Over the next few days, we’ll be posting all the vital information to the events that we’ll be throwing in Miami next week for Miami Music Week. Once again, we’ve teamed up with OVERTHROW for the officialunofficial closing party of Ultra 2011. And yes, it’s at a full nude stripclub called Gold Rush. And yes, Miami badman and multiple DMC champ Craze, along with ATL trenchstep dude Heroes x Villains, along with a bunch of other DJs including GDD’s own BONES and myself will be playing everything from Juvenile to Joker. Pre-sale tix are $10 and you must be 21 to see the tata’s. Infamous photographer Bronques of lastnightsparty.com will be capturing the debauchery, so if you drink too much and forget what the stripper who gave you a lap-dance looked like, we’ll have documentation.
I’ll leave you with a good idea of what will be happening as featured in Caligula‘s music video for their track ‘Light in the Dark’ off their EP titled ‘The Rise‘
Oh, and there’s probably gonna be some Moombahton in there too.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the GDD™ movement, today I bring you a brand new mix tape from a man who truly does not need any introduction, the one and only Dieselboy. Dieselboy’s mix tapes have turned on generation after generation of heads to the sounds of drum and bass. From “Drum and Bass Selection USA” in 1996 to “Substance D” in 2008, each has become a classic for the genre. Recognized for their solid content, clever aesthetics, imaginative concepts, and intense energy, his CDs have set the bar against which other DJ’s mix projects are measured. Because he releases his mixes fairly infrequently, these moments are considered a special event.
His Mixtape’s are as well known as his ferious live sets are.
Dieselboy – Unleashed! is his most layered and nuanced studio mix to date. Returning to his old school mixtape roots where he isn’t limited to what tracks he could use or license, Dieselboy has used the opportunity to take Unleashed! to another level.
56 tracks were used to craft a deep and extensive 73-minute mix that reveals itself only after repeated listens. Steering away from banging out an “of-the-moment” forgettable dancefloor rinseout, Dieselboy throws down a wide variety of current and classic tracks and edits, wrapping up the mix with 25 minutes of finely diced dubstep that showcases his current taste in the genre and forthcoming tracks from his dubstep label, Subhuman. Finally, the project is given a tongue-in-cheek graphic treatment that references the exploitation of sci-fi fantasy movie posters of the 1970s. It looks and sounds hardcore.
Without further adieu I give you the mix tape Dieselboy himself considers his best to date! (Which is saying A LOT) Also be on the lookout for a GDD™ exclusive interview with Dieselboy in the coming weeks.
Kansas City might not be the first place you think of when it comes to hotbeds for emerging talent, but longtime native Spinstyles has been producing hundreds of good club ready tunes for the past few years, however, he keeps them all to himself. I finally got him to give away his dubstep remix of everyone’s perfect beachday anthem ‘Sunlight’ by Bag Radiers. In the upcoming months, he’ll have an EP coming out on Overthrow Music Authority. Who says Missouri doesn’t know how to party?!
After the huge success of his mixtape on Mad Decent, NY heavyhitter J.Rabbit has just released a two track EP on Play Me Records. The feature track ‘Ninja Step’, is a zen master’s worst nightmare. Continuing on the theme of his smash hit ‘Ninja Gaiden’, J.Rabbit turns up the ferocity for a peak-time destroyer. Buy the EP here.
Hello my fellow bassheads, I have a treat for you today. Underground dubstep legend Sub Antix (aka Keith Stewart) took time out of his hectic schedule to do a GDD interview! Residing in his hometown, Vancouver, British Columbia, Keith has been producing electronic music for four years. Now a hometown legend, Keith’s music has reached audiences all across the globe.
Keith’s take on dubstep is unique to say the least. While all of his songs possess the massive basslines we have all come to know and love, they differ from the everyday “big drop” dubstep tracks that have all started sounding so similar. Sub Antix’s perfectionist style is evident in his music, not only in the giant bass wobbles but in the melodic refrains that he has become famous for.
So, without further ado, I present to you a personal hero of mine, Sub Antix.
I was just thinking the other week, “I really hope that we can get another massive dubstep night going at CONTROL soon,” and fortunately my wish was granted as the don of LA dubstep, 12th Planet, will be headlining this Friday alongside a DJ set by NASA and a rare West Coast performance by Brooklyn producer Kingdom, who has just released a new EP on Night Slugs titled That Mystic. All you bassheads better be in attendance.
Please RSVP names to JONAH@GOTTADANCEDIRTY.COM to be on our discount ticket guest list for the night. Have all emails in by 8pm on Friday evening. Pricing will be as follows:
-21+: $10 before 12am
-18+: $15 before 12am
We’ll also be having theGDD™House Party room going on again every week now, so come on in and introduce yourself we’d love to meet you dirty dancers! The room is located conveniently in between the front-right of the main stage and the smoking patio.
The UK Drum and Bass duo Chase & Status is set to release their newest single “Let You Go” the 15th of the next month. Unlike most of their past releases this one has less of a drum & bass sound and has much more of a dance floor hit feel to it. But never fear if you do not like their newest direction the EP also has a great Drum & Bass Remix by The Brookes Brothers, also the producing duo Nero gives you their dubstep remix and also as another plus Chase & Status also include their “VIP” edit of the track on the EP as well. My personal favorite out of the 3 remixes is Nero’s as usual. Check it out!
With all the talent that rolls through Miami on a regular basis, it was only a matter of time before studio time led to finished products. On behalf of OVERTHROW, I present Miami’s newest bassheavy talent – Caligula. The two part production outfit is comprised of Damaged Goods and Grand Larceny, and they are set to release their bangarang dubstep EP in early September. On their first official remix, they give a solid thrashing to M.I.A.‘s ‘Steppin’ Up’. Her naughty vocals alone will make even the most basic remixes sound proper, but Caligula’s rude bassline should hoist them fairly high up on the HARD remix competition. Decide for yourself.
I can be extremely greedy at times. I don’t really like sharing, and as a youngster, I was often caught with my hand in the cookie jar. Luckily for you, the Miami heat must be altering my brain chemistry to get on some Mother Theresa tip for you to feast on another GDD EXCLUSIVE. So, dubstep. Even moms are listening to it, so its no surprise that some of the biggest known house players like Laidback Luke were caught getting wobbly at EDC. There were a lot of chefs in the kitchen when it came time to produce ‘Warrior’, most notably is LA badman 12th Planet, which probably explains the huge crossover ability for this track. Anjulie provides the catchy female vox over enough low-end to keep it interesting, but not too much modulation to be feared. Most shocking though is the LA Riots remix, which features a dub breakdown halfway through the song that is quite a far departure from their ‘switchblade‘ days *miss u 2k7. Hate it or love it, dubstep is here to stay (at least till the end of summer, then we’ll find some other genre to bastardize).
