By now, you should be familiar with the chilled-out space disco grooves of the GDD™ favorite, Edwin van Cleef. I am very pleased to see that he is continuing his monthly mixes with this sixth edition of the year that he comically categorized on Soundcloud as “Pillowfight Party Jams”. The combination of his vibrant, lighthearted style and tasteful track selection makes for a very danceable listening experience that will keep that summer sun shining even though the season is slowly coming to an end. Take full advantage of it while you still can and do so to the sounds of Edwin van Cleef!

It seems as if Edwin Van Cleef will be coming out with a new mixtape every month, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. The French House/Space Disco/Sexy Time Music producer from Leeds has caught the ear of many in the past year or so, and I’m hoping he continues to impress until he can get out to the US for a few shows. Don’t sleep on this perfect-for-summertime mix below featuring the original, ‘Don’t Stop,’ from EVC as well as an opening TEED track remixed by Chad Valley that I can’t stop listening to, and be on the look out for Edwin Van Cleef’s Never Sleep Alone At Night EP slated for release in late August.

The Dirt is back in action again this week with submissions from the first 2 members of Gotta Dance Dirty, jonahberry and Tropicool (aka Dr. Schlongo, aka Daddy O’Climax, aka David LaMelza). We’ve put together 10 great tracks, new and old, for your listening pleasure, so kick back, relax, and enjoy these tasty tunes with a tall frosty IPA in one hand and a naughty school girl in the other.

• Donovans – FX1 (Canblaster & Panteros666 Remix) √+
Parisian duo, Donovans, released their FX1 EP in early June on Cheap Thrills, equipped with a fantastic remix from Rynecologist and this one from Canblaster and Panteros666. I just can’t get enough of the unique sound of Canblaster. Make sure to pick up his Totem EP out on Marble now.

• Brenmar – Taking It Down (Original Mix) [Beatport] √++
Now this track was released at the end of last year, but its inclusion in ///BONES’ most recent Summer Mix has invoked a revival of this song for me. Brenmar is also one of my top producers, as his sound meshes the aggressiveness of hip hop with the smooth sensibilities of great House music. Big fan.

• Joachim Garraud – Bang Bang (Dalcan Rmx) √+
This is a throbbing remix from French producer, Dalcan, off of Joachim Garraud‘s most recent EP, Bang Bang. The legendary DJ/producer has had an extremely busy spring and summer, releasing a full lenth album, 3 EPs, a release on Toolroom‘s Ibiza 2011 compilation, and seminal sets at Ultra Music Festival and Coachella. The Frenchman will also be playing live at Lollapalooza in a collaborative set with the Jane’s Addiction rocker, Perry Farrell. Wow.

• MyKill – Falling (Original Mix) √+
MyKill is a DJ from San Francisco that makes some fantastic funky ass disco. I actually found this track on our good friend Nate’s blog a while back and got into it again just in time for summer. Head on over to MyKill’s Soundcloud for some more great groovin’ goodies.

• The 2 Bears – In My Brain Is Like A Computer (Telling Me What To Do) (Original Mix) [Beatport] √++
Raf Rundell and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard are The 2 Bears. They make music and they wear bear costumes. Both are fantastic. Give this one a listen from their latest EP, Bear Hug.

Foreword from Tropicool:
These tunes are meant to make you infectiously dance in a unstoppable sex-craved fashion. Handle with care; both your marbles and your lady friend(s).  Stay horny my friends. (all are check plusses DUH!)

Tribal Disco
• Shindu – Happy House (Herr Styler Remix)
I was first captivated by the original in the Magician’s Magic Tape 11, only to then learn about the stellar remix package.  Herr Styler adds a very tropicool vibe showcasing tribal drums, flutes, and cowbells nestled atop a funky keys riff.  This song never ceases to make me smile, take off my clothes, or eat raw meat.  It’s the opening tune to Tropicool’s “A Turd in the Punch Bowl” mix.

Tropical Disco Funk
• Beni – It’s a Bubble (Round Table Knights Remix)
Everything we love from Round Table Knights has been eclipsed by their newest remix of Beni‘s “It’s a Bubble”.  Steel drums, Funky bubble sounds, and an infectious rhythm disco that leads me to believe I have restless leg syndrome.  Get creepy, and don’t go home at night.  “Hey street walker!”

Sexy Funky House
• Telonius – Last Night (Extended Club Version)
Telonius is a very sexual creature.  Listen to the lyrics; live the music video.  He has inseminated an incredible single here that’s dancefloor, afterhours, and bedroom ready, all hot and bothered.  Fucking element of sexy house, funk, and disco all in one has truly created an infectious, jean-tightening, jam!

Nudisco Glory
• Mighty Mouse – Between the Pavement and the Stars (Edwin Van Cleef Remix)
We can always expect pure genius when a song drops under the knife of Edwin Van Cleef or is presented live by the Mightiest of the Mouses.  These 2 juggernauts have come together to transform like Megatron and create one Decepticon ass-kicking tune. Euphoric yet groovy, very full bodied.  Includes lyrics.  Pregnant woman should not consume this beverage.

Sexy Feel-Good Funk
• Toro Y Moi – Still Sound (Voodoo Bear Remix)
I first heard this jam in the Mustang June Mix, and as the corners of my mouth began to curl up in utter happiness, the funky stings hit and I lifted out of my seat.  What a glorious feel-good song.  Summer daze, cold beers, and the hot curves of your buddy’s sister.  Truly a song of the senses; Get amongst it!

“The waves ≠ raves consists of hand-picked gems that inspire us, tickling and tempting our creative juices. Some are old, some are new, but it is what we are listening to now. They are groovey, flowing, and sun-kissed just like that perfect wave. They are uplifting and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. They sound the best with a babe in one hand, a cold brewski in the other, and the sand beneath your feet. Stay Dreamy.”
