This week in the guest mix we’ve got Florida’s slamming duo SLDGHMR. Signed to Le Castle Vania’s Always Never Records, SLDGHMR brings a creative and tightly-produced fusion of banging electro and barreling techno in a way that’s all their own. Their 40 minute mix explores the world of this savage, energetic, rampaging blend with tracks from the finest artists in that spectrum like Proxy, Maelstrom, Gesaffelstein, and Boys Noize. Looks like there’s some brand new unreleased tunes from them in there as well!
You can listen to the mix on Mixcloud below and make sure you go check out SLDGHMR’s amazing Reset EP. Tracklist after the jump!

The Indoesian wonder Angger Dimas just released his debut full-length album Angger Management on Dim Mak Records, crossing the spectrum of electro, hip hop, big room, hardstyle, moombahton and more. To celebrate it’s widespread acclaim and to give back to the fans, Angger is giving away “Jump Floor”, a bonus track off the album (and in my opinion the biggest and most stand out on the entire release). This monster takes an anthemic buildup only to drop into a big surprise – fans of the main stage will be all over this one, grab it below!

Le Castle Vania has never really taken any prisoners. In a musical landscape where the winds of change knock over the faint of heart or blow them into a field they cannot grow in, Le Castle Vania remains a steadfast entity who is remarkably true to his roots and more powerful than ever before.
The Prophication EP, out now on mau5trap, is a long time coming for the LA-based producer, and in a tongue-in-cheek naming of the title, is an indicator to an even bigger, badder release. It’s an immense piece of work; the four tracks each contain an explosive amount of sound engineering and layers, from live strings (done with the help of 300′s composer Tyler Bates) to rumbling bass lines.

Forever Kid are out on the town, generally messing with Hollywood. Check out who they mess with at the end. Any vandalism of that place is pretty neat in my book. Something tells me they’ll somehow receive a sternly worded letter signed by several lawyers for that one. If you happen to be several lawyers who represent a ridiculously fraudulent cult, and would like me to pass a sternly worded letter on to Forever Kid, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, thanks!
Forever Kid Fridays comes a day early today, and they’re after my own heart. In the years since the King of Pop has passed, we’ve seen plenty of hasty remixes leech their way up the blogs every August 29, his birthday. Today we have something different and special, a tasteful ode to the man and legend that was, and always will be. Forever Kid‘s signature dream-come-true styled synths reimagine these iconic riffs, bust their way through with flying kicks, and send us head first into the end, for that face-melting Van Halen solo we all know so well. They basically rocked out a 2013 pop anthem out of a 1983 pop anthem. I’m on listen #4. Rest in paradise, MJ.
The eve of revolution is upon us… the Los Angeles mystery that is Whiiite has been cast upon the blogosphere in the form of the first chapter to his saga – a graphic novel telling the tale of how Whiiite came to be, who he was, and maybe, what his purpose will be for? We’ll have to watch (above) and see what happens…

Forever Kid are at it again. This week’s Forever Kid Fridays features another big remix, this time of the dance classic Can’t Get You Out of My Head, by uberbabe Kylie Minogue. Our first installment of the series saw Forever Kid’s Beegees remix quickly ascend the ranks of Hype Machine to #1, and I expect nothing less from this one. Bold, layered synthwork accents Kylie’s ethereal and eternally sexy vocals in a hugely haunting way. At first listen you’re transported to the crescendo of a mainstage set from a festival in a dreamy retro-future. And there’s a killer solo at the end. Stay tuned and #RefuseToGrowUp.
Forever Kid is a feeling… a dream-come-true back to times when things were simple, free, and more fun. Influenced as much by the soaring solos of rock ‘n’ roll as by pounding big-room anthems, these two childhood friends from Sweden have come together to bring you Forever Kid Fridays on GDD™. We’ll have an exclusive throwback remix or original every other Friday, and it looks like some antics to be found in between. Today we have their big, crunchy remix of the Bee Gees classic, Tragedy. It’s Friday kiddos– have some fun with this one.
Just in time for another massive festival weekend here in LA, we offer up another giveaway from Whiskey Pete‘s label Switchblade, featuring the main stage worthy original “Nebula” by Rell The Soundbender & Savagez. Fans of the big room craze will be all over this one, so grab it below for free and support Switchblade Recs!

Bass lord AC Slater has a new EP coming out next Tuesday on his championed Trouble & Bass imprint, and he’s taken some pages out of his 2008/2009 handbook to put together 4 new originals that have a reminiscent AC Slater sound while adding a contemporary 2013 twist. Today, we’re happy to premiere one of these new tunes titled “Gunplay,” which has undeniable similarities to the wobbly Electro that giants like AC and Jack Beats used to pump out across the blogosphere back in the day. Perhaps our friend AC is predicting a renaissance with Return of the Underground, and we’re into it.
Massive support for the EP already in from Skrillex, Congorock, 12th Planet, Zinc, BBC Radio 1, Rinse FM…basically everyone. Get it. √+
