If you were looking for a little pick-me-up on this Monday, then our buds at Main Course have just the treat for you. This free snack is compliments of LA’s rising talent Wood Holly, who delivers a thumping 808 bass demon in the form of Bowser. With early support from the likes of Worthy, Kill Frenzy, and the head honchos at Main Course, we figured you’d also like to enjoy this tasty bite.
In their own words: “I am writing this letter from the same place that this EP came from… I just read that we know more about the surface of the moon than we do about the floor of the ocean. Everyone seems to be so focused on a search for what’s out there that a lot of people ignore the things that can be found in here… A World Within is about the things we see when we close our eyes. Sometimes I think that this reality is more important than the one most people are focused on. These days I’m messing with the idea that deep down you already know the answer to a lot of questions that truly matter to you. So instead of helping everyone else build spaceships, this EP is about boarding a submarine that goes to the bottom of the sea.”
We’ve got quite a treat for you this Sunday afternoon. Our friend, Jayko, just sent us over a remix of the Rudimental track “Baby” for us to give away exclusively to YOU! Fresh off his performance on our Wide Awake Art Car at Beyond Wonderland SF, Jayko has had a string of releases this year off labels such as Sweat it Out!, Straight Up!, and Temple Music Group. This remix does not disappoint blending a touch future house and bass over the classic Rudimental vocals. Grab the track for free below and enjoy!
The newest release from the Main Course camp comes from Washington, D.C. based producer Nacey on this bouncy, two-side EP. Uptown Skank is a driving dance track punctuated by piercing stabs and hypnotic synths before finally giving way to a demonic bassline. Dirty Sweet is the flipside of the release, and maintains a smoky, backroom vibe as it chugs along before letting a funky sax riff take over. Like all Main Course releases, the music is free to download, but if you’re so inclined, you can support the artists by picking up the release on either Beatport or iTunes.
Like a phoenix rising from its ashes, the third installment of my Haute & Bothered mixtape series has arrived after a year’s hiatus. The aesthetic draws heavily from certain tracks that disavow basic genre umbrellas, and after crawling out of the deep house black hole that I found myself in the last year, it seemed right to enter the autumnal equinox with a grip of new tracks that subscribe to this mantra from the likes of Curses, Canblaster, SCNTST, as well as an original track from myself mixed into the fray.
After their first 3 originals picked up hundreds of thousands of listens on Soundcloud, power duo Du Tonc (AKA Matt Van Schie + Mighty Mouse) have announced their 4th release “Island” due out October 7th. With this announcement surfaced the duo’s first-ever mixtape, featuring new tunes from Yuksek, Juan Maclean, Shit Robot, and more. Download it below and read on for their upcoming tour dates.
Back once again with the 129th installment of The Dirt with Troy Kurtz & Three Wise. We’re covering all the bases this week with some tasty new snacks courtesy of our friends over at Main Course, an energized remix of Beyonce, as well as Kastle‘s impressive rework of Drake which is nothing short of class.

In a year that’s seen the fusion of genres like garage and house reach a fever-pitch, UK bass producer Hostage has been at the forefront of the sound. He’s giving away a pumping, low-end monster in the form of Nowhere to Hide. With a thick, bubbling bass and jacking drums, this tune could fit nicely in many an arsenal.
Celebrating their eighth release today, the relatively new Main Course label has firmly established themselves as one of the brightest imprints we’ve seen this year. Label boss Neoteric teams up with Australian heavy hitter Wax Motif with a seriously pounding track in Das Machines. The package also comes with a bit shorter, slightly more ‘epic’ dub that’s just as mighty. Both are available for free download, however, Main Course wants to feed their artists as well, so you also have option to support them on Beatport & iTunes if you feel up for it. For those of you in Australia, fellow Main Course label boss Astronomar is gearing up to start his tour Down Under in just a few days. More info + music video after the jump.
