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

• 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.

• 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.

• 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.

• 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.

• 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.


TK: My British pal SweetFA and myself have been given the honor to dish out to you the 38th installment of THE DIRT, and we couldn’t be giddier if we tried. You’ll find that I take a trip through history and shell out some of my all-time favorite garage/funkybass/dubstep tunes from the past that might have slipped under your guard, while my UK cohort gets you up to speed on the all the big house records that are just dying to become staples in your iTunes library. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we did compiling.

• Bran Van 3000 – Astounded (MJ Cole Mix)
MJ Cole has been one of my favorite producers ever since I first got into EDM. As a pioneer of of the 2-step and  UK garage scenes, he’s been putting out amazing records for well over a decade. This remix dates back to 2001, and I still regard it as one of the grooviest tunes in my collection.

• Lemonade – Lifted (Hackman Remix)
Riding on the coattails of MJ Cole comes the new generation of funky producers, and I rate Hackman as one of my favorite new artists. Last summer he burst onto the radar with his ‘More Than Ever‘ EP, and followed it up with his latest EP which came out this month called ‘Close‘, which I highly recommend.

• Joker & Jakes – 3k Lane (L-Vis 1990 Dubble Step Edit)
If you’ve recently caught the dubstep bug a la Skrillacks, then you might not have heard of the monumental smash that was ‘3k Lane‘. Prior to the era of ‘Scary Sprites’, tunes like this used to be the highlight of bass nights. Night Slugs hotshot L-Vis 1990 put out a few of these ‘Dubble Step Edits’ a few years ago that are way cool. Hunt for the other ones, you won’t be disappointed.

• A1 Bassline & Kavsrave – Lucky Charms
I’ve always loved tracks at the 130 bpm range that have a half-time dubstep bit to them. This track has been a staple in my bassy sets ever since it came out in ’09 and still sounds current. If you haven’t copped A1 Bassline’s ‘Shock Headed’ EP, do so immediately (Shock Headed is an 808 MONSTER).

• Zomby – Rumours & Revelations
I found this tune wedged at the end of Hervé’s ‘Ghetto Bass‘ comp and have been in love ever since. Zomby recently put out his second album called ‘Dedication‘ that is top notch.

• Skream – Rutten
I’ll close with one of my all-time favorite Skream joints. The combination of woodwinds + low-end sub-bass in this late-night serenade makes certain parts of my body tingle that I don’t need to expand upon. I also have to give a big congratulations to Oliver and his missus on their recent son!

TK – The Dirt #38 Part 1 Zip

FA: Striking a balance with Troy’s dutty selection, I’ve opted for the housey and techier stuff. It’s a selection of some of the freshest tunes out there, together with a few surprises from my personal stash! It goes without saying, all are tunes I’m digging a lot at the moment. Dance on, lads and ladies…

• Homework – Rally Racquet Club (Oliver $ Remix) [Beatport] √+
Kicking off with something easy: a nice tech-house groover from Oliver Dollar with some nifty phaser work.

• Ray Foxx – The Trumpeter (Original Mix) [Beatport] √+
This tune dropped on Defected last month and I can’t get enough of it. Solo trumpet cuts and sick percussion. Summery, feel good house vibes, and it’s a monster of a tune. Really big.

• Benzie – Homecoming (Zedex Data-Loss Remix)
Been giving Zedex’s new Zulu X-Ray EP play for the past few weeks, but decided to buck the trend and see what else they had to offer. The rhythm changes and synth work on this track are fire.

• Cirez D – The Tumble (Original Mix) [Beatport] √+
This tune by Eric Prydz’s Cirez D alias has been a set staple of mine for about 9 months. It features the nastiest rolling bassline I’ve heard to date. Heavy.

• Punks Jump Up – Chimes (Younger Than Me Remix) √+
I got sent the Younger Than Me remix of the new Punks Jump Up tune this week. Admittedly I wasn’t mad on it at first, but now I’m a fan – it’s a grower and well worthy of some Dirty action with it’s overdriven Italo bassline and use of cow-bells.

• Alex Gopher – Invasion (Etienne de Crecy Edit) [Beatport√+
If you haven’t cottoned on to it yet, be sure to check out Etienne de Crecy’s heavy edit of the new Alex Gopher track. It’s a banger for sure.

Theres no question that one of the most talked about and supported young electro tech producers right now are the UK-based duo known as Disco Of Doom. With a massive release (and widespread support) earlier this year under the name Sex Face, they’re proving the blogosphere their hype and gaining the respect of many big names. This new original track ‘Invader’ was released for download on the Annie Mac presents blog, so I thought I’d letcha all in on the free fire!

In the past week, I was given the privilege to have a few questions with French House DJ Alex Gopher about his upcoming 2CD release titled ‘My New Remixes’. His reworks range from artists like Shinichi Osawa, Air, and Kraftwerk, and his distinguished style shines through in each track. The digital release of the album will be March 16th, and this will be followed by Alex’s first North American tour in 10 years that will start this May. Be sure to pick up a copy on Beatport or iTunes next week when it drops and keep your eyes out for a tour date near you. Now, on to the quick six:
Gotta Dance Dirty™: First of all I just want to say thank you for taking the time for this interview I know you’re a busy man these days.
Alex Gopher: You are welcome!
GDD™: You are releasing a new double CD this month. What inspired you to choose to compile a remix album as opposed to producing originals?
AG: Well, I released a few EP’s in 2008 (Aurora vol 1&2, Belmondo EP, Handguns) which were quite successful in the clubs so after that came a lot of requests for remixes. And remixing is something I really love, and it puts less pressure on yourself than when you make your own tracks. So I did plenty of them these last two years, and it was important for me to produce a conclusion with this compilation to say, “Here is what I did musically these last two years.”
GDD™: Which remix would you say is your favorite to play in a set?
AG: The remix I did for Shinichi Osawa “Push”. I’ve played it in all my sets since I did it two years ago.
GDD™: Where do you see your sound going? Do you think that it will evolve as new sounds are invented/reinvented?
AG: My sound is very different when I do a track for clubs or for album or listening. But I’m very pleased when I do a club track that can be listened to at home. Remixes let me try new directions in my sound, things that I wouldn’t do in my own productions. It’s like a laboratory of research, afterwards I can use it in my own tracks. That’s why remixes are often really fresh & risky. After a few years of producing tracks quite noisy & distorted, I’m back to a more mellow sound, back to something more late 90’s. That’s for the production, because my DJ sets are still rough & dirty! (GDD™ approves this message)
GDD™: What festival are you most looking forward to this spring? Will you be making it out to WMC in Miami this year?
AG: No, I won’t be at WMC. We are working on the summer tour these days. As a listener, festivals are great, but as a DJ, clubs are much better!
GDD™: What artists do you listen to in your downtime?
AG: These days I’m listening to Vampire Weekend, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Julian Casablancas. For real downtime, Nick Drake is my favorite.
GDD™: Who were your top 3 favorite artists of 2009?
GDD™: Thanks so much again for taking the time Alex. We at GDD™ definitely appreciate it and hope your release and tour go very well.
AG: Thanks a lot!
Here’s a couple low quality tracks from the album that I’ve enjoyed recently:

This week at the Avalon, French House DJ and Cubemaster Etienne De Crecy will take CONTROL in Hollywood. Many of you might know him from his unbelievable visual performance that has swept across multiple continents in the past year from the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California to the O2 Academy in London. Unfortunately, EDC will not be bringing his cube along with him this time, but be prepared for a sensational DJ set that will make you jump and shake all night.

Please RSVP at JONAHDANCESDIRTY@gmail.com to be on the GDD™ discount ticket list (10$). Make sure all emails are in before 7PM Friday night to ensure your spot on the list.

As usual, we’ll have your favorite House Party DJs (///BONES, sweetFA, Tre) in the GDD room to get you where you need to go.

Just announced! Stoli Vodka will now be sponsoring the event with 1$ cocktails at the beginning of the night and 5$ cocktails thereafter. Make sure you come early and get your money’s worth!
For those that have not seen the cube, here is a killer video of a live set at Matter in London.

PS- Etienne will be playing at Voyeur in San Diego the next night, so if you can’t make it with us on Friday or you just can’t get enough EDC, you can get your French House fix on Saturday as well.
