatchable. Grab this in 192 and do yourself a solid and purchase the full EP here.

BIG ROOM
Swanky Tunes & Hard Rock Sofa – Feedback (Original Mix) √+
This summer wherever you are in festival mode, you’re gonna hear headliners from the main stage (you should know who) playing this massive collaboration between big room track kings Swanky Tunes and Hard Rock Sofa. This one also has the same riff as Daft Punk’s ‘Rollin & Scratchin’ – but takes it to a level suitable for crowds in the 25,000+ category. BIG.

DIRTY DISCO
In Flagranti – Worse For Wear (Punks Jump Up Remix) √+
The first time I heard this in the Light Year Summer Mix, I played the mix over and over just because of this track. The howling bass line behind the drums, claps and cowbells (with a hint of dirty sax) turn the original vocal into a drunken disco fire-starter.

BASS
DJ Fresh – Louder (Club Mix) √+
Even though I don’t play out dubstep (or bass music for that matter) in my sets, I still respect it very much because of anthems like this one. This track is special however because of the newly found sound of drum & bass hero DJ Fresh. Groundbreaking tune, a MUST even if you don’t care for dubstep. Grab this 192, but get serious with the 320 here.

FUNKY
Julio Bashmore – Battle For Middle You √+
This officially came out at the very start of this year, but I haven’t been able to stop playing it out in my sets, in my car, or any where I can feel some low end with this baby. Julio Bashmore creates a love child with funk, soul and bass driven rhythm. In fact, the lyrics in the tune actually ring true because they definitely make me wanna get up, stomp my feet, and get down.

FUTURE
Kry Wolf – 3001 (Original Mix) √+
AC Slater struck gold when he discovered Kry Wolf and signed him to his Party Like Us label. His production flies across the board, but this track is titled ’3001′ because it is takes you that far ahead in time to the future of the drop. Let this one grow on you, it’s the best kind of WEIRD you could ask for.

SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER
CSS – Hit Me Like a Rock (Dillon Francis Remix)
Another killer free tune from Mr.Francis. Radio rips have been floating around for awhile, but it was finally released this past week.

DRUM & BASS
Botnek – Jerpa (Botnek Drum & Bass Remix)
An uncommon Drum & Bass remix from this up and coming Canadian Duo. If you like this track, check out the guest Dirt they did a few weeks back for some more major tunes. They are definitely a group to watch.

MOOMBAHTON
Tittsworth & Alvin Risk – Pendejas
Great new track from two of Washington DC’s best. More along the lines of moombahcore. If you dig artists like Munchi & Dillon Francis you will love this track.

ELECTRO DISCO
LBCK – Instant Party
Great new track with a great summer vibe, Huge EP from the Long Beach based duo.

GRINDCORE
Bassnectar – Upside Down
A new release from one of the bass game’s heavyweights. It is just what we have come to expect from Bassnectar over the years: HEAVY HEAVY bass.

ELECTRO HOUSE
Lady Gaga – The Edge of Glory (Porter Robinson Club Mix)
I am usually not a huge fan of any of the new pop electro house that has been going around these days. But I must admit, I really like this track. The drop in the middle is worth the download!

ZIPPED UP
• The Dirt #36 – ///BONES & KMOC.zip (all 12 tracks!)

For those of you not already familiar, GDD™ homie YOBILL has been lighting up dancefloors on the regs up and down the California coastline for the past 18 months, headlining BLOWUP! SF and Electro Pop Rocks Berkeley, as well as shows at Avalon Hollywood, Exchange LA, and Into The AM alongside Laidback Luke, LA Riots and Steve Aoki. Based out of LA, YOBILL’s production mantra’s “Bongos not Bangers”, and the result’s an amalgam of New York house and the tropical sound that’s kicking up a lot of heat in the UK at the moment. If last year was anything to go by, 2011′s set to be a big one for Bill, you can catch him in action at Exchange LA this Friday, and in the meantime here’s some tuneage to whet your whistle:

I know my good friend Dirt McGirt already posted up Dillon’s newest “Fuckstep” remix of DJ Fresh’s newest d&b tune ‘Lassitude’ a few days back. I just wanted to give the sound a repost and let everyone know that it is now available for download off his SoundCloud in full 320! The remix is being fully supported by DJ Fresh and even though it did not make it onto his EP (due to Dillon missing the cutoff for submissions!) he still is backing it as an “official” remix! Consider it your gain and the label’s loss.

Not content with simply obliterating your ears every time he turns out a tune, our boy Dillon Francis has decided to get romantic on y’all and give you dirty dancers some “music to fuck to.” For this go-round Dillon took his talents to DJ Fresh’s d&b beauty ‘Lassitude.’ Building off the piano riff and soulful vocals of the original, what he essentially does is turn the track from a Friday night party starter to a Sunday morning baby maker. Have a listen below…

And now since I’m not content with leaving you without some ear-obliterating, head on over to Scion Radio and check Dillon’s guest mix he did for DJ Skeet Skeet‘s radio show.
SEXY BONUS TUNES

This morning our dear friends over at Ministry of Sound were kind enough to give us an exclusive for all you loyal fans out there. They have sent us over the newest label-approved remix of Afrojack’s super hit “Take Over Control” done by the English super producer Adam Fenton (Adam F). For all those who have been living under a rock the past 10 years, Adam F is one of the biggest names in the dub game. He has worked with everyone from DJ Fresh to Redman. Needless to say, his producing skills are second to none. In his remix of this notorious Dutch banger, he has successfully been able to take out the Dutch horn sound and create a subtle yet perfect dub mix. I highly suggest you check it out! Do not forget to pick up the 320 version when it drops November 7th on Ministry of Sound Records.
Cheers!

For all you UK based dirty dancers and even beyond that, any dubstep or garage fan to be honest; On Friday it was announced that London’s biggest pirate radio station, the legendary Rinse FM is going legit after finally being granted a broadcasting license. For those who don’t know about Rinse, it’s been running since ’94 and is responsible for giving airplay to grime, garage and dubstep, where mainstream radio wouldn’t. This move is going have an effect in bringing dubstep, future garage and uk funky even further into the limelight, which is wicked news as it’ll give producers the props they deserve for the tunes we listen to. You can stream Rinse online worldwide at rinse.fm – Their Stellar Sessions are fiyah, so check those out.
