New York’s burgeoning producer/DJ duo, Solidisco, brings a modern edge to the classic house sound, riding on the fringes of Studio 54 sensibilities. They consistently bring the funk and keep it groovy – as proven by their latest jam, “Top of the World” featuring Skyy. For this week’s GDD™ Guest Mix, Solidisco offers up a tasteful concoction of only their own originals, bootlegs, remixes, and unreleased tracks. Download/listen below and mark your calendars for Solidisco‘s remix of Mystery Skulls’ “Ghost,” featured alongside Fred Falke, Claude VonStroke, and Viceroy for a massive remix package out on February 18th.

Since the beginning of 2012, the Toronto-based Grandtheft has been sequentially treating its crowd to some cream-of-the-crop edits and remakes of tunes.

Michael Ullman and Julien Benichou, or Bastille, have been featured numerous times here on GDD™ since our humble origins in 2008, so as their careers have developed and their catalog of productions and remixes increased, I felt it necessary to get in touch with the boys and hear about what they’ve been up to firsthand. As I found out, Julien and Michael have been busy DJing around the country while balancing college, and to top it off, they’ve just come out with a new single, ‘One Night Love Affair,’ that we might just hear Alain and Armand playing out in the near future.
Read on for our chat about the Disco revival, sampling and licensing, and of course, their favorite cocktails, as well as a brand new mix made especially for you awesome readers here at GDD™. Continue Reading

The San Francisco based Chris Harnett & David Carvalho aka White Noize are back at it again with more pounding pounding… DISCO music? The veteran Dj duo have just released their next EP on DJ Dan’s InStereo Recordings called WEEKEND IN CALIFORNIA, featuring “Honey Love” and “Big Bright Lights.” WhiteNoize are known for digging up old disco classics and reviving them with club electro, fidget, and tech-house body parts. Their “big room disco” sounds have earned them top rankings on Beatport several times, not to mention the support of favorites Duck Sauce, DJ Dan, Donald Glaude, TJR, Stonebridge, Mustard Pimp, Treasure Fingers, and Umek (just to name a few.) These tracks are serious must haves for any DJs club sets, especially all you funky steppers out there. Check out the EP below, as well as the upcoming “Turn This Mutha Out” and a FREE download of their Cobra Starship Remix!
