I know what you’re thinking – Yes, that dirt babe has a GDD tattoo. Well, according to photoshop she does. The 42nd edition of The Dirt is a good one. Encompassing multiple genres and artistic styles, Jonah and Bones have come up with a 10-pack of tunes that hit all the right spots to get you ready for the weekend. Let’s get dirty.

1st Part: jonahberry – The Dirt #42 .zip

• Dennis Ferrer – Hey Hey (Atjazz Remix) √++
A great Deep House track. I love the continuous build of the vocalist’s intensity. A must have for late nights and early mornings.

• Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Trouble (Chad Valley Remix) √+ [Beatport]
Mellow, summertime vibes. From it’s opening avian sounds to Orlando’s soothing vocals, this remix released on Polydor earlier this summer will be a crowd pleaser to any sun-drenched soiree.

• Brenmar – Waiting On (Original Mix) √+ [Purchase]
This track was released on Buraka Som Sistema‘s Enchufada label for their 6th edition of Hard Ass Sessions. If you’re into Kuduro, you’re into this.

• Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team – Bassface (Ardalan Remix) √+ [Beatport]
It was such a pleasure having Teki Latex play our VS. party last week. This is the remix of Bassface that he played and the crowd went wild.

• Duck Sauce – Radio (Bastille Edit) √+
Our friends, Bastille, just came out with this edit of Duck Sauce‘s latest track, and it’s a goodie. 100% party starter. Come on out to VS. in Santa Monica tomorrow night to see these guys get down.

2nd PART: BONES – The Dirt #42.zip

HOUSE
• Spencer & Hill – Shy Boy (Ron Vellow Remix) √+
A groove master killer track, first time I heard this I was bouncing off the walls. Vellow takes S&H’s progressive house vibes with soulful vocals and rips in an unforgiving bassline that makes this a huge club favorite.

DIRTY
• Etienne De Crecy – Hope (Alternate Studio Version) √+
The already well known track got a rework by the Cube master himself, and it proves superior for the DJ set. Perfect if you’re like me and love a vocal intro you can blend into the previous track before it rips into its own transition.

MOOMBAH
• Slap In The Bass – Egypt (Neki Stranac Moombahton Edit) √+
First heard this seeing Nadastrom @ HARD Summer this year. The bass in this is humongous, definitely meant for big systems to do it its justice. If you dare download this one make sure you have some low end to really give the full effect. You’ll know what I’m talking about if you do.

TECHY
• Alex Kenji – Let’s Get This Thing Started (Original Mix) √+
Great intro track for those tech house, minimal or fidget sets. This sample has been used in several different tracks, but Alex Kenji proves it’s not overdone and makes sure of that in this funky techy tune.

DISCO
• Tensnake – Need Your Lovin (Original Mix) √+
You can’t go wrong with most of the disco production these days, and one of the leaders in that regime is Tensnake. His live album is pure gold from start to finish, and this is one of the many tracks you can’t listen to just once. You’ll get hooked and I’m betting this will get some serious play in your automobile. Make sure to pick up the Tensnake live mix HERE.

Easy Dirty Dancers, this week we’ve got an exclusive new tune from recent GDD interviewee D.O.D. The track’s a bootleg of Duck Sauce‘s new single ‘Big Bad Wolf’, which sees Dan O’Donnell taking the original apart, to bring in ravey Dominator synthlines and a moombahton backbeat. The tune’s a banger for sure, and with a drop-tempo 45 seconds in it’s perhaps the most DJ friendly moombahton track you’ll find…

This week marked the official start of summer, and what better way to welcome my next mix – dedicated the almighty festival season and of course the infamous 3 month vacation that all you people know and love. I’m sure most of you will be hitting the road to Las Vegas this weekend for the big one, so this is your goto firestarter for the road trip ahead. For all those otherwise, pump this at work, while you’re pre-gaming before going to the Avalon (or our VERSUS party), stuck in not cool traffic, or when the DJ you booked for your ‘glow’ party just ain’t bringin it. Welcome to summer my dirty dancers, get after it.

Just where we were last year when O-GOD released their bootleg of ‘Barbra Streisand’ to hold us over –  Shiny Disco Club‘s Viceroy has answered our antsy prayers for the next Duck Sauce festival jam ‘Goodie Two Shoes’ with a killer edit of the upcoming track that adds a cool jungle drum line to make it a DJ friendly bootleg as well. Expect to hear this version out until the big one finally drops! WELL IF I’M GOOD TO YOUUUUUU….

Duck Sauce – Goody Two Shoes (Viceroy Edit) by VICEROY

Viceroy‘s also put this FREE single out on Safari Disco Club Records, alongside releases from Louis La Roche and Bit Funk! ‘Sunny Daze’ is a a summer jam for sure and samples the one and only Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King’s  ’Love Come Down’ALSO A MUST.

Sunny Daze (Original Mix) by VICEROY

Not much really needs to be said about a collaboration between Chromeo & Elly Jackson (La Roux) that gets remixed by Duck Sauce. It’s like being dealt Aces over Kings…the Full House pretty much speaks for itself.

Duck Sauce beef up the beat of the original and zone in on Jackson’s signature vocals to serve up the first monster jam of 2011.

Cheers to Green Label Sound for the free tunage!

While the GDD team are reeling from the exploits of a fun filled weekend; I figured we should probably give you a rundown of how the Electric Daisy Carnival played out for us. With so many time clashes of the world’s finest DJs, I can only offer you one man’s perspective; so whichever sets I missed or overlooked, feel free to add your tales below, cos we wanna hear them.
Friday was a massive affair, the main reason I was there was to see veteran house supergroup Swedish House Mafia, who absolutely killed their live set on Kinetic Field. Unsurprisingly, the Coliseum was packed out, the gates to the main floor were closed when it reached capacity pretty early in the day, so a load of people were forced into the stands, but that didn’t matter. To be honest, the sound could’ve been bumped a little louder on day one in the Coliseum, but that was probably down to the fact that there were tens of thousands of people wiling out to Axwell, Angello and Ingrosso; the atmosphere was like nothing else. Highlights of their set were ‘One’ and the massive ‘Leave The World Behind’. If I’m pushed, the one part of their set I was less stoked on was their bunk drop of Blur‘s Song 2 intro which didn’t go anywhere, but besides that it was pretty dope.

Credit where it’s due, Dirty South played the best show I’ve seen from him all year; spinning to a packed out house before Swedish House Mafia played, he really set the bar at new heights. Meanwhile, over at the Cosmic Meadow stage, the bar was also being raised at a prolific rate; Bart B More taking to the stage after a wicked set from Dada Life, then throwing down some of the dirtiest dutch house I’ve heard in months. Travis x A-Trak, I was undecided on at first, but their set together was a pretty awesome tribute to DJ AM; the two playing electro and house bangers from the past year, keeping the party going with the fresh musical addition of Travis Barker‘s live percussion. The best set I saw all night was over at the Circuit Grounds, where we were able to witness Moby slaying a rare dj set. This for me was not only the best set all night, but it’d also rate among the top five sets I’ve seen this year. A particular highlight was raging to this humungous house banger:

The half of the Jack Beats set I managed to hear was pretty decent, a mixture of old and new house driven dubstep; obvious highlights were ‘Get Down’ and the two new tracks they’re set to release today via Herve‘s Cheap Thrills label:
If you dig these, then head over to Beatport where you can pick up the EP in full 320
So to round off the night, rather than head into the oversubscribed mess that was the Coliseum for Deadmau5, we scoped out Claude VonStroke who was throwing down his trademark minimal over at the Neon Garden stage. Such a sick set that sent us spiraling into Saturday.

Hit the second day fairly late on, making a beeline straight for Kinetic Field and the mainstage which boasted sets from Bart B More, Dada Life & Afrojack. Afrojack slammed out a very similar set to Friday’s one; though to a far bigger audience, all blissing out to his dutch house and electro, before the dream was shattered by Lil’ Jon who out of nowhere started MCing for the tail end of his set. Back to back sets from Sound of Stereo and Felix Cartal put us back on track and onto a good one, just in time to catch a hotly anticipated set from Laidback Luke who failed to disappoint. I think it’s pretty fair to say that downtown LA went Dutch for the weekend; the amount of bleep heavy house music that went on is going to be etched into my skull for the rest of summer. Back over at Cosmic Meadows, LA Riots threw down some jams, particularly memorable was this:

photo cred: Rukes.com
Even Wolfgang Gartner‘s set was tinged with Dutch House, as he exploded onstage with classic heavy hitters: ‘Wolfgang’s 5th’, ‘Undertaker’ and ‘Fire Power’. Entirely different to his set at Coachella, this one was far more of a housey affair. One act I’ve been looking forward to catching more than any other lately is Duck Sauce, the Fool’s Gold collab between A-Trak and Armand Van Helden. Arriving onstage beneath a thirty foot high duck, the duo proceeded to shred through their 75 minute set. Highlights of their show included GottaDanceDirty favorite Louis La Roche‘s ‘Sunshine Hotel’ as well as these:
If you dig this collab between Riton and Mehdi, they’re playing in LA this Saturday and you can scoop up tickets here
At EDC they played the unreleased original, but here’s a sick re-edit from Manila Killa
And finally, last but by no means least, the closing set from Boys Noize; who threw down a mixture of old and new – from Oi Oi Oi, Power and his collaborations with Erol – but threw it down super hard. The Boys Noize set was tight and ranks among the best I saw all weekend. Was hoping he’d drop this as an encore, but sadly he got cut short at 2am:
After hearing previews and radio rips of this for over a month now, here it is in full – This track is utter fire.
From the vault:
Big thanks to everyone who made the weekend a memorable one, particularly those who stopped us to say what up and compliment the GDD tees. You can get your mitts on them now HERE.
Cheers,
SweetFA

Deep breath. You’re almost there. Well, once you clear the rush hour traffic and take your dog to relieve himself, then you can practically taste that first cocktail of what’s sure to be an eventful weekend. I might be a bit of hypocrite for doing this as I generally don’t post a mishmash of different songs by different bros, but for some reason I’m feeling all kinds of sprightly today. *wanky ‘highly recommend’ sidebar to download all tracks*

Treasure Fingers – What Am I Supposed to Do
Just nabbed this brand new discoball destroyer from Treasure Fingers over at THE FADER. I think Craze just said it best via twitter today “this tune will help you get laid”. Either that, or be on your way to a triple digit bar tab.

Duck Sauce – The Motion
The aftermath of WMC left piles of ash and a mouthful of rumors swirling about Miami like the winds after a hurricane. However, many legitimate sources said Duck Sauce played the set of the entire conference at the Fools Gold Showcase. Two words: Barbara Streisand.

Gucci Mane – Lemonade (White Lions Remix)
You’ve heard of Gucci Mane. You haven’t heard of White Lions. Remember Sean Roman? He’s in a little side-project with some fellow Canadians that form this housey/disco outfit. The best part of this song: they stripped the cheese and added a crispy topping of groove.

Oliver Twizt – Another Step (Original Mix)
Another talented Dutch producer, however, you won’t find any bleepy car alarms in this Oliver Twizt tune. Loving the Aretha Franklin inspired minimal/house. Suited for late night no pants dance at your place after the disco.

¡PARTY TIME!
-LA- ///BONES at Avalon Tonight
-MIA- I’ll be playing at Whiteroom with Craze/Klever Saturday — $10 pre-sale

What a great week-before-Christmas gift! CONTROL will be celebrating its one year anniversary at the Avalon this Friday in style with Armand Van Helden. For those few of you that aren’t in the loop, AVH has graced the electronic music world with numerous party-starters since the early 90′s and most recently has collaborated with Fool’s Gold Records co-founder A-Trak to form the New York power disco duo known as Duck Sauce.

We will also have the GDD™ room open all night with your favorites sweetFA and Tre along with guest DJ appearances by Mr. Anderson and one of my best friends just in from Berlin, Matt Black. I have a feeling The House Party will be in full force and equipped with loads of weirdness this week. Just how we like it.
This is definitely not a show to be missed, so make sure you guys RSVP with us at JONAHDANCESDIRTY@gmail.com so you can get on our guestlist for the night.
Unfortunately, prices are a little bit steeper this week (15$), but if you ask me I’d say it’s worth it for the epic show that will ensue.
Here are some goodies to get you in the week-before-Christmas spirit:
