Last year turned out to be a great year for the 19-year-old German born producer Etnik and for good reason.  With a plethora of well known producers praising the young prodigy for his dark and unique sound, Etnik exploded all over the EDM scene. The final kicker may have been when Skrillex shared Etnik’s newest remix of the track, Summer, by the Berlin-based indie duo, I Heart Sharks.  Ever since, Etnik has been on powerful producers’ radars as he continues to churn out brilliant tunes left and right.  I consider Etnik to be one of my favorite producers, so I could barely contain my excitement when he agreed to do a GDD™ interview and record an exclusive mix just for you dirty dancers.

TRE’S PICKS

PSYCHEDELIC IDM

FuzZ – Deep *320

FuzZ never has produced anything I didn’t love and Deep is no exception. Deep lures you in with a complex and long intro, only to drop you into a mellow, groovy and psychedelic wonderland that is similar to the best Flying Lotus beats. This track is not one to miss folks, click the link and grab the MP3 now!

FEEL GOOD TECH-HOUSE

YO Bill – Teddy Jammin *320

YO Bill has been kind enough to give away this track exclusively on this weeks dirt! Teddy Jammin is as technical as it is catchy, which can only be a good thing. The track’s groovy vocals have been mixed in with YO Bill’s recognizably intricate percussion to bring you a guaranteed dance floor hit!

JAW DROPPING TECH-HOUSE

Colour – Frequencies Modulate *320

Many of the die-hard Tech fans have been watching Colour with amazement, it seems the English producer really can do no wrong. Don’t believe me? Grab Frequencies Modulate, take a listen and you can send me your apology later. The track takes you on a dark journey that resonates retro-house chords, complex percussion and intricate synthesis. Seriously, grab this jam!

MELODIC ELECTRO

THIEVES – Pousser *320

The up and coming Los Angeles natives, THIEVES always impress me and Pousser is no exception. It’s an original groove that speaks to the duo’s rock roots.

LATE NIGHT LATIN GROOVES

Desantarosa – Cuando La Noche Es Buena *320

Speaking of up and comers, can you believe this kid is only 15!? Keep an eye on Desantarosa, I predict big things!

A little over an hour ago, Joe Maz posted on his Twitter than he just finished a remix of Sak Noel. Knowing that everything he touches is destined to go directly into my club folder, I asked him for the track on iChat so I could play it out tonight. Of course, he obliged, and also said he’d like to give it to the world GDD. ¡LA GENTE ESTA MUY LOCA!

Alright Dirty Dancers,

If you have been festival bound this summer then chances are you’ve seen our boys Dada Life destroying stages with the high energy DJ sets they’re known for. They have been on a massive US tour for the past few months and haven’t stopped for anything (example: they literally played 4 different gigs in 3 cities in 24 hours). One of the best things about seeing the Dada live is the surprises they always have in their infamous bootlegs, the GUERILLA FART series. Now, if you’ve done your homework and have paid attention to the new tunes they’ve been dropping in their sets, you would notice some new versions they’ve beefed up and squeezed out (Sausage Fattener, anyone?) with that infamous Dada noise. Today, they’ve given us the exclusive release of their newest ‘Guerilla Fart #12,’ a festival bootleg of Laidback Luke & Steve Aoki’s ‘Turbulence’ smashed with the silly classic Rednex anthem ‘Cotton-Eyed Joe.’ This has been a huge party break track in their sets and went off huge at this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. Enjoy it now for your own sets or just for that party playlist!

In the spirit of the festival season, we are happy to present our new collaborative project with HARD‘s record label Nitrus. To help up and coming producers get noticed by the top acts that headline Hardfest events, we have created a beatport micro-label called Dirty Nitrus (catchy, right?). What we aim to promote is a series of EP releases that will then be given the chance to get huge remixes from headlining artists, and then as well be added perform at upcoming Hard events!

Our premiere EP is by our good buddy Clockwork, who took the challenge to create that Hardfest-worthy sound and absolutely smashed it. The A-side/B-side release features ‘AYOO’ and ‘THINK’, two festival pounding tunes that bring tribal big room noise to the dirty festival house we love. Check them out below and get ready for this massive release, dropping next Friday, May 6th!

2010 saw a vast array of break out artists across the EDM spectrum, in the disco-house genre we were continually impressed by Russ Chimes‘ tunes. Last month we caught up with the British sensation, to chat about his recent Midnight Club EP and what’s to come in 2011. Here’s how it went:

GDD™: Hey Russ how was your Christmas and New Year?

RC: It was very good. Nice and chilled.

GDD™: Drink of choice over the holiday break?

RC: Mulled cider is a winner!
